I have offered multiple times to refund him 100% in full and give him all the sketches I've done so far (about fifty different sketches, some even lined and 2-character), but he has absolutely refused in every instance. Honestly, it's to the point where I just want to pay him and be done with it, but he refuses to be refunded, and insists that I complete the commission (which at this rate could take another year or more).
What do I do? It was a huge mistake to do this auction, and I know that now. I just want to be done with this!
