Beware: BlueBreed

WHO: BlueBreed

WHERE: InkBunny - https://inkbunny.net/BlueBreed (NSFW)

WHAT: $10 colored single character image

WHEN: Payment was agreed upon and sent on April 5, 2016. As of now, the artist hasn't responded to any of my attempts to contact them.

A tweet I sent to him asking him about the status of the commission queue - http://i.imgur.com/DCwSk1X.png

His old Journal about offering refunds, where I posted about messaging him a day after I tweeted to him - http://i.imgur.com/nInfpih.jpg

A second message chain I sent him in case he wasn't able to see the original one for some reason - http://i.imgur.com/v4wtuI9.png

EXPLAIN: BlueBreed had a limited-time special going on for $10 colored commissions. After sending the payment on April 5th, he put me on his commission list. On the June 29th, he posted a journal saying that people who hadn't received as much as a sketch from him can ask for a refund because he was gonna be busy with work and school for a while. I decided to wait on it because I understand that artists are still people and things can't always go as smooth and fast as expected.

After a few months and seeing a handful of images posted along with a journal for Pay-What-You-Want sketches, I decided to ask him for an update on October 13th just to make sure I haven't been forgotten about, and never received an answer. He was doing streams and working on personal Halloween stuff while posting journals and Tweets, so it's not like he was off the grid. I thought that maybe he just hadn't been paying attention to his messages on InkBunny, so I sent him a tweet on October 25th asking him about the commission and that I had messaged him a little while back. Still no response.

I still gave him the benefit of the doubt for some reason, so I sent a different message asking about a refund on October 31st in case something happened to the first message and he couldn't access it, and then another message on November 4th to try and get his attention. He's still been streaming and decently active, but refused to even give me an update on a service I paid for.

I see that he's just been working on personal stuff and streaming mostly, even though a previous journal said that he'd be spending all of his free time working on overdue commissions. I filed a chargeback with my bank, but I haven't heard anything for a bit so I guess it's dropped. I'm just glad i'm only out $10 and didn't get screwed over more harshly.

Oh hey, I came here looking to see if someone else had the same problem as me. Looks like I'm not the only one that got burned.

Unfortunately I paid for three commissions, and now he's actively ignoring any attempts at contact.

That sucks. Did you pay for the $10 special commissions a while back or was it full price stuff? and how long have you been waiting?

I've been waiting for about as long as you have. They were the $10 commissions. I went over to his IB page and basically just made a bunch of noise about it where other people would see, and he FINALLY made a public response about. https://inkbunny.net/journalview.php?id=261094

I was in the same boat (and still am really) I commissioend a NSFW piece from them last year and am still waiting. They never replied to me via FA and I only just seen their journal saying more IRL stuff is happening. How much longer do I have to wait?
