8:25 PM i think Connie, what shemeans is, if we want a more complicated ad, the file size will get biggerconniet.support: ahh ok
is there anything we can do with the logo?
how about resize it?
8:26 PM me: I tried making the file size as small as I could for the logo
Any lower and the important colors will get lost
conniet.support: i see
8:27 PM me: When I look at Cherry Credits, it looks like basically a sataic banner with some of the graphics on an animated loop after it gets into place
(There's some talk about trying to get the logo smaller. I mention that Cherry Credits' artwork makes their banners look good. Someone gives me a screenshot of their logo in-game)
notorand: from wad i know, that screenshot i showed u
it is png
the logo is png when it is put inside the swf
me: Do you have a vector version of the logo?
8:40 PM notorand: nope
afk 5 mins
8:41 PM will that help
me: Usually vector files (AI) are alot smaller than raster (PSD)
notorand: from wad the flash programmer told me
8:42 PM when u right click on the asset in the cs3
u have to specify lossless
else it will compress the image
i think that is why all the images u put it in is very pixelated
8:43 PM me: It was to keep the size below 60K
8:44 PM notorand: hmm ok let me think abt it, i get back to you in a few hrs time, thks :)
notorand has left
8:45 PM conniet.support: ok :)
we'll just email u hannah
ck: thanks :)
Then one of the people contacted me again right after that chat:
8:52 PM ck: Hi again.. BJ thinks the flash ad might not work out this time, but we;d like you to stick around because we like your illustration work :)
me: OK ^^;;;
ck: we will perhaps contact you soon for avatar designs, environments etc
8:53 PM me: ... So I won't get paid for the ad.
ck: no :(
me: .... Oh...
ck: yea because BJ is not happy with the result :(
he feels it is not your strong point
8:54 PM me: ... oh...
8:55 PM ck: yea sorry -_-
me: So if you don't like my illustrations, will I also not be paid for them too?
8:56 PM ck: hmm, BJ can elaborate on that more, so you can reach an agreement, he's very flexible and can state your conditions - so to speak
me: ... on the record
8:57 PM I'd like to be paid after I put in work, even if it's a kill fee
ck: you wanna get paid for the ad? i will let him know.. how much?
8:58 PM or for the future dealings?
8:59 PM me: For future dealings, I think it's best if we get everything in writing on the next go-round
9:01 PM For the ad, $30 is what I'm thinking of.
ck: definitely. like i said, BJ is open to suggestions. most of the artists we have a free-lancers. i'll mention that to him and your price for the ad
9:02 PM is that price fixed, or open to negotiations?
9:04 PM me: It's not set in stone, but I would be hard-pressed to accept anything lower
9:05 PM ck: ok i left him a message
me: Alright. Thanks
We are sorry to tell you but the banner ad is just not what we are looking for. It is just not up to our standards and we cannot give you $30. Hope you understand. Thanks.
