May Day Postive Reviews Post

Happy May Day!

So let's start the month with praising those who have gone beyond the call and are dreams to work with.

Who springs to mind when you want to commission an artist?

Who's name in your inbox gives you a warm fuzzy feeling because you know that this is going to be one of the good experience with a commissioner?

Who are your go-to people for all your artists needs?

We want to know.

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.

If you have more than one recommendation (which is MORE than fine to do) please give each person a separate entry so that each artists or commissioner can be showcased. If you want to add to the love for an artist or commissioner who is being touted feel free to do so by commenting on the comment about the person.

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!!)

1. Nanuka
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/nanuka/
3. Quite a few times over the past year and I hoping to continue
4. Nanuka has always been professional and an awesome artist to work with. She's quick with communication and is always available for contact when I have questions. Her art is amazing quality and her turn-out rate is very reasonable. And, she's got a great knack for bringing my characters to life through her style.

Off and on for about a year.

Kobraa is very efficent and detail oriented in his work. He charges very low for most of his works and keeps up great communications. His anatomy is killer and he's trying his hardest to diligently improve as an artist in general, and I believe his works show this. I would post links but these are commissions that I requested in private.

2.http://www.furaffinity.net/user/ashi and http://www.furaffinity.net/user/pawprintstars
3.ive been commissioning her for a couple years now, so no real timeframe.
4. I've been a huge fan of Ashi and she's a great artist to work with. Fast and reliable and if she eve does get a little slow, she keeps you in the loop. She's always ready to answer questions, doesn't get annoyed or ignore you.

Her work always looks just how you wanted it, sometimes even better! I do recommend giving her artists freedom, I've always gotten the best work that way.
A few commissions I've gotten from her:
May. 2nd, 2011 01:59 am (UTC)
1. Marcusstratus
2. http://marcusstratus.deviantart.com/
3. Recently for a second time within the past couple weeks, and first time last year.
4. Fair prices (and willing to work within a budget), extremely durable results, and good in communication. Haven't been disappointed yet!

So far I consider them a go-to for custom steampunk apparel or like stuff.

So far this is what I've gotten from them:

1. LimeCustard
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/limecustard/
3. Roughly 4/25/11 to 4/29/11
4. I commissioned LimeCustard for a colored sketch of my fursona. After giving her refs she asked for some additional anatomical details, due to my fursona being transgendered. I went into some anatomical detail and she was very accommodating. She worked extremely hard, produced extremely quickly, and was amazingly pleasant to deal with. I'm looking forward to getting more stuff from her in the future. x3

1. TrashedBat
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/trashedbat/
3. Late December, Mid-April 2011
4. I commissioned Trashbat in December for a bug eyed and recently in April for a watercolor sketch and ATC of an old character of mine. I'm currently in the process of revamping the character, so I only had a few refs and a gist of the character in a descript. Trashedbat nailed the character and his attitude perfectly. Pic in question http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5626981

1. Slug
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/slug
3. Spring/Summer 2010
4. I commissioned Slug for a RPG sprite icon, unfortunately her list happened to be full at the time. When Slug finished her current commissions, she took the time to note me ask if I was still interested in an icon (of course I was). I adore the icon (currently I do not have a link to it). She was very professional, I have a unique icon, and I was floored that she contacted me when she was open again for icons. She definately takes her clients into consideration, and I'll be commissioning her agian.

1. Arito
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/arito
3. Quite often over the last year or less.
4. He is a great guy and super patient. As well he brings new ideas and challenges my way often. He always seems to like what I draw for him and enjoy when I do get to work with him. Plus his main character has an amazing color combo that I love working with.

1. Rosa
2. http://adoredolt.deviantart.com/
3. She has been getting stuff from me for the past 4-5 years now.
4. Great friends and artist, she always seems to point me in the right direction if something is wrong. Very patient and sweet, always really laid back about what is going on. I always look forward to working with her.

1. Nyth
2. http://aethanyc.deviantart.com/
3. 2-3 or more times in the past year.
4. Ridiculously patient and no matter what I do for her she seems to love it. Super sweet and an absolute joy to work with. I look forward to working with her in the future more.

1. Fayin
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/fayin
3. 1-2 pieces in the last month or so.
4. Quickly becoming a favorite customer. Really sweet and a lot of fun to talk to during and after the commission process. Has had great ideas every single time I've worked with her as well as adorable characters. I really look forward to future business with her.

Some amazing people I've worked with most have been in the last year or two.

1. Kashmere
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kashmere
3. Several pieces between 2009 and today
4. Kashmere is the nicest artist I've ever worked with. She does incredible traditional work and usually has the finished piece uploaded for you within a week or two. She is always kind or polite and does her best to capture the vision you have in mind. Youll gasp when you receive the original in the mail because the scan never truly does her art justice. She always keeps the commissioner updated on how thier piece is coming along and always always replies to notes in a timely manner. If you want an amazing piece of traditional art, she is definitely the artistto go to!

1. Polymorphicgirl

2. http://polymorphicgirl.deviantart.com/

3. Around January or something

4. Well, I'm actually friends with her so communication was pretty prompt and smooth, but she's very professional and doesn't ask payment until she delivers the sketch. Once she gives the sketch and you give her the ok, she begins working on the inking and coloring; however, she won't obviously send you the finished piece until she gets her money, which I believe is pretty fair. I asked her two commissions, six characters of mine for characters sheets, no background or anything, and in about one month and a half she had delivered both of them, inked and colored. This is the finished product, the six kids at the bottom of the image. I am commissioning her again because from experience I know she will take a reasonable amount of time, will keep me up to date with the status of my commissions, and will produce a quality drawing for an affordable price.
