First of all, I would like to thank everyone for your appreciation of my artwork. Years of hard work and studies is finally paying off but it's still a long way to go for me as I am not "there" yet. And even if I get there, I would still want to grow and improve more. Don't want to become complacent. Art is a journey.
I apologize for not giving updates here on deviantArt. Just recently, I'm having problems with my desktop PC and struggling with my work due to its poor condition. I was already planning on getting a new rig before the problems came but daily expenses and monthly bills are somewhat preventing me from doing so. Now, I'm experiencing lags, slow downs, freezes on my PC and the worst of all - not booting up (sometimes). I think my computer is already at the brink of its life as it is already 6 years old. Earlier plan was to save up to purchase a new powerful one so I could work faster and make this old one serve as a back up PC but crap happens. I'm worried that my computer might die earlier than expected. Worst case scenario if it dies in the middle of my commission work. I draw for a living. It's my only source of income and it's what supports my family. I'm just in the early stage of my art career and I don't want it to end just because of a broken computer. I don't want all my hard work go to waste and I don't want it to become a hindrance to my goal of working for AAA game companies or in the movie industry or even creating my own IP. Because of the current situation I am in, I'm forced to do an Indiegogo Fundraiser as a backup plan in case my computer dies. I really don't want to ask for donations or start a crowdfunding campaign but because my career is at stake I have to do something about it. I know people will be skeptical in helping out especially if it's just a fundraiser for a new computer but I saw people who were raising funds for a computer just for gaming so I decided to try it out since my goal is not for pleasure but for my work. If you want to help me out, here's the link to my Indiegogo Fundraiser
. If you can't support me financially, you can still help by spreading the word. Anything that can help me reach my goal is deeply appreciated. I'm also open to suggestions that can help me raise funds so if you have some good ones just comment below.
I also apologize to my "customers/clients" on my waiting list who were expecting their batch to start this August. Like I mentioned above, I'm having problems with my PC so it's getting harder for me to finish an artwork quickly. For this reason, I have to adjust the schedule of commissions and things will be pushed back or delayed. Of course, if I can get funded quickly then I can get a new rig and will be able to make art faster than before. Faster = more art. For now, I guess those who are on my list will have to wait a little longer. Sorry for keeping you guys waiting, just be patient with me. If you can help me out that would be great.
Again, thank you for all your love and support! Hoping to create more art for me and for you. Sorry for my english. It's not my primary language
