Artist Beware: TinyArtz

WHO: TinyArts

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tinyartz

WHAT: $5 Digital Badge

WHEN: May 3.

PROOF: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qtcvsgj01i7s1s6/Screenshot%20%2836%29.png?dl=0

EXPLAIN: Saw the add while browsing FA, thought it look cute, and bought a slot in a $5 dollar badge commission from the artist. A while later I saw that her Trello hadn't been updated in a while so I messaged her on FA. She told me that my commission was finished and that she would send it to me Wednesday because she was in the middle of a move. Well I actually gave her two additional weeks before messaging her again this time through telegram. She says sorry explaining that she's been going through a lot and that she asked her boyfriend to upload it. Then says she'll make sure that it gets to me this time. Well Waited again and to my surprise again nothing. Neither her nor her boyfriend's FA page have seen any activity in a while so I'm concluding the artist just bailed.

Current Mood:Cheated

I'll never understand artists who have completed the work, but just won't deliver them to clients. I hope you get it soon!

I admit in cases like that, I eventually start to assume the artist is being untruthful and the work isn't done and they're stalling, especially if there's not been hide nor hair of the commission. I don't understand the use of "it's done I just need to upload" as an excuse, though, because it makes no sense on a lot of levels unless the artist is suddenly having internet speed problems or can only access the Internet via a handheld device.

(Which I guess is possible! But feels so oddly specific as to be unlikely.)
