  1. Let's count the flags.. 1. 'Wahh my PTSD' (hm.. foreshadowing?) 3. 'Wahhh I'm having a tantrum and attributing it to a manic episode' 4. 'It's hard for me to manage the necessary tasks to run my business' 5. 'Birthday present for my nephew is more important than the money you paid me for a service I never completed' 6. Guilt trip : 'let me just refund you with my first-born / soul' 7. 'Omg gaslighting me' 8. <Lots of insults by the artist and mocking the client>. Always a good method to dealing with clients /s Soz but if you have the money to buy presents for people then you've definitely got money to refund. I hate it when artists do that - it basically screams 'you're a low priority right' to their customers. Also, your personal mental health is NEVER a reason to treat customers like this. Every artist I know (myself included) has mental health problems in some capacity. Except, we don't use that as an excuse to steal someone else's hard earned money. That's especially disgusting. If you need to step back from art for health reasons, refund work not started, and be upfront with clients. Don't dick them around and DEFINITELY don't hide behind 'mental health' as an excuse for poor behaviour.
  2. Really rubs me wrong how Lobo is going on and on about 'charity stream'. That's not relevant at all and just twists the narrative to make them look better while the commissioner(s) are left in the lurch. Why does it matter at all if it's a charity sketch? That should be firmly behind paid work from 2+ yrs ago.
  3. ITT: People defending awful work. Also, I thought this part of Lemonbrat's defense was pretty funny: Sorry, what? If this is what Lemonbrat considers an average sample of their suits, then I dread to think what they would consider a 'botched' suit. Because this is a budget suit AT BEST. Not worth 3.6k. The head looks nothing like a feline base and as 'professionals' Lemonbrat should have known that fur would not magically make the head into a feline's. This one spins me out a bit because it's so obvious.
  4. iNtEnDeD tO pAy eVeRyOnE bAcK doesn't really hold much weight when you file chargebacks on purpose to see who can't be bothered chasing you up 🤔
  5. Oh man I thought it sounded familiar and yep.. they are already pre-blocked haha. I think I saw another beware post about them. I'm pretty sure Paypal cannot 'glitch' and open several (?!?) disputes conveniently against several different artists at once. I can't believe he would think anyone would buy that bullsh*t.
  6. Just do what everyone else does and build it into your pricing scheme. Paypal also bans people from paying for NSFW stuff but that's stops exactly 0 people lol.
  7. 'Making me look bad now are we?' No hun you do that yourself 😃 if stating facts about the situation paints you in a bad light... it's time for some introspection. Know what else makes one look bad? Shitting on other people's pricing. Furry art is already priced somewhere between 'busker' and 'scratch-in-the-dirt', its dirty AF to try and reduce it THAT much.
  8. That's their problem, not yours. And technically nobody has bought it because the price to be paid was never delivered, so they're just paying for art for someone else's character - realistically speaking. I'd call them out on their discord because what they're doing is not cool, and maybe that will jerk them back into reality - where you pay for the stuff you want (via money or otherwise). I'd give them a deadline, and if still no response just offer the character up for sale again - maybe nobody bites, maybe someone does, but until the art is delivered as promised it's still your character. Doesn't look like they're going to give you the art to me though, especially if they're making a point of ignoring you (also - who gets art of a character they haven't even paid off yet??).
  9. That is not unusual - I know that's the policy myself and quite a few other artists adopt. Artists hold supreme copyrights over their art, not the commissioner, so if they don't want the full res being posted elsewhere then that is entirely within their right. You're paying for their time to make the art. The art itself is the by-product, the payment is usually considered to be for labour (ie, doing the art). So that would be an incorrect assumption. Again, I don't see the issue with a blacklist - I DO see a problem with the vague refund part (for instance in my ToS I have a piece about how I will absolutely not work with rude or arrogant commissioners - frankly because I've dealt with them before and they're never worth the money you get from them). But in mine I also will refund if payment has been taken before they show themselves as such. Personally I think the part about no due dates or a public queue is a bit of a problem, because then from the other side (the client's point of view) - that leaves a lot of room for uncertainty - especially given the paypal claim deadline is 6 months. The lack of a queue means they also can't verify how long it usually takes the artist to do to the work so.. personally if I was a commissioner I would give it a miss based on that.
  10. Can't find the twitter but their FA is certainly full of people asking about refunds / where their commissions are.. not a very good sign. Also, found this on their DA which got me good lol
  11. Always a massive red-flag to ask for money as 'friends and family'. I think you lose buyer protection doing that. Hope you get your money back, that's a sizeable chunk!
  12. Even if one were to entertain the thought of it being a joke by someone else, let's list the red flags: - No message to the artist after these mysterious 'friend's' messages were sent - surely that's something you'd rush to apologize for / explain? And the artist responded sooo.. not likely they didn't see it - Somehow doesn't have the TG chat after only a couple of weeks - 'Abruptly excused myself (unsaid) - again, what? Just didn't return to check the messages.. ever? - Throws friend (if they exist) under the bus with generic excuses ('they steal and aren't all there mentally'). Cool. Hmmmmm.. surely, apologizing is less effort than trying to divert and place blame where it's not due? Lmao, honestly. This dude is ridiculous.
  13. Ooh, definitely blocking that one. Just.. honestly what goes on in some people's heads? Even art that is paid for the artist retains copyright to except if they've explicitly signed that right away (for a sizeable sum, hopefully). Your art, he owns nothing - especially since he didn't even pay for it! Just laugh in his face and go on your merry way.
  14. 100% agree with you! Her termination of service is very iffy and especially paired with the extensive wait times from payment until starting the commission (conveniently, outside paypal's buyer protection window). I agree with your method as well, refund, block and blacklist - but ALWAYS refund. Bad buyers are pretty rare in my experience (woo!) so luckily this isn't a common occurence for me, but the times I have had to do it I've always fully refunded, even if I've sunk hours into discussing / working already.
  15. Absolutely, I agree! I would never refer to it like that, it's very unprofessional - I just wanted to point out that having a right to refuse service clause isn't a red flag (IMO). Calling it an a**hole clause is a red flag though, lol.
