Need reccommendation

x-posted to artistrecommend
I have absolutely horrid luck with artists. Over 2/3 of artists I commission either run off with my money or take way longer than stated and don't respond to my emails. The folks who I /want/ to commission never respond to my serious inquiries or once I've sent the description they vanish altogether, even for something simple. It's really starting to piss me off as it is a recurring theme.

Right now I'm looking for artists who draw expressive (whether it be cartoony or semi-realistic) humans well (not in anime style!). Can anyone recommend anyone that will actually respond to emails and not ditch me?

I'm starting to think there's a "Don't let Thornwolf commission you" list out there. I'm really not hard to work with as generally if I commission someone its based on their style and their imagination and I try to commission something that highlights what they would draw normally, for example if someone draws canines really well I'm not going to ask them to draw a cat, or if they really like drawing expressions I'd ask for something expressive.

Good customer service really shouldn't be a rare thing but unfortunately it seems to be that way.

I have no hesitation to drawing humans, and am always looking for practice. :)

I do a lot of human character design. Some people say my style is anime-influenced. Most say it isn't. I'm capable of several styles - make sure to check out my "other" gallery as well as the illustration gallery.


I'm about to update with a new web site, so I haven't posted any new art for a while, but I can provide more samples at your request.

i'll vouch for oolong up there, he's always posting new work without taking off on folks

hibbary does nice human character designs and has a killer range of expressions / great service, too.

I would suggest Ailah (Therese Larsson). She's always been good to me for any art I've asked for. tessilago @ gmail.com is the email.

Well there's me: http://subversive-imaginati.storm-artists.net/ I'm studying how to realistically paint human right now. I already draw them in no less than three different styles including comic.

If you're looking for a tip top realism artist though I reccommend Kallen, she's dealing with power outages right now so you might want to wait a bit for her to be regularly around but she's an incredible artist.

Oh and I also recommend Manshi http://manshi.deviantart.com/ she did a wonderful sketch for me a while back.

paiseley does some hilarious shit for LJ icons and such, and she's fairly active commission-wise.

I do decent work, and I take commissions also: http://mdetector5.deviantart.com/journal/11104187/

Should you have a page on DA, I would like to be contacted there via notes. But working out details via email and IM is good also.

By the way, DO you have a page on DA? If so, I'll watch you there.

Alright. I'll watch you there. I visited that page just a while ago, and you do have nice stuff. We should talk sometime.

thank you :3
Oct. 2nd, 2007 10:28 pm (UTC)

She's super awesome :)

klar.deviantart.com is one of my favorites. I think she might be closed for commissions at the moment, but you should definitely give ehr a look for when she starts again.
