Beware-- Roxanna aka Pixen_Vixen

WHO: Roxanna aka Pixen_Vixen

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/roxanna/
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/pixenvixen/

WHAT: A two piece image set that cost me 20$, in digital art form

WHEN: I sent her the money March 9th, 2013

PROOF: Here is the image where she agreed to it, and gave me her paypal. I blanked out the commission details as well as her email. http://i.imgur.com/VAP9iMX.png

EXPLAIN: I saw this artist while browsing FA and decided I could commission her because I liked her art, and she was struggling with things at the time. So I sent her 20$ (I was not the only one, as she was having a "sale") and I waited and waited and waited. I did not contact her clear until April. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

So it's been roughly a year now and she must have long since forgotten about me, because I have since seen no notes from her. I never saw anyone else get their art either, with one exception I think. I am also not in her commissions list either, and she continues to push everything off because she has issues. Well, we all have issues, and I can be caring and understanding until I think I am being cheated. I think she uses her mood swings to excuse herself from doing work she was paid for. I don't expect to get the art from her now, but I want to warn people not to commission her.


Current Mood: satisfied


Edit: I contacted her three most used accounts I think. http://i.imgur.com/p9AfJBC.png
Edit 2: Currently talking things over with the artist.
Edit 3: The artist and I have worked out our problems and I have gotten my refund.

Obviously by her most recent journal, and the number of shouts asking for work, etc; there is zero intention to finish owed work.

Also I noticed that they asked you to pay as gift. I don't care if their art was the best gosh darned thing since green tea ice cream; you never pay for a product/service as "gift". Ever. The "gift" option is for things like donations and other NON transaction-type things.

You also cannot ASK for a "gift" back, which means you're up a creek getting your money back over this.

If anyone ever tries to charge you for a commission and asks you to pay via any type of "gift" option; say thanks but no thanks you do NOT purchase from individuals who try to buck Paypal's system.

Yeah, I've since figured a lot of this out. I've done many commissions since this one, so I learned a lot. I've never dealt with someone like this though.

The only thing I can do is show her this, and maybe she will reevaluate her flagrant commission taking.

This is her new active account if you want to try and contact her, or add it to the beware.

Thank you, much appreciated. I'm going to send her notes with a link to here, so maybe something will come of it.

her journals are still available even if she de-activated the account. https://www.furaffinity.net/journals/eraviadragonfly/

The previous now deleted one, was basically saying "if you want a refund, reply to this journal or you're not getting it" But I didn't manage to get a screenshot as I managed to x'the window instead of pinning it

There are so man begging for donations journals, i'm getting a sick sense of deja vu.

She apparently used to be DustyTheMare's roommate.

Not even bothering to warn. eravia is permanently banned for:

Language
Deleting comments

Did herself a real disservice there. Will update tags with her other accounts, space withstanding.

Screencaps of Deleted Comments
Pixen_Vixen's now-deleted comments on this post, screencapped from my Gmail inbox (her username is eravia):

http://imgur.com/AH424R8 -- Initial response
http://imgur.com/qbBFnDI -- exchange including F-bomb
http://imgur.com/AkFNW7F -- more exchange

Hope it's relatively clear, the way Gmail organizes stuff is a little bit of a pain, but it should be easy enough to piece together.

Re: Screencaps of Deleted Comments
Oh wow. I had no idea that she had left me a comment after all the major deletions addressing: her being close to tears, not wanting to be a part of the fandom, or having an entire year of pain.
I kind of feel bad. :(

I'm happy to see you got a refund. If you feel its fully resolved, I'll mark it as such.
