Beware: Lyenuv / OutlandishStudios

WHO: Lyenuv, aka OutlandishStudios ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/outlandishstudios )

WHERE: Indyfurcon 2016 (August 26-28, 2016)

WHAT: Two-character traditional piece. Artist was advertising $25 pencil sketches. I asked what she would charge for a two-character piece, and she agreed to $25 + $12 = $37. I paid in cash.

WHEN: August 2016-ongoing

PROOF: Screenshots of my text messages with her:






EXPLAIN: I saw her in the artist's alley on Saturday and paid her $37 in cash for a two-character pencil sketch, and she asked me to text her references to the characters I wanted drawn, which I did. Later that day, I walked by just as the artist's alley was closing to see if she had even started yet. I also texted her again to let her know that I had misread my train ticket, and would actually be leaving the con a day early, so I would not be able to pick up the pic in person.

I also contacted her at a panel she held later in the day, and she assured me that she would get the pic done by the end of the con and get it out to me.

I texted her again on September 1 and asked for a progress report. She told me she was out of state and didn't have her art supplies with her, but would agree to do it digitally instead. I told her that was fine, and gave her my e-mail so she could send me the finished product.

I texted her yet again on October 13, and have yet to get a response.

Her FA and Tumblr have not been touched in over a year either.

Normally I would not consider two months a particularly long wait, but shouts on her FA page show that she has a history of ripping people off. Between this and the difficulty in contacting her, I'm pretty sure this is the best move for now.
Artist's beware has moved!

Wow are you serious? She was a guess of honor at IFC 2015 which was my first ever con. From now on I will pay from my art with with either card or paypal at cons.

I just did the other day. I will reply to this post if I hear any more.

I must be lucky because I got 3 full colored pics from her and even tried to get a pic from her in person this past Anthrocon, but I backed out at the last second.

I wish Lyenuv the best, even if the shouts on her FA page suggest otherwise.

Bumping to say that I saw Lyenuv at MFF. She recognized me immediately and told me that she had personal problems, which is why she didn't answer me. She realized that she owed me art, and told me she would get on it as soon as MFF was done. I will give her benefit of the doubt this time, but if I still don't hear from her again, I will update.
