July Positive Reviews!

Positive review time! :D

If you've had a great commission experience, as either an artist or commissioner, this is the post for you! You can reply with a full-on story, or a summary. We just want a few words about what made your commission experience so great. You can recommend companies, such as printers and fursuit-making teams, as long as its relative 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.

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:
March and May (two seperate pieces)

4. Details:
The art recieved is here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/13475822/ and http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12991458/
This artist is an absolute dream to work with! Super friendly and helpful and very responsive in terms of mailing and noting! I've been admiring their style for a really long time and I immideately jumped at the chance of getting art from them, so while I was fangirling in the mails she very helpfully and nicely responded and was in general a dream to commission <3
She's also very cheap for her popularity and her art skill in my opinion!

1. Name of the person you recommend: Kalika/kalika_tybera

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

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: It was an 11 character YCH auction piece with background that ended on May 30th. I paid within 24 hours and the finished product was emailed to me on June 23rd.

4. Details: Kalika is currently juggling an active home life [including a baby that isn't yet a year old if I'm remembering age correctly] along with her artwork and she still managed to get this very involved piece done in less than a month. This is the second mass-character YCH she's done and she always manages to make them so unique and detailed, it's very impressive!
She was willing to change my character's outfit slightly according to what I wanted and she even added his wings in even though she had said there wasn't room in the auction info [and understandably so!] I made sure to let her know I didn't mind if his wings were cut off for this piece, but she surprised me by adding them anyway!

All in all, the transaction went very well and I am very happy with the end result, as are, I believe, all the other people who participated in the auction.

Finished piece can be seen here [mildly NSFW, burlesque theme but not too racy]: https://www.furaffinity.net/view/13828961/

She's definitely worth at least a watch, but I'd be happy to hop in her next auction if she does another. :)

Edit cause I somehow forgot to add her name in the title, sorry!

1. Techtile
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/techtile
3. Paid April 2nd, Recieved art June 19th.
4. Techtile has a really cute style and her chibi prices were really good. The art took longer than I'd have liked, but I really didn't mind waiting. I got updates when I asked for them, so it was all good. I am quite pleased with the result. I pretty much wanted to be surprised, and only asked that it fit onto a perfectly square canvas (as some of the samples were more rectangular in size) since I wanted to be able to use it as an icon without it getting too small.

1. 9aia
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/9aia
3. Sent in my form on June 14th, received art on June 16th.
4. I saw 9aias FA ad and the chibis were so cute! I wanted one but wasn't too sure what I wanted. I said to make her wearing cutoff shorts that showed the pocket-bags out the bottom and maybe eating some fruit, maybe watermelon. I got a sketch WIP really fast and only asked for the watermelon slice to have a bite already taken out of it. The edit was done and the pic was finished really fast after that. 9aia needs to have more commissioners! the art is really cute and communication is great!

3. Paid on Jun. 14 and got the pic on Jun. 17

Yulliandress was such a great person to work with, despite having a little bit of an issue with Paypal. They did a splendid work portraying my character in their rendition

1. Name of the person you recommend: E-Momo
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/e-momo/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: May 17th-May 22th
4. Details: I've gotten two pictures from E-Momo, her art is incredibly pretty, affordable (I'd actually say it's underpriced, made sure to send a tip!) and the communication is perfect.

First piece I got from here was two months ago; https://www.furaffinity.net/view/13411413/
and the last one month ago, here: https://www.furaffinity.net/view/13529819/

I believe she is still taking $5 colored chibis, I'd recommend anyone looking for quality work to check it out! https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5764140/

1. Deriaz
2. FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/deriaz/
Weasyl: https://www.weasyl.com/~deriaz
3. I sent the request for a commission on May 19th, and received all the art by May 30th.
4. Details: I ordered 8 hours' worth of digital art. I gave him artistic freedom. He made the choice of which of my characters he wanted to draw, and how he wanted to divvy up the time among them.

He responded quickly, offered me frequent updates on the art as it progressed, and worked hard (sometimes even off the clock) for the sake of giving me art that we could both be proud of. It seemed clear to me that his first priority was making sure that I was 100% thrilled with my purchase.

I feel like his style is not too common for the furry world, and I just had to see how he would interpret my characters. Obviously, I'm very happy with the outcome!

The three pieces of art that he did for me can be found here:

1. Name of the person you recommend: Chutkat
2.Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/~chutkat
3.Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: June 6- June 15
4.Details: Chutkat is friendly and has a very unique, charming style! I adore her monochromic sketches, so I bought one when she opened for commissions at the start of June. Worth every cent! Her sketches are very clean with a lot of detail, she did a wonderful job with my character. You can view the art here: https://www.weasyl.com/submission/638666/fists-of-the-cat. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

1. Rooibos/Kale
2. https://www.weasyl.com/~rooibos
3. 5/27 to 6/27.
4. I originally requested a different picture theme, but after a short period of time I asked if I could change what I wanted -- Kale was BEYOND patient with me throughout the process.
She is, by far, one of my favorite people to commission and I would gladly do business with her again in the future.
Very sweet, very talented and very professional!

(I also bought an icon during her most recent sale).

1. Nightlinez
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/nightlinez/
3. Sent request June 10th, received finished product June 12th
4. I asked Nightlinez to design me a new character entirely from scratch -- I only said I'd like a Nubian goat with a sassy attitude and not a ton of markings all over as I plan to make this into a suit. Other details were artistic freedom, so Nightlinez worked with only a handful of details and was very quick to send me some ideas and WIP sketches plus colour ideas. I also like she really took care in selecting some outfits for the character, again with just a few vague ideas from me. The turnaround time was also really quick and she was very friendly in our communication.
Bonuspoints for using Star Wars insignia for the colour palette ;)

I'll for sure commission her again :)

Finished product is here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/13715919/

1. Name: Lanceafew or Lance C Bones
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/lanceafew
3. I have ongoing business with him. (Regular customer of mine.)
4. I don't recall when I was first contacted by Lance but he has commissioned me various times over the years. I have to say, he is THE BEST commissioner. He's very kind and patient and VERY generous when it comes to payment. He never asks for anything NSFW and it's usually cute ideas he has. He's always been a pleasure to work with and your business with him would probably add another friend to your list. (His character also has a very simple design which makes drawing him a breeze.) So yeah if he ever contacts you I'd totally take him up on his commission offer because he's really great.

1 - Dez/Dezblade
2 - http://dezblade.deviantart.com/
3 - June 21st - 22nd
4 - I started doing pokemon commissions, and Dez commissioned me almost right away. His references were easy to see, his payment was prompt, and he answered all questions in a quick, simple manner. I didn't think until afterwards, but he decided to commission me instead of spend money on the Steam Summer Sale, and that made me super pleased. I've worked with him before at conventions, and he's always been great. I never expected him to hit me up online. Maybe it was just the timing, but he's a pleasure to work with and I would gladly work with him again.
(Here is the art I did for him!)

1. Name of the person you recommend: Uberskunk
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/~uberskunk and http://www.furaffinity.net/user/uberskunk/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: 30th June - 8th July
4. Details: I was sent their way through someone on Facebook as I was looking to get a piece done of a rodent (cavy technically) and most artists I know are more specialised towards canines/felines. His (pretty hilarious) attitude on his page and fantastic work immediately made me want to throw money at him! He's very specialised at small squeaky things and a very fast and fair artist.
https://www.weasyl.com/submission/661933 I cannot wait to get this in person!
