Excited to make my first post on the forum for this contest! MER-HULK!
Hey all! So I rarely get on the forum, and I realized it's such a cool place to have an art community and get critiqued. So I thought I'd post a drawing I did last night and see if anyone was willing to critique this one. I recently went through the perspective class and am trying to work on that.
It’s been so sad seeing the ugliness surrounding this topic. People have no desire to offer forgiveness anymore. People judge people on their worst mistakes rather than the sum of their character. All of it seems like cyber bullying to me. And the irony is that so many people being the most vocal about this are probably people who profit off fan art (other peoples property!)
I completely agree with @Lee-White that so much hate could have been avoided with a simple conversation. Alphonso has only seen a couple pages of the book and made a judgement about the whole thing.
I would love to see people come to jakes support over on social media, it’s been awful seeing what’s happening there
@carlianne would love to share! Right now I have 15 patrons. I’ve had it for about 4 months now.
I’ve struggled growing the Patreon after those initial 15 people joined. Patreon isn’t meant to be a place where people discover you, it’s a place where you bring your existing audience. So in that regards I’m not surprised I haven’t grown much.
I’m terms of content, initially I had it so that it would solely be content related to a webcomic I am working on. That made it more difficult to consistently have content. This week I decided to change the tiers a little to make it about my art in general. So I’m hoping that helps me be consistent on it.
Overall I’m a fan of Patreon, I started because I got laid off as the pandemic hit, so any money was fine by me. I say it’s worth getting started even if you don’t have a huge fan base because you can always get friends and family to hop on board first!
Let me know if you have any other questions!
