May 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!

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. March 2015 - April 2015
4. I approached Shagpoke early March about a custom hoodie basted off of Jace Beleren from MTG. Right off the bat Shagpoke was prompt and communication was lightning fast. She worked with the rather inconsistent official art of the character, and came up with a design that looked stunning.

I received my hoodie early April and words doesn't quite express how lovely it is.

It's comfortable, it fits wonderfully, and so far it's been recognized a ton of times while I've worn it outside. The craftsmanship is top notch, and there are a lot of lovely little details that simple pictures can't show.

I HIGHLY recommend Shagpoke whenever she opens.

It only took maybe a week or a little over.
Angler's art is unique, the prices are really great, and her turnaround and communication is super fast.
I ordered a couple shaded bust from her. She sent me all the WIPs I requested and made changes I asked her to make. The bust came out amazing.

3. I commissioned her a couple days ago and it was done the same day in-stream.
4. The piece turned out absolutely adorable, and she was very receptive to feedback during the stream. I've worked with Rikko in the past and she is very polite and professional while also being fun to talk to and work with.

She hasn't uploaded it yet herself or I'd link there, but here's the piece: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/16437032/

I'd recommend her to anyone! :D

4. Details: I've seen her artwork on Twitter and she has a super cute style. When she opened for badge commissions, I requested a slot. I paid, then went to bed for the night. When I got up, the badge was completed and uploaded! The quality is so lovely, it wasn't rushed at all and all the markings are perfect. I'm still waiting on it to be printed, laminated, and shipped but I'm so happy with the digital image! Here it is: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/16340052/

4. Bastek announced that they were taking some $35 icons so I jumped at the chance. She streamed it just a short while later that evening and was so polite and friendly in chat. It turned out absolutely beautiful and I really couldn't be happier! The care she puts into her work really shows.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Dar/Darwin
2. Link to person's website or art page: Eveningascent.tumblr.com or spinturnixx.deviantart.com
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: commission post went up on March 24th I think, got my art this week.
4. Details: I love Dar's art and I'd been wanting a ref sheet from him for a while but I had to save up some first. A friend of his went through some troubles and he uploaded a slightly discounted commission post so I jumped on it! Dar is lovely to work with, always keeps you updated and is always willing to work with whatever odd character you throw at him-the more wings the better!

4. I always have to recommend this artist. She is a great artist and person. This is my third commission from her and once again I am beyond thrilled. Got to sit in on the stream for this one, as I did for the other two. Great experience all around!

4. I commissioned her somewhere in early March. She's an awesome artist, and overall seems very understanding! She lets her commissioners know when she's going to start commissions and when she will approximately finish (with additional updates). The most important part for me that was awesome was she was quick to reply and updated her watchers/commissioners.

3. BABSCon 2015 (early April)
4. I saw that Onna was on the vendor list for BABS and immediately decided to commission her for a more up-to-date badge of my ponysona, Duster. The end result is now one of my favorite badges of her thus far. Easy transaction, super sweet, and great work! Definitely gonna commission her again if we cross paths.

1. Ink It Labs
2. http://www.inkitlabs.com/
3. Multiple times
4. I've been using them many times, and generally me and my friends have considered their charms to be the best quality we've seen, especially the double sided ones, and they have a great customer support! (Their site's image upload isn't always redirected after payment though, so I had to ask about that)

1. Name of the person you recommend: MistressAdaira
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/mistressadaira
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: April 6, 2015 - April 25, 2015
4. Details: I commissioned MistressAdaira for a reference sheet of one of my characters, and asked her to include some new details that I wanted to add to the character as well. These were all minor changes, but meant that she had to work partly off of just a description. She did a gorgeous job with my character and captured the new look I wanted for them perfectly. Plus she was very polite and professional throughout, and she sent multiple WIPs along the way. I cannot recommend her enough.

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Roughly Mar 21, 2015 - April 30, 2015
4. Details: I commissioned PuddingPaw for a picture that was to be shared by myself and a friend of mine. She was very polite and professional throughout the commission process, and she posted several WIPs along the way so that both my friend and I could see them. She put an incredible amount of time and effort into the piece, and she really did an amazing job with it.

3. April 18 - April 19
4. After I got into contact with him on April 18th I think around 10 pmish, we discussed the details of my icon. After I told him what I want, I payed him. He then said my icon would be no later than April 22. So I go to bed for the night. After I wake up the next day, I see a note from him with a link to my pic. I loved it and posted it immediately. I would totally recommend this artist.

It's been a while since I commissioned her the last time, dunno if that is okay here, but when I saw this thread, I immediatly had to think of her.

1. Mosa

3. July 8th 2014, August 2nd 2014 and November 17th 2014
4. It's been a while since I commissioned her, but it was always pleasant. It was done fast, in a single week, I could even say when exactly, and it always looked great. You can watch in a livestream if you want to get details fixed right then and there. Also, there's always a checklist when I commission something with my characters. My main one is a mix between leopard and gargoyle, but most artist more or less think "leopard with wings" and get some details wrong through that. Never happened with mosa, I was surprised how much she got right without me even mentioning it. All in all, it was always pleasant and the price is also rather cheap for the quality you get.

3. Mid-March to Mid-May 2015
4. I commissioned a pair of handpaws and feetpaws from Narrow in March, asking for a May completion, as I have a con soon. They were very good with communication, made everything I needed to do on my end clear and was very friendly and professional!

They kept me updated when I prompted via note, and got the work done on time and to a high standard. I am very pleased with the results and would defiantly recommend them to anyone!
