Kovu The Tiger

Okay, so I've been putting this off for a long while, hoping that things would clear up, but they haven't.

May 18, Kovu Tiger requested a full colored, shaded, image with a BG for his now ex-mate.
May 20, I finished the sketch, and he said everthing was great. Later that day I gave him my PayPal, which was what we had agreed on, only to find out that he didn't have it, so I gave him my mailling adress so that he could just mail me a money order. Told him that after I got payment I would finish the image. HE said that he had mailed it out and would let me know, two days later I still didn't have any word so I sent him a friendly reminder about it, he replied with somethign about money getting tight and so he couldn't pay right away.

June 1st, he asked to get the sketch again, because he deleted it or something, so I resent it. After which him and his ex broke up. After which he brought up not paying for the commission, as it was a gift (Which was just a picture of himself) for his mate, and they broke up so it was pointless. I told him that he still needed to pay for a digital sketch, and he eventually said that he did want the image finished completly, so he would pay for that.
June 5th, Kovu was in a chat room, talking about not paying because he didn't have to pay if he didn't want to. After a long debate, which involed him telling me I "Finished the image too fast!", amung other things, my boyfriend straydog, stepped in and said that I should give him till July 5th to pay.

July 5th rolled around and I still had not gotten a check in teh mail, so I confronted him about it. His reply was that he didn't want to so he didn't have to.

Then today, I talked to him about it again, in which Kovu stated "I'm not using the image so I don't have to pay you for anything."

I've just giving up on this, as he's clearly imature, and I just can't stand seeing "But I'm not using it!" or, "Well my family are cops!" So I just wanted to give a heads up to everyone, do not draw for this person.
