Oh my... hot water! Sorry for the cinisme, but that's really something that any creative have to know (but unfortunatally, didn't apply) from the beginning. It's doesn't matter if you do something for fun. If someone want to gain money from it, it's worth you a part of that money since the start, because you had done the job before hand.
Someone needs to tell this to some of the sillies falling for this add (prolly many, but this one in particular I know is a scam) floating around on the forums. There are so many young and wonderful artists falling for this "exposure" gig... It makes me sad.
I concur. My eternal fault used to be willingness to draw or write for free - to do a favour or 'get the exposure' or whatever. The only outcome was, people assumed me as the bloke who does stuff for free. Never again. 'Nuff said.
