Monthly Positive Reviews - January

Welcome to 2017!

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!

1. Name of the person you recommend: Rai-che
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/rai-che/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Initial contact November 18, finished December 1
4. Details Rai-che was fantastic to work with! Great communication and I am so happy with the finished piece, for which I gave a character and basic theme/environment and left the rest up to them. The high-resolution file was huuuuuge and I was able to make a 12x18"-sized print to put up on my wall! Would definitely recommend :D

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Nov. 30th - Dec 14, 2016
4. Details: They had a YCH with the started for Pokemon Sun and Moon, and I decided to treat myself to the last one open since it had my favourite starter. Artist was willing to work with me regardless of my lacking a proper ref sheet (I provided as many pictures as possible and said that if they needed more, then I would be more than happy to include more). Artist was a pleasure to work with!! Here is the completed image: http://www.furaffinity.net/full/21998317/

1. Name of the person you recommend: Bagelhero-works
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://bagelhero-works.deviantart.com / http://www.tucsonbagley.com
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Nov 26 - Jan 4th (first icon was completed on Nov 28, second on Dec 17th, requested additon finished on Jan 4th)
4. Details: Very friendly and easy to work with artist. They were upfront in informing me that my second icon would take longer due to complexity of the character and gave frequent updates. Was very open and willing to make an addition to the second icon after it was completed. Was very surprised by how detailed the icons are for being so inexpensive and am really excited to commission the artist in the future for bigger projects.

1. Name of the person you recommend: athdaraxen
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/~athdaraxen
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: A few days ago
4. Details: I saw on twitter that athdaraxen was taking some badge commissions (that you could have picked up at FWA). I commissioned them for a mini badge because I really liked their style. They were prompt in answering my emails and were quick to finish my badge! The cool thing is I can pick it up at FWA this year so I can save on shipping too!

1. Name of the person you recommend: SkyGiratina00
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://skygiratina00.deviantart.com/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: December 31st - January 25th
4. Details: I commissioned this artist for a digital reference picture of my original character (two full-body designs, one male and one female since the character is genderfluid).
The artist was extremely nice to work with, and very understanding, especially since I didn't have any good references of the character. They also got it done within a very reasonable amount of time, especially given how long their waiting list was when I commissioned them!
They designed very elaborate, beautiful outfits for this character, which I think is seriously impressive given how little they had to go off of! The character looks exactly as I imagined them, the color scheme is perfect, and I absolutely adore how it turned out. I highly recommend this artist! They're also very friendly and pleasant to talk to. :D
Here's my amazing commission, which I still have not stopped gushing over:

CleanPlague
Name of the person you recommend: CleanPlague
Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/cleanplague/
Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: January 13th to 26th, 2017
Details: I came across CleanPlague's art on the front page earlier this month and really liked their fat character/weight gain pictures. I've wanted to get a weight gaining image sequence done for years, TBH, but never really got around to it or had the funds. I sent a note asking about their prices and got a quick response that it would be $10 per image in the sequence. I said I'd come back at a later time when I had the funds.

Within a week, I sent another note outlining the three-image piece I wanted done. CleanPlague said they could do it and said they'd do a quick sketch WIP and send a PayPal invoice if/when I was satisfied with the WIP.

A few days later, I had the sketches in my inbox and I approved them, got the invoice, and paid.

Over the next week or so, I got frequent updates from the artist with what step they were working on now. They kept apologizing for being slow, but I kept assuring them 1) they weren't slow, and 2) I was totally fine with the pace they were working at. Even so, it was very nice to have frequent communication from them :)

Today, I was given the final images--both separately and in a single, long panel--and they came out perfectly! Very, very happy with their art and in dealing with them as an artist. Will definitely go back in the future for more art from them.
