This isnt really a "beware" as such because I had not yet paid for a commission. I am just wondering if anybody has heard from Starfinder/Kannos recently as she said she would do a commission for me within the week, and that was over a month ago. I havent heard a word since. Even though no money has been paid it's still bad business practice and I'm a little annoyed that I've just been completely ignored now after sending numerous emails and getting excited about the commission. So can anybody tell me if she's still even around or if she's dropped off the planet?

This. Just, uh. Familiarize yourself with her tags here.

Please keep in mind that if you commission her you are very, VERY likely to lose your money. She has a history of not doing commissions and has generally proven to be a very bad person to commission.

I can't tell you NOT to commission her, but I can certainly strongly imply it would be wise to leave it.

Honestly, you'd probably be better off not dealing with her. Her track record is abysmal.

What everyone else has said. You're lucky she disappeared before you paid her...usually she seems to disappear after she's received payment.

Whether she's intentionally trying to scam people or she's just incapable of being professional, she has a long history (as in she's been doing thisofr many years) of not delivering on commissions. I can't fathom why people are still taking the risk and commissioning her anyway. I'd recommend checking out the tags in this community in case you aren't familiar with her history.

I think you've dodged a bullet, friend.

I hope this doesn't come across as rude, but seeing as you're clearly aware of AB... do you know her history? How often she scams her customers? I'm not really sure why you would want to commission her, due to her sketchy (at best) work history.

They might have just heard of A_B from a friend and joined recently.

Even if it's a "pay upon completion" type commission (which she once said was all she would do from then on out, then turned around and started taking pre-payment), she has a history of not getting things to people, even when their finished. I think she owes/owed someone prints, and just had to mail them an... her oh-so-dramatic life interfered.

I think she's done you a favor.

Just agreeing with everyone here. You got lucky that she lost contact. Do NOT give her your business. You have about a 50% chance or more of losing your money if you do.

WOW she's still at it? o_O I'm amazed she hasn't been banned perminately from art communities yet.

Its unfortunate you got hyped about the commission, but really she did you a big favor by dropping off the face of the earth BEFORE you gave her a hot red cent. If you browse her entry tag in this comm, you'll see more complaints regarding her turn overs... or lack thereof!

Short answer: Don't.

Frankly, I'm not surprised that she has disappeared based on some of her journals (there are people commenting about her not responding to them for weeks.)
