About Butterfree/Dragonfree/antialiasis

Hi, I'm Butterfree/Dragonfree/antialiasis, and I do... whatever I feel like, for the most part.

Since 2002, I have run a website called The Cave of Dragonflies, where I create content about the Pokémon franchise, including movie reviews (currently revamping the existing reviews to be nicer, then need to catch up from there), extremely nerdy math-filled articles about game mechanics, accompanying calculators that do the math for you, a zodiac, personality tests, speculative articles, quirky games, the Favorite Pokémon Picker, random nonsense, lengthy tutorials, fanfiction, and a sequence of increasingly elaborate ridiculous April Fools' Day jokes including a Scyther dating sim that I am actually still working on.

Meanwhile, I have a blog where I often post reviews of things and other ramblings, often about fiction. Stories, what makes them work or not, how adaptations go about adapting a work to a different medium, and the psychology of fictional characters are all things I'm passionate about and think about a lot.

Lastly, since January 2016, I have strived to draw something every day. I'm still not a great artist, but I'm pretty passionate about wanting to improve.

I plan to keep the stuff that I make free and available to everyone, but if you enjoy the stuff that I do and would like to throw some money my way for it, you can pledge to my Patreon. In return for your pledges, you can have some influence on what I do!

For $5 a month, you can make an art request every month for a basic sketch (one daily drawing). This should come in the form of a basic description of what I should draw, maybe a sentence or two, with a maximum of two characters involved, and I make absolutely no guarantees about the result being any good, but an attempt will be made. I will have to agree to the request and won't do anything that I'd be personally uncomfortable with (this would include anything NSFW). (I may have to adjust the pricing/frequency of this if I get a lot of pledges.)

For $15 a month, you get to make a more extensive art request every ~3 months (in place of the once-a-month sketch request for that month), and I will make an at-least-semi-effortful drawing out of it over multiple days, with coloring/shading and potentially even a simple background (but no guarantees on that being any good). You can ask for something complex here, but I'll tell you if it's too much. (Again, I may have to adjust the pricing/frequency of this tier if I get a lot of pledges.)

For $30 a month, you can make a request for something for me to do for TCoD. I can't promise to do whatever you ask me to - we'll have to come to an agreement - but odds are if you pledge to have me do something that I already vaguely want to do for TCoD, that'll be just the motivation I need to prioritize that, and if you can persuade me the thing you want is cool/fun, I can probably do it. (I do reserve the right to come back to you and ask for a different request if doing what you asked just isn't working out, though.) The frequency of requests you can make will depend on how much work the thing is; it'd be max once a month, but no more if I'm still working on the last thing you asked. If you wanted, you could also pledge to this tier to ask me to watch and review a movie or short TV series instead. (Yet again, I may have to adjust this depending on the number of pledges I get.)

For $35 or $45 a month, you can get both a TCoD content/review request and a sketch/more extensive request.
