    Beware: JooJoo

    By Classic, in Artist Bewares, , 3 comments, 956 views
    Who: Joojoo, juicytreats
    Where: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/joojoo
    https://twitter.com/JuicyTreats

    When: 06/15/2020
    What: Commission
    NSFW Content

    On June 15 2020 I commissioned the artist joojoo on furaffinity to draw a single sketch page with 4 nsfw scenes in it and she sent told me that the commission would cost 80£ so I sent her the money. 
     
    A week later on June 21 2020 I asked her if it would be possible to add another scene in the sketch which I was willing to pay for but she suddenly sent me a message saying how each of the four scenes in this sketch page commission would cost 80£ per piece. she did not clarify this to me earlier as I thought that the whole commission was 80£.
     
    Than in another message she claimed that I didn’t pay her at all when I did in fact pay her as I have the paypal receipt to proof this and she blocked me furaffinity and she has been ignoring my messages for a refund 
     
    I tried to forgot about this as she is a popular furry artist so I felt that the odds were against me but I just couldn’t let go of this issue anymore and at the time I didn’t know that PayPal offered refunds and I was also afraid to go to them for help due to the commission being nsfw
     
    I’m attaching all the photos of the messages that the artist sent me and also proof of payment on PayPal here
     
    I would be very grateful if someone here could help me with this thank you 
     
    Note: this is my first time posting here so please let me know if made any mistakes or if I’m missing something 

     





    Beware: Catiko / evvishere

    By cyrilrubedo, in Artist Bewares, , 0 comments, 467 views
    Who: Catiko / evvishere / evvisnothere
    Where: evvisnothere on discord (aka Catiko)
    https://www.instagram.com/evvishere
    whatsapp.com/channel/0029VaAsRWO1Hsq3CDg4z23R
    When: 06/02/2023
    What: Commission



    Contacted back in June after seeing them advertising in a discord server I'm in. After paying for the agreed-on commission and getting no updates for over a month, I messaged again for an update. They said they had some other commissions ahead of mine in their queue and said they don't check discord much, so gave me an Instagram and Twitter as other means of contact (could not find the twitter account when I looked for it). Two and a half months later with no communication I messaged again and got no answer. Another month and a half later I tried the Instagram, which matches the discord exactly, and was ignored. Yesterday I tried one last time on discord to ask why I was ignored on Instagram, no answer, but I did notice they had been online because their username has changed (from Catiko to evvisnothere) so they have definitely since logged in and would have seen my notification/message. As well, their Instagram profile has a link to a whatsapp channel where they post updates and work, which was updated as recently as today (at time of writing). Their Instagram profile has also been updated with a new profile picture since my message was sent, meaning they have logged in there and will have seen a notification that I messaged them there.
    I paid €30 for this commission and just got ghosted.




     

     
     
     

    Beware: Lopinho

    By Heathecliff, in Client Bewares, , 0 comments, 270 views
    Who: Lopinho, Lopinhojaneiro
    Where: https://t.me/lopinhojaneiro
    When: 12/25/2023
    What: YCH



    I don't like the fact that I'm having to do this, but as I couldn't resolve this in a pacific way with this client, I've decided to make a beware so that other artist don't end up on the same situation as I am right now.
    Costumer: @lopinhojaneiro ~ https://t.me/lopinhojaneiro (Telegram)
    Telegram ID: 6328315414
    On December's end (most specifically Christmas) he came on Telegram to me asking for a animated icon of my Star Fox YCH. I accepted and started working on it the day after, soon I sent him the sketch for approval. Everything before asking for the payment. (Something that I always do, and that is stated in my ToS that can be found on my art channel @JellyBeansArt).
    Besides that, the user ignored me without reason for more than a week regarding the payment of 50$ BRL (around 10USD) for the commission, and was incredibly rude when I questioned him about it, who answered me saying that I "Haven't finished it yet so I won't be paying". On my advertisement of that specific YCH I explicitly say that I finish it up to 24h after the payment (I said the same on the conversation with him, but he just ignored saying again that he won't be paying).
    So if you doesn't wish to fall on this pit, I suggest avoiding this person's fursona. I'll be leaving here links that lead to his fursona's reference sheet and some extra artwork of him.
    Along with it I'll also leave a video that shows all the conversation (portuguese only) and prints of it on both Brazilian Portuguese (original) and English. Sorry for the poor quality of the english translated images, I took photos of them from my computer screen using my phone to use the Google Translator. The video have good quality.

    When: 08/11/2022
    What: Commission



    All below messages are via twitter DMs. See attached screeshots.

    On Aug 11th 2022 I reached out to the artist who was then Marbleshark_AD on twitter, and now Pup_Jaxces after they did username change.  After some discussion of content (skipped in the screenshots), we agreed to two NSFW sketches with alts totalling $140, paid on Aug 14th 2022 after some difficulty with initially paypal'ing the wrong address. I tip $15 at this step, for a total of $155. The agreement and payment is in the screenshots






    4 months pass, w. no contact.  December 10th 2022, I reached out again asking for an update since it had been awhile and I saw them posting about life struggles on twitter. No reply.
    7 days pass w. no contact.  December 16th, 2022, I reach out again asking for an update and giving reassurance in case they feared I was angry or annoyed.  They reply saying theyve made progress on the comish, and ask for a better place to make contact citing a lack notifications from twitter DMs. I provide my Discord and telegram. They do not reply further.

    Jan 4th, 2023. I reach out to make contact, having not received any friend request on discord or message on telegram.
    Jan 24th, 2023, I reach out to make contact, having not received any friend request on discord or message on telegram.
     

    Feb 26th, 2023, I post a reply to an art piece on their telegram art gallery asking about my unfinished commission. They ask me there to message them on twitter, then delete the replies. I DM them on twitter asking them to contact me.  I tell them I feel ghosted after 5 months, asking for the current state of the comish, and if none or minimal work has been completed I'd like a refund.  They say they will need to look through their sketchbooks saying its 'most likely done'.  This will be the last message I ever receive from them.


    July 31, 2023. I reach out to make contact after 5 months of wait, still having not received any further DM on twitter, nor friend request on discord or message on telegram.
    October 5, 2023. I reach out to make contact after seeing them post on twitter that theyre closing an account they host art on and that theyre discontinuing NSFW comishes, still having not received any further DM on twitter, nor friend request on discord or message on telegram. I ask again for a refund or for an update on their sketchbook search.


    After this I stop trying to contact them.  However on Oct 25th 2023 I make my own artist beware style post on my twitter and @ their handle, which would generate a notification for them.  On Nov 23 2023, I notice they've changed their handle to Pup_Jaxces.
    Having sought multiple times over a full year to resolve this either with delivery or refund, and sAs they have other posts here on ArtistBeware with the same behavior I can only presume this is not a mistake and they have no intent to deliver the commission.
     
     

    Beware: Leandro Lorkalt/lorkalt1

    By Cliffthepig, in Artist Bewares, , 0 comments, 792 views
    Who: Lorkalt1
    Where: https://twitter.com/lorkalt
    When: 01/11/2023
    What: Commission
    NSFW Content

    I was really holding out for Lorkalt, but the year is coming to an end and I have yet to get what I paid for. That, on top of months-long waits for a simple response and seeing the artist fulfill other commissions while I wait so long, I want to make this post to warn against commissioning Lorkalt or @Lorkalt1 on Twitter. 
    On January 11th, I started talks with Lorkalt about a two-character colored commission. We did the transaction through Paypal and it was all done on that same day. A couple of days later Lorkalt sent me a sketch of what the piece would look like, and I agreed to what I saw. 
    After this communication started to go downhill. I told the artist that I liked the sketch and then I finally got a response from him on February 27th - almost a month after we last spoke. He apologized for the wait and then sent me a link to a Google Drive folder that held detailed Black and Whites of my commission. I confirmed that I liked what I saw and sent him a few more details to help with the coloring. It almost took him until mid-July for me to get another response. 
    When I finally got a response from Lorkalt, they explained that they were preoccupied with a situation going on at their end and sent me another update which I confirmed. He explained that he was just finalizing everything, and yet I only got my next response in October. There was no real update concerning my commission, but instead an explanation as to what was now preventing him from giving me updates. He explained that he lost access to his Twitter due to being blocked and that he would send me news during that week. 
    That never happened, and now it's a few days into December and I have not heard ANYTHING from Lorkalt concerning my commission. 
    As you will see in the screenshots, during these huge windows of silence, I have sent Lorkalt multiple messages to see if we can re-establish some communication. I would either be left on read or just flat-out ignored, so I was kept in the dark about when I would get any updates on what I paid for. And while Lorkalt did state that he lost access to his account due to being blocked, I don't find that as a valid reason mostly due to how we also established communication through email. So, regardless of if his Twitter was blocked, he still had the capability of updating me via the email address that I provided to him. 
    It's irritating to deal with this because the art shows a lot of promise and I was excited to commission him. But I only learned that he has a habit of being tardy with updates only after I paid him, from this website and from other Twitter users who have been waiting for more than a year for their artwork.
