Hello everyone, I'm looking for some input from both people who have ordered face-ups from artists and faceup artists. I couldn't find related threads: Basically, I sent for my first orders (2 heads) to a pro artist in China. (Heads sent Feb.9 -arrived in March but artist didn't notify me she received it until April, when I inquired). This person states she takes 4 - 8 weeks on a commission. I inquired her on week 10 if she was anywhere near done and if she needed more time, I won't bother her. She responded week 11 saying they were done. She would send pics later that week. I inquired this person in week 12 about seeing pics, no response. Week 13 she said she would send me pics (after I inquired) but no pics yet. My question is: to anyone here who has had experience ordering a faceup (and has done it before) or is an artist who gets work regularly: Is it too soon to inquire or expect anything from the artist if they did state it would take 4 - 8 weeks for a completed commission? I figured the max # of weeks X 2 heads would be 16 weeks tops. It hasn't been the complete 16 weeks yet; but do you think I'm being too pushy? Should I express that I'm a bit worried and losing confidence in her ability now or wait to the full 16 weeks (or maybe later than that). I really don't mind waiting for 4-5 months for a face-up I love, but if its done early, I would love to get it back ASAP. Any input would be great. Thank you in advance!
