ARTIST BEWARE: -deymos-

WHO: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/-deymos-/ their tumblr: https://darkhumorist.tumblr.com/ ( NSFW WARNING ) it's pretty much inactive as well

WHERE: on fa @ http://www.furaffinity.net/user/-deymos-/

WHAT: fullbody commission w color for 18 euros

WHEN: March 29th, 2017

EXPLAIN: I commissioned deymos for a doodle commission ( a fullbody w color ) back on March 29th of one of my oc's. https://i.imgur.com/dveGtDs.png I sent her the little form that she had on her submission post that advertised her commissions and sent it through notes. https://i.imgur.com/dXGQ8hl.png

I sent her the payment through paypal: https://i.imgur.com/wYIrdLX.png?1 I censored out something in the screenshot since it shows their real name. Two months pass by and I decide to send them a note asking about an update on my art which I sent on May 23rd. I normally don't try and bug artists too much when it comes to commissions but I figured it would be alright to ask since some time had passed. The note in question: https://i.imgur.com/iNnzPhR.png and https://i.imgur.com/q3kkCuC.png They replied to me a day later with this: https://i.imgur.com/4395WBc.png in the note they stated that I would see my art within the week which I was super excited about. I thanked them for responding and then I left them alone after that.

By the time I realize it, three more months have passed by. I send them another note around July 5th asking for another update. https://i.imgur.com/KvdPWA4.png Currently as of now, the note has still not been read. By now I'm already starting to get concerned and worried about the lack of responses. I sent them one last and final note asking for an update: https://i.imgur.com/JufRJCI.png which was on Sept 12 which has not been read either.

I kind of effed myself over, which I know is my own fault. There is no way I can do a chargeback or get my money back at this point since I waited too long to do so. I decided to leave them a shout on their fa in the hopes that they would see it if they ever got on their fa. https://i.imgur.com/dbkH3TI.png

At this point, I'm unsure of what else to do on how to resolve this. They have no other social media that I know of besides Tumblr which I found out to be just as inactive as their furaffinity account. I tried sending an email through their PP email but got no response back. Other than that, I would highly advise against commissioning this artist. Any help would be appreciated!

I also apologize if there are any mistakes here or the format looks awkward. I've never posted to AB before and it's my first time. I just hope I'm doing this right. Feel free to let me know if I need to add more on to this!

Is there any activity at all from them? If they still posted/faved I would be inclined to say they ignored you, but since there is none I am more concerned about either skipping out accounts or that something else happened. I wouldn't put it on you too much for not asking for too many updates, here is to hoping the artist pops back up with the art/a refund.

Their FA is completely dead, unfortunately in terms of activity. The last art/commissions they submitted on their account was on April 10th. Their last Favorite is pretty far back too, around August. It's been almost 9 months already- I'm hoping that they didn't do anything that bad as to skip accounts.

They also have a DA account:

It's also dead, though.

Yea.. I had a feeling that would be the case. Surprised about the DA though. All that I saw on their FA was a link to their tumblr.
