So I've been thinking about this for a while, but after the recent bout of medical bills, I've decided that I need to get tough and open up commissions in order to make sure we stay in the black. I've been considering the best approach for this for a while, so here's some bullet points that might answer a couple of the questions you may have.
- Commission slots will be available to Patreon subscribers before others.
That means if a slot opens up, folks on Patreon will get first dibs. Outside of that, it'll be first-come, first-serve.
- The price list, as well as the commission policy and the signup sheet, will be posted sometime this weekend.
Expect it to hit Patreon first, and then dA and Tumblr a bit after that.
- There will be five slots at first, and more opportunities later as these get completed.
I'm going to try to keep it rolling this time.
- Payment will be through PayPal. At this moment I'm not taking points commissions.
The hospital already told me they won't accept dA points as payment.

So a good friend of mine is doing Inktober, and she convinced me to go ahead and give it a shot too! What to expect - a bunch of random sketches with almost no cohesive theme. I'm going to try drawing something every day, but there's no promises. I'll probably do this month's Patron's choice doodle (which all you $10 supporters should be sending ideas in for NOW) in this style, too, so look forward to that!
Hope you all are having a good October 1st!
Just wanted to make a quick heads up post, since I totally failed to notice Hug a Giant Day sneaking up on me. XD Hug a Tiny Day is a little more than a week away, so for all you people that like to take your time (I'm definitely included in that) now's a great time to put something together for this fun day. ^___^
So with The Start of Something Big starting again, I have a few Patreon updates I wanted to share. I did my best to break it down into somewhat easy to read sections, but it's still a wall of text. If you have any questions or want to talk about any of this, either leave a comment or send me a note. I'll do my best to respond to either as soon as I can.
All Contributions will Count Double Towards Takai's Growth in this Chapter
Patron's Choice Sketches are Now Going to be Patron OnlySo I know that this is going to be a letdown for some people, but this is something I've been considering for a while. Besides the fact that I don't like uploading unfinished sketches and such to my dA, it makes sense to have at least a little content be Patreon-exclusive. I might still upload the occasional Patron's Choice that gets polished and completed here, but by and large, you'll need to check those out on Patreon. (No existing drawing will be removed from my dA gallery. That'd just be rude.)
Scheduled Deviation Releases
Along with the other changes, I'm adding a new tier! If you contribute at this level, you will get a 4 hour artstream (either private or public, your choice) where you get to pick what I draw. I can do a refsheet of your characters, I can draw this idea you've had in the back of your mind for months and just want someone to put on paper (digital paper), you name it. The only thing I ask is that you don't cross the line on things I'm seriously uncomfortable with (note me if you are unsure), but other than that, the sky's the limit. Because of the way Patreon handles pledges right now, your stream will be held the month after your pledge goes through. So if you begin pledging on this level in August, I'll get in touch to set up a date and time that works in September. To start with, there are only going to be two slots for this, but I'd like to add more as time allows.
A Brand New Reward Tier has been Added
New Reward Tier Pictures
Note: I will still only draw subject matter that I'm comfortable with. This reward will be fulfilled after the first payment has gone through, due to the nature of it. Please contact me regarding any questions you might have.
Alright folks, that's all the news, the whole shebang. Thank you for reading and supporting me - whether your support comes in the form of a pledge or a comment, it means the world to me. Thank you so much for being what makes this community amazing.
This Friday evening we'll be doing our monthly art stream (thank you to all the supporters who make this possible)! We'll probably going to start between 7-8PM, Eastern, so feel free to come by! I'll post a journal with a link when I'm ready to start.
So I had an idea I wanted to share with you all... I've been wanting to beef up the $1 and $10 levels on my Patreon, and Takai and I had an idea.
In addition to the stuff you're already getting, we thought doing a monthly Patron's Choice drawing could be fun! Here's the details!
- Near the end of the month, those at the $10 Level will be able to submit ideas (right now, it's just through Patreon Messages, or through dA Notes). If you choose to submit an idea through a dA Note, please remember to put your Patreon e-mail in it, otherwise it'll be disregarded!
- Sometime in the beginning of the month, I'll post a poll with all the ideas (as well as one or two Takai throws in), which will be accessible to all patrons at the $1 Level or Higher. (So if you're at the $5 or $10 Level, you'll still get to vote!)
Anyhow, let me know guys! Let's see how this goes!
Edit: It would help if I put a link to the Patreon.
