Anyone seen RF?

Has anyone seen the artist
RF
RF
? I bought a commission from him several months ago and he stopped posting art on his IB about that time. He last contacted me in February saying I'll get a pre-sketch soon. In the last month I've noted and e-mailed him with no word back. Anyone seen him?

Update! Thanks to some help from JuiceM, I got in touch with him and got my pic! It's really awesome and I'll be posting it soon!

no sorry. I have something similar from sometime last fall or so with another artist.. I hope you'll get what you deserve other than me and some others :/

Yeah, hoping he's just busy and will get to it soon. Just the silence has me worried.

looks like he's busy as hell getting requests done too.
not fully sure though

So you've heard from him recently? Mostly, I want to know he's okay. also just asking for an update since there has been dead silence in his gallery. I don't mind artists taking time, I just poke if there's been no activity.

I haven't actually "heard" from him, but if you look at his latest journal (four months ago) it says he has 50+ things he had to work on.
SquikBat

Yeah, that doesn't help make me less concerned.

artist-beware time?
SquikBat

Well, I hope it doesn't come to that. Asking around has helped me get in touch with artists before.

Word around the grape vine is this, So take it with a grain of salt.

He's gone and taken a long unannounced break and doesn't plan to come back soon due to drama. That's what I've heard but nothing set in solid stone.
SquikBat

Yeah, that's not a good thing to do to customers at all.

SquikBat

Mm, not going to say that just yet. But with as many commissions as I buy, it would happen eventually.

this is why i don't pay in advance unless it's absolutely necessary and I feel i can trust somebody.

However I do wish you luck with this...there's still people who owe me art I will probably never see. <.<

I'm in this same position with someone else right now...I hate the uncertainty. I suppose worst case is that you can go to Paypal and have them get your money back. I'm debating doing it soon...

There is sadly a 45 day limit :/

Technically. But if you go in and pitch a fit, they'll still try and do it for you.
SquikBat

Yeah, it did say on their site to still report them. I'm giving him a few more days till I do something like that. I have e-mailed him again. I do like to give people the benefit of a doubt, but it has tried my patients.

It could be one of three things: he ragequit from some unknown drama, something major IRL came up, or he pulled a Besped and just ran off with customer's cash. And only one of those three is excusable.

If I could ever finish a drawing I'd do a gift one for you to help cover the cost of this - I may attempt that, but don't expect anything. :\/

IRL things can come up, and I understand. Just wish he'd get back to me or someone night know where else he posts so I can send a note there.
Azadeth

Indeed, there are no IRL issues I can think of in which he would be unable to respond to messages...apart from him being homeless or something. So that adds an element of negligence to the matter, no matter what the issue is.

Ouch, havent heard anything myself but I know the feeling. Im at 6 months with someone but asked for a refund just yesterday. XP

Oh. Actually, yeah, I have him on my AIM contacts. I got a hold of him after the same thing happened to me. Apparently he was totally overrun with commissions, finished mine, and forgot he hadn't sent it. If you want, I can send you a PM with his AIM address.
SquikBat
6 years, 2 months ago
That would be awesome. Or even poke him about mine, even!
JuiceM

I'll get right on it! It looks like he's afk right now, though. At least, I hope he is. 'Pparently he's been online for 24 days straight. Sort of a red flag, there...
JuiceM

Yeah, there ya go. I found him, and he's actually working on it now. How many brownie points did I get? :)
SquikBat
6 years, 2 months ago
If he actually IS working on it, quite a lot. Have you asked him to reply to any of my notes and e-mails?
JuiceM
6 years, 2 months ago
Oh, dang. I assumed he'd already talked to you about it. Anyway, yeah, I saw him working on it in a stream. Something with your most prominent FtM bein' all suggestive with Mr. Wheatley. He told me he'd contact you once he was done with all this 'stuff' which was supposedly to be completed by the end of the day. I'll check in again tomorrow if need be.
SquikBat

I've sent a few notes and e-mails over the course of a month and he's been ignoring them all. That's why this journal exists. I can only put so much faith in third hand info, no offense, just not seen movement from him at all and it's wearing on my patients :/

So he streams? Where's his stream usually? Also, does he have another site he posts to?
JuiceM

I'll send you the link via PM.
