WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/twilightsaint/ and http://twilightsaint.deviantart.com/
WHEN: 19th-22nd of July
WHAT: I was looking for artists to commission, and one of my friends mentioned it was easy to find people on FurAffinity thanks to the ads. This was how I found TwilightSaint. I read her Terms of Service, which at the time appeared to be fine, and skimmed through her gallery before I signed up and sent her a note. This is the first time I have commissioned an artist, and I did not know exactly what they would like in terms of references and descriptions. The entirety of our conversation is included below the cut:

Bottom line: Her turnaround was quick, but that is the only statement from her ad I found to be correct. The art was not high quality, and the communication was anything but excellent. While I only paid $20 for this icon, it did feel like a complete waste of my money.
