    So, about more than a year ago, I found this one 3D artist who goes by the name BlueBerry,

    It was through this one post that I saw he was making a model of the character “Waltt”

    and thought it was pretty cool, asked him if the model was functional, to which he said yes, thus getting my interest for a comm, I went ahead and DMed him asking for the prices, 50 for the model + 50 for the base, we agreed with a commission of two models for 200, with all and bases, I did this because I also wanted to get priority into the queue, but that was a horrible mistake.

    After payment was made, he said he would start with a 2D reference before going for the actual model, but after a while of getting ghosted it turns out that the guy had a personal problem of which he didn’t talk about and that he was going to deactivate his Twitter, I uselessly attempted to cheer him, but to no avail.

    I asked him for a refund, but there was no answer whatsoever.

    Nevertheless, after some time passed (about a month or so) he recovered from his issue and said he was all ready to work again, giving me the 2D ref at the very last, it looked good enough.

    After some time more he worked on the face/head and sent me the WIPs, all good, just needed to explain him that the character owner was ok with having models of his OC.

    He also requested to post the work of the model, I said it was good, the WIPs were published after a while as some work went on private.

    Time went by and he showed me the body, everything seemed to be going well, though the conversation was cut short after one point, he began publishing the updates in public without contacting me, but this was just good enough for me.

    He even went as far as posting an animated video with my model.

    After a while I decided to change accs to make a small project, the two models he was working on would be involved in it alongside some art I had planned, but oh oh.

    Screenshot_20211029-173838_Chrome.thumb.jpg.1727effef94abf6fa8fe20ced5b1f058.jpg

    The guy had another mental breakdown for another problem he had, and again I uselessly tried to get his self-esteem up, he claimed that he didn’t want to model anymore, but that he would give me a refund, and even though I claimed multiple times that I rather have the base, they ghosted me for several days, no refund nor model, just silence.

    Screenshot_20211029-173845_Chrome.thumb.jpg.bfb63028e43676c1e39d353162102aa6.jpgScreenshot_20211029-173849_Chrome.thumb.jpg.966af7b639fdab1cb1977481259924d7.jpg

    After almost losing my patience the guy finally answered, just saying “sorry” this was enough to get me back to my calm self as he had finally answered.

    He then said that his PC was broken and that he couldn’t model, but he got a new one after a while.

    Everything went normal for a while, and I received a couple more updates (the last ones I ever got).

    Screenshot_20211029-174002_Chrome.thumb.jpg.9ae499a05e90646add8eaa9cd691db67.jpgScreenshot_20211029-174007_Chrome.thumb.jpg.b0ade5965cafe05930f89c795c87c373.jpg

    But after some time without receiving anything relevant, I checked on his profile and saw that he was making a free art thing alongside some WIPs of other (free) models, this made me realize that he didn't really wanted to work on my comm and was leaving it for whenever he felt like it, so I finally asked him for his email as I wanted a refund and my hype for the model was gone, it was about to be a year since I paid for it.

    Screenshot_20211029-174058_Chrome.thumb.jpg.a9669bb8cacda7fdd6a6838c3f9389a5.jpgScreenshot_20211029-174103_Chrome.thumb.jpg.787b47cced62f859a6f9ea27467aadbe.jpg

    He said he didn’t have the funds, he had already spent them.

    I got ghosted for several other days as I tried contacting him, only to get ghosted, this went on for a while until the guy opened commissions claiming that he would refund me with them and that my models "brought him problems", when asked why, he didn't gave any context.

    But, as it is obvious, I haven’t gotten a single penny back.

    Screenshot_20211101-111829_Chrome.thumb.jpg.7d2936aab1f1d1c5e8e9b2ddfb6c52f1.jpgScreenshot_20211116-120346_Chrome.thumb.jpg.b25b1669710633db21baafafac898257.jpgScreenshot_20211119-140237_Chrome.thumb.jpg.1ecc060c62fd54348b84af4080e20b05.jpg

    Screenshot_20220303-134132_Chrome.thumb.jpg.a2828ed4f7e83ad40594c2ba702c27d7.jpg

    Any other attempt of contact was ignored, I even tried DMing his BF and some of his friends, only to get ignored, too. Most likely they were told by the guy not to answer me.

    And whether I get my funds back or not, my experience with this artist has been utterly horrifying and I wouldn’t advise on giving money on his way. More than a year for a model is just WAY too much, specially if the commission didn't even got finished and you got ghosted for several days/weeks, let alone having your funds stolen.

    Also, people, do not commit the same mistake as me and don’t give your money away so easily, nor let time pass by, if you’re getting ghosted and the deadline for a refund is getting close you should REALLY set on your red flags and take action on it, stay safe.
