Who are you?
Hello! My name is Lilly and I make a webcomic called Dark White.

What is Dark White?

Dark White is a fantasy horror comic that takes place in the world of Faya. There are no humans in this story, just a bunch of fantasy creatures. Some of these we’re familiar with, such as werewolves, dragons, fairies and elves. I’ve also the four horsemen of the apocalypse and an army of demons mixed in there to cause some trouble.

What’s this comic about?

Dark White is about a good old fashioned apocalypse set in a fantasy setting. Demons are sick of being stuck in the underworld, the gods are at war with each other, and the elves are unhappy in general. Our story follows a small group of miss-fits as they try put aside their differences and save their world.

How often do you update?

I have a full time job, so my comic updates 3 times a month. I’m not bi-monthly, but I’m not quite weekly either. I want to move to another planet that has more hours in a day, so I can draw….

I let people know ahead of time when an off-week is coming up.

What day of the week will you post the new page?

I used to post a new comic on the homepage on Sunday. But I’m changing things around a bit. Time zones are roughly Pacific Standard Time

Sunday night: I’ll post the comic page here first to Patreon members.
Thursday evening: I’ll post the comic page to the webcomic homepage.
The following week: I’ll post the comic page to DA one week behind my webcomic home page, like I always do.

So what is Patreon?

Patreon is a way for people to sponsor the artists that they love and support their work. Grateful artists give back different perks to their patrons for helping them out. Unlike other funding sites, which tend to raise for a big event and stop, Patreon is ongoing. Think of it as a monthly tip jar.

Why are you starting a Patreon page?

It makes me so happy that people are reading, enjoying this story, and sharing it with their friends. I appreciate that by itself and it means the world to me. This Patreon page is for those kind folks out there who want to give me a hand, and for me to give something back to them in return.

How do pledges work?
Since I updated 3 times a month and not weekly, you’ll only be charged for weeks I post a new comic page. You can cancel or change your pledge amount at any time, or set a monthly cap for pledge amounts. You can set how much money you want to give each month in your account settings. If you’ve reached your cap, you will not be charged beyond that for the rest of the month.

You can pay by credit card, debit card, or by a PayPal address.

Since my pledges are per comic page, you will see a “pending pledge” in your account settings (This has not been charged to your card yet.) Patreon processes payments at the end of the month, your pending pledge will move from “Pending” to “Completed” pledges at the end of the month. This is when your card will be charged.

Is Dark White going to become a Pay-to-Read comic?
No. I want to make this clear; I am not hiding this comic behind a pay-wall. You’ll still be able to read the comic just like always. The main website isn't going away. The only diffence is I'll update the main page on Thursday. That's it. :)

Thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty. I appreciate your support! It means the world to me.

  • An exclusive sneak peak of my sketch page before the comic is inked. 

Sometimes pages change from their initial sketch to the finish version. You'll see the changes first hand. And you'll get a sneak peek at the action before word balloons are added. 
Goals
$66 of $80 per comic page
This would help me to put aside the 200 or 300 dollars it take to rent a table at an artist alley for comic conventions, plus all of the above cost of web hosting, advertising, and glorious caffeine.
