I was approached to do some textures for a guy recently. Looking back, there was some pretty obvious warning signs, I still don't even know the name of the project this was supposed to be for, if it even exists.
He now pulled out of the project because I didn't reach a deadline and feigned some emotions so he could get out of paying me for what I've done. This is obviously a fuck up on my part for not being safe enough but it's left me with a few questions.
Do you guys secure half payment before you start working? And how would you take payment? (I'm guessing paypal?)
Any help would be really appreciated. I definitely don't want this to happen again.
