status: feedback needed!

We are quickly approaching the end of the first month of this project; I think it's been a rather promising start, and I will definitely be continuing it :) I'm happy that so many sketches have reached the first participation target within a few days of posting, and I hope to see some of them meet additional targets so I have the opportunity to work on them further and start to build a body of more finished work that can be developed into products.

To that end, I am looking for ways to both expand my audience and thank members of my existing audience for contributing. My ideas so far have been to provide higher resolution files for prompters and sponsors, to post details of cleaned-up sketches for every $x in tips, and to select a random sponsor to receive a free print when a sketch reaches any 'finished' stage. Am I on the right track? What specific things can I offer that would be appealing?

posted this week:
Faerie Wedding (rough and cleaned-up sketches)
Tin Man (rough sketch)

Tips: $30 and a plush bunny rabbit
