Positive Feedback Post: March Madness!

Six days late. Please forgive me (I'm currently on con-prep crunch, @_@).

Speaking of cons... with Spring Break right around the corner, let Convention Season begin! Perhaps you're going to want a new badge or ten for your annual romps, or are looking to see what artists to flock to when they grace any convention's Artists Alley or Dealer's Den with their glorious presence.

Or you're just a local to the internet art scene and have some good news about artists (and customers!) either way.

Let'er rip! Review away~!

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.

Happy feedbacking A_Bnites!

1. RedVelvetBat
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/redvelvetbat/
3. mid-February
4. I commissioned him for a friend's birthday gift, asking if he'd be able to make a fairly tight deadline (around two weeks). He agreed and finished it only three days later. As well as being quick, he was extremely polite and very upbeat, and his work is consistently wonderful. I couldn't recommend him more.

1. dozmuffinxc of LJ (not sure if she has another gallery, I certainly haven't found one and I've looked around.)

2. http://dozmuffinxc.livejournal.com/

3. I worked with her from mid-December 2011 until early January 2012

4. I participated in a charity auction on LJ starting in December and offering one of my custom animal ornaments of whatever the winner wanted and she was the winner! She was a real sweetheart throughout the whole process giving me some slack when it came finals and my moving home for break, put up several journal posts about how excited she was about it, and even sent me a thank you card! :D For a little unknown artist like me, that was soooo wonderful. She's such a gracious commissioner, anyone would be lucky to work with her!!

1. Krowzi
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/krowzi
3. Commissioned August 28th
4. I commissioned Krowzi on August 28th for a pair of dolls. By the end of October, she had completed the dolls and shipped them. When they hadn't arrived by the end of January (she is in Canada and I am in the US so we thought maybe they got stuck in customs) she offered to remake the dolls for me and reship them for me as long as I covered the shipping costs. Even though this was neither party's fault that they got lost in the mail, she rectified the situation and provided me with two gorgeous dolls! Not only is her craftsmanship worth the money but she provides the customer service to go with it! Thanks Krowzi! <3

1. Reddyeno5

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/reddyeno5/

3. Commissioned on February 10th, image completed Feb. 15th, shipped 17th, arrived 21st.

4. Reddyeno5 was having a charcoal portrait sale at a massive discount, so I decided to get one. Communication was great and the portrait itself was finished very fast but doesn't look rushed at all:
I received the traditional copy within a short amount of time, and it had no damage or smudges whatsoever. I'm very happy with the finished product and I would definitely commission them again.

1. Katibara

2. http://furaffinity.net/user/Katibara

3. Commissioned on February 14th for a Valentine's Day sketch. Commissioned again on the end of February for a Lineart (To be colored).

4. I've been commissioning Katibara for small purchases here and there for over a year now, the last two this past February being the most recent. I find it very appealing that she works so fast with the references given and always does an amazing job with the characters. Lately, she's only been taking small commissions here and there via stream, so if you're looking for something quick and pretty for a really, really good price, try keeping an eye out for her stream commission advertisements.

She's very polite, and makes sure that what she's working on is satisfactory, even if it's something like a $3.00 sketch. I've seen her make several changes to a single sketch for someone else at their request without a fuss. She's a real peach to work with and her customer service skills are stellar.

My commissioned pieces from Kati:
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7479471 (Will be colored) - $10.00 for the line art, paid an extra $5.00 at my request to have it colored (she offered to color it for $2.00)

http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7404546 (Far right) $3.00

1. Isil
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/isil
3. Buying since January, 2011
4. I've commissioned Isil over 120 times in the past year; he is definitely the most reliable artist I know. I cannot think of enough good things to say about this artist; if you buy a piece from him, you definitely won't regret it. GO DO IT NOW!

1. Neko
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/strawberryneko
3. Past few months, have about a dozen things from her
4. A very reliable artist, with a great work ethic. Not afraid to talk to you if she's unsure about something. Also, she draws the cutest eyes:

Been really happy with everything I've got from her, and looking forward to more.

I second Miss Neko. I commissioned her for the second time last month and she was an absolute joy to work with. She provided an amazingly swift turn around, thoughtfully brought up details I hadn't even considered but proved to be an asset to character design, maintained very good communication/contact, and helped bring a new character to life for me. Her customer service skills are exemplary.

3. completed on March 5 via Livestream
4. I purchased a by-the-hour commission slot for 9.5 hours. She did such a fabulous work on the pic (from the great use of colours to the amount of detail on the fur, etc.)

Carn-Dearg: highly recommended!!!
1. Carn-Dearg
2. http://carn-dearg.deviantart.com/

3. Started Feb 21st, completed the 24th, only 3 stunning days later.
4. I had commissioned Carn for a very complex art doll of my character Iktomi (see icon for reference) and she completed him 3 days later in his full glory. Not only is she very fast, but is an absolute angel and a dear heart. Fabulous to work with, she double boxes her work. He just arrived today from the UK and he is magnificent!!!

3. Feb 17th, turn around was two or three days!
4. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7414640 (SFW Art)

I loved her energy. She was very excited about the commission, and far exceeded my expectations with the sketch. I would commission her again in a heartbeat.

1. WFA
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/wfa
3. We scheduled it on February 29, finished on same day.
4. I ordered a reference sheet with 2 full body shots (one clothed and unclothed) 2 head shots (one with hood on & one off) and weapons. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7496131

All I gotta say is, WFA is an amazing person to work with, and is extremely nice to know. She is very great to know and works very well with customers. I highly recommend her to commission and is my favorite artist on FurAffinity :)

1. Tomhoshino
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tomhoshino/
3. She opened commissions about a month ago (Feb 12th) and my partner and I both bought badges from her that same day.
4. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7432622 (SFW)
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7432637 (SFW)
I adore her stuff, and when she opened I was all too thrilled to get a badge from her before she filled up. She was very friendly and posted a lot of WIP pics on her Tumblr as well, which is here:
I'm not sure if she's still open for commissions, but regardless her art is some of my favorite on FA! Definitely check her out.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Zenia
2. Link to person's website or art page:http://www.furaffinity.net/user/zenia/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person:
I believe it was a couple of weeks ago, but my memory is addled by busy schedule right now, and I got a piece done as well last year.
4. Details (Here's where you tell us why they are so awesome! What made the transaction go so well?

Zenia is very quick, and goes through the commission step by step with you via email. She will make sure you are happy with every detail and is generally just a pleasure to work with. :) The turn around on my last piece was something like 3 days I think. She doesn't trade quality for speed either so no worries on that count. She did an excellent job on both pieces! On the Minerva commission I didn't give her too many details on the Byakhee mount, and it seems she went and looked up some more details on her own.

I can't recommend her enough, I know I'll be going back to her when I need some more art done.

For the curious, here are the two pieces I commissioned, though be forewarned she does have some properly flagged NSFW art in her profile so be careful when looking at work.
