  1. It's so disappointing to see that Ryun has not improved or changed over the last couple of years. She seemed to be really trying to make strides to change, but it was obvious she was so far behind with long periods of inactivity, a burst of taking a bunch of new slots, and then more inactivity. Her prices being so low combined with this behavior of taking tons of slots/disappearing, there's no way she can climb out of this hole without making some really major changes to her work ethic and prices.
  2. I'm frankly surprised she only has as few bewares as she has. She's been quite unprofessional for awhile with a queue that's very long in the tooth. I've been following her for a couple of years with hopes that she'd dig herself out, but it doesn't seem she's improved at all with her business or work ethic. Personal life is not an excuse to ignore your job.
  3. What a complicated situation. Is this one of the Abyss Drakes that Adiago has been trying to snatch back ownership and claimed was "stolen"? That's the only reason I could see her or someone else caring about whether it's drawn or not by another artist. That behavior is what got Adiago permanently banned from FA. In the end though, the drama between Raven and Adiago should have NEVER involved the artist whatsoever. The idea of "taking back" characters is a whole nother can of worms in itself but it's an act that I strongly disagree with artists doing. Raven should never have edited the art or done such a MASSIVE chargeback on a fully finished piece, like you must be absolutely out your mind to think that's acceptable at all. Your drama and petty issues with Adiago do not extend to this artist, they just wanted to avoid the drama in it's entirety by not drawing the character anymore and by leaving the credits in tact.
  4. I have to agree with cknsausage. Personally, if I was sent a reference of an anthro for the pose but a feral reference for the character, I'd have assumed they meant they wanted the character drawn as an anthro. I've worked with multiple clients who relied on feral ref sheets due to whatever reasons but wanted me to draw them as anthros and generally were given guidelines like that. Being that English isn't their first language, it further complicates the situation. The artist went out of their way to try and fix the situation by providing multiple cleaned up approval sketches, which tells me that they did want to resolve the issue. It was really on you to clarify what you wanted before they began working. You also make an assumption that you're the only thing they have to work on by asking what they were doing between messages to you, which kind of rubs me the wrong way. Many artists have jobs outside of art, are in college, or usually have a queue. While they should have been more proactive in responding to you, that doesn't mean that you're the only job they have. When they offered a refund, you acted increasingly pushy and agitated about it. You should have accepted the refund at that point rather than pressing them and attacking them about accidentally drawing your character as an anthro. I feel like the beware is warranted on both parties. The artist for communication issues, and the commissioner for behavioral issues.
  5. This artist's attitude is absolutely disgusting. Their TOS, them reselling OP's character, their attitude towards OP through this whole exchange. This is one of the nastiest attitudes I have ever in my life seen from an artist.
  6. I was informed privately today that Beauregardent has switched names to https://www.furaffinity.net/user/solasoleil/ . In addition, they're using a new Paypal and fake name making it harder to track them. Unfortunately, at this point I am no longer the only victim of their scamming. I have urged other victims of theirs to come forward and post up Bewares of their own since their behavior hasn't stopped. Over the last few months I've been informed of both tracing and chargebacks that they've done. Please if you've been scammed or had someone trace your work, write up a post here. It can help compile all their crimes in one place.
  7. I have to agree with Celestina, this user sounds underage. Between the way they're behaving and how they type, I get the impression they're around 16. Unfortunately people CAN lie when it comes to claiming to be 18. While having that in your TOS can waive legal issues, it doesn't stop minors from lying in order to commission something. Additionally, I really don't appreciate them using my comment as part of their crusade and drama. I even said in my comment that they shouldn't be making a claim/trying to resell something they didn't pay for. REGARDLESS of if the design was made for them, they still didn't pay for it and don't get to lay claim to that art period.
  8. Thank you for the clarification! That's what I kinda thought was going on but I wasn't absolutely sure. Edit: Fixed a typo
  9. I have to say this beware is extremely strange to me. Due to the pseudo-legalize speak you're using to explain the situation it's hard to really understand what the commission was about. As someone who commissions art, I would be extremely aggravated if someone designed a character to my specifications, cancelled the commission, and kept or planned to resell the design elsewhere. I'm of the opinion that no work should have started before payment was exchanged. I dunno this is a weird one for me. Artists have the right to cancel a commission when they want but with designing a character it becomes a little shakier because you effectively took their concept and claimed it as your own and are only deleting it due to the backlash. I will add their harassment of you is completely uncalled for and they shouldn't be making unfounded accusations or sending people to harass you. Nor should they be attempting to resell a design they never actually paid for. This is a messy situation all around.
  10. I mean the fact his behavior was bad enough that Pebbles refunded him after the first commission (there's two commissions mentioned in this post), that itself is a huge indicator of potential future problems and he should have been blacklisted right there. I know we all like to be super forgiving of people's behaviors, especially when money is involved because a lot of us are starving artists, but we should still be mindful of red flag behavior and protect ourselves.
  11. I would have refused business from the start and blacklisted him after the issues around the first commission. There's a ton of red flags for his behavior and it's completely unacceptable how he acted.
  12. Man what a horrible situation all around. They're so disrespectful of your art and I would have charged them extra for all the changes. The fact you went in and redid the background to fit the image is so above and beyond. The flipflopping also sounds like they were showing it to a friend for an opinion, but unfortunately friends tend to not give honest opinions on situations like this and were likely reinforcing their opinion that it was 'rushed'. It's such a shame because it's a REALLY beautiful piece and their behavior towards you was uncalled for.
  13. I was told by someone over Discord that they are now switching over names to https://twitter.com/Belle_Nouveau (from @/jbeauregardent) and Belle_Nouveau over Discord. I figured it may be important to keep the beware up to date with recent pseudonyms. They're still using their previous FA account name and TH name but it's possible they may switch them too in the future.
  14. I dunno, I disagree. A person should be aware of the artist's skill level and style before approaching them for a commission. The way the fingers/arms are drawn appear to be how they draw in general, and it's also a difficult pose to pull off with foreshortening. Even some of the most skilled artists can fuck it up (and I've had to draw similar poses and it isn't easy). Complaining/critiquing an artist's anatomy after you commissioned them does seem like nitpicking when you should have already been aware of how they draw and their level of skill going in. If I were expected to draw things perfectly that I don't have the skillset for and then being critiqued/nitpicked over it, that would turn me off from that client and I would refund them. Particularly because a lot of commissioners don't know what they're talking about and often ask for things that are impossible or give inappropriate/wrong critique. Asking for changes to missing colors, markings, etc is one thing. But telling someone that you don't like x body part is drawn is another thing (and can be VERY vague and unhelpful anyways).
  15. That refund policy is really weird and absolutely shady. They don't get to keep a partial amount on work not done. That's not how it works. Them conveniently having it align with the PayPal dispute window is really suss. I also don't understand their refusal in adding the white outline and shadow? That's really easy to do and takes like five seconds using selection tools. It's pretty obvious they just wanted you out of their hair as fast as possible. This one actually doesn't surprise me. I've had people contact me about refunds who said they were afraid to ask because they didn't want to be blacklisted (I don't blacklist over refunds). It seems to be a semi-common practice. I actually agree. That was excessive and would be no different than spamming someone's FA shoutbox with the beware link. While I understand OP's frustration, they were definitely veering into harassment.
