Happy December! Positive Reviews Post

We're in the home stretch for 2013! Time to shop around for those holiday commissions, and sooo...

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!

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 just as welcome as paid transactions. But try not to post for friends (or yourself) who are looking to be commissioned. If customers are what they/you seek, teenycom, artsales or artcommissions is for them!

3. early to mid November
4. I commissioned Skulldog for a pic of a character that previously had none. She worked solely from text details and real life references, and the results were amazingly accurate and, as always, beautiful. It's easily one of my favorite commissioned pieces. I honestly can't recommend her enough; she has a very unique style, a professional but friendly demeanor, and a quick turnaround.

3. Bought prepose on Oct28, art posted on Nov20.
4. A set of YCH slots for all four Hogwarts houses were posted. The one I would have gone with (Ravenclaw) was taken, so I went with Slytherin as the pose was also quite cute. I am pleased with the result!

3. Bought and received photo of drawing Nov10, scan received Nov22.
4. OMG. I have been a fan of Aimees for at least 12 years. I've always wanted to get a drawing from her so when she posted on her FB that she was going to do some chibis, I sent her an email immediately. She had the drawing done the same day. It took a little longer for her to send me the scan, but it wasn't a long wait at all. She sent me a huge version to let me color it myself. :) Very happy!

3. Dec1 bought and completed.
4. Temrin participated in HomeCon... and I missed her 'icon day' but she let me order one anyway. I've admired the little chibi things for a while so I was glad to get one. :)

1. Sticky-Bubblegum
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sticky-bubblegum
3. Mid to late November.
4. I bought a coloured sketch commission from Sticky a while back, and I liked it so much I wanted it finished up. I gave her extra freedom with the rendering, and the result was timely and absolutely gorgeous! The experimentation made it even better. :D I would definitely recommend her!!

3. They contacted me (I estimate) 5 months ago, consistent off-and-on business since then.
4. Purpleparadise very rapidly became a favorite client of mine. They speak with constant clarity and politeness, giving clever and well-described themes for every commission, which I feel produces more elegant results on my end. They are also incredibly patient, as real-life issues sometimes caused longer turnarounds- which is truly regrettable when you're working with an excellent client. One look at their profile tells you how much they support self-employed artists. I recommend them to everyone

3. They commissioned me during my Iron Artist a year ago and are doing so again for the Steel Artist series this month.
4. Nebriwolf is particularly awesome for their patience. They preach being very patient with artists and wholly follow this. Nebri is also the reason I now take SL screenshots for refs- originally I didn't, but their reference (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8747528/ NSFW) is so clear and easy to understand, it really does stand out as a good reference. I recommend this client to everybody

1. Name of the person you recommend: EnjoiPandas

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

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Sent a form around late November (before MFF), received my piece on Thanksgiving

4. Details
I sent my form for a 3 view reference sheet via Sunny Valley Creations' page sometime around the 22nd or so of November (not positive). I knew she was going to MFF, so I didn't expect to hear a response until after then. I got a note from her on FA on the 26th saying she had my form and would get started on my reference. Two days later (on Thanksgiving no less!) she already had a WIP sketch for me, and a few hours later she had finished the entire reference, including a print-friendly version (which is AWESOME, I didn't even ask for that!). She was SUPER sweet and friendly in *every* note, and was so accommodating when I forgot to mention a few details. I highly recommend her if you happen to need a reference sheet. They're specifically for fursuits, but she can draw them in any maker's style you wish :)

1. viridilly on da

3. ordered on around oct 24th and it was delivered nov 25th!

4. once i saw her work i just /KNEW/ i had to get a thing. i love how she captures character's personalities. it wasn't that long of a wait, but before accepting my commission she made sure to keep me aware that there'd be slowness due to her midterms which was perfectly fine and understandable. and was well worth it! on the 23rd she updated me about delays, sent me a wip and it was done only a few days after.

i LOVE the finished result, she was so spot on with my and my gf's ocs that i rushed to grab their last slot today!! she even asked when i noted her today if i wanted mine done by a certain date, and i did specify i'd love to have it in a week, but even if she does take a bit longer, i feel her art is so worth it<3

(the 2nd)

she even did me a freebie doodle of my oc as an apology, and it's just too cute! http://alishoardhouse.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/5/9/13598196/5384500_orig.png?207

3. End of Nov. 2013
4. She was offering some amazing sketch commissions as a deal, and I have commissioned her in the past and always love her work. She was very prompt to reply and got this commission done really quickly! Her quality is always top-notch. It is always a pleasure commissioning her and her traditional artwork is a solid addition to any art collection :)

1. Ket3
2. http://ket3.tumblr.com/
3. Early this month.
4. I was looking for someone to do a Christmas present for my boyfriend and got in touch with Renaris. They recommended Ket3 and a bunch of their friends and I chose Ket3 for this one. They were extremely fast in responding even though I'm sure there's a time difference and the finished product came out gorgeous.

Definitely on the to commission again list!

1. CheyennesStudio
2. FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/cheyennesstudio/ DA: http://cheyennestudios.deviantart.com/
3. Dec 22-28th
4. I wanted to commission a special piece of my fiancé’s character and mine as his Christmas present. I wanted a romantic NSFW scene. I contacted an artist and they were uncertain if they could do it. They gave it a shot but felt they were unable to put out a piece they were happy with. I understand that completely. A refund was given and I logged in to find this on Dec 22. I had no issue with that and I decided to commission CheyennesStudio as she had done icons for my mate and I in the past. I received a reply the same day and after hashing out the details work began. She was very quick and always made sure I was happy with the WIP shots before continuing. I don’t yet have a ref sheet for my character and she checked to make sure marking, etc were correct. She was always very professional and friendly. I mentioned wanting it completed sometime before the holidays were over but I understood if she couldn’t meet said deadline. My commission was completed today on Dec 28. I am so happy about how well it turned out. I wanted a romantic, tender moment not just a sex scene and I got exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t be happier with both her conduct and the final piece. I highly recommend this artist and my mate and I will likely commission her again.
The final piece is here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12361632/ (NSFW)
