February 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!!):

Name of the person you recommend: zummeng

Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: January 23rd to February 1st.
Details: I ordered my first commission from them on January 23rd and they had it done within hours.

I commissioned them a second time on January 30th and, again, my art was finished in only a few hours.

Today, I've paid for a third commission and am eagerly awaiting the result!

First commission, which cost me $3.50: SFW http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12570551/

Second commission, which cost me $2.50: SFW http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12629426/

I already know that I'll be going back to that artist again and again for more art!

4. Fadzai has a lovely style and a great work ethic. She accounts for any wait time by only taking payment upon sketch approval, and her communication is top notch. She's extremely attentive to detail and an all around joy to work with. I'm thrilled with the results of both pieces, and I definitely plan to commission her in the future!

These are very belated, I kept meaning to then derping out and forgetting until weeks later so finally getting on with it.

1. nambroth
2. Tumblr | DA | Weasyl
3. Back in March last year
4. Nam needed help with some nasty vet bills at the time so I jumped on the discounted hourly rates that I wouldn't have been able to afford normally at the time. Linked her the infamous British Long Tailed Tit for an hour slot and let her go nuts getting this gorgeous result that is still my desktop at work. Bonus for unintentionally being before my Birthday as well :)


3. Back in November (Ish?)
4. Storenvy was having a promption to help small businesses and I figured more Nambroth art would be a perfect last minute Christmas present. I ordered two prints, BEHOLD of her chicken Kua and Hart of the Oak since I love Scotland myself. Not only did they come super quickly, she also slipped in a surprise extra print of Three French Hens which was an amazing surprised and my mother absolutely loved the lot of them :)

2. Weasyl | Tumblr
3. August last year
4. Of the many times of being a legit wonderful person (Such as aiding in scaring engineers with MLP misprint stickers) I snagged a mini original of a gorgeous snow leopard last year. Unfortunately for me Storenvy can get a bit silly about shipping international and had randomly declared that the print was actually book sized in weight. With the options of refund the difference or get an extra, I went for the little extra. Attached to my mother's monitor is Anna P Guinea said little extra in her protective sleeve :)

They both still have pride and place, absolutely adore them both.

3. December last year
4. I decided to grab a sketch edition of Kiki's first art book in a help an artist and shiny things way. By some form of magic it got here before Christmas (Which given international borks by December is clearly a miracle) well packed and included a wonderful little sketch of a British Bulldog and a bird that was just as well done as any of her artwork. Plus there was two stickers and even a little magnet that had been snuck in there! She's also incredibly modest and polite the entire time I dealt with her and generally a lovely person.

3. Off and on for the past 8 years. Most recent was last week.
4. FDF knows exactly what he wants and doesn't overcomplicate things in his emails. He pays promptly and without protest or prodding. He also gives me different characters to work with which push me out of my comfortzone (thankfully) http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12571109/

3. Few months ago, image finished last week.
4. She knew I was having a health issue and I kept her up to date on it, as it really put me under the table when it came to work. She gave me free reign with her image as well, and was patient and polite about the whole thing. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12562270/

3. Early to mid January
4. She had a 'pay what you want' option, so I opted for $10 to get a colored bust. She got it to me fairly quickly and there were a couple of small mistakes, but she fixed them up a few days later and I am very pleased. I will probably get a bigger piece from her next time. :)

4. I was surfing FA at work and she had this YCH pose up. I liked the squishy tummy so I got it. It originally had more paw-like hands but she changed them for me. I am pleased with it!

4. I saw someone I've done commissions for in the past with this cute waddling avatar so I clicked around to find out who did it. When I did, he didn't seem interested in taking my money, so I offered an art trade and he accepted. I got this cute icon and I made him a naughty doodle.

2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/musicofluie/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: First noted Jan 30, art received Feb 3.
4. Details: They have a really adorable toony style of artwork and I was intrigued because I wanted a badge. The artist is extremely friendly and even though he recently posted a journal about closing for commissions to catch up on a backlog, it literally took 4 days from when I first noted him to when he finished my badge. He even sends an initial sketch without you having to ask, just to make sure you like how it's coming out. Very friendly/sociable artist with great, reasonably priced art and quick turnaround times!

Badge referred to in this post: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12655712/

1. Name: spartan713
2. Link: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/sierra713/
3. Date of Transaction: Jan 26th, 2014
4. Details:
Spartan was an absolute pleasure to work with. She drew my character in a "Furballz" style, which is like a detailed furry chibi. The work was finished the very next day from my inquiry, which is an exceptionally fast turnaround time. She also gave me a video recording of the work in progress, which was very interesting to watch. Later, she noticed I was using it as an icon, and kindly animated the eyes blinking for me. I felt that this was extremely thoughtful, and it made an already amazing transaction even better.

With her amazing art style, affordable prices, and swift communication/turn around, I highly recommend this artist for your commission needs!

Please mark NSFW if the subject matter is adult!!): I first ordered 10 chibis and then added a secondary commission where a character that was meant to be the offspring of two other characters was designed. They are really pleasant to work with and completed these much quicker than anticipated.

10 Chibis:

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: mid-February

4. Details:
Prompt, kept an open line of communication, patient, and very nice. The finished image was ten times better than I was expecting and I'm still pretty blown away by it. She was very pleasant throughout the entire process, I really enjoyed getting to commission her. Regarding the completed image, I was not expecting that level of perfection -- or that level of courtesy, or the short timeframe, and certainly not all three together. This is a wonderful artist, very highly recommended!
