OK, it happened. Finally I pressed that infamous "launch"-button and my patreon webpage went online.
If you want to head over there right now - here is the link: www.patreon.com/shazycrit
For those of you with a big questionmark floating over their head, here is a somewhat deeper explanation of what patreon is, what I am doing over there, how you can help me achieving my goals and what you get in return for supporting me:
What is patreon?
Patreon is a page, where artists of all categories can be found. The special thing about patreon is not said artists, but their followers, better known as patrons (for a good reason). These patrons support the artists either with a one-time pledge (for a video project, e.g.) or with a small monthly pledge of a few Dollars. Usually the artists announce milestone-goals, and the patrons help them to achieve those goals.
What am I doing over there?
Like most artists, I have those milestone-goals and with the help of my patrons hope to achieve those sooner or later . Details about those goals can be found on my patreon page .
Plus, beside many other things, patrons get access to my patron-feed. Sort of a diary, nowadays better known as blog. Just that my patrons can (and hopefully will) comment on my brainless brabbeling. I would love to have a constant conversation going on with my patrons - thats the plan.
How can you help me?
If you become my patron, you can choose between two, let's say "tiers". Tier 1 means, you support me with a monthly pledge of 3$. Tier two means, you support me with a monthly pledge of 5$.
What do you get in return for your support?
The artists on patreon usually say "Thank You..!" to their supporters by granting them exclusive access to pieces of their work. I think that is a pretty cool way to acknowledge your patrons, so I am no exeption here. Here is how I say "Thank You..!" to my patrons:
-The tier one patrons (I call them "level three patrons" according to their monthly pledge) gain access to my patron feed.
Plus they gain access to the snakes, tentacles and the like section of my patreon posts. It starts today with five pics and at least four pics will be added every month.
Plus they gain access to the fantasy pinups section of my patreon-posts. It starts today with six pics and at least four pics will be added every month.
All these pics are patreon-only. I will not release them on DA or anywhere else. Exceptions: teaserpics - but these few will be censored or watermarked with a big patreon logo.
-The tier two patrons (I call them "level five patrons" according to their monthly pledge) get everything "level three"
Plus they gain access to the explicit scenes section of my patreon posts. This is the naughty place, full force NSFW, no limits, uncensored. No hardvore here (not my cup of tea), although very few of those pics may include traces of blood (scratches and the like). It starts today with five pics and at least four pics will be added every month. Patreon-only, of course.
Plus they gain access to the wip (= work in progress) section of my patreon-posts. This section includes wip-folders of all categories, each folder with ten to twenty pics. Pretty cool slideshow material, I am talking from experience . It starts today with five folders and at least four folders will be added every month. These, too, are patreon-only.
- Finally there is the monthly special reward: Every month a special reward goes out via e-mail to those who become my patron before end of the month, doesn't matter wich level. They will also recieve all the upcoming special rewards. Why e-mail: these pics will not be released anywhere else. That means: if for example you decide to become my patron in September, you will recieve all special rewards from September on, but you will not get access to the special rewards of the months before. These monthly special reward start today with two pics and the two wip-folders of those pics ( Patreon Teaser 006 ).
In the future, the monthly special reward will be either one ore two pics with at least one wip-folder coming with it.
Finally - I said that before, but want to make it clear again: to those of you who are happy with what I offer here on DA: Fear not, I will still put out pics here on DA, nothing will change for you.
Wall of text ends here, please wake up now.
