Pledges will resume on the 1st of June, so please anticipate that! Also there is some recent news about a sales tax that Patreon is starting to apply to each pledge based on your state. You can find more info here: https://support.patreon.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043054911#talktopatrons
Patreon's new sales tax would only be a few additional cents for the most part, but just in case you're on a tight budget, I thought I'd let you know! You should be able to figure out your specific case in the link above, if that is something you're interested in.
Now back to Lusty News...
Hiatus is Over!
Whew I needed that break lol
Hey all! It's been a whole month, but June is right around the corner and I'll begin busting my bunny butt on our latest animations that will feature Toga and Gardevoir! >:3
Some things I realized:
What a nice time it was. I didn't know how much I needed something like that even with everything going on right now. It's made me aware of a lot of things, like how I've been going almost non-stop the past few years. I need to realize my limitations as far as work goes. I might have to shed the urge to constantly try outdoing myself with every animation, although I still want my level of quality to be high and consistent. I promise to always deliver good goods ;) Either way, I might be taking another break later on in the year after seeing how much a nice rest is worth, so don't be too surprised when/if that happens!
For maybe a year or so since the Quicky animation has been introduced, it has not been a short looping "quicky" gif as it was originally intended to be. If you look back, it usually was just a quick loop without any voice acting, sound, or buttons! But when people get excited, I can't help but make it into it's own full blown animation. Every waifu deserves a full-blown animation. I want to continue doing that, but our next upcoming goal has been hanging over me, and promising an interactive game every month is a bit out of my reach.
Don't worry though! The "Quicky animation" will continue to be the same length of an average animation as they have been. I'll probably call them "Mid-month Animations" from now on. (Or something with as good a ring as "Quicky" lol. Let me know any ideas in the comments). But our next goal of every month being an interactive game will be retconned. I will still do interactive games once in a while because they are fun, just the expectation of every single month is daunting. Also with Flash coming to an end in December, interactive games might be tricky too :s Either way I am looking into solutions when the time comes!
TLDR; Patreon is adding a sales tax, quicky animations will be renamed to reflect their actual length, and the upcoming goal of an interactive game per month will be changed.
June is going to be flat out great. Two characters I love working with <3 What more could I ask.
Excited to get back into it, see you all soon!~
