Recently a friend of mine purchased a joint ych where artist A did the lines and artist B did the coloring and shading. My friend auto bought two images from this joint ych selection out of the four possible.

Artist A delievered the edits to both the lineworks quickly for approval and was very approachable.

Artist B only contacted her when the works were finished. She supplied artist B two flat colored images of the characters coloring and one turned out beautiful. The colors were correct as were the details she asked for. Unfortunately the second image looked nothing like the character that was supplied for it.

When she noted artist B stating that they missed marking details and the shading was heavily off and looked rushed they got angry saying she should have supplied a shaded reference.

Now in all the years ive commissioned artists i have never heard of this before. Most artists want a flat ref and is it wrong of her to be upset that the artist didnt even ask if she did indeed have one?

The colors are extemely off and the markings are off as well. It really looks like the artist tried to do shotty work and get away with it and is using this as a cop out. Since they seem to al2ays be posting collab work and things.

Would shading seriously throw off colors that much? Her character is a very light dry sand color and the work supplied looked like dijon mustard almost and tbh it didnt look like there was shading supplied at all.

I feel bad for her. Is it wrong for her to assume if an artist needed more information they would ask?
