WHO: Sugio, Mark Welker

WHERE www.furaffinity.net/user/Sugio

WHAT: Sugio's 3/4 fullsuit commision for a total of $300 + $25

WHEN: 11/2010 ~ Present

http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/614515.htm

This might be an explanation of the entry above. Be aware, that it is a long story that sums up the story of the entire commission progress of Sugio and I. This is written in a timeline like format. But with a bit of narratives along the way.


It all started one day in late august when a roommate and friend at the time, Kassandra, had made a suggestion to one her of old friends by the name of Sugio, to get his first fursuit made my me. Lacking on funds and seeking experience of fursuit construction, Sugio and I had struck a deal for a price of ($300). I would make an almost full fursuit for him, short of the torso body. A concept piece was written up

Payment was received in partial, and the work was underway..
I told him to expect a 3-month turn around, not already knowing the labor in this type of project. It was my fault in missed deadlines for not knowing beforehand how long something like this actually takes. Simultaneously, other issues had arrived, aside from the herniation in my spine and partial paralysis.
1st-month~ all materials arrived, Kassandra had up and moved out on us due to some pointless argument, and I began working on the tail of the suit at a pace that I can muster up. Mind you, I had not realized the labor intensiveness that this project would take, and my body could only take so much strain. Regardless the tail was complete.

3rd-month~ Since I had missed the deadline, a new one was made. Once again I had a tough time understanding some of labor in this, I later mentioned that It would be done by at least Megaplex, for it was many more months away. Sugio never ceased to contact me and text message me about the suit. This occurred slowly, but over time, it became a daily, sometimes twice a day or more.

As you can see, this was about a week before Megaplex. The suit was almost done, but it was for the most part complete, at least complete enough to walk around in it
So the plan was, that Sugio could use the suit for Megaplex and show it off to everyone in it's pre-release stages and then wash and return right after..
He decided to use the fursuit as if it were completed He ended up participating in most fursuit events, where I had instructed him not too do such in fear that it would ruin the holding stitches. Amazing those stitches held on, but the eyes I set in, had completely faded and the colors from them ran. The eyes were glossy paper with photographic ink printed onto them, and were still not ready for heavy intensive wear then. So the eyes were gone, and I spent time away from planning the wedding (which was also held at Megaplex) and convention forgoing to make a new set of eyes on the spot I had taken thread and stitched eyes into the balaclava for reassurance, After all, THIS WAS ALL TEMPORARY. After telling again that he should not have used the suit in the games, he took the suit and used it within a dance.:

The suit wasn't all that in bad shape from this convention, minus the eyes. He took the suit home where I expected him to wash after telling to take Triggerfox's panel on "how to take care of a fursuit" (Which he didn't go too) and to look up a fursuit cleaning website online, such as this:(http://forums.furtopia.org/index.php/topic,36325.0.html) and return the suit....

So after these shots, he wanted to hold on to it for much longer, so that he could wear it some more around the malls of Florida his turned into mall visits and an anime convenion (AFO).

He stops by Kazer's Brother's place (it's where we were living at the time) and drops the suit off about 2 months after the last time I saw it leave my hands

He had mentioned that he had a few friends " fix a few things" (voiding the contract).This suit has not been cleaned, it was very stinky and reeked of sweat, it still had sweat in it and was moist to the touch.
I put working on this off for a bit, as 2 weeks from receiving it, I had went through my spinal surgery and was order by the doctor (and by my own body) not to move around at all or lift really anything up. Despite this, Sugio kept on calling me on a daily event asking how his suit was doing etc.
He even started showing up at Kazer's Brother's place completely unannounced looking for me
In that moment of frustration. I canceled the commission, saying that I am done working on this, and you have done more then enough to void the contract. ( Taking it longer then agreed and having other people work on it)
So he said "fine" and came and picked the suit up..
This is when all the FA drama and Facebook drama, and everywhere else drama began to happen, This was in October of 2011
The suit was then modified after the canceling, by Kassandra and a ody suit was made for it by someone else.

There was bad water between us all for a year or so but it seemed like it was fading into the past
There was then the copyright art theft, which you can view all about in the artist beware tag Comm-sugio
(http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/614515.html

More actions arose out of this He claimed that he would burn the suit once he gets a new one He claims that he hates the suit (even when he's wearing it around) This but his gallery is full of pictures of the fursuit.

Then he posted a fursuit makers review about me, I will assume at this point, still trying to spite me. The reason I assume this, is because he only started watching the group a day before he posted the journal. ~http://i.imgur.com/ioeSeYT.jpg?2

This was removed not long after and was followed by these

I am really annoyed with having to deal with this still This is the reason why I won't take commissioned fursuits anymore. He only paid around $300, which just covered the materials. It's been 1.5 years. I just don't even care anymore, and would like for this all to finally be over.

This is about where it leaves off Here's a link to the gallery of all images used and then some. http://nxcritter.imgur.com/all/ As well is gallery shows that he doesn't dis-like this suit to not use it.


Edited on: 6/2/2014

He's burned the suit calling out " never again nataya, never again" after ripping it apart.

Here is the YouTube he posted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4wXeaDLgd4&sns=em

I have a copy of the video if this is taken down.

Edit: 10 10 2014 Due to overwhling request for the video I am now posting it.

The shouts he's making aren't really too comforting.

I won't be surprised if he comes here and starts posting spam again considering what happened in the last beware.

I remember that fursuit review. I'm not sure why it was taken down. That the head was lined in duct tape under the fur? I don't remember you coming forward on that review and explaining anything as it was taken down in a matter of hours.

I have some questions about this post. You said a contract was written up and that getting it worked on by someone else voided the contract, do you have a screencap of that? Any e-mail stating that?

Where is the conversation saying he agreed to send it back to you? I don't actually see any conversations between you to or any agreements to do anything; just links to pictures. Mind sharing?

Sugio, bit of advice. You've been banned, you are ban evading. Your comments will be hidden and removed as you are no longer (ever) welcome in this community.

Post your proof elsewhere, please stop bringing it here.

Oh my goodness I can't believe this is still going on.
And he hasn't changed a bit!
I'd say "avoiding like the plague" but the guy goes to most of Florida's few cons and large meetups.

The biggest reason's I haven't been going to meetup's and conventions Is mostly due to lack funds, lack of rides (with the car dead), healing from surgery, recently ended pregnancy, and now my new born son. In all honesty going to a meet would be nice regardless of his presence and If he start's a scene then I'll just ignore it. Who really bring's personal issues up publicly at meeting with out the intent of wanting to start a scene?

With Zel (my baby boy) getting his shot's on the 13th he'll be able to go out and I can then take him or get a baby sitter so I can finally have some time out of the house.

People can see for them selves what the issue is if they ask then I'll point them here and that will be that. I don't see any reason in dragging out this thing any longer, but when you start attacking me for something I never finished, or violate my right's as an artist then I'll speak up. I normally keep my issue with others to my self and a few close friends. Everyone has there own right to their perceptions and opinions. I just state my side in the most non bias way possible giving facts from my side if they don't agree that's their opinion and it's not my place to convince them other wise un-less they ask or have the information wrong.

I somehow expected this guy to do what he did and make 'alts' to post here.

On the topics note, beware well warranted.

his behavior in the comments alone was enough to warrant a beware. good luck with the situation, op!

His behavior is outrageous. He messaged me on the matter after I left a comment on his status on Facebook, then proceeded to block me when I told him he was wrong.He apparently thinks that breaking a contract isn't a reason for her to no longer work on it.

Also a derogatory "Fuck you -__-;; " on my last journal on Furaffinity (which he unfortunately removed before I thought to screencap it). This kid seriously has some attitude issues.

Woooow ... this guy has serious issues. Beware VERY warranted. Being a Florida Fur, also, I sincerely hope I never run into him at any meets or cons, once I'm able to start attending them. This person is trouble with a capital "T".

Update: on the issue.
Many people as of recently have been asking me for a copy of the video of sugio burning the suit. I have posted it for your conveniance in an edit to the posting.
