Has anyone heard from poisonpoptart?

I commissioned www.furaffinity.net/user/poisonpoptart or poisonpoptart.deviantart.com on February 22nd for 3 large-scale commissions totalling $113 US. Normally I wouldn't pay it all up front in one go and prefer to pay for each piece separately, but after receiving a commission prior to this in a timely and efficient manner I figured she was trustworthy. Shortly after the payment was made and cleared around March 4th, I waited a few weeks but didn't hear anything back from her, I found that she had msn messenger and contacted her on there. We had a friendly conversation, and apparently all her commissions were delayed because her computer died recently and that while she has another computer to use for msn messenger she doesn't have paint shop pro, tablet installed, etc. on it (sorry guys I don't have specific dates and chat logs because I didn't think I'd have to post here). I was understanding and sympathized, and she thanked me for not being angry like her other commissioners. I had another conversation with her which was reassuring shortly after that, but for the last two to three weeks she has disappeared. She's not answering my notes or emails, although according to her favorites she logged onto FA and favorited a picture a few days after I sent my last note, and although she logs onto msn I always find here 'away' and doesn't respond to my messages which she should receive when she gets back to the computer anyway.

Anyways I'm starting to get concerned, has anyone had contact with her recently? :(

I've never commissioned her but I've been watching her since back when she was on SheezyArt only - back in '04/'05. From what I've seen she tends to just disappear and reappear again really sporadically.

I waited almost a whole year to receive my commission. She opened up for spring break commissions last year and after waiting a year to leap at a chance for a commission spot from her I jumped on it. She seemed to be pumping out her commissions pretty quick, but then stopped and disappeared from the internet for a year as soon as she received my funds.

She made a reluctant return to FA earlier this year and wouldn't disclose why she left for so long, but promised to get my commission done. Sure enough she finally finished it for me sometime that month.

My advice to anyone considering this artist: Diana/Poison Poptart/Yume is an amazing artist with finished commissions that do not disappoint, but she has a long history of taking off for months at a time after opening up for commission. If you don't mind an artist taking your money and leaving the internet for unknown amounts of time, then by all means go for it!

I would like to apologize. The artist I'm speaking of is "yumpoptart".


I would like to create a new thread on this artist, but my issue has been resolved and the artist has disappeared once again.

I will edit the tag to reflect the name appropriately, thank you for letting me know!

"Poisonpoptart" should still remain the name of the tag for the original post. I was simply stating that I mistaken her for another artist.

Ah, I misunderstood, I apologize. I'll edit the tag again.

Poisonpoptart and Diana Montoya/Yume/YumPoptart are two totally different artists. This thread was very misleading O_o

It'll be 2 years since she told me she was drawing me a surprise gifty.
She posts mario/harvest moon giftart, proving that she has the time and that her computer is fine.. but I still havent heard or seen anything from her in regards of my gifty.
She updates on her FA too, but still doesnt give me word.

Hey, this artist has suddenly become active again. Posting art on FA, but no journal.
