January's positive reviews post!

Happy new year! To kickstart 2012, I'd love for everyone to share all the excellent transactions you've had with awesome artists who may have gone that extra mile to make their service special, or clients who were great to work with.

To help keep things organized, please follow this simple form:

1. Name of the person you recommend:
2. Link to person's website or art page:
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person:
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 to keep things organized.

4. He was one of my first fursuit customers and he was a really sweet guy to work with. Prompt with communications and payment, incredibly patient and understanding when I had trouble finding the right kind of fur, the right size shoes, etc. I made this for him :3 http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6971704/

4. I've always adore their works. At first, I didn't have the chance to commission them as they only accept Alertpay, but when they announced that they're accepting payments through PayPal (due to Alertpay problems), I finally got the chance to commission them! They did a terrific job with my commission and are very pleasant to talk to

1. Helical
2. FA dA y!g
3. Three days ago.
4. I've commissioned helical several times in the past, and this is just one of many wonderful transactions. I can definitely say without a doubt that hel is a complete pleasure to work with. The piece I got was perfect, even though I didn't have a ref to go off of, only a description. Helical has a unique style that I just love. Unless illness or something like that gets in the way of things, turn-around is within a few days. I'm sure this will not be the last time I commission them.

3. About a month ago
4. The art is reasonably priced, with a reasonably fast turnaround, and with a rather unique style: http://kuakness.deviantart.com/art/Sailor-Kat-272509581 ; http://kuakness.deviantart.com/art/Puppy-love-253473870

1. Soulren
2. http://soulren.deviantart.com/
3. About a month or two ago, and right now
4. I commissioned a custom pony seen here: http://soulren.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4ga2qf
Soulren kept me updated the entire way through, sent me WIP shots of every step, and the pony was finished within a week or so. I've currently commissioned them for two more and they are sending me WIP photos and keeping me updated with the status the entire time.
They are overall very friendly and fantastic at what they do, and the communication is a dream.

4) I was hesitant to do a trade for one of my hats, because that hasn't really worked out before, but they really pulled through. She did this piece for the trade: http://www.furaffinity.net/full/6351366/ which was way more than I had expected, plus she got it done very quickly. She's a great artist and deserves way more attention than she gets!

1.) Pocketwolverine/Del
2.) www.furaffinity.net/user/pocketwolverine
3.) I've bought a few icons from her, and 1 full commission.
4.) Del's art is *amazing* (adorably cute and stylish) and she really does a good job of capturing the characters she draws. Turnaround time has always been pretty fast for me, and the full commission I bought I was given frequent updates and in-progress shots. I thoroughly recommend commissioning her; she's awesome!

Seconding Del forever! She did this wonderful sketch for me in livestream http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7141702

thirding her! She made three themed icons for me and they're terrific!

1.) Rikkitz
2.) www.furaffinity.net/user/rikkitz
3.) About two months ago - turnaround time on the drawing was about 3 weeks.
4.) Fast turnaround, very friendly, and fair prices. And the picture I got from her was *awesome* :D Very emotive, smooth, and interesting! Plus, it's real-media and she was quick to send out the original to me. It's even more beautiful in person then it is in the scan. Highly recommended!

4. I contacted Bix707 about a commission of 7 cats, due to be a Christmas present. She worked quickly and produced a beautiful image that I was able to easily print and frame. She was a joy to work with, always prompt with e-mails and updates. I would love to work with her again!

1. Fetalstar
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/fetalstar/
3. I've done business with her multiple times. The time between initial contact and completed image was never more than a month no matter how swamped she was.
4. She has always been friendly, polite, and patient with my requests. Every note I ever sent was sent a speedy and satisfying reply. She sent me sketches and kept in contact. She completed my commissions quickly and so far has drawn exactly what I asked for down to the smallest detail. She's not even that expensive!
My first thought when it comes to great artists to work with is Fetalstar.

1. Orangebluez
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/orangebluez
3. March 2011-November 2011
4. Orangebluez contacted me regarding a sale I was having to raise money for Spring Break. He ordered two hi-res detailed images from me. I don't remember the exact amount, but something like $70 was the total. He paid $200 knowing I needed that much for the trip. He didn't ask for anything beyond the two images for that much.
I worked hard to make these two images the most elaborate and detailed I'd ever done, but it took me a LONG time to finish them both. In that time, Orangebluez was patient and never nagged me about them, was polite, helpful during any edits, made no demands of me, and really made the effort to work with me through our business, even though it took so long. Definitely a good customer :]
