  1. First of all, there is no such monthly fee through Paypal. I operate a business account and have been using Paypal for well over a decade, there has NEVER been any such fee. That is a really weird thing to lie about unless it's to guilt trip people into sending via friends/family as a "oh Paypal already fees me, so you don't have to send as a goods/services :(". Obviously as others pointed out, you are not responsible for her Paypal fees and she could get reported to Paypal for skimming off the top like that. Secondly, that is such an extreme response to such a small and minor change and I really don't like how she treated you when it's your character being drawn. As an aside I, personally, don't really catch what the issue is with the nose because red pandas do have sort of "thick" muzzles and large noses proportionate to their size, and that absolutely could be a stylistic thing and how she approaches red panda faces. The only real difference I see between the sketch (that you were happy with) vs the finished product is that the sketch had a big circular nose while the finished product has a smaller heart-shaped nose. Her behavior was absolutely awful though, she should never have reacted that way and if it was such an issue, an edit with a fee would have been a good middle ground for both of you.

    Beware: Voegel

    Disappointing but not surprising. I remember years back Voegal had issues with delivering commissions and would repeatedly and constantly disappear and reappear on FA.
  3. This is one of the nastiest things I've ever seen someone do. How utterly disgusting and disrespectful. I'm glad it was resolved by both the artist and FA admins.
  4. Absolutely not. If I want a refund from someone because I don't like how they conduct business or their attitude, I'm entitled to a full refund if work has not begun.
  5. Just letting everyone know this has been resolved as of now with a full refund.
  6. They've posted a lot of unnecessary information about their upbringing on Twitter regarding the situation as well as continuing the mention the anxiety. I grew up in poverty and an abusive home too and I'm always extremely aware of my finances, how much money I have, where it came from, and where it's going. They've also been oversharing their mental health problems with me over Discord, which I told them really wasn't relevant to the transaction issues. They've told me it's not really a "blackout" as much as it is suppressing emotions surrounding things they do that is "bad" and/or "embarrassing", which to me speaks volumes and tells me that it was intentional and they knew it was wrong but proceeded forth with both transactions anyways.
  7. I sent Celestina an update to add to the post later, but I have gotten $195/400 so far. Unfortunately I have no idea if the trade had to do with the same PoofyLion design or a different one but I've had people imply to me that they've been involved in other shady deals. I don't like the mental health excuse myself because I have pretty extreme anxiety and severe depression and I never pull stuff like this or use it as an excuse in regards to business transactions.
  8. The other person was very invested in the character and I don't think they'd want a refund for her, the original owner also got involved at one point and was extremely upset as well by this entire situation. The whole thing shouldn't have happened.
  9. I had expressed interest in a character Beauregardent had in their TH and had offered to trade for it. Eventually they told me over Discord they'd be willing to sell her to me for what they paid. They promised they'd hold her for a few days while I got the funds together, and on the 1st I paid $300, and the remaining $100 on the 6th. Unfortunately I don't have the messages to our original conversation, but I do have the DMs concerning payment and paypal screenshots. Today, August 21, I was informed by someone on TH that they'd also bought the same character from the same person. (I'm DeadGalaxy) When I showed them the logs of the sale, we've come to the conclusion this was done intentionally and was no mistake because while I had sent my first payment first, they had paid Beauregardent only a couple of days later. From the other buyer: I have never had a situation like this concerning character trades/sales and it is upsetting, both for the amount paid and the trust breached. I DM'd Beauregardent at the start of this info being sent to me but at this point I still haven't gotten a response from Beauregardent on resolving the situation. Edit: $195/$400 has been refunded. Edit2: The adoptable has been refunded.
  10. I dunno if you're confused but I'm not defending Lemonbrat or part of their group, I was just saying that suit reads way more as feline than what Camaro received. I wasn't necessarily saying it's more accurate of a big cat either, just that it's clearly feline while Camaro's head is obviously a rodent head, and the tail is much thinner and more accurately represents a feline tail than the one Camaro got.
  11. These are the parts that stick out to me, because they clearly CAN create a big cat suit that reads as feline.
  12. The issue only "cropped up recently" because that's when the suit actually was being made and they began receiving photos. Their concern about the wrong head base being used should have absolutely been taken seriously. Ignoring the other issues, that is not the correct species whatsoever and doesn't look anything like a feline. They brought this issue up and were brushed aside and told it'd look like a cat when furred (which it doesn't).
  13. The profile still looks like a rodent head, this is truly appalling. And the thing is that the suits on their site are decent, you'd expect so much higher quality than what this commissioner received. I can't get over how badly attached the tail is.
  14. Thank you for the explanation! I don't see how/why they would have chosen this style of fur instead of just shaving down faux fur like most suits. It looks appalling.
  15. This is pretty bad quality. Is that even faux fur? It looks like minky fabric which I....don't think I've seen a suit made with before. It looks so wrinkly, they didnt even attempt to make the zipper discrete, the tail looks slapped on, the whole thing is so low quality for the price tag paid, they should have the experience to know better. Have they sent photos of the finished head from the front? I'd be curious to see how that came out with them pushing a rodent base.
