January 2018 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 to artists!

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 (please also put this in the subject of your comment):
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.

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person:
November 2017-December 2017

4. Details: I pre-ordered a really cute enamel pin that SBN was offering back in November. It arrived a little after Christmas (Artist lives in CA, I'm in US). Throughout the transaction the artist was in contact with me and asked for my preferences in packaging. The pin is really heavy duty and has two spikes to help hold it in place. I'm currently keeping it on a coat. The artist also sent a handwritten thank you card as this was their first attempt at pins.
You can see the pins offered here, I have the seal one:

(Hopefully it's ok to reply to comments on this post type!)

Oh gosh, thank you so much! That seriously means a lot and I really didn't expect a review of my pins here.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Nightrizer on DA
2. Link to person's website or art page: https://nightrizer.deviantart.com/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: There was three days between transaction and delivery of final product (28th Dec. - 31st Dec.)
4. Details: I commissioned this artist for a bust scene involving my two characters in a typical sibling moment of one bothering the other. I also requested a city setting, along with a specific time of day. These were details the artist specifically requested and I found this was a very good way for them to give their customers exactly what they wanted.

From beginning to end, they were professional and extremely easy to work with. Their communication was spot on. They began by delivering a sketch concept before initial payment, which I was extremely happy with. An invoice was then promptly sent. A few days after payment, they showed me a second WIP before proceeding with the shading and finalising the background. Thus, they gave me plenty of opportunity to request changes or point out any issues if need be. The final product went above and beyond my expectations, the artist captured the characters perfectly and I feel they worked extremely hard to deliver a wonderful piece that very much suited my initial request.

Final piece is here: https://nightrizer.deviantart.com/art/Dali-and-Mozart-723063829

I've been meaning to commission this artist for a while due to their vast amount of talent but their calm demeanour and overall professionalism made working with them feel like an absolute pleasure and honour. I will certainly be back to commission them for more things in the future.

(edit: few edits for wording here and there)

3. I commissioned them January 2nd, and got the art January 3rd!
4. A friend of mine retweeted about this artist's "Mid-Weeklies" commissions and really liked her style. I missed out them the first time I saw them in December, so I was really happy to nab two of the slots for the first week in January. She worked really fast, it came out really well, and she fixed the one problem (lacking glasses) really quickly. She may be the most prompt artist I've ever commissioned.
I highly recommend her!

I'm recommending him for good, quick service and being great to work with when I was not nearly as organized as I like. He did a great job with taking limited details (lots of artistic freedom), an Earth alt mode and converting it all into a Cybertronian I'm very pleased with.

4. Details: Zoey is very friendly and easy to work with, and in spite of considerable personal upheaval she was always very fast with getting in touch and sending me updates. She made the commission process very pleasant and she produced an absolutely gorgeous piece of art for me, which captured my idea perfectly. This was a special commission which involved considerable alteration of a character, namely drawing her notably younger than the references provided, and omitting certain details from her standard reference, but Zoey did a fantastic job with everything.

2. Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/nuclerfurcreations/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Around June of last Year.
4. Details : I bought a partial suit (which then I upgraded to a halfsuit later last year again with this artist again). She met the deadline, and kept me updated with progress of my fursuit. I had no trouble with comunication and her work quality is amazing!
I love my fursuit and would definitely recommend her again and again!
