My Failure With Patreon

posted by Joel Bisaillon on 10th Sep 2015, 8:53 PM

This is an interesting set back. It would seem I hadn’t fully set up Patreon correctly. I have had 500 people take a gander at Eirgsmoth on launch day and not one Patron. Not that I thought I was due any donations but it was shown to friends and family so I thought perhaps a few might donate. Well I hadn’t filled out my W-b(something or other) form. if any one attempted to donate and failed because I'm incompetent please if you are so inclined try again. If my stupidity has turned you off I understand.

However I am quite impressed with the views so far. Please if you notice anything wrong send me a message so I can sort it out. Now I’m not sure if everyone is aware but you are able to vote once per day on the Top Webcomic list if you are so inclined. It would help me greatly to gather more viewers if my Webcomic is higher on the list and I know that this will never pay me an honest working wage but it helps support something you like.

Its coming up fast

It’s been quite a bit of a scramble. I’ve set myself an official release date of September 1st and I want to have 10 pages done with 5 of them stored for back up. I have a cast of characters page and an acknowledgements page to round out the comic. I’ve also just added my keyword list to HTML. I’ve hooked up Patreon, Top web comics and my Deviant art page.  So where to with this now?

As some of you might have noticed I tend to hide some culture references I enjoy in the comic and if people post on the comic what I have acknowledged, I’ll start a little winners page on the site.

Also should you see a miss-spelling please school me on what it is.

Well I’m about to embark on a journey that’s been on my mind for years. Stories and concepts have been floating around for some time in my head. It’s finally time to put pen to paper as they say as my time off comes to a quick end.

I’ve been teaching myself quite a few new skills over the months and think I have what I need to know to get this off the ground. Most of my work is created in Poser and prettied up in Photoshop then a dose of manga studio for good measure. I’ve noticed that the font is too small to read so the story will need to be spread out a bit more. I’m being hosted on comic fury for the moment but I’ll see how long that lasts and how well it treats me.

Next I need to see about promotion of Eirgsmoth on many of the Web comic supportive sites like top web comics, comic basement and mac’s comic list. I’ve built a few banners but need to clean them up a bit. I know that Patreon is a good service for funding and I’m in the middle of writing up a goal/rewards write up for the world but first I have to get some work under my belt. Say 10 pages or so. Eirgsmoth needs a Facebook page, a twitter account and its own personal email address.

About page one “What’s Due”. The introductory page opens on a proud but doomed gambler who won the wrong trophy. A pair of cousins named Prunesquallor follow the victim to collect. That’s an homage to Gormengahast and all of you who don’t know of it please try to read it or find a copy to watch it. Kantzy is the killer as Wormald directs with his attempt at  gentlemanly conduct. He fancies himself a slight poet with a psychopathic nature. Murderers none the less. Welcome to Eirgsmoth.
