Where I'm at - What I'm doing

Hey all!  I don't know how many there are how check for updates on this blog, but for those who do, and anyone new who happens to chance upon it, here's an update on what's going on with me.

Long story short, I'm posting updates on Tumblr now and I've started a Patreon.

My Tumblr
My Patreon

I'm doing this for many reasons, which I explain in more detail on my Patreon page.

Essentially, I don't want to have to charge for my work, run ads, or any of that bullshit in order to earn money.  I want to be able to create without restriction, and without forcing people pay to see my content.

Patreon offers a way for me to earn a living creating the art and games that I want, without forcing people to pay for it.  Supporters sign up to donate a small amount for any time that I release a new game or animation.  This can be as little or as much as you'd like, and you can set a cap for each month (in the event I release a ton of content suddenly).  You'll also receive some rewards for different amounts, such as free sketches/animations, and more direct input on what I make.

This model allows for those who have the extra income to help support me, and who want to see more content from me, easily help out without large lump donations, and get a little back for their support.  You can think of it as buying me a snack, meal, or rent payment (if you're insane/rich, heh) any time I create something.

As I said, more details are on the Patreon page, so if you're confused or considering a pledge, check it out. You can also message me/comment if you have specific questions.
I really hope that this will work for both me and my fans, because it's something that I would really enjoy working out.  I really like the idea of knowing how much I'll make from my work (rather than the previous nothing as with most of my work, or an uncertain amount as with Nagai Yamiji), and that sort of stability would certainly help my depressive nature.

Anyway, I've gone on too long here, so thanks for all the support you've already given me!

Personal Dairy: I'm a poo-baby

Well, fuck, y'all.  To keep things concise, I'm letting y'all know that I'm going back on my anti-depressants.  They should help me kick my ass into gear and get Glory Hole RPG 2 done and out.  I have been struggling to stay focused on it or any other project I was working on, but the final straw has been the past few days have just fucked me for no good reason.

So yeah, sorry I haven't been producing stuff like I want to.  I blame my father's lousy genetics, heh.  The allergies and predisposition for hypertension I can deal with, but this feeling like shit for no reason is bullshit.  It takes about two weeks for the meds to really have an effect, but after that I hope that I can really crank out GHR2 and I really hope everyone enjoys it!

Thanks for understanding!  Assuming you do understand, this is!  If not, just know that I'm sorry; I would change it if I could!

The good news is that I haven't been a completely lazy piece of shit.  I have done some work on the game since I last posted.  The cum engine has been implemented, the movement has changed slightly, I've drawn the backgrounds for the game, I've drawn the girl's body, and, most importantly, I've hammered out all the design decisions (like what all the upgrades are going to be).

Here's a screenshot, let me know what you think:
I go plan on showing a second breast, since the uni-boob looks just slightly off, but I'm still in the process of programming it - as you'll be able to choose breast-size and they'll jiggle appropriately, tehe.  If it looks off for another reason, let me know, because my anatomy is pretty much bullshit.

In other good news (unrelated entirely but good news nonetheless) I have lost like 25lbs.  I've been dieting for about 3 months, and it's been going well.  So, uh, yay me, I guess.
