September 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.

4. Toosdee has an amazing retro cartoon style that I absolutely adore. I commissioned her for a $10 sketch of my character Westminster and she finished it within a week. I LOVE how it turned out.

3. August 20th
4. I commissioned Malkyru for one of their inked drawings of my alien, Cog. Malkyru has always been one of my favorite artists and I couldn't pass up a chance to commission them. They finished my art within a couple of days and perfectly captured my character!

4. I only recently discovered Luciana-Lu on FA and shortly after she opened up for some headshot sketches. I love her human art a lot and decided to commission two of them. She finished them quickly and was an absolute pleasure to talk to during the commission process.

3. About a month ago.
4. CountRamsely is just starting out taking commissions and was offering $3 sketches. I bought one of the Deacon from Waterworld and he finished the initial sketch within a week and then later decided to ink and color it because he liked how it turned out. I also got another sketch of Imhotep from The Mummy.

3. The notes were on my old account, but the commission was completed on August 16 which was a few weeks after first contact!
4. The artist has a wonderful, unique style, and is really lovely to work with. I'm already planning on commissioning her again! My friend commissioned her around the same time and was just as happy.

Fishyboner/bonepile studios
1. Fishyboner@FA Bonepilestudios at various other places.
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/fishyboner
3. Received art a few days ago, commissioned in April and did payments up through June.
4. She had perfect communication and showed me many updates. She was professional and I didn't have a long wait to get my piece.
Everything wen't smoothly, I've commissioned this same artist a few times in the past few years and it's always been a perfect transaction!

This is the piece I got.
It's an 11x17 size watercolor painting!

Among one of my favorite pieces.

4. Anuvia opened for Iron Artist and I've admired her renderings of full figured characters so I jumped onto the queue. She streamed the picture and was very fast!

Subdivisions takes on a large queue of coloured sketches, so I was expecting a much longer wait, but they work very quickly while maintaining quality work for what you pay! They are friendly and make sure you are happy with the WIP before finishing. I will be commissioning them again in the future!

luraklos @DA / busterbomb via email
i'm reccomending LURAKLOS

i've been doing business with luraklos consistantly all through 2013. he's the sort who regularly commissions and continues to do so if he likes your work.

he's patient with works, and will communicate if things do/do not please him with sketches without coming off as pushy or nitpicky. when he likes something, he makes sure you know! he's very considerate of the rights and efforts of the artists he's paying. he often tips, and ocassionally pays above your asking price.

he's also very open to suggestions with his comic work. if you want to change a panel layout, tweak dialogue or add an additional panel for clarity he'll be cool with that discussion.

i feel like he doesn't get enough credit because sometimes his communications can be a little "engrishy" - but he's a SPECTACULAR commissioner, i can not sign his praises highly enough. even with his periodicly awkward grammatical structure, his descriptions and reference material is always very concise and clear, with all the necessary details present. i've never felt his command of english has got in the way of the clarity of his descriptions.

folks have actually snubbed him in the past for his english, and they're making a huge mistake. dude's awesome. could not ask for a better customer.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Blekarotva
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/blekarotva
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Not sure of the exact commission date, but it was sometime around August 4th. My commission was finished less than a month later on August 27th.
4. Details: A friend of mine commissioned Blekarotva for a pic of both of our characters. I decided to commission a response pic! I pitched the idea to Blek, who put me on their Iron Artist list. I was actually the last person of about 10 or so and they finished them all in less than a month. They're speedy and the quality is great. Their prices are fair and I had a great time commissioning them. :)

Here's the pic I got [possible NSFW, barbie doll nudity]: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11470075/

3. June 8 - August 25
4. She was a pleasure to work with. She set a timeline for each stage and kept it, providing scheduled WIPs along the way. She did a fantastic job rendering a scene that was very emotional for me.
