ok ... I've been checking recently and several artists are using patreon as a mean to get a return for the work they put into art in general. The idea of the site is really interesting, and basically means (as their own ad says) you can support and interact with artists you like.
basically you can either make a donation (as low as $1/month) just for the sake of supporting an specific artist, or you can pay for the content in a monthly/weekly basis, or pay for specific content etc.
Lets say, something like this (values completely arbitrary just for example):
free: low-res images (the usual 1080p images I post on DA) of the art I create;
$5 or more: access to WIPs, high-res images (my images are usually 10000x6000);
$10 or more: access to WIPs, high-res images, videos of process, access to the .PSD files of the drawings, tutorials. Possibly NSFW versions of the art (*).
About the NSFW art. I've noticed recently by browsing other artists that many people are interested in seeing 18+ versions of characters they like (shocking I know) and while initially I though "nah, why would I draw that character naked?" ... but then I thought "why not?". I bet a lot of people would be at least curious to see a 18+ version of my Yrel drawing for example. I think theres a small "voyerism" to see it. I'm not saying I'd draw characters actually having sex or anything like that, but I don't see any harm in good taste nudity.
so, my question is ... do you guys think that is a valid idea or I'm too crazy? lol =o
