So I was looking for a pixel artist to make a sword icon for my base, I received a message one day from someone named, "Feyr" We came to a price and I sent the first half of the payment on February 4th, 2018 as you can see in this picture:
A couple minutes had past and he already had a draft of the icon going:
and then a few days later is when the problems started to occur, I hadn't heard anything from him in 2 days so I sent a message to just check up on his progress and he tells me he'll send the icon later on that night that it's almost finished:
then six days pass and he says he will try to get it done that Monday, then 7 days pass and no word from him yet again. The following day he finally sends me a message saying he's having some money problems at home cause he dosen't have any internet:
then 11 days pass and no word, the following day he messages me saying he's sorry and he's still internetless at home and I understand sometimes people go through struggles so I said that's okay and hope to have something when you're able.
the story goes on and on, he keeps saying he can't send the icon. At this point I'm getting rather upset because he could've simply put it on a flashdrive and went to a local library or something at this point and sent it over. But today on April 10th, 2017 I finally received the icon: At this point I'm relieved and say my thanks, I then begin to look over the icon and boy does it not end here. Just about all the attack animations for the sword were flipped/turned instead of actually fully animated. Here's some of the states.
East state for one of the attacks:
South state for one of the attacks:
He didn't even do one of the attack states either, long story short don't hire BYOND pixel artists fellas.
