Finally, Finally, Finally
After four years, I finally got art from Starfinder. And to make it even a bit sweeter, she did TWO of my characters. Not a full colored badge, but cute cross-hatched bust drawings

http://www.furaffinity.net/full/4103955/

Sorry I don't have anything OLDER than this, she used a different AIM name before this.

On Nov 10 2009, she said I was on a "I actually have a tiny backlog of less than 5 folks"

On Nov 24 2009, she asked for a Moonbeam Ref

On Dec 30 2009, she asks for Moonbeam References, AGAIN

On June 09 2010, I warned her to look at A_B

On June 28, 2010: Note that I did have an "argument" with her again, and she said she would have something in my mail the next morning.

On July 3 2010, I get my art on FurAffinity (not in email)

canonphotowolf: hey
canonphotowolf: It's star! I didn't see you on your old SN, so I grabbed your new one off FA
canonphotowolf: FYI, the best way to reach me is AIM
canonphotowolf: so I'd appreciate it if you contact me that way rather than commenting on my FA :/
Diadexxus: I havent seen you on AIM in weeks....
canonphotowolf: I'm always on
canonphotowolf: I'm on nearly 24/7
Diadexxus: Hm, you must have been invisible, didnt see you until just now when you said hello.
canonphotowolf: Oddly I haven't seen your old dragoncharm SN in weeks
canonphotowolf: so...maybe there's an issue with that SN? I haven't seen you on in ages, but I'm always on. I'm not invisible, just away
Diadexxus: I used this one from home, I believe dragoncharm@mac.com is work name... Anyway, Mike bought a badge from you in 2006 and it was never given to me... I just want it taken care of, it could just be a bust pic, or whatever... but its only fair. I just want it off my list... http://diadexxus.livejournal.com/558602.html if you havent noticed my list is long..
Diadexxus: yorus is the longest. heh
canonphotowolf: I'm aware. I've just been bogged down with work. I have tons of debts to pay and if you haven't noticed, I'll be out on my ass and homeless soon
canonphotowolf: I'm trying to make ends meet first, especially since I need money to live :/
Diadexxus: That may be, but why wait 3 YEARS?
Diadexxus: thast why I am getting very upset
Diadexxus: c'mon, I Have known you since you were, what, 15 is when you made my first pic? heh
Diadexxus: I thought I have been pretty nice not to throw a fit in 3 years...just a reminder on my LJ every couple months
canonphotowolf: Well I'm sorry that it's taken so long, but posting all the time won't help speed things up. For now I need to do new work to save up. I'm behind on a credit card and facing overdraft in my bank. It's not easy
canonphotowolf: You haven't been forgotten about and when I can relax more and focus on my backlog you are at the top of the list
Diadexxus: yeah but the backlog for all I know could be a years worth
canonphotowolf: It's not
canonphotowolf: I actually have a tiny backlog of less than 5 folks, counting you
Diadexxus: then in good faith, email me dia@critter.net with when you are going to do and when roughly you think it should be done...
Diadexxus: please.
canonphotowolf: For now I can not estimate a time and risk falling short
canonphotowolf: I'm NOT in a stable position in my life right now
Diadexxus: then say "you havent been forgotten, there are 5 people ahead of you" blah blah... I just want something I can hold in m y email.
canonphotowolf: I have to sort my things first before I can make promises and deadlines
Diadexxus: just proof that we talked about it, thats what I mainly want... that you havent forgotten me
canonphotowolf: And does an AIM convo not suffice?
Diadexxus: it doesnt date it.
canonphotowolf: Well YOU know we talked, no?
canonphotowolf: I'm rather leery because I've had folks twist my arm before into saying something to appease them when I myself do not even HAVE an estimate of when things will be done
Diadexxus: I wont remember the date
canonphotowolf: Does it matter? We're talking and I have let you know that you're not forgotten and never were, however my life is not steady now and I can make no promises of dates or of when things will happen until I get back on my feet, and I have no clue when that will be sadly :/
* Diadexxus is extremely upset over this.. I hate being left with an empty bag
canonphotowolf: Well I'm extremely upset about my own situation right now as well and I do not want to make a promise I can't keep :/
canonphotowolf: That's understandable, no?
Diadexxus: I have seen you work in person, I am just shocked you cant do a quick bust or badge for Dia...
Diadexxus: or any of my other characters
canonphotowolf: I'll be homeless, I'm flying my pets 1200 miles away because I have nowhere to keep them, and I'm in CC debt and medical bills. It's not easy at the moment for me
Diadexxus: something that wouldnt even take probably 1/2 an hour of your time.... Mike paid 3 years ago.. just, gah.
canonphotowolf: Actually color badges take a good deal when they are not rushed and done outside of a con setting
canonphotowolf: I spend on average 2-4 hours on my badges when I work at home and am not rushed
canonphotowolf: Rest assured when I can I will get to yours.
canonphotowolf: I'm on AIM daily so you can easily prod me for updates
canonphotowolf: I can try to see when I can get it done, although I'm nto sure now, is it a bust sketch, or badge that you want?
Diadexxus: at this point, you choose.
canonphotowolf: It's up to you, since it wont' make a difference on my end really in terms of time and such. It's whatever you will be happiest with
Diadexxus: then make it a badge of Diadexxus .... shes pretty easily to know...
canonphotowolf: okay
Diadexxus: plus, shes only black and white. heh
canonphotowolf: hehe not that there's no color in that ;) White fur is a mix of a ton of hues due to shadows/ reflections/etc
canonphotowolf: That's the beauty in it
Diadexxus: i dont have Dia drawn by you, so it would be nice
canonphotowolf: Really? I could have sworn I had drawn her once before!
canonphotowolf: Maybe as an icon or something smaller?
Diadexxus: oh, Hm, (looks)
Diadexxus: Yep, you have.
canonphotowolf: I don't forget characters easily :)
Diadexxus: heeh no wings, just a white kitty head
canonphotowolf: She's pretty though
canonphotowolf: now that I've been doing more wildlife, I enjoy painting tigers and other felines
Diadexxus: spewing wings down her back, heh
canonphotowolf: Wings are fun, although a pain to draw/paint. Doing wildlife art, I'll be dealing with them a lot!
Diadexxus: Do you know Skadjer?
Diadexxus: (Link: http://us-p.vclart.net/vcl/Artists/Skadjer/Adult/gutentug.jpg)http://us-p.vclart.net/vcl/Artists/Skadjer/Adult/gutentug.jpg how HE knows how to do wings... AND dragons. *smirk* (VERY naughty)
Diadexxus: he is currently doing another piece for me.

Diadexxus: (Link: http://dia.critter.net/rsmb/rsmb.htm)http://dia.critter.net/rsmb/rsmb.htm hehe
canonphotowolf: My new badges are a little different in terms of style from my old ones..more refined..is that okay? It will be a slightly different style, but not a bad one
Diadexxus: hehe go for it
canonphotowolf: :)
canonphotowolf: gonna use it as an example for my new badge style which is nicer/more pricy than my old

canonphotowolf: you're on the backlog list
canonphotowolf: but I need to pay bills, don't I?
canonphotowolf: Or am I supposed to go broke, go to collections, and fuck up my credit?
canonphotowolf: not everyone has a secure job like you do. :/
canonphotowolf: some of us struggle and are in perpetual shit all the time
Diadexxus: Did you just delete (Link: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/1512327/)http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/1512327/ ?
canonphotowolf: to keep people from commenting further, since slots are filled. You're on the list though, so what does it matter? You'll have yours this week, as I have a plan to finish my backlog stuff.
Diadexxus: Where is this list posted?
canonphotowolf: What list?
Diadexxus: The list you say I am on!!!
canonphotowolf: it's not posted, it's in my own documents on my system. I don't post my lists
canonphotowolf: 'the list' means what I plan to get done today from my backlog
Diadexxus: why not so we know where we are on in Queue?
canonphotowolf: rather, this week
canonphotowolf: because the queue is fluid and I shift things around, re group, etc. When I put a list, people bitch if person D on the list gets done before person A (they assume the list is in order)
canonphotowolf: I've got you down though for a bust sketch of Dia
canonphotowolf: unless you wish to change that to some other character?
Diadexxus: at this point I will take anything
Diadexxus: do you have an ETA on when I can get this so I can take it OFF my plate after 4 years?
canonphotowolf: *sigh* well is that what you want, or no?
canonphotowolf: If you're going to get on my case this much, I'll cram it out sometime TONIGHT.
Diadexxus: I would appreciate it actually.
canonphotowolf: but just ease up on me. I lost one home and now we're facing eviction from the mobile home too
Diadexxus: you said months ago that you were going to whip something up but never gave me anything
canonphotowolf: I'm going to end up on the fucking STREETS. I take on commissions because I need to survive, pay bills, etc
canonphotowolf: as it is, we live like fucking rats in a box here and are facing the daily threat of losing said box.
canonphotowolf: you wouldn't know ANYTHING about how this is, and be fucking thankful for that. You don't want the life I lead
Diadexxus: well just throw something together worth the $30 that Igor paid you and we will be done, you will NEVER hear from me ever again, I promise you
Diadexxus: You are right, I dont want your life,. I like mine.
canonphotowolf: well then, cut me a break when you see me taking on work. I don't take it on because I love being told how to draw and what to draw, I take it on so I can live
Diadexxus: well you offered to do it tonight, I am taking that offer, please.
Diadexxus: then you will NEVER hear from me again, as I said.
canonphotowolf: the only reason I open up for new commissions is because I am in financial need. So you jumping down my throat about it bothers me, honestly
Diadexxus: You can do Dia, or any of my other characters... as I said, anything at this point would be nice.
Diadexxus: And it bothers me that you have made me wait 4 YEARS for a $30 commission.
Diadexxus: Do you think its fair? I sure dont. Just please,do something and I promise I will not talk to you anymore
canonphotowolf: and actually, shouldn't this be IGOR's issue, since he paid?
Diadexxus: No because he bought it FOR me
Diadexxus: and I never got it
Diadexxus: it was a present
canonphotowolf: but ultimately he was the one who paid, so really it's between me and him. But, regardless, I'll bump your sketch to sometime tonight (do note my 'tonight' means between now and 6AM)
Diadexxus: Fine, email it when done, dia@critter.net Thank you.
canonphotowolf: okay. I'll add some extra details to make it nice and, hopefully, more worth the wait
Diadexxus: I would appreciate it.
canonphotowolf: do you still have Sgt. Benton? I remember enjoying that character
Diadexxus: I do not have that character anymore
canonphotowolf: ah, who's your current lineup?
Diadexxus: (Link: http://dia.critter.net/)http://dia.critter.net/ plus this dragon (Link: http://diadexxus.livejournal.com/567660.html)http://diadexxus.livejournal.com/567660.html
Diadexxus: who has flying goggles and flight gear on
Diadexxus: I JUST got this awesome version of Moonbeam yesterday: (Link: http://pics.livejournal.com/diadexxus/pic/000f6kft)http://pics.livejournal.com/diadexxus/pic/000f6kft
canonphotowolf: Awesome, I'll pick through those. Moonbeam is definitely a favorite though
canonphotowolf: I may do more than one, if you feel that would make up for the wait?
Diadexxus: Moonbeam would be fine
Diadexxus: Yes, that would definitely make up for the wait .
canonphotowolf: :) then I'll pick a few favorites and do that
canonphotowolf: and I don;t want us to have animosity between us or anything
canonphotowolf: life's dealt me a ton of shit for the past few years and has been a downward slope, so I tend to be a bit testy, that's all
Diadexxus: Ok, I will forward to tomorrows email... dia@critter.net
Diadexxus: if it gives you grieve diadexxus@yahoo.com either works

I'm happy you got this resolved, but I admit, after reading the logs, it just made it even more clear to me personally that she shouldn't be taking commissions. I really hated the way she kept guilt-tripping you for just wanting your stuff. All of her problems she kept bringing up aren't your problems and it was extremely inappropriate of her to use them as a weapon against you, over and over and over again to try to force your silence.

I'm confused though. So you paid for colour work but only got sketches? I mean, it's better than nothing, but unless I'm misunderstanding (and I might be, feel free to correct me), you didn't actually get what you paid for?

Part of the problem with Starfinder is that she's ALWAYS 'overwhelmed and frazzled'. Always. For many many years now. She always has life problems that she's happy to use as an excuse against her commissioners while also using as an excuse to take more commissions from the very people she abuses on a regular basis. She doesn't want to get a permanent job but she doesn't want to do her commissions, either.

Also, the 'I only have a backlog of 5 people' is very much a lie. I know she owes more than that, so I guess she's decided to just write some people off forever.

Don't get me wrong. I'm glad when anyone manages to get anything from SF. I just hate this cycle and that it seems to be neverending.

That whole convo at the start,

"canonphotowolf: hey
canonphotowolf: It's star! I didn't see you on your old SN, so I grabbed your new one off FA
canonphotowolf: FYI, the best way to reach me is AIM
canonphotowolf: so I'd appreciate it if you contact me that way rather than commenting on my FA :/
Diadexxus: I havent seen you on AIM in weeks....
canonphotowolf: I'm always on
canonphotowolf: I'm on nearly 24/7
Diadexxus: Hm, you must have been invisible, didnt see you until just now when you said hello.
canonphotowolf: Oddly I haven't seen your old dragoncharm SN in weeks
canonphotowolf: so...maybe there's an issue with that SN? I haven't seen you on in ages, but I'm always on. I'm not invisible, just away"

That would put me off instantly from this person. It just has such a, "You're a liar, and it's YOUR fault that you can't contact me" vibe to it.


"canonphotowolf: you're on the backlog list
canonphotowolf: but I need to pay bills, don't I?
canonphotowolf: Or am I supposed to go broke, go to collections, and fuck up my credit?
canonphotowolf: not everyone has a secure job like you do. :/"

That is just extremely rude. It's not Diadexxus' fault that they have a job while Starfinder, apparently, cannot hold down a job to save their life. Maybe Starfinder should get a better attitude, as I'm sure employers do not look for bitterness in their employees. ...Except maybe in lawyers. I digress.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't taking commissions, you know, help pay the bills? Because last I checked, drawing something doesn't take money away from you. Hence the whole, "canonphotowolf: I'm going to end up on the fucking STREETS. I take on commissions because I need to survive, pay bills, etc".

Wouldn't drawing it and getting it over with be better than having someone demand a refund, which they should have every right to after four years? :/ This is a great example of not thinking ahead; and trying to worm their way out of doing the commission constantly while setting up a 'oh woe is me, don't ask for a refund, I can barely eat' trap is just in bad taste.


In my opinion, those two tiny sketches when you asked for full coloured badges are most definitely NOT worth the wait, but I guess after four years you just wanna lay it to rest.

I, for one, will make sure to not come in contact with this person in the future. Reading over these logs, there's a lot of Starfinder contradicting themselves, trying to get out of doing what they were paid to do, avoiding giving you any kind of evidence to 'twist their arm', on top of other things.

Yeah it was two sketches to make up for One colored badge (not two badges). I did agree to it. Basically after so long, I just wanted to get it done and off my plate so I could stop bitching ;)

I am glad you're satisfied, but good lord...

canonphotowolf: you wouldn't know ANYTHING about how this is, and be fucking thankful for that. You don't want the life I lead.

Because she totally knows your entire life story and can say with absolute certainty you've never struggled. And how dare you have a secure job! It's not like you actually work hard for the money or anything.

Ugh. Her attitude is appalling.

My personal favorite lines:

canonphotowolf: I'm going to end up on the fucking STREETS. I take on commissions because I need to survive, pay bills, etc
canonphotowolf: as it is, we live like fucking rats in a box here and are facing the daily threat of losing said box.
canonphotowolf: you wouldn't know ANYTHING about how this is, and be fucking thankful for that. You don't want the life I lead


Maybe if you'd just, I don't know, do the stuff you're paid for, then you could take more commissions and get more money, your reputation wouldn't be dragged through the mud, etc. Also, nice way to make it sound like you're the only one with problems.

Seriously, waiting that long for what you got? Is that even what you paid for? I mean, it's nice art, but it's not four years worth of nice. :/

"canonphotowolf: okay. I'll add some extra details to make it nice and, hopefully, more worth the wait"

Somehow, lost in translation, 'extra details' becomes 'giving you a quickly thrown together, complete opposite of what you've paid for all those years ago' piece.

Mostly because, such as in my case, we were not aware of her activities.

I'm a bit dissapointed, because I hadn't yet actually had a chance to read the things she's actually said. Being rediculously late is a bit of a problem, but I think most people would respond well to it if you just say "your icon will take 6 months- sorry, but I'm letting you know upfront." When art is good, alot of people are okay with that! No reason to lie or say things you can't live up to. Regardless of her personal situation, it is unprofessional to talk about personal funds or problems with a commissioner, particularly in any way that is meant to get pity or understanding. It would work so much better for her if she would just be more vague!

Or if she would just do the work as others have said. Then she wouldn't be in this mess. She's made her bed. She can sleep in it. :/

She's out on the street (almost), but still has the tablet, computer, internet ... priorities ...

I'm not defending her by any means, but I do know that if you make your living off of commissions like many artists do, things like your computer, tablet, printer, internet, they ARE the priority for you because they are what enable you to do your job and make your money. They seem extraneous to other people who don't use them solely for bringing in the money.

My great-aunt is a seamstress, has been for 40 years now, and she's given up her food allowance for the week to fix something on her sewing machine because it's her livelihood, how she pays the bills. Without it, she'd be penniless and eventually homeless.

So, not defending Starfinder in any way shape or form, just pointing out how those things can indeed be viable priorities for people.

Translation of the excuses she gave: "baaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwww, you don't understand how hard my life is".

I think Starfinder needs to learn something called responsibility, she isn't disabled or disadvantaged as far as I'm aware, she has the exact same opportunities as everyone else, she's simply not taking advantage of them, if her life is difficult it's probably because she does not make the effort to fix her problems.

As someone who does struggle with disability, both physical, mental and learning, as well as mental health problems? I find her attitude utterly repugnant. The world does not owe her living or indeed anything else, if she's not prepared to do work she's been paid to do then she shouldn't take money for it.

I honestly wish people would stop commissioning her, I think that honestly it is going to take something major like getting thrown out on the streets to get through to Starfinder that she needs to take responsibility for her life, not keep whining in hopes that somehow the world will suddenly fix things for her.

Pretty much this. I have both mental and physical disabilities, that never kept me from working full time while going to school, and taking commissions. It never kept me from being courteous to both my customers and commissioners either.

Beyond responsibility, Star needs to learn some freaking tact as well...

Just how many accounts does this person have? I understand having multiple accounts for something like SFW and NSFW art, or even gift art and such, but wow. Her accounts look the same to me.

I do not believe that those sketches were worth waiting four years for. Perhaps it is rude to compare, but I know of artists who could do much better, careful work in a matter of an hour of less. That said, from what I have seen of Starfinder, these sketches were pretty much on the low end of her capabilities. Her attitude was also horrendous, and it's a shame that someone able to do all the work that she does has an attitude like that. The OP let her off the hook, I think. How much patience you must have to wait four years for that.

There are awesome artists out there...
Yeah, but an awesome artist REALLY has made it up for my waiting and her (?) name is Celty. She has made the waiting so worth it by drawing this last week after reading my problems with Starfinder: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4068691

So frickin' awesome and "just because" nothing is cooler than that.

Holy Jesus... I seriously can't even believe what I'm reading here. How can someone be THAT rude to a commissioner. Especially after making them wait FOUR YEARS. It's taking everything in me not to make personal insults here, but I couldn't even BEGIN to express the amount of bullshit the constant "IM GONNA BE ON THE STREETS" is, especially considering where she lives and the frequent luxuries she buys for herself.

This chick gives Zeriara a good commissioning name. WHY do people still commission her!?

Seriously though, is there a reason you settled for much less than what you paid for? I won't lie, just from knowing her work those appear to be 5 minute "HERE TAKE IT LEAVE ME ALONE" photo copied dog sketches.

Yes.

1. it was my BF at the time who was technically out of the $30
2. I was really tired of waiting, and if I could get SOMETHING, it was better than nothing, and she offered to draw two characters for the one. I was OK with that.
