Beware - Yuurikin

WHO: Yuurikin on FurAffinity, Onika on Twitter


WHAT: Digital art, single character ($85)

WHEN: Paid on May 13 2016, I sent a note on August 19 2016 asking for a refund.

EXPLAIN: The artist opened for commissions in early May 2016 and I got a commission slot, payment was made on May 13 2016 ( in the total of $85 for a single character digital piece. The artist later made a journal in mid-August 2016 stating they were overburdened with a large commission queue and would appreciate folks asking for refunds (Journal since deleted). I sent a note on August 19 2016 asking for a refund ( I did not receive a response to this note so I sent a follow up note on September 22 2016 ( I got a response back from the artist a month later on October 22 2016 stating they were working to get mine and others' refunds out sometime in the beginning or middle of next month ( I stated this was fine (

I followed up on November 28 2016 when no refund was seen for the entirety of the month, proposing an exchange for a different commission, offering the artist another route out ( I sent the details of this commission on December 8 2016, did not receive a response, and followed up again on December 12 2016 to see what the artist thought, to which they replied "Yeah that would be fine" (

I did not hear from the artist after. There were sparse messages and journals about the refund process intermingled with musings about having no desire to work (, There was a refund queue on their Trello at one point, detailing everyone waiting for a refund, how much, and what order they were in line. This Trello list was eventually removed as well and instead replaced with a note about where he is at with refunds ( as of 9/19/2017). I sent a note asking about the status of my refund once more on September 6 2017 (, which he read and did not reply to (

I followed up almost 20 days later, a few days after this I received a response stating he was leaving for a trip and I should see a refund around the start of October (
