      When: 09/05/2022
      What: Commission


    A commission turned abusive.

    I was originally approached unsolicited via note on FA by this user (when they were not suspended) offering to make artwork for my characters that they 'adored' (see the FA note screenshot attached below).

    After some back and forth I agreed to commisison them. The linework they did got back to me very quickly within 3 days of originally being approached. However on September 8th they said they'd begin coloring and I did not hear back from them until I reached out again on October 11th. I  did recieve my finished work from them, but my correspondence with them felt overall abusive.

    However they were very keen to get a second commission from me for another character of mine. I wasn't sure that I really wanted to get a second full detailed picture and instead asked if they did sketches for helping me concept a new design.

    They said they didn't and I decided then that I wasn't going to get a second commission. This is when the abusive behavior was very apparent.

    Below is my full correspondence on discord with this user.

    This is not really surprising from the other bewares of this artist and the unsolicited notes those replies from him are really guilt tripping.

    You handled yourself so well and I applaud your cool, calm composure. I hope you never have to deal with a situation like this again, it's completely uncalled for.
