Monthly Positive Reviews: August!

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:
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.

Trades are are welcome, advertising for your friends or significant others is not. Neither is posting positive reviews because your artist asked for you to (good reviews come from the heart!). So if customers and just plain advertising are what they/you seek, check out teenycom, artsales or artcommissions.

4. Commissioned them for a custom adopt as seen here (NSFW for gore). It was streamed and finished within a day and is exactly what I wanted! She's a wonderful artist to work with and I'm actually commissioning them again haha.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Travaris Rhade
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/travarisrhade/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: June 28th 2013 - July 4th 2013
4. Details: I commissioned Travaris June 28th because I saw he was having financial difficulty. I commissioned him for an anniversary piece for my boyfriend and I to celebrate our 3rd year together. The commission was everything I asked for, and could have hoped for. It's simply beautiful.
He was always prompt with his replies, and very efficient with the couple of corrections and alterations I asked for. Overall, highly recommended.

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Past 3 years
4. Details: I've taken multiple commissions out from Bloodhound. She's quite prompt, never takes on a bigger queue than she can handle, and is pleasant to work with. Longest I've ever had to wait for a piece is a couple weeks, and I've not aware of anyone having negative experiences.

1. Rowkey

3. late July
4. Hopped on the waiting list for icons, and received my piece within a few days of contact. Rowkey has a great, varied, and constantly evolving style, so it's always a pleasure to commission her. She's also one of the friendliest and most professional artists I've worked with.

Using it with this comment! (Will edit in / reply with a FA link later.)

3. late July
4. I grabbed a sketch from a themed round, and once again, Skulldog didn't disappoint: courteous and professional, amazing turnaround times and consistent, high-quality work. Her system for taking and tracking commissions is also very streamlined and easy for the commissioner!

3. July 31st
4. Disidi decided to offer some experimental Livestream portraits, and I couldn't resist. All work was completed in one session, and the resulting portraits were of her usual excellent quality! She was also extremely attentive and captured the character's essence flawlessly.

It was both a custom work (ones that she hasn't done in a while) and done fast due me wanting it for a con at the end of same month (through international shipping) and it came in time even though I asked it so late!

1. Name of the person you recommend: Tybay
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://tybay.deviantart.com/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: July
4. Details: I contacted her to do one of her single character sketches (full body for $12 USD). Her pricing is excellent for the quality and I contacted her right away to do a sketch of my Warcraft character. She replied promptly and showed a great enthusiasm for my character and what I hoped to see for the final commission. She finished the commission in a very reasonable time frame and I would definitely contact her again for future commission needs!

4. I missed out on her previous headshots slots, so I was happy to get in on time for these badge slots (though I probably won't use it as a badge, just an icon). She has wonderful quality, fast turnaround and it was only like, $30. :)

1. Name of the person you recommend: KingJupiter
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://kingjupiter.deviantart.com/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Jul 23-Aug 12

4. Details: I commissioned KingJupiter for two cell-shaded pieces with painted backgrounds (here and here), and, man. Her prices are super low, and her work is lovely. She was really patient with my sometimes days-on lack of response, especially when I was having trouble scrounging up references for a friend's character, and completed the work once given references within a couple of days.

Highly recommended. :3

Details: I commissioned a custom sprite of my OC, to be paid in Flight Rising's Treasure currency. They had my order done within an hour, which was an amazing surprise! The result was wonderful, and they did a quick color correction in just minutes. Will definitely be getting more sprites from them. :)

First version of spite:

And with the color correction:

4. They were fantastic to work with, very prompt and quick to communicate, and the tails came out beautifully! I'm really excited to have two of my characters' tails come to life and I'm so glad to have had them do it.

Here are the tails:
