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've been informed you've since been paid in full but haven't updated the post to reflect such. Do you think you could do so?

Actually, I haven't been paid in full, she only gave me a fraction of the total difference between the arts she's produced and what was actually paid for. I paid $450 for 10 sketches, and $450 to have those 10 sketches inked. She produced 3 sketches and refunded $400. But I'll definitely update my post to reflect as such.

They are permabanned from AB, so they can't come here to discuss the matter, but they have contacted me and here is what he has to say.

First, he is FtM and would appreciate the appropriate male pronoun.

Second, here is what they say in regards to your claim about not being paid in full:

Hi again Kayla, I checked the comments and he's claiming I never paid him back in full. The first time he claimed that back in august was correct, because of an incorrect assumtion on my part.

However, we agreed on 125, because that is what he wanted- that was the leftover refund from what I paid him, considering he had more than three sketches (many inked, that were sent to him, and not saved by him, that were later thrown out because hey, im not keeping art that is upsetting emotionally to me for several years).


Was there a misunderstanding? I'd love things to be cleared up between you two, here.

In actuality, it would appear she's providing you with false information. I have full documentation of her paypal records with me showing she's only refunded a total of $400. Furthermore, I have yet to receive any product from her barring the first three sketches. If she did indeed send me the images she claims, then she should have some sort of document in her outbox stating as such, regardless if she is still in possession of the tangible copies or not.

He sent me some emails where it looks like you did agree to receive $125 dollars to put an end to things. Mind you, I'm just a middleman here so I can only go by what is given to me. He has also decided to step away from the situation to avoid the stress.

I just want to make sure there aren't any misunderstandings and that credit is given where it's due.

You're correct, she sent me $125. I was mistaken with the original amount that she had refunded me. She produced $300 CAD at the time of the incident, which equates to $275 USD. Totaling in $125, that's still only $400 refunded.

I corrected the 4th edit on the main entry to reflect this

Can I ask what you would consider needed to be done for this to be considered a resolved incident? This is an older post and things have probably been forgotten by now.

Strictly on a business level, I would appreciate it if she was able to send the arts she claims to have produced, or to simply refund the total remaining difference between what's been paid and what's been produced.

What's the remaining difference?

Currently I'm in possession of 3 sketches. Each sketch was valued $45, so that brings the total value of what she's produced up to $135. She's already refunded me $400. That brings the remaining difference down to $365
