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.

Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

It should be noted that the artist's exact words were, "I'm glad you liked your second one though! And I'll be sure to make you a piece to make up for the first commission." They never actually said they would re-do the poster, or make a new poster style, simply that they would do something to make up for it.

It'd be nice if OP could check any e-mails so see if they still have the original file sent to them. As well as posting a screen shot of their ref journal for viewers to read without needing to hunt for the link in the other images.

These are both really excellent points. We'd really have to see it to understand the situation.

The image was not sent via email, it was sent via a link to an FA upload in the notes (which I subsequently requested to take down).

All communication was structly on FA.

The way I understand it happened is, between the time she took the commission (February) and drew it (May), she could have misfiled the actual note with references (which is hella easy on FA, as it has no search feature or anything) so for some reason instead of asking to get themresent, just looked up my FA profile and took whichever ref got her attention (likely because it is the first one listed in the journal I have punned, that lists all of them, and my icon is a bear).
