Update on Rat Rage Patreon!

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 30, 2014, 3:26 PM

Hey everyone! Just giving an update to the RR Patreon!





Right now, there are about 40 people supporting the project! That's so encouraging to me, to know that there are those out there who are willing to support my work in this fashion. This is, after all, just another of my own properties in addition to Cryamore. Not fan art or fan-fics of other's established characters (which is something I do a lot of), but my own characters that I created and grew up with. And it's just really heartwarming that any of you would be interested to that extent. Thank you so much. :happycry:

After being almost a month on Patreon, it helped me take an analytical look at how I set things up, how people are jumping on, and the numbers that all work in tandem with each other to produce that result. It's been a bit slower than I expected (of course, I didn't really expect to do even 40 people jumping on in a month at all, so that's kinda crazy), as I figured the amount of attention my uploads regarding Rat Rage (not the reimagining stuff) gets pretty reasonable hits and positive feedback. Still, baby steps, as the story is still starting off and the main story has yet to really pick up yet (it's a few more pages until that happens), let alone the full color art each page as we're still in the archives of Jinx's and Rai's background!

Also, to take into account that $1 per page is a bit too high (I'm surprised some even forked over $5 per page for the high resolution process art)! With my guaranteed upload rate of 4 pages a month, and with the optional Fridays, possibly getting to 8 pages a month, that is a little costly for a single page upload; resulting to $4-8 per month for regular subscribers and up to $20 a month for the 2nd level. So I'm quite sure a lot are on the fence about it because of the costs. Economy is still not that fantastic, I know. I'm also still coming up with ways to be creative on the rewards end without making things harder on myself for everything else that I'm managing right now.

With that being said, I reassessed what I'm offering, and hopefully, this will be better in the long run.

I halved the original pledge offerings, so now all one would need to hop on the train of support is just paying 50 cents per page update. The update + process versions (high res sketch, ink, and final art without dialogue), just $2.50. That makes things a bit easier to swallow, resulting to spending just $2-4 a month for basic subscribers.

I'm trying out a new reward, Swords Illustrated mice pictorial PDFs, for $5. There are those who love their fanservice, so I decided to make a reward that isn't intrusive to the main storyline, but still works well with it altogether, further embracing the lore I've created in Rat Rage's universe. Patrons on this new level will also be able to submit their anthro gal character (preferably mouse or rodent-like) to be picked and featured in a high resolution 2-page pictorial as well as a cover each month, like so:

 'Swords Illustrated' Pictorial Page Example 1 by Robaato



And only patrons on that level will receive that reward each month. And that even opens up for things like even more cameos involving those who support me and their creations in the main thing.

I'm still trying to think of more creative ways to make Rat Rage more interactive than I originally planned to, and with today's digital era, I can do a lot more in that regard. So as new ideas pop up, I will continue to add/subtract as we go along. And of course, if any of you guys have ideas, feel free to let me know!

Thanks for reading, and for those (you know who you are), for your support!! :)
