So you're angry at fatelogic for wanting someone good? or feeling that quality work deserves higher pay?
He's trying to find someone to work on something that he will likely not get paid for- it makes sense that he can't afford to pay an artist unless the artist is so amazing that the work will likely catapult the game quality into something lucrative.

It's rude to tell someone their cake is shitty, sure, but that's not what he was doing. And in any case, why do you care if you're not baking for him?

Well, I'm writing the plot to my web-comic right now. Hopefully, I should get some references and pages done soon. Just out of curiosity, though, who else here does a web-comic, and can you pass off any advice for paneling and writing?

He comes in every few minutes and the cake is of decent quality (but not up to his standards)
Then he has the nerve to tell me "I've gotten cakes of high quality from big shot bakers in New York, your cake quality isn't worth the money I give the guys in New York. Hell, I could make it myself."

So here I am, irritated that this guy asks me to make something for him, only to waste my damn time and resources, not just that, but boasts about the "so-called better bakers in NY bakeries", and THEN tells me that he could've done it all himself and that my cake wasn't worth his money in the first place.

Your analogy doesn't make sense because you're implying that the art forum is basically a place to hire artists. Which it isn't. It's a place where amateur artists gather, some with dreams of grandeur, some just for the fun of it. The art forum isn't a bakery, it's a gathering of aspiring bakers who are willing to show the world their craft and determination, even if the pay is poor or non-existent.

If someone walks into that meeting and asks if he can have a nice cake, but doesn't really have the funding to do so, then for the love of God, if you're not interested, don't berate the man. He was polite enough until you egged him on and started acting all offended.

I'm sorry Esc, I love you, I do. But I can't side with you on that one.

I think Morthagg and Aigis do one, but then again, a lot of others made one just for comic jam.

I see...Perhaps I should ask them. I have a good plot that I have written down for a lesbian-romance comedy, but am worried about paneling, writing structure and such.

He wasn't being THAT arrogant, the thing that bugged me that I didn't post in the thread about is $40... If you were a professional background artist that would provide the client 1-2 hours of work maybe, certainly not the amount of work they wanted. So they were being pretty unrealistic then, but in saying that we get these threads all the time and you shouldn't make a big deal about it... A new retarded free request will arrive next week I'm sure.

This made me laugh quite a bit. Had to have a look at the artwork too. I'm guessing it's stolen or something. I wouldn't know because I've never really been into the whole Bitey stuff, don't see the appeal. 'Tis good when Amaranthus gets his comeuppance, bravo sir.

You do find it difficult to make friends here don't ya ;). I don't see why it should bother you, the art mods are on top of that stuff. The most you can do as a normal user is just point it out and then forget about it. Basically, chill out.

Gee I must be hallucinating, I thought his was a public damn forum where anyone could give their opinion on matters posted in public threads. Use private messages if you don't want others pointing shit out and joining your conversation.

I'm pretty much open to giving you advice, but I can't guarantee I'll have the patience to keep giving advice. Also, I consider myself a very mediocre 'paneler', not being very creative with page layouts and such, so I'm not very sure I can help you there. There are probably lots of tutorials online, if you look for them.

Anyone else notice this 300300 guy. I feel like he'll get banned eventually anyway but I'm just wondering if anyone is seeing it, too. One of his pieces already taken down. likely took it down himself for damage control.

claims to be 19, has a lot of artwork, all seems the same sort of style so far. so that's not ringing any alarm bells, have changed some of the ratings (because of i felt it was "under rated" (so from E to T)... i am weary... either waiting for a slip up or a shadman v2

A few of them seem to be different in style, such as "To Love...."

One of his pics has been reported with a link to the original, so I reckon he'll get flushed eventually.

Find a book by Scott McCloud called "Making Comics", read it, be enlightened. Or find an online .pdf, who cares.

It's quite a helpful book. By no means should it be your only source of advice (opinions based off of one source tend to be incomplete or flat out wrong), but I would definitely read it if I had no idea what the hell I was doing.

Yes, the Making Comics book is a compilation of a ton of sources already, the bibliography for it is two pages long, bite me.

I have nothing to say that is at all relevant.

nah I reported one of his pieces cuz he was dumb enough to upload a page directly from an artbook with the page number in the bottom right corner. Either way the mods have noticed it seems so I won't push the topic any further.

Killed, found many pieces stolen via google image search, others he claimed were only a day old but i found sources of them from months ago, and a few he completely claimed one media, when it obviously wasnt anywhere close to the claimed one. Obvious thief.

Yes you have. It's basically Root Beer. Some say there's a difference (like me) but root beer is just a watered down version of Sarsaparilla. Anyway, the recipe. For public record:

Make a simple syrup mixing 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a sauce pan over low heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved and the water has cooked down to a syrup Mix in 1 table spoon of Sarsaparilla extract. fill a two liter bottle half way with water. Add your Sarsasyrup and about a Teaspoon of dry activated yeast. Mix vigorously. Then add more water filling about 80% of the bottle. Let sit for 48 hours. Refrigerate and enjoy. *Burp* the bottle by opening it after the 48 hours and every 24 hours to relieve the excess gas until the bottle is about half way empty so the bottle does not explode.

good job number 1, your star captain is pleased.
it seems I have some cooking to do this weekend... when I find some sarsaparilla extract...

didn't I read a tutorial on how to make extracts with vodka some where....

yep, I'm already putting the "Beer" back in "Root Beer...."

If you cook fresh ginger in the simple syrup (Basically candying the ginger) then strain the ginger chunks out, and use the ginger syrup instead of making Sarsasyrup you can makeGinger Ale instead. Or add Grenadine to the syrup and make Cherry soda.
