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.

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.

It was featured on one of the many fandom snark or warning communities, might have been art_theft? It was so long ago that I can't say for sure.

True, but there just has to be some external reason for the way she is. There just has to be. No one is that crazy without some sort of reason... right?

Don't think it was on art_theft, if it had, I'd have heard about it. Perhaps one of the long deleted original furry drama comms?

Not necessarily, I used to work with a guy who thought he was jesus, the human mind when it goes wrong can convince people of some pretty weird stuff, alternatively she's a spoilt extremely sheltered brat and is just incapable of coping with real people to the point where whenever they do something that is outside of her expectations she freaks out.

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

Yeah, it was. I'm just trying to leave other names out of this.

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