September Positive Reviews

Aww yis, it's that time again!

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.

Name: Pixelstitches
Link: https://www.weasyl.com/~pixelstitches
Time period: 16th August - 1st September
Details: I was looking to get a new alt character and found their word eggs (currently closed) and one of the designs they'd already finished was *awesome*. I had to get myself one! Then I realised they had two sheets and had to get more than one haha.

They were really sweet and apologetic that it had taken a bit longer than they wanted but I am so patient I could have waited longer :V
The designs are so cool.

Name: CrescentPony (FA) icrezzy (tumblr)
Link: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/crescentpony http://icrezzy.tumblr.com/
Time: June 1st - August 29th
Details: I had held a follower raffle on Tumblr starting May 22nd and ending June 1st. Icrezzy was the only person to enter, and automatically the winner. They gave me a ref, but I was having trouble coming up with poses and situations for their character. I ended up having a lot of problems at home between my dad, moving to another state, and then having my SO leave for the Navy. This caused me to be art blocked for a long time. I messaged Icrezzy on tumblr stating I was having a hard time, and that I apologized for taking so long. They were very very understanding, and super easy to talk to. I told them that they could choose a different character and gave them the option to change their prize into something similar since I was taking so long. They gave me their new spacey fox character to draw, and I completed their prize of one chibi, one flat drawing, plus a headshot as a thank you for being so patient and understanding.

They were so sweet and understood why I was taking so long. They didn't rush or badger me about it, either. I took way, way too long to complete their prizes, and I accept full responsibility for my tardiness. They were so easy to talk to, and replied to my messages in a timely matter. I would absolutely work with them again.

Time: August 18th - August 22nd
Details: Shane opened for a second series of a limited commission line, and since I wanted to get in on the first one and couldn't, I was really happy about this.
He was very professional and incredibly fast, and understanding when I had a problem with my Paypal.

Name: MonoPrice
Link: http://monoprice.deviantart.com/
Time: August 2014
Details: Ordered one feral commission from them and gave them artistic freedom. I loved the style they used, the quick turnaround, and the resulting art, so I ordered four more. They've since completed those four and I've already ordered another four from them. :)

3. Time: Mid-August
4. Details: I saw their original submission of some really unique and cool "door knocker" style badges and decided to commission one for myself. I gave them a fair few details and art direction for how I wanted it to look and they absolutely followed them to a tee and totally flourished with them! It was shipped to me promptly, and the board used to keep it from bending was actually an extra illustration of my character which was so awesome to receive.

2. Link: http://pyro-draws.tumblr.com/
3. Time: 22nd August - 29th of August
4. Details: I wanted two seperate commissions of my favourite anime characters, because I knew they would look wonderful in his style. Communication throughout the entire transaction was amazing, he showed me WIPS through every stage for feedback. As far as I know, he has never seen either of the series in question and he clearly did quite a bit of research on the characters because he got them absolutely spot on.

4) Details: I was looking to get a bust sculpture commission of my character and really enjoyed their work. They were reasonably priced with excellent attention to detail. Wonderful results, super communicative with WIPs and willingness to adjust as needed, very friendly and professional throughout. I loved it so much I commissioned a second more complex piece and received a reply instantly and the work was completed with about a 2 week turnaround. Highly recommend!

4. Details: She was really amazing to work with and were really reassuring when I was stressed over why my payment wouldn't go through at first and didn't mind waiting as I sorted it out. She kept me up to date on things with plenty of WIP pictures. She even finished my commission while not feeling up to snuff.

Name: Shagpoke
Link: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/shagpoke
Time period: February to August
Shagpoke made a new tail for me and we started talking about some refurb I wanted to do to my head which had been puppy-ised and a bit worn out. She really went above and beyond discussing different techniques and looking at fur and TLK screencaps to help figure out what work we could do to get the head looking new and a bit more on-model.

Turns out my old head could not be refurbed so she agreed to do a new head at discounted price for me.

The new head is wonderful. She took extra time to check that all the markings were dead on and to add some little details like a fluffy bit between the part of the mane and some longer hair on the cheeks blending into the mane. These are little character details, but since I've had the same character unchanged since 1998 the little things are important to me. She was very understanding of that and hit it all out of the park!

Communication was great- unfortunately my health is very poor so I'm not always able to be home and she worked around that with me as well.

When there turned out to be bad ventilation problem that was fogging the eyes she offered to pay to install a fan and for the shipping to return the head. I decided to do the fan myself, it didn't seem fair to stick her with that extra cost when she did the head at a discount. Still the point is that she offered to pay for whatever needed to be done to fix the eyes fog, with no cost to me.

I absolutely would recommend Shagpoke for any fursuit needs you might have!

Name; Diorama
Link; http://www.furaffinity.net/user/diorama/
Date; September 3rd, I received the art on the 5th
Details; OKAY SO, i stumbled across this user's gallery, and fell in love with their style. I saw they had opened commissions and I just HAD to commission them. Not only are they easy to work with, but they have a great personality too. I definitely suggest commissioning Diorama! They created two adoptable bases for me that are so fun to work with, so the commission was done timely, and flawlessly. Definitely recommend Diorama. [ I'd post the artwork but they were bases created for me, so I don't feel comfortable posting that ]

3: Um, always, but July-present for the latest.
4: Super fast turnaround. I've never had to wait longer'n a week or two. Great art for an extremely reasonable price. Dodge constantly checks in, will happily post WIPs for you, and is open to asking for modifications-he was incredibly easy to work with when I asked him to do a lineart base for a ref sheet. He was also willing to do a payment plan for the most recent piece (still in progress).

I got this icon and the one I'm using here in the space of a few days.

This NSFW sketch was done in a few hours, and this guy I got within a week.

3.Commissioned on August 28- Delivered on Aug 29
4.My second commission from Plaguedog. She made a journal on DA offering two types of commissions, but all slots were full when I got to it. Next day she opened for three more slots via the same journal post, while streaming the first batch. I asked in the stream if I could grab a slot and got it. She added me to the list as a fourth slot. I sent her a note of the commission details, and she was excited about the character and idea. A day later she got to my commission and finished it in the stream, while I watched and give input. Both of us are thrilled with the image. Always a good experience with this artist. She is talented, friendly and professional.
