April's 2011 Positive Post

Spring is almost here unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere then you are welcoming Fall.

Either way we are at the seasonal change on the planet.

And what a good time to find people who have done a little more than usual to make our lives more pleasant. This is for both artists that you love and have been good to you as well as commissioners that when we see that e-mail that they want us to create something for them, we know we are in for a good time.

We ask that you give us a few lines of what made this such a great experience for you and why this person is so wonderful in your book. You can recommend say a fursuiting group or an artist enclave as well.

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:
Subject line: Name of person/company you recommend
1. Name of the person/company you recommend.
2. Link to their website or art page.
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with them.
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!!)

Seconding Meister Li!

Finals came up and I took a bit longer with his commission, but he was very understanding about it. Plus he offered to tip a few times which is always a huge compliment towards an artist! Working with him is always a pleasure.

1. Emilee Denich/Riptide on y!gallery.
2. http://remotely-lame.net/
3. Since 2008
4. She is not always available but is definitely a fine artist with a great attitude. She does not take more than she can handle and has always been able to produce wonderful art in a timely manner. I've never been disappointed.

Just a few of many commissioners I love to draw for that deserve recognition for their kindness :)

1. Name: Sera
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sera
3. A regular commission-ee since 2009 :)
4. Sera is always super clear with describing what she wants me to draw and is a pleasure to draw for. :) Incredibly kind and thoughtful. I look forward to taking her commissions.

1. Name: Fuzzypaws
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/fuzzypaws/
3. Has commissioned me both in person at a convention and a few times online since 2009
4. Shiro (Fuzzypaws) has always given me fun scenarios to draw for him, and has tipped me, which I am very grateful for. He was very kind about a perspective-based commission I didn't think I would do well with, and adjusted a commission idea slightly so I was still confident about doing it :)

1. Name: Arinmal
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/arinmal
3. Has commissioned me a few times since 2010
4. So polite and thankful, I am grateful to have had the pleasure of drawing for him. Very considerate and patient guy, wasn't impatient in the least when I had a bit of a delay getting his 8-character commission finished. Super nice guy :)

There are so, so many more people I want to mention - I don't think I've ever had a -bad- commission experience. I wish I could name each of them :) These are just a few people that came to mind. Thank you guys <3

1. Name: A-chan Creations
2. Link: http://chao-fangirl.deviantart.com/
3. Time Frame: I commissioned her back in October 2009, more or less, and received the plushies I've commissioned on February 15, 2011. However, the reason for the huge gap is explained below :)
4. Details: The plushies I've received (Klonoa, Guntz, Chipple, and Pyramid Head) were all made beautifully and personality. The seams were neat, the details were accurate, and they were the perfect size. I love them to bits! When commissioning her, I got a late with a few payments due to my job giving me less hours (this is the reason for the gap) but she was extremely patient and pushed my plushies to the end of her list to give me enough time to finish paying. She did not need to do this, but I cannot thank her enough for being patient and understanding about the payment troubles. Definitely recommended!

3. January 2011
4. She was so prompt and polite! I asked for changes to the original sketch, she did them quickly without any questions, and the finished product is literally one of my favorite commissions I've ever received. It's gorgeous and even better in person. The way it was shipped made it practically indestructible, very above and beyond on the packaging of the original. I also got a badge from her (its not uploaded to her page yet) and it was stunningly beautiful, and came ready-to-wear with clip and everything. She is so professional!
Here's the pic I commissioned! :D http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5185054/

Zyden
Zyden is a super artist and definitely deserves some recognition for having awesome work and being awesome to work with.

Zyden @ DA

Commissioned in early March.

The work is professional and frankly amazing in its depth and color and how it's all put together. I haven't seen anything quite as breath-taking as her eye-cons, for the price and with the level of professionalism that she puts into her work. A slightly larger version of my eye-con (and icon!) can be found here if you'd like a peek.

She's wonderful to work with and has a great manner as well. The commission was quick and painless and I'm still amazed at how gorgeous it turned out!

Synchra
Synchra
synchra, aka "synchra" on FA. n_n
Business was done this month, and previously~
I assume it's okay to mention this-- I purchased two of her adoptables and received the larger file for both within about 12-24 hours of payment (bought at separate times). She is really friendly and her quality of work is very professional. I have also had an art trade with her in the past (which I admittedly need to finish my half for, good lord I am slow) and I was more than impressed with the quality she brought me (see my current icon for this comment-- thats her work!). n.n I would totally recommend her-- she does a lot of concept work for characters, ref sheets, and icons. <3

p3nsive Pensive on FA.

I commissioned a couple of icons from Pensive on March 25th. They were done within a couple days and they're super cute! Pensive is definitely on my list of people I would commission again.

Icons are here and here.

1. Midori
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/midori8
3. Early this year.Recieved in time for my bowling meet on march 6th
4. I had a commision go wrong and Midori was willing to do a refurb on the head I commished from anouther maker. She agreed to $150 for the refurb but after takeing it apart she realized it was alot more work than expected. Atleast $300 worth of work but she wouldn't take a cent more. She was pleasent to work with,communication was great and she produced a super product for me. She gained a forever customer and a friend.
Heres the finished product and I couldn't love it more!

4. I couldn't resist Bonez's package set - I commissioned for my demon character and got a lovely grunge bust, WAM sketch, and an icon (currently in use on FA). Turn around was about a month, communications were timely and polite :)
