You can find my Patreon at the following link: www.patreon.com/ADobsonComics

It’s been a little over a week since my Patreon launched and currently I’m at about $51, which is little more than halfway to my first milestone goal. I thought I’d take the time to explain a bit better what my plan is about presenting the rewards for patrons and the like.

You’ll notice that in the donation section there are many $5 tier items. Some for SYAC, NSYAC, Skyrim, Alex Ze Pirate, and so-fourth... I wanna make it clear that this is only for ME to gague what my fans are interested in seeing. Pledging $5 to the SYAC tier does not mean you don’t get to see any of the $5 Alex Ze Pirate or Skyrim artwork. Anyone who pledges $5 or more, gets to see the $5 tier items. The reason I broke it up was because for me it’s handy to see “oh, 5 people pledged to A and 2 people pledged to B.” I had seen other artists do something similar so I just thought i’d give it a try...

Rewards (ie: Art) will be dispensed at the end of the month after payment has gone through. This is another tactic that I know a lot of artists follow, and more or less it’s just a safety precaution. Sometimes people pledge to see the rewards then immediately back out, and I sadly can’t afford that sort of give and take loss. Maybe if the amount reaches higher numbers in the following month I’ll be able to take more risks and upload rewards earlier for patrons, but for now I have to sadly be a little strict with it.

I will EVENTUALLY post all finished works here on DA... but that likely won’t be for MONTHS. So if you want to see more art from me, joining Patreon is the easiest way. I’m even planning to post some stuff for the lowest $1 tier just to give everyone something nice from time to time!

I think that’s all the additional information I needed to give... $51 isn’t too much, I’m afraid, but the more pledges I get, the more time I can spend away from doing freelance and working on stuff I WANT to make, like SYAC and Skyrim comics! If you can’t pledge, please feel free to tweet or post the link on facebook to help spread the word. And if you have any other questions, please post them here in the journal and I’ll try to answer them.

Hi :) I've been reading your comics for almost a whole year now and I enjoy all of them. I find all them hilarious, well drawn, and I especially love the opinions you've illustrated in SYAC. To me they're always great and humorous depictions about so many subjects with comics, art, games, etc. It's a shame so many people felt the need to troll your work constantly (smart move disabling the comments by the way).  Good luck with your patreon and keep the laughter coming :thumbsup:

Don't want to start anything but don't you think posting something on dA might help you earn potential patreoners or whatever they call it?

I've already told you before, Patreon content WILL be posted here EVENTUALLY.

But I gotta post it to my Patreons FIRST, and it hasn't even reached the end of the first month yet.

PATIENCE. Or become a Patreon supporter.

Sorry for the late reply and I'm aware of this and I remember. But fair enough but I'd recommend to at least post something for your followers on dA for potential patreoners as I said.
