Artist: Snowhawk
1. Snowhawk
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/snowhawk/
3. I've bought several pixel ponies from her recently, but her turn around time is usually less than a week.
4. The price, for once thing, is really out of this world for what you get. The turn-around is quick. She offers a join.me where you can watch her work on your artwork.


I think I've bought 6 from her, so far. Every transaction is smooth, and pretty much awesome. :) Highly recommend!

1. Painteddog
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/painteddog/
3. 2 months ago, + Current commission awaiting mailing.
4. PD opened for 'pudgie charms' and I jumped in, received excellent communication from step one, and photos of the final necklace within the same week. Sculpt was above and beyond what I expected, very thrilled with it. Photo: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6635931/

Second commission is for a two character Globe style ornament, once again, communication is toptier, friendly and was shown WIP shots along the way. I can't wait to get this one in the mail soon.

Anyone looking for 3D art, give her a look, prices are very fair, and you can't beat the turnaround/communication.

Seconding PaintedDog, I too got a pudgie charm from her and communication and progress was fantastic, as is the outcome!

1. Sigil
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sigil/
3. Stream sketch, 11th or 12th Nov, completed that evening!
4. I caught one of Sigil's streams and commissioned her for some rudey-nudey art. Communication was obviously very prompt and I love the final piece! She's a star!

3. Pic streamed and completed on 11/29/11.
4. He's just starting out with commissions, but his professionalism, approachability, and quality of work are wonderful, especially for someone new to the business. He streamed my picture live, asking for feedback several times, describing the music he was playing for inspiration, and providing a generally friendly and receptive atmosphere to his viewers. The base price for his first commissions is unbelievable, as well (I couldn't bring myself to not give him more).

Full color, full body Livestream pic.

Disidi / Gasmask
1. Disidi / Gasmask
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/gasmask
3. late September 2011 to mid November 2011
4. Disidi has gorgeous art and a great sense of customer service. Though I consider her a friend, she treated me with the same professionalism / businesslike air as any other customer (a boon IMO!). She's also extremely honest about wait times as well as being very open about progress and providing a more than fair amount of WIPs. Not to mention the final product is astounding.

Full color, full body one character.

1. Lingrimm
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/lingrimm/
3. late October to late November
4. Lingrimm provide amazing communication (especially considering a language barrier!) and product. They consistently produce lovely color and characterization and are extremely approachable and prompt in their responses.

Full color, two character bust.

DripRat (NSFW)

1. Name of the person/company you recommend.


2. Link to their website or art page.

http://www.furaffinity.net/user/driprat, http://pholph.com, his webcomic JACK which is very NSFW.

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with them.

Began a month ago, concluded 9 days ago.

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!!)

DripRat was doing 20 dollar commissions just to make ends meet and I had a little bit of disposable income so I ordered an image of my interpretation of Anubis.
He accepted and I was added to his queue. I got to watch him work on it on Livestream and he was in constant communication.
While waiting in his queue my laptop power cord died so I emailed him to let him know I might not be around and my payment might be late. Luckily the stars aligned and I got a new cord before the commission was complete.

My commission: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6896398

Artist: Mosa
1. Mosa
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mosa
3. Around September/October
4. Commissioned Mosa for an inked picture of one of my characters. She's always been fast and easy to work with, and really knows how to bring my ideas to life! Highly recommend!

1. Tanginello

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tanginello/

3. 6 months ago

4. I asked for this picture. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5836008/ and it was completed within a week or two after payment, which I thought was a very good price for the amount of detail and multiple characters. She was very polite in the e-mail that were exchanged.

1. Novelteeth (Ciderfox on LJ)
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/novelteeth/
3. Two weeks ago
4. This was the first thing I ever commissioned with USD and I'm more than happy with the result. I commissioned a bug-eye icon (see my icon) and despite the offbeat request (including the tarantula) she did a wonderful job and made it super cute! Very fast and friendly, would for sure recommend her.
