A few days ago, a friend told me about Patreon and I finally created a page there www.patreon.com/Karbo
Patreon is a rapidly growing website where you can go and fund artists, independent creators or various projects you love and would like to support. When you decide to become patron of an artist, you pledge some money to support them and help them continue to do what they do. The artist sets up goals, milestones and rewards, such as goodies or access to special content.
In my case, I have been drawing Felarya as a hobby for several years. However, for the few last years, as I'm sure you have noticed, I have been forced to progressively slow down the rhythm at which I draw pictures because of my job.
I have to work a lot to make ends meet and to pay my bills like everyone, which has, in turn, clearly cut down on the time I can devote to Felarya and other personal projects. And I'm not very happy with that... Believe me, if I could, I would draw a LOT more ! :/
With Patreon, if you wish, you can support me and, in essence, throw me a tip for my work
This in turn will allow me to draw more for Felarya, doing various fanarts, comics and whatnot and bringing you new pictures on a regular basis. And you get some cool perks in return as well :3
I have that distant dream of being able, one day, to make a living out of this hobby and to go on it full time. Imagine ! If that happens I would basically spend my days drawing new pictures for you and making ton of stuff ^_^
Well it's still a dream for now but who know !
Something I want to stress out though : While Patreon can effectively be used as a subscription service , I will NOT post exclusive finished pictures on it with restricted access. That's a big no no to me. I feel this would be unfair, greedy and just very disrespectful to my loyal viewers.
If you wish to continue following me on DA just like before, that's perfectly fine and you won't miss anything
The stuff I will put on Patreon is essentially WIP, sketches, early previews of stuff to come and high resolution pictures.
I am very grateful of having so many people following my work for so many years and to have such a creative and vibrant community ^__^ Patreon is really just here for those who wish to go a step further in their support
So if you have the time, check my page : www.patreon.com/Karbo
And if you wish to participate in any way, it's very appreciated !
EDIT : Oh crap I just learned that but today is officially vore day o.O I have to do something !
