My first post (regrettably)

I always hoped I didn't have to meet one of those commissioners that shows up on here.. I guess it's inevitable.

This is a general warning about a guy who goes by the name of "Pup", a dalmatian. All I know of his RL name is Dave. He emailed me a while ago asking for a commission, and once I completed a sketch, I sent it to him.

After a few months and no reply, I resent it. I wanted to get him off my commission list. He finally responded and asked me to change some things, which I did, and then completed the final picture.

I sent it to him yesterday and this was his reply:

Right now I think it would be best for me to just pay you for the sketch that you did. I honestly don't like how it turned out, but that is by no means any fault of your own and I would like to pay you for the work that you already did. How much would be acceptable for the sketch that you have completed on it. Just let me know and I will have that amount transferred into your account by the end of the weekend. Thank you for you time and patience


If he didn't like it, why didn't he say so? And if he doesn't like my style, why did he commission me in the first place?

This was by far one of my most complicated commissions to get right and I am -not- happy. This just sets my resolve to get payment in full before ever starting a commission. >.< This was a fully inked and coloured commission, and he only wants to pay me for the trouble of sketching it.

Just... beware of this guy. Make sure he likes your style first, and pays upfront.

That is all.
