RIP, beloved Wacom Graphire 3 tablet. You served me well for many, many, MANY years. I know in my heart that you're enjoying a peaceful eternity in that great appliance store in the sky... Meanwhile, I'm up a certain foul-smelling creek without a paddle, because I need a tablet for my job, but I also can't afford a new one. Between crazy medical bills and saving up for my CELTA certification, I don't have two cents to rub together. I'm going to look for a used one on eBay, but even that is going to be murder on my budget.
So...dear sweet watchers, I need your help. I hate begging for money, because it's frankly embarrassing that I'm a grown-ass woman who can't afford shit, but right now I don't have many alternatives. However, I don't believe in asking for something without offering something in return, so I'm going to hold a raffle. Here's how it'll work:
PLEASE HELP ME SAVE UP TO BUY A NEW TABLET.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that every little bit helps. Anyone who donates $1 or more
will be entered into a raffle to win a free full-color commission
, to be completed once I've purchased a new tablet (I'll draw pretty much any human or humanoid character - OCs, fanart, smut, you name it).
I'm going to open up donations through my paypal account - Andromeda2311@gmail.com
. If you donate, please include your deviantart username in the message so that I can add you to the raffle list.
If you can't afford to contribute, please feel free to comment below with tablet model recommendations.
Again, PLEASE don't feel pressured to donate if you're running low on cash yourself. I'm only posting this journal on the off chance that a few of my watchers have a little extra cha-ching to help a poor girl out. I will update the following list when/if people donate, and after two weeks I will choose a winner, assuming at least three people contributed. Thank so SOOO much in advance!DONOR LIST: MobileHomer Chronorin Super-Chi cerebus873 SourJellyBeans Warriorking4ever TheLitanyofRa Barlee EndlessDestinyUPDATE
has offered to hold a supplementary raffle to help me out ^_^ He has structured it as follows: every $5 you donate gets you 1 raffle ticket. At the end of the donation period, he'll put the tickets in a hat and randomly draw one out, and the winner will receive a free commission. So, even if you don't win my raffle, you could still win his! (Thanks again, good buddy! I really appreciate it
