    • Who: MangutartWhere: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/mangutart/ When: May 19th, 2019. What: I saw their commission price sheet while browsing FA's front page.  The prices were great and the loose, sketchy style was perfect for a commission idea I'd been holding onto for a while.  I asked about a slot on the submission, the sent a Note with the information. They replied very quickly to all messages, sent a WIP, asked clarifying questions--just overall it was clear they were very focused on the commission and wanting it to turn out well. I am extremely happy with the resulting art and the experience overall.  I'll definitely be back to them in the future for more art! Finished SFW commission below.
    • Artist: Slurku Where: https://twitter.com/Slurku When: April 29 - May 8   I commissioned Slurku via Twitter on the 29th of April, 2019 for a Screentoned Icon of my bear character. I paid promptly after they contacted me via Telegram and was put onto their Trello right after. I only had to wait around a week until Slurku started to work on my Icon. I was shown Sketch and Coloring WIPs, requested some tiny changes and they were really nice to fix them! The day after that, I was presented the finished product and I couldn't be happier to have the perfect new icon now! Slurku was incredible to work with, super nice and quick service. If you like her style, I'd definetly recommend Slurku to draw your character!    
    • Who: puppisama Where: https://www.deviantart.com/puppisama  What: I posted on the deviantArt forums looking to get a reference sheet done for an anthro feline character of mine, asking prospective artists to leave art examples and prices in the replies.  puppisama was one of the artists who replied.  I liked their style and the price was within my budget, so I contacted them to discuss further details.  I provided them with previous art of the character to work from, showing their markings and details.   They provided several WIPs [sketch, lines, a couple of colored WIPs] and completed requested changes very quickly [removing paw pads from hands once and correcting the spelling of the character's name on the finished ref].  It was a really good experience and I'm extremely happy with the finished art! SFW reference below.
    • I purchased an icon from Dewdlepies on 01.30.19, and received the finished item the next day.  He was swift, showed me progress reports throughout the day, and delivered an amazing icon.  I can't recommend him enough to get work done.
    • I commissioned OgnevkaFenella (https://ognevkafenella.artstation.com/) on 04.21.19 for a portrait commission and a full color two character commission.  She was pleasant and prompt to work with, and I received my finished commissions today, 04.29.19. Her work is absolutely lovely, and her turn around time is lightning fast.  I highly recommend her.

      Archiving has been completed thanks to @Alex Wright finding a nice work around to get the bewares on the site.  The archive is currently hidden until tagging and deletion of items that wouldn't meet today's standards are completed.
      The current archives will also have to be moved (by hand) to the old archives.

      I am dumb and have forgotten where to ask for a new positive review thread.  I looked through all kinds of forum sections but can't find the request post again...
