I’m new here and for a while I’ve been in a situation and I don’t really know what to do about it any longer. I don’t really want to badmouth this artist because I don’t know a lot about her and this is the only commission I ever asked from her so I can’t say this happens a lot with her… so yeah, here is my little tale:
So, a while ago I sent a note on DeviantART to the user LakotaSilver, it was sent May 27th, 2005. At the time she was interested in doing custom My Little Pony commissions and was curious if anyone was interested. So I have my own MLP character that I designed so I inquired about the price she would be asking for. When she replied it was a reasonable price so I accepted.
So at first she was very into it, we exchanged many notes and she was always punctual and at one point even sent me pictures of the progress which were looking amazing! So then one day I sent off the money to her snail mail style it it was nicely concealed, but strangely after I sent it she just stopped replying to me. I never knew if she received my cash and she never spoke to me again. I sent her a few polite notes on DA and even got her AIM name off her DA page and IMed her asking again politely about it but she has never responded to one note or IM. I know that she has been on DA, on her page it says when she has last visited and it is always recent yet my notes have gone unread, and her name is ALWAYS up on my buddy list.
I just don’t know what to do anymore, I just can’t understand why she sent me pictures and went through all the work of ordering new hair and everything for this custom pony of mine. It was nearly done too, she was putting on the finishing touches then she just stopped talking to me. I really have no idea what to do anymore.
