Hey Guys and Dolls!
I just finished finalizing the set up for my new Patreon page! I've got it all set up and live for those of you who may be interested in supporting my art in that manner - plus you'll get all sorts of goodies for becoming a patron!
Also, I've set up a Discord server for all of my fans to come and hang out in! Patreon patrons will have their own private channel where they can talk and hang out and ask questions! There will, however, be a general channel where everyone can come hang out and talk about art, games, or whatever they like!
The best part about Discord is that it's a free application! You can use it on your PC, Mac, or your phone (iOS and Android), and barring that, you can access the Discord servers from any web browser just by logging in! I think it's a fantastic way to hang out and chat with people, and it's much safer to use than skype!
Also, I recently had a very successful collaboration stream with the wonderful Noelle M. Brooks where we did 4 Pokémon fusion cards! After the fact, we talked about how much fun it was to do collaborations, and we're thinking about doing one every month! Each month we'll pick a day and a theme to do some ATC cards during a dual stream! This is really exciting for me! It's a whole lot of fun to do collaborations with other artists on Twitch!
I'm thinking about selling digital copies of some of my artworks for a few dollars in the shop - what do you think of this idea? Do you think that buying a digital image pack for, say $5, is worth the cost? If the image pack had 5-8 images in it, or included special sketches? I think it's a neat idea, and it's definitely something that I want to look into in the future, but I think I need to talk it out with you all and think on it a while before I actually go through with it.
I've also put up a monthly income goal over on twitch - I don't expect to hit it right away, but it will allow me to properly gauge the amount of income I actually generate each month, since I'll put donations, shop purchases, wishlisth purchases, and patreon subscriptions into the total. It's going to be interesting for the first few months that it's up, I think!
I think those are all the major updates that I need to go over for the time being -- I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and are having a fantastic 2016 so far!
