Anybody seen Hannerd/FirstMateMcNoPants?

It's been well over a month since I completed her commission and haven't received full payment. She has the completed picture already. I have noted her several times both on dA (Hannerd) and y!gallery (FirstMateMcNoPants). I know she's read the notes on dA since they're no longer orange.

Not really a beware yet, just wondering if anybody has seen her or heard from her?

EDIT: I wasn't specific because I was just wondering where she was at. I always take half payment up front, no questions. I then finish the picture and send a watermarked copy of it. In this case, I accidentally sent her the fully complete version (since I upload both at the same time), but edited the URL to the watermarked copy about three days later when I caught what I'd done (this was on y!gallery where you can edit your notes).

Haven't heard of this person.

I'd advise that you don't send off the completed pic without complete payment in the future, though... saves a lot of trouble trying to get money after the fact.

If someone can't pay in full right away (or really doesn't want to, which is understandable) here's what I do: I ask for 50% upfront and 50% after I finish half the work. That way I always have money on hand before I even start anything.

Like, let's say you have to do a fully done, shaded pic. They pay half and you do sketch and inks. They then pay the other half and you flat color it, then shade it.

I do that, actually. Take half payment up front. I won't even start a picture until I do have that. Though I've edited my post so it's more specific.

i've done the art-first-pay-after and have been screwed out of big bucks. so i really agree with you on not doing it anymore. it's such a headache and gives people the opportunity to be dinks.

I guess I wasn't specific: I always, always take half payment up front, complete the picture and wait for the other half of the payment. I didn't go into specifics because I didn't think they were all that needed~~ But she has the watermarked finished copy of the picture.

Oops, sorry! Disregard my comment, then. X3

Just keep hounding every now and again... if they're a sensible person they'll pay up eventually (I hope).

Just looked at her DevART. She is there, or has been there, someone left her a message 2 days ago saying "thanks for the watch."

The last post I saw her publicly post was from April 15 which was two and a half weeks after I'd finished her commission.

:[ seems a bit dodgey to me.

It sounds indeed rather fishy. :(

You can always try posting a comment on her front page, not sounding accusing, but sounding like you think the notes might not have gone through and was "wondering if she received the pic" or something like that.

The fear of other people thinking she's scamming artists and the possibility to save face by simply looking like she didn't get the note might combine to make her reply and pay...
I find that generally giving them this sort of option as an excuse can work better than being confrontational right away. (Unless of course if the person goes on not paying, then you should definitely complain openly.)
Hopefully she somehow just forgot? ^^;

Did you ever manage to get a hold of them?

Nope, I'm afraid not. I've been trying to get in contact with them, but I've not heard back from her at all.
