Update: Paint/Skink/Cockatrice

WHO: When I commissioner her, she was under the username Paint on FA. She's also been Skink on Weasyl and most recently is Cockatrice on Flight Rising.

WHERE: I originally commissioner her over a stream while she was still doing business out of FA.
http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=view&tab=userpage&id=18876 is their userpage now, on the right under 'Recent Forum Activity' you can find their most recent commission journals.

WHAT: I commissioned her January 19th 2013 for $110 worth of pay what you want commissions, to be divided into two images. A few months later, I commissioned her again for $30 colored sketch. (exact date not known because I paid for it over some sort of funding website and can't seem to find it on my paypal although I remember paying and I am down on her commission spreadsheet for this commission. You can find the spreadsheet here http://oi57.tinypic.com/15z5a46.jpg my commissions are near the top and bottom.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ak6G1XPK44mudFNHWW83ODhYTmNsVkpNLWN5aE5RTmc#gid=0 this is the actual link to the google docs of the commission spreadsheet.)

WHEN: I paid her January 19th, 2013. You can ready about what has happened from then up to this update post here http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/766364.html

PROOF: http://oi62.tinypic.com/ixfkus.jpg screenshot of my payment for the original $110.

EXPLAIN: http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/766364.html The EXPLAIN: section here will cover what has happened up to this point, but there isn't much to report on.. which is why I think this update is necessary.
Despite being active once more on Tumblr and actively taking commissions on Flight Rising, I still have not recieved any contact from Skink/Cockatrice. And no wonder, you see later she purposefully turned off what appear to be all incoming messages from people she does not herself follow on Tumblr.
http://lollipopatrice.tumblr.com/ here is her tumblr, so you can see how active she still is.
http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=mb&board=skin&id=1030735 here's a link to a forum post where you can see she is offering commissions for Flight Rising things (don't quite understand the game fully) for $5, $10-20, and $15-25.
http://lollipopatrice.tumblr.com/post/97124492225 here is a tumblr post where she claims her 'money troubles are alleviated' and says in the same post she can no longer see any asks sent to her, nor see notifications from someone if she isn't following them. It's fantastic that she no longer has any money troubles, however I don't see what the reason is then to continue to ignore customers who want a refund for something they paid for in 2013.

The point of this update post is to warn/alert people to this artists's continued activity on Flight Rising, despite still owing money to past commissioners from over a year ago.
Artist's beware has moved!

You know, I could almost understand it if she wasn't taking on new commissions and buying tons of new animals, but since she is doing that, why the hell can't she just email you and tell you what's up!

It's not the first time she's done this either, and the last time she refused to answer/read notes because it "stressed her out"... :/ She really needs to stop taking commissions.

I'm very sorry that you're still going through this :c But when flight rising opens again you can join and let her know whats going on. FR has no way to 'hide' alerts, so you could note her there. Hopefully she'll answer :o

I do hope when I contact her on there the two of us can have a nice civil discussion over this whole thing.

And I won't just get ignored or blocked or something.

Hah I'm surprised I'm even on her list there. I've been needing that fix since 2012. :U

I'm surprised too that it isn't just deleted or something

Just wanted to let you know that Flight Rising has an open registration window tomorrow, October 13! It should be open for 24 hours; maybe you can try to get in contact with them through there as well. Not sure if this will be particularly helpful, but it's worth a try at the very least!

This is sort of a general question for everyone, but is it appropriate to contact an artist via a pet site? Especially one like Flight Rising, where it does have these limited registration windows.
Oct. 12th, 2014 09:34 pm (UTC)
In cases like this? I'd think so. Paint/Skink has pretty much closed off all over avenues for their clients to contact them, so there's not much they can do.

What a shame. I hate it so much when people treat their customers this way.
Oct. 15th, 2014 06:08 pm (UTC)

Skink seems to have closed their tumblr? Wonder if it's related to this somehow?

Oct. 15th, 2014 06:57 pm (UTC)

They posted that yesterday, so maybe.

not sure if this has been resolved yet, but she recently approached me about commissions on FR. what made me feel uneasy was that she specifically requested USD, not in-game currency, which is why i thought to post here.

so, she IS attempting to take on new "quick" commissions, albeit in private. :/
Feb. 26th, 2015 09:38 pm (UTC)
No, this hasn't been resolved, nor do I ever really expect it to be with how she has begun reacting to me trying to get in touch with her. I just want to have it out as a warning at this point.

I commissioned her so many times before without incident, and now I am unable to get my $140 back.

Thank you for letting me know about her continuing to take commissions.
