Hey Ab. I need advice. I commissioned a two character nsfw piece from an artist and when I got it it had multiple anatomical errors. Like the female character in the piece looks like her back has been broken from the way she is positioned, her you-know-what looks not only huge but is off-centered, they also made the female character's legs too big for her body. There are a few small things wrong with the male as well. Would it be in bad taste to ask for the artist to re-draw it or to ask for a partial refund? Any advice would be amazing.

Update: I messaged the artist and politely told them that I was unhappy with the piece and pointed out each thing that was wrong as suggested by a commenter and explained that I would appreciate either a re-draw or a partial refund. They replied telling me that 'Well I am not use to drawing monster/partial human characters. However I will give you a partial refund.
I do request that next time you want a commission from me or any other artist though, to review their work and look to see if they are use to the image you are requesting to save yourself and the artist any undue stress.' and that I should have paid more attention during the stream. (My mistake as my internet was giving out) but they have agreed to pay be back half of what I paid within this week.

In my opinion not being used to a species doesn't excuse the anatomy but I digress.

Thank you so much everyone for the advice.

I'm glad you're getting a partial refund, I can see some anatomical issues in their other work, but the drop in quality is rather dramatic in your commission. And I feel like the worst of it could be fixed fairly easily with some cut&pasting and redoing some inks.

Did they ever post it in their own gallery? Artists have many reasons for not posting every commission they've done, but in this case I feel like the artist was at least somewhat aware of the subpar quality they delivered.

As a tip for the future, next time ask if you can continue it as a normal commission with a sketch approval stage if you have to leave the stream. It might have prevented this unpleasantness.
