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.

It can't hurt to refresh their memory and continue to do so until you are ready to give up. The worst they are likely to do is continue to ignore you.

No matter how it turns out I would mark them as someone not to commission because of their lack of work ethic and morals.
