Before you sleep.

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.

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.
best,
Hus

Iíll be launching my new comic book on Wednesday - a personal fantasy project about a young warriormage girl who finds herself the unwilling centre of a prophecy fulfillment in the big city.

To support it, Iíll also be launching a Patreon account.

www.patreon.com/curtisallencomics

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!

I've had Patreon for a while and only have 1 patron. Could use some advise on how to gain more. I also need other creators to follow on Patreon.

Unless you had a crowd following you from the start, it is a full time job just getting new patrons. It took me a year to get 6 (but I know them all and they are wonderful!). Might also depend on what you have to offer? Mind you, it's a bit of a puzzle... when I look at others who do similar to what I do and they have many, many more supporters, I'm not sure how they did it (or I'm just not that good).

All that said, I still really like the platform and find it very motivating. I'm sticking with it.

There are, of course, nuances to the whole thing, but the basic principle is just your common sense stuff. Essentially, you need to build up enough of an audience of people who care about what you're doing. If you can do that, you've taken care of about 85% of the issue (at least). After that, if you play your cards right, a percentage of that audience will support you monetarily.

Most people who have difficulty getting Patreon to work for them simply do not have enough people who care enough about what they're doing, to say it plainly.

So, the real question for most should be, "How do I build an audience," and that is a big, deep question, but, in a nusthell...

a) Be good at what you're doing. Don't be lazy. You have to prove to people that you're worth supporting. You have to be good enough to turn people's heads. You have to be good enough to hold their attention. You have to be good enough to get them coming back for more on a consistent basis. Always work at improving your craft.

b) Supply people with content that they're not satisfactorily getting elsewhere. For example, my main character is black and there are people who want more and better diversity from escapist fiction, and characters who aren't eating off the plate of white characters, in which case they always eventually wind up in subordinate positions (ex: black girl Iron Man, black Green Lantern, and so on). So, I hopefully will have something to offer some people that will hopefully solve a problem they have.

This guy here is giving people gay superheroes, something that people looking for that aren't satisfactorily getting in mainstream media, and look how much money he is getting for solving a problem that some people have:
https://www.patreon.com/alexwoolfson
^ A lot of comics artists or writers have some dream to work for Marvel and DC, but personally, I'd much rather be where this dude is at.

c) Be consistent, both in quality and in your updates. People have to be confident they can trust you to put out content they will like and that you will PUT OUT CONTENT. There are a lot of people who flake on their comics-type endeavors because they underestimate the commitment they usually require, or they don't get the instant results they're looking for and more or less give up. Or maybe the whole thing just winds up not being for them, but in the end, the result is the same; they stop putting out content regularly, or at all.

d) Promote yourself and your work aggressively, but intelligently. There is sooooo much to say about this step that I'm not even going to try to sum it up shortly.

e) Be patient. These things take time. It takes time to build up enough content for people to come to a strong conclusion whether they really care about what you're doing. It takes time for people to find you. It takes time for people to trust you. All of this takes time, especially when you're on a very limited budget, as many people on Patreon are, which is largely why they're on Patreon.
