I am going to rework some of the reward tiers. If you donate at $15 or higher, you aren't going to see any changes. I am going to continue to offer the colored sketches at $15, and colored inks at $20. No harm done! However - and I know this might be a little controversial so PLEASE PLEASE let me know your thoughts - I would really like to bump the bust shot sketches up to $10, thus eliminating the $10 full bodies, as well as the $5 bust shots. The $5 reward slot (and up, of course!) would now give access to a couple request streams per month. So it would break down as follows:
$1 gets you access to the production blog (early pages, concept work, and the supplemental comic extras, exclusive to Patreon)
$3 gets you access to the production blog plus a special once-a-month request stream
$5 gets you access to the production blog plus bonus request streams I'll offer throughout the month (sometimes up to 4 a month!)
$10 gets you all the $5 perks, plus a sketched bust shot
$15 gets you all the $5 perks, plus a colored full body sketch
$20 is still the high roller, with all the $5 perks plus a flat-colored ink drawing that very often includes props or other extra tidbits in there
Another suggestion I will be trying is that I won't be sending reward art out until after a payment processes at the end of the month. This one seems pretty self-explanatory, I think! I've gotten burned on that a couple times so I gotta take corrective steps.
I know this might seem shocking or like I am suddenly getting too big for my britches, maybe, but I am sincere in wanting your feedback, to work this out in a way that the long-term donators don't suddenly feel they are having an unfair hike-up in their rewards. Everyone at $10 and higher still gets their monthly art reward, and those at $3 and higher get a chance for quickie sketches in the streams.
Wow, this is a lot to read, haha! So yeah just, PLEASE gimme your feedback on this! I appreciate your support so much and hope with this Patreon's growing success I can give you even more comics.
