Hello everyone! I hope the holidays were good for you, and I hope you have some new resolutions for the new year! I know I do, and most of it involves...this!
Ok, imma keep it real with you, I have been slacking...HARDCORE, here on patreon. I only really intended this to be a tip jar with some extra goodies to help give me a bit of support, but considering its been several months with quite a substantial amount of patrons coming in and out, I feel guilty not fully providing content. I've been trying to add a little something by putting stuff up here first (most of the time), but whenever I tried to do EXCLUSIVE content/polls, to be honest, I could never really get into it...and half assed content is NEVER acceptable. However, starting next year, Im going to be doing some major restructuring to make sure I can provide content that'll be easier to provide, and make it worth your while.
1 - Getting rid of raffles - Could never really get into em and Im VERY inconsistent with them anyway ( in fact, I think i only did...two! TWO OF THEM! )
2 - Try to keep Animations on here longer - Usually I post animations/gifs on here a day before I post them online, but I do plan on making more bigger project this year, so for those I'll make sure to assure at least 3 days of exclusivity AT A MINIMUM speaking of which:
3 - Start Posting more WIP's - At least for the bigger projects. wether its showing storyboards/thumbnails or entire scenes, I'll try to keep you all posted on every step of the process!
4 - Possibly introduce a "New tier"... - Ok lets keep it real ya'll, we all know what really sells on this site, and quite frankly, it IS pretty fun to make...BUT, if Im gonna be doing this, it'll be for the stuff I want to draw, but if I need help making a decision, I'l be sure to utilize the polls PROPERLY. Again, this is a BIG maybe, but if I do go through with it, expect nothing but exclusive pin-ups and whatnot >:p
And for now, the biggest change, and the one Im most excited for:
Project Vantablack ( AKA : ACTUAL original content! )
Ok, so I've mentioned before that I've been wanting to make my own original things, preferably a webcomic of some kind! Problem is, I wanted to wait a bit so that my actual skills can Improve and have a base audience big enough to get things going. However, over this past year I've kept shifting my goals and never making any progress on it...But not anymore. Once I've accumulated 15k Followers on twitter, Im going to start the process with World-building, Charchter Designs, and so much more, and it'll be HERE, on patreon before anywhere else! Thats right, Im going to be showing the process step by step, and patrons are gonna be able to see it first ( And see what the ACTUAL title is going to be instead of some vague placeholder, lmao ) . Plotting everything down and getting a feel for it will be the goal this year, and hopefully, If I play things right, will release the first chapter and start going with regular updates by the end of 2020, if not sooner! Its an idea I've been wanting to for a while, so I hope Its something you all can enjoy! Ultimately, my goal for 2021 will be to sustain myself off patreon and a bit of commission work on the side, being able to make the content that I REALLY want to make without worry! More details will come soon, and considering on how close I am to my start conditions, it'll be VERY soon!
And that should be everything for now. But for a TLDR : Gonna be getting rid of some unnecessary stuff, introduce new ways of providing content, and start the process of getting my own webcomic going, and make it Patreon exclusive first!
A huge thank you to everyone whos been supporting me, thanks to you I can go month by month with a bit of assurance of stability, and I really appreciate it ;v; I'll do everything I can to make it even more worth your while in 2020, and BEYOND! Thank you, and have a great day -Boo
