Lost Contact: Zombienerd

This is BY NO MEANS a warning, I just haven't heard from this person in a long time, and I think they're a part of this community so I thought I'd try here.

Zombienerd commissioned me over a year ago for a $10 ref sheet from Teenycom. I admit, I took an absurdly long time, between me being slow and having a 6 month or so dry spell with art, and ended up redoing it once or twice. In the meantime, I know I corresponded with said commissioner on FA, double checking they still wanted the commission even though it was months later. When I finally finished said commission a couple months ago, I noted them on FA (and I'm sure it's the same person, I think I had noted them before and gotten a response) but I haven't gotten a response saying they got it. It says in my outbox that it was at least read though. I also have zombienerd's AIM, but I haven't seen them on at all since I posted the commission, and that's the only means of contact I have other than FA.

It's only 10 bucks, and it was really my fault that I took so long to finish it, so the money isn't a big deal at all. I mostly just want to make sure that they received the ref and are happy with it.

Note showing that it's the same person (In the previous note, I asked if it was the same zombienerd as it was on LJ): http://i52.tinypic.com/rk54bt.png

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: It wasn't clear in the entry, but the commission has not been paid for yet. I wouldn't really be concerned otherwise, even if it just is 10 bucks.

(no subject)

Hey everyone. At the risk of sounding quite silly and this being utterly unimportant, I have a question for you all:

A while back, I was contacted to paint someone a commission of their character. I'm not usually open for commissions but my general workload was down at the moment and I was in need of money, so I accepted.

Since I haven't really done commissions much in the past and not being quite confident on myself, I told them they could pay after I was done with it.

A week or so after having accepted the deed, my real life started getting hectic and I ended up putting the commission on hold for the time being. It was just recently that I e-mailed them asking if they were still interested (after all, no monies were exchanged, the painting was only a sketch, and it'd be fine if they wanted me to drop it). They told me to continue with it and I did.

I went through each stage of the painting with their approval and ended up presenting them the finished artwork a while ago.

Problem is they haven't replied at ALL since I sent the finished picture. :( I'm fairly sure they're online and about, just not acknowledging the fact that I finished it. I did try to contact them again, but don't want to be a pain in the ass.
