Mine is not a new story- mine is nothing new. But it is for me.

    Three months and still isn't here..

    I'd recommend an ultimatum where you request them to send what they have, not bother with the art or the feet if they haven't been started yet, and possibly a small refund since you don't want those things made. That will get you what exists as soon as possible while simultaneously making it much harder for your friend to delay shipping the suit.
  2. Location releases are required when you receive money in some way that would have not been possible without that location. They are also required when the location is the focus of something that will be publicly released (e.g. public access television, news, movies, etc). Location releases are regularly skirted around and not sought after though. I am not a lawyer but I think in your case you should technically seek one (because of the intended after-product involving money) HOWEVER since it is only for personal use and you are not a professional photographer - nobody will care. Owners want to be paid mostly based on the fact that their location is being used for profit, and secondarily if the location is being used to advance some agenda so they can at least have forewarning (and the ability to refuse). While the artist is technically making money off the location, you, who took the picture, are not, and it's being used for personal use only, so I'd say you're fine.

    Artist Beware: Chesta

    Why not write your own beware? Multiple bewares have more weight.

    Weather, in general

    I'm in upstate NY and it's an expected cold for this time of year. I bought a house 2 years ago and this winter is actually not as bad as last winter, since I redid some of the insulation since last winter lol. But I'm still cold. It's 27f right now, but yesterday was a high of 15 and the day before it was like -8 for a long time haha

    The amazing disappearing artist

    Yeah, definitely stop tipping. What has she even done to warrant more tips? Otherwise, sounds like you may be hitting ultimatum territory.

    How about a General Forum?

  8. I am just. appalled. I mean. I have so many things I could say. But I guess I just want this down for the record: Just because it's common place, doesn't make it right. And that's in reference to the ridiculously long wait times/queues for fursuits and fursuit makers being unable to manage money correctly. It's commonplace. But is is not right. Of course she brought up other excuses, but that one in particular I wanted to comment on. Thank you for writing this beware.

    @Alex Wright @Alkraas Highlight all the text and hold ctrl while right clicking. That is the extra context menu. =]
  10. @Alkraas it sounds like they're paying a price for the slot... Perhaps the artist doesn't open for slots very often or is under such heavy demand that slots are taken within seconds/minutes. I'm with the others... I'd never participate in it personally but if the artist is such high demand that clients are willing to pay that, good for them.
  11. Sounds good! Just remember if you don't actually get the files by the date you originally stated (31 Jan), to continue through with the partial refund inquiry. But try to assume the best of the artist! Good luck!
  12. Yes, that looks good. Also yes, you should email that to the artist. @Moogle
  13. Alright awesome. So write the ultimatum quoting this, and ask for those things or a partial refund. Toss out a number for the refund (aim higher than you actually want). See if the artist will deliver what is due, refund you, or haggle on the refund.
  14. Didn't you not realize they were going to email you the hi-res in the first place? If it's not something I explicitly paid for, I'd probably just let it go, honestly. But this is something you'd likely have to hunt through their Terms of Service (TOS) for. Many artists state what resolutions they work in, or at least that there is a "higher" one given over email. If your artist's TOS or commission info notes that anywhere, you can bring it up with them and ask that they provide the higher quality image to you via email as they state they do in their TOS.
