Hi again. Sorry about the slight gap in posts, but I have had a lot to do, and the weather has not been cooperative, which as most all of you probably know by now, that tends to give me horrific headaches. I don’;t have any new visual content for you guys right now, as I have just been to busy/stressed to make anything this month. Some of you may also have noticed that I didn’t bother with my usual black friday gumroad sale this month… and that is mostly just due to me still being totally out of it all month (I honestly forgot until late evening on black friday, and decided it was effectively too late by that point); but it also doesn’t help when I think back and remember that nobody really bothered getting anything most of the time anyway. I may do a gumroad sale for Xmas in December, not sure yet… but there is a whole lot about all of this that I am not sure of at the moment.
Quick slightly positive note, there were at least some votes in the polls this month, so thanks for that – but more is always good, so do please vote in the polls on the right if you have not already done so. Not sure if I will leave one up again, or do totally new ones next month… we will see what happens in a few days.
I will see what I can do next month – I hope to have a couple new side renders for Xmas… but we will see what happens. I don’t want to make any promises, as I have been trying to find the time/energy to finish LITC 6 for months and months now… and the past few months in particular have just been intensely draining on me for various reasons, despite me not making mini-sets anymore; life has just not been cooperative, and I constantly worry about so many things… it is just a mess. Additional side note – deviantart seems to have either shit the bed entirely or possibly malfunctioned, since effectively my entire DA page (including my favorites from other artists) is currently blanket labeled “Mature Content” when not logged in – when most of it actually is not…? Really unsure wtf is going on there – as there has always been a flag when you submit any image to DA that marks it as such, (which seemed fair enough) but now they seem to have put in some trash algorithm or some such that apparently auto-flagged damn near everything for some retarded reason. Not that I thought much of DA anymore after the eclipse fiasco years back, (much like DAZ, DA was a nice site that got bought by malicious company and turned to the dark side) but this is just a new and intensely sad low for them… I hope it actually is a mistake, or they likely just sank their own battleship.
In other, also sad news, I have had to gut my old Patreon page as previously mentioned, and try to make it SFW – in order to continue using Patreon since I refuse to risk full identity theft for no valid reason. I am not even positive on the status of it just yet… since I cannot post anything NSFW anymore, and therefore cannot give out any real rewards per se, it is just a tip jar at the moment. (I wanted to make it a pay whatever you want tier, but that apparently isn’t an option.) I even removed the old commission deal tiers, since nobody ever bothered with them anyway. (I may bring them back if things turn up, not sure.) I may make additional tip tiers with slightly higher denominations, just to allow for more support if desired… not entirely sure yet – I am still trying to figure out my plan/options.
There has been a ton of stuff to think over with this, and most all of it is intensely depressing. (Still not sure what will even happen to my other content right now…) I will likely edit that page further next month, with different cost tiers of tips or something, but we will see what happens – a lot of this also depends on the Patreon content mods, and if they require me to wipe more stuff to declare my page SFW or not… but hopefully what I have already done is enough. (And hopefully it works at all… I was told it would, but that doesn’t always work out.)
Anyway, if you want to help support/motivate me in making more content, you can check out my redone Patreon page here (as I said, more changes likely coming next month): https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
Any interest, comments, follows, likes, votes, or support really does help. It is hard to keep making new stuff when nobody seems to care. Following me on DA/slushe/pixiv/twitter/whatever doesn’t cost anything – and that all does help spread the word about my work… so please consider doing some of that if you haven’t already.
