How long is too long to wait for paid art?
Story time:
For those that saw my poll, thank you for the input.  I was a little paranoid as to whether what had transpired was "normal" or not. As you may have guessed, I recently had a situation with regard to art I've paid for, and a lengthy delay in progress. 
TLDR: after 5 months without even a sketch, my friend and I (it was a dual commission) cancelled for a refund (which we got).
Despite the fumble of the situation, I respect this artist greatly and want nothing more than for them to succeed in their endeavors, so I won't name them.
But I have some clear criticisms I've learned that can aid both the artist and the customer:
1). If you, the artist have a 20+ backlog of commissions, while tackling school or a busy work schedule, etc, as many of us are (we are only human), know your limit and know when to say "I'm sorry but I'm currently booked". 
2). If the artist is well aware of this fact, yet still wants to "lock-in" the business of a customer..

Viwrastupr Charity Commissions OpenCheck the details right here

Thank you for any and all signal boosts! Bid updates can be found on my tumblr, not here.
Comms. Two of Them.Utilizing this super cool auction system, we're gonna help Viw and kick some serious cancer ass for comics artist Jenn Blake at the same time. You need deets? We got those:
Don't mind the goal. It was weak. Know what's not weak? These pony commission slots. Minimal background is in effect, but the whole nine yards on a SFW character or two is up for grabs. We're starting at a healthy 60$ and running at $20 increments from there.
1. $60 - WingsMcCallister  (Starting with this one)
Signal boosts are most appreciated as well.
Just send an ask on Tumblr, a note via DA or a PM on Twitter.
I will do my absolute best to keep up here, but I hope I have a hard time doing so.
I can't be there for the monster-stream going down tomorrow on Picarto, but I surely can pretend. So, here we go. It's been a very long time, but two comms are going live.
Right here.
Right now.
Right on.
Loss of things, brightness of friends. Charity.Oof. Where to start? To begin chronologically I had a great time at EFNW, for the most part. There were friends, food, and fans. After the con I packed up everything in my car, which was quite full due to having everything I own in it. I'm moving to the Seattle area, so as you can imagine the car was stuffed. I locked the car and went to bed for the night. When I came out in the morning my car, along with most of my worldly possessions, was gone. The gated parking, hotel security, the locks on the car, the stickshift, none of this prevented a thief from driving away with my life. I'm sure it looked like a great haul to them. I'd've liked to have seen their face when they opened up the boxes and saw a bunch of pony stuff.
The police and the hotel have been kind but it has been made very clear to me that the odds of anything returning to me after this much time has passed are very low.
99% of the things of sentimental value that I owned are gone forever. There aren't words here to descri

In short, :iconviwrastupr: needs help to restore some degree of basic needed possessions. He's lost everything to someone who will not escape the inevitable punishment awaiting them unless they change to become absolved. :iconajhmmplz: Hopefully the criminal will be caught, but in the meantime, please help spread the word! :eager:

For those who may not know, :iconviwrastupr: generously participated in my Bathing Chryssie contest:
The Grove of Chrysalis by viwrastupr

And here's his latest work:
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic by viwrastupr

And yes, I'll be answering notes as soon when I can, probably all of them today, (after sleeping ^^;).

Side rant: It's these kind of thing that make people like me all the more paranoid. :paranoid: I mean, what does it take? Should one need to remove their battery and disconnect their fuel lines as an extra precaution? Or secure their vehicle with a classic 9kV NST @ 30ma with no GFI rigged with one side on the steering wheel and another on spikes in the seat, activated by an open door?
... It takes 7ma to kill, so maybe that's literally overkill. ^^' Let me tell you a single 30ma jolt is not fun. :/

Are you searching for truth?

My about page:

I do take commissions. :) Pony, anthro, or whatever, (though my next focus will probably be further developing my anthro pattern).
*If you are interested in an OC, know upfront that prices are typically 20-50% more due to development and varies by complexity.*

Notes about my plushies:
-Current List
-Pricing and Commission Details
-Mares are ~13.5" (~34.3 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-Fillies are ~11" (~28 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-I draft all my own patterns with Photoshop/paper towels and make embroidery files with SophieSew.
-I don’t share my patterns or embroidery files with anyone, but I do have tutorials for SophieSew and offer advice when I can, but try to figure things out on your own if you’re really interested. Bear in mind that no one told me how to do this, but the information was available. :)
-I do plan to distribute my patterns and embroidery files in the indefinite future.
-My plushies are made with minky fabric. Accessories may be either minky or ultra cuddle.
-Stuffed medium-firm
-I typically make two passes of hand sewing for manes and tails and three for non-swiveling heads for better durability. I have had experience with things coming undone on some pony plushies I’ve bought. It also happened to my earlier Bon Bon right before I shipped her, at which point I declared “that is unacceptable!” :stare: So I try to prevent that. :)
-Smoke free home!

And here’s some old-school DA information that I just left here:
Current Residence: The Republic of Texas (I can dream can't I?)
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock, Big Band and Swing, Celtic, Soundtracks
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: One that takes a USB drive and has a line out. (A modified a Zone Electronics Portable Mini Speaker)
Shell of choice: An 80s 4U server case, not that I'm using that though, there aren't enough mounts for drives
Skin of choice: Windows Classic (Customized)
Favourite cartoon character: If I had to choose: 1 female, too many choices. 1 male, Odd Della Robbia (who is straight BTW)
Personal Quote: Don't just look at the shiny side of a dirty coin.


Current status: Just about done painting my shop, (the first coat, second coat will probably come months later). Half of the porch ceiling and some minor detail work remains! :eager: Took a slight break during the weekend, but I also have a cold now too. :saddummy: Will be answering notes soon. Now is time for rest. ^^
Got set back a week due to circumstances beyond my control. Fixing a shower faucet now that's technically been pending for several months. So that's my status update! :icontwilightderp2plz: No LED Luna progress as of yet, but my first step will be programming for the LEDs. (I have at least purchased the LEDs though. :) ) There's a few other projects I'll be sharing as well. :D
Only about 68 hours until my Kickstarter project is successfully unfunded, (or unsuccessfully funded). ^^’… Nevertheless, I intend to fulfill rewards for current pledges as much as backer participation allows. The documentation is pretty much complete and can be found at After this, as already stated, I’ll try returning to Patreon for a second, much more efficient LED Luna, along with some other electronic and plush tidbits. :)
About two weeks left for the #Protean8x2 #Arduino optically isolated FET power control, 16-channels & RS485!…

Afterward, I hope to engage in an much easier to make LED Luna and will be sharing the process as a tutorial on Patreon#0! :D

YES I DO! :rage:
I actually recently made a list of "things I need to finish that I started or else I'll be one of those people who start things and don't finish!" Apple Blooms continuation of Chrysalis' story is indeed is on that list. :iconajhmmplz: I realize that sounds like a likely excuse :iconlikelystorybroplz:, but I've got one thing completely finished, three that are well on their way, one that I'm just going to wrap up as is, and two that I haven't technically started on. There's 8 things on the list. But now I'm just babbling. ^^; That I know you're still waiting will motivate me that much more! :excited: (Thank you for still being around man! :eager: Sorry I haven't been delivering well at all. ^^')

That KickStarter video was great!

There needs to be a GIF of the incandescent matrix in action.

Do it for me. And a few others (like :iconwheelgenius:, :iconfromequestria2la:, and :icondjgames:).

Or if you want me to make the GIF, that would be great!
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017  Professional General Artist
Well, given my result, I beg to differ. It could use some improvements, but since my campaign wasn't successful, it looks like I'll have the chance. :O
And yes, more GIFs, but I can definitely start with that. :D (I've seen some really inefficient GIFs on Kickstarter several MB large. ^^;)
AlbinoFluttershy Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2017
I've got a GIF prepared. I'll probably send it via email...
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2017  Professional General Artist
