I'm writing this in behalf of all the friends and watchers who've been following my webcomic "Cybie and Tykie" for the past two or so years. Before anything else, I'd like to extend my deepest gratitude and thanks to everyone who've helped in pushing the webcomic up and about. The characters and stories wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for you guys. Clearly, y'all deserve free cookies!
Unfortunately, I'm still unclear on how the comic will progress. Despite the webcomic being up for quite some time, it feels like it still needs more exposure for everyone all over the world to enjoy. Not only that, but keeping the comics up and running can be difficult especially if the target is to be somewhat financially stable through it (trying to veer away from it as being a weekly hobby). Don't get me wrong, though. Sites such as Tumblr and Smackjeeves have been a great help, not to mention the Facebook page where updates and news are posted as well. However, as much as I like to keep writing and making stories, it's just difficult not to get much from it all.
I'm humbly asking anyone who's generous enough to help keep the comics up by at least supporting my Patreon page (CLICK HERE)
, or at least help spread the link to others. I'm not demanding everyone to pledge mounds of cash into the project. Even a dollar a month from someone with a kind heart is thanks enough, just to at least pay costs for electricity for whenever drawings are done on the computer.
On a side note, to those doing comics or original works up and about, how do you usually manage the exposure of your work? Do you flood different art sites (may include but not limited to Behance, Pixiv, InkBunny, Weasyl, FA/DA, Tumblr) and hope someone notices your work? Do you use your work to earn a happy buck or two? In the case of having a certain audience, do you deliberately change your rewrite or redraw your creative work from time to time just to meet their expectations, despite having your original flow up for quite a while in the past, or do you stick with your main work and wait for an audience to find you?
I hope you guys consider helping a fellow artist out with this struggle. Looking forward to the better progression of the comics for you to continue reading. Cheers and have a great day~
