May 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, as long as it's relevant to artists!

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.

She was offering some cute and cheap chibis so I had to snag some. She worked very quickly with great results. Very great to work with!

3. mid-March through mid-April
4. I'd been watching Saphirawolf for awhile, so I was excited to see her opening commissions. She definitely did not disappoint. Working from just a text description and some real world references, she captured the character perfectly. She's also extremely attentive and professional and an all-around joy to work with.

3. late April
4. PhantoMinus offered stream commissions where the process could be watched from traditional sketch to digital coloring. Not only is his style gorgeous, but he created a wonderful piece from just a text description and a few guidelines. He's also extremely professional and very accommodating to all his customers.

Re: PhantoMinus
Seconding! (Mine was just prior to yours during the same offer.)
He is a wonderful communicator and makes sure of his customers' happiness throughout the process. He was happy to work with a vague idea and I love the outcome.
I am extremely happy with the work and the person!

I've commissioned him in the past and he's lovely at communication - so, so happy to commission him when I can.

3. got on waiting list in March; when slot reached in mid-April, received the work within a day or two
4. Skulldog is extremely pleasant and professional. Her process is very streamlined, and she has a lovely, unique style. She absolutely captured the essence of the character, as well.

3. beginning of April
4. Ritts offered a quick colored sketch slot, and I jumped on the opportunity. The turnaround was less than a day and absolutely adorable. He was also very friendly but professional and even offered a preview sketch.

1. Arpad
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/arpad
3. late March through early April
4. Arpad opened a few early slots for commissions, and, having received excellent work from him before, I jumped at the chance. He worked from just a text description and some relevant real world references, and it came out perfectly. Not only was the character spot on, but he captured the erotic (as opposed to "pornographic") feel I was imagining.

3) Late April early May
4) I saw an ad on Tathi's journal for a commissioner that was offering bust commissions at 20 a pop. I decided that I would totally grab one and I got the very last slot. She did a fantastic job with Kalpso and I am so pleased. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10537874

Re: Thug
The piece I have from them is from a while back, but she is a fantastic artist!

3. paid on 4/21 and completed on 4/23
4. I've been a fan of Peritian's works for a long time. I paid her for a wing-it commission and she completed it two days after payment. I'm very happy to work with such a terrific artist

3. paid on 4/3 and completed on 4/21
4. I absolutely adore those pixel icons that TheBeesKnees did with BadJooJoo. So I got an animated one of my fursona (the one I'm using right now) and it came out nicely! Definitely worth $50 (former price)

Name: Megacreomon
Link: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/megacreomon
Art Received: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10397635/
Time Period: April 2013
Details: I don't put a lot of faith in any kind of emergency commission but I was linked to this artist from a "Help Me!" journal and didn't mind spending the money at the time.
I love how this turned out, she is so cute with her weirded out face!

I am a month off with posting some of these because of a family emergency. I really wanted the artists to be seen so I waited for the May post to put them up.

Art Received: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10462414/

Name: Mermade
Link: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mermade/
Art Received: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10132081/
Time Period: March-April 2013
Details: The artist opened for a commission of an artistic license item. For a discounted price you suggested a species and they would go from there. I suggested harp seal and have been so happy with this hat. I can't wait to wear it next winter! Very quick turn around, fast shipping and good product. Would commission again.

3. March 3 - April 16
4. Bees is an amazing artist and I had wanted to commission her for some time. She was very fast in her responses to my notes and even provided a completion date without being asked. She kept me updated when she experienced some real life issues that delayed her commissions by a couple of days. I received my painting on the revised completion date. It was all I was expecting from her and more. She seemed very happy to paint my character, which is always a plus. I highly recommend commissioning Bees and will do so again myself.
