If I can make some excuses for myself: sure, I have a patreon, but I also make it my explicit policy not to tease with any paybait (cropped pics, or ones censored with patreon logo, or whatever), nor to have any strictly patreon-exclusive content.
All I do to advertise it is add an unobtrusive link somewhere in the background or on a margin. And I'm pretty sure you could photoshop that out in one to three minutes if you wanted.
I may not be the best artist, but I've been releasing new stuff on a regular schedule, uninterrupted, for like two years now. Cut me some slack and let me make a few pennies out of it, if people are willing to donate them without any coercion.
I'd rather have a few donations on the side, rather than have to increase my commission prices.
If you wanna hate me for that, sure, you're absolutely free to. But I ain't trying to run a porn pyramid scheme here.
