Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Am I dumb or is the link going to a different beware than the header?
Dec. 15th, 2014 01:31 am (UTC)
Dunno how I managed to copy the wrong beware, but it's fixed!
Dec. 15th, 2014 01:27 am (UTC)
The original link leads to the wrong beware, FYI.

Without seeing the original images linked in the post this almost seems to warrant a beware for the original poster. They seemed to expect the art almost instantly, did I miss something here?

I know it's a bit of a bother, but you can type in the links as you see them. If I have the time tomorrow I might rehost them.

Links in order:


It seems as though the OP wants their art in a hurry, BUT, in the OP's defense, the artist did say they'd start on it right away, and her art looks like it could be done within fairly short order; like there's no hugely detailed backgrounds or highly detailed fur texture and such. So 2 weeks without even a thumbnail or sketch?

And they do seem to be on-line continuously, though they don't have a lot of uploads to their FA within that period. The "Oh it's not me it's a friend using my account" excuse never really flies though, it's usually just that; an excuse. Especially considering the nature of the activity on littleredloli's FA account.

Between the OP commissioning her and today, littleredloli seems to have offered freebies 3 times including 1 freebie stream, and has advertised icon commissions and a YCH, the latter of which has also been finished. So they seem to think they have time to take on new work, which means they have no excuse to not just get the OP's commission done and over with.

Normally I'd be leery of someone asking for a refund within 2 weeks of paying, but in this case, the artist doesn't appear terribly reliable. I can only theorize the OP deleted the post in trade for their art or a refund (which is also skeevy since it allows the artist to get away with poor business practices).

What really throws me off about this whole thing is the Tumblr cap. Why on earth is your "friend" answering your asks?

haha awkward... littleredloli often commissions me, lately its been these $5 sketches ive been offering on and off as warmups. just tonight they ordered one, but in the past few weeks have ordered multiples. sooo... i mean, they have money apparently, did OP ever ask for a refund? might be the best option here.

(Copypasting the same message everyone else is getting, even though I sort of know you?)
If you're interested, I posted the actual accounts of what happened below, not the botched recounts from this shady commissioner. The commissioner did not even commission art from me, as the first point.

Not at all the correct story.
Alright, time for my side of the story.

Let me say that, first and foremost, this user did not commission me as an artist. He's being completely and utterly misleading about that. He commissioned me for photographs and a video of myself, doing adult acts. I'd never done it before, but I was desperate and needed money to pay bills (because adult life).

I sent him an email after the one where I'd said that he could either send the money now, or wait until after I was done, stating that I would actually be more comfortable if he did not send it until after he had his pictures, because I work better that way, and it's less stressful for me. He did not even acknowledge that I sent it, and ignored it.

At some point or another, he started stalking me. I'm not sure at what point this started happening, because I don't have logs of it. But it was before he asked for his refund the first time.
When I told him that I had a new roommate move in unexpectedly, that was entirely true. My mate's friend suddenly had nowhere to go, so we went in two days from having a pretty damn cozy-close apartment to ourselves, to having a third person as well, who was sort of bad about personal space things. Life also threw a lot of shit my way, such as me having to drive 5 hours to visit my mother for a weekend to help with a bunch of cleaning and home-preparation for a new baby.
Anyhow, about the stalking.

From my Tumblr page, this user somehow found my Furaffinity page. As far as I can tell, the only thing linking the page to me at all are a couple pictures of my fursona, and none of them mention my username. I received a follow from his furaffinity account. (http://www.furaffinity.net/user/enkidu6)
As you can see, the account has literally nothing on it, and has no signs of being used for more than a day. He left a comment on a photo that I posted, with lewd descriptions of the pictures that he ordered, and demanded to know why he had not gotten them yet. I hid it, because it was totally uncouth and not appropriate for being said in public? He should have noted me about it instead of leaving such a thing. I chose to ignore it at that point (dumb idea) because I was honestly just really pissed about it, and planned on emailing him about that the next day.

The next day rolled around, and he somehow found his way to my private Twitter account, which is almost exclusively used to communicate with offline friends. There's no link to it on either of the former sites (being Furaffinity and Tumblr). He tweeted at me there, on another completely unused but for a day account (https://twitter.com/Enkidu61). I'm not sure why the tweet doesn't show up, though it might be because I promptly deleted and reported the tweet for being harassing and from someone who I now believed was stalking me.

At some point, I sent him that message on Tumblr, pretending to not be me. I know, lying, not cool, but I honestly can NOT deal with this stuff well in the slightest, and he had not listened to any of the emails that I sent him or completely legitimate reasons as to why I could not do these pictures right away, I kind of blanked and went into protection mode.

The day after that message was sent, he failed to mention conveniently, that he stalked me on my PRIVATE FACEBOOK PAGE. For offline friends and family ONLY. There is no link, whatsoever, to any of my other websites either to or from that page. It has my full name, my address, basically all my identifying information. THAT is when I knew that, without a doubt, this guy was seriously creepy, and I wanted nothing to do with him. I actually had to lock myself into my bedroom to take his damn pictures (and I managed to make my mate really worried, because I was kind of freaked out and crying, and was far too ashamed and embarrassed to tell him what I was doing), because I didn't have the $30 to refund him back, and I knew that if I blocked him in one place, he'd pop up in another like had kept happening. (1/2)

Re: Not at all the correct story.
He even popped himself up on my Weasyl (which hasn't been touched since April), and as of me literally just checking, my Inkbunny as well, which also had not been touched since April. Note that while my Weasyl is probably mentioned in a journal of mine, my Inkbunny account has never been told to anyone off of that website. The username isn't even the same. He did get his pictures, and then the final email he sent me was "pleasure doing business with you" with a smile at the end of it. I told him to never contact me again, because I refused to deal with psychopathic internet stalkers, to which he just responded with another smile.

I also just checked, and he decided to post the pictures up onto his tumblr, with absolutely no anything towards me, not even a blog name mention in a tag, not that it was a commission, not anything. I also just realized, he posted the video to an extremely popular porn website, all without my permission.
At this point, I actually just /do not/ know what to do about this.

EDIT: OP HAD GOTTEN HIS PICTURES A WEEK BEFORE HE EVEN POSTED THIS, YET MADE NO MENTION OF EVER RECEIVING THEM. Here's a screencap of the email (with email addresses blacked out) as proof. (http://gyazo.com/579b9f5d21e9b6a3aabbb4515200e92b)

now given littleredloli's explanation, does anyone else get skeevy feels from his original post, where he put 'out of all of the artists i've commissioned this was the worst experience'... i'm kind of concerned if he's done this to other people in the same vein of stalking and demanding adult pictures and videos..? 8(

definitely someone to watch out for regardless.. i wonder if there's a way to find his ip through any of the sites, i doubt fa would comply but weasyl, inkbunny, etc? might be willing to see and consider keeping him off of their sites?

I know it's a sensitive issue, but I would rather things like discussing getting personal information not be discussed here on AB, please.

Just need to put this here: The above mod and I have been talking, and I've decided that even though it was offered that this could be deleted, I want to leave it up, as a way to show people of the OPs skeevy behavior, and to have my side of the story known.
Dec. 17th, 2014 07:24 pm (UTC)
Have you been able to refund him yet? So as to get rid of him (insomuch he doesn't just continue to harass you anyway, even though you don't owe him anything anymore).

I can't help thinking it might be fair to Lilredloli to add a 'beware: enkidu6' tag on this? He lied in his original beware about the facts of the purchase and etc.

Unless I've misunderstood the explination, here? I admit being on more painkillers than usual so may have missed a glaring fact, but this does look like it was a beware against the buyer who lied about what they bought, and also lied about getting what they bought. And posted a beware just to try and be nasty? Or force communication from Lrl who had ended communication.

I dunno, doesn't seem resolved actually sums up the situation(and I know AB has to be careful with tags because there is a tag limit) but I can't help feeling a beware against enkidu whould be deserved here.

Mod Comment
We decided against it in order to prevent any further harassment against the Artist.
Dec. 21st, 2014 01:24 am (UTC)
Im so deeply sorry you had to go through that, Littleredoli. I hope that, since its /over/(hope it is?) that you can finally move on. Ive never seen anything like this before, its such a difficult case, and I really have to give you respect for deciding to keep this beware up.
