Monthly Positive Reviews: July 2016

If you've had a great commission experience, either as an artist or a customer, please comment here and spread the word. It doesn't have to be a full-on story, though you're welcome to type one! All we need are a few lines on why this person was so great to work with. You can also recommend companies, such as printers or fursuit-making teams, as long as it's relevant!

There are plenty of reasons to post someone here: perhaps they went above and beyond the call of duty to fix a problem, or were so prompt with communication and payment it was like having them right next to you, or were very professional and courteous every time you contacted them.

To help keep things organized, please follow this simple form:

1. Name of the person you recommend:
2. Link to person's website or art page:
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person:
4. Details
(Here's where you tell us why they are so awesome! What made the transaction go so well? Perhaps link to the art or suit you bought/sold if you feel like sharing. Please mark NSFW if the subject matter is adult!!):

If you have multiple people to recommend, please put them in separate comments to keep things organized.

Trades are just as welcome as paid transactions. But try not to post for friends (or yourself) who are looking to be commissioned. If customers are what they/you seek, teenycom, artsales or artcommissions is for them!

Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: June 29th and July 1st [two separate transactions].
Details: I bought two different bases which they had up for sale. Communication was prompt and the bases were provided to me quickly after payment. As an additional note, the bases have been very easy to use! Layers are well-organized and clean.

Name of the person you recommend: RainboneWyve
Link to person's website or art page: All communication took place on their FA: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/rainbonewyve/
Payment was made to their dA: http://thedarknessdash.deviantart.com/
Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: June 17th-June 24th for communication, art delivered June 30th.
Details: I saw their FA journal stating they were open for dA Point commissions. I inquired about slime icons they do in dA dimensions of 50x50 and whether they could do one that's 100x100. We worked out a price for the larger pixel size and payment was sent.

Art was delivered in a good amount of time and they did a great job of it!

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: A few weeks ago.

4. I suddenly remembering randomly commissioning them a few years back and decided to commission them again! Wonderful artist and turnabout is about 1-2 weeks. Options and styles are really nice (pretty sketches, cell-shaded, full color), only SFW options. Such as this very lovely zigzagoon picture, http://www.furaffinity.net/view/20386910/ !!

Would totally commission this person again and again! (also loves it if you happen to commission them!)

I would definitely recommend them!

2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/profile/grebij or http://www.furaffinity.net/user/fmirsokp
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: First sent an inquiry on June 25, paid on June 29, received finished piece on June 30 (after numerous sketches and WIPs along the way.)
4. Details: Quick turnaround, pleasant to work with, and the end result is simply stunning. Prices are criminally low, too, especially given the artist's strikingly high work ethic and self-imposed standards of quality. Be sure to tip big, because if anything, I worry the artist may be a bit tougher on themselves than they need to be just to make sure you get the best possible piece.

4. Details: The artist was very polite and professional, and even though this commission was part of an iron artist deal that was meant to be finished quickly they made sure to double check on important details for the character. All of the details were beautifully done and they captured my idea just perfectly.

She captured my idea beautifully, and she went above and beyond on the level of detail for this piece.

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: a little over a month total
4. Details: I ordered a reference sheet from them, and they certainly did finish it faster than I expected considering the queue they had lined up! After the reference sheet was done there were two mistakes I saw in the completed piece that I forgot to mention to her, but she still changed those mistakes free of charge! She's a sweetheart to work with and would recommend her!

Name of the person you recommend: Red-IzaK
Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/red-izak/ or http://red-izak.deviantart.com/
Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Mid-April to mid-June, 2016
Details: I bought one of the spots in one of Red's first YCH pieces, which was to be a full painted piece with two gryphon characters and a detailed background. Although my gryphon had only been depicted in anthro form previously, Red beautifully adapted her into a four-footed form to fit the piece, and provided two separate images to me for the final product, one with the characters as 'natural' gryphons to go with her gallery's themes, and one with my character wearing her signature helm and bracers at no extra charge. She stayed in communication really nicely, sent out notes and WIPs every week or two, and was open to the couple of revision requests I had along the way. I was blown away by the final pieces, and would definitely commission her again!

Finished products: http://sfw.furaffinity.net/full/20325068/ and https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/lrod3htifgr5dut/Playing%20tag_armor.jpg (both are SFW).

4. Details: They were just lovely to work with! I grabbed a spot for a family picture of my FlightRising dragons and they were kind enough to give me time to gather funds. Sadly I had only gathered enough for just two of the dragons and I didnt want to hold up the line. Their laptop then died and kindly asked if I could wait a bit longer, which I had no problem with! I was then able to gather enough funds to add one more dragon! They happily let me do the add on and the finished product I couldnt be happier with!
