Hi there~

Most of you probably don't know or care (and that's perfectly okay!) that I used to stream a lot of video games.

When I started drawing bonus comics and Otaku Dad, I lost a lot of the free time I used to stream.

A happy alternative, of course, was streaming for just a couple-few hours whenever I felt like it.

Unfortunately, streaming has turned into a frustrating experience, and I have no idea why.

It's no one's fault but my own. My chat is almost entirely friendly and civil, but I get upset and tired easily when playing games. I frequently look at the clock to see how many hours I've been streaming and if I can stop playing yet.

The most egregious sin I commit is getting snippy with my chatters, and I'm just not that guy. I want to be friendly and nice all of the time, but for some reason, that ability becomes lost to me after only short time after going live.

I don't really know why it happens, but I don't want anyone to remember me as angry mean fellow playing the video games. I've tried hard to enjoy streaming again, and for some reason I can't make it work.

I want to thank everyone who made streaming possible. When I started, a donation drive helped me buy a capture unit so that I was able to properly stream Silent Hill 2 and some other console games. These were extremely fun experiences, and I'm blessed to have been able to share them with people.

Thank you for making it a greatly enjoyable time for me. Maybe someday I'll find joy in it again, but until then, I'm not going to force it.

I hope you have a wonderful day.

- Ronnie

P.S. This does not affect Patreon reward drawing streams, which I still find to be a fun way to draw while interacting with people.

But I did it

It's a new comic thing I'm doing. I hope you like it~

The style may scare a lot of people away, but I hope you stick with me on this adventure

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:

  • Release an extra comic that will appear on the Patreon page. I will link it from this blog post and my twitter. (Along with the PSD files you can download and do whatever you want with!)

  • Release a video of the process of making the first comic while walking you through the process. (Also, special thanks to everyone on the $5 tier and above on the video!)

  • All $5 patrons will get the eBooks of all three currently existing Whomp! volumes. Suitable for reading comics on mobile without website bloat~

  • Contact patrons for their photos or other source material for the caricatures!




Things that happen later:

  • Release an extra comic on Feb 7th in the same place with the same bonuses as the first one!

  • Start giving people who were $40 patrons their caricatures!

  • Hold two drawing streams a week where patrons of the $10 tier can join and chat! (I will set up a schedule some time this month)




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!
