Who: Shiroiyuki 

Where: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/shiroiyuki/

What: A full colored commission 

When: Going on for close to a year now

Explain: Well in October I was recommended by a friend to check out her art which I did and I brought a commission from her at the time because she was open and had reasonable prices. So she posted a journal (which she deleted) saying she was giving a special on pics for $25. this my transaction  http://imageshack.us/f/838/incidentone.jpg/

pg/) this is what i asked for http://imageshack.us/f/826/incident2.jpg/. So I brought a spot. She posted a journal right afterwards saying she was depressed and having an art block. I decided to wait because people have that problem. this was posted afterwards  http://imageshack.us/f/252/incident3.jpg/

In November I got tired of waiting and looked at her Commission Queue to my surprise my name wasn't there for a commission so I contacted her which went well and reasonable. So after a few days (again...) a new journal was posted saying she was taking new art and such. So then of course another journal posted about an art block. Later that week other people art was posted and still my name wasn't added to the queue. So I was fed up with it and filed a refund because I was tired of waiting and being ignored. So of course instead a well way to settle stuff in a mature manner I got a rage note saying "No I'm not refunding you your money its not my problem this was well hard earn money so don't give me the BS''. She made threats to me as well saying she was going to sue me.shown here  http://imageshack.us/f/545/incident5.jpg/ . Let me point out that I got no update on my art so I went to my bank who is set up with paypal and filed a dispute for my money back because I felt scammed and the fact my bank had a flag with her info . She later posted a journal calling me a rude uncalled for name and deleting it due to her getting raged at for speaking to her clients that way. Later along in the year she is posting pictures of stuff she buying and then writing journals later asking for money. This new year she has decided to start on people art but still has an attitude issue where is uses very rude language in her terms and commission queues. shown here (hhttp://imageshack.us/f/850/incident4.jpg/

Recently she has went MIA from her account with more people money she begged for a tablet and she has left her account without doing people art. shown here http://imageshack.us/f/600/scammerza.jpg/

She recently returned with pics of tattoos she has gotten along with a journal full of rage against those who were very unhappy with her taking too long and felt she used the commission money she owe to get the tattoos http://imageshack.us/f/268/rudeness.jpg/

This issue has been resolve. She has refunded my money so no need to comment here anymore.

Am I the only one who finds it rather suspicious she 'cleans' her Shout page weekly?
Feb. 17th, 2012 01:24 am (UTC)
I clean my shout page obsessively 8x

I don't understand how her money is "hard earned" if she hasn't even started the work yet.
Feb. 11th, 2012 10:50 pm (UTC)
That is exactly what I was thinking when I was reading this entry.

It kind of gave me a headache reading her posts...especially that last journal. Her attitude comes off like her commissioners are all rich and tossing money around, and so don't deserve to be treated with respect. Like she's doing them a favour somehow, by taking the money and giving them nothing.

We all go through rough times, nobody has a perfect life. That doesn't excuse her taking people's money and treating them like that.

Buh -_- Beware well warranted.
Feb. 11th, 2012 09:44 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry you had to go through this, this is exactly why i took her off my watchlist a few months back. Her attitude over everything, especially paying customers was appauling, and I just couldn't help but feel for those who kindheartedly helped her out when her "times were rough".

Beware very well warranted. I'm surprised no-one has spoken out sooner though.
Feb. 12th, 2012 05:57 am (UTC)
really? She's been spamming my fa shouts pretty much begging me to commission her.. Think i'll stay wary of her. I've ran into her in a few streams but thought it was just a fluke thing but hearing you say her attitude is also bad makes it clear I'll be avoiding commissioning her for work. Thanks.

She displays the attitude of someone who hasn't worked a day in their lives. What terrible work ethic, the way she treats people who have paid for her to draw for them.
Feb. 11th, 2012 09:57 pm (UTC)
I can't read any of your screenshots and Imageshack won't let me zoom in for some reason. Can you direct link to the images?

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out. Noscript giving me lip.

Holy bezeejus her attitude is awful. She acts like a total child. Beware well deserved, she needs to grow up.

Beware well-warranted. Never going to commission her.

I read her TOS... Honestly, based on the wording of that alone I would never give her my money. This beware is so well warranted that it almost isn't needed. Yikes.
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:14 am (UTC)
I went to take a look for myself and yeesh. Unprofessional ahoy!

Especially this bit:
I will not give refunds. All money goes towards bills and other living expenses that are important to me. Unless you are in a financial emergency, you will not receive a refund from me. If you do have a financial emergency, I will try to refund you by replacing your slot. But there are still no guarantees. So please, DO NOT ask me for refunds, EVER. unless you truly need it I take a while to do my work, longer then other artists but I ALWAYS provide work, ask that for people that have commissioned me in the past.

Would you like a refund? All you had to do was ask. ^^; Give me your paypal and I'll send you one.
Feb. 11th, 2012 11:27 pm (UTC)

I'm not excusing the artist's behavior and this may be very minor, but you commissioned her in october 2011? It's now february, which is 5 months time delay, not "close to a year now".
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:27 am (UTC)
She's changing her TOS as we speak, so perhaps this was a good lesson? Please let us know of any updates, OP!
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:46 am (UTC)
I hope so. It's very...aggressive.
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:51 am (UTC)
sweet mother of god, i'd not touch that artist with a 10 ft pole
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:59 am (UTC)
Wow... that attitude is sickening. *shakes head*

What bothers me the most is the way the artist is blaming their commissioners for wanting a refund when their art isn't delivered. It is not their hard earned money, it's the commissioner's. What they want to spend it on is their own damn business. I've never seen an artist feel so entitled to a commissioner's money when they aren't doing the work. The artist's financial situation is not their customer's business, let alone their responsibility!

I am glad that the artist seems receptive to change, but this beware is very valid, and I certainly wouldn't commission them for a very long time!
Feb. 12th, 2012 01:05 am (UTC)
Wow, what disgusting behavior.
Never touching this artist--not with a 20 foot poll.

I'm so sorry you had to go through this, OP.

That's truly unfortunate, and very disrespectful. I truly hope they do learn from this and try to better themselves. Very bad attitude, especially the 'hard earned' bit. :\
