Based on the steadily rising number of watchers that this profile and the collaborating profiles are receiving, I'm going to assume that answer is a yes. Each page is viewed on an average of hundreds of times, and many of the pages have broken 1,000 views. This is stellar news no matter how a person chooses to slice it. Especially since that, until now, this was done entirely without an advertising campaign.

However, I must unfortunately take this time to let you all know the obvious: It takes time and effort to create this material.

Patreon Grafted by general-sci
Oh no... They're asking for financial help...

Don't get me wrong, creating this series as it goes along has been its own reward. I honestly feel a lot of satisfaction in creating these pages with my collaborators. Each of them are talented writers and artists that have had tremendous impact on how this project plays out. Truth be told, there are no leaders in this gaggle of creators spread out across a continent with little chance to see one another in person. This truly is a project that shows the potential of the digital age.

That being said, waiting tables and washing cars isn't the best way to keep a project like this going. Our equipment and software must be kept in working order like another other creative group's equipment. I, for one, must use the Adobe Creative Cloud service. If I were to run out of funds, I would no longer be able to create the digital landscapes that now adorn the backdrops of our comic (I even updated one of our older pages from issue 1 to feature such a backdrop). My illustrative collaborators would have to cover down on my absence. Same too if one of them had an equipment hiccup like AraghenXD 's recent laptop fiasco.

We need to keep this ship going, and you (Yes you, the one reading this) can help to keep it going.

Below is a link to our Patreon page:
www.patreon.com/generalsci

For those of you not in the know, Patreon is basically an online tip jar. You get to set the amount you wish to donate per month. These funds will be split evenly between myself and my fellow creators: AraghenXD , DatFilthySora , and TheChitinousTeen . If/when you are unable to meet your obligations (say, you wanted to get a milkshake rather than support us that month), there is an easy process to discontinue your support (though, admittedly, we'd more than welcome you back if that were to be the case).

Right now, we're still working on rewards for people that support us beyond the normal amount. So there's no need to go overboard at this time. Right now we're planning two bonus 12 page comics. One is titled 'A Night as The Heretic' and another titled 'Consuming Darkness'. How to appropriately distribute these comics is still in the air. Needless to say, they work to flesh out the universe of The Grafted.

So yes, please stop on by. We hope to keep bringing you The Grafted on a regular basis beyond our original 72 page story. :)

Yes, it's true. I'm in a bit of a slump at the moment which is why I haven't gotten around to finishing certain requests I said I would.

This web series has taxed me in ways that I did not foresee. I doubt I'll be returning to do requests in any meaningful capacity for some time.
Grafted Correction: Issue 3 will start it's upload on September 12, not Sept 5. I apologize for the delay.

This is becoming more like commissions than requests. :(

I'm terribly sorry that you feel that way. As I stated before, taking only one request per week lets me work on my own projects without being bogged down.

That said, I understand why you feel that way. I will say this: A big part of the reason why I took up drawing was so that I wouldn't have to ask others to create artwork for me (whether by request or by commission). I am confident that with time and practice you can achieve any quality of artwork that you set yourself to. :)
