I'm PixelJail (they/them), a helpless wee illustrator caught up in a deviant dungeon full of naughty and dark fantasies, and I've been swept off my feet through a crazy journey that seems to include a a lot of nudity...
I'm going to be making some changes to subscriber rewards starting in August. Don't worry though, there should be nothing getting taken away, just more stuff! :D
So as some of you may know, I've recently left my job and also finished the major part of my SFW pixel art contract (which was two years long!) This means that I've got the most time I've ever had to just throw my attention into full-time illustrating!
I'm a bit edgy about money now since my income has dropped a lot, but with the new time and ideally no real problems from my sleep disorder, I'm hoping to increase my activity and reliability, as well as make SubscribeStar better and more attractive :)
Nothing is really final yet for the subscriber changes, but here's what I'm currently planning:
$1 tier will stay the same This will be at least one early access a week and access to sketches on Discord
$5 tier will get one addition A poll to decide on a Fanart series or character each month. The upload will be public, but you get to choose what it'll be
£10 tier will get one addition Will get access to short process videos on Discord I'll make of various pictures, of different aspects. Requests can be made on the topic. There's already one posted on Discord (subscribers only) if you'd like to see an example
$20 tier will get one (hopefully positive) change Currently $20 subscribers get a custom sketch of a single character. I personally find this a bit restrictive for both my style to draw, and for the subscriber to make requests for. The change I'm thinking will be to give myself as a wee art slave to the Subscriber for enough time to create a picture of ur choice! Anything can be requested and any number of characters, however the more complex it is, the sketchier it'll be. If you'd prefer I just spend the whole time polishing a simpler pic, that's cool too! I'm hoping this will allow a broader creativity and freedom for choosing ur custom pic!
Other suggestions I've had
feel free to comment on these if you like them, or if you have any other suggestions not listed on this post :)
--NFT collectibles of ...something (characters from Samhein, or different Glitter Slut outfits, or favourite bondage pics, idk) --Subscriber only Suggestions Streams I jump on stream on discord and take loose suggestions and sketching with whoever's around --Templates of stuff or like colouring book lineart of pics, just the lines and transparency let u fill in ur own colours
Some of u may have been wondering wtf has been going on with me lately. Well,, it's time for a full fresh start, a clean slate for my lil existence. I've recently quit one of my jobs and am leaning fully into the freelancing lyfe now. That means that I'm now officially going to be locked in the Jail with everyone else!
What a quitter
I've been too aware that the past several months I've been really struggling to keep as active as I'd like, and am falling behind on a number of my commitments, and even my upload schedules have become too chaotic. I've been sleep deprived absolutely constantly and really hating the feeling every time I post explaining why something is late or has gone wrong. It needs to change, and I feel like it's never changing no matter what I do or try. I just need a fresh start, and to take away the most problematic aspect of my schedule so I can focus my attention and energy in a way I've just never been able to before.
Okay so what does this mean? I still have some notice left to work so for about half of this month I'm still going to be a busy mess finishing off my last shifts and doing the desperate catchup I'm stuck on. But I'm also going to be making some schemes and plans going forward and I like to think early August will be around when I really get full momentum
What a schemer
I'm going to be making some changes to my commission prices, subscription tiers, and the styles of illustration I work in, as well as trying to better organise the settings and characters I create for and be more consistent in my output. I don't plan on increasing my commission prices from what they are, but the details will change and I'd like to add some new options on as well. Subscription stuff I'm not super sure about yet but I'm going to be looking at things I maybe haven't been able to offer before but can now with new time.
This means it's also a really good time for u to get in touch with me and give me feedback on tier rewards that u particularly like, or think are no good etc. All feedback would be amazing right now!
I really, really appreciate everyone's patience over the past couple of months. It means more than I can possibly explain, life has been a shitstorm for a while now and I've had no idea what to do to get on top of it. But now I'm taking the leap into full freelance, and it's a risk, but the support of everyone here and in the community has encouraged me that I can do this. I know I've said it a few times before, but things are really shaping up to change in a pure brilliant way soon. I've never had as much freedom to create as I'm going to have soon.
I cannae wait to see what gnarly shit we drag into the Jail with us!
