“Hey, I’ve designed these and plan on selling them.”
Mac: “These are so bad I wouldn’t buy them. I never buy anything, I just recast. But if I did buy things then I wouldn’t buy these.”
Poor guy got run off by someone who was never going to be a customer anyway, no matter how bad or nice his sculpts were.
Nope. It went like this.
Rich: “I am passing the hat around to make these figures, if anyone wants to give me money.”
Mac: “The figures are highly derivative and, worse, look like toy boats. I do not like them. Here are some RL examples which may give you better ideas. There are plenty of unemployed sculptors who could help. Good luck with your project, but I won’t be supporting it.”
The guy didn’t get “run off”: he left in a huff because someone gave an honest critical and constructive opinion on a gaming site.
Again, I notice that no one has even bothered to respond to him on DakkaDakkaDakka or LAF, but luckily Rich seems to have gotten word that his post fell off the front page of the latter site, so he’s now repeated himself and passed the hat ‘round again, god bless him.
I hope he makes his kickstarter quota, I really do. And I hope you’re helping him out with that, Priest, because he’s such a “poor guy” and you’re so adamant about the raw deal he got for having to listen to an honest opinion.
