WHAT: Digital Art. 10 Page full color comic with added back ground.
WHEN: The initial conversation began through notes starting on March 2nd, 2013 details enclosed below (read from bottom to top).

The agreed upon amount was provided in a 250$ amount and then an additional background was requested at the cost of 50$ and payment for that was also provided.
After a year with no posting of progress, I inquired about the commission.
Then after another year I inquired again (within the past few days).

EXPLAIN: I commissioned the above artist for a service, paid in full and never received the agreed upon comic. I did receive the subscription detailed in the deal to the artist's webiste, but that portion is small by comparison (and I cared little for it).
I fully recognize that in the last bit where I requested a refund that I could certainly be perceived as flippant or arrogant, however bear in mind that this was after 2 years of zero progress from the artist when the artist advised it would come in small deliveries. 2 Years is beyond a reasonable duration for the agreed upon terms and I feel as though I had been less than rude about the initial inquiries. In addition, the artist certainly had time to complete the commission as they were free to fulfill sketch commissions from myself.
As I waited patiently for the completion of my primary commission I report that I did commission the same artist several times for 5 dollar sketches .
I submit that the artist was perfectly capable of completing my initial commission and that I was not being unreasonable with my request for a refund or fulfillment of the commission. There were no extenuating circumstances that prevented the artist from doing my commission.
Please be advised of my experience and beware.
