I saw recently that I had somehow managed to get 40,000 subscribers on this channel that has been otherwise dead for the better part of a year and a half. Thank you to everyone who was here from the beginning and those of you who liked my videos enough to hit the subscribe button.
I've noticed that plenty of youtubers, animators and artists that I follow are using Patreon to help make money. I've thought about doing it as well, but then I said "nah." Having a worthwhile patreon account sounds like too much trouble for my lazy butt. Making exclusive stuff for patreon followers, releasing videos on a somewhat regular basis (some of you guys know how I am with deadlines), and just dedicating a lot of my free time for a hobby-turned-job. If you guys wanna support me and not have to throw any money my way, just watch my videos with adblock off, maybe click an ad or two (it helps, but don't click shady ads. Google kinda sucks at filtering spam ads) it's an easy way to say "good jerb, Ocarinaplaya." I wouldn't want to make a Patreon and have people pledge money to an erratically inactive account. I do occasionally take on commissions for local studios, so that helps too.
Do excuse more of my singing. I was having fun. This cartoon took a total of 10 hours to do. Those of you who follow my deviantart, I got a little impatient cuz I managed to finish the animation that I didn't wait to let those of you who also wanted to sing submit your voice. You can still offer your voice and I'll try to upload it on deviantart.
Also excuse the sparse number of background ponies in the backdrop, I was rushing and was feeling lazy towards the end. :P
If you're wondering about how Doctor Whooves and Assistant 4 is coming, I have a preview out on my deviantart account: http://ocarinaplaya.deviant...
It's still a work in progress, but at least it's getting done. I really want to have the first part done before the end of this year and I've been kicking it into high gear lately.
Thanks again for 40,000 subscribers!
(might dabble with a couple of Game Grumps animations and continue VG Cats once Doctor Whooves is done)
