Just a suggestion for those that can't afford to donate on patreon, could you maybe upload the erotic pages to a place like tumblr or Y! gallery and link to them?
Please don't take this as a complaint, but it really sucks to get so invested in a story and then not being able to read the juicy bits because of SJ guidelines. Or maybe uploading edited versions of pages where you cover up the naughty bits of both men and then using the above mentioned for the unedited pages?
Just hoping for the best...
There are mature content comics on here that have very graphic material. Is this a new SJ guideline or is it a personal choice? I think if post the pages as mature content they should be ok.
@LPKid: No, it's all my choice to upload explicit pages on patreon. I'll post here until page 67 as a "transition" to the NSFW and after that the NSFW-end of the episode I'll update on Patreon: 10 pages.
So that's it then for me ... I can't afford to support more than one artist via Patreon, and that place is already taken up by someone who delivers well-done comic pages four days a week. They may not be as artistically elaborated as yours, but on the other hand the stories are quite delightful and entertaining, and it doesn't take weeks for something significant to happen.
Maybe you should rather try to find a site where you get the money via the advertisements instead of from the readers, and only paying readers are ad-free? I am sure such sites exist. If you try to press readers into Patreon by omitting pages, I am afraid you will rather hurt the cause, because less and less people will know you, and that means the basis for possible Patreon readers will shrink.
Just a thought. Whatever path you decide on, I wish you luck.
First of all it is quite rude to compare two different artist with two different lifestyles to one another you have no idea what they are going through in their life how much time they have on handy to work on their work etc.
You should also never compare two different artstyles and stories to one another!
Secondly you should always respect an artist's choices there are enough other web comics which don't post their nsfw stuff publically and just make it available for patrons, it's quite normal and understandable since it's another way of getting more patrons, which by all means is their fundamental right
you in fact as a reader have no right to judge upon the decisions an artist or author makes with what they feel comfortable enough to share publically
Anyway now to this story my darling baby of an artist with a georgous artstyle and a quite intriguing story
Don't listen to people like this guest, do your thing, if you don't feel comfortable posting the nsfw publically that's alright, if you just do it so you get some more patrons that's alright too since you work your ass off to create this piece and have all the right on the world to get something in return!
However I must apologize that I cannot be your patron as for yet since I am still a student and don't work so far.
As a suggestion, you could maybe sell the nsfw, like offer it for a certain fee for people who are not able to be your patron monthly
Anyway much love and thanks for sharing this amazing work of art, don't feel bad for your updating speed, it's okay :)
Oh man this is sad. I LOVE your story so much and it was interesting to see a character that is from greece (i am greek too!) but as luck would have it, i have no money to help you and support your story I wish I did!! D:
I know I will miss some interesting parts ;) but I will keep reading your story because I wanna see where the characters will go! :)
I also someone who can't afforded to support on Patreon. In the future will there be a print version of this comic for sale. I also will be still check out your comic your art is beautiful.
I really don't mind that you're offering the nsfw pages for money. It's just the same as people offering explicit side comics, or wallpapers, or whatever, for set amounts of money n all that.
I come to Smackjeeves to read comics in my spare time. And yes, I am happy to be able to read them for free.
I am happier to learn that the artists can make money from ads, or indeed from people that do have the money to donate, or buy extras etc.
I would NEVER hold it against any author, of any varient, for doing as you do here.
@DotE (Guest) Sod off, with that attitude you won't be missed.
Seriously, the story is still going to be posted on smackjeeves. You're just missing the smut - which frankly is not the soul purpose that all of us are here for.
ah another person from the broke club. I love your work so i'll continue to read. If hopefully my situation improves in the next month or so, i would be able to support this work. Anyway , looking forward to more updates.
Dudes, You all need to relax, Comic/manga authors need to make money somehow! and patron is a great way to do so, Yes I am sad that the OwO parts are not available to me at the time, but as a fellow author who understands the struggles of guidelines. this is the best option to avoid breaking any set rules, and to make a bit of money to support the production of the comic/manga! Keep doing what you do!
