Beware: Knuxlight

WHO: Knuxlight

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

WHEN: During a Join.me stream where he was conducting emergency commissions hosted on June 4, 2012.

WHAT: Two Character w/ Background Lineart Commission

PROOF: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/44671999/A_B%20post%20screen.png



Explain : Details under the LJ Cut

On June 4, 2012 I happened to catch a stream by knux doing emergency commissions I wanted a piece from him. I asked him for a lineart picture and I gave him 100 bucks mainly ,because I had the money and since it was a emergency I gave him some extra money I had. I was the second person on the list and while he basically did a skeletal like sketch he told me that he will continue the picture tomorrow in a traditional manner. I was okay with this so after two months of no updates I sent him a note on FA on August 21, 2012 he answered with the following response.

I got home on Friday and I didn't see any mention of a stream or anything on his twitter. At this point a note saying I was home and asking him to stream needed to been the best course of action here. After awhile I happened to notice he was doing Bust commissions via twitter and after awhile I decided to send him another note on February 6th.

At this point I was happy to get a update so on the 9th of February he posted the stream link. I joined late due to I was out the house ,but I was able to view the stream on my phone. He didn't work on my picture he was doing something else for his pin-up set.

After two months I sent him another note listed below.

This is basically sending the commission through the email ,because that way I can organize it for future reference. It went unread for over a month so yesterday I sent him a tweet asking him to read his notes and it went unread. My friend after telling him the story of what happened told me to post a article on him.

I Know I messed up on several issues here the main one was communication on my part and verifying times of when things were gonna happen. I also never brought it up during streams mainly due it was a matter between him and me so I didn't want other people to know about this. He is a full time college student and that's okay I just wanted an update on delays to make me feel at ease and not feel like I was missed or looked over. I hope I explained the situation clearly and I hope this artist understands what my intentions are not for malice. However my question I have is that should I continue to wait for my picture , ask for a refund or ask him to do something else in equal to the payment I sent him? Thank you for your time and if you have any questions I'll be glad to answer them for you.



Update: Me and Knux made arrangements for a refund I received some of the money back and waiting for the rest I'll keep you guys updated.

Update Number 2: Its been two months and I haven't received the rest of the funds he currently owes me. I will continue to contact him at a later date and time with a concrete answer on what to do on this situation. I don't want to be annoying to him by bothering him constantly.

No worries about the tags, we mods add those in =).

In terms of your post - I'd simply ask for a refund at this point. He's taken quite a long time and isn't communicating with you. Or perhaps give him a strict deadline of two weeks to finish it before refunding? You have to be firm and stand your ground in this situation and clearly explain that you are tired of waiting and expect the work to either be done, or refunded.

I had a similar issue with Knux, more than a year had passed with no image that I had already paid for. To his credit, he did refund me promptly when I asked for it.

Kinda sounds like my issue with him. One entire year to the day, and haven't seen jack-shit of what I already paid for. A refund doesn't seem likely either, since no matter how I contact him, he never responds.

In a nutshell, he's a twat. :P
