Commissioner Ryo

So I had some old commissioner popped out from nowhere on my MSN today (only MSN nickname and email odioaloschibis [at] hotmail.com available). He/she asked about a commission two months ago.



The conversation two months ago

***

Ryo [What is Justice? It's the path I've chosen for myself] said:
hello

Ryo [What is Justice? It's the path I've chosen for myself] said:
I'm here to talk of comissions lol

ME said:
good evening
i'm listening

Ryo [What is Justice? It's the path I've chosen for myself] said:
one sec, I'm a bit busy hehe, just said that cause yoi said you tedn to ignore people XD

***

That was all. No responses from him/her anymore.

And today I was accused of letting him/her wait two months and refusing to accept his/her commission now.

***

ME says (2:26):
look. if you had asked me or requested a slot, I would have received a proper info from you. you told me you were busy. that's all

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:26):
no sir/lady you said like today

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:26):
you were busy

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:26):
and try coming other time

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:26):
I did, and now I'm said that you offered slots in a website?

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:26):
bye

ME says (2:26):
today is today

ME says (2:26):
it's a different story

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:27):
yeah and tomorrow is the time I'd never comission you

ME says (2:27):
uhm..

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:27):
that's so fun, making people wait 2 months, and then today is today

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:27):
really nice

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:27):
bye, for 3rd time

ME says (2:28):
okay. be like that if you wish. I don't know whom you sent messages regarding the commission info to, but it certainly weren't me

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:28):
yeah sure

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:28):
sorry for all, good bye

ME says (2:29):
have a nice night

Ryo [The ones with power shall fear me, The ones without power shall join me!] says (2:29):
you too

I don't even know how to react. Yes, I was able to accept his-her commission at that time, but not now when I have a double-programm at the university. But why treating me so?

Off-topic, but man those long IM-titles annoy me.
So pretentious and spammy...

On-topic, I think you dodged a bullet.
He can barely understand or communicate in comprehensible English and probably got you mixed up with someone else if he's not just outright mistaken. Either way, he would have no doubt continued like this throughout the entire commission, meaning it'd have taken an unreasonable amount of time, effort and aggravation just to make him happy.

Just block him, not worth your time.

I'm always "lucky" for getting to deal with commissioners like that. Believe me, it's not even the worst case (considering the grammar, syntax and communication skills)

Seconded. Block. When they ain't making sense and are saying you promised things you didn't, done.

Man echoing Thaily on the 'dodged a bullet' part. I can only imagine how difficult it'd be to actually do any commission seriously with them, if they'd be this vague when it came to any sketch approvals etc.

On the good part - I closed digital and furry commissions (this guy was the last drop) so I'll have more time to practise with traditional media.

Yeah I saw your post about that on DA. Good luck with that and all, can't wait to see what you'll do ^-^

Thanks.
As soon as I finish the last commission, I'm going to make some watercolour pictures, especially for an exhibition which has been promised to me.

yeah, I'd have to agree with thaily XD

working with that guy would have probably been a bad experience.

Not sure if this is the same person, but I'm currently working with someone of the same name. My commissioner is from Japan, which would explain the semi-poor use of english. So far he has been pleasant and easy to deal with.

Japanese people aren't that impulsive and rude as that commissioner. It just doesn't fit together.
