Well, my new job starts tomorrow. The first week or so is going to be a bit hectic, so until I get things all settled, I'm going to be shutting off my Patreon page for a while. Not outright deleting it, just turning off its "Content Creator" status so my patrons don't have to worry about paying for nothing.
To be honest, I've been needing to step back and take a long look at my Patreon page for a long while. It's not nearly as successful as I had hoped it would have become at this point, and not just because I haven't had more than two patrons since I started. I started this Patreon in the hopes that the promise of a regular cash flow would motivate me to become more productive with making art, but sadly I've learned the hard way that it's going to take more than that to alleviate a lifetime's worth of procrastination and laziness. Motivation is fleeting; self-discipline is what I truly need. I also need to advertise myself better; I clearly didn't try hard enough before. At the very least I need to stop looking at Reddit and Imgur so damn much. I've wasted so much valuable art time on those stupid sites and I hate myself for it.
On a lighter note, I will be posting all the Patreon-exclusive art I've made thus far right here on deviantART, for free! Hope you enjoy that.
