Personal Quote: "Fortune favours the prepared"
I’m currently looking at Patreon from a new angle. I generally don’t like the concept of crowd-funding, which is how I’d always seen it, but as a different avenue of distribution it might actually be useful. Especially now that so many other artists have already gone before me and built up an army of patrons. I wouldn’t be asking people to sign up to yet another webpage purely for my own purposes. Chances are; you’re already there.

My original idea was to start dumping content onto Patreon that would otherwise have been distributed via The Apsara Portfolio under the “Beasts and Babes Sketchbook” title, but then I read the user guidelines and they seem just as squeamish when it comes to smutty content as everyone else.
Guy getting torn apart by bullets and exploding in a shower of red gore? Fine.
Male and female genitalia coming into contact with one another? Oh my god. Think of the children.

A revised approach is to post content there, along with selected elements from the sketchbooks, which is probably a little too smutty for DeviantArt, but not to a level where people start trying to shut my account down. Essentially just very suggestive pin-ups.

I have no plan on thinning out the content I post here on DeviantArt, nor do I intend on forcing people to start paying for content that has thus far been free to view.

There’s still a bit more I need to read up on before I push forward on any new plans. I always approach new things with caution. In the meantime, I’d love to hear what people (especially existing Apsara customers) think of the idea.

Hey Sir Jack, I've got a question to your sequential art character Arthur.

What exactly is his Job? Does he just makes Logos and characterdesign or is there more? And is he a Freelancer?

I'm just wondering, I like his Job and I wish I could find such a work too ^^

He's a concept artist who works for a studio that appears to focus on advertising and marketing (it's never really been specified).

Jack, i think i've asked you this before but, if you could pick voice actors for some of your curio characters, who would they be?

Once again we catch a glimpse inside that puzzling conundrum that is Scarlet's mind...

I've been playing Dot Zombie... Are the big green guys invincible? I keep plugging bullets into them but they don't go die.

Yeah. Those ones can't be killed. Just run for it!

Well, so far the Apsara Portfolio seems to be working just fine, so why rock the boat?

That said, if you think using Patreon will be beneficial, more power to you.

'ello there! just a bit curious on what happens when the dead gets a jolt of mother nature's lighting bolt into their system.
