About SatsumaLord

Hello all, this is SatsumaLord here and if you don't know who I am (in case you somehow stumbled onto my patreon page without seeing any of my work first), I'm a furry artist.  More specifically though, I'm a furry "fetish" artist, meaning I draw a lot of pregnancy, weight gain, breast expansion, etc., that happens to also be based on "teh furriez" that you see all over the web; and if by chance you'd like to check out my work, you can easily find me at places like deviantArt, FurAffinity, and Weasyl.

Okay, so with introductions out of the way, the big reason why I started this patreon page is because I wanted to further explore my own ideas, characters and stories; maybe even delve into making webcomics about them.  =3

The thing is though, is that I have to rely a lot on commissions in order to just "get by", and making something purely for myself is no longer financially viable (meaning that if I were to draw something for myself, then I'd end up actually losing money; and that's because the time and energy I spent making something "just for me" could've easily been spent working on a commission, and thus actually getting paid for that work).

Now don't get me wrong; I both love and appreciate all of the commission work that I have gotten during my artistic career.  Such business has helped me get out of many a tight spot and it's my intention to continue offering commissions within the foreseeable future.  At the same time though, I don't want to be one of those artists that only  do commissions and draw other people's characters for the rest of their lives.  I want to be able to do pieces for myself and for my fans that also happen to enjoy my characters too.

And that's where you guys come in.  In order to make this work, in order to be able to do more with my own characters, I need your patronage.

It doesn't have to be much; it can literally be just a dollar a month.  You're certainly welcome to give more if you so choose (especially since at higher tiers, you can get access to stuff like polls and the Suggestion Box), but for the most part, it doesn't have to be all that much.  Believe it or not, a dollar goes a long way, and if you can find it in your heart to offer your support, it would be truly and immensely appreciated.  :)

Oh and in case there's any concern about where this could possibly lead to, no, I'm not going to be turning this into a pay site.  Everything that I make through Patreon (whether it be images, comics or even just sketches) will eventually be featured on all of my art pages, and can thus be seen by the general public.  Patrons however, will be able to see my stuff days (or even weeks) in advance, before anyone else.

So with that in mind, please feel free to support me as a patron.  Every little bit helps and your pledges could make all the difference.  :)

UPDATE: To try and get a more accurate idea of what I'm bringing in through Patreon, I've instituted a new policy, which you can read more about here.

UPDATE 2: As of December 13, 2016, I'll be using the "charge upfront" Patreon model, as instituted by Patreon itself. You can read more about my decision on the matter here.
