February Positive Reviews

It's the month of ~~love~~.

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. Commissioned a sketch on Jan 29th, completed Jan 30th.
4. I got a sketch commission from Spear's weekend sketch stream. It was completed promptly during stream Jan 30th. Fantastic service, and the art looked spot on to the character.

1. LRStudio / Lina
2. http://lrstudio.tumblr.com/
3. Several different commissions over the course of 2012-2014
4. Lina goes above and beyond any other person I have ever done business with in order to make a product you are satisfied with. Every time I work with her my jaw winds up on the floor with what she produces. If I were able, I would just constantly throw money at her for art. It's worth every penny! She's also super nice and easy to work with, too.

3. Last week
4. Ordered a IA commission from her, it got done within a few days http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15637055/ But overall she's an amazing person to work with. I've worked with her in the past countless times, she's helped me - and others - create custom characters and ref sheets, and has always produced quality work (and on time) for her more than reasonable prices. Truly recommended. But I don't want to because she's my secret, lol.

1. Heimdall
2. http://thescreamingnorth.deviantart.com/
3. December to mid-January.
4. I ordered two Furcadia portraits from Heimdall at the beginning of December. One was finished within two weeks of me commissioning them, and the other took a few weeks longer, but Heim was always great at keeping me informed and showing progress shots of how things were coming.

Also, the colours, I wish to eat them, they are so delicious:

1. Name of the person you recommend: WisperOn (AKA Marina)
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.etsy.com/shop/WisperOn
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: November 17th, 2014 - January 6th 2015 (I'll explain the weird stretch of time in the "Details" section).
4. Details: My hetero-lifemate asked me for a yarn bowl for Hanukkah this year. I didn't know what the heck a yarn bowl was (it's a bowl with 1-2 small holes in the side that keeps yarn from tangling or rolling all over the place while you're using it for crafting/knitting/crocheting), but after she sent me a picture I went straight to Etsy. By pure luck, I came across WisperOn's page &, after ordering a yarn bowl from her, I messaged her immediately to ask if she could customize it so that the little kitten on the side of the bowl could look like my friend's ragdoll cat. I sent her a few pictures, she agreed to do the customization & turn around time was incredibly fast (I can't remember exactly how long, but it was probably less than a week). She took it straight from the kiln to shipping, so she couldn't give me any snaps of it & I didn't want to unwrap it from its bubble wrap in case I had to mail it on to my friend. So I left it until I gave it to my friend to see the final results.

The product blew me away. It looked EXACTLY like my friend's cat & it brought her great joy at a time when she was probably at one of her lowest lows. Not only did she send a stellar product at a reasonable price, without additional cost for customization, but her communication has always been friendly, prompt, & really just above & beyond. I would order another item from her again without a second thought. A great artist & an amazing young woman.

(I see a lot of posts here are for drawn or other types of visual art, so I hope posting this review is appropriate!! Let me know if it's not. :) )

1. Name of the person you recommend: Rika

2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/rika

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: a week ago on their pre-order journal for TFF badges they still have slots open check here: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6447093/

4. Details: After allowing me to grab a pre-order slot for one of their Inkwell badges (to match the theme for TFF) before I got paid they must have done the badge before they had my money in their paypal. The day I sent payment they replied with my finished badge.
I won't have a physical copy until the con at the end of the month but I still wanted to throw them up here for having such a quick turn around and being very polite.

Badge I received. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15625101/

1. Zippers
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/zippers/
3. late December - early January
4. I commissioned Zippers for a wiggly icon sometime in December. They fell a little behind, but were always eager to communicate so the slight wait didn't bother me! Regular journal updates, and replies to every note I sent helped reassure me :] I also got the chance to update the character I was getting drawn, so the wait honestly was good for that so I have an up to date icon. I ended up watching the stream when they completed the icon, and Zippers actually did some additional animation instead of just a wiggle as compensation for the wait, which was unexpected but very awesome! Here's a link to it: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15455119/ It's easily my favorite icon to date!

I highly recommend Zippers for their adorable art style and wonderful communication!~ 10/10, would commission again! :3

Re: amazing artists....
Howdy as the post states please keep recommendations as one post per artist. That way folks can find each individual easier.

2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/topolis/
3. Paid 1/13, completed 2/2
4. I can't say enough how adorable these are, very lovely to work with. I did not receive any wip's but I figured it wouldn't hurt with chibi's. For the quality and service the price is well worth it. Will be tipping.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Spix
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/spix or https://inkbunny.net/spix or https://www.weasyl.com/~spixpanda
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Jan 19. 2015
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!!): Spix is always very polite and professional and she approached this commission with a great deal of enthusiasm. Plus she did an amazing job with my piece. I've only had a handful of pictures of this character drawn so far, but she did an outstanding job of capturing him just the way I'd imagined. Plus the level of detail relative to the price range for this commission was astounding.

1. Tatchit
2. FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tatchit/ -- DA: http://tatchit.deviantart.com/
3. Commissioned on January 15th, art received January 24th.
4. When Tatchit opened for commissions they did specify in their journal that no work would take more than 2 months, and I wasn't first in line (4th of 10) so I was prepared for a bit of a wait but WOW was it fast.
I ordered a speedpaint commission of an OC, with just a pet image (from aywas.com of a custom of mine) and a scribbly sketch as refs, with the rest being artist choice and good lord it's perfect http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15563675/
I could not be happier. A+ 10/10

3. December 31st - January 12th
4. I found HoshiKitsunuki when browsing random fursuit bages on dA. I saw she was taking commissions for Victorian style fursuit badges for Further Confusion. She kept me updated with every step and showed me plenty of previews! I'm amazed at how quickly she was able to complete the commission as well!

1. PetiteCat
2. https://www.furaffinity.net/user/petitecat/
3. Commissioned on January 8th, 2015. Received commission on : January 12th, 2015
4. Super easy transaction. She was such a sweety pie and her turnaround time is lightning fast!
Her quality of art is AMAZING, and prices are super reasonable! Maybe even a little under priced for her caliber of skill.

Here is the finished piece : https://www.furaffinity.net/view/15462319/
Feb. 11th, 2015 08:29 am (UTC)
First Contact: Feb 3, Completed Feb 10.
Commission: http://gatekat.deviantart.com/art/Cy-ril-513192188
She was great to work with and very understanding. Despite being a simple commission she was willing to show me sketches and make corrections. I did say up front that it was the first image of a new char, but she went well beyond reasonable expectations into exceptional service. It was a pleasure working with her on bringing him to life.

Finished piece: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15512287/ (NSFW!)
