So i've recently found out that there are some artists out there who claim themselves as "professionals" yet all they do is basically taking people/customers money through art commissions and not finishing the work in months or even years, victims are mainly those who have already paid and patiently waited for that amount of time and still not receiving what they have paid for. Some artists who does this are artistically good, with relatively good amount of followers/fans, and some are popular here too (and maybe some other art sites, not just on DA)... It kinda sucks to think about it, the artist you admired for so long are the ones who does something like this. I feel sorry to those people who fell into this situation or if you've been in this situation before, i do hope you get your money back in the end. I mean, those money they've received didn't just grow from trees, people worked hard for it just to commission their fav artist(s), and yet knowing there are artists like this out there, it's saddening.
And i happen to know one, such a shame.
There are far better and decent artists out there who deserve the money unlike some... careful guys, if you're planning to commission!
