Beware Mikachutuhonen

Who: Mikachutuhonen

Where: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mikachutuhonen

Explain: I want to express that this had nothing to do with the art or the subject of the image, but of the behavior he exhibited after its completion.
While working on the image, he asked if I would mind streaming the last bit (as I didn't have much left to work on) and I said sure and did so. During the stream (via skype) he made an inappropriate comment, which I chose to ignore even though it made me really uncomfortable. I tried not to talk to him to much during the stream, aside from answering his questions/responding to the changes he wanted. At the end, after talking to my boyfriend (who was really upset/angry about the comment he left), he asked me not to have any further contact with him and to remove him from my skype after the commission was finished. I agree, and once I'd finished, I told Mikachutuhonen this and blocked him.
He began to message me on FA, requesting an explanation.

This conversation followed. https://www.dropbox.com/s/027ha1u9bm06g89/mikachutuhonen.png
He also sent a few notes to my boyfriend. if you want to see them, I'll get caps of them too.

I want to state that yes most of this could have been avoided if I had just explained to him in the beginning that I was uncomfortable with that kind of talk and had I just blocked him on FA, but I honestly didn't think he'd blow up as much as he did, especially when he told me I and my boyfriend deserve to die.
So yes, a big part of this is my fault, and I definitely won't be using Skype for commissions and I'll make sure everyone is clear that I'm not interested in that kind of talk during a transaction. But I thought that people ought to see the rather nasty attitude he took with me in the end, even though I tried to remain polite and firm about my decision.

Quick Edit: Just wanted to add that he also block-evaded my boyfriend via an account called Stoaty1, to continue harassing him/us. He has since left us alone, though he did watch my new account for some reason.

Like you said, you have a right to refuse service. And honestly, I myself was disgusted. Even if you are drawing any kind of adult art for someone, and they say that kind of thing to you, its... TMI.. and... well, uncalled for. Especially if he knew you had a boyfriend already.

He snowballed out of control in those FA messages, I think the cursing was out of line. Honestly, if I were you, I would have blocked him immediately on FA too, rather than let him drag it along. He should have known better than to say what he said on skype, that's going too far. Sounds like someone I would like to avoid.

I agree with this. The second he was blocked on Skype he should have been blocked on FA. His sexual commentary is completely out of line, and you were right to feel like you did, OP.

Wow that was one hell of a blow up, guilt tripping, insulting, and wishing death on the commissioner to boot. This is definitely a warranted beware.

go fuck yourself.. i hope you and your mate die soon. and hopefully no one commissions more of your shitty art... you dont deserve any fans if you are an asshole like this.

WOW. This behavior right here is enough of a reason for nobody to ever work for him, ever. What a horrid attitude. :/

I'm really sorry you had to put up with this guy, and you definitely did the right thing in blocking him. Good on you for being as civil as you were, I definitely wouldn't have lasted so long-- especially after he wished for death on you and your SO!

Holy moly, it starts bad and just gets worse from there. D: There was no way that any of that was called for. Beware well warranted, indeed.

Uhg that first comment on skype made me cringe and the behavior there after was uncalled for. Thanks for posting the beware. It was well warranted.

'There's no good reason for me to not be able to commission more from you...'

Sure there is - the artist doesn't want to work with you. That's all the reason that is needed.

Really 'love' how he acknowledged he was being TMI with his pawing comment; then turns around and feigns ignorance when he was blocked due to inappropriate comments. (and everything else he said - I honestly respect how you were able to keep a cool head through all that).

Good call on blocking him. That definitely not the kind of behavior anyone should have to deal with.

Ugh, that comment is so non consensual :(

You don't tell people stuff like that unless there's a clear indication that the other person is receptive, and commissions are not an indication. It's work.
That's like telling the guy at the adult toy store what you're planning with your purchases; they don't want to know that, they're just there to collect a paycheck. Jeez.

And to suggest you're unfair and HE is the blameless victim because you don't want to be the conversationalist equivalent of a jizzrag? No.

I absolutely hate it when people make those sort of comments and don't want to be held accountable for them, anywhere. It's not acceptable and never WILL be acceptable out of nowhere, ever.

I honestly think he knew he did something wrong, and is just feigning ignorance. Again, OP should have probably told him what he did and that would maybe calm the waters a little, but it's still no excuse for the commissioner's behavior.

And bashing the art was just an attempt to insult that didn't make sense. Why commission an artist, then tell them to their face their art sucks when, uh, you were going to pay for it? Geez.

Beware well warranted.
