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.

Actually literally this entire time, I've been trying to ask "was it the WRONG DESIGN" or was it "not in keeping with the character of the character", because the commissioner says both things in reference to the problem here, but not TO the artist when they explain the problem. I think there's a big difference between if they used the wrong reference and if the commission didn't capture the essence of the character, especially if that initial note is ALL the artist had to go on. That's what I've been asking, and the commissioner has replied back here with the exact same wording every time that doesn't answer that question.

Saying that they may have gotten confused by the amount of references was an assumption I made based on the commissioner posting here and explaining to the artist that it was 'out of character'.

Also considering the OP's comments back, I'd say commissioner beware, too.
