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.

That... is a lot of aliases, makes for a mile-long tag.

She's been at this since 2005 as far as I know when she was first known as Krimson katt and k454i. I know a few people who have had quite a few aliases to avoid their bad reputations but most of them give up after the first seven were rumbled.

Krimson katt just keeps going like some demented energiser bunny.

Here are all the names I know for her that I didn't see mentioned before.
Khaled, Teamonster, Canyon, Ziggy (not to be confused with the several, several other people named Ziggy out there!), b0h3m14, Pythonregius

If any of these are wrong btw, let me know, this is just an old list I found that looks about right to me.

I've heard of Khaled but not the others, dayum but the girl's been busy.

Whaaaaaat.
I've had issues with two of those other aliases, no wonder.

Really? Do tell.

I've had issues with about four of them, she's been nursing a grudge against me since 2005.

I butt heads with her most recent LJ regularly, Krimson Katt was always just batshit and paranoid and lashed out at people in unrelated comment threads, and K454i, oh god. Kasai. I had a huuuge dramasplosion with her on LJ and DA back around '05. She disagreed with something my friends and I did agree with, got really aggressive, was proven wrong, then got hysterical and "afraid for her safety" and deleted as much as she could before blocking a sound number of people. Yikes.

She also was a fan/wannabefriend of a good friend of mine. Said friend had a character, X, who had been around for several years. Kasai came up with another character, Sprinkles, the same breed, coloration, and clothing style as X. My friend didn't really have a huge problem with it and let it be. Then she showed us an old picture of X from several years before, when she was blue instead of green. Kasai showed up and jumped ALL OVER her, going on about how "X looks FAR too much like my Sprinkles for my personal comfort zone." Luckily, my friend is really really not into drama and just let the whole thing drop, but I've always been kind of bitter about the way she was treated.

I first became aware of her when her accounts Krimson Katt and k454i got banned on dA for her being batshit to someone, offhand I think it was because she was having one of those "u stold mai karacter" fits.

Both sound like classic k454i behaviour. It's sad because she must be a very lonely person with that mental health problem she apparently has, I hope she gets treatment for it soon.

Oh yeah, her catchphrase might as well have been "but that's MY character!"
There was a big kerfluffle on SL a few years ago, too, because an artist was selling mammalian bioluminescent dragon avatars with anglerfish face danglies and Kasai lost her mind. Even though Kasai got her anglerfish face thing from another artist.

I think maybe she's constantly so on edge because she really is alone irl and therefore internet communities are everything to her. Sad.

I missed that, but then there have been so many Kasai blow ups that I don't think anyone could track them all.

Maybe but there are other users onlin I know who are housebound so most of their interaction with people takes place online, they however don't pull Kasai's freakouts.

That would've been Synchra she spazzed at, I believe.

She also got mad at one of my friends because his character looked too much like her sparkleanglerfishthing. 8|

Wow. I had no idea Kurenai = Tealizard = Kasai until just now. *observant*

That explains a lot.

Gah, I'm gonna have a hard time keeping tealizard separate from teahound XP
Ironic that I didn't like tealizard and was a bit surprised to find out they were kurenai (found out much earlier, started to be a tad dubious of kurenai then)
