And now one that is going over 4 years.

I am posting about a commission that was the result of winning a action on furbid. The artist name is Arphalia and the sum of money payed was $130.

Now before people start yelling "proof of stfu" here is what I have. I cant seem to recover my furbid user so I cant pull up the info on that end of the deal.

I think I gave the person enough time. i know life throws us alot of curve balls but everything has its limits.

Edit: I have been sent a payment from her and we have reached a understanding. Seems also it sparked her to put more effort into catching up on things.

I am pleased with he quick response.

So...what, she just never finished your art? When was the last time you contacted her about it? She's been doing lots of pictures lately. Or maybe just posting old ones.

She's really popular. Popular artists charge whatever they want. 8D

Sorry about that.

Was for a full color single char drawing. It was a latter commission if im recalling correctly. I asked her to make a char pic of one of my rpg chars from a rpg called Alpha City.

That was the sketch she gave me. I emailed her back my feedback on it. Basically saying I liked it n it was what I was looking for when it comes to he pose n all.

That was the last I heard about anything.

So did you never try to contact her again after that?

Personally, I think it's time you ask for your money back in full... Long past that time in fact. I know that it takes a long time to finish commissions when life has other things in store for you, I take a LONG time to finish commissions! But four years and all that's to show for it is a sketch is a little uncool if you ask me. I hope you get a REALLY badass picture, or your money back soon. =)

Try to get a refund. That's way too long to wait for a commission.

I'm not going to make excuses. I've been trying to get refunds back to people (and have been refunding them one by one) and I'm very sorry its been taking so long. You've every right to be upset.

Has your e-mail changed in that time? I think Devilfox might be placated if there was a mix up, and his last few e-mails have been going to a dead account.

Just a thought.

Well I am not upset about it I am more along the lines of puzzled about it. I did email a few times when you posted your new email addy n got no reply. I am understanding that life is not perfect but I do feel you kind of dropped the ball on this one.

The only reason why I posted it on here was because I thought this would be the last step I would do about it. Giving that I did give a extended amount of time to get a reply along with me having 8 hours of free time after my military mos reclass school... I desided to do this.

Ok I got a email reply back from Arphalia. We will be taking this in privet in order to work out this situation.

I have been sent a payment from her and we have reached a understanding. Seems also it sparked her to put more effort into catching up on things.

I'm happy with the outcome.

Hey, and thank you for saying this. It means a whole lot and you didn't have to do it. And you're right it did spark me into throwing more effort into keeping people in contact. I think my art journal says pretty much everything, though I sent off a few emails already as well. But yeah, I said it in another reply above, but thank you.

Oh my.
I commissioned Arphalia quite some time ago, I think it was for $200.
She took a while but she did finish and ship it eventually with minimal poking.

I can ask a friend of mine who sees her IRL to poke her?
