Advice: ignored commission request

An artist on FA had made a journal stating that they would be closing commissions soon, so I sent them a FA note asking if any slots were still open. They said yes and asked me what I wanted for the commission. Unfortunately, their response came in the wee hours of the morning and I had to go away for the weekend, so I did not see their reply until 3 days later. I apologized for the lack of communication on my part and sent a response with the commission details. A full week passed, and I saw that my message had been read but not replied to. The artist says on their page to send another note if they haven't replied in a couple days, so I shot them a quick message just asking if they'd gotten my note with the commission info. That note, too, was read and not replied. It's been another 7 days, and in between then and now, the artist has opened a new account on a different site and been actively posting there as well as FA. I considered sending a third message (possibly on the new site) as I enjoy their work and really want to commission them, but I don't want to be pushy, and I am wondering if this is the artist's way of indirectly declining my commission. What are your thoughts?

Most likely sadly... Best to find another artist that will respond back to you. If only if only you had typed down something big, they would totally replied back at ya.

This once happen to me as well. An artist wanted a large commission pieces from her customers/commissioners and ignores my small commissions. When they're open for slots, i wanted those slots, didn't get said slots. They said it was full but after checking her twitter, 1hr after that, still open for commissions/slots available.

I tried asking again for those two slots when they're open for slots later that week or so. They had the nerve to tell me i'm rude for demanding those two slots. (two slots out of the three available)


I mean, just asking for slots and they don't like how you asked for those slots.

I've thinking about it and if only i happen to choose something else, like say, a much bigger commission piece, they would surely do it/consider it! but the small commissions i wanted was for gifts to people on tumblr.
