Hi I'm Kishiro, I'm a freelance illustrator and animator. I'm seeking assistance in maintaining my freelance business by helping me buy new and up-to-date components for the computer that I use in drawing and animation.
I've been a freelance artist for almost 8 years now and the computer that I'm using is already more than 5 years old. I would want to buy the parts on my own but unfortunately right now I don't have the extra budget to spend for it. I worked as an animator at a local animation studio last year and the management was terrible that I ended up with more expenses than earnings. My savings before is now almost spent and now I'm back to freelancing to pay my bills but... the old computer that I'm using is starting to fail. A few months ago, the graphics card broke and I was just lucky that I have a spare but it is also an old model. Then a few weeks after that the motherboard broke and when I went to the local store to buy a replacement, I learned that the model of my motherboard is already obsolete more than a year ago and the newer models are incompatible with my old one so if it completely breaks, I would be forced to buy the more expensive newer parts. I was just lucky to get a replacement even though with lower specs. With this low spec motherboard, I could still do illustrations but not animation and long videos because it lags and slows down due to workload.
Now I'm anxious because my computer lagged too much and blue-screened a few weeks ago and I don't have the budget to buy the expensive newer models. My current earnings are just enough to pay my bills and I have no extra budget to spend. If my computer broke, I wouldn't be able to continue with my work, I will lose clients and without it I wouldn't be able to pay my bills.
That is why I'm here asking a $1,500 assistance to buy replacement parts. Any amount is greatly appreciated. I will try to think of a reward in exchange for the help and post it in the updates section. :)
Also, here are some of my drawings. I hope you could help me keep my business running. Thank you so much and God bless to all of you! :)
