So this year has been pretty messy for me. First, my cat Saffron got terribly sick and still suffers from various things, and on top of that Red and I keep getting sick. Sadly, we've reached an all time low with something I would like to bring to your attention.
On the 2nd of May Redeemer will have a rather complicated surgery on her face. She has a complication that is making it difficult for her to breathe properly and she's been experiencing chronic pain for a couple of years now. Actually, I'd say this is why she's not on dA as much as she'd like to be because the pain takes over everything and she has no drive to draw, talk to friends or even write the fanfic she had so much fun with.
She went to a doctor last year because the pain was at its all time worst and he completely dismissed her and sent her away without even having done any examination.
Then she got a second opinion and it turns out she has a hole behind her nose where there shouldn't be one and the bone structure has somehow grown off-center and this is where all the pain comes from. And the off-center structure is what obstructs her breathing.
The catch to this surgery is that in order to keep her appearance, Redeemer will require a reconstrution, which her insurance will simply not cover due to the fact that "some people can live with these surgical consequences and therefore are not required". Guys, Redeemer's not even 30 and I can't see why she has to have her entire face changed after a surgery that she needs.
I would like to raise some money but unfortunately I will never be able to keep this up with the sketch commissions, especially when I have this full schedule of working on my Patreon rewards, which I have to prioritize. If I DID do sketch commissions let's just say I'd be working on ONE EVERY DAY FOR TWO YEARS. And I simply can't do that.
Of course, everyone that isn't donating to me on Patreon is now welcome to join me for nice rewards:
Your support is needed more than ever
I wasn't planning on doing this, but I will therefore work on a special Hyrule Erotica set that will depict Breath of the Wild characters.The Fundraiser
Because I don't ask for free money I want to give something back in return: Something amazing.
The set will contain 5 pin-ups and the list of characters isn't completed yet but you can pre-order it NOW. The starting donation amount will be 20 Euros. If you are interested, please send me a note or contact me on Twitter if you don't have an account here (R3dFiVe
This set might only be available through pre-order. It is unclear as to when this set will be finished, but I am working extra hours in the evenings to deliver this as quickly as I can. It might be available later on but I want to concentrate on pre-orders because Red's surgery is in less than two months and I want to be able to afford the relevant anaesthetics which have to be paid in advance.
And if you guys can't do anything: Please spread the word.
Also, if I have any Lolitas following me: Redeemer is selling her collection to raise funds. Please note me if you wish to reach her.
Additionally, we are going to sell our Gamescom loot that we collected over the past few years in the near future.TLDR (Summary)
- Redeemer is in need of surgery
- Shitty insurance will only cover part of the cost
- I'm making a new HYRULE EROTICA set based on BREATH OF THE WILD
- You can pre-order it for 20 Euros
- Please consider supporting me on Patreon additionally
- or help spread the word
As always I want to thank all of you.
See you around soon.
