The issue has been resolved :)

I got into contact with beeejaay recently about the commission after she saw the journal on here and she has apologized and sent me my commission at last :) Thank you so much everyone for all your support :D

Wow...
You're the second person to post here about her. I really hoped it wasn't true :/

Re: Wow...
Is it just me or is the other post about Beeejay mysteriously gone?

I would've demanded a refund but I'm the kind of sensitive guy who takes insults as criticism of something I've done wrong :P I think it's been at least over a month so I can't get a paypal refund :(

So am I the only one who thinks you seemed a bit demanding and over critical about this? I mean granted she should not have promised to have it done to you in an unrealistic time frame, it does seem like you have been pestering her a fair amount which would frusturate any artist. 7 weeks is longer than you intended to wait, but as far as this community goes, that is no where near as bad, and had you been a little less insistent about it, she might have been more willing to sit down and do it all in one session. And then on OC you were critical of her artistic process. I can understand wanting a certain final product and for it to look a certain way, but you have to remember 20 dollars does not mean tons of work and do-overs. She seems a bit impetious to be sure but at the same time you seem a little obessed with this commision and what you expected it to look like, and it seems like you frustrated her to the point that she didn't want to deal with you any more.

Preahps I'm just feeling like devil's advocate tonight, but that is kind of what I can see happening from her side of the table.

I can kind of see how things could have been handled a little better on both fronts

The bottom line is. She and him agreed on a certain time frame that the art was suppose to be done at. I think giving her 3 months for a badge that is suppose to be done in 2 days, is more than enough time. Also, no matter HOW you look at it, ignoring a client is NOT how business works. She should have bitten the bullet, got the work done, then told the buyer how she felt and tell them they did not want to work with them again. This is the THIRD time i've heard her do this. I was just told a friend of a friend at AC was suppose to get it, but Beeejaay said "I'll go get it" then never saw Beeejaay again.

Reading this and some of the replies, I think there might be a couple of things that aren't quite clear in your original post.

Can you give us a timeline of when you pinged her for updates? (like x times the first week of May 08, x the next, x between such date and such other date) Constructing a timeline might better illustrate whether she's been ignoring you or if you really are being a bit of a pest.

As for the "okay i can't do this, you really need to stfu" thing. I almost spit my drink out when I read that, lol. But seriously, folks don't usually say that out of nowhere, unprovoked. Do you have the chat log of the conversation leading up to the outburst? It might be that you stepped over a line at some point, however good your intentions were.

Also, I was under the impression you waited 7 weeks since you got your last response from Beee, but another commenter is interpreting it as 7 weeks for the entire duration of the transaction. Again, dates would be a good thing to have here. Was it 7 weeks since you've heard from her last, or 7 weeks since she first agreed to do the commission?

I gotta agree about the 'stfu' comment... I was eating cereal while reading that part, and very nearly choked on a mouthful. Even if someone was full on nagging, that's still more then a bit rude, especially after she took money for this and was already past the deadline she set herself. And over basic pose/character info and ref picture stuff? Heck, most of the art I do is *FREE* for friends, and I'd still fully expect a slap in the face if I were ever that rude!

And yeah, basic timeline would be nice, the original post is a bit vague.

Yeah, completely unacceptable behaviour, leaving information out in order to secure a job, telling the commissioner to STFU, not working to a promised deadline. I don't blame you for being upset.

Hmm, yeah, reading your logs... I must admit that you went a little bit overboard with the contact at several points, I think I'd be irked at any commissioner who tried to talk to me as much as you were sometimes. You might want to tone it down a bit for future reference.

If an artist says... say, 3 days, really now, it should be done in 3 days. Keeping word on deadlines is very important. I'd love to see her keep up this type of work ethic and survive in the freelance world where business hire her for work. Art is art and reputation will follow, whether you're doing furry art for people on DA or FA, or doing work for companies.

As for the STFU part, that's appalling.

And this artist's reputation looks to be pretty much in jeopardy. P:

I used to chat with Beeej quite a lot. Never commissioned her, though. I don't commission many people. :C

But yah, that STFU comment made my jaw drop. No matter WHAT a commissioner was saying to me, I might ask them to back off, but I wouldn't tell them in such a...way...

The idea that people think it's acceptable to hold paid for merchandise/services hostage as 'punishment' for being contacted it is just appalling. Don't take those sentiments to heart, zooty_snowpaw. Sheesh.
