You know... I dont often commission people... when I do, they're people
I respect and adore the art of... however Orange04 is reeeeeeeally getting to me... I commissioned her a couple weeks before Slim (my former girlfriend) and my
one year anniversary for a commemoration picture... and she said her
wacom died (convienently) before the due date... I figgered, okay, I
can wait awhile longer, sure... She said she had it sketched on paper
but then there was NO WAY to apparantly get an image... batteries in
cameras were dead, no scanner, etc. Finally, she got her 'new wacom',
about a month or two later... and says my commission is INKED. So I'm
like WEWT. Then, no work on it.... and still, none... but she's
uploading personal work, other commissions... and even things for
Second Life. I still havent gotten my commission. I contacted her after
Slim and I broke up to maybe alter the theme a bit so it would still be US but less romantic but NO response. I
tried to get ahold of her online, through several forums, etc... still
no response. I'm getting really ticked especially because after such an
emotional time she couldnt even have the decency to respond to my
request for a theme change. She ignores my IMs, emails, PMs etc....

anyone know her personally? If you do, would you PLEASE tell her that I
am requesting either a finished image or a FULL REFUND as I have not
seen even a sketch, which I seroiusly doubt ever having existed.

Orange04, last I heard, was really busy with real life, and wasn't posting any new art.
Sep. 3rd, 2006 02:11 pm (UTC)
She's posted a couple things to FA recently. I don't know any more than that.
Sep. 4th, 2006 12:18 am (UTC)
And as far as I can tell, these are all old images. Some artists do have real lives (SHOCKING!) XD
Sep. 4th, 2006 12:21 am (UTC)
Yeah, but artists who take money from people generally (or are at least supposed to) do the work they promised to. And on her LJ they were posted as recent sketches. >_>
Sep. 4th, 2006 04:18 am (UTC)
Oh? What is her recent LJ?
Sep. 4th, 2006 04:29 am (UTC)
I believe these are recent works:

Thats not really art work persay... thats warez for a second life shop. That isn't exactly like sitting down with pencil and paper (and doesn't require the use of a scanner) so that and art for people would count as way different in my book. *shrug*

It takes just as much time to DO though, maybe even more. And either way, I personally don't go galumphing off and drawing shit for memememe and shit with that many outstanding commissions. I have to work currently, so there is one that's kind of on hiatus, but all thats left is to color... >< It's acceptable if someone has to GO TO WORK and make a living but this really isn't.

Well, I've done SL avatars and they take a *lot* of time. :P Just saying.
Sep. 4th, 2006 10:54 am (UTC)
Gibbet. Those sketches of dragons were posted around her birthday as 'recent' so. >

She and I had an art trade years ago that I still haven't received her half on, and pretty much gave up on ever getting it.

Tough luck, man. :P
Sep. 3rd, 2006 01:08 pm (UTC)
We did an art trade years ago.. Hell. 03.. Never received my half either .. .and likewise on giving up on getting my half :/

The chick who pretends shes a boy who pretends hes a man who pretends hes a chick? Yeah. That one.

I wouldn't hold your breath, she owes a lot of people a lot of things when she's not busy pretending to be other people and purging her journal to keep up with all her identities.
Sep. 3rd, 2006 04:52 pm (UTC)
bummer it has to be like this, coz his/her/whatever art is so beautiful ;__;
Sep. 3rd, 2006 04:54 pm (UTC)
Oh I know tell me about it. It really sucks when someone who's art you admire turns out to be well...unreliable and flakey.

Is this the same person who was ranting about everyone ripping off their blue-jay griffin a couple years back? I thought it was a guy.
Sep. 3rd, 2006 05:30 pm (UTC)
Same one yes... she was apparantly pretending to be a guy online so people would 'respect her' or something, instead of liking her for being hot? oO;;

there are no men on the internets. Just girls who want to be boys.

Aaaah! It's the Beast With Fifteen Mouths! Run!

Just thank gods it's not the great two-backed beast XD

How long has it been? It's hard to give a response to this without knowing the time scale.
Sep. 4th, 2006 10:51 am (UTC)
Months. It was commissioned in february. :/
Aug. 17th, 2007 01:42 am (UTC)
This commission has been refunded. The amount refunded was $30 as what was payed for it.
