WHO: Jack_the_Otter

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jacktheotter/

WHAT: Inked and Flat Colored Digital or Traditional

WHEN: 2 months ago



EXPLAIN: These were suppose to be Free Art to anyone. However, those who donated would get one regaurdless and recieve a little something extra (maybe color or something).

My friend suggested him to me in a journal (which she deleted, and I didn't Screenshoot I didn't seem the harm when I trusted her judgement).
Of course, happily I donated to help.
Not really expecting it right away but within at least a month.

However, in his journals and gallery you can see he continues to take commission after commission. Never even thinking of  giving back to those who graciously helped him in his time of need.

Now, I'm not really worried about it, personally.
But I thought I would write an A_B in case someone else might fall into this trap.

I have contacted him once in a journal that got deleted as well, again trying to trust them i didn't get a screenshot, he told me he would get them done within the week.

That was about 2 weeks ago.

EDIT: Got contact and an apology from the artist with a WIP shot of the picture.


Agreed to be worked out for reimbursement for the long wait.

curious - how much did you pay and do you have any evidence to back up your transaction?

They do say that they won't be doing free art for everyone, only for the 13 they choose - though their wording is a little odd in that respect.

OP is second one down in this journal: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3119697/

And the artist goes on to say, "Goal of $40 has been reached.
everyone is to be inked and flat colored (unless i fell extra work is needed with anyone's)"

Ah, then they definitely owe this person - but their wording (the artist) is really iffy 'cause they SAY that "everyone" will be, but then say about it only counting for donators and then whichever characters they like. 'tis a weird situation, and I certainly think the artist is taking people for a ride

Yeah, unfortunately donations aren't as straightforward as flat-out commissions, and this artiat's journal even more so!

What caught my eye, also, was the newer journal asking for 'donated' fursuit material in exchange for art. With the list of still-owed pieces on it...

I agree, but it's more a respect thing with donations.
Someone is nice enough to help the least you can do is return the favor.

What upsets me really is he is begging people continuously to buy him things.
Then on top of that taking commission after commission.

Sorry here is the screencap, I only Donated literally what I had in my Paypal.
That is why I am not really worried about it.

It was only 2.50$
But I am more worried about others who had donated more and had been burned.

Re: Payment
I think with the amount he got from everyone, they were all small payments, but regardless he still needs to make good on them

Re: Payment
I agree.

I haven't dealt with this person on a personal/commission level but I've crossed paths with them before. They have a serious attitude problem and just seem overall unprofessional. If you get paid or donated to you need to give what is owed, end of story. I hope he makes good on his part and cleans up his act.

I'm scared to ask for a picture.
And if it is a donation I don't want money back which I hardly think he has the money to give.

I just want even an apology.
Mar. 27th, 2012 04:51 pm (UTC)
You deserve more than an apology, but if he can even manage one I'll be surprised.

I'm also curious if he's even aware that you posted this here?
