hey there everyone i'm shar and today i was going to talk a little bit about finding solutions in places that you've already looked i am kind of doing a little bit of a spoiler today but it's okay because i am just kind of ramping up for a launch that i'm planning this week anyway so any and all kind of stuff i can try to get out there is is
00:32
good right so i have been working for a long time at this art thing uh that's not news uh it's been well how long ago was it since like 2003 when i graduated high school so it's been a while now that that whole entire time through many various means i've been trying to make art my full-time career and
01:02
i recently this past year realized i probably have adhd and the unattentive kind and i have just discovered uh how it kind of is a interacting with what i probably also have which is hashimoto's and all this combines to basically making it so if something doesn't work out i immediately switch
01:34
gears and because i have such low energy from the hashimoto's i want the thing that that i've decided needs to work out i need it to work out quickly and so all of this kind of combines to me just cycling through idea after idea for going on two decades now of trying different things and expecting different results each time i come up with something new to try i want the results to be different
02:06
however the results generally tend to be the same which is not the results i'm looking for broadly speaking so that said uh i am circling back but in a little bit more of a deliberate way to deciding that i am going to try something that i had been putting off for a while like i thought i'm doing my webcomic now i want my webcomic to be the thing that
02:37
takes off webcomic webcomic web comic that is the only thing i care about and i stopped all manner of commissions i took commissions if specifically asked but i didn't like advertise ever for like three years now i've just not really been trying to get commissions i maybe get like five a year but now the big news is i'm doing commissions again and a couple things with this going back into kind of the theme of of what
03:08
i'm talking about today is i've already done this i've done commissions in the past and my brain decided to [Music] consider it unsuccessful because it wasn't as successful as i wanted and i gave up on it and for a long time i thought that was correct and it still might be correct but i'm gonna try again and the point being behind it is my resistance to doing commissions
03:39
was largely based around not wanting anything to distract me from my comic and i feel like i've been maintaining updates to my comic more or less bi-weekly every other week in other words for going on two years now so i feel like that's like a solid enough base to then start adding extra stuff onto and the way i worked it out both in my brain and externally on paper
04:08
is that i thought if i am able to make a full-time living off of just commissions then why not right like then then i'm living the dream and the nice thing about the way i'm doing it is i'm doing them through patreon largely just digital one character only discounted rate from my usual stuff which is based on getting like the the customer getting a product at the end of the day so digital only
04:40
just for patrons and the reason why i decided to move forward in this direction was i've seen other creators who do largely commission based stuff and the nice thing about that as opposed to me seeking out commissions is people would come to me and then ask if i wanted to do something and then i can just say yes or no and it makes it a lot easier for me compared to what i would do before is i
05:13
would i would try to do a themed commission and it never went over well i'd be like oh it's holiday themed commission time and everybody was just like eh like they didn't it just never caught on so that said i just made three new tiers on my patreon and they are at a higher rate than my other three tiers and i don't the thing is i don't expect people to stay from month to month if they want to that would be super
05:44
awesome but i kind of expect a rotation of people from month to month however if i were able to get on a monthly basis it's effectively 25 spots open i've limited all the tiers and i've made it so if all 25 spots get taken then i could make my entire living off of art only in doing commissions and i made it so commissions that take a lot of
06:15
investment are a small much smaller number than the like shorter sketches kind of that i'm offering as well so i debated with myself as to whether i have also like the energy to be able to do this and i realized i don't draw enough and the problem with this mindset i've had for going on 20 years now of art is my business is that it's really hard for me to just draw for fun i generally don't
06:45
i draw for a reason i draw for a purpose i don't can't maintain a sketchbook sketching just for the sake of sketching isn't super fun for me because it's like well how am i using this i'm not going to get into whether that's a healthy mindset or not it's probably not i know this however i can't just ignore the fact that it doesn't give me a dopamine hit to work on stuff when i'm not gonna reap any reward from it i might get like like the likes on instagram aren't
07:17
enough it's it's not going to do enough for me to seek joy and and doing the thing if money were no object maybe things would be different but it absolutely is an object and it's something that i have been wanting more and more especially the closer to 40 i get i'm 36 now and the closer i get the more i'm like i just i just want to make a living doing art
07:48
full time if that means drawing 25 different things every single month for people fine let's do it i am ready i i want this very much so in my eyes this is worth it i hope it takes off i hope people are interested and are wanting such thing i'm kind of sort of banking on the on the hope that i haven't done commissions i haven't been doing commissions a whole lot so maybe some people who i'll be sending
08:19
out a newsletter and everything who communicated with in the past or talked to in the past might want to take in the commission's thing again i do see some potentials for some interesting stuff to have happen because i am dealing with these higher numbers and it's on a month-to-month basis it's going to be more to like keep up with and make sure everybody's good each month it's not really an issue but people tend to back me and then they don't i don't think they
08:49
look at the patreon very often i think it's just like i like you i want to support what you do here do with what with what you will but like for these higher tiers it can't be like that like it has to be interactive or like a very voluntary i'm opting out i don't want to have a commission this month i just want to support you which is totally fine but i don't want to get into a situation where someone hasn't realized that they were
09:21
being charged a certain amount over and over each month and they're like oh uh can i actually get like six months online can actually get this mega super huge commission which would take like maybe a whole month just to do one i'm trying to keep it so these are able for me to be able to do in a manner that isn't too strenuous but also still quality so that's my plan that is what i'm going to be launching this whole entire week uh the big the big kind of launch date
09:50
i'm going for is the beginning of the month obviously because patreon charges at the beginning of the month and i don't want the very end of this month to get flooded absolutely flooded with commissions i'm not too worried about it posting this on this channel given the viewership is still pretty small so unless it absolutely blows up i still at least have the different quantities so it could only go so far right like i'll just be
10:20
a bit behind if if it were absolutely to take off but that's never happened before so i'm not super i'm not super worried about that but i am hoping that this does take off in these efforts that i'm making to advertise it something that's been very difficult for me to advertise with the webcomic is i'm dealing with a two fort problem i'm both having to educate and sell at the same time and that's really difficult to do that's like a and for entertainment not educate for
10:52
education's sake because if you're trying to educate but you're also trying to sell a class like that works in tandem but it's really hard for someone to just like never seen something before and then a second later be like okay give me money for it like that's that's kind of what i'm facing on patreon until i get a wider viewership from for the comic so until then i feel like commissions are really going to be the thing that gets me independent as an artist
11:22
and drawing more anyway i am hoping i can get a new drawing device in this next month and if i am then it's it's going to be a super game changer because i won't be strapped to the desk i could actually relax on the bed or go outside if i were to do such a thing and go sketching and that could be really nice as well so i am fingers crossed hoping super super a lot that this takes off and ends up being the thing that
11:54
i've tried in the past but in a more kind of logical planned way hoping that maybe this could be the thing that ends up helping me to be independent 100 that is the absolute dream it's been a dream of mine for a super super long time and i'm just like i'm just like come on maybe this is it maybe i'll be posting again in a month and i'll just be like well that was a bust i'm gonna try to give it more than a month to make sure that like it's a good idea or not but i am
12:26
going to be talking about it more i will try to update y'all and let you know how it's going and whether or not i still continue to think this is a good idea or not or if it's just another adhd quirk where i am just like oh i'm gonna try this now ooh shiny we'll see if you did listen through the all of this uh let me know what do you try to if you are interested in being a full-time artist what are the things you've tried to make that happen for you and be able to sustain off of just your artwork is
12:57
it through commissions did you get a webcomic that was so successful that you could just that you could just monetize it because if you do can we talk uh just yeah i'm really interested in hearing a back and forth in a like exchange about this because i'm i'm super curious i've been researching it forever but i'd love to hear and if you want to check out my webcomic you can always go to thegoldentroop.com and i am at the golden troop
13:26
absolutely everywhere so if you don't want to check it out on the main website you can go to webtoons tapas you can go to instagram you can go even to twitter though i don't post a lot on that account there but there is one there so yeah i appreciate you listening if you want to check out the commission tier maybe maybe our tears uh that's three of them uh then you can check that out as well over at patreon.comread
