To anybody that does pixel art commissions: I "hired" a friend of mine to do pixel art for the outdoors of one town. He's not sure how much to charge me and I'm not quite sure how much to pay him myself. What's a fair starting point for negotiations?
I always told my DA fans how much I hate slot machines. They're fine in games as a risk-and-reward system. But when you're spending REAL MONEY in a Vegas casino to try and hit the jackpot (which very, very few people will), it can really hurt your budget. Gambling is a bad habit, and I don't like wasting my money on a slim chance. Go to Vegas for the experience, not the jackpot.
