Last year I commissioned the artist Seoir for an image of one of my OCs. They were offering $25 bust commissions, which was a bit steep for me at the time, but I really liked their art style.
So, I send them their money and all is fine. I wait a couple months, because I know how long art can take, and go to message them to see what's happening and where they are at. Turns out that they have deactivated their account, and I have no other way to get in contact with them.
So, in conclusion, this is somewhat of an undelivered commission story and definitely a beware story.
Hopefully the attachments work. Here are some guides to understand what is happening:
