What: Adult Line Art commissioned for $30, screenshots of conversation below
When: July 11th, 2012
Proof: Here are some screenshots.
Details: About nine months ago I commissioned the artist for some line art. I payed the $30 he wanted in advance and waited for a few weeks before asking how the picture was coming along. He never replied and over the months I've sent several messages asking him about it which he has decided to ignore. Eventually I decided to ask him for a refund, but he ignored that message too. I eventually decided to message somebody else who had commissioned the artist to see if the same thing had happened to him, which it kind of had. The artist only started to ignore his messages recently, although he said that the other persons commission was nearly finished and would be uploaded during an art dump a few months ago, which it wasn't. (Details can be found in one of the screenshots.) Although, while his and my picture weren't uploaded, he did upload another persons commission, but that's the only one he seems to have worked on.
I sent the artist another message, this time demanding that I get a refund. According to FA, he has read the message, but has decided not to reply. He pretty much completely stopped responding to my messages the moment I payed him. I don't know if there's anything I can do, like take legal action against him or anything, but at the very least I want people to know what he's done so that other people don't commission him and lose their money.
Well, he's gotten back in touch with me and agreed to a refund and even decided to finish the commission, which means he's not all bad. Glad he finally got back in touch with me.
Current Mood: Okay.
