May Positive Reviews

Hello, today is May! Though we are slightly late.

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. Early April
4. Cubi was looking to do some badge experiments so I commissioned them for one! What I was given went so above and beyond my expectations I really couldn't be happier <333

Beyond that, when I communicated that I wanted to put the art on a shirt for myself, they once again surprised me by making an entirely separate edit, specifically for me to print!

Everything was complete within about a week

http://cubiart.tumblr.com/post/142825814140/badgebust-2-for-cockatriceking Entirely SFW!

Basically I would commission them again in a heartbeat!

1. Name of the person you recommend: Sage-Tanuki
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sage-tanuki
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: I approached her for the first batch of stickers on April 10 and they were finished on April 14. I don't have the exact timestamps for the second batch off the top of my head because those were negotiated over IM, but the turnaround time was very similar. A few days, definitely less than a week.
4. Details: I commissioned Sage-Tanuki for a big pack of Telegram stickers, which we ended up splitting into two slightly smaller batches just because it was such a big project. (I wanted 25 stickers total, but honestly, by the time I had put together enough pose descriptions and references images and such for the first 15, even I was like... you know what, let's just start with these and I'll get you the rest later. :P) She was an absolute pleasure to work with, super friendly and positive and genuinely seemed to enjoy working with me and my character. The stickers she did for me are adorable. Like, really, really adorable. Her prices are obscenely low, too. Seriously, please tip big if you commission her; I think she undercharges. I mean just look at those stickers eeeeee, she easily could have charged twice that and it still would have been worth it for how cute they are.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Loverofscythe (again!)
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/loverofscythe/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Late April
4. Details: Scythe has delivered yet another fantastic charm! Last time it was slightly damaged, but this time it was perfect!
I accidentally forgot to mention what color bell I wanted, and they offered to send me another one for free if I were to purchase another charm (which I definitely do). They didn't have to offer another bell since it was my mistake, and I'm really really glad they gave me this opportunity <3

4. I ordered a commission from their pin-up sale and received it within a few weeks. The artist was very friendly and approachable and went to great lengths to ensure that the character's complicated design was as correct as possible and she was depicted accurately. I was updated regularly on the progress of the commission, as well. Definitely one of the best artists I've worked with in a long time!

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: April 30th - May 7th
4. Details: I inquired about a character design after seeing their griffon illustrations, they offered to make me some concepts. They sent me a sketch or two every day until I found a concept I loved. Extremely friendly and very helpful, lots of creativity in their work. They replied to my notes almost instantaneously each time! I found their prices very low for what they offered, please consider tipping them if you do commission them. Lovely service.

1. Name of the person you recommend: AkitaMonster.
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/akitamonster
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: I sent the note with details/sent payment on April 17'th and received the art on April 30'th.
I've loved Akita's art and followed their art for ages; every time I've commissioned them, they've gone above and beyond to make sure I got my money's worth. They're incredibly talented, polite/a total sweetheart, thorough/very good at remembering details and have a really fast turnaround rate for the quality of work that they produce. I honestly can't wait to commission them again.

4. They are a great self-taught artist who really likes to make sure the buyer is getting what they want, and who is super great to work with. They regularly stream, are patient with details and correcting things, and they have a great deal bin where they offers deals to help people get art for cheaper and you replace the deal you take with one of your choosing. Overall just a great artist with a great attitude who is fun to work with!

4) Very good artist and nice person in general. Keeps her promises and keeps you updated (unlike another artist I'm having issues with who is 9 months overdue and won't even answer me). Ordered an electronic con badge at the con, she finished it within a few weeks.

1. Name of the person you recommend: mythical._.wolf on Instagram
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.instagram.com/mythical._.wolf/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Commission details worked out Friday, May 27th and Saturday, May 28th. Commission finished Tuesday, May 31st. Incredibly fast turn-around time! :D
4. Details: I commissioned a Pay What You Want badge of one of my WoW characters from Mythical Wolf. She's a beginner artist, but she puts a ton of effort and detail into her pieces, and her style is super cute (which are the two big things I look for when I commission art). I've done a couple of trades with her in the past as well, she's been great to work with every time. Mythical is wonderful to work with, and I plan to commission her in the future!
