  3. Have they said anything since? If you wanted to chase it up you can say that you please need them to respond so you can finish the commission, otherwise you'll take their silence as acceptance as the image as is. "Hello! I'm just following up since I've noticed you've seen the changes but haven't responded. Is everything looking good? I'm afraid that if these long lapses in contact continue I'm going to have to consider the commission completed."
  4. Ugh, that's so frustrating, I'm sorry this happened to you. No one should have their sona drawn in an inappropriate way without the owner's consent. Including that you specified what you wanted is just irritable. Even the fact that they were so rude afterward towards you, how they didn't even apologize? That's unacceptable.
  5. Last week
  6. Rather than everyone commenting on this post, they are all encouraged to make their own post if they still don't have the art. Tag usage is counted on our tags page, and the more records are tagged the higher their number will be.
  7. Hey, OP! I'm sorry you've had such a horrible experience with Luna, unfortunately myself, two of my friends and my partner have all had horrible experiences - and I feel utterly responsible because I recommended her after my first commission was completed. To go by my first experience, LunaOfWater was one of the first ever artists I had commissioned and so I didn't really have an understanding or expectations of time & communication in regards to this sort of transaction. To summarise my experience, I wrote a review on her artist design page and both myself and my partner were promptly blocked from her Twitter, for no other reason than leaving a negative review: I don't believe I was condescending or rude in any way during my review, I was just completely honest given my experience with her as a whole. At this point, we weren't exaggerating with her trello being 100-ish orders deep. And funnily enough we found my partner's commission on her trello two days before she actually DM'd it to him. To save completely bombarding your thread with images, I've taken DM's of our last experience with her and put them into imgur links: https://imgur.com/pst5O26 https://imgur.com/U5vGYBG https://imgur.com/qy5hiz5 https://imgur.com/Sc6anYz https://imgur.com/Vnr0arn I will try to encourage my friends to post their screenshots and such, as I don't want to do it on their behalf. But my friend was completely ignored my Luna altogether when attempting to commission her, she /also/ wrote on her artist design review page and Luna responded. To which she DM'd her directly and also emailed her and got absolutely 0 response, yet again. My other friend is waiting on about a $200 refund for emotes and panels that she's never received and never had any WIPs despite being promised them twice. I have a friend that commissioned her afterwards for artwork of himself and a biggish v-streamer and received it within a week and a half. It's absolutely boggling and makes no sense. As of right now, she's completely MIA. Her trello has been inactive since Feb and her Twitter since March. I don't wish to make any speculations, but I feel as if she's taken on too many commissions to handle. I know she had a discord server at one point, but I don't know if it's been shut down or she simply kicked my friend for requesting her refund.
  8. Would it be possible to get the 4 #'s on the end of their discord since names on discord itself can easily be changed? I am so sorry this happened to you. Perhaps getting paid first is something you should consider in the future! Hopefully you can recoop some of your losses somehow. :<
  9. This is a prime example of how you ahouldnt start any form of fine tuning a rough sketch or inking or even colpring until you have been paid. This person just wanted free art and dint care if us artists get paid.
  10. Is it illegal to make a consignment agreement to sell an artist’s work for a certain price and then secretly sell it for way more and only give the artist 60% of the agreed upon price?  I t Th hunk that’s what is going on at a gallery I’m in.

    Beware - copycatz

    This and the others I have talked to this occurred years ago and probably part of what got them the one year ban initially. Unless they're doing it now which I cannot ascertain, it's not a line to follow at this point. Just talk to your friends and acquaintances warning them about this artist. Urging them to tell others about them until is spreads that this person cannot find safe harbor to continue ripping people off.
  14. Yeah, I never felt confident in doing art commissions so I only truly plan on selling adoptables. I knew they weren't international, and that's their only downfall to make it unfavorable in comparison to Paypal.I appreciate the answer !
  15. Here's the twitter link as some non-registered folks like to leave advice on posts.
  16. Venmo is not for business purposes as per their Terms of Service. Cashapp doesn't have buyer protection, however if you're using it for adoptables only it's fairly low risk for your customers. Technically Venmo is too, but I'm personally unaware of any repercussions for using Venmo's services for business. Neither option works internationally as a heads up. (Though you didn't ask. Many don't know this.)
  17. Hi! So I'm pretty new to the furry community, but not new to art. I am interested in selling adoptables at some point ( and also buying ! ) but I see majority of furry artists use Paypal. Unfortunately, I am banned from Paypal and can not use it at all to buy or sell anything, as they've restricted my account and I can't unlink my card to the banned account or link it to a new account. My question is: Is Venmo and/or Cashapp secure not only for the artist but for the buyer as well and does the community trust those apps / artists who use those apps? I don't desperately need to sell adopts but I would love to in the future, but can not use Paypal at all. Any advice would be great and appreciated ❤️
  18. No matter how low the price is there is no excuse to trace over art for anything never the less a commission!

  20. My fiance commissioned a shop on Etsy to draw some outfits for her character. She gave the artist a reference sheet of her character that I drew for her earlier this year. The shop traced the artwork and made two edits (The face was edited to look different, and one hand pose was changed very slightly) and if you lay the image over my artwork you can see that the lines match 90% I tried to censor the posts as much as possible and I apologize if there's any 'lewdness' to them, as you can see parts of the character's genital anatomy despite my best efforts to censor it while maintaining the integrity of the images (to best show how closely they matched the lines, down to nearly exact shapes and curves) I confronted the artist and they denied that the artwork was traced. They offered to redraw the commission for my partner but our big fear is that they may be tracing other artists as well. For the record the commission in question was incredibly cheap, under $15. The issue really isn't the money, for me, it's the theft of intellectual property for financial gain. Etsy removed the listing but has not removed the shop from their website.
  21. I added a screen where they told me to keep the money, but I'm going to refund them regardless should they decided to change their mind on the premise "you didn't finish my commission"
  22. Yea, refunding would be best for both parties in this instance. No, we wouldn't accept a post that's about a personal disagreement. Choosing to block someone is a personal choice. If they somehow try and escalate the situation then we would review it.
  23. Before I start, I am canceling this commission and refunding the client to prevent the possibility of a chargeback. I was in the middle of inking their image as well but given I don't want any chance of them going overboard with this person, they will get refunded n full So I had a client who I also considered a friend decide to basically block me on every platform (Twitter is where this started): Twitter, FA, discord in the middle of a commission. We were both following each other on Twitter and I had made a public post about my viewpoint on the chaos happening in my country. They in turn made a reply to said post which not only was rather rude (in my opinion), but also completely ignored my standpoint. In a sense I felt they were trying to silence my voice and opinions, while also lumping me into a group of people I do not agree with. As a result I chose to stand up for what I believed in via Twitter to clarify things, and as a result, they blocked me, and proceeded to do some on FA and Discord. Problem was this happened in the middle of a commission, and IDK what else to do besides refund them. I mean I doubt I can very well make a cautionary beware post over someone getting on me via twitter only to block me in the middle of a business transaction, can I?? I will post censored screenshots if need be, but I'm hesitant to given the fact that the subject matter can be seen as controversial/debatable. Edit: They posted this before blocking me. I censored out the controversial stuff regarding the disagreement, but this is what they said:
  24. Update: Messaged them, they said markings should be changed (eventhough they accepted them in a WIP prior before I went to finish them). Anyway, I changed the makings and they saw the updated images and again decided to ghost me. At this point I'm getting rather frustrated considering the back and forth waiting and that they kinda slow down my progress and queue. I don't know what to do with this client 😕
  25. That's actually is considered spamming according to FA Code of Conduct. 3.4 Do not spam. This includes registering accounts or posting content automatically, messaging users en masse with unsolicited ads or information (e.g. beware content), posting content that is nonsensical and/or unnecessarily long or page breaking, or making incessant comments at others.
  26. I took a commission from someone watching my livestream, it was on the spot and meant to be 1 bust, and then during the middle of the livestream they asked for a second. The attachment is the result of that (NSFW hentai warning), after our last contact they never paid the invoice. [Mod Edit] From OP when asked about the invoice being canceled: No, I posted about this interaction on the Hentai-Reserve discord after sending the invoice, Arendale went no contact and didn't pay and then other artists on the discord had the same problem with them of non-payment, so I cut my loses.
