Because of things, the current Monday comic is no longer~
Thanks for reading my comic! Tomorrow’s installment will go up as usual~
If you're feeling left out, Agrias, don't worry. I included a character based on you, as well. It's a fire-spitting dragon that won't let me buy TEN HUGE FROZEN PIZZAS. THEY WERE LIKE A BUCK FIFTY EACH, AGRIAS, AND THEY KEEP FOR, LIKE, FOREVER.
There’s been a slight change in scheduling for the release of Patreon content!
The eBooks of Volumes 1, 2 and 3 will be distributed on Feb 1st.
The first Patreon-supported Whomp! will go live Feb 7th, along with the creation video with the Special Thanks at the end.
The second Patreon-supported Whomp! will go live Feb 14th.
I’m sorry that the comics were moved back a week. I had some realizations with regards to scheduling, and this was the most effective way to handle it~
Important information for $10 and higher patrons: Live drawing sessions will still be Tuesday, Noon EST and Saturday 6PM EST every week of February for the $10 tier supporters. (Google it to get your local time!) Before the session goes live, $10+ patrons will receive a message in Patreon with a unique session link. Expect the streams to last 2-4 hours.
For $40 and higher patrons, I will be sending you a message on Patreon asking you for source material so that I can draw your caricature!
Long story short, if you’re a patron, be sure to check your Patreon messages in February for your rewards and stuff!
If you’re not a patron, it’s not too late to get in on the hot February content! http://www.patreon.com/whomp
The Patreon has reached $600 monthly!
Things that happen on Feb 1st:
Things that happen later:
I don’t even have to mention the $100 tier because we are already in touch, and that is a cool person!
What I would like to do:
I want to think of more ideas that will make the $40 tier more exciting for repeat patrons. Not everyone wants a drawing every month, so I’d like to think of something else I can do. Many people suggest putting patrons in the background of comics, but I feel like modifying the comic at all because of a differing source of income can indirectly change the work itself, and I want it to remain as pure as possible for everyone.
I’m also hesitant to add any more “I will draw things” rewards, mainly because I draw very slowly, and if we reach the higher tiers, I will already be drawing during most waking hours.
If you have any ideas, feel free to send them at my twitter @RonnieFilyaw, but PLEASE don’t feel bad if I reject them. I am super duper picky and annoying, but I absolutely love you for your effort, no matter what! So if there’s anything in particular you’ve ever wanted, maybe let me know!
I know what a lot of you think. Patreon is a place where comic creators go to squeeze money out of fans. This is mostly true BUT
The real fact of the matter is that the more something like Patreon can help a creator, the more time and motivation the artist has to create. It’s difficult when an artist has to do odd-jobs or even work their full time job while still coming home to pour their heart and soul into three to five comics a week.
There is so much I could do with support from Patreon. So much I want to do for you.
Question: “If you do a second comic like I see in your goals, what happens to Whomp!?”
Answer: Whomp! will be still getting its thrice-weekly update AND the two extra Whomp! comics. This is MORE WHOMP and ALSO ANOTHER THING YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO LOOK AT. Also, it means I will be able to actually live within my means while putting my soul into my work. The greatest inspiration is the support to keep working.
I’ll also be recording drawing sessions and drawing live for backers. There is absolutely nothing but good things happening here!
I don’t like to ask for support, but this would help me more than you could possibly imagine. Let’s do this together.
I love you. *smooch*
