I'll be charging $55 per Marquee, CPO, Side-art, etc.
2 free "major" revisions, and all revisions afterward are $5-15 depending on how major a change
(pay-pal only thanks)

Yeah so here is some examples of my work:

You charge for revisions?  So if someone isn't happy with the design you ask for more money?

You're gonna make millions...  And you only had to post in the forums once to do it!

Update: *noticed email address*  :D

Heh.

But to be fair to Blazix, when working on designs like these freelance, you do need to have a stopping point after which you charge for more work. Otherwise you'll find the design process stretches on endlessly which isn't fair. The same thing happens in my "day" job at work. The clients not given a stopping point will work endlessly... why shouldn't they? :afro:

  I know your pain my friend.  We 'post' guys could tell stories that would make most people light headed.  Clients!!  Argh!!  :banghead:

*Warning - Full size images NSFW.* Well, at least the page they are hosted on.

I just clicked on the House of the Dead marquee to get a full-size image from my work computer and some graphic porn ad showed up underneath it. I closed the window too quickly to get any more information.

  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

How about modifying the original post to warn people? They won't know it's NSFW until they scroll down, and chances are they'll have already clicked those images.
