Payments Paused and The Final Hour
PAYMENTS PAUSED?THIS PATREON IS PROBABLY ENDING THIS MONTH?DO NOT SUBSCRIBE IF YOU ARE A NEW PERSON!!!?I was hoping to resolve this BEFORE July's payments went through, but Patreon hasn't been very helpful or prompt. Which I'm taking as further signs they want me to "voluntarily retire." As such, I will continue to deliver? this coming month's rewards, although some will be in limited capacity due to their sudden change of heart about me in particular, but then probably unlaunch this page. And I can only do this at THEIR leisure. This page might get suspended at any time! I am asking them to give me a month though. BUT BAIL NOW. If you have a pledge, move it to Subscribestar! Where I will be active for the time being! If you do not want to switch over, that is fine! ?I don't think I can rectify Patreon's ambiguous selective enforcement. (My own OCs are inappropriate??? Cteno is an animal??? I can't draw her anywhere, not even here??? Other people can draw shortstack furry all day though??? If they make a lot of money??? I can't use other platforms??? Other services??? Suddenly at the same time they're doing merch fulfillment???), and I can't afford to delete my entire backlog of work all over the internet to appease them. Nor can I afford that and still be able to grow while having my income held hostage.??THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL OF THE SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS! But Patreon's refusal to enforce all of their guidelines evenly, and unwillingnessto allow income on other platforms is not longer something I can ethically live with. Let alone financially...??I am so sorry for this inconvenience, but I definitely feel we are no longer welcome here. And they are forcing me out by making using the site impossible to use, instead of outright removing me. Which, hey, they might still do. So again, switch to SubscribeStar, or at least remove your pledges!??Thank you all again for everything!??- slugbox? ?
Big Changes & Platform Switching!
Im making this post against my financial judgement, but out of respect for myself and you all, who have supported me so much over the years. The large issue here on this platform is that theyve recently attempted to exercise a scary amount of financial and public control over me. Keeping this site as my main source of income is no longer an option for financial AND personal reasons.Essentially, under the modern Terms of Service here, slugbox becomes a project that belongs to Patreon. Meaning they reserve the right to dictate where slugbox can operate, where slugbox can make money, and how can slugbox can make money, and then hold my success here as a hostage. If I make ANY income here, they own EVERYTHING I do elsewhere as well. Obviously this is designed to prevent competition from other platforms, where I am obviously also active. This is... really ugly...As per the rules, I do not directly link my other projects and never have, but I will be moving the VAST majority of my support system to SubscribeStar, as well as an idea to run my OCs over on OnlyFans. Might take on some commissions to fill the gaps...The fact Ive never linked these sites from here wouldnt matter anyway. There was a conflict with a service I used back in 2014. Six years ago. The service isnt ACTIVE anymore. The link was HENTAIFOUNDRY, which I havent even used in... years and years...?? Thats not even this same site?? Last year they flagged Cteno, my own OC, as inappropriate because she doesnt have any breasts. Its why I havent drawn her as much here. That... thats no way to live... Ive been happy to bend my work to the needs of any singular platform to achieve success, but I cannot stand for a platform demanding 100% loyalty and control, especially in a creative field, and even more so in an adult content field.Im doubtful of this post. I feel like I have a gun to my head and can only say nice things. If theyre stalking my abandoned HENTAIFOUNDRY, of course theyre reading this. The past few days have been rough because of this. I do not feel able to communicate with you guys, my supporters who I love, ANYWHERE, let alone here. Its a very Theyre watching feeling. But this is no way to live or be creative, especially in a field like this. I feel like I have to lie to you all, and I have been forced to be uninformative as a result.But Im saying it anyway because you all deserve to know the truth, and if possible itd be good if you guys went to SubscribeStar and got rewarded before the month ticks over.In an encourage-to-move measure, Im going to drastically cut the content released here for the next month or so, assuming they let me stay, and then likely suspend this project. I cant afford to just CUT it suddenly yet... But this policy is not something I can in good faith encourage. SubscribeStar will run as it always has, and you should move there if you can. Ill have some revamped tiers there too while Im making the best of this situation.I just didnt want you guys to be charged another month without knowing whats going on. Thank you for all of the support over the years! I couldnt ask to work for better people than you all. 2020 is really bad huh?I definitely feel this is part of a purge of the midrange adult content. The big names arent going to have trouble yet, and the smaller artists arent worth going after yet... but here in the middle...?Pretty scared right now, abandoning all Ive built is... a bad feeling... but its the right thing to do long term. And I want to be honest with you all about it. You deserve that.- slugbox
NEWS UPDATE! Stay Calm! Had to do a soft reset!
Alright!Content rules change over the years and over time. This is normal. As happens, I've had a run in with my content becoming a little too, how shall we say, risqué for the current culture. That's normal, and it happens, and I'm happy to be both honest about it with you all and make changes for continued success.SO BASICALLY TITTIES GOOD AND STAYING. PENETRATION NO LONGER.AND THE VAST MAJORITY WASN'T PENETRATION ANYWAY SO IT'S NOT TOO BIG OF A CHANGE.I don't want to change anything Tier wise in regards to QUALITY, but I definitely should take the chance to alter the CONTENT. That's good for us all.The only tier that definitively offer explicit content is Tier 3. So I'm going to change that a little. Here's what I'm anticipating:Tier 1 - This is the general support Tier, so that's not going to change.Tier 2 - Will continue to offer pinups of of Fanart or OCs. No change.Tier 3 - I am changing this to an additional pinup, but with higher quality, and always fanart. No more penetration.Tier 4 - Will continue to be OCs by you all! No change!Tier 5 - Will continue to be OC based, and the highest quality I can offer. Won't include penetration, but didn't always in the first place.These changes should be visible shortly!But the explicit stuff? I'm gonna have to drop that here. If you feel like you want out, that's okay! I thank you for the ride and your financial support. If you're new, I'M SO SORRY THIS IS HAPPENING NOW!!The content I've removed from here I will release elsewhere, and then make amends to you all with extra content over the next month or so. I am sorry for the inconvenience and confusion. This is entirely on me for not being aware of changes, and wandering too far off course. And if the loss of the explicit stuff here is too much for you, that is okay! I am thankful for your support up to this point!!As always, I will try and cultivate options all over the internet, but I follow the rules that any particular site lays down. And I thank the Patreon staff for approaching me calmly about it!Thank you for the support over the past days, week,s months, and years everyone! Especially this year, which is an obviously rough one for us all. You can follow me on social media for other little updates about life and illustration.Let's be productive out there!- slugbox
Did some clean up!
It was all old and now publicly released stuff, which can be found at any image board or most of my sites! But I like a tidy house.
Tier 3! Who should I draw this week??Just reply! Remember, Tier 3 is fanart!
BONUS TIME!! OCs!
BONUS TIME!! OCs!Gonna do some OC doodles for Tier 3 this week. At least two or three draws, just like Tier 4 usually is!. The standard Tier 3 reward will also get drawn, tho Im continuing to pull from backlog suggestions for that.But for now, hello Tier 3 people! Please link your OCs below. PLEASE just leave a SIMPLE imgur link and THATS it, no other text, so I can easily get everything! Remember, this is not a RNG game. Because thats not allowed. I must legally pick. Rather, Im happy to extend boobie draws to you all and why not draw from some of YOUR girls instead of just mine? Variety is good!
