August Positive Reviews

It's August!

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. May - June 2015 (belated recommendation, sorry! haven't been on LJ in years)
4. My boyfriend and I both commissioned a custom affirmation badge from her at Biggest Little Furcon this year. Paid there, emailed when I got home. Within a few days she had an account for me and my boyfriend with her super-slick commission system. So friendly (in person and online!), easy to work with, and prompt. Nice print quality on the badge itself when it got here, well laminated. :) This is the badge: http://i.imgur.com/ShmGnb6.png

1. Name of the person you recommend: Mumble
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mumbledork / mumblesmonsters.tumblr.com
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Not sure exactly, about halfway through last month- recent?
4. Details: I'd noticed on Mumble's tumblr that they're interested in sweet lolita and I had a pair of socks that I knew wouldn't fit me so I asked if they wanted to trade them for a background because they have adorable stuff and I'd been thinking of getting one from them for a while. Their turnaround was super fast and they ended up drawing a full-body of Casimir too and we called shipping cost more than covered.
(Will update when they can upload the images to their blog/FA!)

I got a lovely beautiful tail from Shagpoke!

1. Shagpoke
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/shagpoke
3. I... can't quite remember when I sent the downpayment to secure my slot, but as soon as I sent a follow up payment they had a RIDICULOUSLY fast turn around. They even finished it before I sent them the final payment.
4. I love the tail so much, it's so fluid and bouncy and a lot lighter than I expected! (I was worried I'd end up having to pack it in a whole separate bag because it's huge, but it compresses really well and weighs like NOTHING.)

I missed posting these, because life, so I'm going to do it now!

1. Name of the person you recommend: SpartaDog
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/~spartadog | http://www.furaffinity.net/user/spartadog/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: May 11-12, 2015
4. Details:
Sparta was offering sketches, and I wanted to get one for my partner and me. I sent a message, asking if the subject matter was okay, Sparta said it was, so we got things worked out, I sent refs, and very, very quickly for a BEAUTIFUL sketch. Less than 24 hours!

BattleFerrets (1/2)
1. Name of the person you recommend: BattleFerrets
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/~battleferrets | http://www.furaffinity.net/user/battleferrets
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Early April 2014 (Like I said, I'm behind...)
4. Details: BattleFerrets was offering a commission in exchange for buying their partner the game Starbound on Steam. I offered, as I had some spare money at the time, and sent the game over. I sent my commission details (one of my male characters) and very soon had the art! I can't find my commission detail emails, so it may have been mostly via notes or Tumblr, but turn-around time was more than acceptable. The commission was for my character, Adian, who I had only really previously sketched and had started putting together his avatar in Second Life. I love how he was portrayed. (Semi-NSFW? He's got his pants open, being a tease, but nothing showing: https://www.weasyl.com/submission/570000/fine-estate)

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: May 2014
4. Details: I saw an adoptable egg I liked, and it was a "pick your species type" of egg. I sent my payment, and the description, and, again, very soon had a beautiful piece of art with a character who I need to get to writing. I always like to see artists renditions of unicorn/wolf mixes, and I was super happy with the results here.

3. start of June to end of June, from discussion to me receiving the box
4. I had been thinking of getting some cherry blossoms and honduran bats drawn together, traditional or so, asked around facebook for some who could do it but didn't find something id fancy, then this person posts new boxes on their FA and i see them on my inbox, having watched them months prior cause of cool tiger box.
Send them a note asking if it would be possible to have certain sized box with illustration of honduran bats, they showed me their box size options and while later contacted me with the done sketch, after which i proceeded to pay after seeing it, week--2 weeks later i get pictures of the painted box, and it took just few days to ship!
Awesome box, great price and fast and good communication ^^

3. Contacted them on 7/30, received art 7/31st
4. This artist had offered headshots of dinosaur characters in the past but when I first followed them they were closed. They recently opened for more slots and was excited to grab one, and needless to say I was glad that I did. They were very professional in their notes and were a pleasure to work with, would highly recommend as they have good customer service and some great stuff. :)

3. Commissioned him about a month ago, got the art in the mail last week.
4. He was just easy to work with. I wanted a portrait of my pony changeling OC, which is a bit of a tricky character to do in real media, as she's all black. It was a pay-what-you-want commission, and I sent $35 and asked for an inked sketch, but he decided to go ahead and color it, which really delighted me! (I don't think that's usual or expected, we've done a lot of business both ways over the years, so I suspect it was a small extra for a return customer.) But anyhow, he's super easy to deal with, does lovely work, and is also willing to work with weird fetishes if you're into that, though my piece was perfectly vanilla and G-rated. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/16926902/

3. End of July, turn around was two days.
4. I snagged a colored sketch slot via twitter from this artist, transaction was super quick, plus artist used invoices (which I love!). Artwork was fantastic and turn around was about two days from payment.

1. Diaszoom
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/diaszoom/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: from July 13th to July 20th
4. Diaszoom is responsible for those adorable happy flailing icons you might've seen on Furaffinity.

I found their commission journal and wanted to know when they would re open and they even suggested reminding me when they did. So I snagged two for me and my partner.

I was amazed at their communication, always showing WIPs, even color swatches for approval. Our characters are not simple, mine has scales and his has lots of spots but nevertheless Diaszoom did not simplify or change the designs at all and really worked super hard to get all the details right. All the time being super polite and nice despite not being native speakers.

When they completed the icons it wasn't just the one, but a whole bunch with different background colors to chose from! I recommend them to everyone because it was a wonderful experience.

2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/teil
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Jul 26 - Jul 27, 2015
4. Details: Teil was very courteous and professional, and she did a fantastic job on my commission and bringing my character to life. She put in far more detail than I had expected, and she captured what I had in mind almost exactly.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Candiipup
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/candiipup/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Jul 15 - Jul 30, 2015
4. Details: Candiipup did an all around amazing job for me. They were prompt and professional in their communication, and their turnaround was incredibly fast, even including a WiP to check for corrections. The finished piece is beautifully done and really captured my idea very well. I have commissioned this artist before and I can definitely recommend them!

1. Name of the person you recommend: Zoey Hoshi Studios (ZoeyHoshi)
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.weasyl.com/profile/zoeyhoshi
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Received/paid invoice on 7/26, received finished picture 3 days later.
4. Details: Full disclosure, Zoey is my girlfriend. Therefore, I may be a bit of a biased source when it comes to how nice she was to me during the transaction. However! I'm pretty sure that the "Received/paid invoice on 7/26, received finished picture 3 days later" part speaks for itself no matter who I am. Her turnaround is astonishingly quick and her art is really good. And she really is a sweetheart. ♥

1. Pachabel
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/pachabel
3. My last one was delivered 12 days ago and I commissioned her maybe 2 days before.
4. Pachabel is an amazingly kind and talented artist and she have always been promt with her artwork. If you wishes she can stream it, and she have amazing customer service. I got this piece now; http://www.furaffinity.net/view/17178897/ But have commissioned her multiple times (6) before and it was always been equally amazing how easy she to work with each time. So A++ artist

1. Starrypoke

2. http://www.starrypoke.deviantart.com

3. The commission was arranged and paid for on July 18th, then received on August 7th.

4. She's such a nice and pleasant person to work with! She finishes her commissions quickly and produces incredible quality. This commission was for a journal doll and I was impressed that she was able to do my character so accurately in pixels. I've also commissioned her for two icons in the past, both of which were fantastic.

Here's the finished commission. http://fav.me/d94iig8

2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mistressadaira
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: July 28 - August 8th, 2015
4. Details: MistressAdaira is courteous, professional and always an absolute joy to commission. She was very enthusiastic about the commission, and she was easy to get hold of and prompt to reply throughout the commission process. What's more, she did an amazing job with both of my characters, working on little more than a previous uncolored sketch and some description, and she produced an absolutely gorgeous piece of art. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

4.Kittiara had a pre AC special on her blue pencil sketches, I couldn’t pass up the chance to nab one. These were artistic freedom, but with a prompt or mood suggestion. She emailed me back saying she hope to update me soon. A little over a month later the art was in my email inbox. I couldn’t be happier, with the result! She really captured the prompt and character well! Very professional and nice!
