Seeking Advice - Raffle Prize

About two years ago I entered a raffle for a new years themed chibi ych and ended up winning.

I gave the artist my ref sheet and waited patiently. New Year's came and went so I contacted the artist to request that since New Year's was over they not include the New Year hat on the ych to let it be a generic party ych instead. They agreed and I went back to waiting patiently. A few months later I messaged them to ask about the prize as politely as I could and was told that all raffle prizes are marked as low priority since paid things are more important and that they are trying to work on emptying their queue.

I understood this and figured that as long as they had me written down somewhere I would eventually get my chibi. I have not heard from them since. They seem to regularly take commissions and have even continued doing raffles without ever seeming to complete mine.

I didn't want to seem pushy over a free raffle prize so I hadn't bothered them again, maybe that was a mistake. But it's now coming up on 2 years and I am wondering should I just give up on ever getting the prize. I admit I feel a little salty and hurt over it. I know it was free art but it was still something promised and then never delivered.

If you haven't contacted them at all, and they are completing other raffles then perhaps it would be best to refresh their memory. If then they still don't complete it, while it's good form to actually finish raffles you aren't out anything. It would be best to let it go.
