July Positive Reviews!

We've had a few big conventions lately. Hope everyone who went had a great time!

Any good commission experiences? Artists who got the picture done when they said they would, or captured your idea just right? Commissioners who gave great refs and had a fantastic attitude when they picked up their art?

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 even recommend 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!!)

If you have multiple people to recommend, please put them in separate comments so everyone has their own spotlight.

1. Name of the person/company you recommend. Kitzel
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kitzel
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with them. - One day.
4. Details: Kitzel (and her significant other Kerilus) placed the order on Friday at Anthrocon. I finished it and had it for her to pick up the next day. They had very clear references on their FA accounts. Kitzel presented me with a tip after she received their badges.

WORK FOR HER. <3 She's great and absolutely sweet. ( So is Kerilus, but I'm sticking to Kitzel because she's the one I wrote the receipt for and received money from.)

3. Turn around was about two weeks, as stated when I inquired about the commission.
4. Saw artist's banner on FA and jumped in for a commission, artist was super nice, and kept up all the deadlines, and did a wonderful job on the art, I'd recommend them highly.

3. Won an auction June 7th for a pair of Iron Artist sketches, and received the art on about 10th over email.
4. Loved both, and the turn around was above and beyond what I was expecting.

3. Still working with but about 3 weeks
4. I commissioned her for a single, two character picture. While she is still working on the original picture (should be done in the next few days), she has AMAZING communication, has inked the original sketch idea she had as well as a little doodle she did ALONG with working on the original piece. She is a total sweety and is an absolute pleasure to work with!

Thirding Van! I've only done trades with her thus far, but her style is so unique and her color choices are amazing. She is such a sweetheart IRL too c:

3. About three weeks ago.
4. The transaction was super smooth and quick. She handled my request perfectly. The commission was shipped in a timely manner and packaged better than any piece of art I've ever received.

May 10th, 2011 to June 1st, 2011

He was wonderfull to work with and such a sweetheart. He worked with me very closely, as he was making my Feetpaws. He also gave me a free upgrade to the larger wolf feet and that was very nice of him to do so.

Here is a link to the finished feet.

3. About a month ago.
4. I contacted her to buy a couple My Little Pony drawings of my characters and a friend's character and she was wonderful to work with; very friendly and approachable! At the time she was doing a buy-three-get-one-free deal but I simply didn't have another pony character at the time. She was still very kind to offer me the free character and make sure I was satisfied. I really felt that she was happy to draw these for me! I highly recommend her not just for MLP type work, but for her other lovely drawings because she's very sweet , considerate, and professional. I'd commission her again if I could spend the money!

The pieces she did for me: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5867213/

3. It's been a long time!
4. Asyd has been a close friend of mine for a very long time, but has always been prompt on her end of a bargain. She gets her work done in a timely manner and is a wonderfully detailed artist. She really communicates well and keeps her commissioners up to date if a hitch comes up. She specializes in dragons and just about all things scaley, though she doesn't put herself in a box. I would recommend her time and time again to anyone who fancies her style.

Sadly all of my pictures were a personal exchange and are not located in her galleries.

Re: Sweettalk
Seconding. I haven't commissioned her personally (yet) but I know several close friends who have and they've been nothing short of pleased.

3. less than a month
4. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6005519/ her hats are well done and id highly recommend someone commission her. they look amazing and charges next to nothing for her hats, which i think she should price her hats much higher for their level of quality.

3. about a month ago possibly more recent
4. The hat i commissioned is AMAZING! i did not expect it to be nearly as awesome as it is! she put a really soft fur in the ears which was a great touch and an awesome surprise! The hat is very comfortable and i had worn another one made by her previously. her hats are extremely well made and just look great! http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6009417

3. A few days ago.
4. She posted a journal to do sketch commissions. I wanted one, so I filled out her form. You can see my comment here as a rough time frame when she responded to me.
The finished product is here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6031808

As you can see, she finished it lightning fast, and it looks fabulous. I highly recommend her.

3. 2 weeks ago, also in previous years.
4. I recently commissioned a £10 sketch from her. She's super friendly, professional, and currently quite affordable. She was fairly prompt, met my vague ideas well! It was excellently packaged and sent to me quick.
I've also bought originals and prints from her, and they've always been excellent transactions. New sketch here: http://moodymand.deviantart.com/art/Risen-213145188

3. June 14th, and it was finished June 29th.
4. I commissioned this person for a "name-your-own-price" commission. Told her I could pay her $35 and she replied that would get me a realistic icon. Did so, and I didn't wait long for it.

It came out beautifully:

I watched her stream this briefly before she had to stop from technical difficulties, and she created a realism sketch in less than 10 mins and was already drawing the strands of hair. She made it look so easy! O.O

Definitely commission this person, she is really nice to talk to and she puts a lot of effort into her art, even if it's just an icon. The amount of detail she uses is near that of photorealism! You will totally be satisfied! :D

Commissioned a flat color image from this person and in under 24 hours received a wip while she was working on the finishing touches. Very fast very efficient. I understand this artist has been in trouble in the past but she is really cleaning up. I would certainly recommend to anyone out there.
