I NEED YOUR OPINIONS! Please read and reply if you have time!
So I’m devising a strategy for doing educational videos. Not just process, but actual educational ones that address the more underlying foundational skills required for illustration and concept\vis-dev. Right now I’m just playing with the Camtasia studio trial, and this was made from a really old Livestream, thus the absolutely atrocious resolution, for which I apologize profusely.
SO HERE’S THE QUESTION OF THE DAY!
If I were to start a Patreon... uh, “campaign”, would you subscribe? This is VERY loose thinking, but I want to gauge public opinion before pouring energy into this.
(amounts are per video because these may not follow a strict schedule :x)
FREE- Most of the videos will be free and public, because I don’t want to hide this info behind a paywall!
$1 Tier- The “thank you” level. This is just for people who feel what I do is important enough to them to give something :)
$3 Tier- LiveCrit level. You will send me a sketch or painting that I will do a public critique video on. These may be short, but I don’t plan on “charging” the Patrons for them. Your $5 will only go towards the mainstream videos.
$5 Tier- LiveCrit+PSD level. LiveCrit, and you will get medium-res(~2k) PSD’s from any videos that have drawings or paintings.
Above this, I am trying to figure out how to use Patreon to do actual mentorships over Google Hangout or Skype. It’s something I’ve wanted to do but haven’t found a good platform yet. Let me know if you’d be interested in the mentorship thing.
The money will mean I can spend more time on these videos, and less time doing freelance to pay off student loans :) I can also spend the money to do special features, bringing in pro artists to talk about certain subjects and pay them for their time.
Again, these won’t be vague “speedpaint” videos, they will be in-depth foundation videos talking about both theory, and demonstrating application in the field. The main things I want to cover are
-Illustration and Design Foundations
-Criticism, Philosophy, and Theory (Including topics on motivation, inspiration, goals, social justice, learning- the more mental side of the coin.)
So… Would you pay? If not, what could convince you? (feel free to answer via replies, or asks, or reblogs :>)
Super interested! I can’t get enough art talk, and I love your work, and I’m in a position now to be offer some monetary support.
