Starfinder - Past Due Shout Out

Hey there everyone. At the suggestion of one of the mods here, I decided that it would be better to post this here rather than creeping through comments since it may still get lost in the shuffle that way.

So, if I still owe you any sort of artwork, please contact me at kannos[at]nvisionphotosandart.com and let me know so I can work with you to create something that you will be pleased with. I no longer have a working printer so if those of you who wanted prints are okay with it, I can substitute a commission/illustration of greater value instead, or I can look and see if I can afford to get the prints made in a shop locally, although depending on the cost I may not be able to afford to do them all at once since my own finances are bearing down on me hard.

So, I am willing to work with you guys, just please keep it civil, don't bite my head off, and let's work together to get the few remaining folks off the 'unhappy' list and over to my 'happy' one (which is quite populated now due to all those awesome'pay upon complete' commissions I've churned out on Inkbunny over the past 2 years).

My new business model (well, not that new, it's been around for 2 years now) of 'pay upon complete' has been widely successful over on Inkbunny with 180+ commissions being completed that way, and the number continues to grow with each passing day. While the volume of commissions isn't enough to sustain all my bills/living expenses, it's certainly enough to cause people to take notice. I apologize to those who have fallen between the cracks using the old method years ago and would like to make sure they get something nice in the end. I also have no intention of ever switching from my current method because it works so incredibly well and everyone has been very happy with it so far, myself included. :) I hope that folks here are willing to see that and that those who have been upset in the past are willing to contact me and allow me to make amends with them.

EDIT: Here's a link to Kesslan's finished piece: https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=419719 I already e-mailed the high res to him, posted it on Inkbunny, and had a friend post a shout with the link on his FA as well.

Also, here are two of the WIP sketches so far for Utunu. I figured I would share these just so you guys see that stuff is being worked on :) http://nvisionphotosandart.com/utunusketches1.jpg (NSFW!)

EDIT 2: And here's art for Nushaa! She wanted some of my 'fuzzies' critters, so here they are: https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=420854

EDIT 3: Finished 1 of 2 badges for Jaelyn! http://nvisionphotosandart.com/jaelynbadgeweb.jpg

I may edit this post periodically to add stuff like this. Hope that's okay with the mods here!

EDIT 4: Revised BatCountry/Lestat/goddamnanimal's piece as per his request, which can be seen here: https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=274323

EDIT 5: Finished a backlog piece for Micha/mantitaur: https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=449678

SECONDARY MOD NOTE
Do not attack Kannos for any reason what so ever. This is a post to get resolution, not flog them needlessly.

While I'm not someone who is owed anything by you, I do want to say that I commend you for trying to make things right. It takes alot of courage to face people like this, and you've gained alot of respect in my book for doing it c:

Good luck on trying to get things sorted and I'm glad to see you still around; your work is stunning c:

Thank you! A lot of people are hung up on the very VERY dumb things I did as a teenager, but they have got to realize that people grow up and move past that. Teens do a lot of stupid things. Some end up knocked up. Some wreck their parents' cars. And some fall flat on their face with commissions. It doesn't mean that because someone made mistakes as a teenager, they are forever going to be a terrible person until they die of old age. I am sure that each and every one of the people who points a finger at me can also point one back at themselves regarding some point in their life where they acted poorly. It's human nature and it's only a bad thing if someone doesn't learn from it and take steps to fix it/change it.

I'm not the same person I was almost a decade ago, and I hope that people can see that and treat me accordingly. :)

I'd also like to jump in with Anuvia here-- I've never done business with you, but I'm really glad to see such a big improvement in your business! Mad props to you for working so hard to get everything straightened out for your past commissioners, and I wish you the best of luck. :D I'll definitely be keeping you in mind for a future commission, I love your work. <3

I have said harsh things in the past, because at the time, you were doing bad things.
I've mostly kept out of the recent posts because I do see you making some efforts at change, which seem to be working for new people. I'm glad you've found a system that works. I still think you could work on the professional attitude some (others have already explained how and I don't see a point in repeating it), but even so, that has improved as well.
And if you do actually make up for /all your past commissions that you can reasonably get a hold of/, I will be willing to believe you've changed enough to be a decent businessperson and have nothing more to make up for. This post is a good step, I hope to be able to look back later and see that all known obligations are filled.

Sharon (also known as T the Wolverine) is not really in the fandom anymore. I suspect they would rather just have their money returned(I think it was relatively minor amount). This was pre 2006, probably pre 2005.

This is their public email they use on Tumblr and LJ, etc.:

iheartcontortionists@gmail.com

I think after keeping their money for so long with nothing for them to show for it the least you could do is contact her. She shouldn't have to chase you.

I just sent her an e-mail. Hopefully she will still want art, since at the moment I simply can't afford to refund anything, even 'minor amounts' due to my financial situation, however I CAN and am willing to create art for her at a greater value than what she actually paid for (think of it as accruing 'art interest')

Hopefully I will hear from her soon.

I may have never gotten anything from you, but i do enjoy your art, and I am very impressed with you being willing to make things right with those of the past. I wish you the best of luck with it too!

Question for the mods!
I saw someone filled up the shouts on the astray account with links to Kannos' IB account. Would it be permissible for one of you to do the same linking to this journal? That might get people's attention. (Also, I understand if that isn't acceptable, I'm just shooting out an idea.)

He may have written it off, but it's a good idea to touch base and make things right on his end as well.

I have tried numerous times, even when he was living with Maveric Cowboy (who was a witness to it) but I couldn't (and still can't) afford a refund and he refused to discuss any other way I could make it right. I really don't know what to do because I keep trying to offer to resolve it and can't seem to make any progress on the matter.

I'm trying to make these right to the fullest of my abilities but it's hard when the other side doesn't take any steps. :/ I'm trying with this one, I really am..

Anyone who cares to read the journals posted on my Inkbunny/FA are free to do so.

I just wanted to add here that I am satisfied with the end result of the piece she created regardless of anything else related to the situation behind it.

And yes, I think she actually did do a good job on it, especially considering she isn't used to doing sci-fi style armour.

I am glad to hear that you are pleased with it, and if there are any adjustments you would like me to make, please let me know. :) I definitely want to do all I can to make it worth the long wait.

Whoo awesome to see you doing well and getting all this cleared up Kannos!

Your new method of taking commissions has been awesome (still adore my badge), and I hope this all helps clear up the air for you and others :D

Just also here to say I'm really pleasantly surprised that you're working to make amends with your old customers - Its going to be hard work from the looks of things, but your efforts in it definitely won't be wasted. The community can be pretty forgiving and supportive as long as the effort is made and maintained to make things right. :)

Good luck, and if it keeps up I'll definitely be commissioning you someday too. I've watched you for years but was wary to do so because of old work behaviors, so I'm really excited that I'll hopefully be able to do so without worry in the near future!

Glad to see you're actually trying to make good with your owed art.
