Beware: Kij3k

WHO: kij3k

WHERE: http://kij3k.deviantart.com

WHAT: 4 flat colored full body images

WHEN: payment was sent june 12th 2016 http://i.imgur.com/kzZdMOg.png

EXPLAIN: I commissioned this person to draw 4 images in june as shown above. I changed the characters june 28th since they had not gotten any work done http://i.imgur.com/i5QUHp4.png In july they said that since they took so long theyd like to shade them, which i responded with this http://i.imgur.com/eIS7sIB.png and that day they got the first one done http://i.imgur.com/iBpTChf.png
The trouble started not long after when they said their computer died and they'd have to take a hiatus http://i.imgur.com/Qebo8tr.png so i decided to ask about my commission and if i would get a refund. I was told that id have to wait http://i.imgur.com/2WwmgT9.png
They returned in september and got a lot of work done but still did not get to mine. In november I sent them a note asking why and got this as a response http://i.imgur.com/F0RYYpg.png once i gave them the references it didnt take them very long to finish another one of mine http://i.imgur.com/WAwaJev.png as you could see here http://i.imgur.com/q6FElBE.png there was a misunderstanding, i mixed up notes and thought that i had paid for shading instead of them offering it for free. I let it go pretty fast, and only found the original notes with what i commissioned later on. Only a few days later they posted this http://i.imgur.com/ZkNHgwX.png though they did not link me to it, i found it on my own while checking their gallery. I figured everything was going well but then realized i hadnt heard from them for a month.
I left them a comment here asking http://i.imgur.com/lq7230B.png and they redirected me to their journal here http://i.imgur.com/5z3xoDc.png
They have a comment on their page saying not to ask about it http://i.imgur.com/krjHDcy.png

A big reason as to why I'm making this beware is because I noticed them taking on more work despite owing me art for about 10 months as you can see here http://i.imgur.com/q5BSvAD.png and here http://i.imgur.com/H925fgn.png

PROOF: everything should be posted above in order.

UPDATE: they posted a journal in response here http://i.imgur.com/rdIc85q.png

UPDATE2: I reached out again via note and i gave them the references again. hopefully it works out now.

UPDATE3: I got one of them. not resolved yet but progress. http://kij3k.deviantart.com/art/good-habits-677623981 im unable to post screencaps at the moment sorry

UPDATE4: Last one was completed this is resolved http://kij3k.deviantart.com/art/cant-feel-my-eyes-680473035

Re: ......I don't think i have much to say.
Looks like that journal has since been deleted, however the attitude alone that you're in the wrong for being frustrated is beware-worthy. If they think it's okay to behave this way to you, there's no reason for people reading this to think they won't behave that way with them as well. It's certainly not something I would be willing to risk, and that's entirely on the artist for their behaviour, not you for posting the beware.

Unfortunately, a lot of people watching them on DA will simply take their side without putting much thought into it. To them, it'll always be your fault just for upsetting an artist they like. All you can do is ignore them and continue trying to gain a resolution with the artist (and definitely don't fall for their attempt to extort you into deleting your beware, you likely wouldn't get what you were owed regardless, this has come up before). Good luck!

Re: ......I don't think i have much to say.
Actually i took a screencap of the whole journal with the comments but the op has a cap of the journal as well. It's not surprising how the artist and their friends reacted to this especially the rude post on here.
