Has any one else had dealings with a D. A. Cantero?

This is the last contact I had with this guy back in Oct 1st, 2008. His email no longer works, & I paid in full for a color sketch, no background.

Still getting the pencils down. I got your payment a while ago; sorry if my email letting you know didn't arrive.

That's the last I heard from him. His emails just bounce for me now, & I can't seem to locate him anywhere online. I keep getting 404 errors for the old link he had out.

What should I do in a siduation such as this?

Is this the same guy? http://dacantero.deviantart.com/

They've posted on DA on the 6th.

He is notoriously long winded on commissions, and long periods of silence are normal. I have an outstanding commission with him as well, but I don't expect to see it any time soon.

I think the one before took about a year and a half to get the finished line art.

That said, he charged $20 for some unbelievably talented work (2 characters, with full background). So I shrug and pay another $20 and forget it for a year or two.

I IM with someone who is closer to him than me, I'll mention you are looking for him and see if he can ring him or something. I don't know if my friend has any solid contact details for DAQ, but I'll let you know if I get a lead.

He is on Deviantart too. You can try contacting him there.

I've done a trade with DA before, good guy, great work. Almost as slow as I am sometimes! LOL Don't stress too much, just be patient. His stuff is well worth the wait.

I'm told his new email is: tashunkauitco@gmail.com

Send him a polite reminder.
