February 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.

Commissioner - Xellandria
1. Name of the person you recommend: Xellandria
2. Link to person's website or art page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/xella | https://xella.deviantart.com/
3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Jan 19 - Feb 2, 2018
4. Details: tl;dr: I've known Xella for almost 20 years, but we've really never commissioned each other. I mentioned an idea for one of her characters that I had on my list, she liked it, and officially set up a commission about a month after I mentioned it. I was going to draw it anyway, but it got moved up the list as a paid piece. Normally, humanoids aren't on my "will draw" list, and she was willing to change the commission subject if I wasn't comfortable with it. She paid promptly, with an additional tip on top, and really loves the piece.

1. Wintersoul/Wintersoulstudios
2. http://www.furaffinity.net/user/wintersoul/ http://www.wintersoulstudios.com/
3. 29.09.17 until 09.01.18
4. I commissioned a custom pendant from Wintersoul in the last round they opened before winter and communication with this artist has been outstanding. They had an unexpected delay and immediately sent an email letting me know what was going on. Updates came in regularly and their approach is very professional. The pendant was packaged safely and made it through customs without any troubles or damages.

My pendant has not yet been posted on their page so I can't share it, but if you look through their gallery you will see the high quality pieces they create!

Name of the person you recommend: SolarGem
Link to person's website or art page: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/solargem/
Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: Most of January 2018.
Details: I saw a journal on January 17th, 2018 advertising that they were open for $5 bouncy pixel-style icons. I ordered a feral one of my character Naya. Paid and was listed in the work queue.

On January 30th, 2018 I received a Note with the finished icon delivered.

Artist was quick and professional. They had some computer issues midway through the month, but I'm impressed that they still got the icon done so quickly. I was more than willing to/expecting a longer wait time, so the fast delivery was a great surprise :)

Definitely going back in the future for more pixel icons from them.

1. Name of the person you recommend: Tlmothy

2. Link to person's website or art page: Tlmothy.deviantart.com

3. Approximate time period of when you did business with this person: late January

4. Details: I've been Tlmothy's good friend for a couple of years now, and I've gotten art from him before via an art trade which also went spectacularly. So, seeing as he opened some cheap commissions and I had some points laying around, I decided to purchase a pixel doll from the guy on January 22. Despite there being a small misunderstanding in my part while ordering due to the format of his commission journal, he was extremely chill and willing which made the process all the more satisfying. Two days later, he put it up, and needless to say I'm extremely satisfied with how it came out!! His unique style combined with subtle animations made it so worth the buy; it's super cute!! I highly recommend his commissions to anyone who's looking for unique art with a quick turnaround time and friendly environment.

Artist - spidermilkshake

Feb 24th-March 4th

Good turnaround for a full color+background image, a wonderful job with limited details on setting or character. They were a good experience when I needed one badly and I'm still chuffed about the art. They captured what I wanted so perfectly.
