Around 2 months ago, an artist by the name of Ynesiarte was offering some headshot commissions. I took interest in their art style and the cheap pricing, so I commented on their post on FurAffinity to claim a slot (which I cannot show because they deleted their FurAffinity account). Then then reached out to me, and gave me their payment information. I sent payment via PayPal and it was confirmed that payment had gone through. I then waited a couple of days, and wondering where my commission was, (they said in the FurAffinity post that the commission would take 1-2 days) I contacted them and being as polite as I could, asked about my commission. ' They then replied that they had another social account somewhere in which they were also taking orders, and that they were sorry for the delay and that they didn’t warn me in advance. I should’ve taken the red flag that they were taking in many commissions at a time, but I instantly forgave them, took that as a sufficient amount of information, and because I saw other people’s commissions being completed and posted on their FurAffinity Gallery, (which I cannot show due to them deleting their account) I had hope that it would be finished. I waited for a month with no updates, and part of this is on me, but I was so busy with life at the time and I didn’t want to feel like I was bombarding a poor artist who was already doing many commissions at a time just to make money. So I waited, and after a month of being fed up with waiting and no update, I sent a message asking what was going on, and saying that if they were too busy to take my commission, I would happily take a refund. That message wasn’t even read, and so I just ignored the situation for a while, hoping and assuming it was an emergency of some kind. After checking in another month later, (a couple days ago) I realized that they had deleted their FurAffinity account entirely, maybe because of an emergency, or maybe to avoid the long and overwhelming list of commissions that they had build up over the course of a couple of months. Im posting this beware because they might try to rebrand themselves and sell more art, but because I don’t have pictures of their art, I can’t officially prove if someone I find might be them rebranded and such, which is frustrating. I tried looking them up on all social media platforms after their FurAffinity account was deleted under the same username Ynesiarte, but it came to no avail. I really don’t know what this beware will do to help anyone due to their account being deleted and such, but if they come back up onto any platform, I personally would not commission any art from them. They proved to be immensely lacking in proper communication with the client, ignored my attempts at reaching out to them, and in the end, didn’t deliver the final product they promised me and I didn’t receive anything close to a refund. Luckily, the commission was only around $15, so I didn’t have to learn this lesson too hard, but just be aware of you are commissioning. I really hate to do this to someone and post a beware about them, but they left me no other choice. Thank you for reading my beware. Proof: This was the first note after I commented on their post on FurAffinity under the account Ynesiarte. I then sent payment. Waited for around 3-4 days, and then finally reached out to them. They replied, as seen below. Then, after a month had past, I sent the message below to them. As you can see in the screenshot after that, this same message had not been read by them (the shaded people are other artists I have noted and commissioned during this time). Their account was still up at the time, so either there was an emergency, (which I was suspecting at the time was the case) they just didn’t get the message, (which seems unlikely as I messaged them that same way before and they got my messages just fine) or they were deliberately ignoring my message (my personal hypothesis but with no substantial evidence). This is harder to show as it doesn’t say the account name when it says that the following page is not available, but if you click the link to their previous FurAffinity account, it will say that the page is unavailable and was deleted by the owner. I’ll leave both the link and the screenshot below. Link: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/ynesiarte/
