Ragnar Wolfcoon (again)

I am for a second time post, I am experiencing issue with commissioner Ragnar Wolfcoon. I am sorry if this is rough for read, it is translation through system.

I had made first statement in regard to him earlier
http://community.livejournal.com/artists_beware/161842.html
A second post had been made by another user later, but i am unable to locate.

For summarize of previous issue, this is very demanding commissioner. He is undecide in what is wanting for the commission, make too many changes, and then upsets when it is not complete very quickly. He is send messages constant on FurAffinity system, or is stalking on Instant Messenger programs. There is several times which I have offer Refund in full for him (for I would not wish to work with him in the future or at any point), but on repeated times he had refuse this. At a point I had inform him of my time away from the internet, and upon return, found he had continue to message on a daily basis, accusing me of avoiding him.

In march I had offer a sketchbook auction with an internet site 'Furbuy'. To much of my dismay, he won this. I had warn him that if he was to pay for this, and continue with it as in the methods of previous experience, it would take very long for completion - possibly greater than a year. He had accept this, I inform him that I would not ask that he pay until previous commission had been complete, however, he sent payment immediate. Now I am stuck in legal bind contract as state on the site, so I am to work for him. Once again, he began shuffling of artwork and request, I ask for description for book (so that I may take it and work while Work) and he would not give it. He start asking about previous commission, or others unrelated to the book. Two months of negotiation, I am unable to get a firm description from him for any artwork. Everytime it is request, he discusses other project, or wants change made to some other finish work. I again offer this a refund, because it is same frusteration of having to keep up with this person repeated, and he decline.

Finally it is come time that I have to leave. I am without private access of internet for amount of time, inform this to him that there is not a possible way I can made some of his adult-theme requests uploaded. Had he been clear in his wants in the three months prior, significent progress had possibility of being made. He is very upset, finally gives a solid request, I had begun immediately, sending the sketch to him for approval, it is approve, so I finish. During my time away, i am kept in best possible communication with him, regardless of the difficulties in internet access. I am away for several months, and now upon return again, am informed his requests for REFUND IN FULL. He is feel that I have 'complete nothing' of his requests! I have done my greatest to stay up with this person, who has never been easy, and have complete the artwork that he had send me information on. He is upset that I am unable to complete the artwork that he never described?

At this point, the money he had provided is gone. I had made wait of it for as long as is possible, however, it has been several months. Because of so many delay, there is no chance of this sketchbook being finish soon, and now he is saying he does not have the money for it, and is needing of everything returned. I am at loss for what there is to do. He is wanting 'legal action', but I do not know what the extrent is of that possible. I am extremely angry with this, and am honest hoping that there is not reason for me to have to deal with another.

He sent me many notes and stuff when i was with him, he is demanding and he is the most difficult client I have ever had. Heres how my experience was with him:
He contacted me through FA note, saying he heard about me from a previous client who happens to be his friend. He asked me to draw him wolves eating kids, i said i suck at kids so he changed it to pigs. I said, thats okay. He wanted 3 pictures or..was it 4? anyway, i said okay and i showed him the first sketches. He was happy with them.

I completed the first 2 drawings after 2 weeks or so (i was very busy with a school project). I asked from him to see if they are okay and for him to pay me when he is ready, after 1-2 weeks he never replied. I demanded he pay me at least 20 dollars for the 2 drawings or id black list him.

Then awhile later (1-2 weeks) he shows up asking how the drawings are on msn. I said im too busy with school work and life and i cant continue the series, he gets angry and starts saying im like the other artists who quit and cant ever get the job done. I start to feel bad about myself....and i apologize to him and accept on continuing. He also tells me he was inactive as he was busy with con, internet going down and net cuttin off.

After constant events of him disappearing in periods of up to a week to 2-3 commissions the series is going through slowly and he asked for additional pictures and constant changes.

After many weeks (it took 15 weeks or so to complete 7 pic series) the commissions where done but i asked for a large sum of money as each picture was done in my painty style and had 5-10 chars in each one....but stupidly i made a mistake and said in a note many weeks ago additional pics would be 20 dollars. So he paid me the money 150 dollars for 7 pictures, 10 of that being a gift badge and gift painting. I also made him a gift full body badge as a way to say sorry for trying to suck money out of him.

Let me just say, this client was the most difficult one I ever had, and im glad the commissions are finally done. But his intentions are good and he normally pays well (background from peeps tells me he is a pharmacist and gets good pay)


Goodluck with what ever happens.
