1. Loadedpistol
2. Her Furaffinity Page
3. Paid for commission on June 6th, received final piece on June 19th.
4. I've admired this artist's work for a long time, so I was super pleased when she said "yes" to working on a new reference sheet for me. She was very prompt, and made sure that I saw WIPs throughout the entire process. She made any changes that I wanted at the sketch stage, and even included a small chibi of my character on the sheet free of charge. What a lovely and unexpected surprise!

For those interested, you can view my completed commission here.

1. PirateHearts

3. June 2012
4. PirateHearts is AMAZING, professional, and polite. I paid for a commission on June 24th. The finished image was in my inbox THE NEXT DAY. She asked if I required any changes- I pointed out a small detail to fix, and the revised version was in my inbox the next day. Yeah, the entire commission took only two days. :D That's almost unheard of, ESPECIALLY for the price and quality offered. I am just suuuuuper impressed. Here is what she made me: http://piratehearts.deviantart.com/gallery/10474683#/d551xyn
She is an amazing toon artist, great at style mimicry too if that's your thing (I asked for mine in Disney style, and she nailed it!)
I will definitely be coming to her again in the future. :)

1. Wolfy-Lupus
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/wolfy-lupus/
3. Month of June
4. I made a journal asking if anyone would be interested in commissioning me so that I could buy a few records on vinyl; Wolfy had commissioned me previously, and asked if I could do an icon for him. Unfortunately, I was struck with a bit of art block and had a lot of trouble drawing for most of the month. He is an incredibly patient person, and an absolutely lovely commissioner. He didn't mind at all that it'd taken me longer than expected to finish his icon, and commissioned me for another one after I'd finished the first.

1. mellosmile
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mellosmile
3. paid for on June 11th 2012 and received the completed image a few hours later!
4. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8168770/ (Gore Warning!)

Mellosmile was very nice to work with. I purchased clean sketch commission for $18 USD, and the turnaround was extremely quick! I gave them a simple idea and my character sheet and let them have artistic freedom over the image (I'm very loose when it comes to my commissions). Overall I'm very happy and would likely buy a commission from mellosmile in the future should they open up.

1. taintedsweetmeats
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/taintedsweetmeats
3. Payed for June 18th 2012, finished that same day. :>
4. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8215442/

I purchased an icon from taintedsweetmeats because I adore their colorful painting style! Their slots go like hotcakes so I was quick to hop on the opportunity. The price was very reasonable ($15.75 USD) and turnaround was very fast. I only gave them my refsheet and let them have total reign over the expression and background colors, so I'm unsure if these sorts of commissions are 'artistic liberty only' or not. I am very, very happy with the finished product and would gladly buy again.

1. Treats
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/treats
3. Uhmm..At least a month ago. I can't recall the exact date!
4. I'll start with how lucky I was able to grab one of her cheaper slots before she filled up! http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8303442/ :3 Though she had some PC problems, that didn't stop her from finishing my commission in a good amount of time.

1. Vekke
2. http://vekke.deviantart.com/ and
3. Approached on Jun 7th, paid her Jun 10th and received a sketch the same day. Full pic FIN on Jun 22nd
4. Well this was my first ever commission that I paid for and it went really well, very fast, professional and awesome to deal with. It had to be simplish as I'm getting it printed as a wallscroll type thing, but I also wanted some of the folk art patterns she did.
Vekke delivered amazingle.
Totally going to come back one day and pay her to do a portrait of my (currently nonexistant) dog

Hello AB mods,
I'm a mod over at Artist Recommend and I was wondering if we had permission to post a link to this thread when it goes up each month. So we would make a mod post posting the link to this thread and then add each artist mentioned to our tag lists.

We're not trying to bogart your content at all, please don't think that; but you guys have a much larger memberbase and get many more posts in this thread when it goes up than we ever do in a month. This way at least we can add the artists mentioned here to our tags with a link to these posts.
(if we could get your permission rather than linking just the entire thread I would love to be able to posts the artists's name and and then a link directly to the reply regarding them, but again we are not trying to step on AB's toes at all).

We'd really appreciate it over at AR, though, and it would be great to have the artists praised here to show up in our tags as good businessfolk.

I don't mind working with another community to spread the word about good artists and customers. Linking to our content is just fine. Its the copying and pasting (without linking to the original content) that we had issues with from copycat communities. And adding them to your tags is great, since we don't tag positive reviews with names over here.

1. Calicokitea (artist)
2. Calicokitea on FurAffinity, Calicokitea on Inkbunny
3. June
4. Calico is a treat to work with! She did a piece for Kit Keiko and me, and gave us two or three initial sketches to select from. Her turn-around time on notes was very, very quick, and from the time we settled on the initial sketch to seeing the final inked and coloured work was maybe a week or two? Her style really lends itself to erotica and has a whimsical, playful quality. Here's the finished piece - definitely NSFW! http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8227155

1. Plaguedog
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/plaguedog/
3. picture finished in June
4. I'd actually commissioned Plaguedog 5 years ago, but due to one of FA's security lapses, I completely nuked my notes. PD went on hiatus, and since I'd not only foolishly nixed any correspondence but not sank a significant amount of money into the commission, I wrote it off as a loss.

However, this year, I received a note from PD out of the blue, politely and professionally apologizing for her sudden disappearance and asking for updated info (she offered a refund, as well, but I told her I'd be more than happy with just art). I was extremely impressed that she returned to settle such old debts, and the piece I received was worth far more than the original price. Clearing such an old queue, that could've easily been lost to the ether, speaks volumes of her character, IMO.

She's also incredibly sweet and very talented individual. I'd gladly work with her again!

1. RedDyeNo5

3. June
4. Red has offered Livestream sketches multiple times through May and June, and I grabbed pieces from two of them. Her streams are always pleasant and fun, and she has an adorable style. Her expressions and eyes, in particular, are lovely.

Highlights from May: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8153746/
Highlights from one of the June sessions: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8246373/

Re: RedDyeNo5
Red is amazing, I got a charcoal portrait from them a few months ago and it was done and shipped within a few days, absolutely stunning detail. And I agree, the streams are great x3

3. June
4. VERY easy to work with! No issues with payment or communication and their turnaround speed is nothing short of amazing. I purchased a badge for Anthrocon 2012 from them (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8143008/) and received it with no problem whatsoever. I've even got another commission in the works from them, as they were such a delight to work with! They're also good with showing the art before finalizing anything without the commissioner's approval.
