https://artists-beware.livejournal.com/1003255.html WHO: Jailbird WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jailbird/ WHAT: a two-character digital painting with a background WHEN: November 2013 EXPLAIN: Jailbird on furaffinity has promised to refund a commission that she does not plan to complete, but has been avoiding every attempt I have made to contact her on various sites. I paid for my commission in 2013, and was put on a refund list en masse with 100 or so other commissioners. No one on the list has been refunded. Here is the list in question. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-8n-8_u2SMdgYx9LQBy0rL0YYFfE_F7e19nIMYrarH0/edit#gid=0 And the transaction: https://78.media.tumblr.com/91e3ca8dccc6db1ad755e786f04a8386/tumblr_pb1zyfwz0J1rauz49o1_1280.jpg I have emailed Jailbird twice within the past two months, as a response to her apology journal claiming she would clean up her act. She has not responded to any of my emails. I noted her on FA 3 months ago asking about the refund status. She has read the note but has not responded. https://78.media.tumblr.com/cb1d72ccc51f30bbea0956e827e084d9/tumblr_pb6o98S3st1rauz49o1_1280.jpg https://78.media.tumblr.com/bf1d4cd4a6366d78ba50610267350d6d/tumblr_pb6o98S3st1rauz49o2_1280.jpg I post comments on journals and leave shouts but she has not attempted to engage with me anywhere, and everyone else on that refund list is getting the same treatment.

https://artists-beware.livejournal.com/798520.html WHO: Jailbird WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jailbird/ WHAT: A single character flat color SFW art WHEN: about two and half months ago PROOF: Comment on journal http://i.imgur.com/7lEaE1X.png Later a note asking if it was ok to move from sketch to flat color http://i.imgur.com/6CZPXwy.png And payment sent http://i.imgur.com/RweU93m.png EXPLAIN: After the payment was sent. I could never get them to answer anything! Noted them about a month after I ordered the picture cause I wasn't on any updated lists http://i.imgur.com/Tacgs40.png Also publicly commented hoping they'd answer http://i.imgur.com/KkmhHhg.png never got it. After a week or so of no contact what so ever I noted them once more http://i.imgur.com/kJr3hz0.png making them aware if I didn't hear back I'd be taking it up with paypal. So when I got no please still I did just that. After no reply I noticed I was on their refund list? http://i.imgur.com/bylRZEz.png and I also commented publicly about that as well http://i.imgur.com/guolLxW.png They never got back to, no reply to notes after they got payment. I don't mind waiting for art, but you need to keep updated. When you keep taking slots it makes people worry and you really should reply back! I did get my money back http://i.imgur.com/c2LcETd.png without them replying once to that even. I was very happy when I was able to get a slot, cause I've wanted art from Jailbird for a while now. After this I have unfollowed them and never want to deal with them, because they don't seem to care to reply to comments or notes to people that have paid them for work.
ORIGINAL POSTING DATE: March 28th, 2011 Ok, I'm posting this as a warning so no one else has to go through the hell I did with this artist. She goes by Jailbird on FA. Back in December, I commissioned a 2 character adult piece from her, since she's my girl's favorite artist. I didn't expect it by Christmas, but I had assumed it would make a nice Valentine's Day gift. It took me a while to get ahold of her to confirm the commission, which looking back, should have been a red flag. She asked for the payment in full up front, so I sent off a large sum of money to her for this piece. I then noted her, asking approximately how long it would take, just because I was excited and curious. After about a week and a half, I get a reply from her, stating that it would be done sometime in February. I thank her for replying, and go about my business. Valentine's day comes and goes, and I hear nothing. I let it go, since she said it would be done in that month, but when it gets to be February 26th, I start to wonder. She's been taking and completing iron artist pieces all month, and I haven't heard a word, so I just note her, considering she had said she would send me an approval sketch. She didn't respond, and it took me posting publicly on her page to even get her to read the note. She finally responded, apologizing for the wait and told me she would start my piece that night, and I would have a sketch by the next day. I thank her, still being extremely polite and kind at this point, and go back to my business to wait for this piece. The next day comes and goes, and I get nothing. I note her AGAIN, asking for an update. I tell her I don't mind if it has to take longer than expected, but to please just let me know. If something comes up, I understand, but I would just like to be informed. She tells me my sketch is complete and she just needs to scan it. A week later, and I haven't seen anything. I note her again, asking to see the sketch. She responds fairly quickly and I receive the sketch of my piece. She claims she had a lot of fixing to do with it online, but I approve it, because the sketch looks good. She notes me a few days later, asking what sort of background I want. I tell her whatever looks good for the picture, because I was giving her artistic freedom to begin with. So another week or so goes by, and I hear nothing. She posts a journal, opening for more commissions, so I comment on it asking about my piece. This was the beginning of last week. She tells me my picture will be done Thursday. As expected, Thursday comes and goes, and I hear nothing. So I note her again, just wondering what happened. She sends me my piece on Sunday, telling me she couldn't do a background on it, and would refund me the extra for a background. So hopefully that happens. But it wasn't the lack of background that bothered me. It was the obvious rush job on the coloring of the piece. Not only is there strange shading and lighting, that makes the whole picture look a bit warped, and the light seems out of place, but she completely forgot all facial markings on both characters. I'm not one to nitpick markings, but when you forget my characters patch on her eye, or my girlfriend's distinctive orange star on her face and her raccoon mask, along with her ear tips? That's something I'll nitpick. So this is where it stands currently. Here's some screenshots of the notes and comments I sent and received: Notes inquiring about my piece after it had been due: i53.tinypic.com/10i8n5w.png i56.tinypic.com/13z8k1k.png Notes about my sketch: i53.tinypic.com/bj9uee.png i51.tinypic.com/sfyyx3.png Her telling me my piece would be done last Thursday: i56.tinypic.com/ixtjir.png EDIT: Here's the "finished" piece (NSFW): i54.tinypic.com/o0xev9.png Her FA: www.furaffinity.net/user/jailbird/ EDIT: Ok, so I've spoken to her again, and she has fixed the shading and stuff and made the piece look a lot nicer and a lot less rushed. I'm really happy with it now.
