So I thought I would let you all know that back in march of 2011 I had commissioned HinaUchi for a piece of art that I had originally planned to give to :iconcrazy-voodoo-lady: for her birthday. Which is in july.

Time went, july came and pasted, I never saw my art that i paid for. Now in late August I had to ask for a refund from HIna because I lost my camera that was my birthday present from my mom and I needed to replace it before my mom found out. For those of you that don't know my family be thankful. My mom can scare the crazy neighbor who has the gun.

Hina Had spent my money in the time and thus couldn't afford to give me my refund. instead she made a journal for me asking others to commission me. While helpfull not that helpfull >.>

I then waited a YEAR, with questions here and there about my art. before I finally got it and she put little effort into it.fav.me/d4ve8mp she even states herself that she does not like it. I spent $45 on art that even the artist thought that she could have done better on.

I was annoyed but I let it go. she was a friend to me and I was partially trying to help her out.

Next about a month later after finally receiving my art Hina announces that her old paypal is over drawn and she's taking commissions to fix it. I of course was like. "my friend needs help? and i can get art, Sure why not." So I commissioned her again because these she was doing almost immediately. She expressed concern over the fact that she had just finished on piece of art for me and didn't want to make art for me again so soon. But she still gave me her paypal and accepted my commission.

I told her not to worry about it because i was still figuring out what character I wanted her to draw for me. well during this time my cat passed away and I figured I could have her draw me my cat, so I could have a tribute to my deiced pet on my page. So in May I tell hina what I would like for her to draw for me.

Well it's just a few months shy of being one year and I had to ask her if she ever planed to draw my art or not. If not I would like a refund. she said she would refund me. I sent her my info, and professionally what should have been immediate issued, she did not. I gave her 48 hours before contacting her on her profile page about the issue and not having received my refund.

I was not going to wait months to a year for her to refund me $10. I realize that is not that significant of an emount but it is the principle of the matter.

How could I trust that she would have responded any other way than that? she had read my last note that had my info in it and never contacted me again before I posted on her profile?

Her reply to my comment on her profile And my reponses

"HinaUchi said the following:

no need for that snarky bitchy comment on my profile, thanks very much, how about you be mature and note me.

im sorry for getting back to you late, but im trying to get the money to refund you, i never denied i wouldnt, nor did i state it'd take years, that was fucking rude

hold your horses, dude, im sorry."

"forgetSanity said the following:

If you didn't have the money to begin with you should have told me that you didn't have it. Not state that you will refund me and then you don't.

How else am I to look at this than as you trying to avoid paying me when as I stated in the comment I gave you 48 hours to repay me After you stated that you would. I gave you the info that you needed and you read it, and never responded. It seemed like you where hoping that if you waited long enough that I would forget about it.

I have been mature about this. If I sent you a note it wasn't a garentee that you would respond, but by making a comment on your page, it garenteed that you would contact me. if nothing else for you to get bitch about me calling you out on being unprofessional.

I've been nice about this rena, but I'm not going to sit back and wait weeks/ months for you to refund me when you can't even get a commission done on time. It is Rude unprofessional and it's the Second time I've had to ask you about a refund.

My history with your business is NOT a very professional one on your side hina, so don't call me mature. there was nothing bitchy about my comment it was an honest and actually polite selection of words. I was not rude about what I had stated at all."

"HinaUchi said the following:

''I gave you the info that you needed and you read it, and never responded. It seemed like you where hoping that if you waited long enough that I would forget about it.''

Actually, incorrect! I had starred your note to keep track of your email to send you a refund whenever I could get the money [if you want proof of my empty paypal ill gladly show you.] I even had to take another commission [5$ chibi] so I could give you a refund. Let's not put words into my mouth or make stupid false accusations about me.

''I've been nice about this rena, but I'm not going to sit back and wait weeks/ months for you to refund me when you can't even get a commission done on time.''

Because 2 days is weeks and months, yes."

"forgetSanity said the following:

''I gave you the info that you needed and you read it, and never responded. It seemed like you where hoping that if you waited long enough that I would forget about it.''

Never once did I SAY anything about you saying you weren't going to pay me. I said it SEEMED as in it looked like.

"weeks/months"
I was stating that I would not let it go that far. I was also basing that info off of my previous experience with you. My commission before I commissioned you for this piece took almost a year as well, were have you proven to me once that it wont take that long for anything from you?

also you still have not given me a date for my refund, and you seem to be avoiding that and focusing on other things, when in fact this is about getting my refund.

Once again You said you would issue me a refund, I gave you the info waited 48 hours when you should have given me the refund immediately, unless other wise stated, which you did not state.

Plus you've stated
" I even had to take another commission [5$ chibi] so I could give you a refund. "
and I still have not received my refund.

~Sanity"

Finally She issues me my refund.

I told her "thank you have a good day."

Rena as the professional that she is replies with "whatever." then continues to block me.



HinaUchi is NOT a professional artist, nor does she take her art seriously OR her commissions seriously. You are not guaranteed your art in a reasonable time, if at all. She also spends the money before she has completed the art and thus does not have the ability to issue refunds properly as she should be able too.

She will, with no problem, Give you art that she does not like herself and expects you to be happy with that.

Yeah, she's still doing this sadly.
Has a whole blog dedicated to her about her scamming habits.
It's happening over on furaffinity as well. She's moved accounts quite a bit.

I'm sorry :hug: 

it is what it is. I still wish the best for her but I really don't think people should commission her until she learns better work ethics. admire her art but please learn from watching her mistakes and from her attitude that's all I ask.

I agree.

I've done some research on her, I must say I was a bit surprised!
I hope she shapes up soon and gets her carrier in tack.

I'm very sorry that has happened to you. UnU Tamako Kitashirakawa (Snuggy) [V1]  *pap*

What I'd like to know is what happened to her. She just..disappeared. I'm hearing horror stories about people commissioning her, and I'd like to see her art and judge for myself if it's good. Do you know what happened to her?

people do find out it's her, but if you call her out she'll remove your shouts and try to tell you that she's never scammed anyone.

she's ok FA, her collab account with her husband is brisbee and their other accounts can be located via their profile page on there.

personally her art isn't bad, she has some things she can work on, but who doesn't. It's more her work ethic that has people so much in a uproar about her. for me as I stated above my issues with her where that she gave me art and even put in the description that she didn't like it, as well as made me wait an entire year for my art, with out refunding me when I asked. that and I had commissioned her again just for her to make me wait almost a year again then say she would issue me a refund only for her friend to issue me the refund instead. 

I say watch her for her art, it's not bad. But really don't commission her. At least not unless it's during a stream or something when you know the art will be done right away.
