I like drawings just fine, but I love the "plot" or situations that go with it. The before/after if you will.
Originally I was gonna commission comics, but I had 2 problems: those pages are really expensive and they take up too much time from the artist, meaning you're always at the end of the line.
If I had the money, I no doubt would go the comics route. Hell, if I had the money I would probably waste it in commissioning longer animations.
Unfortunately, the money I have for smut is small change. I can do 1 pic for month, or I can do 1 or 2 stories per month. When I weighted them like that, the choice was clear to me.
I like reading and when I read these stories I feel like I get more out of them, be it physical or mental pleasure, than I get by looking at the pics.
It helps that I do give out very detailed outlines to the writers, so I have an inflated sense of helping out in the creative process, something that I never get with artists.
