Client: I saw your advertisement for 3D modeling services. Can I see your past work in Blender?
I linked to my portfolio.
Client: Do you work with Animate Games?
Me: No, I haven’t animated before, sorry.
Client: No, ANIMATE_GAMES! They made games on Roblox like One Piece!!
Me: No, I haven’t.
Client: Can you make stuff like these?
Me: Might take a while, but I can do that for you!
Client: How much do you charge? Or is it free?
This was a huge red flag for me. I post prices in the advertisements, and this guy doesn’t seem to understand how much time things can take.
Me: About 20$ an hour, pretty cheap if you ask me.
Client: I know better people than you, and they do it cheaper. I guess you can’t work for me.
Me: All right.
