To all artists on this here site, please observe the following blog I had copied from

Ordinarily, I don't feel the need to out the various cheats and scammers on dA or elsewhere, as they tend to root themselves out in a timely fashion.
This particular case, however, irks the hell out of me, as it affects an artist of whom I have recurring commissioning business with.
If you've been watching my page for a while, then you are familiar with Jason C'hng, who goes by Doghateburger (doghateburger.deviantart.com). He is responsible for the bulk majority of the character commissions done for my writing projects, of which include Shootingstar, Patrol Girl, Star Wars: the Destiny Era, etc. He is one of my go-to guys, as he is incredibly likeable and easy to work with. Above all, his quality is astounding!
He's recently had some trouble with an individual who not only neglected to fully pay him for services rendered upon prior agreement, but then had the audacity to ultimately refuse to pay the remainder of what he owed AND threatened to report him to PayPal in order to damage his reputation. And to top of it off... he is still using the artwork he refuses to pay for, hoping to fund his game through Patreon.
Here's his dA page: m0rv.deviantart.com/
Here's his Patreon: www.patreon.com/m0RV
And here is the transcript of the dispute in question: [link]
Warn your friends and your peers. Don't let people like this ruin commissioning for our artists.
