Arists Beware: Dog-Bone

Text: WHO: Dog-Bone, DogBoneArtwork, Leachymonster

WHERE: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/dog-bone
https://twitter.com/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: http://i.imgur.com/1PhwRpx.png two: http://i.imgur.com/AIlxaLC.png.png ). A week later, received a reference ( http://i.imgur.com/uyUt3Gb.png ) which had the wrong colors (comparison: http://i.imgur.com/QXUTmvn.png ). Asked her to fix it and sent the comparison ( http://i.imgur.com/2At59jd.png ). Got sent the same picture, but this time with a filter over it ( http://i.imgur.com/fH4FnuD.png ). Then another ( http://i.imgur.com/6hbBwbi.png )
Noted her mentioning the mistakes again and asked if there was an issue: ( http://i.imgur.com/ScyPXDc.png ). Was told she doesn’t have the SAI file anymore. Asked for a refund ( http://i.imgur.com/H492aIE.png )

Told she doesn’t do refunds and that she delivered as close as possible ( http://i.imgur.com/15NiNm3.png ). I disagreed ( http://i.imgur.com/6VUtz1Y.png ) and replied to this note telling her I would be filing a claim with paypal which she replied to then blocked me ( http://i.imgur.com/AbNMt9b.png )
I got a refund.

She tweeted about it with some cherry picking: http://i.imgur.com/oJaRDBR.png and then a warning http://i.imgur.com/bCG7CRL.png (warning is fair enough though)
The design she then sold for $85: http://i.imgur.com/jRNaxPI.png

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: http://i.imgur.com/sCA5vuV.png

Echoing everyone else, that is REALLY unprofessional :/ You were paying a good amount of money for a reference sheet, and she has the audacity to try and beat around the bush when you provided her EXACT colors???

Worse of all, going through her twitter you see so many people siding her, excusing it as "Oh well when the picture gets shaded, flat colors won't matter much anyways". Honestly, her following scares me if they can excuse her not using the colors provided to her.
