Diskordia on Patreon by Rivenis

That's right. I've decided to set up a Patreon page to support the creation of my surreal fantasy comic series Diskordia. I was hesitant at first, its true. But I realised its a great way to work with and be directly accountable to fans and adherents of the series. Please check out the page and consider becoming a patron: www.patreon.com/diskordiacomic

Don't know about patreon? Here's a helpful link: www.patreon.com/about

Want to find out more about Diskordia? Check out the official website and download the first 5 issues for free. That's right for FREE. I like people to know what they're getting into. Don't say I didn't warn you :D

Marbles by Rivenis

Not much to say. It was a fun experiment and an attempt at going back to a more detailed and rendered style. Subject matter is related to my indie comic series Diskordia. This is also my first piece created with the backing of my Patreon supporters. If you're interested in seeing the process or downloading the hi-res version then consider joining me on patreon. Also consider checking out the comic. It has 12 issues out and going strong.

I recently started my own Patreon page. I was really reluctant for a long time because I've always had trouble getting people to notice my work and my fanbase is small. It seemed like futility.
     What made me change my mind was that I started looking at the whole thing differently. Instead of seeing Patreon as an immediate way to score income I saw it as something I would build up over time. Its not like there's a penalty for having a patreon page with 0 contributors. You can take as long as you want to attract pledgers and The page itself gives you a new angle to promote yourself.
   Alot of the comments on the threads here make it sound like starting the page is fruitless if you don't have fans, but the patreon page itself is a good way to attract fans and lets people know that you're serious about your art. Its also a great motivator to improve and update with content. Its a great feeling to get a new pledge.
    Anyway that's my two cents. There's no risk to starting a  page if you're really serious about sticking with it for the long haul and building up that fanbase brick by brick. See Patreon as an investment in the future and a marketing tool rather than a quick way to make some passive income.

I'd really like to know what you guys think. So comment away, its a forum dammit.
