Problems with Toichi

WHO: Toichi on Furaffinity.





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

WHAT: Digital art.

WHEN: September 4th, they commissioned me as I was holding special Feral dragon commissions.

None of my other customers have problems with these prices, but he gladly paid etc.
I finished it on September 11th and showed it to him.
Finished (NSFW): http://www.furaffinity.net/view/14509992/
SFW: http://gyazo.com/88d0c0fdfca9c8d321d9d8dd928396d1
There are two versions, one sfw and one nsfw.

PROOF: That same day this happened:
http://gyazo.com/f410cb7be992875659a83a1e25754225 (Sorry for the mess in the note, but I'm sure you get the point)
As you can see I was trying to be as patient as possible with this guy, and in the end, he was just expecting free art.

NOW a month later, he's stiring up trouble again.

http://gyazo.com/03ddffadbce2a4008931e4a2d18e420b
And I only find out he's tampered with the original art, which is against my TOS.

He says he feels horrible about the conflict, then goes on saying that my art is crap.
He was back and forth about this as you can see in the note, saying he loved it etc, then putting my stuff down.


EXPLAIN: I tried my best to accommodate him as you can see in this note: http://gyazo.com/f410cb7be992875659a83a1e25754225, I fixed things, and i gave him the amount he wanted in a refund.
Many people I've talked too have said my art is par with everything else I've done, and I really love this piece.

EDIT:
He is now posting about me on his Twitter: (He posted it after he emailed me.)
http://gyazo.com/f7b6701bf80afa070ab9297a63ea037a
And contacting me through Email.
http://gyazo.com/721f4d669081d991d3e83a1298147519

I have contacted neer himself about it, and his original journal was removed,
Neer posted this to me:
http://gyazo.com/2c7ab3d90475c59463aaeea40c65ca82

Right after he got the journal taking down. Toichi posted another, saying I was harassing him now. (I didn't get a chance to screen shot it as he removed it right after.)
The whole time, I calmly tried to reply to his notes, but then after I blocked him as I didn't want to deal with the stress, only to see that he had emailed me and was pestering me on there.

Please watch out for this guy, he's very confusing and I don't want anyone else to deal with this.

Wow...it looks a little bit like buyers remorse to me.
I'm appalled that he went as far as to publicly call your art "crap" and that you put him through "hell". I think you did everything you could have done for him. I'm sorry you had to go through such a bad situation...

It really put a damper on my spirits. I've been having trouble doing any kind of art and every time I get a note, my anxiety rises because I think it's something bad.
I just dont want this to happen to anyone else. I don't want them to go through what I've gone through.

Don't let one bad egg get you down! You are really talented and you shouldn't let this bad situation keep you from doing what you love. Also, there are always going to be bad clients no matter what field you work in. You handled it very professionally and remained calm through the whole thing!

My goodness, I am sorry you had to deal with that. I had similar a few years back. They pretty much wanted a refund because they realised they needed money for something else.

I got that out of them after much moaning about poor art quality ect. They told me everything from I was a terrible person, to a down right shitty artist XD

Don't let it get you down, its terrible when it happens but it is obvious you did your best to please them. In the end, they are just one bad commissioner, and unfortunately they pop up from time to time :)
