This tier will be discontinued!
This tier will be discontinued!
Subscribers will get access to the following features!
♥ Commission dibs & discount: Unlimited commission access, subbers don't have to wait for a public opening to send in their commission info! Not just that, but every supporter gets a %10 discount off their total commission prices!
♥Videos & private streams: Timelapse videos are posted regularly, and I'll be doing mic-enabled streams often, so that I can answer any questions and talk about my process easier!
♥Subscribestar only content: Sketches, wips, progress shots, etc. Basically everything that I wouldn't post on twitter, as well as seeing everything on here first before I post it publicly anywhere else!
♥Free art chances!: Regular call for your characters, to be drawn as warmup sketches by me!
♥Commission discounts!: In addition to first dibs, subbers in this tier get a 10% discount!
♥Tutorials!: At least 1 tutorial / "Goat's tips" post a month! These include anatomy tips, coloring tricks, advice!
♥PSD files! : To those interested in the chaos that is my work files! I will pick 2 works/month and put up their PSD files for download!
Levae it to me to want to make some quality of life changes and not actually looking up every lil detail about said changes ghdjfls. I need a manager.
BUT the NEW $3 TIER IS LIVE!
And as I found out, I can't actually change the price of any existing tiers, nor remove them, while it has active subscribers (which absolutely makes sense).
SO it's up to you guys to please, change your tiers! :'> This is i guess also the best chance for my $1 patrons to decide if they'd like to keep supporting me with the price raise or not! As soon as either of the $5 and $1 tiers deplete, hopefully over the course of the next couple days, I WILL delete them.
Also a reminder that changing tiers WILL bill you guys for the $3 today! (or whenever you change over!)
....i just wanted to make this as easy as possible and also lower the price of my most subbed to tier and just feel better about it all and now i feel worse lmfao.
ilu guys ♥ i'm sorry i'm such a klutz.
So I was a dummy not to actually look more into it sooner (Thank you Kou for reminding me and bringing it up!!), I didn't even think about the difference between substar and patreon's way of charging people (where patreon does it at the beginning of the month for everyone, substar charge syou when you sign up and then subsequently each month at the same time) and how it would affect my price changes!
"If applicable, Subscribers are charged instantly upon switching tiers with the billing period reset to the time of switching.
When switching from the lower to the higher tier, Subscribers pays the full price of a higher tier, not the difference between the original and new tier price.
When switching from the higher to the lower tier, no credit is given to Subscriber, i.e. the difference between tier prices is not credited to Subscriber’s credit card. Switching to a lower tier immediately revokes access to all previously available content from a higher tier."
This is from Substar's ToS! As far as I understand, me changing the price of the tier will reset everyone's sub charge times to the same day? and it will deduct the sub price on the day i change the price automatically? So because if that's correct, I will delay the price change to the 20th - just so that everyone kinda has time to decide if they'd like to stay/resub/etc, and also read this post to make sure they know they are getting charged for *$3! *
I'm sorry I didn't look into this sooner.
♥Upcoming changes, open commission forms, etc! Please read! ♥
Okay, here we go!
So i always say how i constantly try to better myself and my content and think of what would be the best way to approach rewards and all that. And trust me it's causing a lot of headache haha. The content i would LIKE to do, I currently don't have the means to. Maybe in a couple years time.
But, regarding the content i Do: I really, personally don't feel like I have the grounds to ask for a $5 tier with as little as I provide. Streams have been scarce too because of time and life restraints, same for working on my tutorials and all that. (which btw i still very much want to make it a Thing, i just need to figure out a good way to convey my thoughts because most of the time i bullshit myself through art until it looks decent...fghgjk;; )
SO! Come the 15th of July, I will no longer offer the $5 tier! Instead, I will only have one, $3 tier. I know a lot of you are just here for the commission dibs and the extra content i post, and that is totally fine! But i was trying to find a middle road of still keeping a certain income through substar and also feeling just a little bit better about asking you guys's money. :'>
I will keep all the rewards/content, of course! I will still be posting pretty much everything on here, still be making videos, still will be doing streams! (i'm also spiritually prepping myself for my first ever voice stream! :'>) I will still be working on tutorials /etc, so that part won't change. Commission dibs and the 10% discount also stays the same!!
Which actually brings me to another change i'll be doing. I will be always accepting commissions from subscribers! There won't be a set window when i open and you guys can send in a form - you can do it any time you'd like to commission me! :) A steady flow of work also gives me some mental peace because i'll be less anxious about income haha.
If there will be a longer wait period for someone when they send in their form, i.e. i have a handful of commissions before i can get to theirs, i will let people know of course, and i will give approximate dates for first sketches/wips/etc! ((THIS WILL ONLY BEGIN IN AUGUST THOUGH! currently i still have a lot to finish, so if you were thinking about sending in a form, please wait until august! ♥ ))
With all this said, to my $1 subbers: I love you all and your support means the world. If you need to stop supporting me this way, i absolutely 100% understand, and it is okay! I don't want anyone to feel like they have to pay more or have to stay just because they have so far. To my $5 subbers: Same goes to all of you! I hope you guys understand my reasoning behind lowering my monthly sub price a bit!
If you guys stay, that's wonderful, and you have no idea how much this platform helps me keep my passion for art. If you feel like you need to step away, thank you so much for your support, and I hope you all enjoyed what you've seen!
