Am not sure yet. But I definally want to get a comp which last a maximum amount of working time (3-5 years). Simply put it, I want to get an expencive one with warranty. I want to make a lot of art and even make a big projects like comics series or even short animated films. Basically, mE want to make it big!
two ways can be approached when getting a computer. Get it retail or build it yourself. Getting it retail gives you usually a year warranty unless you pay for longer. Building yourself depends on the parts which can range from buy as is to 5 year warranty. Building yourself could save you the 200 to 800 dollars you would usually spend buying retail. Either case, a good computer that will last you at least 3-5 years can range anywhere from $800 to $2,000. Now that's a computer that will keep up with all the latest ram sucking programs out there. This is also a computer that will also play video games decently if you're into that thing.
Cheaper would be around $400 to $800 but that's pushing it for minimum specs for the great art programs out there. I'm sure there are others I'm not aware of (I'm not an artist, just a fan of artists) that would make a low end computer handle things easily. So the computer all depends on what you plan to do with it and if said computer will be a laptop. Laptops add around $200 from what I've compared.
Of course I planing to release human/anthro comics. But not for a dollar, for 3 most likely. Drawing comics is a lot of work if you want it to look good. Maybe I will do a couple of comics with a half quality for a dollar. Right now I making that comic with a bunny girl and human. It…should be out next week…I planning at least for it to be that way.
Okay, then that's reasonable price that I'm sure several people can afford. I'll keep an eye out for the link when you post it online via deviantart. I was actually making a reference to an old movie but still looking forward to the comics.
