  1. It looks like a lot of their social media has gone dormant, but their Patreon seems to be presently active as they've posted within the past two weeks. Have you tried shooting them an e-mail? It looks like there's one listed on their contact form.
  2. I'm going to touch on this bit right here, since Cel covered the majority of your concerns succinctly. If you, as a customer, have done nothing wrong in your circumstances, then this fear is massively irrational, and you gotta suck it up and push through. We have rather extensive guidelines for posting an alert on this site to avoid the rigamoroll of misinformation, miscommunication and mob mentality that one would see on greater social media (i.e. twitter, toyhouse, etc) if going the route of the "callout post". To retaliate against someone who is only interested in bringin
  3. When the description is vague, essentially its a roll of the dice on your situation here. What you've described implies that other materials, that do not pertain to the original listing, were in the mix to be used, which logically leads me to believe you got something more towards the "could get more" end of the spectrum vs the original scraps. You're in the right of it to be direct about what you want to see, along with visual aids to be precise about what you'd like to be would be enough to cover you. If you can place the products side by side with what you requested vs what y
  4. On and off for the past year or so they always mention a backlog of commissions, and they've posted a good chunk of high-end adoptables for sale. Many of them at the cost, if not higher than your commission slot here. So it shouldn't be impossible to refund you if with how frequently these design sales popped up. I was watching them for so long and it just looked like a repeating pattern of 'life happening' so they couldn't work, but continued to do one-offs or open more slots despite journal after journal speaking about people who've been on the backburner with commissions and getti
  5. I've supported artists via similar tiers in the past, and for the most part, they make a courtesy post before the next cycle to inform them of your subject for your sketch for the very reasons outlined by the artist you've noted above. I'm of the same mindset of Bornes that if you don't use it, you lose it and tbh? It is not a dealbreaker/beware-worthy that an artist did not deliver on a promised reward because it was on *me* to provide them a character reference for the art reward. Some months I'd plumb forget that I was part of that tier and I would just request sporadically, I was
  6. If you join & scroll up in this channel, there's invite links to the "VIP" discord server as well. You didn't need to do anything special to join it, it was meant to be some sort of priority slot list if you hung around. But the discord itself was not active, also worth a shot to see if you can catch BluHuny via discord to reach them wherever possible.
  7. I previously had issues with BluHuny myself last year. The commissions channel has not seen an update from them since last September, but they did not delete the account where I initially had contact with them for my transaction, the fuzzy timestamp implies that the account may not be active at the moment, but its worth a shot to maybe contact them there? But with their track record at this point, who even knows, really.
  8. Both names & number tags can easily be changed via discord, which can make it difficult to block people or report them for getting around your blocks. Just as a general heads up for anyone asking for a discord tag, there's an ID that cannot be changed, and its accessible via Advanced Tools/Developer mode, and you'll be able to get a more definitive acct link in the event the individual might have access to Discord Nitro to change their #0000 associated /w their username 😆
  9. Ah I was mostly curious to clarify that they'd be able to recoup the funds without having to bother waiting for Minami to suddenly turn over a new leaf. And while the piece does retain the look/feel of a generic moe girl, the basis used was the OP's sona, which leaves an awful taste in my mouth overall. If the piece received additional edits to remove all traces of the OP's personal character, I don't see it as an issue... but with how they treated their client makes me believe this was done in bad faith. But at the end of the day it's up to the OP on how they view this, I just fig
  10. My apologies mods for double posting, I was attempting to edit my previous comment. In looking at the artist's twitter page, it looks like they've sold the OP's fursona to another individual? Screencap for posterity. It seems like they finished the image in spite of the break down in communication. But it does not appear to be posted on their twitter for viewing.
  11. Hey OP, with the transfer of funds in question, how did you send them to Minami? I'm not seeing that in your post, only mentioned. For the most part, with most of the services I've seen used, I believe you're well within your window to dispute the charge to get refunded for this situation in full. With Paypal, you're definitely in the clear as their window is 180 days.
  12. You can't let yourself get caught up in the anxiety and the what ifs, without putting your foot forward, you can't make a step towards any sort of resolution. It's as easy as 'Hey I'm ___, I commissioned you ___. I would like a refund as I am no longer interested in the artwork.' If they pussyfoot around the issue, post a beware and chalk things up as a loss.
  13. Is this artist established in their craft? Did they have any TOS or agreement that you could gather at the time you commissioned them? Just on the barebones information you provided, the best way to go about this situation is to send it back and ask for a refund? Or eat the loss. In both cases, I'd think it's at least worth a caution, if not a beware regarding their work.
  14. You're getting EXTREMELY close to the end of your six month window, Varek. I wouldn't let this go past that at all with the amount of money you paid for the badge, go through paypal for your refund, or you're without options afterwards 😞
  15. Hey OP, have you tried contacting Bluhuny since you made your post? Local friends of mine who attended PawCon this past weekend as vendors were stationed near his booth, where he was also vending. As I was told by him when I attempted to commission him back in January, he "only" opens up slots for more commissions via Cons as a vendor, so there's a strong possibility that the queue has grown since you made your post here. Definitely push for your refund before it gets buried with his backlog!
