Patreon - Help Wanted

Post by LegendX48 on Wed May 11, 2016 2:05 pm

No, I ain't here to ask y'all for money. I need opinions on my current setup before I launch it.

For the "Why so and so is on Patreon" section, I currently have this:

Hey, name's Christian but you can call me Chris. I'm a college student who has taken way too long to find out who he is and what he has always wanted to do. I'm currently on track to head back to a community college to take art courses to brush up and further improve upon the basics and eventually transfer to a real school. That right there is the real goal here though: to improve. This nonsense aside, I've only ever taken two high school art classes but have made significant progress via self-taught means. I've struggled and climbed further up that hill, always trying to further improve my craft while aiming to one day turn it into something more.

I do portraits mostly, in between small bouts of figure drawing but beyond all that, I just enjoy writing and drawing and love comics and cartoons. As such, the style of what I do varies quite a bit often ranging from somewhere near realism to something pretty cartoony. It's all a big mess of doodles and scraps, really, but it's something that I hope will eventually lead me down the road to learning animation. Anywho, I suppose I should just get straight to the point now.

So, you may be wondering by now (unless you skipped here or just ignored everything) why in the world am I here? Well, while I have a small part time job doing something totally unrelated to art, it's exactly that, a small part time job that doesn't really pay a whole lot and it goes significantly faster than I'd like. Community college expenses aren't that bad, but I'd love to go somewhere like CalArts, or just any real University in general where I can keep improving my skill set. Places like those are overpriced like mad, unfortunately. Pledges of any level would help with supplies, future tuition, upgrades to help speed up workflow, feed my dogs, etc.

So, that's about it. Thanks for stopping by and giving this wall of nonsense a read!

The rewards are as follows:




The milestones are:

$100 - Everyone suggest an idea for a picture or short comic. Vote on the best one and I'll make it
$250 - Same as $100
$500 - live stream w/o me talking
$750 - Similar to the first but for a short comic


Any suggestions? Things I should change/fix? I might actually remove the $25 tier altogether and just leave it at $20

Honestly, it looks good. But *nudges you* you will need to srsly start committing to finishing projects (comics) when people start pledging.

I know, and all the comic stuff will be finished, colored and everything. I'm actually thinking about making little images for some of the reward tiers since some other artists have at least like a drawing of a jar for the tip jar tier

Just a heads up, changing all of my Patreon rewards to (hopefully) make them more worthwhile. I'm removing the $15 and $20 tiers altogether because, realistically speaking, I don't see anyone ever pledging those amounts so why even have them there? :\
