Look at it this way. It's as if Kusto had an idea for a song and that he wanted to borrow someone's tape recorder so he could have a listen back. You responded by offering to charge him to use your tape recorder, and then trying to upsell him a 24 track recording, "for a fraction of the cost". This isn't just tacky, but it goes against the forum guidelines.
You offered your work for a price in the forum. If you're here to make money off HR members, you'll soon find your posts edited (as your first one in this thread has already been), and you may find yourself labeled not unlike the GMG guys who posted here on HR.
Also, I assure you I appreciate the time it takes for quality work, whether it be drawing, playing a musical instrument, or sports, anything. I'm obviously not as talented as you are in drawing. But you will never see me challenge you or anyone else at drums, guitar or hockey, or drop names just to prove how good I am at it.
My apologies. Out of line. I will only offer to help with photo chops. Only if someone asks me directly. Nothing more. I do not have to "Name drop", or prove anything. Your post came across as jealousy. If you were offering to help him... why didn't you? I am giving more than advice or direction. For example...if someone wanted you to sand a few fenders a week for free on a weekly basis and then they wanted you to paint it would you offer it for free?
I offer a lot for free. Therefore, I believe I am being supportive to other members. That says something, doesn't it? I will no longer post any illustration offerings. Thank You.
