So where the hell have I been?

Sun Mar 25, 2018, 10:09 PM by KissTheManiac:iconkissthemaniac:
So I want to say up front that I'm really sorry for basically falling off the side of the planet. It's been a really weird last couple of months for me, both in my real life and here on deviantArt. I'll spare you the details about the real life stuff and just explain what's been going on with me here.

Like I mentioned in a status post a while back, I hit a pretty bad case of burnout and artistic block. Usually I've found that taking a small breather and doing some personal stuff helped me find the energy to go at things full force again, which is why I've been posting a lot of random doodles and nonsense. Problem though is these recent me-time doodles weren't reinvigorating me the way it did in the past.

I’ve been thinking that part of the problem might be that I’ve been using the same medium for pretty much the last 6 years without any kind of change up whatsoever. With that in mind, I broke down and finally got myself a new scanner with the hope that hitting the pencil and sketchbook every now and then will keep my creative energy up.

So aside from getting these things out in the open, I’m also going to be throwing this idea out to either be embraced or ripped to shreds. So I’m considering starting a new Patreon campaign around this new sketchbook initiative. So here's how the Patron tiers will likely be arranged:

$1 Tier - Monthly Sketch Dump. All the sketches from the month compiled into a PDF and released at the end of the month.

$5 Tier - Weekly Sketch Dump. All the sketches from the week compiled into one to two images depending on how many are done. $5 tier Patrons also get to vote on the next month’s theme.

$10 Tier - Daily Sketch Dump. Every sketch the day they’re released at the original scan resolution. Like $5 Tier, $10 Tier Patrons get to vote on the next month’s theme with their vote counting as 2 votes. $10 Tier Patrons also get a sketch request for the month that fits within that month’s theme (certain restrictions will apply, such as no OCs and I’ll be the one deciding the pose and outfit).

$20 Tier - Daily Sketch Dump+. Basically everything the $10 Tier gets but some sketches throughout the month will be available as a YCH (Your Character Here) type of drawing. At the beginning of the month $20 Tier Patrons get to choose one of the YCH drawings and have a character of their choosing put into that drawing (size and pose stay the same but the Patron can add clothes, wings, a tail and *cough* other appendages if they want). Like the $5 and $10 Tiers, $20 Tier Patrons get to vote on the next month’s theme with their vote counting as 4 votes.

The Patreon campaign will likely start next month if the idea isn't completely shot down by everyone

So for an unintended Weird-Shit-Wednesday-Not-Posted-On-Wednesday contribution for the monthly theme, we have a mutated Dr. Penelope Young. Inspired by a story by :iconsteveabc: (PS If you're not watching him on dA, you should totally do it)

Mandatory sketch of Madame Thunder Thighs. You can't do muscley video game girls without mixing this girl into the fray.
