First of all,
Thank you for your patience. I realize it has been a while since I've posted a comic page. While I do not want to hide behind this as a shield, I've been experiencing some extreme depression and anxiety issues. Creative progress on just about anything I've been working on has ground to a halt, but I'm trying to get those gears turning again. I will not take offence to people stepping back from being a Patron until work properly resumes again. I do not want a single person feeling I am mooching or similar.
That being said, we've flirted with the 500 point Kobold Sketch goalmultiple times. For the sake of full transparency: there is roughly 200 dollars in pledges that are not being paid. These people are not receiving content, and I have taken to removing pledges that have failed to be charged multiple months in a row.
For the current comic project (and a look at my general approach to comics):
-Currently 7 of 9 (possibly 10) pages are sketched. [Ideally, this should be done by next wednesday. It should have been done for this.]
-Refined sketches will be made of each page once the whole story has been roughed out. [1-2 weeks]
-For this comic there are 5 (possibly a 6th) guest slot. 2 of these will be auctioned (most likely on FA, for sake of active community), but first the rest will be raffled at the $30 monthly group. I admit this raffling feels bias, and I have been considering rearranging how certain tiers are rewarded. While I want to give a special thanks to those willing to support with larger amounts, I do no want to make the 10 and lower Patrons feel left out. Perhaps I'm being too transparent now.
There's the news. Please feel free to comment, share some input if you have any. I want to be sure everyone feels they are getting what they deserve from this arrangement. Would people be interested in hi-res packs of finished works? Specific image sets or similar of specific IP (say, all the waifus of Overwatch for example)? If you're reading this, you're giving me money to draw art for you to see. I'd like to be sure I'm providing what you are wanting.
Thank you for reading this,
