EXPLAIN: I fell in love with SiliasCrown's work when I first saw it, I thought they seemed to be a trust worthy artist because they seemed to pump out art like nobody's business. So they opened for emergency commissions, which was killing two birds with one stone, I was about to commission someone I've idolised and it was to help them when they were in need. So I commissioned them, the ordering went without a hitch and I began on the waiting process. The original time of wait was estimated to be about roughly a month.

A month and more went by and I saw nothing, eventually, thinking I've given enough time I asked for an update, what's going on, how long I'm going to have to wait. I got a note back eventually saying an excuse and that they'd do it in so many days. I was like okay, that's understandable, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. The time went by, I gave it a lot longer before I messaged, again giving time then I finally got another response, with guess what another excuse. It happened like this over and over again until I eventually asked for a refund. Have not heard anything since. Have left messages but nothing. This started 20th of feb 2013 and its now 12/10/2014 its been long over a year. I do not have any art, no sketch, no preview, no refund all I got is shoddy excuses and no communication since the last link. I believe this person should NOT be commissioned they are unreliable will give you every excuse under the sun and just never get back to you. I will never commission them again.

Update: Found out he's been on tumblr and posting art he's been doing throughout the whole time I've been waiting for my commission. Look at this. Tumblr is NSFW http://madcarnival.tumblr.com/tagged/madcarnival/

Rather than reject again and make you resubmit, can you edit your dropbox links to https://dl.dropbox instead of https://www.dropbox? That way the screencaps can be readable to our members better.

Also, you copied in a bit of LJ's rejection for.

The links didn't work, which ones hun?

She means you need to edit each of your drop box links because none of them open up big enough to be readable unless you change the URLs.

So just edit each link at the start. Where the www normally is, put in dl instead. For instance, to get to the fullsize of the paypal screencap, you would use this URL instead of what you have: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/x8hja5k1m0nv5v1/PAYPAL PROOF.png?dl=0

Thank you will do that now!

Unfortunately, this is a pattern for Sil. He's entirely abandoned his FA account and while him and I were dating, I actually had users contacting me to try and get ahold of him.

He's very active on his tumblr (madcarnival) and when I told him way back when that people were looking for him, he told me to direct them to his tumblr so they could send him an ask there.

His art is beautiful and he's very quick at getting it done when he actually gets going, but his work ethic is less than great. I really wish I could say it was better.

Ye it doesn't make it ok. Its been going on for over a year, if you'd like to post him this link that will be great! I don't have a tumblr. I've been incredibly patient and nice. He does have lovely work that was never the issue, its the time he took and the bad communication. You shouldn't have had to deal with it he should have been active on both sites. XD

I'm 100% in agreement with you on that. I'm not at all trying to defend him. I'm just saying I'm not at all surprised and that you aren't the only one who has had issues with him regarding already paid for art.

I actually haven't been in contact with him for a few months. Without getting into details, his lack of communication is actually a big reason why we're no longer together. It isn't just customers he has trouble keeping up to date, it extends to his friends and everyone else too.

That wait and that attitude are excessive, especially with the latest journal on his FA page (even if it was a year ago.)

(ETA: Ugh I have a problem with my connection and double-posting, sorry!)

Might want to edit the journal to say the Tumblr link is NSFW.

Sorry you're having to go through this!
Oct. 20th, 2014 02:32 am (UTC)
sorry about that! Yeah I'll do that and thanks dear!
Oct. 21st, 2014 07:01 am (UTC)
Oi. Hopefully he will get his queue done. Its been over a year for me.
Oct. 21st, 2014 08:39 pm (UTC)
Well I've been waiting a year and eight nearly nine months. But the fact they are all happy on tumblr doing their own art when they are meant to do commissions is disgusting!
Oct. 23rd, 2014 06:03 pm (UTC)
so heres the deal- i used to be on friendlyish terms with silias and decided to send him an ask through tumblr, since he also owed me a commission that i completely forgot about lol... i couldnt even remember if i had paid, but i apparently did

he just posted a journal, saying hes contacting people about refunds, and seems very sorry about the situation because of personal issues hes had with it. either way, i hope you get yours soon!
