I'll be honest my life has been a trainwreck for a good while now and it isn't looking toward getting any better.
I've been wondering about patreon, if that's an option anyone is interested in here? I don't know if anyone would find my art interesting enough to want to fund me but I could glady share some of my many un-published sketches and works if so.
Would anyone who actually uses it might be able to also help me understand some things about it?
-Is it possible to set up multiple campaigns? So I can set up different campaigns to choose from, so no one has to be bombarded by art types they don't want to see! (like making two separate themed ones and one for everything?)
-I don't know how it exactly works. Is it a monthly thing? Weekly? Do I choose? I've seen some comic artists do per-image but that definitely doesn't work for sharing sketches and unpublished images!
-I think there are other fun things you can do with patreons right? like raffles and special commission things for donators... tell me more about it?
Just please tell me more about patreon! I'd like to know how other artists and how my watchers feel about it! PHOTOS?
As a select few of you may know, I actually really enjoy photography. I've been wondering if any of you all would like me to share my photography with you on this account! Or would it be better for me to make a separate account for such a thing?
Also if anyone has any advice on photography watermarking, please share. I don't want to sound pompous but I've got some photos I could see getting stolen in a fartbeat. I don't want to ruin the images though by marking all over them, but still. SHOUTOUTS
Some of my good friends are are in need as well! It just seems like a difficult time for us all.

Commissions are go!JULY 9TH UPDATE...
Hello guys! Your patronage was critical in getting me through July, and I've almost made my living expenses. Because of this, I'm punching the "threat level" back to the ground floor. We're in the clear! Thank you all for your help and support-- you are the best, and I am forever grateful. <3
THIRD QUARTER SPECIAL:
♦ All buyers will be put into a raffle, with 3 winners receiving an inked sketch request (ends Sep1)
♦ Previous buyers get 5% off
Aaaaand commissions are GO! As many of you now know, recent budget cuts have put me and my husband out of work (he, an Active Duty soldier recently bumped to reservist; and I, a DA civilian). We're now treading water as we wait to hear back about work, so I'm taking on commissions to help make ends meet.
Ranging from a simple sketch to a rough drawing, these bite-sized pieces are done within a half-hour time limit. Smaller and more manageable, and I'll do my best!

Most of their work is offsite but if it lets you comment on the stash that works, or send them a note. Or just ask me and I'll be glad to shoot them a message.
They also have an iron-artist themed commission drive going, so if you're interested be sure to ask!
My fellow admin at the conan club is offering commissions as well! They have a really cute style for the DC fandom
I know I've got DC fans up in here so check them out!
Commissions...Okay guys, I never liked the idea of commissions but I find myself in a terrible position right now.
I have had a minimum wage job 1-2 days a week for the last three, four? too many years while I have lived with my grandmother and taken care of her at home, as she hasn't been able to walk or take care of herself. She is currently 103 years old and I've lived with her practically all my life.
I now find myself in the horrible position of being told she only has a month to live and that we will be stopping her medicine come tomorrow.
That being the case, I have absolutely no money to help bury her when the time comes. She has a funeral plot, but that's all.
It's going to be very expensive and I don't know what else to do besides try and earn some money on here.
I write too, on fanfiction, but drawing something is easier for me unless it's like, Magic Kaito/Detective Conan, which I can typically write out a one shot/two shot of in 8 or so hours. I can probably do a few others but it would
