Artist Beware : Fawnspots (resolved )

Just leting everyone know the issue has been resolved and what not. (:




WHO: Fawnspots

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

WHAT: A flat color sketch commission

WHEN: Sent payment on may 13th 2013

PROOF: This was our first interaction and how it would cost 14 pounds for a flat color sketch. http://www.ezimba.com/work/130830C/ezimba18370820796500.png
This was when she asked for my refs http://www.ezimba.com/work/130830C/ezimba18370853002800.png
and then I asked her for her paypal. http://www.ezimba.com/work/130830C/ezimba18370873114600.png

Proof of payment on may 13th 2013 http://www.ezimba.com/work/130830C/ezimba18370854133300.png

EXPLAIN:It has been over three months, I have noted her once or twice to find out how the commission was coming along but no reply and I know that she has read the note but she just chooses to never reply. http://www.ezimba.com/work/130830C/ezimba18370853158900.png

I have commissioned for a flat color sketch from fawnspots. It was all nice and dandy at first, but now I cannot get a hold of her and I've seen her post some art atleast a month ago. I have made this in hopes that people watch out for her or that she can finally get a hold of me, stop ignoring me, and either give me back my money or finish the commission.

that's disappointing to hear that. I've been tempting to commission her for a while

Should Kiwie be added to the tags too? It's her old account but she's best known under it. Myself, and my friends still use that name for her.

Hello there, it's fawnspots here. I just wanted to personally apologise for the lack of contact regarding your commission, and how long it has taken me to finish it....

I just thought I'd let you know what's going on, first and foremost... I'm currently typing this from my iPad, my laptop is out of use at the moment as the charger broke, I have a new one ordered that shall arrive next week.

My queue, at the moment, consists of several last owed commission pieces and a couple of art trades. I am moving out of my home in 2 weeks for college and I had the intention of completing all of my owed work by then.

But goodness, I honestly cannot stress enough how sorry I am... I didn't forget about your commission at all, I can confess I am at complete fault for the lack of contact. I have anxiety disorder which really meddles with my ability to respond to notes sometimes, as ridiculous as it sounds.... To amend this? I've resorted to revising my TOS once my current queue is cleared, and switch to emails as opposed to FA's note system because.... Lets be honest, it's quite painful to navigate.

I am keenly aware of where I was at fault, absolutely. It was not professional of me in the slightest. I'm very regretful that it has come to this, and I sincerely hope that I can make up to my errors ensuring I never repeat this behaviour.

So, as for options, I am completely comfortable with either decision:
- A full refund
- The artwork completed when my new laptop charger arrives (which will be, by postal delivery estimate, 3rd of September onwards)

One last apology for my ill behaviour, and I sincerely hope that I can sort this out for you. All the best. X

hey im very sorry for all of this.
I am going to take this post down ( just letting you know)
I felt horrible when my friends would tell me to post this. I just had to get away to get ahold of you , you know?
I was just geting tired of noting you and you would look at the note and not reply. I know you are busy with life but even a simple reply back would have made me feel better. And i always hate bugging people about this sort of thing. anyways yea i would still love the picture.

Hey, it's against the community rules to take posts down, just a heads up!

You shouldn't feel bad, so long as things are resolved and you aren't trying to purposely put a bad name on the artist - versus warning people of the artist and their practices like A_B is meant for.

And chiming it that you cannot remove a beware once it is approved and posted. The guidelines/rules state this.

Was just going back through to see if this was followed up on. It seems the OP edited that the issue is resolved so maybe the tags should be updated? Sorry if this is an odd comment, I feel weird commenting since I wasn't involved lol just figured you might want to update the tags

There's no need to apologise, sweetheart, I understand why it was necessary and that I was at fault for staying quiet regarding your artwork. As the others have mentioned above, deleting the post breaches the community's guidelines, but we can solve this :)

So you'd like the picture still? That's no problem at all. I'll let you know the moment I have my access to my laptop again (it will most likely be Tuesday) and rest assured, your art will be completed as soon as possible.

It's nice to see an artist come here and handle things calmly.

Just letting you know my laptop charger has arrived! Expect the artwork from me soon, I'll send you a note on FA when I finish it. Thank you!
