    Around ten full months ago I decided to contact this artist that I had already reached out too before hand for art and we have/had a decent and friendly relationship.  I wanted to do a small YCH featuring one of my oc's and a random one to be picked out by me and the artist.  The initial sketch of the painting was done up quickly, and the public ych was held and paid for.   I still even have the original image/post up on FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/29041090/

    This was fully paid for on my end.  This was 350$ from me and 250$ from the other person who participated in the raffle.

    deciding.thumb.png.ffcd7af3e75cbb089cf99a42f7f3fd64.pngWe decided on who to pick on the 19th, three days after I paid.

     firstupdate.thumb.png.13d5167f78417bec2e42b5140d386b3b.pngThe first update I asked for/received was on 11/11, I did get a wip of it and it was fairly nice.  We did have a good relationship here and we talked often about random topics.

    2ndupdate.thumb.png.578bd6ada621a09bec0b3b0904f93501.pngSecond update! Everything is going well!  Again, I've never been rude or mean in any way and at that point we'd be considered friends/friendly

    manymonthslater.thumb.png.272a97f75ab7eecccbbd25232ca503a8.pngReached out again five months after the last update since I wasn't sure what was going on at this point.  The artist admits that it has been too long herself and says she just needs to get it done.  

    stillbought.png.c227a2d408143c52b98554daedef5092.pngI'm skipping months here since I decided to give her some time, but I still bought other images since I assumed she was steadily working away at it.  I was still commissioning the artist during this time.  Honestly a mistake.  

    restart.thumb.png.da7204a37c1dfa62ac774fe38e21a256.pngA month later she decided to fully restart the image after a long delay.  At this point it has been over half a year and she had just restarted it.  

    delay.thumb.png.cc6b8accfdae22e17fb50a2146cd39ee.pngAgain, at no point was I ever rude or mean or short.  Always gave her room and let her work while occasionally asking for updates.  expressingfrustrations.thumb.png.685c8fb77cf43b26132e0480ec2727d8.png

    At this point I finally express my frustrations and I'm very upfront about it.  She offered a free sketch in compensation and I definitely took a jab at her offer.  I did accept the offer and I'm really tried not to be too upset/rude in my messages and I don't think I was aside from the jab.  I didn't even ask for a wip at this point since I kind of assumed she hasn't made any progress.  This was the last message she sent me, which was just over a month ago now.  Still not sure what kind of progress has been made if any, she hasn't responded to my messages, hasn't responded to the other person participating in the ych with me.  This is a 600$ image that was paid for when commissioned in full.  There was no delay in payment, I was never rude, always friendly.  While I waited for this painting, she finished another image for me in this time frame.  Not only that but several rounds of commissions have come and gone, with the artist accepting more while I haven't received my finished commission.  

    nomoreresponse.thumb.png.c1e215848c2cc7d2c500ebd848006e74.png

    As of right now I have received nothing.  No response for the last month, well past the time she claims to have moved.  

    As of right now 0/600$ has been refunded

    As of right now, the offered sketch hasn't been given

    As of right now, no further communication has been had.  

    Not sure what else to included, feels like I've been scammed out of money

    Oh man that's a long wait for a painting, especially if it's for two separate people. Hope you're not getting any flak from the person you're sharing it with. Don't think restarting it was the smart thing to do on the artists part and offering more art to compensate for the lack of it is also never a good move. I hope this can be resolved soon.

    That being said, I am a little bit confused about the raffle. The post on fA says "this YCH will NOT be "first come first serve" but rather randomly chosen from the list of entries for the slot! ", but in the second screenshot you two are talking as if you were picking a winner by hand, so which one was it?

    Hello! I am the artist. Raven has been nothing but understanding and generally nice most times with occasional clearly upset messages they have sent me 

    The commission they mention in this post is a painting something I was new at at the time of commissioning (i believe this was also discussed with raven at the time) I explained countless times the issues i was having and my reasons for restarting the commission was purely out of the desire to make the commission better and more detailed for my paying customers. Raven seemed understanding of this and really didnt seem upset or unhappy about this decision at the time.

    In early August of this year I moved with my partner and to my knowledge was upfront about this to raven. At no point have they been ignored or have I been rude, further more when I offered raven this sketch they vaguely seemed interested and gave no info what so ever as to the content or even what they'd want. I truly believed they didnt really want it. All other commissions that raven has bought have been completed. Only one previously has had delays. They have commissioned 2 pinups and 1 or 2 sketches that to my knowledge they have liked! 

    Raven has also never formally requested a refund. A few days ago they contacted me suggesting they would possibly like a refund IF I didnt give them an expected completion date. So I provided them with a date. That was that and they have not contacted me since, nor did they warn me about this beware.

    I believe this beware was rather undeserved but I suppose I am biased

    Anyone who has asked for a refund has either gotten one or been put on a waiting list to receive one. Any commissioner that has asked me for updates has received relatively fast updates. I do not believe I ever came off as rude or awful to raven nor did I scam or manipulate them. They have had contact with me this entire time.

    Perhaps our wording was off in the description of the ych I let raven pick the winner ( if I remember correctly)

    As for the colored sketch that was offered to them, sketches were completed every month so I believed giving them art in the now would make them more patient with the painting that was taking a while
