Even though things have been tough, I have to soon look towards recouping some costs on a new laptop I am prepping to get me around some of my new limitations. I won’t have the ability to do anything advanced, but a single two person loop with a simple background that I can possibly bust out quickly would be appreciated. I can’t do anything with more then 1-2 characters right now so don’t even ask, I wish I could but I just can’t.
Will start opening up the slots next week, so if you are interested just submit using the form here, or e-mail me. This will also be a good test of how well this laptop will do the job I need it to do.
As many knew, some changes in my life have been looming on the horizon. Changes that I have no control over, and that have been making me depressed. It’s about time you knew, those changes have happened, and yet even more come in the weeks ahead that will change it further.
What does this mean for my smut? I don’t know.
When it happened, I had prayed for the best, but as you can tell over the last week, I had nothing even remotely ready to post. It was the first week in ages I have had no update at all I could give you, because the amount of time I can animate has been cut by a good eighty-five percent. Another five or ten percent will be lost in the next two weeks.
I had hoped my Patreon would get me to the slave milestone, and then I could attempt to supplement that with commissions and just do this full time, but sadly I have stagnated there. I don’t really blame people though. I need to do a better job adding value to it, but I always struggle on how to approach it without losing my ability to make my own works. I guess that does not matter all that much at this point.
As of now I just plan, and plot, and try whatever I can to figure out a solution, but with each day passes stuck in this new schedule the more frustrated and helpless I feel. Without a way to supplement my income, I either have to give up other things I love as a sacrifice to animate, drastically slow down my releases to maybe once a month, or retire from smut entirely. None of those options sound all that wonderful to me, but right now the slower release schedule is the easiest one I think I can stomach.
In the case I do have to retire completely, I tried to bust out tutorials to help others, so that at least some legacy would live on beyond me. I hope at least those helped some people. Yes, this all means I also have to postponed a bunch of projects indefinitely. Right now my list is clear while I figure out what projects I might be able to keep on it.
No matter what happens I always appreciate the amount of support and good will I have gotten from my fans, fellow animators, and other online friends. You made my many years of posting some of the best years of my life. I just wish I could have kept giving more. I feel so stuck right now.
Anyways… If you had a choice of one thing I do that you would see me continue, what would it be? Fel Friday? Webcomic? Unity? It will really help me figure out where I might be going in the future.
