Before I begin, may I note that this is not a report of 'wrongdoing' per say. This user commissioned me a good deal of time ago and never approved the sketch. He's paid and I want to either give him a partial refund for not being able to contact him, or actually get approval to finish the art. I've messaged him repeatedly and I don't know if they are getting the messages and I do not want him to either forget he's commissioned me or feel as if I didn't do the work I promised. I feel I should have posted to AB sooner, but I wanted to give it time. Here's hoping someone can help me find them!


WHO: Username: Hajinn @FA

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/hajinn/

WHAT: Digital commission of a full color of this character. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7818460/

WHEN: April 19th 2012
PROOF: http://i49.tinypic.com/2vsg1f8.jpg  All the note exchanges into one.

EXPLAIN: We arranged the commission over F-list and due to the fact that he was paying with linden through paypal, I agreed to hold off on the commission because I was weary of the money and had never accepted payment like that before. The payment, though, did go through and I promptly got on making a sketch and a pre-render of the drawing. I've had no response since giving him the sketch, and he paid for a full color. I'm worried that this will reflect poorly upon me, as I am normally very prompt with my artwork. If anyone can assist me in contacting Hajinn, I would be most appreciative.

It might be worth giving them a poke again. They've been active recently and maybe they forgot to read your note? Never know.

I've had issues before where commissioners didn't fully understand I needed an OK to continue after showing a progress update. Some thought they only needed to reply if they needed changes at all, not realizing that I wouldn't know if no changes need to be done if I'm not told. I can -maybe- see your last note being confusing (I don't find it is, but some people really do miss these things!)

Personally, I write something like this when I send them the sketch, I just copy paste it each time:

"Hiya!

Here's the progress update on your commission. Please make sure to reply and give me the go ahead to continue. I cannot continue withought an OK! Do keep in mind that I do really rough sketches, a lot may look different in the inked stage."

That way they know for sure they need to reply to this.
