November's Positive Reviews Post!

I hope all of you had a fantabulously frightening Halloween. If not - Wal*Mart has a great fire sale on candy right now.

Turkey Day for those of us in the US is approaching quickly, which means after that? Christmas! If you want to get a jump on it with some great holiday art - this post will work out great for you to find the best artists to do your holiday commissions!

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!

And note, we love hearing about the GOOD commissioners too. This is, the good post after all!

Happy commenting!

Name: D6016

Site: D6016's FA

Approximate Time Period: November 1st, 2011

Details: I've been meaning to post one about Dee for a while now, considering Boyfriend and I have gotten a lot of art from him in the last year. x3 Communication has never been a problem, and his turnaround time is incredibly fast-- Usually within a day or so to see a sketch. The only time I've ever had a long wait time from him was when he was dealing with some IRL problems at the same time, which was no problem. :3 Yesterday he finished a quick freebie for me as well as a sketch for my boyfriend and I (Warning: Really NSFW!). I've always been a really big fan of his art style-- He's a really talented artist and a really fast worker. His commissions are cheap, too! I definitely recommend him to everyone. :D

Approx Time Period: Sept 18th, Aug 20th, even further back times

Details: Majalo is someone I highly reccomend for commissions. Not only is she very quick at completions, but she'll work with you until she gets your commission perfect. I've constantly gone back to her time and time again for art over the year from sketches to custom character designs. She'll even livestream commissions to make double sure she is doing everything correct just for the buyer.

A tiny bit off topic, but for those recommending...
Would anyone know artists doing Christmas/Holiday commissions that can do anime style art? Me and my fiance' have characters based of Keroro Gunso (You can see mine in my icon as to what they resemble). If someone could suggest an artist who is doing Holiday art I'd really appreciate it :3 I'd love to have a christmas drawing of our characters. :3

Name: GettinFuzzy (aka poprockgrey and kithkyubi)

Link:
Company FA
Poprockgrey
KithKyubi

Approx Time: March 2011

Details: I had ordered a custom fullsuit that was heavily padded of my pigeon character, Alar. Poprock and I have gone back and forth countless times on discussing every little detail. She was making sure and double sure with me throughout the suit process to get EVERY detail perfect for my liking. We even passed many ideas back and forth and on ways to make it efficient for me to wear and still comfortable. I highly suggest gettinfuzzy as a suit maker and would surely commission her again.

Name: VellaCRaptor
Links: http://vellacraptor.deviantart.com/ and http://www.furaffinity.net/user/vellacraptor/
Approximate time period: First one took about a month, the second a couple weeks, so not very long at all!
Details: I commissioned her both times through teenycom and both times have come out absolutely gorgeous! I hope I can commission her again when I get some disposable income. She's worth it! I highly recommend her!

Seconding! I commissioned her about two months ago through TeenyCom as well and received a sketch to approve within days, with the finished piece shortly after. Great prices and a wonderful end result.

Acidrica
1. Name of the person/company you recommend. Acidrica on FA/ darmit here on LJ

2. Link to their website or art page. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/acidrica

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with them. Oct 19, 2011.

4. Details: I saw this posted to TeenyCom, and decided to take her up on it. Halloween was coming up, and I wanted at least one creepy icon/picture since I had a little extra cash at the time.

Turn around was less than a day. I went to sleep and woke up with a WIP in my inbox, and then a very short time later, I had the finished image.

http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6700714/ (Barbie-doll nudity, creepy monsterzombieunicorn, the icon I'm using is cropped from it)

I have been just amazed. <3

Kinas/Kinasaur
1.kinas
2.Her dA
3.09/23 - ongoing
4.I wanted three avatars of a couple OCs of mine, and she draws cutesy like a pro. We settled for 10 bucks a piece, and she began to work them out. First one is the one I have as an avatar, came on 10/09; second one came on 10/26. The third one hasn't come yet but I'm pretty positive it'll go smoothly like the rest. If you check her dA you'll see she's in hiatus, but she has noted me that she's still working on my icon so it's all okay.

kinas is very nice and great with communication. She keeps her commission progress list on a journal on dA and answers to notes within hours (probably she checks her notes daily or something like that); she's also very kind and generally pleasant to deal with and her pictures are really pretty. I am not sure if I can link to the two finished avatars of hers cause she hasn't posted them yet and I don't feel comfortable uploading her work on my Photob. without permission, however you can see her work here in the comment box and down my avatars' list here on lj.

Re: Kinas/Kinasaur
Seconding! I commissioned her for an art card a while ago, and everything went wonderfully. The art was amazing, communication was prompt, and the packing was great. :D

Re: Icarus
Seconding this, the guy is amazing. Very fast work, incredible quality.

This is still one of my favourites (Not a commission, but a gift they surprised me with one day that really helped cheer me up): http://not-fun.deviantart.com/art/GELF-meteor-ride-193234877

3. 2/3 weeks ago
4. I commissioned them for 2 icons. I wanted one to be halloween themed and the other mountain themed.
Both came out awesome and the icons took only about a week to complete once I paid. Dogbreath is very polite and a pleasure to work with.

These are the icons I got;
