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!

Not to start a shit storm, but why do you feel physically threatened by the individual? Are you two in the same town? State? Does he have access to where you live?

K, that'll teach me to DEF F5 before commenting.

I would like to know the claims, however. As far as we can all tell, it's a "he said, she said" case and well, Kora is the only one who's provided concise evidence in this.

As much as I would like to be on kurenaipaladin's side, the fact that the other party has screencaps and she doesn't makes it a little hard to believe her claims.

I am sure she is a good artist to commissions and this might be a one time deal, but that is still a lot of money owed.

The comment deletion has begun, but I can't remember which user did it. This is... quickly turning into a mess and I have a feeling there is a LOT going on in the background that no one here is being made privy to.

And I dislike that intently. This issue has been brought up, I want to know what the HELL is going on as I was previously thinking about commissioning kurenaipaladin. I still may, it just depends on how things go here.

Kora apparently is the one deleting comments, not Kurenai, and I have asked them to stop.

Truth, I admit to the deletion of the comment. My apologies, I'm not 100% fluent with the workings of AB.

The comment that was deleted above my reply was kurenaipaladin claiming to have been threatened again.
Man, I hope someone is screen-capping this for furry_drama2. *popcorn.gif*

I tried to go to the furry_drama2 link and I got Frank the Skeery Goat with a "this journal is not currently registered" message. ?

Oh, my bad! It's actually furrydrama_2.
Aug. 8th, 2010 08:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It's okay, I screw up HTML all the time, so most of the time I don't even bother.
