belialchan at Deviantart

While I rather not put this up, I think it is my last option at this point. On January 3rd I came to an agreement with belialchan on Deviantart to have a commission done for me. I paid the same day and heard from her on February 11th, which was the last line of communication. She mentioned that she finished the pencil sketch for my commission and would send me a picture to prove that it existed. Of course I never got it.

I've tried multiple times to get into contact with her, emailing her on the following dates: February 12th, March 24th, April 22nd, May 17th, and June 24th. When I hadn't gotten a response from her between the last two dates, I posted on her Deviantart page, seeing if anyone was in the same boat as I was. It just so happened a handful of them were; they hadn't heard from her in months, along with many who purchased a doujinshi she advertised on her Deviantart account in the beginning of March.

I grew wary, particularly when I noticed she updated her Livejournal account (which was linked through her Deviantart one) on May 20th, three days after I attempted to get a hold of her again.

Screencap Here

I know that belialchan had been under some duress (hence the reason she opened her commissions in the first place), however someone had contacted me, who wants to remain anonymous, and saw on one of belialchan's friend's journal that she was allegedly supposed to attend Japan Expo and run a booth. Apparently she didn't make it, but from what I understand, she was supposed to have made art for the convention.

I asked for my money back in my last email, and at this point I'm not very interested in my commissioned artwork. If any other screencaps are needed, I'll be sure to add more.

I see your comment left on her front page. And two otehrs who are waiting for their commissions too. Seems fishy....

What a shame...She has wonderful art :(

There's about eight of us that I know of, though one or two aren't that concerned from the lack of communication.

One mentioned hearing from her in March, while the other didn't really elaborate any further.

...last hearing from someone in March? o_O that's a long time ago....and still to be waiting, not to mention when this person actually commissioned said item....=\ Very unprofessional.

It's very infuriating; she doesn't seem to be trying to get into contact with any of us. I really don't know what to do at this point.
