If you ever receive a note from user DON'T believe him EVER
I had my bad experience with that person and I'm gonna tell you about it
As you see in first screenshot there was a favor for comissioned artwork for a level of android game
I was totally ok with it, there was plenty of work and I even was prepayed at first (I asked for quarter of full price which was 100$ for one level as it was stated in first notes)
And this is ONLY money I ever get from this person. He is NEVER payed me full price.
And besides I was asked for things I shouldn't make which is for example complete level design instead of only artwork. I stated many times that I'm NOT a level designer but I was asked to create scheme for a level in PSB file and what's more to divide it on different color schemes AND construct it after I finish all assets! From this point it started to look suspicious cause I felt like I was asked to do EVERYTHING (level artwork and level design AND construction without any proper tasks from comissioner except few words about it looking "gloomy" I mean it was like I was forced to CREATE all design ideas for myself which is NOT normal even for this amount of money)
I started to draw detailed background for central area and various sets of different assets and worked as hard as I could, I literally worked myself out with this task. Below you can see some pieces of my artwork for that "project"
And what's more I was also asked for even main character design and I won't even comment this one...
I just wonder how much "main artist" of that "project" doing since I'M ALREADY DOING EVERYTHING
And when I finished assets for pink region I was completely stunned with this
And I asked to pay me more for pink region cause it was too much work
as for one complete level of the mobile game, and I was asked for more work and this two or three areas must've been completely different from the first one I worked with. And all this on ONE single level (sounds crazy!)
And for few weeks there was no single message and I waited patiently. And one day suddenly I received this messages:
Paypal fees? Seriously? I believed one last time and that was pointless of course. To put on hold one pretty big game (which is supposed to be Ori clone for android) to start another? That even sounds cheesy. And there was still no any payment OF COURSE.
Below you can see our last messages.
And after almost a week or so I finally understood that there is no way I'm receive any money for my previous and future work. So this is my warning for all of respectable artists from DA: DO NOT TRUST THAT PERSON IF YOU EVER RECEIVE A NOTE FROM HIM.
I was fooled so simply that hurts! Next time I'm gonna work with full prepayment....UPD: After this post he saw I mentioned him in post and I got banned permanently from his account. Though one of my watchers left warning comment (I guess he'll hide it when he finds out) Anyways, thank you all for supportive comments!
