Those are cheap. But I'm too cheap even for that.
...damn I messed it up...
Can we colab on a smiley face?
Underpriced even, know your worth. Until then lets collab
Ehh to be fair the red one wasn't really begging and didn't go all bananas after they were told no :/
I can't believe you've done this!
Yeah, this sounds more neckbeardish than choosy.
Ugh, a guy on a dating site once bitched at me for including a smilie face while (politely) turning him down. Something along the lines of, "I'm good, thank you, but I wish you all the luck in the world! :)". Like, go ahead and assume the actual worst from anyone just trying to be nice. Jeez.
"Do you have commissions available? Preferably cheap? Oh, seems like I don't have the money. How about a collab? No? Okay, I'll get going then. Also, I know you didn't mean it, but that smiley face felt like a spit in the face."
Dude was perfectly fine. He even acknowledged that OP didn't mean it and was just sharing his own reaction to the emote.
I mean, why share that reaction? I can't imagine it's anything other than wanting to make blue feel bad about not doing free work, especially since it's a massive overreaction to a really common way of softening a negative-sounding text. It's okay to feel bad about it, but there's a reason most people don't have a direct feed between their brain and the keyboard.
Ah that must be the dreaded smiley face of hate. You can tell by the beady little eyes. :)
I think it was manipulative. But it was.... not great. Not begging. But not great.
Know your worth. Just not with me.
Read that in a fucking British accent. The internet has ruined me.
I read everything in a British accent because... I'm British
You sicken me!
That's exactly what it was. Emotional manipulation.
"You didn't actually do anything to make me feel bad, but you still did. Either change your mind or I hope you feel guilty, because that's the only power I have in this situation since I'm broke."

"I know it's cheap but I want it free"
How much do you bet that the 'collab' is just them telling you what they want giving artistic direction?
My favourite saying is "go suck shit through a straw."
Not so bad until you get a mental picture.
YEE HAW PARTNER!
Is that in a British accent too?
