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!

This totally sounds like 'Hey I stole all this money from you, here let me make another empty promise to fulfill it so I can rip you off twice!'

I like how she failed to include her past screen names for the people who she scammed that hasn't seen this LJ post. I'm sure there's a few.

What strikes me is this: what kind of terrible artist lets commissions for several hundred dollars just 'fall through the cracks'. You'd think with that much money in play she'd have some sort of work ethic, eh?

In that regard, it's a bit ironic that she tried to bribe me to take down my posts about her.


Which is when I replied with the second comment in this thread.

I'm fairly certain that the moment Kayla_la sees that, any weaseling she's tried to do to persuade her to remove this entry will go right out the window. What a crazy little punk. Definitely add this screen shot to the OP.

I never intended to remove the post unless it was proven to me that the bulk of it were lies.

I am VERY AGAINST deleting things in general. I HATE it when people delete posts or comments. Haaaaaaaate. Hate. There are very, very few circumstances where I would do so or be okay with a user of AB doing so.

Point being, don't worry about me deleting things. There has to be a damned good reason for it. I hate it when people cover things up, give into blackmail (delete the post about me or you won't get your art/refund! etc), or anything of the sort. It feels like a slap in the face to the community as a whole.
