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.
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.

He is now posting about me on his Twitter: (He posted it after he emailed me.)
And contacting me through Email.

I have contacted neer himself about it, and his original journal was removed,
Neer posted this to me:

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.

Yep, he was all cheer and chipper then it all went to crap. I sent him many wips which he approved.

that's all on him if he approved it. especially after MULTIPLE WIPS THAT HE APPROVED. it sounds a lot like the sort of shitty behavior I'd see from folk wanting to squeeze apology art out of artists. "Wow you fucked up my commission so bad - how about a makeup? No? I'M GOING TO TELL EVERYONE YOU SUCK"
