A little business advice and a rant...

I'm going to say this because I am in a very angry fucking mood anyway. Therefore I should take advantage of it and say what's on my mind. At this moment, I don't really give a flying shitty rat's ass what anyone thinks, so here goes. Someone contacted me about doing a commission for a game. OK, fine, I've done it before, so no problem.

Then he says I'll get paid after it sells. Then I say, well, no offense, but I've been promised that many times in the past, as have many of my
