So this is a thing I'm seeing pop up more and more recently. From what I've gathered, Patreon is a way to support artists' work through donations, and supporters are often given different kinds of rewards and extras as thanks. It's a really cool idea and I've seen quite a lot of success based on it.
I've thought a lot about setting up my own Patreon page - now that my University studies soon are coming to an end and job hunting is about to begin - but I'd like to do a little market audit first, haha. So this is my short questionnaire
- What do you think of Patreon?
- Would you be interested in supporting my art through a Patreon page?
- As a supporter, what sort of rewards would you like to see? Things I've thought about are preview sketches, "walkthroughs" for artwork, first dibs/discounts on commissions, tutorials, sketch requests and the likes. (I would not offer livestreams even though I know they're popular, because I tend to work in "spurts" and I don't think I could stay focused long enough to stream art... xD)
Thanks a ton!
