Tri-Optimum reminds you that there are only one-hundred-sixty-three shopping days until Christmas. Just 1 extra work cycle twice a week will give you the spending money you need to make this holiday a very special one.

3. Commissioned ~July 15th, received art July 20th

I commissioned brindledcashew for a long overdue (i've had the character for years!) ref sheet of my personal character Jello. I noted her about a quote, saying I was willing to pay above what her price list said for all the details I wanted. She totally went the extra mile and didn't charge must more than the list price. She worked very quickly and the finished product was absolutely perfect!

3. Commissioned ~July something, received July 15th.

I commissioned Veetanitu a bit before she was publicly open for commissions.
She showed me the sketch during the process to make sure everything was well done.
She was very professional in our conversations, fast but with good quality in the end.
I love the finished job, she did it exactly as I wanted it to be done.

3. I've commissioned them four times, but the most recent was in...July?

I bought a Heather Mason charm from them. I've bought from them before, but I am just so impressed with the quality. I mean the personality shows through! I feel like it could get up and walk. I've commissioned things before, but never felt the personality shine like with this one. Just amazing <3

3. July 29th, received: July 30th
4. Luso was offering cheap $2.00 commissions one day and I decided to get one! I requested my character be draw sitting in a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy since it was a cute idea and Luso happily agreed and drew it the next day! He was super fast and nice to talk to! He does super cheap commissions often so his prices are really affordable!

3. commissioned her on July 23 and got the pic on 4 days later
4. Falvie has some fantastic artwork and some brilliant use of textures and colour choices for her drawings. She's very cool to work with, and I've been very patient with her throughout. Here's this awesome pic I've commissioned:

3. July 23rd, finished July 28th
4. This person was offering $10 glowing icon commissions and I really liked how they looked so I decided to get one. They looked so freaking cool! They were nice to talk to and easy to understand since English wasn't their native language, and they showed me WIPs and even did a slight edit when requested.

3. June 15, done on June 16
4. she was offering some sketch commissions, so I decided to buy one. She finished it very fast and it came out absolutely terrific! And to top it off, she has an affinity for jester (like I do) :)


if she's offering commissions again, I'll be more than happy to do business with her again

3. Twice I commissioned this person. Cannot recall the first time but the most recent time is around mid July. First commission was finished back in December 29th, 2010 and the second time was July 20th.
4. Very great style. Communication was a bit delayed at times, but nothing too bad. He managed to deliver the goods both times I commissioned him.

The first time I commissioned him was for a "Take On Me" inspired icon and the second time was for a heraldic design watermark thing over on TeenyCom.


Heraldic Design:

Definitely recommend this guy! :)

3. July 15th. Commission finished July 18th. Received in the mail sometime later that week.
4. I commissioned Mary for a custom Certified! species tag on July 15th. I was so excited to commission her for this. I was wanting one so badly and I was so happy to be her first Certified dachshund for her custom batches. :3

I told her I wanted one badly and if she would be willing to wait if I saved up the funds for the tag. She was very understanding and even let me buy it for $20 instead of $25 since I had inquired to her about one before she even started selling custom tags publicly so I was super grateful for that.

She finished it in no time, sent me the badge file, a high res file of my character only, and an icon file. That was so freaking nice of her to do that! <3

Not done. She asked for my mailing address and I gave it to her and she shipped out my tag the next day.

Once I got it in the mail, I was surprised to see that not only was there a tag, but ANOTHER COPY as well, and they both were laminated and had clips! AND, and there is another and, she included the original paper sketch as well!

I was so speechless and happy that I got so many nice things from her. That was a great deal. She is probably one of the best artists I have ever done business with to be honest. She was kind, polite, professional, and included so many great things for only $20!

3. Commissioned end of June I believe, finished in July
4. NSFW http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6152100
We wanted something gentle, nothing violent or hardcore and she captured that mood perfectly. She also took great care in making sure the pose was to our liking. She was great about keeping us updated about her process. Really nice artist and great to work with :)

2. Personal Art page at http://quequinoxart.com/ (My commission is currently displayed at the bottom of this page)
Facebook page/commission list at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Quequinox-Art/211337422224954
DeviantArt page at http://scenceable.deviantart.com/
3. Commissioned her in April 2011, commission completed and shipped in July.
4. Janine was a dream to work with! She e-mailed me with sketches and photos of commission progress every step of the way, was very open to any suggestions I made, and went out of her way to make sure I was informed and pleased with the commission. She likes to work on a bunch of commissions at once, but is steadily finishing some while she starts others, so there is always a sense of process and progress. And I was very delighted with the completed results. Exceptional packaging for the shipping from Cananda to the US, and her pricing in my opinion is more than fair given the amount of materials and time she puts into each piece.

Here is another photo she took of my commission http://quequinoxart.com/uploads/2/9/1/5/2915211/5406814_orig.jpg

Can't recommend her enough if you love equines, unicorns, or related fantasy creatures!
