Advice needed.

I'm having a touch of trouble with an artist and thought i would ask you guys for advice on this.

Is it wrong of me to insist that an artist finishes a picture as was agreed upon at the time of commission, or am i the bad guy for not accepting something entirely different because the artist doesn't feel they had been paid enough to suit their prices 3.5 years later?

I had traded a physical for a 2-character image in mid-2011 and the image was only just finished in the last week and is nothing like what was 'paid' for, or even the correct number of characters...

So I ask, am I wrong to say that I don't consider the image acceptable, and is this something I should make a full beware about if contact with the artist fails?

Edit: I think I'll give them one more chance to make things right before I post the beware.. Should I let them know I intend to make a beware and how would I do so in a way that doesn't come off as threatening?

Update 3-20-15: The artist and I have come to an agreement, they will be refunding me in the form of sending the item (a pair of trading cards) back to me and putting this to rest.
