MavisRooder's News

Posted by MavisRooder - 3 days ago


This is the second comic strip that  I go into an area I am trying not to step into - for not being "my cup of tea".
Then why do I do it ? For attention, for my own sake - for fun, but basically to see my patrons reactions.
I've stretched the story into whole 37 pages - which could be really annoying to read by the people.
I should learn how to tell stories in short pages.

Sadly - the "Witcher" comic didn't get the interest of the "public". So far because of the weird and funny comics, I'm getting mostly commissioned inquiries and "pats" on the shoulder. 
Sadly - again - the school schedule of my kids will change my own schedule and that will affect my commission jobs - by reducing my time and presence at home significantly.
That's why Im trying to "collect" as much patrons as possible - and the only possible way for me to do that is to draw comics.




 


Posted by MavisRooder - July 27th, 2018


I'm currently reading "The Last Wish" by Andrzej Sapkowski - the author of Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher. I also play the Wild Hunt, so I'm kinda "infected".
Now to the point. I'm going by the book - the way it was written - like a fairy tale book - the chapters are not connected to each other - they are like separate stories and that gives me the option to separate every story into a different comic issue. This could be a long-term project. I'm intending to finish the first chapter - and illustrate it into an entire comic strip. The comic will contain violence and explicit sex scenes - so no little kids are allowed! Of course, I'm not affiliated to Mr. Sapkowski or the gaming studio or any studio that produces the comics with the Witcher's label. I'm just a fan, nothing more. I'm intending to finish the first chapter and finish the entire comic - which will be explicit - so far I made up to 6 pages - the first to see the pages will be $5 patrons. 

Since I'm not the owner to the characters I cannot sell the comic and I don't intend to do that - I'm going to show out all the pages for free on my site: www.mavisdraws.com - except for the pages that contain sex. That all in order to avoid the copyrights troubles or problems - so guys - keep that in mind - I'm not advertising the character, but my skills and efforts - if you wish me to proceed my work on that comic - and you choose to pledge some cash - you're doing it because you want me to do that - as personal supporter. 
I've posted a goal on my patreon: www.patreon.com/mavis - it's the first goal - if I reach it - I will upload every page /including the explicit/ outside - and thus I'll get your support and people will be able to see all the stuff - outside.

So consider becoming a supporter of my work on the Witcher by pledging on www.patreon.com/mavis - and let me know that you came to support my work on that on DM.

Now - about the art style: The hardcore game fans will probably be unhappy - where's his beard - he doesn't look like him, his armor, his swords, his horse, etc.
This is my own take on Geralt. The horse can be different in each issue - he has many horses and changes them - but he name them all the same: Plotka/or Roach/. I haven't decided yet which name I should use. His clothing, haircut, a beard can and will be different too. I choose this style because it's faster for me to work with lines - I already started another work on another comic - and the Witcher idea came "out of nowhere".

Now a question: I'm thinking about to make such kind of looping and moving graphics as requests for patrons. Up to 2 popular characters from comics, movies or games in the same drawing.
This will a request, not a commissioned work so the guys won't be able to ask for changes - the same manner as I do with the illustration requests for top tiers (the people who pledge $10 ) and 12 of them are able to request an illustration with up to 4 characters in it.

The pledge cannot be too low: simply because it'll take me a lot of time to work on that and I have plenty of other works to work on. Also it won't be very cool to have one and same patron to ask for their own thing only to be "moved around" month after month - without causing a major uplift from the rest.

The pledge cannot be too high: simply because the animation is not that smooth and the quality is not top notch - hey I have eyes too and I do understand what I offer, yet I believe I'm not to be bashed and thrown away in the trash bin either. Also it has to be affordable, achievable and the patron not to be quite happy with the result - sadly that won't happen on 100%, but I'm fighting for a higher score of satisfaction.

So the rewards I currently have are : 

$1 - people are able to see every illustration I do + access to the special pricing
$5 - all the above + comic strips I do, and to vote
$10 - all the above + chance to 12 of them to get 12 different illustrations as request included in their patronage every month.

And specification of the new reward option: 

A sequence of images/animated gif/ that loops- with up to 2 popular characters from games, movies or comics - moving, shagging or whatsoever. The patron is sending reference image and waits for the result. Based on that I'm just uploading the image for the patrons to see it first.

Clarification: Requests are not paid jobs. These are part of the rewards and my way to show my gratitude towards the people who chose to support me. That's the point of supporting someone on patreon.
Since those are not paid jobs - the patron who's requesting is not able to ask for changes or reviews.
At the end the surprise good or bad is on the patron's side.
NOW - to reduce the unpleasantries - I'm asking the patrons to send me a detailed description and a lot of references of what they wish to see. Even reference to known characters - like Batman - we all know who he is and how he looks, but through the years they changed his appearance quite often - a reference photo is worth thousands of words. The same should be valid to the animated request.

Guys - some weird news.
My recent decision to work on this comic strip led to a series of "hits" towards my "financial stability".
I've noticed the positive comments of the people - of course, some other guys pulled the pages and upload those on forums around, but they were good sports and gave credits to me and my page - which is awesome and I'm thankful. The score the comic got was pretty high.
To those who don't know - aside from the cheap commissioned works - I was doing some paid jobs for other websites.
One of the major commissioners who was commissioning me to draw exclusive pinups for their site (means I don't own the drawings, and I get paid even not to put my signature below - but the pay was good and on time)Just before you ask what's the secrecy about those pinups - it was pinup artworks of famous celebrities wearing leather suits and that's that. I will not give the name of the site of that guy /people/organization.
The tone of the e-mail conversation was friendly - but basically - they gave compliments on the idea and "asked" if I'd be interested to continue work on "Deep space" and to be paid for it BUT - the only condition is: NOT to show it anywhere else but on their website only. Not on my patreon, not on my site - not on Hentai Foundry or anywhere - but on their site.  Also, they said that they have a writer who will work on the scenario and I'll just have to draw it.
I told them that the comic strip is my own creation and the conditions they put are not to my liking. Despite the need for more additional incomes I politely declined their offer and said that I prefer to proceed our work as usual. The response this time was harsh but basically was something like : " If you don't want to work as we say - we won't work at all. There are plenty of hungry artists around. " I was called "miserable fag" aside of that.
I didn't respond back and that clearly was the end of our conversations and relationship in future.
Another site I used to do some funny works noticed that I do comic and told me they want me to draw something like this to them.
I responded that I will not be having enough energy to do that - even if I wanted and some days later they said they found the "right" guy - and it was a pleasure to work with me, but none of them wanted for me to proceed on drawing single illustrations - once they saw the comic.
Some of my old patrons left after seeing that I became more active on working on a comic that didn't include something to their liking. I was always a fan of sci-fi and fantasy. Aside from drawing popular characters and superheroes - I want to do and show something that is completely mine.
Sadly for me, most of the people who pledge $10 are supporting me only because of the free request I'm doing for a bunch of 12 tiers  every month.
So guys - I'm confused a lot.
Working on "Deep Space" and comic strips is giving me pleasure - and I'm able to see that some guys like it, but again the money factor is playing its nasty role.
I need your help - and I want more people to pledge $5 - in order to support my work on the comic strips. This would be my speedometer - a sign that will show me I'm doing right. There has to be something special about the $5 tiers - so I made some extra pages of "Deep Space" and they are able to see it - I believe those additional pages don't change the main course of the story.
Some would suggest opening the comics to the lower tiers, but I believe I'm showing enough content - and from recent times they can suggest me to draw a pinup of popular character /they are able to see EVERY pinup and illustration I do/ , while $5 tiers are getting  the comics in addition and the ability to vote.
$10 tiers get all of that + a high chance 12 of them to get a free drawing from me with up to 4 characters.
Again - "Deep Space" is meant to be open to the public - at least the first issue. With more people to pledge for the comics support - I'd be showing the pages to outside /without the extras/.
So guys - HELP ME  - SUPPORT "Deep Space" and all the comic strips I'm about to do.
My plans for future comic strips include :
1. Deep space - with Anna the horian - scifi
2. Golds of Altir - with Kyana Antur - fantasy : 
http://www.mydirtydrawings.com/comic/golds-of-altir-the-dead-prince/
http://www.mydirtydrawings.com/comic/golds-of-altir-issue-2-the-beginning/
3. "Silvercity" - which is only idea ATM
/ both of them are connected to each other, beacuse I have a theory about dimmensions/.
4. One for the Laughs - which has to be "parody" with DC characters - and I'm having hopes to get help from Smiley.

I believe I'm a creative person. Means I have my own stories to tell to the world. And eventually to gain from it.
I mean - I want to entertain. Comic strips are an old love of mine. I used to read these when I was little kid.
I'm 40 now and I have my own kids myself. I had a change in my life and instead of being an engineer - I went into IT area as a graphic designer, and several years later - I'm here drawing mostly porn from home. What a twist!

Anyway - I have two separate stories to tell - Golds of Altir , and "Deep Space".
Those are the comic strips I have in mind. Every comic has to have a story, a text that actually is telling the story to the public - the drawings are giving an additional idea to it, making it more clear and appealing.
Now. English is not my mother's tongue  - and I'm not making or trying to excuse myself.

I used to ask some of my patrons to help me with proof of reading, but with time I had to stop doing that - my patrons are busy adults - they are having a family, personal life etc.
In fact, most of them showed a lot of enthusiasm and desire to help me out - sadly the TIME factor is crucial - it won't be polite to bug them and ask:
"Hey did you finished reading my comic ?! Hurry up !!!! I must upload it and show it to the others !!!!" - you can agree that I cannot demand speed from someone, who's supporting me and is giving me actual money - and on top of that willingly agreed to help me with proof of reading! 

So I had to finish the comic entirely and to give it to the patron and wait patiently until they find time to read it.
Now imagine this patron of mine having kids, wife, mother in law, three dogs and cat - and all of them demand for their attention. Aside - this patron is having a serious job with responsibilities - a boss who's an asshole - you know the usual. Yet this type of patron found a time and spare some cash to support me and reads my comics at the end of the week.

Another type are the guys who see the story and for some reason, they find inappropriate the use of curses, blasphemy or they just don't like the names of cities, places, planets... 

On the other side are the guys of younger age who love to type "LOL, at the end of every sentence" - and everything they see looks fine to them.

The only possible solution is to hire someone - to do it professionally without changing my plot, story or whatever.
I cannot afford that. 

The common with the types of people here is that they all like what I do - BUT they ALL HAVE Life to live.
And sadly my drawings are not their first priority and it shouldn't be. Still, they are waiting for me to come with something!
 
That's why "Deep Space" has "ongoing" status. I come with one/or more/ pages from it every week.
A user from HF told me about a typing program named "grammarly" - a widget that can be installed on your browser and helps you with typing. That's what I'm using. And it's working - Not because of the program.
I'm showing the comic out - and there are people who are pointing out the typos for me.

I'm going to show the first issue out - and I hope to get the interest of people to become supporters on my patreon.
This will give me hopes to proceed on working on more issues of it in future.
The guys who pledge $5 will be the first to see the pages when they come out. 

 


Cheers,
Davis

This offer of mine is no longer valid. At this stage of my "career" people are not interested or don't knew about my site. Too few came and asked for a drawing, but couldn't get "the quote" of people to get them backed.
I do that for the patrons of mine. And that idea is put on hold.

You can read it below.

 

 

Hey guys some good news from me - if you want a drawing - made by me - you can request me by posting comment on my site - under any submission.
http://www.mydirtydrawings.com/requests/ - Read this first. 
Registration is optional - and you can post as anonymous.  

Cheers,.

First the good stuff : 

I have started to work on comic strips. My thing now is my original comic strip " Golds of Altir" - it has swords, magic and monster and sex. Issue 1 is shown on my site absolutely for FREE:
http://www.mydirtydrawings.com/comic/golds-of-altir-the-dead-prince/

Issue 2 is also there, but this time it's in FLASH and has the sex scenes censored - in order to have patrons coming.

People who pledge $5 or more should be able to access the comics in all of their glory - and uncensored and to get all the goodies that comes with their rewards.

To make the things better I left the people participate into polls in order for them to decide about the following characters in the next issue. Let's say I'm trying to make people involved in the story.

The next thing is the header of my patreon. It took me quite a long time to get the "courage" and balls to make a better header with indeed - the stuff I do inside.
You can see the new header in here: www.patreon.com/mavis
1266894_150651195472_coverpatr.jpg
I also featured the main tags : Marvel, DC, Games, movies and Star Wars.
If you check it out the amount of the posts made you'd notice that they are not as much as I want - but the content I produce and I offer is mostly Original and based on the requests or commissioned by patrons and clients who follows different fetishes that does not include any known hero or Star wars character...

The guys who pledge just $1 are able to see all the illustrations I come with - and believe me there are plenty of them - coming along with their versions. 
You can read more explanations about that on my tumblr blog: 
http://mydirtydrawings.tumblr.com/post/165436838127/golds-of-altir-first-poll-results

Now the "bad" stuff : 

For different reasons that involves  the money part I decided not to post everything I show out for free - even on my site. I tried different approaches but what works good for other artists does not work exactly good for me. 

So far I'm using the insides of my patreon just like a blog. I post and it stays in there for everyone to come and see it. My intention is to delete the old posts with art I did back in 2015, when I launched officially my patreon. The old works will be archived and will be presented to the new patrons on demand - after their pledge is successfully transfered...

There are a lot of people (or robots ?!) who come pledge, grab - and leave - deleting their pledge.
That's not cool . Especially when I see some of my works on file locker sites with their logo watermarked over - like it's their own... 


Anyway - for now I'm keeping the things as they are.

And ... guys I'm "taking" hostages !
The object of my art attacks - right now -  are the characters from Monster High. I'm picking random character  from there - they became an art "hostage" to me. 

As an art terrorist - my demands are to get 250 followers on twitter. https://twitter.com/MavisRooder
If I don't get these - I'm showing only the censored version of the girl, while the uncensored and hardcore versions are presented inside my patreon : www.patreon.com/mavis]www.patreon.com/mavis (people who pledge any amount are able to see these inside)

If I get what I want - I will post ALL the versions of the character out - on my site : www.mydirtydrawings.com/

I already drew one character from MH. Her censored version is shown here :
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/mavisrooder/wanna-ride
and ONE of the several uncensored versions is shown in here :
http://www.hentai-foundry.com/pictures/user/mavruda/539665/Wanna-Ride-

The rest are inside the patreon of mine : www.patreon.com/mavis
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now. The next hostage is : http://play.monsterhigh.com/en-us/characters/bonita-femur

Of course my demands are as soon as possible - with impossible conditions : 
If I don't get 250 followers on my twitter until the end of THIS month - September 30 , 2017 - I will show only the censored version out !

So guys - free the hostages - it's all in your hands now !


P.S. I am NOT fan of MH, I don't watch or follow the show - don't ask me things about it - I know nothing.
