Arists Beware: Dog-Bone

Text: WHO: Dog-Bone, DogBoneArtwork, Leachymonster


WHAT: Reference sheet

WHEN: April 20th 2017: Commissioned and paid. April 28th: Received first version which was inaccurate. April 30th: Received second version which now had a filter over it. May 1st: Opened a claim with Paypal and got refunded

EXPLAIN: Long story short: commissioned a reference of my character. Got a reference with some really random colors. Asked her to fix it. If she changed the color of the eyes, nose/lips, and tongue, I’d be content. Got two more versions of the same picture with filters over them. Got told she didn’t have the sai file anymore. Asked for a refund. Eventually got a refund. She then modified the pic a bit and sold the character after tweeting about it.

Long story long: I commissioned dog-bone during one of her weekly openings. Provided two references (one: two: ). A week later, received a reference ( ) which had the wrong colors (comparison: ). Asked her to fix it and sent the comparison ( ). Got sent the same picture, but this time with a filter over it ( ). Then another ( )
Noted her mentioning the mistakes again and asked if there was an issue: ( ). Was told she doesn’t have the SAI file anymore. Asked for a refund ( )

Told she doesn’t do refunds and that she delivered as close as possible ( ). I disagreed ( ) and replied to this note telling her I would be filing a claim with paypal which she replied to then blocked me ( )
I got a refund.

She tweeted about it with some cherry picking: and then a warning (warning is fair enough though)
The design she then sold for $85:

PROOF: Linked a ton, but for here’s a comparison of the three versions and a picture of my character to see how wrong the colors are:
And some coloring detail:
