Beware: SanuraPanthress / Darth Ibony Sera

This is an update of what was originally a discussion post here http://community.livejournal.com/artists_beware/420021.html about how to deal with artists who don't like to be contacted, where the artist was not named. Even though it has been concluded by me getting a refund, and thus I was concerned that this may be viewed as a grudgepost, people who I have discussed this situation with advised me to continue with a beware due to her attitude and conduct.

Her pages are http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sanurapanthress/ and http://www.furaffinity.net/user/darthibonysera/ though it appears that she has now deleted everything. I have no idea whether this means she has run off on her current clients or not.

EDIT: She has moved back to DA, http://sanurapanthress.deviantart.com/ and appears to be in contact with at least some of her clients there so that is a good sign.Collapse )

Even though she has left FA and this entry may seem moot, I recall her leaving at least once before and there is every chance she may come back, or even return under another name. She is very rude and snarky despite how nicely you may try to approach her about an issue.

EDIT: A cap of her journal announcing her return to DA and leaving FA due to 'drama' img641.imageshack.us/img641/2769/journalentry12954818441.png
After becoming aware of this entry, rather than defend herself here she posted this img7.imageshack.us/img7/7655/igetitigetit12954873226.png

EDIT 2: Sanura came into the entry and seemed genuinely contrite we resolved things, or so I believed at the time.
Many months later she showed her true colours by publicly calling me an "entitled bitch" in the comments to one of her journals.

In light of this, the resolved tag has been removed as her attitude towards paying customer is and was the issue here.
