That's a question that I had in my mind for a long time. And what I mean about this is, what happened to the support on my Patreon? Back when I posted my piece of Katara, which was a picture that I did thanks to the fact that I reached the amount of money support I needed to make this possible, I thought this meant that I was gonna be able to keep the flow of making more artworks that are of the highest quality that I can make, and also give away the contents for it, because not only did I managed to make that illustration, but also made a recording of when I was working on it, which I used to create the sped up video I posted on my Youtube, but also gave away the longer versions of the recordings to my all my patrons, and the PSD file as bonus too. But then just a few days later, I lost more than half of the support money for next month, because I had several of my patrons dropped their pledge support.
This is taking too long, sorry about that, but anyway I just want to say that yeah I was disappointed that I no longer had the amount of support that I used to have back then, but I am over it, and I am over it because I have to face the fact I am not going to be able to use Patreon to collect the necessary money every month that I need to afford the basic stuff that I need or wished to obtain fast, like a more powerful computer that could help me out to have a way to make more artworks in a faster way, though right now the one thing I really wished for the most is a new pair of glasses, because the ones that I have right now are so scratched up, it's becoming a real bother to be able to see things clearly, it also doesn't help that they fit me rather tightly around my head too
I do feel I should had mentioned about this several months ago, but Idk I guess I didn't felt it was necessary back then. However I am not giving up on my Patreon, I am still going to use it because even the little amount of money that I am currently making it's still good enough to help me out pay a couple of bills and some food, however I had changed my Patreon in the way that it's more of a tip jar for me, and every weekend or monday of each week I continuously post new content in the form of all my drawings and sketches and illustrations in their normal sized format and without the watermarks. I can't however no longer make more videos because I can't afford to use Adobe Premiere which was what I was using to create the progress videos, to make this I used to pay over 50 bucks each month to be able to use it, right now I am only paying 10 a month so that I can at least be able to still use Photoshop CC since that is one my main art apps.If you can and want to support me on Patreon, then go the Patreon page to create an account and become my supporter www.patreon.com/raikoh?ty=h
Even just one dollar per month of support will grant you access to all my newest works that are in higher resolutions, and we are talking about 2500 px QHD or even 4K resolutions on some illustrations. And there are other new offers for the higher tiers too which you can learn about it on my page.And if you can't support me, then at least help me out by spreading the word about it, share my link to Patreon on your place, blogs, twitter, Facebook, whatever you use, the more people that can see this, the better.
Lastly now, I will very soon make an announcement about another different method, a new place that I recently created where you can get most of my Patreon exclusive content without the need to become a subscriber, or having to pay a certain amount of money every month. And if this new place becomes successful, I could potentially be able to create some new content where you don't even need to pay anything to get it, but that is if it becomes successful.
