We're currently at 4 subscribers for my first month of SubscribeStar. I honestly wasn't expecting to get this many so fast. The generous support means a lot to me I can't thank you guys enough!
As this is my first time using SubscribeStar I still have much to learn on providing rewards in a monthly subscription based system like this one. I have experience with Patreon with my SFW work but even then my Patreon wasn't as updated as I would have liked. I'm already doing a lot better as I've already prepared some this month's rewards (previews can be shown below). The only tier I'm lagging behind a bit on is the Thigh Highs tier (and any tier including Thigh High's rewards).
The one thing that's pushing me back the most with that tier is preparing a time lapse video as I will have to record my work on a piece from start to finish.
Well, actually the video will likely pick up after I finish a rough sketch as I like rough sketching without eyes (or camera) on me heh. If I weren't such a slow artist this wouldn't be as much of a problem but full colored pieces take me so long and I still have some commissions to work on. (I still had a number of commissions in my queue when I decided to open up SubscribeStar). This was a mistake on my part, I had been too excited to open up this page o w o;; I wouldn't want to rush my work either as it would likely lower the quality of my content, something I definitely wouldn't want to give to paying subscribers. If I do not manage to complete the rewards for the Thigh Highs tier before the end of the month they will be sent out the next following month (early September in this case). So, if that does happen, anyone subscribed to the Thigh Highs tier or Shimapan tier will receive their rewards a bit later than other tiers. I apologize for the wait and will properly update you guys if this does happen! I hope you understand!
On another note, the first goal I had prepared was a $50 goal, one that would unlock a physical reward tier. Considering I would have to prepare physical goods for both my art side and modeling/photos side $50 would only cover a small proportion of the cost to get the goods ready but I was willing to eat up the remaining costs. That was until I realized that not only do I need $150 minimum to have my earnings deposited from SubscribeStar to my bank (at least I think that's the rule) but I also have to purchase a PO box. Because of this, I pushed my goal up to $150. It may be a small thing to note but I figured it wouldn't hurt to be transparent!
Anyways, that's all I have to update for the time being. Thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day/night where ever you are ^^!
