Beware of DiceLion on Furaffinity

 Greetings everyone

It's been brought to my attention that the user DiceLion of FurAffinity ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/dicelion ) is the same artist who previously went by the names of Svetlana, Achondrite, and CanyonVoredU. This had been confirmed by a few members of the FurAffinity community, as well as there being circumstantial evidence such as the same art style, same interests, same dislikes, age, and location. The previous track record of this artist is nothing short of having been commissioned a project that's usually valued over $200, then disappears shortly afterwards without fully delivering on the paid art. This has happened to a number of people already over the past few years, myself included. This user's new account has only been active since April, and she is already exhibiting the same behaviors as her previous accounts prior to being uprooted by way of advertising large sums of art for a high price, which she is asking to be paid up front for.

By no means am I suggesting to not commission this artist. If you do, that's your own business and no one else's. But, if you do happen to commission this artist, I encourage you to practice caution.

Thank you for your time.

Edit - Due to the fact that the accused is stating I had threatened physical harm towards her nearing the end of our dealings, I dug up the chat logs I had posted about the very same individual from my previous entry about her.

Here's the full and complete chat log prior to DiceLion ceasing all forms of communication with me.

Edit 2 - A user, who wishes to remain anonymous, just confronted me in regards to this whole issue. He does not wish to have his name disclosed, but I wanted to make this public in regards to Achondrite as well.


Edit 3 - Upon suggestion of the community, I would like to specifically point out this thread and the evidence I had posted in it to disprove any claims from the accused.


Edit 4 - In regards to my own dealings with her, I paid $450 USD for 10 sketches, and $450 USD to have those 10 sketches inked. She produced 3 sketches and refunded $300 CAD ( $275 USD ) at the time of the incident, and $125 USD after I posted this journal more than 2 years later. She has yet to refund me the additional $365 USD to make up for the total difference of what's been paid and what's been produced.

Artist's beware has moved!

I've heard from a lot of people that this person ripped people off. Lightningfire and Kayeer on FA spring to mind.

Would it be too much trouble to ask these people to come here and comment on this to be sure?

I didn't speak on behalf of them. I said I had read about it on FA. That's all.

I don't have links to it. It's not like you save stuff like that. O_o

No, it's not "think I heard". I read about it. I am not "thinking" I read about it. Just because I cannot be bothered and do not have time to go back playing internet detective and find links doesn't make what I say any less relevent.

I can understand you're upset but that doesn't reduce the validity of my post. I have heard people complain about your practices. I am sure they will come and make their voices heard if they hear about this post, or someone else can go and find their complaints, I'm sure someone will have the inclination.

Look, I'm not in the mood to argue with you, but let me make this clear.

Not having links =/= uncertain I read it. It's kinda annoying that you are accusing that.

I'd see your point if I were actually talking about the story, or any amounts involved, any specific details. But I think it's perfectly relevent to say that I have read about you. I may not know the whole story, but you're definitely not just being targetted by the OP, that much is clear.

I think that's relevent information to the reader. So, yeah. Deal with it, I guess?

Do you have proof of these threats? If so you might want to post that. Otherwise his word is as good as yours. Not to be mean but I'm sure you see what I'm saying.

Agreed, honestly. =/ It's a pretty serious accusation to throw out there about anyone.
