Patreon Feedback Needed!

Sat Mar 28, 2015, 7:45 AM

This journal was taken from a post I made on my Tumblr:

These past few months have been hard to say the least. I’m thankful for the people that have been supporting me both emotionally and even financially in these past months. I don’t think I would be functioning if it weren’t for you all. For that, I thank you.

But as life tends to continually remind us, nothing is ever easy, and we need to come up with our own ways to get by.

As some may know, I started a Patreon account a few months ago in hopes to see if I can set up a means to create more and still make a little income. I haven’t been working on it for obvious reasons, but I feel that now may be a good time to pick up where I left off. But I can’t do it alone. I need some help.

I’ve posted some original freelance artwork recently that have got a decent amount of notes, which is a big deal when you’re known for mainly fan created content. I want people to know that I can do more then draw Don’t Starve, Portal, and other stuff like that. But went you’re drawing for others on a regular basis, sometimes the creative juices run dry and you need someone to help give you some suggestions.

I don’t know what Patreon’s policies are when it comes to fan created content of already existing characters and settings, but what I’m looking for right now is feedback and suggestions on what you guys want to see from me for my Patreon.

Right now I have it set up where you can donate just a $1 a month to support me, but I also want to set up good reward goals to offer as well! For people that donate $5 or more (either per month or as a one time donation), I would do something special, but I need to know what my supporters want.

I need your thoughts, your feedback, your suggestions.

I need your help.

You can send me your feedback on my tumblr, or you can send it via email at

Hi your a favorite artist of mine :3 Anyways, I'm just a clueless 14 Yr old. Would you mind explaining to me what a free lance artist does ^^'. Btw LOVE your DS pieces.

Thank you. :)

A freelancer is someone that is 'self-employed' in whatever they do for a income. I work for myself, I don't work for a company or a business. It's not easy, but you get to be your own boss. And sleep in in the morning. XD
