October positive reviews!

If you've had a great commission experience, either as an artist or a customer, please comment here and spread the word. It doesn't have to be a full-on story, though you're welcome to type one! All we need are a few lines on why this person was so great to work with. You can also recommend companies, such as printers or fursuit-making teams.

There are plenty of reasons to post someone here: perhaps they went above and beyond the call of duty to fix a problem, or were so prompt with communication and payment it was like having them right next to you, or were very professional and courteous every time you contacted them.

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

1. Name of the person you recommend (please also put this in the subject of your comment):
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.

27th, detailed headshot and animation
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8949968/ (the headshot)

Komical was near instant with replies, and I received the pieces very quickly. The art received was very true to character, and shows so much detail that it is obvious the artist cared about making sure even a little piece like that was done well and completely. They even offered to stream the process for me, though I was busy and couldn't make it.

Late Aug-Mid Sept
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8884587/ I ordered as a chibi version of my fursona and Pie was prompt and delivered it. I think it's stinkin' cute and it was a hassle-free business transaction.

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/pocketmen
3. {aid September 26th, received icon next day.
4. I saw a journal from pocketmen saying they were open for animated Starfox-themed icons and I had to jump in! I got this icon for a mere $10 since I was one of the first 5 people who posted. With a small tip it all came to $13, which frankly is a STEAL for an animated icon of this quality. Normal prices are only $12, +3 if you want a death sequence. They're very nice and extremely funny, would definitely buy again.


(The icon I got is the one I'm posting with :> )

4. I got a full body cel shaded image of my character, and he came out amazing. I am very happy with the final product. Kasune was fast, friendly and very easy to work with.

3. Paid August 23th, received icon September 5th.
4. I saw a journal from them saying they were open for animated hypno icons and jumped on the opportunity! I've bought icons from them before and loved them, and always wanted one of the hypno icons. I bought two, only SIX DOLLARS each!! Total paid was $12, plus a small tip bringing it to $15. The icons are lovely and I adore them. <3 One of them I'm posting with.

You can see the two icons I got here (the other one is the bird with the blue beak and glasses), though it isn't animated here.

3. Paid September 20th, received art the next day!
4. This was actually a gift for my friend. Coey is one of their favorite artists, and when they saw they were open for painted bust commissions, of course I had to get them one. XD The picture was only 20 dollars, I couldn't even believe it! I sent them the payment and a tip, and what they sent back was incredible:

Our is the first one, the boy with the jar. For only 20 dollars and only a wait of a day, this was an incredible deal. They were also very polite and professional. :>

September 18 - 20
Ordered a flat color pony commission, received the sketch and then the final only two days later. Kasune was very polite and responsive throughout the commission, and he really seemed to enjoy doing art for my character!

Name: Extra-Vertebrae on tumblr, ManicInTricolor on Deviantart.
Gallery: http://extra-vertebrae.tumblr.com/
Date: July through September
Details: Super prompt, very pleasant to negotiate with, her style is killer and there's something for everyone's budget. I've commissioned her three times this summer and would definitely do so again.

These two colored sketches were only $10 apiece-
And this one was only $20-

1. Name: Kasune
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://artistsnclients.com/people/Kasune
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: September 18-19
4. Details: Kasune was super easy to contact, incredibly fast, and made me the prettiest new sadface icon. (Which I'm using in this post even though it's a happy post.)

Aaaaaaaaaaaah I love that this opened! I received my commission from a friend yesterday and I was dying to give her a good review somewhere.

1. Kyuume
2. She has a Yaoi Gallery, a deviantArt and a Tumblr. I think ygal and Tumblr are the sites she checks the most.
3. I inquired about this commission the 23rd of September and got the finished product on the 30th; due to a mistake of mine I needed it flipped and re-watermarked and she sent me the corrected version yesterday.
4. Jen has a gorgeous style for faces and composition, and I truly adore how she draws; plus, she's quite good at catching the essence of the characters she's supposed to portrait so in my book that's a plus; in addition, she's also fast and professional, not to mention patient.
Link to her commission information and link to completed commission, SFW.

I definitely rec her to anyone interested. She normally draws humans but time ago she mentioned she'd be willing to draw even anthros.

1. Name: non-lo-so (FA)
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/non-lo-so/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: August 5 to Sept 30
4. Details: The artist is incredibly friendly and polite, and kept me updated on my commission and was very prompt in her replies to me. My commission was originally for a sketch, but the artist felt that he had taken too long on it and colored it for me to "make up for the wait". I didn't feel that the wait time was too long at all (especially for the quality of it!), but I definitely appreciate their extra work! I'm for sure going to commission them again in the hopefully soon future.

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/suan-cat
3. Paid Sept. 14, received Sept. 26
4. Details: The artist was running a $50 lolita special I couldn't possibly pass up. She designed a pair of utterly delicious outfits for my characters, directly out of her own creative drive. The turn around was very swift, especially given the detail, quality and her queue at the time. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results I would absolutely commission her again.

3. Paid September 4th, Completed September 5th, Received product September 10th.
4. Popped into one of her livestreams where she was taking commissions for custom dice bags, which I wanted to order as a birthday present for my boyfriend.
She was very helpful, and very patient with me. I wasn't sure what fabrics she had or what I wanted, so she asked me a lot of questions about what my boyfriend was into and took the time to show me a lot of her huge stock of fabrics!
Furthermore, she finished it the next day and I received it in less than a week. An awesome experience all around. And the bag is so pretty: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8797280/

3. Over the last several months.
4. I've gotten two personal commissions and two pieces of story "cover art" recently. She has just been great. Gives wips and asks for feedback all the way along. Usually gets things done super-fast (just a couple of days!) and is just easy and awesome to work with.


http://www.y-gallery.net/view/893459/ (Site is NSFW maybe, pic in question is not.)

Those were each less than $20, which is also a really great deal for colored work!

Ressy on FA
Ressy on FA
September 26-now.

I'm getting an extremely detailed reference sheet (front/back, 3 chibis, 3 headshots, text, color chart, NSFW close up) that is /cellshaded/ for only $100. She has a very unique art style!
She has very high quality art for the price she sells it for. She is very timely, she sent me a sketch of my commission within a week of commissioning her. She is friendly, quick to respond to notes, thorough and clear.
I recommend her if you like the kind of art she does!!

1. Name of the person you recommend:

Rebecca Sharpe / Sharpe19 (on FA and DA), SharpeCostumes

2. Link to person's website or art page:




3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person:

Within the last month - present

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!!):

Sharpe has been nothing but sweet, kind, caring, and she has always been prompt to respond. She even let me sit and watch as my fursuit head was being made over UStream, asking me if I wanted any changes made WHILE she worked on it live over the net, and she wanted to ensure my happiness with the product over anything else. She worked diligently and hard to assure I was satisfied. She even added extra fur pieces on (she used over 3 types of white furs on my fursuit head) just to ensure my satisfaction. She finished it and painted it exactly as I had envisioned. The quality of her work really shows, and it is all due to her hard work and dedication, and passion to making her clients happy. :)

I would definitely recommend her to any furson interested in getting a fursuit commissioned. I look forward to receiving my head from her!
