Ok, so several people have suggested that I look into Patreon, and, based on their advice and the web surfing I did today, I think I have a basic grasp of the concept now, and I wanted to run it by you all to get your opinions.

So, I'm thinking that I would set up a Patreon page where I would have you all pledge whatever you felt comfortable pledging to pay for the sort of thing that I usually post here on Deviant Art. So, for every episode of Delve (about 4 per month) and every full-color pinup I post here, I would ask for a paid donation from my patrons. I would still post those things here for everyone to see, but anyone who wanted to could help support my work (and encourage me to actually do more of it) by being a patron.

In addition, for those of you who actually are patrons, you would have access to the super-secret Patron-Only news feed or whatever Patreon does, where I would post a monthly link to a Drop Box drive where I could put all my sketches and stuff that would be considered too naughty for DA (or the Patreon system itself). I think as long as I tag my work as NSFW and keep the Patreon page Private (as far as I understand it, that just means that normal people couldn't browse through the Patreon site and accidentally have their retinas seared out by images of naked elf breasts and slimy tentacles) I should be able to post pretty much anything that I can post to DA through Patreon as well for the purpose of "Paid" updates.

Now this would solve the problem that I'm having with getting my sketchbooks out to you guys without having to route my PDF downloads through New Zealand because no other country will touch my filthy wares or producing expensive Print On Demand books that only the most diehard fans will actually buy.

The one drawback I saw so far is that, since my work is adult in nature, you wouldn't be able to use PayPal, so you'd have to use a credit card or something to pledge.

Now this is all assuming that I can overcome my Luddite Field for long enough to actually get this all working, so no promises yet, but what do you think of the idea?

Zarathul
Andrew Hunter
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Zarathul is the deranged alter ego of a quiet, unassuming man named Andrew Hunter who fractured his psyche in a forbidden attempt to channel the spirits of H.P. Lovecraft and C.S. Lewis. The resultant explosion tore apart the fabric of space and time, summoning into this world the rat-infested hulk of the H.M.S. Lewcroft, which had gone missing off the coast of Bermuda in April of 1952, as well as the mad ghost of an 18th Century privateer calling himself Zarathul the Undying. Upon his return to this world, Zarathul soon evicted the rats and sold the Lewcroft as scrap iron. Unfortunately, he lost most of the profit in some rather unsound investment schemes in the early 90's, and he now resides with Mister Hunter and earns a meager living by creating art and literature of a questionable nature while pursuing his hobbies of treasure appreciation and scowling.

The rats fared much better, having invested their share of the scrap metal proceeds in tech stocks, and they are now living comfortably in Bermuda and curating a popular design blog.

And vore enthusiasts don't understand other people's fascination with, say, foot sex.. or fatties.

I don't really understand any of those fetishes. They're just very strange to me. I understand vore a bit more than why anyone would be attracted to feet, or ungodly obese folk.

Maybe I missed it or something, but didn't we have to vote for the survival of a busload of characters a while ago?
