Well ... usually I don't do something like this, but this time it was a little too much.
I already did requests without beeing payed for.
I already did comissions for which I've beeing payed.
There were times, when I refused a request because it didn't work for me.
There were times, when we couldn't negotiate a price for a commission.
I'm fine with this.
But simply "I can't pay" ... without asking for a price ... or without talking about the theme of the request ... that's strange, at least. It's especially strange if this comes from a 10 years DA-Member with a 14 month core membership and a gallery with the last post of 2008, a profile with the last post of 2013. I don't think, that the core membership is donated.
I spent > 1000$ in 3D content. It takes hours ... sometimes days of work to create a good image. Where's the problem, if I'm asking for money if you want to keep your requested image in privacy?
Are you a kid, with daddy paying your core membership ... and do your mom knows about your requests?
