TOPIC | Finally Gave Up

Welp, it was probably about time. 9 months ago someone commissioned me to make a custom accent. I spent ages trying to get it just right and tweaking every little bit they asked me to. When it was finally done they said they'd get me the gems by the end of the week. Two weeks later and no word from em. I sent them a message asking about it but got completely ignored. (They're still active and stuff, even now rip) Since they apparently don't want it, I've finally decided to print it off anyways, which I was a bit hesitant about in case they did message me and since it's for a rather unpopular breed, but I put in way too much work for it to go to waste!! (Even though it is rather old at this point //shot)

In any case, I'm just glad to have finally done something with it

@Shanai Oh man, like I said, it's pretty old so it looks a bit wonky, but here it is! [img]http://orig01.deviantart.net/7044/f/2016/242/b/3/silver_spires_za_by_timeblitz-dafw3fq.png[/img] It's a bit hard to see since it uses a lot of silver which blends in with the greyscale dragon rip

Oh I can imagine, that it looks really on a darkish/whitish rb :o like borealis lights on the wings. Srsly, even if its 'old', I think its a great work and some rb lover out there would pretty much love it :3 atleast, I would... If I had an rb :/
Still sad the customer did not pay you, cuz it looks like a ton of work (also if the customer himself demanded changes... pretty rude not to answer. Or atleast have the courage to tell you, that she did not have the curency to pay ._.)

... and that is why you should ask for payment up front! I am sorry this happened to you and hope someone buys the accent from you for good money!

[/quote] I don't know for others, but as a commissionner, I got scammed by someone who requested payment upfront. Never again.

I'm deeply sorry to see this happened to you, especially after you put in a great deal of work. =( It's not bad-looking at all, so at the very least, I hope you'll be able to get something out of it.

I'm also pretty strict about payments and customer support. Like there's a limit to the number of times I will edit the commission, and if an order's more expensive, I make sure I get the full payment first. (Customer gets the commission immediately after I accept their CR.)

I've definitely been a lot more cautious since this
