1. CoyotePrince, a SFW only artist

3. July-August [more detail to follow]
4. I commissioned CoyotePrince once before, last Halloween, and was very impressed with their turnaround time and communication abilities. This time was no different!

Jul 1st - Contacted them for a quote for two connecting icons and was put on a waiting list, so I started saving up!
Aug 3rd - I was contacted and asked if I was still interested in a commission. I said yes, but I still needed to finish up a small reference for my boyfriend's character. They said no problem and put me in the queue, in the "on hold" section. [They have a Trello that they update constantly so it's really easy to see where they are in the queue and how quickly things are moving.]
Aug 4th - I was invoiced and paid the same day.
Aug 6th - I finished the reference and sent it over. I was contacted the next day to inform me they do not work weekends [which I was already aware of, so I wasn't even expecting a reply until the following Monday!] I was also moved to the front of the Trello queue at this time.
Aug 8th [Monday] - Sketches were complete! I asked for a minor change.
Aug 9th - I was shown the inks and flat colors. I asked for a minor color change [which may not have been necessary since they do paintovers and may have been planning to add what I asked for near the end of the process].
Aug 10th - I was delivered the finished icons.

I had asked for a foggy/smokey atmosphere and for the icons to connect, but to also be able to be used separately since I wanted to use them on sites where the connection wouldn't be apparent. I didn't want like, half a heart on my icon or something. Otherwise, I gave them free reign on expression and such and they made sure to include everything I asked for while also adding their own flair.

My icons are the top two: https://www.furaffinity.net/view/20813454/

The icons at the end were perfect and only took 3 days from the start of the sketch to the finished product [I have no doubt they would have been done faster if they hadn't had had to wait for my responses]. All other communications went smoothly and quickly as well, I don't think I ever waited more than a day for a response, even during their days off.
I was shown every stage of the process, they were very amenable to making changes, and always very polite and professional. They make sure to keep their commissioners updated and happy.

TL;DR: Highly recommended. I literally have nothing bad to say about this artist or their process.

Just to add as a fun detail, this artist draws and paints digitally using a mouse. They do not use a tablet. They even posted an FYI/semi-tutorial on their drawing process which I found really interesting!
They're also very skilled at sculpting and are working on starting a fragrance/body products business with their artwork on labels, etc. They're even tossing around the idea of doing custom scented badges and stuff like that, so if you're not looking for someone to commission for digital art, but like watching people who are into creating more physical items, this is a good person to watch. :) They really deserve more exposure.
