Hey, want to be a patron of the arts?
Tell me more!
Sure. First of all, there are no ads on the site! (Unless you count the friendly green Support button.) You've found a small corner of the internet where your ad blocker can take a breather. That means I make no income except from what users care to contribute. I'm really proud of the site so far, but I'm just one person, and it's a ton of work!
If you'd like to make a donation, it would be a gesture in support of the good part of the internet. It would be like supporting a community garden instead of a strip mall. But if you don't want to, or can't afford to, no worries. Enjoy the site.
No ads? But what if I'm selling something cool, and I want to spend betwen ten minutes and one hour drawing an ad of my product? Maybe it could be one of the prompts?
Why did you make this site?
I'm a visual artist. I like words. I started making this site at the beginning of May 2020 as a pandemic project, in part for the sake of a challenge, but especially as a way to stay connected to a circle of friends through a fun, meditative, creative activity during quarantine that didn't involve another Zoom meeting.
That's half of it. The other half is that I got frustrated looking for drawing games online. There are other sites out there, but the prompts are too easy and you don't have enough time. I don't want to see if I can draw a table in ten seconds, I want to see if I can draw a dolmen in one hour. And I'd love to see how others draw a dolmen. Why not keep those drawings for the archives while we're at it? So let's say that dnq is the opposite of a hilarious free-for-all scribbling game.
Okay, but what's in it for me?
This is still a work in progress. Eventually, I might build a virtual economy where you gradually work your way up to the fancy paintbrush tool and who knows what else, but I haven't got there yet. The cool part is that for now, you just get the paintbrush for free! Amazing. Now, the one thing that new users don't get by default is a high Time Travel skill. Yours is probably at level 1 right now.
I can change that.
Now I'm convinced. How can I contribute?
Sweet. The simplest way is probably through PayPal.
- $2 and become a level 65537 time traveller.
- $5 for level 196609.
- Donate $10 or more... I'll make you level 458753, if you can handle it! :O
