Mysterious Missing Mooncookie (of deviantart)

So, around Febuary, she posted  an offer for commissions. I should have seen the huge neon warning signs, but I was seduced by her beautiful art and upbeat attitude.

OOPS.

I think I've learned my lesson that 25.00 for a 2 char peice with FULL background is not going to happen.

Anyway, she did great and rapidly got me a sketch in about a week. I was impressed! She kept in contact once per week letting me know how things were going, and got as far to show me a colored preview - a screenshot from Photoshop. Looked good. I asked her to change my nose color to black (people often do it brown)

And she.... Dissapeared.

My last "active" email from her is sometime in April. I started emailing her weekly after that to try to see if she was alive. Nothing, nada, not a thing. I doubt I"ll get art or money at this point as I have no other contact for her, so I just want to warn others to avoid her entirely. Nice art nice attitude but dissapearing is unforgivable.

Gah. Just wanted to say, yeah. I know it could be interpreted as my fault, since I didn't see the huge warning signs (Such as who the heck does a full background peice for 25!?)but.. yeah, the lack of communication from her side is dispicable. She could at least say "hey, I bit off way more than I can chew, have your money back!" but who would do that, it was taken in a situation where she needed the money: its spent. Lets face it.
