Just a quick little update. So my contract job ended about 2 weeks ago and have been enjoying a little time off since. Finally caught up one some amazing anime shows such as Noragami and Psycho Pass (highly recommend that one if you haven't seen it! Sort of has a Ghost in the Shell vibe with a futuristic society where cameras can predict if someone will commit a crime or not).
Anyway, my 'Christmas Present' turns out to be a dozy. Palace in the Sky Productions LLC / Heavy Cat Studios was the company I was contracting to make the Lords of Sovereign comic that I had posted some previews of. The original date this was supposed to be done was back in March of this year. However, Christmas time they get back to me after ignoring my requests for an update for weeks to inform me that I need to pay DOUBLE the amount initially agreed on (and already paid) if they want me to have them to continue to work, as they are having cost overruns and it is apparently my fault they estimated the project so low.
I'm attempting to get a refund through them, though it seems like I may need to get a legal contract attorney as they have been resisting doing so. In the close to 1 year since I contracted them, they have only done sketches and completed 1/3rd the linearts. No coloring, no lettering... it's like they spent 4x the time to get 1/3rd the work done! And they have the gall to say that's all I paid for when the contract that they made me sign and what we agreed on pretty much said that for the amount I paid (a few thousands) was for a FINISHED product, not a half product.
So yeah, Christmas time has been just a WEE bit stressful, and it sucks that this company ripped me off and failed to do any significant work since the end of 2012 when I first contacted them... XD
