WHO: Millenium-Millie-Gryphon AKA Millie AKA Onyx AKA Onyx Art Studios

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/millenium-millie-gryphon

WHAT: 2 x circus poster style images of my otter shape

WHEN: Claimed slots, provided references and paid on February 14th. Inquired on progress April 10th, got response and first pic on April 16th, which was of a wrong character. After informing the artist of that, she did the second pic, then said she will redraw this one, then delayed past the paypal dispute deadline after which stopped responding to notes (still reading them and taking other commissions).

EXPLAIN: Millie opens these commissions via journals/picture announcements on a regular basis. I took two slots and sent info February 14th, 2017, paid same day.

After no progress for a couple months, I’ve contacted Millie on April 10th to check on the progress, and got a response with one image April 16th. There was one problem with that though, it was a wrong character, which I told her. We have reconfirmed the correct references, and May 7th, I got the second picture. That one was pretty well done. I again informed Millie that the first one was wrong, and also mentioned that it was supposed to go with another picture with the same subject from another artist. I have also requested the picture with the wrong character taken down. She said she will redraw it, then it took a series of delays until paypal dispute deadline has expired (in hindsight, I should have opened it, but her staying in communication and being polite kind of led me astray). After that, she stopped responding to notes while reading them, being active and offering further commissions.

Darn, those circus posters looked so cool, too. But hearing the artist doesn't even send one WIP sketch, nope. They could have easily avoided this mess by sending one, being told it's the wrong character and not wasting all that work on the finished piece. Not to mention the horrible customer service once the PayPal window closed.

No wips (unless stated before hand) is deff something you dont want on a larger purchase, and would make me avoid the artist all together.

Hey there! I'm the artist in question.
I was notified of this post and I would like to clear up some things.

My policy on WIPs are stated in my Terms of Service. I'm happy to give as many WIP's as desired upon request. (as many of my past commissioners prefer their pieces to be surprises)

Its completely up to the commissioner as to how many progress images that they want, but if none are requested, then I assume that they do not want any.

"-I will send you progress images upon request and tweak the work so that it is to your liking, however once you have approved a stage (sketch, flat color, and shaded) I cannot go back change it."
