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!

All you need to do is provide evidence of said threats Kurenaipaladin, most IM programs keep logs (at least the ones I use *shrug*)

I'm sure your lawyer would say the same.

I know it's not helpful, but restraining orders don't work that way. If they did, my ex wouldn't be able to come near me or my family.

But that would require proof. That you have admitted you do not have. It's the same thing, really. Electronic, physical restraining order, they both have to have concrete proof.

Well, good luck in your attempt to have something done about him, then.

Just want to put in here that in order to have a restraining order placed on someone, you need to first prove they have harassed you, harmed you, etc, CHARGE THEM for it, WIN that court case. Then</i> you get to have your restraining order placed.

Can you tell neither my boy nor I want his mother in our life? ;)

(Also, I live in the same city as Kurenai, so I know this is accurate to her area.)

Oops. Haha. Failed html. :P

No, that was a real restraining order, after threats of violence with proof.

Ooh, I never get to use my lawyer icon!

I didn't even know you several years ago, lol. I met you late 2008, which you clearly had a computer at the time. I still have the chat logs to prove it too.

She said "computer that I was using at the time" not "I didn't even have a computer back then". She DID have one, just not the one she was using at that time.
