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.

Re: I'm the Artist in Question
I would automatically include a sketch wip with every order, and not leave it up to the buyer to ask. It would help issues like this be avoided. Or, have them flat out state 'no I do not want WIPs' when ordering.

I know a lot of buyers are afraid of asking the artists stuff and might not ask out of fear; or they may just forget, or assume one will be sent, and its additional ones to ask for.

Re: I'm the Artist in Question
I try to do that now with current commissioners (as this issue went down quite awhile ago.. so I operated a bit differently then).
It seems to help with most issues.. I wish I had done so then. That way all of this would've been avoided.
