Melting, I don't go hiding in bushes My name is poison_mara and I don't understand how you can have so little shame of yourself asking for RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS OF MONEY, for something far cheaper. I am writing on a FUCKING MOBILE .
Stop scamming people and go work for buying your luxurious pcs
I should add she said people here was bad and were insulting me when it wasn't true at all. People here have the decency to not asking 2,000 $ without explanations of proofs. And so pretentiously demanding the money as were hers
If anyone wants to stroll in here and ask "oH WhY doN'T YOu juST BuY Secondhand!?"
Just.... stop, Hun. Sweetheart, darling. Would you want something that some possible misogynist incel women and people of colour hating... stupid head! Possibly owned?
I'll be the first to shut you down real QUICK! Mhm, mmmmmm, uh-huh, that's right.
Let me be the first to tell you that you're really brave for creating this thread, mizal. It takes courage and humility to ask others to fund your thousands of dollars purchase.
Don't let anyone call you entitled. If they do, well...
They're most likely women hating bigots and I will FREAKING CANCEL them in all areas of what those kinds of people even call life.
When I purchased the laptop I'm using now (which didn't cost $2000) I did have to re-purchase a suite of professional graphic design software... which cost more than the machine itself. This was because the software licenses were strictly controlled, and the old version I had been using was no longer supported (and therefore renewing the license wasn't an option). So my only options were to buy the new versions of said software, or go with some monthly subscription service.
So yes, a new computer can be costly. But I agree it is pretty brazen to ask a bunch of forum goers to crowd-fund all this for you...
Wow, just wow. The more I see stuff from CoG the happier I am that I didn't accidentally end up over there.
The only reason to go for a fancier Surface Pro and get Clip Studio is so you can draw directly on the screen with a stylus and run graphics programs without it crashing. And since one should be able to redownload Clip Studio onto a new computer, chances are she wants an updated version. (Although perhaps it is not that easy to reinstall. I just checked for my old version of Anime studio (same as Clip Studio, just older name/version before the rebrand) and though my email has the license the download link no longer works. I might have to write CS if I want to reinstall it.)
Digital art is an expensive hobby, sure, but it isn't something she should expect others to fund for her. And if she does want people to fund her art hobby, she can get a Patreon. Or she can get a normal laptop and get a cheap $50 tablet to plug in so she can draw. It won't have the nice screen, but beggars can't be choosers.
How terribly snippy. Also, clip studio paint.....you can get an account code, or like, a password and email thing to recover your account.
What a silly person. I'd like to slap the silliness out just a little bit.
Ohhhh, I remember her. She hates everyone and knows everything.
lmao, is she really 35?
Haha, you're so short that you need to sit on your high horse to be at the same height level......hon
Is MeltingPro French like Maz?
"Give me your money hon hon hon"
I don't need your damn money!
I'm sorry I cannot donate at this time. I know your needs go far beyond mine, as a cis het white male, but I haven't paid my rent yet and I still need to keep up on the loan I took out for car repairs. If I don't get this repair, I don't know how I'll make it to work, and then I won't be able to buy you coffees anymore. I'm asking for a little extension, maybe a few days to sell my bed or something so I can contribute properly. It's all I can do, ma'am, so please, don't out me on social media quite yet. I'm sorry, it's already been too long since I've flogged myself, I can feel the scars on my back starting to close up, so I'm going to end this message and go do that.
Please don't hurt me,
I am not fancy with sarcasm. But if I were a scam, someone, I would create a fake Kickstarter with a video demo . Not be lazy saying
GIMME YOUR MONEY HONEY...
I'm willing to pay for your new computer in exchange for a green card marriage. And keep it non-romantic please, I already have a twin sister.
She is german lol
she is french and can marry darkspawn now
She is german as she bragging to me about Germany . She had a meltdown when someone said Nazis are bad
she french now, hon
She is a French collaborationist with Germans then
Bahaha, oof. As someone who lived in Germany, Nazi apologists are not looked kindly upon except by one or two faaar right political parties. So if she's from Germany she's probably a social outcast.
Or the social justice fundraisers where someone belonging to a visible minority makes a fundraiser for white men to donate in order to "level the privilege". I can't imagine looking myself in the mirror after creating or donating. . .
oh what the fuck, I haven't heard of these lmao
honestly not all that surprised
Family guy has an episode about The black guy was demanding to the white family that owned his family, 200 years ago, money so they pick their brownies as they were poor as hell.
Is chapter where Peter discovered he had black ancestor
What a coincidence. I actually OWN a company that makes HIGH END computers.
I will GLADLY gift you one for free. All I ask is that you give me your consent for it beforehand. We make them using child labor and we destroy entire ecosystems to build one very fancy computer at a time.
If you're ok with this, just sign on the dotted line and I will gladly give you one. Free computer, a couple of dead third world children and disruptive factories in developing countries in exchange. Sounds like a good deal to me!
The slaves are working on them as we speak! If I need to make enough for everyone, I'll have to tear down a few more trees in the rainforest to make new factories, but this is for a worthwhile cause.
Wow! Thank you so much, I should have hired YOU as my regional manager and not that foreign chick that can't even speak English but I can pay pennies an hour to.
upgraded because its you
Just some other screen shots of this fun filled meltdown. Jason of course already unlisted the thread so it isn't accessible by the public anymore. Which is funny since that hides all of Meltdown Penguin's writing as well.
Chinese breeding laws for Mexicans confirmed.
I can't even figure out why this makes me so mad, but it does. The level of entitlement it has to take to ask for that much money, for no apparent reason is entirely beyond me. The fact that it sometimes succeeds just makes me want to die.
If you actually needed a new PC then just ask for 500 bucks. (That is unless you want a gaming PC, in which case 700 dollars will do for most things.) 2000 is way too much. (This is coming from a person who built a gaming PC, so take my advice. Please.)
Or steal a computer from NASA. That works too.
I need it if it's my life.
She wants Clipstudio and 'needs' the Surface Pro, which is one of the only notebooks that you can draw on the screen with a stylus that is still good enough to handle art programs. My laptop doesn't quite have the Ram to handle Photoshop well, so it is always glitching/freezing/crashing. It is true that for digital artists, costs add up fast. It is difficult to get a nice setup (either laptop + decent graphics tablet or a notebook that acts as both) for less than $2000. But that's for either dedicated hobbyists, freelancers, or pros. The typical kid drawing anime fan-art on the side isn't going to need a laptop to handle 60+ layers in Photoshop or to render 3D models. And now days they make non-display tablets for cheap! You can easily get one for under $100. Or just get a scanner and do art the old-fashioned way. It's the Display tablets that are expensive (When my WACOM Cintiq broke and I couldn't afford $2,000 to replace it, I had to settle for an off-brand, but that still cost near $500. Unlike her, however, I'd already set money aside. I didn't go begging random strangers on the internet.)
For typing though, yeesh, just get a used laptop for $100 and call it good. If she'd asked if anyone had an old used or otherwise broken laptop to spare that could still run Open Office, it might have been understandable rather than entitled and pathetic.
send mone pls thanks
I don't have any money, but I can mail you a thumb drive with a pirated copy of MS word and photoshop on it. It'll save you like, thousands of dollars. Then you'll need like 200 for a functioning laptop!
There are so many free alternatives to photoshop and word. Seriously. Open source, constantly updating....NOT owned by those shitbags at adobe (who will try to sue you for using their software lol).
Libre Office? Google Drive? Medibang? Medibang is a god send. And also, there are plenty of questionably legal ways to obtain photoshop and word if you really set your mind to it.
I have never paid for anything ever, in my life. Nor have I done anything wrong. I am a saint, everything I do is right, you all have my blessing to pillage the spoils as their existence is evidence enough that they belong to us.
support artists who really need it though okay
GIMP is pretty cool
Right now Humble Bundle has a very nice sale on Paint Shop Pro Ultimate and Corel Painter 2019. You can get them both, plus a slew of other nice plugins and brushes, for $25.
Not free, but $25 is a steal for Corel Painter. With so many deal sites on the Internet, almost anything goes on sale at some point.
However, you mentioned the phrase "open source" and Google Drive in the same post, and that angers me. Don't listen to this idiot, people! Go use Nextcloud!
Gimp is an amazing Photoshop alternative. There's a fork of it in the works, called Glimpse (although the name is still being decided on), for anyone that might find the current name offensive. So you've now got no excuse at all not to try it; except being blind, of course.
Woops, didnt mean opensource for Googledrive, hurdedur. That's a big nono. I use google drive for a lot of sharing files on my team, but I'll look into nextcloud.
Gimp is gimpy but still wonderful for photoshop editing stuff. I mentioned Medibang for the artists out there. Medibang is an illustrating artsy tool for all the artsy fartsy kids out there who dont wanna cough up the cash for ClipStudio and the like it accepts pretty much any file, constantly updates, has a free cloud save system and a million tutorials and brushes and mods. Super cool, and very friendly to artists. Also very intuitive as lots of the shortcuts are pulled from Photohop directly.
When working on assets, I generally jump in between my Very Legal Copy of Photoshop and Medibang, they support each other very well. Medi for illustrating and Photoshop for editing it up for size and effects.
