My New Patreon is LIVE!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 18, 2014, 9:32 AM

My new Patreon is now in full force!

So here's the rundown as to how things will go there! I hope to please everyone within their pledge level and I'm sure there will be adjustments along the way as we move onward on this little side-quest, but here are the terms of what's happening right now:

Every Friday, I will put up the week's batch of art. Patrons are then encouraged to go to their particular weekly batch based on their pledge amount and download the specific batch. These batches will include high resolution art and the PSDs for each image done during that week. Consequently, that's also when the "Paid" mark will go up for each week. (If you are not familiar with Patreon, the short of it is that marked payments are tallied up and processed at the end of each month.)

Opening up this means for you to download PSDs and high-resolution art DOES NOT give you the right to reproduce my work in ANY fashion. If I find out that my work has been reproduced or sold without express permission I will take legal action and discontinue the specific service entirely. Don’t ruin it for everyone else. This privilege is meant for educational and personal entertainment purposes, and I ask and hope for your utmost respect in that regard.

For fans who supported at the level of process/tutorial video rewards, these will be posted throughout each week via my Vimeo account a bit after each image is posted. The videos will be directly linked in Patreon, so there’s no real need to go to my Vimeo account to view them, but the option is there (for if you would like to download them as well).

A password specified on the Patreon upload will also be required to watch each video. Passwords also update from time to time, so later on, it may not be the exact same one. Everything will reflect via the Patreon post, though.

For those who supported at the $15 Character Request level, the terms here are very specific, so take note:

Each week, if your account is “OK’d” (meaning that when I post the weekly batch on Friday and your card/payment is “OK”), you will gain a Character Credit! What this means is that you will have a character to toss in a Continuous Ballot.

The Continuous Ballot is a “box" that I will randomly pick from for a day each week to illustrate a character from inside of it. All the character requests tossed in are persistent each week. For example, if you use a credit and toss in a request, and your character did not get selected that week, that character will stay in the box until picked. I may pick multiple characters a week at times to empty the box as time passes along. This random picking will be transparent; I will post a small video of the pick to ensure that I’m not playing favorites.

You can change your character request at any time if they have not been picked. I also have full control as to what pose the character is in, style of art (cels,painted, etc.), and how much is shown (full body, half body, bust), and canvas size. Basically, see this is a way to get my interpretation of the character. Character request choices can be original or fan art.

If you choose to jump on the pledge at this level, this allows for up to two characters to be illustrated on respectively, Saturday and Sunday of the week. Think of this as a mini-commission, in that I will draw the character how I would interpret them (almost along the lines above), but feel free to share anything you’d like to see with the specific character and I will take note on it and add it if I could. If this pledge is sold out for the week and you’d like to hop on, make sure to jump on the waiting list so you will instantly take the next open spot.

I hope I was as clear as possible on this, so think of this as a mini-FAQ. I will update this as we go along. Feel free to ask any questions here! Let’s gun for that NSFW milestone, hehehe!

Take care and thanks for your support!

hey rob, so i was thinking of setting up a Patreon myself, from a $ standpoint (based on your experience) is it worth it?
Sussoloc Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2014
Sounds interesting, but what would this mean for those of us who already have commissions outstanding?
Kyo-Musouka Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014
Alright, cool. :)
HEARTZMD Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014

Whats the catch?
Robaato Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
2 slots of 1 character per person for $100, though I just dropped it to one slot each week.
HEARTZMD Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014
Now 1 slot? Its has been sold out? Or did one person take two slots?
Robaato Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

Straight up seeing your characters come to life wit guarantee quality and hard work.

Man.  Kind of tough right now with the Holiday spending at this time,  but once I get things squared away and see what I can budget,  will try to support you on this.
Would love to see your interpretation of Gamma.   I have wanted to commission you since jumping on the Cryamore Kickstarter.
