    This was a Character for Art trade:  The Agreement was that they would get the character I was selling for 70$ in exchange for a art piece as they were a artist and short on change.

    I had posted a character for sell for 70$, it had a slew of art for it! Fen contacted me requesting that they didn't have 70$ but REALLY wanted the character and would be willing to deliver a flat color in exchange for it, they also said they can send me 20$ within a week on top of the flat com.

    After seeing no other offers, I decided to roll with Fen's offer, and took the flat color, we exchanged details, I sent her the file of the character, and I moved on and allowed her to start working, she claimed to have a WIP for me within a few days.

    After a week I had heard nothing so I reached out, and they delivered a sketch! I was happy with the sketch and moved on.

    I waited about 2 weeks after that and reached out again asking if there was any updates, they responded with essentially the same WIP as before, but with the head lined. That's okay! I'm just happy to get a response at this point, I can wait for the art!

    I waited for about 2 weeks again, and contacted them looking for a update, but alas no response. At this point it is important to mention I belong to their discord server, and while I sent my message I noticed that they were VERY active in their discord, so I was a bit confused.

    I shrugged it off and waited about a week, and then tried knocking again to see if I could get something, this time pointing out that I've seen them posting, but not sure if they just forgot to respond, we're all human after all.  Still no response, and like last time, very active in their discord, actually even streaming free art streams! I wanted to make a comment to them in the discord to see if they would respond to me then, but I really didn't want to put them on the spot in front of their patrons like that.

    finally on Friday I contacted them pointing out that if they didn't want to do the commission anymore, we can work something out, and find a solution, but they needed to respond to me to do that. alas no response, with the same situation as before, very active in their discord. So I decided maybe discord was broken and contacted them on Twitter DM's nothing.

     

    At this point I got annoyed at them, and was beginning to become agitated, I sent my final signal out in hopes maybe that would get to them, but still nothing.

    [This is Fen accepting the offer via discord after I asked if it was still available. After this I sent files, and exchanged what I wanted in the art piece]

    [This was the last message I sent almost a month ago, asking for ANY sort of response, otherwise I would try finding a home for the character as they have not upheld their end of the deal]

    At this point I'm not sure what to do with the character given they bought art for it already, and I doubt anyone would want to buy it with this drama attached, but I just want to make sure no one else falls victim to this!

    That's their problem, not yours. And technically nobody has bought it because the price to be paid was never delivered, so they're just paying for art for someone else's character - realistically speaking.

    I'd call them out on their discord because what they're doing is not cool, and maybe that will jerk them back into reality - where you pay for the stuff you want (via money or otherwise). I'd give them a deadline, and if still no response just offer the character up for sale again - maybe nobody bites, maybe someone does, but until the art is delivered as promised it's still your character. Doesn't look like they're going to give you the art to me though, especially if they're making a point of ignoring you (also - who gets art of a character they haven't even paid off yet??).

    Cknsausage is correct.  You can pull the character from them and resell it/ retrade it at any time.  Especially if they're going to ignore you on this trade.

    Update: Hours after posting this Fen broke their silence with me and told me that I can have the character back, and apologized for the trade going sour. I still say beware as it still happened, and I believe the only reason they broke silence is because of public eye.

    We will mark this as resolved, but it will still retain the beware tag.
