WHO: Lambomill/Quickmill/Fatmill/Cozrion

WHERE: http://lambomill.deviantart.com/, http://quickmill.deviantart.com/

WHAT: A $15 flat colored bust of my Wyvern character


WHEN: January 2014 - Now

PROOF:
Note To Lambomill asking for the commission, as well as agreeing on payment and me stating that I sent the payment:

I Send a Note to Lambomill on their new account on DA ( Quickmill) and they read it, but don't reply:
https://dl.dropbox.com/s/tpth9ntoqnvisem/New%20DA%20Note%20Lambomill%20CENSORED.png?dl=0

EXPLAIN: I wasn't really expecting things to go this way, I've been a fan of Lambomill's work for a long time. However, I have sent
them several notes on several accounts and they have either read the note and not responded, or ignored my messages completely. I asked
if they could either finish the Commission that I payed for, or refund me the $15. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, they have chosen
to not respond. I would be less irked if they would just reply to me and let me know what the heck is going on.

January 6, 2014:So first I send Lambomill a note in January asking for a flat colored bust Commission of one of my characters.
they accept and I send them the payment. (see links above)

January 18, 2014: I wait a bit, I almost forget about the Commission completely because I haven't heard any sort of information from Lambomill. I see that they mention something about moving to Furaffinity, so I follow them on FA and send them a note there asking about it. They respond saying they didn't save the Commission information and to resend it to them, so I do. (see links above)

I get absolutely no contact from Lambomill after that point, I try to send them several more notes on FA but they continue to ignore them
Febuary: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/80g6109wumaoxym/Another%20Lambomill%20FA%20Note%20CENSORED.png?dl=0
March: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/d69ezug9w6eb3oe/More%20FA%20Lambomill%20Notes.PNG?dl=0

After March I kind of just gave up for a while, but I was also dealing with a lot of personal things, so I forgot about it
almost completely, but I also didn't want to seem too pushy so I tried backing off thinking they would eventually get back to me.
Sadly this..didn't happen.

December 15, 2014: I send Lambomill a note on their new DA account hoping that they will respond and this whole ordeal would be over.
Instead, they read the note but choose not to respond.

The only reason I am posting this is because I have no other choice. I contacted Lambomill/Quickmill several times and they
have rudely ignored me. Hate to say it, but I no longer respect them as an artist or a person. If they would have just owned up
to their mistake, this AB wouldn't be getting posted. I really hate resorting to these measures, but I'm not taking shit from
anyone anymore. Weither or not I admire them.
At this point I just want a refund, but they wont even give me that.

EDIT(12/21/14): Quickmill posted a new journal Titled "2015 Commissions". I left a comment in hopes they will respond
Journal: http://quickmill.deviantart.com/journal/2015-Commissions-501631747
Screenshot: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/9tmo068x0qjkl36/screencapture-quickmill-deviantart-com-journal-2015-Commissions-501631747.png?dl=0

EDIT (same day as above): I get a comment from Quickmill telling me to send them an email that is listed in the journal. I do, however I
am yet to get a response. Hopefully within the next few days I will receive one.

EDIT Dec 21 2014- Jan 25 2015+: On December 21st I send Lambomill/Quickmill/Cozrion (his new DA name) an email asking for an update on my Commission. He responds and..well.. I guess the way to describe it is he tried to bribe me into not getting mad at him? he mentioned doing a Full-Body instead of a Bust in exchange for having to wait so long. I agree, figuring it would make up for the wait. A few days pass and he asks me if he could do line-less instead since they wanted to experiment. Again, I agreed since I thought he might be more willing to do it if he had some artistic freedom. That was on December 31, 2014. I send him another email on January 8th 2015 in hopes to get an update, but I was given no response. I sent another Email Yesterday on January 25th, 2015 stating that I would like a refund. I'll give him about a week, and then from that point I can only assume that Mill has been playing me for a fool the entire time and has no intention of doing my Commission, or anyone elses.

Have you used their e-mail? I've noticed that they said that is their preferred way of contact.

"Contact:

Right now, the best way to contact me is via e-mail. My notes do not work here or on websites like deviantART and Tumblr thanks to my browser. My e-mail is listed on my profile and anyone may send me an e-mail at any given time regardless of the reason, however, giving me your username and a brief reason for the e-mail is recommended as it will just be trashed otherwise."

though I cannot find their e-mail listed on their FA.

Hmm. I don't see that anywhere on their DA profile, so I don't know how I was supposed to know. Even so, I don't know how that makes sense
because they were able to respond to me beforehand?

That just doesn't make sense to me

I can try to contact them via email but I doubt it will change anything

On top of that, it clearly shows that they read my note on DA.
They could have very well tried to find a way to contact me if they couldn't note me back. Heck they could have written a Journal or something, but this isn't the case.

No excuses

As I said, this is on their FA profile. I understand that you're upset and that it's not your fault that you have to track them down for a response but please don't try to come at me aggressively.

Hmm
I've never had them ignore a commission from me, but it has taken them a long time to issue a refund I regards to a commission I ordered in Dec, 2014. I've had them acknowledge both notes I've sent through DA and FA about it, but no progress as of yet. I know they did recently move, so I'm just waiting on that to finish before I approach them on the matter again.

Good luck!

Re: Hmm
I did sort of get a better response by sending an email, but
they wanted to change it to a full-body drawing to make up for the wait and then asked my permission to turn it into a lineless drawing (still full body). Still waiting to see if that goes anywhere, hoping it will.

Re: Hmm
(typo to my original post, it was Dec 2013 not 2014 - The new year still hasn't registered)

Keep people updated?? Hopefully it's dealt with swiftly, and hopefully you will get what's owed to you.

Re: Hmm
I will if I either get the art piece, or they stop contacting me.
I'm going to give them a bit of time but it seems that they are finding time to do personal art but not my Commission so...
Just giving them a few days in hopes they will get to it.

I commissioned them December 2012 and haven't gotten my art, nor refund. I have contacted her via FA, Da, email... I got empty promises or no response at all.
I actually had already an a_b journal made of them but for some reason it was never published. :0

I just recently had someone else note me on my DA telling me a similar story, him saying he would do it and then disappearing for a while,
using work as an excuse. I understand people have lives, but I've asked for a refund so that this whole ordeal could be over with and he hasn't responded.
Maybe you should try to submit it again? sometimes a few things get missed, such as forgetting to censor some important information. They usually send you an email saying why it can't be accepted
