Little change of pace...

I've been seeing alot of posts lately about troubles with artists.. But I've got some cash to spare, and I'd like to know.. who have you had _good_ experiences with? I'd love to commission somebody :3

Thanks! I hope that this is okay for this community :3 I know there was a good artists community but it was taken down?

Actually it makes me sad that it's not that active.. jsut goes to show how much people perfer the negetive over the possive *sigh* I'd contribute more myself, but I hardly commission people.

If you like 3d art, I'd recommend out Fireeyes, she does some awesome work, and for her smaller badges/charms she gets the work done FAST. I've commissioned her a few times, and been pleased every time.

I haven't commissioned many furry artists for 2d work, mostly been in trades, so it's hard to judge if any of those artists would hold up with commissioned work.

And like other people said, FireEyes is excellent.

I've had good experiences with both Thornwolf and Fireeyes. They both get things done quickly without sacrificing quality. The latter was actually apologetic that the charm I commissioned at a con would be "late." I don't personally consider an extra two days to be late; I just hope she didn't pay more to ship the charm than I paid for the commission.

Maybe consider getting a commission from jazaaboo? She is an AWESOME and unique artist, and could *really* use the money right now. :}

on devart HellcorpCEO, Aureath, and Whitedeath (link to her personal site marsupilarmy on her devart page i think) are all top quality, communicative, and pleasant to work with.

i also really like Huskie666's business practices, but i think she may be swamped right now. not sure.

O.o

Just wondering... Ursula doesn't do commission work anymore, and I thought that gotbunny didn't either?

Huskie is great, she's always promt and responsive http://huskie666.deviantart.com/. So is Melo http://666mel666.deviantart.com/ and Dreamrunner http://www.furaffinity.net/user/dreamrunnerwolf/ I've always had great experiences with these people. But im not sure when they are taking commissions.

I think Melo's got some auctions up if nothing else. I keep seeing her journals saying she wants to take commissions and stuff (I think on the commissions part) 'cause she needs the money. Not being able to get a job due to facial piercings. (Which is so ridiculous. :/ I'm waiting until I get my next job for a piercing to make sure it's not a problem. People judge too much on outward appearances.)

http://www.karzrave.deviantart.com is really good, and always gets commissions done quickly.

http://www.alblage.deviantart.com has an AWESOME style and is quite good with timing as well.

...hmmm...I don't commission people myself, much.

From my personal experiences. Some of these experiences were a while ago, so their turnaround time, etc. might have changed since then. Heck, some of them might not even be taking commissions anymore. I don't know. But still, based on my experiences....

Recommend for any circumstances, no drawbacks whatsoever, just all-around awesome, commission them now:

Recommend for everything except speed; good artwork/friendliness/prices, but they do take forever, but still highly recommended if you're patient:

I've only commissioned two people so far, and I can't really recommend one of them for various reasons (not bad enough to post on this comm, though). I can heartily recommend the other, though. :)

I bought the custom-made pouch in that link from that artist. She was very sweet and patient and does great work! I'm hoping to commission her for another character pouch when I can throw the money together. She does do paper artwork, as well, of course.

I'm not well known enough to be recommended here, but if you decide you like my style (there's a link to my DA in my LJ userinfo), feel free to send me an email! :) It's nice to see these kinds of posts once in a while, and it's nice to get a good commissioner too, my personal experiences with buyers of my art have been more negative than positive so far, unfortunately.

Most of all, of course, I hope you have fun with it! I love commissioning people, it's a blast, I just wish I had more money to do so!

She does such wonderful digital work and icons, plus she's my roomie and always gets the work done.
