EXPLAIN: Artist was met at Rainfurrest 2015 and agreed to a three-character commission done digitally and "take home", as the convention was coming to a close and there was insufficient time to have it get done before. The email containing the details of the commission was sent the very next day. Five emails requesting an update on the commission were sent out over the next seven months (from October 2015 to April 2016) with no replies. Refund invoice sent out on May 1. Emails were accompanied by shouts onto the artist's FurAffinity page (listed above), however those shouts and the shouts of other customers who had not been contacted seem to have been removed, though their correspondence to me over notes has been provided under proof.
