So I've been debating patreon for a while. I have been wanting to try it for a long time, but the one thing that has kept me from starting one is I do not believe I have anything interesting to offer.
I have never believed anyone would pay me enough attention to pay for my crappy art.
I am my own worst critique, I know, but this is my opinion of the majority of what I do.
I try to do my best while drawing and even if I'm somewhat happy with the result I still dislike the most of it after a week. This is why I tend to upload things as soon as I finish them.
However, since I started the project with Aden &Co in Life in the Shadows
I have had the thought that maybe it would be something for patreon. Mostly because it is all to be made by me and it is going to be my twist on the traditional spy story.
I'm also developing this my way which means as far as I can make it I will have a reason for absolutely everything. Even if the reason for something isn't in the story itself.
This is also were patreon comes in.
With having a reason for everything comes backstories and a long list of historical turning points. For example Mr. Periculo (my wolf mafia boss guy) will have a complete backstory from he was born until the story is taking place. I don't think I will name his parents and all of his family tree, but I will have his upbringing in a nutshell and his life spread out. This, however, will not be mentioned in the actual story (as far as I know per today).
This is the kind of extra material I was thinking I could publish on patreon, in addition to WIPs, sketches, story notes, early released artwork and so on.
I'm also trying to stay a month ahead of time so that there will always be content every month, even if I for some reason cannot produce anything new.
I am still very hesitant on starting patreon because I still don't see why anyone would want to back this project. I hope it will and I will be eternally grateful if it does work. Honestly I don't know what I'll do if it actually work.
But mostly I'm doing this to get myself to work more on the story
But anyway, I'm going to launch the page on 1st October
If you want to follow my to date empty page here's the link:www.patreon.com/mimmimewww.patreon.com/mimmimewww.patreon.com/mimmimewww.patreon.com/mimmime
(And of course the link is black
It is between this white text and the one above)
Anyway, that is my thoughts on the subject. I don't need to hear how hard I am on myself, I am well aware of it and it doesn't change the way I think
But thank you so much!
