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
At the end of the day. I have fixed your piece as desired (which you have not replied to yet on FA) and this post is still actively going down.

I don't understand why this post is still up, as the issue at hand has been resolved.

I feel as though I have defended myself decently as a person and artist and have completed my end of helping resolve this.
Anything further just feels like fighting/arguing for the sake of it, which I'm not a fan of or wish to participate in.

I'm honestly sorry that you didn't like the art and that this commissioning process went as rockily as it did.

Re: I'm the Artist in Question
I don't want this dragged any further, either, just did not expect to find a few dozens new comments here after the FA exchange. I can't reply on FA now (or for next few hours) though.

For what it's worth, I am sorry for all the mess and the miscommunication here. I've learned my lesson to be more direct and keep business and casual conversations separate.

And yes, you are a REALLY good artist -- art-wise. I would suggest using something like trello or doodle to keep a bit more organized though.
