  1. Depending on how close it is to the deadline, I'd give an ultimatum of either completed work or a refund before the deadline. If the ultimatum isn't met, file a chargeback before the window closes.
  2. I respect artist trying to get better and fix their mistakes, but honestly? This is probably the biggest thing that needs to be fixed. Right here. This is very unprofessional, as well as the constant stream of journals always including the "I am a single parent with no time" excuses. I'm sure transparency is appreciated by your clients, Chesta, but I'm fairly certain they have all heard this song and dance hundreds of times now. When providing updates, all that should be given is an update on the client's particular commission. No one needs to know what's going on in your personal life. If something gets in the way, "I got tied up, I'm sorry. I'll get your work done [insert timeframes here]" should be all that's necessary. (And actually stick to that timeframe on top)
  3. I get the feeling that the reason she tends to take on work before coming close to finishing old work is because she spends the money before she's done and needs to fill up again to fund the refunds. Which is in itself a red flag as well.
  4. I've been following Chesta for a while, and while it's sad to see her here, I can't say I'm surprised. Over the years I've noticed that she has a habit of taking on more work and building on to her queue without finishing work at the same rate, and it's always made me wary of ordering something. I hope you get a resolution to this, a year for art really is too long.
  5. Some auction styles adopts go for that much, but yeah it is hard to sell custom designs for that much. The most mine ever went for was $60 (original work full ref type thing) in an auction war. $5-$30 seems to be the normal range among the furry community as I've seen over the years.
  6. I used charge for the time I put into it. Like, if I used a base, typically coloring would take me 30 minutes if it's simple or a hour or more for more complexity. Then anything I add, like jewelry as your example, would add to the time. Back when I did adopts, I charged at least $10 an hour, so they would range between $5 and $15 as a result. If you go by the hourly price, make sure you're charging at least your area's minimum wage.
