As some of you may remember from this post, I decided to get rid of the $5 tier on Patreon, after losing all my pledges for it in under a week. The $5 tier was full of exclusive art and comics I never intended to post anywhere else. But since that tier is now dead, I’ve been browsing through all my exclusives to get a better sense of what I should do with them.
Most, as I expected, are pieces I don’t want to share again, so they’ll remain where they are. (Although I technically don’t have a $5 tier anymore, people can still easily up their pledge to $5, if they feel inclined, and download all those old exclusives that way.) There are a few I plan to make public, though…
The first is “Nicholas Learns to Cook,” which I’ve already posted here and here. This Echo Effect comic wasn’t intended to be a Patreon Exclusive originally, since I created it before I even had a Patreon. I had even shared a dialogue-free preview of it years ago, so it felt only right to make this public.
Two others I’m considering are “No Cats Allowed” and “Ethan’s Probably Fine.” (Previews for both can be seen here and here.) “No Cats Allowed” was only posted on Patreon this past June, so it didn’t have much of a chance to be an exclusive before I took away the $5 tier. And since it had taken me half a year to make, it’d be disheartening to let all that hard work be for nothing. “Ethan’s Probably Fine” is also fairly recent, and feels like a good piece to share since it would introduce you guys to a couple Undeath of Me characters you have yet to meet. (Ethan’s wife, for one. It also features a vampire my patrons have been getting glimpses of since January 2017.)
There are a couple other exclusives I’m considering making public, as well, but I’m far more indecisive about those, so I’m just going to forget about those for now and see how I feel about ‘em another time.
