Beware: TesxaCoyote

WHO: TesxaCoyote on Furaffnity; sneak-theif on Deviantart

WHERE: www.furaffinity.net/user/tesxacoyote ; http://sneak-thief.deviantart.com/

WHEN: Today, 7/30/12, around 10:45 pm.
Cut because it's long.

PROOF and EXPLAINATION: So today, 7/29/2012, I (Jack.) went into a livestream hosted by TesxaCoyote on Furaffinity, sneak-thief on DeviantArt, with the promise of mini chibis for $7. Now I thought they were adorable so I totally wanted one. So I asked to be on the list, everything was cool, and when it was my turn I linked the character I wanted. It happened to be this character here, owned by my friend Metz: http://i47.tinypic.com/vwzsdy.jpg

Tesxa accepted, drew the character and then asked for my payment which I gladly gave because the artwork was quite beautiful and cute. Then she posted it on her account: http://i50.tinypic.com/2qa7l7n.png

I commented on it before I went to save it to my computer and what do I find when I save it? http://i50.tinypic.com/24wgffm.png

For some odd reason she found it necessary to title the file "Fuck you this design is awful." Which is not only incredibly immature and rude, but it begs me to ask the question WHY do the commission in the first place if you hate the character? She could've easily just refused to do it.

I was still in the livestream at that point, and I said : "did you really hate the design that much? >_>"

To which she replied: "OH IT BURNED MY EYES."

I left before I could snag a screenshot of that interaction because I was so upset. It wasn't until after that a friend recommended I had done it and suggested I post on Artists Beware.

And then the owner of the character, Metz, commented on the submission (beneath my first comment that I put before I saw the file name): http://i46.tinypic.com/2j851x.png

and got an immature and rude response in return: http://i45.tinypic.com/dytzxi.png

After that she did not communicate with either Metz or I. She could've easily told me that she did not like the character design and that would've been the end of that. I would've picked another character, or left. Instead she had to take a snide, sneaky path that left me, and others, feeling very hurt and upset and made her look bad.

And to top that off she did not apologize for her rude behavior. Not a single "sorry" was said. She simply brushed it off like it was not a big deal. Very rude, and highly unprofessional.

They also appear to be hamming it up/mocking the incident with their next commissioner (friend?). Check out the file name in the pic following yours. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8528549/

Also, their new icon. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8529081/

Way to be professional.

I don't understand why people feel that instead of politely declining (or doing the art and keeping the venting to themselves or at least private chat with their friends) they have to find some way to be snarky and rude about it.

Holy crap :/ That is disappointing.
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
Wow. Really? Money isn't that important - the artist had every right to back down from taking the commission on. The fact they took it means they needed to keep their person feelings out of it and just do the work.

That file name is terrible, and I am sure they did it banking on the fact one of both of you would save it just to see how they felt - which is absolutely shady, 100% unprofessional and obviously over 9000 on immaturity. Ridiculous.
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:36 pm (UTC)
That's just completely uncalled for.
She shouldn't have said anything at all, even if she really didn't like the design.

Also, I don't see the eye-burning of it, they seem to be pretty dull colors, but maybe that's just me.
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:38 pm (UTC)
THIS! This completely! The design is actually rather pretty with the colors used in it. It makes me think of fall.

The artist was out of line, since they see this as a big ol' game!

Errr... Talk about a severe overreaction. It's like she went out of her way to be incredibly rude and cause a problem. Surely she knew that file name would cause a stink?

For what it's worth, I'm not a huge fan of superuber colorful characters and such, but I don't see anything wrong with this design. It's bright, yeah, but not eye-searing and the colors work well together. So I really don't see what the problem is.
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:45 pm (UTC)
That's awful D:
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:52 pm (UTC)
Shocked, just shocked.
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:56 pm (UTC)
It kind of sucks that I know that Kemushi person defending her actions. She's actually commissioned me quite a bit too, but I never really took her for the kind to defend something like that. :I
Aug. 7th, 2012 03:18 pm (UTC)
there will be always people who will defend their friends even if that action is completely irrational.

its just like how people defend their friends/sons/family after being found guilty of murder.. claiming they were "nice kids".
Jul. 30th, 2012 03:57 pm (UTC)
Oh wow I really looked up to her as an artist but...damn. She always seemed to be a cool person to me 8/ disappointment x1000

Edit: I've also always wanted to commission her ;; buh not anymore. I have a colorful design as well so... hah NOPE. Not risking that.

I'll never understand people who don't get the difference between 'can or should' in regards to expressing their opinion. People like this are always the first to go IT'S MY OPINION I'M ALLOWED TO HAVE IT when that's not the problem. She could have easily had her opinion, but sometimes it just isn't in anyone's best interest (including her own)to publicly express it.

I'm sure she knew you were going to save the picture, most people do. It was an incredibly unnecessary, meanspirited jab and it's a shame, her stuff is cute, but I can never support people who take someone's money in one hand while giving them the finger in the other.

All that said, there isn't even anything particularly bright or 'eye burning' about that design. The colours are pretty pastel.
Jul. 30th, 2012 04:10 pm (UTC)
My fave is the people who say "that's my opinion" as if them saying those three words makes other people unable to have a counter-debate.

Jul. 30th, 2012 04:03 pm (UTC)
That...Is the most disapointing thing I've seen in awhile.

The character is simply stunning. I don't know WHY she would dislike drawing it :/. Still...Totally uncalled for. Very upsetting just to read. I can't imagine how bad you and Metz felt good god...

I can't even ... Wow.
I'm sorry, but how hard is it for her to just refuse a commission she doesn't want to do? And it's not even like the design is bad.

Honestly, this will only come back to bite her in the arse when she does grow up to be a "professional" commission-artist.
Jul. 30th, 2012 04:12 pm (UTC)
Yanno, I thought those chibis were adorable and was planning on getting one, but not anymore :/ Unwatched, too.

The fact that she did this, all that I can tell on purpose to get a rise out of you, and the lengths to which she keeps pushing this, is extremely unprofessional and just screams immaturity. She could have easily declined the commission if she felt that strongly about it, or keep her thoughts to herself, or heck, even apologize for it after the fact! Sheesh.

I'm sorry you had to deal with this, OP ):
