Beware of RainbowJokerHound / Dog-Bone

Edit of an Edit! She sent me.. $10.. when.. I paid her $6. :/ I'm sending $4 back, I don't need extra money, and I refuse to take it.
Edit: She sent me this very lovely note: http://i52.tinypic.com/14tuf7n.jpg
Now this lovely LiveJournal entry: http://pics.livejournal.com/lackoflollies/pic/00003pcw
My first REAL post, bear with me. Yes, I am AuroraBorealia.
WHO:
RainbowJokerHound / Dog-Bone

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/rainbowjokerhound/
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/dog-bone


WHAT: 2 $3 icons when she was having some kind of offer, journal is here: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2120709/
It has been capped in case she deletes or modifies it.

WHEN: It had been a month or two before I noticed trouble. I asked for updates, first she said her desktop computer or laptop was not working and she was unable to do digital art, but she had been submitting digital works while stating that. So, again I asked for updates after I presumed it was fixed, and she got VERY rude with me, stating I had to wait my turn just like everybody else. As of then, she has been continually submitting things digitally, and ignoring me when I asked for updates. NOW she's saying I never paid her.
http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2417369/
Edit: She saw my paypal screenshot and apologized for saying that, so that's situated. Everything else, however is still valid.
This journal she says she owes me two icons, and my unanswered comment about updates.

PROOF: http://i54.tinypic.com/r0v3o1.png Paypal transaction proving I sent the money for this.
http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2120709/ Journal

EXPLAIN: I commissioned her in February because I had wanted some new icons, and noticed she was open. So I sent off my details via PM, and sent her the $6. I wanted for a month noticed she had completed every one else before me. I aske dher how my icons were coming once, and she said she was anable to do digital work because her computer was broken and she lost the files, I said alright and went on my merry way, I figured things would look up. A month or so later, maybe more, I notice she started submitting again, and when I asked for an update I got a nasty PM stating I needed to wait my turn just like every one else. Once I find the screenshot of this I will add it into the post.

It is now July, and i've flat out asked for my money back. However, she is now stating I never paid her, which in the above screenshot, and based on the paypal in her journal, I totally did. This is the first time i've ever had issues with an artist, so I waited WAY too long to file a dispute, let alone properly save and record messages pertaining to this due to being a victim of FA leaks, I delete my PMs regularly, so i'm desperately searching for proof i DID get to add to this post.

So, this is just a little beware to avoid this artist.
Artist's beware has moved!

From now on, take anything commission-related straight to emails. Furaffinity is both too cluttered note-wise and too unreliable/unstable to rely on for things you pay money for. With email, you can slap on labels and keep everything easy to find just for stuff like this.

Second, I'm looking to do some example icons, how about you send me some refs?

She is very immature. Some time ago I paid her $40 for a set of couples badges... It took me over a year to get them, and I only got one badge at that point and had given up. I would have posted her to here, but I've lost access to the email account the emails were on so I saw it as pointless.

I could pull up some of the notes though if needed.

she said she'd get them done when she 'got home'. At first, I said I wanted them in a week, but she's not even read my note yet, so I said screw it and told I flat out want my money back, and she doesn't deserve a week long extension when I wanted five months. It's rude, but at this point i've lost all patience with her. It's just $6, so she should have no problems.

I've known her for a tad bit and I've seen how she is with commissions. She takes on so much then doesn't hardly deliver. I think maybe she gets bored with it and she takes on more then completes the ones she newly gotten then works on personal pieces. DIGITAL personal pieces. I'm not sure if she DOES have a computer or not, but a digital pieces is a digital pieces and it's not hard to work on a few commission than gift pieces and new commissions when there is a crap ton of others to be done.

Six dollars I earned, not her. Don't degrade it just by amount alone. a DOLLAR is worth a post, because I wasn't given what I paid for, therefor, because of this, and what new information is coming in based on comments by people who know her, this beware is very warranted, where you comment, is not.

Have a good night. :3

5 months for icons is just ridiculous. Even the highest-quality icons (unless...MAYBE...if they are completely hand-drawn animation...and even then...) should not take that long.

You're getting your money back. She is not stealing money. She showed me her list.

You and everyone makes this sound much bigger than it realy is. She is taking on commissions but she is not swamped as your making it sound. She is in school, taking care of animals and even trying to get a job.

Alot of her drawings and works have been on a computer that broke. There are some things she must make again.

The drawings she does with me (her boyfriend) are not very time consuming and drawn in front of me on paper while we are together during the short time we have to spend together on weekends.

And also during the time of when you had made the commission, she was trying to sneak in commission hiding them from her ex-boyfriend as she was not allowed to draw because he said so.

This is all changing. I am encouraging her to draw, and encouraging her to draw as often as she can. This part is really none of your business tough. But I am writing this to also talk to everyone reading your journal....

People, you are making her to be a thief. We all have something call 'a life' and there are things that do occur that turn into situations that are beyond our control. Everybody goes through this. And right now with me, she is drawing alot more, being more productive, and more creative than ever before. Just look at her art. If you are paying attention, she is drawing things in all themes now because I am encouraging her to do so. If anything you should be thanking me for her to get back into her grove.

She is becoming very happy and very productive.

Please do not attempt to destoy that spirit.

And like I said... you are getting you money back. Tere is no worry for that.

You're not really helping here.
>you are making her to be a thief.<
Or she is acting like one? I understand that she is your girlfriend, but not updating customers, keeping their money and not delivering products are all signs of a scammer rather than a reputable artist. And the amount of time taken to make icons of all things? Ridiculous.

Her problems are no one's problem but her's. Guilt tripping a customer (she had a mean ex, her computer broke, she's in school, she has a pet) makes both of you look bad. Maybe if she had too much of a workload or relationship problems she shouldn't have taken on a job that requires deadlines. But that's not the OP's problem in the slightest.

To put this all in perspective, if she worked at any other job such as retail or fast food and her boss found out that she was taking orders but pocketing the cash and never following through to get the product to the customer would she be fired? Or would they accept a sob story about having to take care of her pets from her boyfriend and let it slide?

oh and by the way . i never realy said you didnt pay.. my journal said you didnt and i was unsure but you sent me the proof and i said in the note you have up that i was sorry and it was my fault ...so stop saying that i said you didnt pay ..

and the art that i was posting while i said my tablet was broken was art that was already done and just needed to be posted ..

and when you say " heres a lovley what ever she sent me " you make it seem like its so bad that i apologized for making a mistake about the paymen and for posting a journal explaining what went wrong..lol
i have so much other proof of all that being true but i wont waste my time on it anymore

Yes, you corrected it, i'll edit that in the journal, but rather then relying on your outdated FA journals, ask people for their e-mails and check your records (and get your OWN paypal) before assuming they didn't pay you, it'll do you a lot better.

Your note was VERY rude. Telling me more people have been patient? Good for them, my patience has worn out with you, and that's my right. Trying to tell me because others waited and trying to make me feel bad for posting this? Nuh uh.
Your journal saying 'what went wrong' is nothing but excuses. NONE of that is -MY- fault, NOR my problem. You're also making this ONE little entry about you seem like the end of the world (Protip: It's not) If people don't commission you as a result of seeing this, it's no one's fault but your own, not mine. Quit trying to quilt me and make me feel bad for you by continually repeating things that aren't my fault, nor my problem.

Also, lose the passive aggressive responses, it will make people take you more seriously.

When it comes to these posts, nine times out of ten, the only reason I ever end up remembering the name of the person the beware is about is because they come in and cop an attitude. The 'I have a life excuse' is one of the clearest signs of the weird entitled attitude some people have when they take commissions; that because they're working for furries and drawing silly animals, it's okay to leave commissioners waiting in the dark for indefinite amounts of time. After all, you know you'll get to it eventually, so they should too even if they don't know you, right?

That's just not how the real world works. Artists need to all understand that commissioners have no way of being in your brain and knowing that you intend to do what you've been paid to do. Most artists are fine, but there ARE artists out there (STARFINDERRrrrr) who will take your money and, five years later, still be feeding you excuses. How are strangers supposed to know if you'll be the same way? It is your job to reassure them otherwise.

Instead, it's always the same song and dance. Person comes into post about them, cops an attitude, throws guilt trips around everywhere, and says everything as passive-aggressively as possible. It is high school level garbage and is definitely not the kind of person I would want to give my money to. And that is what makes me remember them, not the original beware (if there aren't constant posts on them and they're not particularly horrific, of course).

If you can't treat your customers with respect, you aren't mature enough to be taking commissions. The end.

PS. Stop expecting customers to care about your problems. You don't care about the life of every Walmart cashier you come across any more than customers should be expected to care about yours. If they ask for explanations, give them, otherwise keep your personal crap to yourself and politely inform them if there needs to be a delay and how long it will be.
