Beware Senpai/Wildfluffytoast

WHO: Wildfluffytoast/Senpai/

WHERE: FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/wildfluffytoast

WHAT: $10 fullbody shaded piece

WHEN: March 1, 2017

EXPLAIN: So I commissioned Senpai March 1st after one of her friends I was watching posted a journal about her offering cheap fullbodies and I thought it was a good deal. I commissioned two pieces. A two character for $10 and a three character for $15 for a total on $25. I sent my payment and on the third I received the two-character piece. Though it wasn’t the pose that I had asked for, I informed her on this and she agreed to redraw it once her other commissions were finished and to remind her.

On the 14th of March after her commission list was empty I did remind her like she asked me to do. I resent both refs and a pose example of what I was wanting. I waited about a month before asking for an update In April. The message was read, but never replied to. Following that I sent another message on May 1st and waited for a bit before messaging her on Facebook May 4th. (I realized a typo in the facebook message. I meant to say she haven’t replied.) I was told the line art was done and the piece would be finished in a bit. A 2 weeks later my May 1st note on FA finally got a reply informing me of a lost in the family and of her job.

Fast forward to June 23rd. I had gone onto Senpai’s FA page after some time and saw that she had not only made a ych, sold it, and completed it, but also done two pieces of personal art. Was a little annoyed with that seeing as how the ych was done it 3 days, but I was waiting for months. So I messaged her for an update on my redraw and got a reply on the 24th.

I’m not trying to be mean or an asshole. I understand that she recently had someone close to her pass away and I can understand needing time to grieve. I’m just seriously annoyed. I did ask for a certain pose which the artist admits to misunderstanding and agreed to redraw, but it is going into the 5th month since I paid her and she has to me the line are for the redraw is done, but I haven’t seen that or any other progress, yet she has now opened commissions for both art and fursuits.

Asking for update June 23rd: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xmn7176gtsv6hdb/Screenshot%20%2820%29.png?dl=0

Edit: I had a few people comment about my wording for the pose so I'm posting a screencap here. Also please know that these are the artist's actually prices just prices she had for a sale to earn quick money for an emergency.

UPDATE: So I decided to ask for an update on the redraw. This is the response I got: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2gjwor6g8riwoza/Screenshot_20170809-225305.jpg?dl=0
I can only assumed she lied when she said she did the line art. Both annoyed and not really surprised.

Reply I got today: https://www.dropbox.com/s/45zewd57geo117b/Screenshot%20%2850%29.png?dl=0

So either she lied or she lost it like she said, but only ask for the refs after I asked about an update. Annoyed either way.

FINAL UPDATE: So Senpai found the beware I made against her and a few hours later I received my art. Only with one thing. She saved the file at herestupidass. To that she tried to play it off as it just being a silly name and that she does it with all her files.

Well I don't know what you ended up getting but I would say that "presenting" is a niche jargon term. There's nothing in your description that really tells the artist that the characters are showing their butts if they aren't familiar with it. "Bending over" could equally mean a front view. I would suggest being more explicit if the pose is very important to you, and/or including a picture example of the kind of pose you are wanting. If you want the focus of the picture to be butts, I feel like "butts" should be in the description somewhere.

Now I can't really say that's what happened here or not, its very possible the artist just forgot to double check the description you have and thought they had remembered it.

edit: Sorry I should also mention that something like "presenting" is a word that makes some sense in plain english, so an artist unfamiliar with it would also be unlikely to google it. And if you did google it, you probably would just get the normal definition.

Even if you do know the term you can present breasts as well by bending over. The "panties" thing is the only real clue you wanted a butt pose, though in my experience it isn't unusual for commissioners to give information on stuff that wouldn't be seen in the pose they want. I'd usually ask some followup questions in that case, but I can see how someone could take it for granted.
