I sent them my paypal address and then tipped them, as I thought that 30$ for a single headshot at her skill level was too low.
Some days went past and I realised that I hadn't asked for an estimate on when the commissions would be done, so I approached the artist.
However, I did not hear from her at the time they had stated, and then had to approach them twice before they replied. I got a new date for an estimate delivery on the commissions.
I did not hear from them on the 9th of October, and waited until December to contact them again. They answered over a month later in January 2022.
The next day, they did post wips of the three headshots I had requested.
I've not received a message from them since. I approached them again in March, then months later now, in September, eventually telling them that I would have to take some action due to the lack of communication and delivered goods.
She has been promoting her commissions as recently as yesterday (19th of Sep 2022) on their Twitter profile, proving that she is active on Twitter.
Obviously it's far too late for me to get the money refunded through Paypal, and so it stands to this day that I've not received anything but mere WIPs for the 60$ + 20$ tip. I hope that by doing this other people will not go through the same.
