EXPLAIN: It started in April 2013, This artist posted a journal stating that if you but one you get one free. Knowing this artists talent I decided to take the offer and also commented a friend about it. To which he decided to comish her as well.

Alls well and the artist notified me that she will do them as soon as she can. I don’t usually bother artist but I decided to take another slot (since I’ve previously comished her and I trusted this artist) and she said she’d get it underway, unfortunately she said she had complications based on her equipment and family situation, something that I can understand.

However things started to take a dive after she stated that she would get them done in a weekend, ASAP as she stated. However I saw no progress, any attempts made to communicate and figure out anything were met with nothing, she picked up on ‘em and read the notes I sent over Deviantart. However I found it odd that she was doing artwork months after she stated shed do my own.

So she had moved to Weasyl, again I noted her there asking what’s going on. No reply, however it would seem another person had fallen for her, the same deal, she did a trade however. This will play a part later on as we talked. But in the meantime she didn’t reply. Only read. Then some months later she stated she would return after health complications to deviantart. Again I understood this but was a bit unsure since she was uploading artwork in other sites.

Moving on, I kept on asking (usually waited a month or so, since I don’t like bothering an artist) but saw they were only read. Never replied. She had made a new character named Buckthorn, I didn’t pay much attention to this until years later I stumbled upon her on FA, same character, same style. Never let me know she changed accounts or anything of the sort.
So I sent her a note, again no reply but she did read it. A month after I sent her another note and commented on her shoutpage. No response, I sent the person whom had the same situation and she told me she did respond to her and that it was the same artist and they were checking up on how to fix the dilemma, upon getting this information I decided to try it again. To my surprise she had put me on her blocklist. I guess she got tired of me messaging her asking for my end of the deal. It’s a shame really since I trusted her and I would have continuously done so over these past 2 years.

Im currently trying to contact this artist, she posted a journal stating if any art is owed to note her. Can’t do that while blocked so I used another account. I also tried adding her skype, I do get “bucky” referencing her new character instead of the old one tho the account is from the old character.

managed to talk to her manager since she doesn’t want to deal with this herself and am currently awaiting a refund because ive been told they aren’t doing well financially and will be taken care of soon. Deadline is suppose dot be on September, I appreciate I got someone to talk to about this but all in all im still somewhat concerned wether this will go through or not.

Edit 10/17/2015:

Nothing came through, still avoiding me, at this point i cant do anything. Seriously dissapointing.

Im glad she did what you paid for
i was not so lucky, i actually comished her before with no problems at all. but then she pulled this and well. you can see why id be frustrated. she no longer talks to me and has someone else do it for her.she blocks and ignores any attempt i do to contact her. i certainly wouldnt reccomend her. unless you do a "finish what i ask for first then i pay you" cause to me shes lost every speck of trust.

Re: Im glad she did what you paid for
It'd be for the best. i actually found there are quite a few people whom shes ripped off and some gave up all in all. well, in any case im glad you weren't a victim

I have very vague memories about Buckthorn but they drew me a free piece on f-list about a year ago, and then disappeared for awhile. And I think I heard from other mutual contacts that they had owed art and such. But I can't remember much, I guess I am glad I never bought anything from them.

I knew them when they where popcornkitten on DA. I don't remember much since it's been years but I remember they seemed a bit off. I loved their art style and they did a few pieces for me way back when. I didn't know they moved to buckthorn though.

yeah i rememebr that too
she changed ot to Cinnamonkitt later on. i myself enjoy her style and all. but after the way she ignored and changed pages and all of that its really not worth it. i would recomment anyone to stay away as the way she conducts businesses is pretty bad. focusing on others comishes leaving others to dust, ignoring people asking whats wrong, i mean she really blocked me. that really pisses me off. she still wont talk to me, has her manager talk to me.

If you'd like I can try to talk to her about this, I'm pretty good friends with her and it's shocking to see her do this :/
