Recommended Commission-Artists!

Thu May 14, 2015, 1:27 PM
Updated per January 19th 2017!

I saw some people share their positive work experiences, and decided to make a list of all the people I commissioned so far who I enjoyed working with! :love: I made this for all of my watchers, so that if you need someone to commission, you have some information at hand! :la:

This list is in alphabetical order, contains both commissioners and adopt artists, and is being updated constantly ;D

Main Type: Character illustrations
Medium: Digital artwork
Price Range: $20+
Purchased: 2 commisisons
Commissions- march by Avionetca Vixenkiba- Therice by Avionetca
Avionetca works fast and is very easy and kind to work with. Her character illustrations look like they come right out of a fantasy story and are always lovely and detailed <3 She's closing her commissions now due to a busy time, but I can't wait to commission her again in the future!

:icondeskleaves: Deskleaves 
Info: deskleaves.deviantart.com/gall…
Main Type: Humanoid characters and creatures
Medium: Digital artwork
Price Range: $15+
Purchased: 5 adopts and countless commissions
Gerard Icon by Deskleaves Bullock-Lammer family portrait by Deskleaves 3 years of hell by Deskleaves
Deskleaves is one of my favourite commissioners on DA and I really enjoyed working with him all the time. He leaves you perfectly up-to-date on how much progress is being made with your commission, streams his drawing sessions, and I just simply really love his art. Inspires me all the time! HIGHLY recommendable!


:icondidthesqd: DidTheSqd 
Info: (CLOSED) Commissions - Digital, Pixel, Animation
Main Type: Scenery pixels and (mainly) feral pixels (animated)
Medium: Pixel artwork
Price Range: $10+
Purchased: 1 scenery background
the vornwood by DidTheSqd
DidTheSqd is one of the most amazing pixel artists I've met on DA; their scenery artwork is magical and stunning, really, and they turned my area of Vornwood in a beautiful pixel animation! They work very fast as well.


:iconembassyoftime: EmbassyOfTime 
Info: Commissions
Main Type:
All sorts of stories
Medium: Literature
Price Range: $5 per 1000 words
Purchased: One short story
The trinket"It was owned by a warrior," the girl said, turning the dirty trinket in her hand, wiping off the muck that had stuck to it. "She wore it in her hair, like this..." With clumsy hands, she pulled a lock of hair through the gap in the old metal piece, wincing uncomfortably as she inadvertently tugged too hard on several strands. With careful fingers, the boy helped her manage it. He was a bit surprised that she let him. Girls around this place were typically shy, their traditions keeping the genders apart for a great part of their lives.
He then sat back against the large log by the fire. It was still light out, barely, but the heat made for a good rest, and there was plenty of wood to burn. The locals had taken to him nicely, welcoming him in and letting him walk about freely, all for a few songs and stories he could entertain them with. "So a warrior gave this to you?" he asked.
There was the oddest look of irritation on the girl's face, as if she had expected him to look ahead in her

This new Deviant turned out to be a really wonderful writer, a pearl really! He often offers free stories based on people's art on the forums, which I think is super generous, and all his writings are full with creativity and well researched. I'm certainly commissioning more!
