Felt like another.
You do realize you can put in far less down to a single dollar, how much you put in isn’t set in stone. And it’s not like I won’t check the overall amount received to begin with. The $15 is just the highest the pledging will go and once that’s met overall regardless of how much people put in individually I’m going to put up an image.
And if you think $15 for a fully rendered artwork is too much then how about you go fuck yourself. Half-assed twits on tumblr charge double to triple that for something that exceeds even my commission rates. And you claim “highschool kids and impoverished teens” but you’d be surprised how many people aren’t. And even if they were, the teens nowadays are far from “imporverished”. I don’t see the average teen lugging around a nokia e73, fuck me I don’t see the average primary schooler lugging around anything less than a smartphone.
So don’t you tell me to “drop my prices” this isn’t a commissioning service, it’s a pledge for support. You give however much you want to help the creator. and every. Bit. Counts.
OH LOOK AN UPDATE
that aside, I started a patreon page, not just for pinkamena but for all type of art. I’ve not got the hang of it yet but if this lifts off hopefully it’ll help me earn a more stable surplus, as opposed to what little I can earn every few months off of commission work. Thanks to those who did help last time round with commissions and signalboosts though. If things go well, expect more updates in the future.
I gotta go fiddle with and balance the patreon page. I did a demo 30 min painting video, and that should be up as soon as I can get a hold of a video editing software and I finish editing it.
Hey guys, just letting you know .I’m still alive, but the blog is at this moment very much frozen, I’m sleeping two hours a day constantly to keep up with work and my own studies so I barely have time to even glance at this blog, I won’t drop it completely though I’ll let you all know when I can start updating again.
Been a year since I started this blog apparently.
Still haven’t gotten out of the financial rut I was in previously, and thanks to Mr.Abbott, the university students and basically anyone who isn’t the richer 20% of the population are getting fucked over, I’m in deeper shit than before.
Having said that, I’d appreciate a little help by any means, getting me more known would help me find commissioners, for one. And two, if I start getting constant income from art, I can possibly drop one of the other jobs I’ve been running to try sustain myself. Ergo, more free time.
And since I know most of you only lurk your dashboards, here’s the commission rate I’ve had up for almost a year now on the main page. Which people frankly haven’t seen at all.
But of course, just spreading the word is help enough. I’ll see you all next time when the pink pone occupies the majority of my brain.
This happened a few days ago.
Lost what little enthusiasm I regained.
I mean, don’t get me wrong I’m used to getting shit thrown at me via anonymous mail and getting flamed, but it gets tiring when I gotta deal with that kind of fuckery constantly for ever so long.
And quite frankly, it’s draining especially when you’ve invested so much time and effort to recreate something that you’ve liked and people shit on it like its some fucking third rate, well. I can tell you it does wonders to how you feel about working on it at all.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably still update. It just means that it’s not likely to happen any time soon. It took me a few months to get enthused about this piece of shit again. Now that I’ve lost it, who the fuck knows how long it’ll take this time.
In the mean time, feel free to think of this rant post as filler.
