Is it true that is I just draw sub-par porn and commission stuff for people steadily I can just accumulate practically free cash?
>>
Correct.

You either need to be really really good or find some really underrepresented niche fetish or just do furry/MLP to really succeed.

No.

I know a friend who is trying to make a business of patreon furporn comics. He's barely breaking 200 bucks a month and supplements it doing commissions. And trust me, the guy is advertising like crazy.

It's not magic money. It's a lot of luck and hoping that people don't pull their pledges at the end of the month

Cant shake the feeling that this patreon bubble is going to burst, like people are going to get donor fatigue or something.

Patreon works best when you have an audience before you start it.
>>
>>77684527
Think about it this way:

If you do something, as opposed to doing nothing, people may like it and pay you for it.

Have you tried stopping doing nothing?
>>
>>77684736
this

people always go around and say "wow someone got paid for doing THIS?" but they were the person usually doing that thing first or for the longest time. It's the same with lets players, twitch streamers, or fuck it even modern artists

This doesnt even make sense.

There are multiple creators, multiples artists, and millions of fans.

How suddenly the bubble will burst with everyone of them?

Also, it would be horrible, Patreon is one of the best things that happened for indenpendent artists.

I will never get what is the problem with Patreon haters. Is it:

>Stop liking and giving money to things that I dont like!!!!!!!!>:(

?

The difference in the amount of work and skill it takes to make a living out of pandering vs. not pandering is gigantic, and people are frustrated because of it. That's pretty much it.

It is not free cash if you have to put an effort to get it.

its called finding a consumer demographic you retard

Why would anyone go on its way to get mad for people giving their public what they want?


This just seems stupid. Its not like this kind of thing will make the things that you like, or the things that are worth spending your time, go away.

How long has he been doing these comics and what's the monthly output? It can take years to build up a reasonable fan base and you aren't going anywhere if you update less than once a week.
>>

>Why would anyone go on its way to get mad for people giving their public what they want?

No? Nobody is mad that there's pandering. It's the fact that not pandering makes things so absurdly hard that is frustrating.

I'm not saying I want patreon to fail I want to start one myself, I'm just weary of something that seems to be such easy money. Like the market is going to become real crowded and only the cream of the crop are going to be able to get donations.
>>
>>77684846
And besides people who make that stuff actually like the stuff they make.
>>
being an artist is pretty tough, man. it looks like my tablet broke before i managed to start bringing in a monthly income.

So it's like every other economy then.
Let me ask you this, what browser are you using right now? Compuserve? Prodigy?

being bad isnt the hard part but being consistent with your content is
you need to dish out shit on a regular basis to float
because people are hungry for content
no matter how shitty it is
>>
>>77684787
Because, they're are jealous they are getting tons of dosh and they aren't.

That's what it boils down to.
>>
>>77684912
I doubt it will happen anytime soon.
Most people would either support ongoing series (like webcomics) they're actively following or people they have a personal relation with. I think very few people would go like "so this dude drew porn I liked once, I gotta give him my money forever", but that's just my assumption.

It's already like that, though. Making a living on art isn't easy because art is accessible to everyone. Anyone can start drawing.
>>
Friends and fellow smut artists have told me many times I should get a patreon thingamajig. Then I put the idea by my followers and got next to nothing for a response, so I didn't bother. Seems like I'd be putting in twice as much work to supplement the patreon page in addition to my commission work.
