bad work help

So recently i had got someone to do some work for me. I looked at their examples and i liked what they did. Not bad work at all. So i decided to comission them. I got them to do a pin up of my scalesona. That was last week over FA. But i had a recent event that had me not being able to pay so i asked for my work to be put on hold since i didnt have the money. The next day i get a message it was done and a demand for payment. I had looked over the work and it was ok but so many things were wrong. So i told them what all was wrong. They told me they could fix it but that suddend demand and the sudden finished work had caught me off guard. Plus i even resent the message of me not having money at the time. But they still chose to ignore it. So i told them to redo the work at least. And having been with other people who i paid to do work for me, i thought it would take a few days. But it came in the same day. The work came in even more wrong to my character and it made me upset badly. What do i do and what do i say without seeming like a jerk? I haven't payed yet so i dont know what to do.

Edit: so i did get the money and i am still demanded to pay for art that i really didnt agree on.

(I would post images and links but on my phone due to no wifi)

Advice ?

i guess i need some advice on getting a refund.

i was purchasing a character from someone on FA and we agreed that i could send the payment in instalments as the total was nearly 200 dollars. i got to send around $110 in course of few months and was almost ready to pay the rest very soon when the artist notede that they don't want to wait anymore and they'd just refund me. i was okay with this, i did want the character but i understood the artist not wanting to wait since it was already been 2ish months. i also owed them a trade which they had finished their part from so we knocked a small sum from the refund as i didn't have much time to finish my part.

i waited for the refund for month, then another. i didn't feel fair to contact them a lot about the refund because i felt hypocritical since i had taken so long to pay in the first place. so after 2 months i noted them and asked if they were going to refund me soon and they said they forgot that they owed me $90 and would send it soon. it has been over a week from that note and i haven't still gotten it. should i note them more often to remind ? they have been selling adopts and have gotten the money they owe me (and more) but haven't contacted me about it.

i'm to blame here too but i'm just thinking what i should do as i don't want to seem pushy. thank you.
