Hey everyone, Mako here. Just wanted to update people on a few things and also asking for people's opinions on something I've been thinking about for a bit.
I am currently working on a request that has been in the works for a while now and hopefully that will be out soon. Not to mention I still have some gift art ideas I've been meaning to do. But, as many of you may have seen, growth drives seem to be popular recently, and I'll be honest here, I've been wanting to try one myself. I'm currently a semi-broke college student who has a minimum wage job, so really I'm just looking at options here. As for what characters will be involved (ie. an OC, or canon characters) or even if I do it are still up in the air. That's why I want your guys opinion. If people don't want a growth drive, I won't do it. If they do, then prepare for a growth drive in the near future.
Now, growth drive aside, the next question would be Patreon. It is also a popular means to support creators and I feel it has many benefits. I especially enjoy that it has a per each creation option instead of monthly basis, which I feel is fair and better suited for me. I'll be looking into Patreon soon, but some with the growth drive, if you guys don't want me to use Patreon, I will accept your wishes.
Even if Patreon and the growth drive are shot down, commissions will eventually be open, that I am not leaving up for a vote or debate. I've done commissions before and they're a nice way to get some revenue for doing what you like.
Other news, I'm happy to say that expect some OCs from me soon. I've had character ideas in mind for a while and hopefully I can finally draw and post them online. In fact, a comic is underway right introducing one in particular. Comics are new to me but I'm willing to give it a shot.
Besides all that, expect more art and if I have may way, art trades and collaborations soon. I'll be reaching out to a few artists very shortly.
Thank you everyone for all the support, I will see you all very soon.
(Also go watch The Martian, it's really fucking good)
