  • Beware: Skellri

    • Who: Skellri / skellri
      Where: https://twitter.com/skellri
      When: 08/17/2021
      What: Commission


    My communication with Skellri began on the 17th of August 2021. I commissioned her for three headshots.



    I sent them my paypal address and then tipped them, as I thought that 30$ for a single headshot at her skill level was too low.



    Some days went past and I realised that I hadn't asked for an estimate on when the commissions would be done, so I approached the artist.


    However, I did not hear from her at the time they had stated, and then had to approach them twice before they replied. I got a new date for an estimate delivery on the commissions.


    I did not hear from them on the 9th of October, and waited until December to contact them again. They answered over a month later in January 2022.


    The next day, they did post wips of the three headshots I had requested.



    I've not received a message from them since. I approached them again in March, then months later now, in September, eventually telling them that I would have to take some action due to the lack of communication and delivered goods.


    She has been promoting her commissions as recently as yesterday (19th of Sep 2022) on their Twitter profile, proving that she is active on Twitter.


    Obviously it's far too late for me to get the money refunded through Paypal, and so it stands to this day that I've not received anything but mere WIPs for the 60$ + 20$ tip. I hope that by doing this other people will not go through the same.

    A comment was not posted.  While we welcome clients of artists to say they've had a good experience with the artist in question, doing so on a beware is inappropriate.  A good result for you does not negate someone's bad experience.  We welcome you to post to the positive review forum instead.

    Please see:  I've been Posted to Artists Beware, Now What?



    Can people say they had a good experience with me?

    In addition, we will not approve comments that are simply “I had a good experience with this artist” and will instead route them to the positive reviews forum. A good experience with one person doesn't invalidate someone else's negative experience. We have a subforum just for positive reviews, and we would be delighted if your clients shared their good experiences there.
