    After severe legal issues I now only accept work with a retainer upfront, and a very well defined milestone payment system afterwards.

    Small claims takes an absolute lifetime to fight through.

    Re: Don't ever be a freelancer.

    I've done quite a bit of freelance stuff, and 99% of it has been for free. If you don't have a large amount of experience and freelancing isn't your main source of income you should be glad that he's offering you something. If freelancing is your dependent source of income and you are experienced, that sucks for you hahoha.

    I've been doing 2d/3d art for money for years and make my living from freelancing. I wont work free and dont like to do spec work, however slendermans shadow was spec work and its been one of my biggest sources of income.
