Honestly. Any post I see about people who never received paid commissions scares me senseless. It makes me feel like I need to work faster on orders so I don’t upset anyone and worries me that with each supposed scammer that’s just more and more people that will never commission artists ever again.

Honestly as a person who commissions a lot, I can pretty much wait months as long as the artist

  1.  Communicates
  2.  Seems like they’re putting forth a good faith effort. 

While I was having the issues w/ burdwow I was waiting for another commission that was taking even longer, but I knew that the person had Shit Going Down IRL so I was like ‘w/e I can wait, its just pixels.’ Meanwhile, I emailed them and they didn’t reply for like a month which was a big warning flag.
