It'll be tied up in litigation but at least they'll eventually win.
The worst I tend to get is Endless Revision Request Hell. Not nearly as bad...
Fortunately the press release was incorrect about the time it took. I spent two weeks on the spartans, and two weeks on the rest of the game lines/stain and graphics. I got paid for the other part (as an employee), just not the mural portion, as I was working as a sub-contractor on that particular logo. Usually the stuff I do is giant "color by numbers" and I don't get to be very creative
, even though I've done some pretty high profile, cool looking floors. The mural portion was a nice change (although the drawing we had to replicate was kinda lame) and I got to learn some new techniques from two very talented ladies. I hope they get paid soon.
Anyway, sorry to highjack your thread, I like your style. Back to the regularly scheduled program
