I write a comic called The Bright Side. It is about a girl and her friend Death.
Sometimes I do other stuff too.


And my website:
So a thing I've seen a bunch of webcomics start doing is patreon campaigns, which - well so far just looks like another thing that I might sign up to in the hopes that I might actually make some money, and then it'll just sit there not making me any money.

Cos, you know, it actually depends on people committing and being like 'YES! i will give you a small quantity of money every time you put up a page or whatever!'

and so far i have a) not that big a readership and b) mostly poor young people like myself as my readers, who are not super keen to throw money at things. as far as i can tell. honestly if i had just one reader who was incredibly loaded and/or incredibly charitable it would be rad. but i... don't think i do. so idk if i should attempt to set a patreon up or not.

OR another thing i might do is make some minicomics which connect to stuff (like, episodes from Dee's past that he doesn't talk about, or something) which you only get to read if you buy them.

idk. that's the kind of thing that pisses me off as a reader, but only because, as previously mentioned, i am a young person with not a heck of a lot of money. also i read a lot of webcomics and ALAS i can't support them ALL without destituting myself. (i assume everybody is in the same boat)

do any of you know about patreon, or have any other advice, or just... have thoughts??

go click it, it's the daisy which is also my icon here on dA
or you could buy ebooks off my gumroad, or whatever i happen to have on society6 (seriously need to update that stuff; i have IDEAS, i just haven't done them yet)

DESPERATELY TRYING TO BE A SELLOUT HERE (not actually, but i keep having to think about MY FUTURE and JOBS and so much of it revolves around MONEY... like those people who tell you 'do what you love and you will MAGICALLY be able to live just fine?' LIES) (and i'm a rich white kid, i'm not actually in trouble at this moment in time) (unless my main issue is i'm not good enough and if i actually did a better job at stuff people would be throwing millions at my door, but i see a lot of shitty stuff that people seem to get money from and i'd like to think i'm at least a LITTLE bit better than some of those things)

AHHH. AHHH. I need to flail about today's comic and it's not hear yet. And I'll be gone all tomorrow. Ahhh. I don't even know what I'm going to say I just... don't yell at Dee... how the frik could he be visible don't you know everyone would flip the heck out and Dee would be SO UNCOMFORTABLE and Em don't yell at him I know you'd LIKE the world to operate such that you can have what you want but YOU CAN'T ok so don't take it out on Dee!

but for the sake of argument, he has never ever given a reason for why she should keep him secret, he just says 'do it' and she does coz she figures it's important. but seriously, why? nearly every urban fantasy story is all 'we gotta keep it secret for REASONS' but unless the reasons are given it's just frustrating. i think it would be frustrating to be in em's position, and it's not unreasonable to ask for at least an explanation.

but then even if dee doesn't have a good reason (definition questionable, i guess) it can still be a big deal so... :shrug:
KyonaraRisingStar Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014
Hmm that's actually a good point I hadn't thought of. I, like Em, just sort of assumed it was an important reason. I'm now really interested on if Dee even knows the reason... could be an instinct thing...

On the flip side, I'm not sure Em strolling down the street next to a tall skinny pale dude in black robes with shadowed eyes is going to make her look any LESS crazy than talking to no-one, but it might scare away potential bullies at least.

Haha, well she's really not that opposed to looking unusual :XD: she'd be all 'yeah come at me NOW losers'
