If you have to ask... the answer is probably gonna be no. But that's fine. 8^|
  1. Let me preface I have a small bias AGAINST Lemonbrat or well a member of the group persay from when they did cosplay commissions. I did not participate in the approval and I tried to stay out but there is too much here to be quiet. I did participate in the agreement to go from Caution to Beware due to witnessing LB literally obliterate timeframes. OP would never receive the suit in a timely manner due to location, international shipping and customs by the time they finished it. This suit ideally should have been finished and gone to OP by the first week of JUNE. To me that's the latest because even if you rushed the shipping customs is a pain. My next concerns: The tail. Neither tail I saw read 'feline' to me. Even if you are making a puma to fit a human figure, the size ration is off. And that closure is awful on it. It visually looks stapled or tacked on like Eeyore's tail. The head is rodent and even furred up, it's a rodent with feline coloring. The ears are the worse of it. They are too round and ill-shaped for a feline. They splay out when they really need to point upwards. Choice of fur. OP came to you for the service. You have the knowledge (or should) of how their choices would perform. It's a beautiful color but it obviously doesn't do full body justice. At best a partial. And I say this as someone who only interacts with suits via this community! EVA Foam and worbla are my thing. The choice to cut literal pecs into the front. They're uneven. I don't think you even picked seams on the chest (or any of it), and I quickly Googled fur tutorials for fashion; all say pick your seams to clean up the work. If the OP wanted a femme form without actual breasts, was light stuffing or gentle foam fabricated mounds not an idea? I hate to say it but that chest looks post-mastectomy which if that's what they want; grand. But I don't think it was. Lastly because this is very long: communications and policies. You think you're allaying fears but you were telling OP to deal. Bad move. Also why would you not stick to your guns of a full DTD? Pick a policy and stand by it. If you want to deliver quality, demand a DTD or cancel and refund. 3k is too much damn money to bet on someone not local's measurements! LB you owe OP either a functional appealing suit. A refund. Or just a partial refund (50%) and the suit so they can... try to save it. Your own choices and lack of confidence/customer service/timekeeping lead to this. Less PR statements and more communication with Camaro.
  2. Since we approve all comments, extra contact not needed. Since the situation has been resolved to your satisfaction I added the appropriate tag.
  3. Changed Resolved to Yes
  4. Not a big issue; but this isn't a beware but a "caution". Enough to give pause; but also enough you can take it with a grain of salt. Everything else you said I am in full agreement with.
  5. This caution post is so painful to read. I feel for you and the time lost; but I also applaud you for basically calling the "client's" bluff regarding court and Hasbro and not letting them get away with shenanigans.
  6. I'm going to remind you guys to knock off pushing the OP to get a refund. They do not want a refund. They want the art. Please do not disrespect their desires in this.
  7. You're fine to use this app for reference, I've used it a few times myself.
  8. Please see either the top of this post OR the screencap I attached below (which is of the top of this post). We already made it a Caution post due to the artist's behavior. Which while no it is not BAD persay... but frustrating for this particular client who felt that others should be aware of how Strype works.
  9. OP if you could confirm you received a refund we will tag this as resolved.
  10. I'm in California sitting in the middle of one of the worst storms we've had since the Rain Season began.
  11. Hi! I'm Xaila aka Xai. I'm the other one. Everything Cel broke down is true! And fear not, we are here to help as long as you are willing to understand that: We're volunteer run so "post this immediately" doesn't work on us. You do your best to follow the submission guidelines. If we say it goes; just get rid of it don't attempt to justify it. If we sense its not there or all right; we're going to act on that. Don't be surprised if we ask a lot of questions. The staff is incredibly flexible and understanding as we all do some sort of art or building as a craft. And lastly... I accept fine French pastries as bribes.

    MEET ABBIE

    So you've seen the little alpaca pal in a few of my posts to the LJ comm, right? Well this is her in her final form! Meet Abbie the Alpaca of Artists Beware. She's ready to get to work being our happy mascot! Facts: She's a Fawn/Dark Rose spotted alpaca Her ties come in many colors Her torso shaped like an egg-friend Dat Floof hides a long neck She's an earthbender Her favorite food is apple brown betty Abbie is a creative endevor between myself (original design) and Neolucky (final design). We hope you enjoy Abbie as much as we do! Cheers!♥
  13. Conversely though? At the end of the day; you are only entitled to the time of an Artist on a Client basis UNLESS THEY reach out first for something outside the bounds of business. You cannot force a friendship or anyone to pay attention to you. Even with money. Everything Cel said is true and valid for what AB is here for.We're not here to make people be friends or even attempt it. We're here to hold artists and clients accountable for their business practices/behaviors. A resolution need not be everyone gets along amiably that's just not how it works.
