WHY ARE THESE CHANGES COMING?
I want to continue to create and share my work with people, and changes like this should be more sustainable for me. I may continue to change things next year, too, and am always open to feedback. These changes will all go into effect January 1st, 2021.
Let's see how it goes!
WHAT WILL CHANGE
Every supporter will now be that month's draw, and draws take place the first day of the following month. (For example, those who donate in January will be entered in January's draw, which would take place February 1st.) Donate in one month and you'll be entered into a draw with all other supporters that donated. And should you be the only supporter that month, then.. the winner is clear! ?
Winners will be able to request a portrait sketch from me, of a character of their choosing!*
Sketches will be delivered later that same month, and will have a sketchy quality to them as it part of their charm. Also note that a person can win multiple months consecutively, though I may change this rule when there are more supporters to ensure more people have a chance to win.
Previously, two rewards would go up every month for all supporters in the Supporter Downloads album on Ko-fi. Rewards would consist of a background image (for a phone for desktop) and a lineart sketch for colouring. There didn't seem to be high interest in either of these. I do want to continue providing rewards, though perhaps in a more limited fashion going forward.
Rewards may not necessarily be monthly in 2021, though I will be updated available downloads as I can. Is there something you want to see specifically? I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
WHAT IS STAYING THE SAME
The cost of a ko-fi on my page, $3 USD, is staying the same! I have no plans to change this number.
