Donations

Wed Jan 1, 2014, 3:36 AM


Paypal Donations are now open.


Donations will be used towards:

Copic Multiliners which I used to draw my animations and artwork. While they seem expensive, their quality is worth the price. Fortunately, they last a decent amount of time. Given that I use them to draw nearly every day, they usually last about 6 - 7 months.

Data Storage that I use to ensure that unfinished projects will be protected in case of unexpected computer failure. The file sizes of animation cels quickly fill up space and I do like to keep the original files in tact in case I ever need to use a specific drawing again. I'd also like to save up for a hard drive device that is more advanced and technologically stable.

Update: My computer recently died out from unknown reasons, which is why I've been gone the past few days. We decided to purchase a new one, a cheaper brand but albeit did add up for all the parts needed. Since I use my computer as a main tool of my art and animations, I will also be using donations to help purchase with that and any other maintenance needed in the future.

Any left-over donations will be saved for future purchase of supplies.


Why make a donation?

Over the past 7 years I have been happy to bring free entertainment to people all over the world. As much as I enjoy drawing and animating, it is still very time consuming and hard work that I've dedicated literally thousands of hours towards doing. The donations aren't "payment", nor will I hold videos "ransom" or anything of the sort. While I do currently have a steady job, I believe that it's not unreasonable of me to host this service to whomever may want to contribute to it. The donations will be used and saved specifically for artwork and animation purposes.


Point Donations:

I will also host Point Donations to use for Fan-Club support, contests and personal use.


Other services:

Commissions; I will draw personalized artwork for a total sum.
Merchandise; T-shirts and collectables with customized artwork.

Donations are completely optional but very appreciated.
If you are under 18 and wish to donate, please get parental/guardian permission first.
Comments that attempt to slander or falsify my lifestyle will be removed immediately.

Are you cursed or something?
It must be the 5th time your computer dies without any reason.

I think it was just old, even the last one I got was less of a "new" computer and more like a hand-me-down. This time it almost killed Jack while he was inspecting it, there was a big spark like WUT! And similarly, about 6 or 7 years ago a computer of the same brand literally blew up while I was using it. Antec, don't get it. They blow up after a couple years. This time we got a new brand that should hopefully be a lot better. I'm gonna take good care of it!

Thank you so much! Any bit helps right now, especially after my computer blew up a few days ago. I was like oh... GREAT! XD I did get a new one though so I can actually continue art and animations once I get all my programs installed again. And yo happy 2014! I don't consider it a bad start, having a fresh computer will hopefully prove well!

You're very welcome, glad to help, especially since I wanted to donate but lacked the fianances to do so when you made your donations appeal back in 2009.

It always sucks when a computer goes to see the big microprocessor in the sky, but like you said getting a new computer isn't a bad way to start a new year at all.

Well thank you very much, and I appreciate you saw the 2009 donations positively as well. Back then I got so much hate for that one, I was a bit tentative this time around.

Yeah, I'm just happy I'm able to make more art again now, I was goin' cray-cray.

Why the hate? What you were proposing back in 2009 was very reasonable, its not like you were stating your fans owed it to you or anything like that.

Yeah I really don't know. Some people just exploded on me and called me a beggar, sell-out, lazy jobless bitch and a whole slew of other names. Even though I explicitly stated that underage individuals shouldn't donate without parental permission, I also had a bunch of people say I was only using the fans and trying to guilt gullible children into giving me their money. Epic shrug!

Yeesh, talk about telling people to get a fucking life. You're not the first artist to ask for help, financial support, patronage or whatever you want to call it and you certainly won't be the last. How many arts students apply for funding from arts councils and such organisations to help with their postgraduate studies or fund other training? How many people have raised money for their artistic projects through Kickstarter? That's unacceptable the shit they threw at you and I'm sorry to hear that Leggy, but to hell with them, you're still moving forward and improving as an artist and that's what matters.

Yeah... for a while I was kinda convinced maybe I was just being a shitty, selfish person. But not long ago I kinda had a sit-down with myself, looking back on a lot of the stuff I've dealt with and it's like; While I haven't always been the most mature person, a lot of the shit I've been dealt was really, really uncalled for. I don't feel ashamed to admit that any more, some people seriously are just dicks with their own screwy agenda. But yeah all that aside, I really do appreciate so much everyone who was and is supportive. It means a lot!

You're welcome! Thank you for over 6 years of entertainment and letting me fall back in love with one of my favourite game series of all time. You should be happy and proud, like I've said before, I'm still amazed at how much your work has improved!

Yo I am happy even, I'm glad I can help others find love for all them original sweet-ass games! I wanna keep makin more videos soon, but my computer actually exploded a couple days ago. Like what even. Now I'm on a new one though, Jack emptied his pockets while I was at work yesterday, but we still gotta re-install like every program ever, so it still might be a while. I can still draw in the meantime though so then I can have a Photoshop splosion when we get erry'thang.

I think I can spare you a little bit. After the entertainment you provided me over the years, and the important friends I've met BECAUSE of the things you've made, I think the least I can do is toss you five bucks.

Well yo thank you very much! Knowing that people have met friends, significant others and more because of my goofy-ass stuff is probably one of the coolest parts of everything that's happened. It's sweet as hell.

"If you are under 18 and wish to donate, please get parental/guardian permission first."
Are you just trying to avoid an incident or have parents contacted you before?

Both. Ever since I started doing anything involving money I've always had a similar disclaimer. Soliciting of minors is illegal in the U.S.A. where I still lived when I started such services so I wanted it to be clear I wasn't aiming to do that. Even with the disclaimer though, I remember the first time I hosted a donation I had people accusing me left and right of trying to trick kids into giving me money.

There was one incident where I got a random payment from someone. I had gotten a very vague message from someone on Youtube about a commission, like all it said was "i want to buy a commission" and never replied to my questions after. A day or two later I got a message via Paypal about someone demanding their money back since their kid used their credit card, as if it was my fault. I returned the money and told them as such, I'm not responsible if a kid lies about their age or identity. People can be a little cray-cray.
