Advice with this commission

WHO: Will keep private in case situation is resolved

WHERE: Furbuy

WHAT: Inked two character colored with background.

WHEN: June 10, 2012

PROOF: http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/6003/proofjtk.png

EXPLAIN: I bought this commission on furbuy about a month ago. I sent payment right away, and he said he will be working on it at anthrocon. I sent a note every two weeks asking for a update. He kept giving me excuses about being sick, and even asked me who i was since he had forgotten about me. He didn't even have me on his commission list, and was posting art that he got commissioned to doing at anthrocon. I finally sent him a note asking i be put on the top of his list, since it was before the convention commissions he took on. He did so, and finally sent me a draft yesterday. Everything looked fine, and today he gave me the final. Except one thing, its not colored. If you look at the above image of the auction, it clearly sais colored. Or maybe i am misunderstanding it?

I sent him a email asking if he is going to color it and i received this as a reply:
This one was just for the inked image. (link of auction) will be sending it in the mail once you give me an address.

And i replied with:
"Inked adult commission of two characters colored with background. "
It sais colored?

I'm not sure what to do from here. I am waiting on a reply from him. Any advice would help.

I think it's pretty obvious-- either he genuinely forgot or he's hoping you'll let him get away with it. I think Furbuy archives closed auctions for at least a few months, so it's time to link him his own auction to prove it.

I hope he doesn't give you the old "oops, I made a mistake but now it's your problem". That's not how it works!

Yeah the description says that it's COLORED with a background. The fact that he forgot about it (or so he says) is a red flag that he wasn't really intending on doing it without a push (which you gave him), I hope you get what you paid for and he sends you what you paid for as well.

He's trying to wiggle out of giving you what your bid rightfully won. If he doesn't live up to his end of it you can report him to furbuy or submit a beware here, though hopefully you can resolve the situation without it coming to that.

He may have copied the description from a previous auction and forgot to edit out 'colored'.

But, it's still a high possibility that he's just trying to get out of work.

I could see that happening. Unfortunately, since that was in the description, that's what he's bound to. I'd be curious what the title of the auction said because wouldn't that also be in there? (i.e. "Adult commission, two characters, inked and colored w/background")

This person sounds like a real pain to do business with.. And if they can't remember the contents of their own auctions, I definitely don't want to commission them. Would be very curious to know who this is, so I can avoid them.
