It's Opposite Day on Artists_Beware!

Well, not exactly Opposite Day, since positive reviews have always been welcome here, but from here on out we are going to keep positive reviews in this monthly format. We will be doing this on or around the first of the month from now on. No separate positive review posts will be allowed from this point on. This being the first run, how we do this may change a little depending on how things go.

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.

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. (Please put this in the subject of your comment, also.)
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.

1. Name: OmegaSama

2. http://omegasama.deviantart.com/ or http://www.furaffinity.net/user/omegasama/

3. I've commissioned her for various pieces throughout the year. She's never taken more than a month to complete a piece.

4. Omega is prompt, easy to work with, and incredibly polite. Majority of the time with my commissions, she's worked purely on text based descriptions with very little in the way of visual references. She only made a mistake with a single commission, and made me a new piece with the correct pose without any hassle. I recommend her 100%!

The pieces I commissioned are as follows:

1. Name: Navidian

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/navidian/

3. My fiance and I have purchased a series of commissions from her throughout the year.

4. Navidian is polite, quick, and incredibly easy to work with. She offers multiple sketches for you to choose from, and keeps you informed on every step of your commission.

These are our commissions:

Re: Navidian
Yes, indeed. Separate comment for separate artist, you did it right! (And thanks for mentioning it; I edited my post to let everyone know to do the same.)

1. Name of the person you recommend. (Please put this in the subject of your comment, also.): Bladespark

2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.sparkcostumes.com/

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: i couldnt even tell you. ive done business with her numerous times and will continue to do so.

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!!):

what can i say? shes fantastic! she finished items in a very timely manner, works hard to make sure your product is exactly how you want it, ships quickly, items always arrive safely. shes pleasant and professional as well!

i was verrrrrry specific about how i wanted my thylacine dragon tail. i drew a basic concept sketch, showing the tail with a specific shape and curve as well as a certain number of stripes and said that there should be enough space between each stripe for me to place the spikes that i was hand making for my tail. the tail arrived quickly, unstuffed (as agreed upon) and the sewing was very well done and neat. i added the spikes, stuffed it and sewed it shut and was in shock....because it was PERFECT. the shape, size, details, everything. :D


ive also commissioned her for several bead sprites and done a few trades with her. shes an absolute pleasure to do business with. :)

4. For the high quality of work given, Nim-Nim delivered the art very fast! I got it within a few days of placing my order. A fantastic, friendly artist whom I would certainly do business with again.

1. Coffinberry
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/coffinberry/
3. December 2009 and June 2010
4. I have purchased commissions from Coffinberry on two separate occasions, and both times I have received my art within a very reasonable amount of time and with awesome quality. On top of this, she's very down-to-earth and you don't feel intimidated in the least when working with her.

Re: Kashmere
Seconding Kashmere, she did a badge for me a few years ago. She only had a picture of the suit head to go off and still did a perfect job.

Re: Marci McAdam
Seconding Marci! I have commissioned her on two occasions, and even when she was pretty busy, I could still very easily get in contact with her and ask where I was in the line. And um I know I am biased, but I think the two she did for me are some of the best I've seen from her. JUST SAYIN'. x3
There is a reason she's so popular! Just really quality work and very professional attitude.

1. Fredryk Phox!
2. It's a livejournal, actually.. Can't find him on FA. http://fredryk.livejournal.com/
3. Mid-December, 2009
4. I saw a LiveJournal post talking about him needing extra cash. So I commissioned him for 20-25 dollars or so. He got in touch with me on AIM about 10 minutes later, I gave him payment within 20 minutes of initial contact, and then watched him draw it out in OC with me offering live corrections and ideas over the next few hours. It's not perfect, but it still looks fantastic to me. http://d.facdn.net/art/krylancelo/1261285234.krylancelo_fredrykphox-krylancelo.jpg

1. Dizziness

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/gallery/dizziness/

3. January and then again in April, I received my pieces both within a week of commissioning them

4. I've commissioned Dizziness at an anime con before, and she was prompt, professsional, and amazingly sweet. After commissioning her at two Metrocons, I saw her work online and followed it, and purchased two sketches and a conbadge when she opened. (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3089251/ - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3089246/ - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3568997) All are amazingly done and up to her current standards. She was super easy to work with, and very nice! She gets her pieces done very quick! I got the originals in the mail and she had packed them very nicely, and I have them hanging in my room right now. :)

Toasted Jello
1. Toasted Jello

2. http://jelligator.deviantart.com/ - http://toastedjello.livejournal.com/profile

3. I commissioned her the 13th of Jun and got my image the 17th of June

4. I had seen these tail wag icons around and I thought they were adorable, and under recommendation of a friend, got one. She was quick, super chill to work with, and produced an amazing icon that I simply adore! She works mostly on TeenyCom I believe! The icon I am using is the finished product.

Re: Toasted Jello
I am seconding this! Plus these icons are super adorable. ;; She was very fast and friendly too.

1. Diogenes (@ deviantart)

2. http://diogenes.deviantart.com/

3. The first commission I got from him was in early? July 2009 and received July 21st, 2009... the second I got was in May, 2010 and received June 1st, 2010! (so he's fairly quick for me!)

4. Ahh, I have the great honor of saying he's a friend of mine and he's extremely nice. He's professional, he's willing to make changes, he'll show plenty of WIPs. He seems to really enjoy working on his commissions, too, so that's always a plus. I highly recommend him - he can do a ton of things. Humans, anthro, creatures, etc etc. He's not very well known, but he SHOULD be! Here are my commissions I got from him: http://diogenes.deviantart.com/art/Dae-Commission-130404889 and http://diogenes.deviantart.com/art/Nox-Commission-166105481

Re: Diogenes
Wow! I so had to watch them. Their work is stunning.

1. Kasia88 (@ deviantart)

2. http://kasia88.deviantart.com/

3. I've only gotten two bust sketches from her, but they're -fantastic-, as is all of her other art. She's not open atm, though, I don't believe. :C Commissioned them on June 18th and received them on June 19th lol.

4. OH MY GOODNESS I highly recommend looking at her gallery! She is amazing with creatures and humans/anthro and REALLY good with expressions in everything she draws. I adore her art very much. http://kasia88.deviantart.com/art/5-sketch-busts-more-167855236 - mine are in the last three - just not the very last one! ;D

He got it done actually within a few hours, really pleasant to work with and his prices are really low. I actually tipped him because I thought they where too low haha.
It was my first commission piece and he was really helpful through the whole process.
