I've made some decent progress on the new comic lately (I'm over halfway done) even though I've also had some back sets (like a power outage) and I've been fairly busy. By far the biggest thing slowing down my progress however is my dying laptop.
My old and slow laptop has an increasingly hard time running Photoshop, limiting the size I can work at and as I said slowing down progress by taking a very long time to save a file/page and taking more and more time for every action as a page gets busier.
I wish I could afford to buy a new laptop (it has to be a laptop due to traveling), but unfortunately I can't. I hate to just ask for money but also dislike the idea of charging for everything I make. This gave me the idea to charge for the new comic but with a 'pay-what-you-want' system, that would give you the download after the buyer pays whatever amount they can or want to pay for it, including nothing at all. There's a few ways I can do this with PayPal as the easiest option, but unfortunately PayPal doesn't allow their services to be used for the purpose of buying or selling adult products. Another option I found would come with a $9 a/month subscription at the very least and using that option would mean I could and most likely would be losing money after not releasing something new for a while.
So unless someone can point me to a way to use a 'pay-what-you-want' for selling adult material that doesn't ask a monthly fee (a site asking for a percentage of the profits is fine by me), that idea goes down the drain. I personally can't think of anything else except maybe accepting commissions, but to be fair to the commissioner it would mean I will have to concentrate on doing those requests as well as my mediocre skills allow me to, so it would (at least until I can afford that new laptop) significantly slow down any other projects I've got going on. And besides that I rarely get requests for free work in the first place.
As I said, I hate to ask for money but I'm afraid the day my laptop won't boot up at all is nearing, so any ideas on how I could earn some money for a new one are more than welcome, just like general donations or commissions for whatever price you see fit (as long as it's not something as ridiculous as '$1 for a game with these functions and routes') of course (contact me at TheNecromancerDonations@gmail.com).
