Hey everyone, I’ve decided to modify my Patreon account to be a simple $1 or more donation plan. Basically I’m allowing y’all to decide how much you think my artwork is worth. Everyone will get the same rewards wether you donate $1 or $100.

The way I had it before was a little confusing and kinda restrictive I think. I set it up with multiple $5 tier plans so that I could see which works people were more interested in seeing me spend time on, but ultimately I think that made things confusing and held things back.

Patreon supports will still get more rewards than other people though. You’ll still get to see sketches and videos and pre-planning and finished works... but non-patreons will only get to see finished works, nothing else (and a month later than everyone else).

For people who have already donated money to my patreon, there’s a possibility that this new change will require you to readjust your donation amount. I’m not entirely sure how patreon works with that sort of thing, so just FYI.

So yeah... $1 or $5 or $100, it’s all up to you. I just wanna make art and not keep everything behind confusing multiple tier pay-walls. Everyone’s equal and everyone gets to enjoy my work!

Thanks in advance for supporting me!
My Patreon:
  • Mood: Relief
  • Listening to: Stronger Than You (feat Estelle)
  • Reading: Twitter
  • Watching: Steven Universe
  • Playing: Marvel Puzzle Quest
  • Eating: Some sort of food like substance.
  • Drinking: Decaf. Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Why don't you subscribe to arbitrary social conventions on a meaningless site like Deviantart? Surely you enjoy reading multi-paragraph responses!

Andrew, I sent you that message in private, and was hoping for a private response, but I guess considering you decided to share it with everyone that you're okay with me commenting here.

It's actually pretty funny to me that you don't have the time to reply with a simple thanks or sorry, yet you can take the time to take a screenshot, edit out the usernames, and type up a rant on Twitter. You'd think that with how busy you are "creating art" (e.g. tweeting about Lindsey Lohan, CGI pizza, and lesbian cartoon characters) you wouldn't be able to afford the extra time to devote to calling me out.

But you know what, you're absolutely right, we aren't entitled to your attention; however, you aren't entitled to ours either. Ultimately, it's not your past, it's not the trolls that are going to drive away your fans. It's your terrible attitude towards your supporters that's going to do you in. That's the reason why of your 56,000 DeviantArt watchers only 27 decided to donate to you. You are acting like an unbelievable douche to people who have been nothing but kind to you.

There's nothing kind about sending me a message demanding I thank you for following your advice.

Your Skyrim comics crack me smooth the hell up, as an avid player.  Many of your other comics make me laugh, too, but I find Skyrim the funniest mostly because that's where most of my interest lies.

I completely understand why comments are disabled on your individual pieces. I fail to understand why people have such entitlement issues about commenting. I have enjoyed your art completely selfishly and silently for quite some time now, and plan to go back to doing so. If I wish to discuss your art, I generally forward the link to whoever I wish to discuss it with, and then do so. 

The only people you have to listen to are the ones you've specifically asked to critique your art. The rest of us may have whatever opinion we like, and are free to express it by spending money or not, but we are not entitled to your attention.
