Please:

1.  Don't bother hiding your art behind a pay wall.
2.  Please do not succumb to the rhetoric, ideology and dogma of Patreon 'groupthink'.
3.  Use dA to advertise your stuff on Patreon.
4.  Censor your stuff here with a, 'P' symbol.

I think the above:

1.  Displays exceptionally bad manners to the viewer and the host website (dA)!
2.  Places too much emphasis on commercialism.
3.  Places art beyond the realm of the masses and into the exclusive realm of the rich and privileged.
4.  Sucks the enjoyment and life right out of art.
5.  Encourages artists to beg and scrounge to, "Be my patreon".  My answer will always be, "No.  Fuck off and get a real job."  Why?  I don't appreciate being solicited by third parties to support them in their 'work'.  Remember: It should always be the consumer that approaches the retailer/vendor.  Not the other way round.  Double glazing anyone?

A wise man once told me people are like mushrooms.  Why's that?, I asked.  'Cos they're kept in the dark and force fed sh*t.'  said the Wise Man.

Don't be a mushroom.  Do something original.  Create your own website & art brand.  And drive ppl there. 

Honestly, dA just lately has become an advertising billboard for Patreon.  I have stopped following and blocked anyone using dA in this manner.  These aren't artist's.  They are capitalist whores less interested in art as a product than they are in lining their own pockets due to commercial incentive and greed.

Let's get real for a second.  The only real winners here are Jack Conte and Sam Yam - the co-founders of Patreon who take a 5% - yes 5%! commission on pledges and fail to keep your data secure. 

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that I pledge $10.00 a month to see this wonderful 'art' product.
Over a year that's $120.00 of which 5% (or $6.00) belongs to JC & SY. 
Let's say that you have 50 pledges exactly as above.  JC & SY get exactly $300.00 (gross) out of a pot of $6000.00. The exceptional artist gets the rest ($5700.00) for working his ass off to deliver on his promise.  JC & SY only get $300.00!

Now consider that there are 150,000 other mushrooms [sorry artists] under the Patreon banner all contributing art with the same pledges and following.
This nets JC & SY $45 million gross for doing exactly fuck all once everything is up and running (anyone remember that cyber hack a while back?).

Patreon works on a numbers game.  The more people join the better off the co-founders are.  In the meantime, the resource pool for pledges is finite and so diminishes.  You, the worker mushroom, graft your collective asses off and walk away with a likely diminishing pot of $5700.00 per annum.  The co-founders host the website, collect payments and forget to keep everyone's details secure and walk away with a cool $45 mill.  How is that fair?
