Mod note: some proof links are broken, what remains has been added.
WHERE: ON FurAffinity via notes and through e-mails.
WHAT: It was a SKETCH for $35. I know that seems a bit pricey for a sketch but I really liked their style and I figured they would draw my chara epicly.
Their quality of sketches: http://www.furaffinity.net/commissions/nathradas/
WHEN: April 14th, 2013
This started out on one of Nathradas' streams. I should have taken a screen shot then but I didn't, thinking that there WOULDN'T be any problems in getting what I want. She said to e-mail me the form and so, I did.
And here is proof I sent payment:
And she said mine will be drawn tomorrow! So I was excited.
EXPLAIN: I commissioned this artist thinking that they'd do my character justice so after waiting for the next day for the stream... That never came. So, I was patient since I did say that there was no deadline for my commission but after receiving not a single message at all since then, I was growing a bit worried. So, after 9 days I messaged her again.
And I got a fast reply.
So she said she'll be working on it in a few days so naturally, I waited. Then, I saw a journal posting on FA saying that she'll be streaming! So I was hoping that this would be the day of her doing my sketch and sadly... it was not. She was sculpting and I did not want to just out right ask while in stream so I waited once more. After it was nearing a month, I sent her another note, asking for a refund. I figure at this time, she was either not wanting to draw my char because she was uploading lots of art on her tumblr and ignored my latest sent note.
This was when I sent her several e-mails and even a message through skype about my commission. None of which she ever replied to.
other e-mail: (sent to her rukh oone)
All of which are listed under contacts on her website. (Didn't bother blocking out my name since it's common, idgaf)
And I have a feeling she's ignoring me or whatever since she's been uploading art on her tumblr ever since... And I did not see her tumblr until it has been a month passed. I still believe as a commissioner, I should be sending notes/e-mails to know how things are going, right? But at this point, I am unsure of what to do. I cannot do a paypal charge back because it was sent as a gift at the time because I thought it would be done soon.
Seems she replied to her new e-mail she posted up and said she'll be giving me my refund by the end of the month or by the new commissions she'll be taking.
Now to wait about a week for any results.
Refunded in full.
