  • Artist Beware: Lui-Ra


    screamoshaymin
    • Who: Lui-Ra
      Where: https://www.deviantart.com/lui-ra/
      https://lui-ra-artist.newgrounds.com/art
      When: 11/23/2018
      What: Commission


    In November of 2018, I contacted Lui-Ra on Telegram to discuss a commission. I asked them to draw a character of mine, since at the time said character didn't have art. Once I contacted them and sent payment, they asked me for more details before suddenly going quiet. I have reason to believe I was blocked, though I can't imagine why that is. I also contacted them via Discord.

    I have asked for a refund, but I doubt I will receive one any time soon.

    It's funny, I was looking at this person's newgrounds a few weeks ago(Since everyone moved away from tumblr and made a newgrounds account, I browse Newgrounds now) and was considering commissioning them. Thanks for the warning, I'll be sure to steer clear.

    Definitely not good for them to just disappear on you after payment, it seems so odd considering their initial conversation with you seemed pretty standard. Though, one thing I noticed is their response to you describing your character's body type -- after you described him as a twink, they seemed to take issue? The way they responded  with "oh... I see...." followed by complete silence makes me believe they had some issue with the term for some reason?

    If it were the case I'd expect them to mention it makes them uncomfortable though? Not just straight up ghost you as a paying client - if for some reason they didn't want to work with you they should have said so and refunded, not just disappear with your money.

    That's what I was thinking, but like you said, they didn't really make it clear that it was the issue. if it is, then i'd gladly not use it (i have no problem with the term, and the character is lgbt anyway so it's not really inaccurate), but the ghosting is really shady still.

    i've yet to see any other issues with the artist, so it's really hard to determine.

    Really weird how they just ghosted you after you described your character as a twink. If you still can at this point, I'd do a charge back/open a dispute. You never know- They may reestablish contact ?

    They're very active on all accounts linked on their DA. Even if they had a problem with you using twink that's no excuse to steal your money and block you.

    After my initial DM on discord, I still received no response. I have also seen Lui-Ra continuing to post others' commission work.
