If you don't mind sharing, and if you have a Patreon account set up, I would be interested in browsing your Patreon page. I know that there are several individuals who use this forum, who have Patreon accounts. There just didn't seem to be a centralized list of Patreon creators from this site.

If you could, just post a link to your Patreon page, and if you like, sum up why your page is the one to support.

Patreon to support the creation of my webcomic, Shiver Bureau. Also will have bonus content like b/w version of the pages, pdfs, drawing vids.

Do you have a patreon page or looking for inspiration for a future page?

Do you have a patreon page or looking for inspiration for a future page?

Just pondering becoming a supporter. I already would have, but I dislike the notion of effectively being a subscriber, as in monthly, as opposed to supporting when I want to, more as a recurring supporter. Patreon seems to adopt a one-size-fits-all approach.

Even still, I like the core concept.

Yea, Patreon is great and doing really well. There is room for improvement. It would be great to be able to do a 1 time support option. recurring payments freaks me out a little bit as well.

If you can keep up with the daily content grind you will do alright for yourself.

I've been on Patreon since the beginning and for various reasons haven't had much luck (100% my own fault.) Supporting my patreon page is a per content update (most are monthly.)

Ray Dillon has done alright for himself and he's just started. https://www.patreon.com/RayDillon

Your Patreon page says "per word update." The way that it is worded might scare some potential supporters away. Ray Dillion's Patreon page, by comparison, says "per month."

They create very different impressions.

you're right. haven't thought of that... it should be per content.

the wording is very tricky

Ray's and most Patreon creators do the monthly thing. guys that can keep up with the daily content crunch. creators like myself who are way more sporadic go with the content as it happens thing.

creators like myself who are way more sporadic go with the content as it happens thing.

Understood. Here's the issue, for me - what if a creator decides to create multiple content updates, within a month? The supporters' cards would get charged multiple times, right?

Is there a way for supporters to limit to a maximum number of pay outs in support, within a given period of time, such as on a per month basis?

Also, can a creator change the terms of their update schemes? If so, other than canceling one's status as a supporter, what mechanisms or controls are in place to preclude creators from fleecing supporters, if they wanted to?

I grasp that it isn't in the long term interest of an artist or other creator to fleece anyone, either money-wise or in terms of simply growing a following.

But, taking Murphy's Law into account, shouldn't supporters or potential supporters weigh such questions and prospects?

Additionally, since I favor more of a one-time or on an as-desired approach to supporting creators, rather than a locked-in approach, what are your thoughts, Paul, on supporters who pledge to support, and then cancel after a month or two? On the one hand, creators are likely thankful for any degree of support. On the other hand, it seems to me that this approach could generate regret. I really don't understand why they don't simply offer an option to do a straight forward one time pledge, and maybe even include a reminder of some kind, asking if the supporter would like to renew their pledge for the next month - or, increase or decrease it.

I know that supporters can always simply change their level of pledge, at any time. But, people being people, they tend to get busy, and simply forget about things charged on a monthly basis. It's one of the reasons that I don't take advantage of a lot of different offers that I encounter. Patreon's approach reminds me of that. It generates a sense of hesitancy within me to participate.

I'll address what I think your main point is... quoted from Patreon...

BASICALLY
If you have chosen to be supported "per creation" we give all of your Patrons the option to set a monthly max so that they never go over their budget. A monthly max is simply a maximum amount a Patron can cap their pledge at. This protects Patrons from ever being charged more than they are willing to spend.

It's a pain in the balls to give a "supporting" pledge and then canceling after you're charged the first of the month. It would be nice if there was that one time payment option.

Thanks, Paul!

I went in, just now, to become a supporter of you. The Patreon form wants a mobile number. I don't have a cell phone, anymore. I cancelled my cell phone service several years ago. It wouldn't let me finish the pledge, without a mobile number.

I did write to Patreon, just now, and voiced my annoyance with their form.

I tried, again, this morning, after receiving an e-mail response from Patreon. They said to click the pop-up box off. But, that doesn't work, since it only reappears. They said that they use Stripe as a payment processor. I haven't actually used Stripe, before - and I likely won't be using it in the future, if this episode is any indicator, at all.

I like Patreon's concept - but, I really don't like their chosen method of implementing that concept, Paul.

In the span of the last four days, my interest in using Patreon to support artists has dropped to nil. Why? Out of sheer annoyance with their data collection techniques. Others use it, and I can - and do - respect that. Heck, I wanted to use it, too.

I appreciate your time and your responses. I'll find another way. I can use PayPal, but that sort of defeats one of the things that I liked about Patreon.

Can't say that I've ever had that Patreon problem and I support several artists via Patreon.

MBirkhofer
01-26-2015, 09:23 AM
yeah. per creation is the ethical way to do it. As stated, you can set a max to ensure no silly spam uploading.


Per month is kindof bullshit. This is where the fund my life, and no obligation to actually upload anything on a timely basis comes in.

Charles

Still getting responses from Patreon. They say that it happens, sometimes. They also told me that they have a PayPal option, which I was able to utilize.

I didn't know this was a thing here, I am currently writing and scribbling a comic of my own, it has horror - fantasy - sci fi- erotica all in one story. I just finished writing the treatment and have moved on to the script, I'm writing the script as a screenplay as I plan on shopping it around the low budget/ indy horror circuit. But this will be a comic first, and I hope to fund enough money for a kickstarter campaign with Patreon.

Be warned if you become a patron, there will be nudity at the very least and all things lurid and diabolical in between.

I'm also new to this Patreon thing. :huh: Is this like Kickstarter? I'm still reading on the site.

Gonzogoose
10-02-2016, 02:41 PM
Not exactly. Kickstarter works around getting a lot of money fast for a single project, whereas Patreon is more about smaller, consistent amounts to fund your works in general. Someone told me a lot of Patreon supporters do it because they are fans, whereas with Kickstarter the rewards are key.

Stewart Vernon
10-03-2016, 12:04 AM
Yeah, my understanding is that Kickstarter is specific project driven... So you have an end-goal of a big thing you need to fund... and to help entice people to contribute you offer bonus things at certain contribution levels.

With Patreon, there is no specific end-goal... instead, you can setup different plateaus at which a contributor gets a thing. You can, for instance do a weekly comic strip and everyone who contributes gets to see the comic early, before you sell/post it elsewhere. That's it. No more no less. You can also set contribution levels where each patron gets a sketch or whatever for each month's contribution.

I'm not on there, but I've looked into it because of knowing some people who are on there. It does kinda seem like you already have to be someone known to get a lot of patrons, though. I don't see too many first-timers signing up and getting lots of initial contributions even if they are doing incredible work.

Let's help each other out. Maybe not so much by becoming patrons but we can at least follow each other. I'll follow everyone on this thread and ask that you guys in turn follow me back. Maybe we can cultivate our own little thing there on Patreon and help grow it a little.

I've got it set to monthly instead by creation and the reason I do that is because I'm constantly uploading artwork so I figured I would just make the patreon more so about the process than just about showing the pretty art. I'm guessing that's what most of the comic creators are doing as well as videos.

I do have my reservations about it but I figured I might as well try it out anyway. Also I haven't completely finished the videos but they are coming.

All the proceeds of my Patreon campaign go toward paying artists - because good work is expensive, and I respect the comic community too much to lowball talent.

Rewards include early access to comics as webcomics and print copies mailed to patrons as they're available.

My Patreon is to help fund the creation of new finished illustrations and help me shift from work for hire to original content (pinups, fantasy illustrations, erotica, and eventually my own comic book pages).

Its currently set to monthly, as I'm still dealing with a lot of work for hire projects and haven't been able to produce content specifically for patreon. But I've been giving patrons access to my work for hire and behind the scenes (for example, patrons got to see the development of my movie posters for 20th Century Fox), anything that clients have given me permission to share. And they get advance access to finished commission illustrations too.

Ideally I'd like to be creating original content fulltime. Support on there would help ensure that, and would also go towards needed supplies and equipment.

Hello Dear Friends,
- I' m a comic book artist, who worked with Image Comics (drew 3 issue at Five Ghosts - #15, #16, #17 Supernatural NOIR backup story called " Sleepwalking" with Fabian Rangel Jr. and Mike Spicer)
and BOOM! Studios (Clive Barker's HELLRAISER Bestiary #4 ) and many other indie projects.

Since 1 year I started to write and draw my own short stories. I'm trying to improve my storytelling skills since 4 months with a project called " Before You Sleep" This is a challenge with myself. The thing about this project, I drew and write over 80 stories in 4 months. Lots of them are one page short stories and some of them are 3- 4 page. There is almost every kind of story genres in this project.
Challenge is, I don't use pencil, sketch or thumbnails, it's a freehand comic project directly on paper with ink.

http://www.patreon.com/hus

There is a video on my Patreon page, you can see how i m drawing these stories. Let me know what you think about this project,
Please share & support this project, this is only job i' m trying to survive with.

Now I'm new to this so I was wondering if any of you, whether you've used Patreon before or not, had any suggestions on what would make good rewards to offer? How much would you pledge and what would you like in return for that pledge?

Iím thinking of rewards such as behind-the-scenes videos and the opportunity to have characters in the comic based on your appearance!

Please do comment with suggestions.

Thanks!
