New account: Rattalons
Unread note
Proof of being the same person: 1 2

So on the 20th of this month I had not heard anything back from her and neither DA or two FA accounts had been active for just over two weeks so I didn't decided to message her on FA. Shortly after sending said note I decided to try searching for her else where and by search I mean go through the first two google pages. To my surprise she wasn't hard to find at all. But I did find her under a different name of DA though. The link to the same stream page on both the 0cean FA account and the new Rattalons DA account confirm it to be her. After going through the account I discovered she had been active there for the whole while her other accounts were dead. In fact she was online an hour before I found said account. I've seen she has done an art trade and a free sketch stream as well as personal art.

I wanted to wait a while and see it she would respond to my note of FA just to be nice and give her a chance. Well the note still has not been read and the old accounts have not been active in almost 4 weeks now. I may try messaging her new account, but at this point I feel like this may have been an attempt to run and may happened if I confront her about it again. So yeah...guess those last three pictures are never going to be done.

Edit 12/29/16: So I need to clear up a lot because apparently there was a huge misunderstand of what was happening. So firstly no this wasn't her trying to run off or anything. She had just migrated to DA more it seems. Although an update on her FA page would have helped, but that's all I can really fault her on. I recent the third piece of art today and was told the last two are all most finished and should get to me today or tomorrow.

I feel as though I jumped the gun when posting the original beware about her. I've been scammed before by an artist who did the similar things as this and I guess I only got paranoid that it would happened again. 0cean is a nice artist and since I can't delete my beware here I'll seems have to update it and let everyone know that I was wrong about the whole situation.

Update 1/21/17: Well I guess I should update this because I've been forgetting to for a while. I'm not up to 4 of the 5 pictures promised. That's good, but it seems the artist is back to doing adopts, ych, and personal art. Haven't heard anything from her since Dec. 31. Honestly at this point I'm just thinking fuck it, I got 4 of 5. If the last one isn't done by the end of this month I'll decide to ask for an update or just tell her to forget about it and move on. All in all really disappoint in the artist. I know they've had personal life problems and such, but I just never thought I'd be waiting over a year. Granted had I not received the sketchbook itself I would have just file a paypal claim and moved on. Lesson learnt.

This beware makes me feel sad. You come across like such a nice understanding customer who is trying to give your artist the benefit of the doubt, and I am seeing a lot of things going on here, with this lady I am not liking. First, is that note she sent you, that sounds like she will rush things, https://www.dropbox.com/s/z9rnm07weqqq5po/Screenshot%20%28155%29.png?dl=0.

Second, is her no refunds policy, as I mentioned in the other beware.

Third, is the secret rattalons account. I am of the belief that an artist should keep up with their accounts while they have pending commissions and not become difficult to reach. A client shouldn't have to gone tracking down the artist.

And lastly, even though you say that this isn't about you, https://www.dropbox.com/s/5n4gy8k1tz5p0yw/Screenshot%20%28159%29.png?dl=0, in the first beware you at first thought it was about you. It made you unhappy and it has the potential to make other customers unhappy. If she wants to rant like that, it would be better off done in private with her friends.

After reading your bewares, I come away feeling like this is an artist I would feel very uneasy about working with.

This is pretty much how I feel. I can see why you felt you jumped the gun, OP, but personally I'm glad the beware was posted- I wouldn't want to do business with this person at all. Between the no-refunds clause, the rude communication, having to chase him down and the venting journal, this is not a professional I would want to purchase from.

Edited for incorrect pronoun usage, checked his page and saw I was using the wrong one. My bad!

This might not be something important to the beware but they go by he/him not she/her.

Even if this was a misunderstand the fact that you had to find this secret account as well just to contact her. as well some of the other warning signs in the previous beware is very concerning.

She seems to be bartering for adoptables with custom art bundles, doing a lot of work, then saying she is too stressed and bailing. http://comments.deviantart.com/1/649718101/4279965252 Seems like getting new adopts is more important to her than working on her commissions.

While 4 weeks isn't that long I can understand why you would jump the gun, her no-refund policy bothers me more trough

If it were me, I would either insist on the artwork or ask for a refund of the remaining picture, even though they have that horrible no refunds rule.
