Didn't Oniram specifically say that this email (which he has posted) was AFTER he declined, and Jim kept asking him why he declined and kept on asking and poking him in less then understanding attitude?

Irrespective of the harassment I feel Oniram could have displayed a bit more self control in his initial response and dealt with him in a much more respectable and professional manner.

Reminds me of something that happened to me here in Melbourne, I was contacted by a guy who sounded a lot like this asking me to show him my folio.
I told him my folio was old and that anything new I had done was on (local gamedev site) and that I was actually pretty bad.
So he responds to me just like this Snakecake's guy. *shrug*
Checked out his website, was just a background with a blurb saying how awesome some 'next-gen' game he was making was.
Told my housemate, she said, "Yeah I worked with that guy once. You seriously dodged a bullet. He's got a pretty bad reputation as an asshole and likely wont't get hired anywhere in Australia now."

I'm going to try to change the tone here and say that the character model looks decent considering it's made by a freshly graduated college kid with no industry experience.

The character artists I graduated with had demo reels 100x better than that... even the worst ones couldn't produce work as bad as that character.

Which is also besides the point.
That guy should not be working for free for someone who is just there to take advantage of him, he should be enrolling into polycount university and not waste his time with that anti-dev.

Mmm. I know of the guy you're talking about. I'd call him out, but I don't remember his name or that of his company, which isn't particularly useful. I applied at his studio myself when he first opened it up and he said that he wasn't interested in anyone who had any experience. Very dubious.

It's a shame someone gave him money when there are people around the country who would actually put it to good use.

Its way too common, a previous boss of mine used to do this shit, we got funding from a major backer and the first thing he did was buy himself a very expensive car and start living it up.. fast forward 8 months and he cant pay people for their work.

Sorry for the silly question but isn't the boss supposed to send a budget report ??
I thought that standard in any company or I'm just mixing things up .
