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.

Kinda wondering about this too. Otters are pretty tough to pull off for most people, so I'm wondering if it's more the artist not being able to do it to another standards, of if it's actually different. Are the colours/markings the same? Where would they get the bear idea from if only otter refs were linked?

Or, were the refs of the otter not clear on species either somehow, maybe they did look bear like?

I'll admit I only skimmed the post but it's hard really knowing what's up without seeing what was wrong, like the final image.

They are similar in being white/light but theyre completely different body types. They likely did lose the refs like you said and assumed white = otter and just went by that without reading or double checking, and didnt bother to note you to make sure.

Wish artists would own up to the screw ups and just fix it. Would save a lot of hassle for them and the customers.
