Not only that, but it's incredibly motivating for me--I love creating stuff that you guys suggest, and getting your feedback and ideas on what you'd like to see/what I should include in a design/etc. is important to me. This platform is more intimate than other social media platforms and feels almost one-on-one. I try to respond to everyone's comments, so please feel free to ask any questions you have and I will do my best to answer!
Any and all pledges are incredibly appreciated--thank you so much for stopping by and supporting my artwork!
About the Monthly Patron-Picked DesignEvery month you guys get to vote on what drawing or design you'd like to see me create! I'm not always able to finish it in a month, but I try my hardest. :) In addition, Patrons will also get a discount off signed prints of whatever I create when they go up in my Etsy store. :) Here's the process for picking the design topic:
Everyone in the third tier and above gets to throw a suggestion in the ring for people to vote on. Those pledging $10 or more have their suggestion automatically included in the list of design topics to vote on, and I will select my favourites from the third tier patrons' suggestions (this is done to keep the amount of voting options down--you can always make the same suggestion next month if it doesn't get voted on the first time).
After that, I post the voting poll and everyone in the second tier and above is able to vote for their favourite choice out of the ones listed! Those in the third tier get their vote counted twice (please add a * to your comment so I know to count it twice), and those who pledge $10 or more a month have their vote counted three times (please add a + to your comment so I know to count it three times)!
After about a week or so, I tally the votes, announce the winner and then get to work! I also post photos and snippets of me working on the Patron-selected design here, and y'all get early access to the finished design. At some point, I also really want to try and record my process for these, as well.
