Not sure if things are still the same as they were, but I'd hope you'd have a good experience like I did
That variant looks fantastic, thanks for the response.

Sorry for the late reply, thought this thread was dead and buried!

Yes I worked with him directly. At this point he is ignoring any attempts of contact including through his instagram.
I don't trust working with him even through a rep to be honest, fool me once and all.

Since this thread seems to finally have some new posts in it, a buyer beware warning;

-1 Brian Churilla - Commissioned him 4 or 5 months ago to his promise that the art would be done in a few weeks. After the first month of being late I contact him again to (what I assume at this point was a lie) him saying its almost done and he would send a scan (never got the scan). Months then go by with zero contact despite multiple emails, finally put a message requesting contact on one of his instagram posts, which he then deleted. After another (more angry) instagram comment he finally emails me and informs me of difficult times. I get it, but at which point was I, a paying customer, to be informed? 4 months? 5 months? Ever? I request a refund. Been trying to get a refund for about a month, he says he was laid off by Dark Horse for missing deadlines and "is trying" to refund me. Avoid.

+1 Mitch Ballard. Check out my thread for pencils and inks. Great communication, timely completion, secure shipping. Over and above expectations, and ultra reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Brian Churilla update: Still no refund, communication is like pulling teeth. I have even offered alternatives to a refund to wrap this debacle up; Rather than an inked pen & paper commission like originally I paid for, a quick-and-dirty digital commission instead. No reply to the suggestion. Avoid this guy, protect yourselves.

On a similar note
- 1 Roger Bonet Martinez. Commissioned him a number of months ago, progress on the commission just slowed to a halt, always putting other projects before mine despite accepting payment upfront (dear artists, stop doing that.) and now its basically radio silence, requested a refund, no reply. Pretty sure I'm boned. Avoid.

+ 1 Henri Reculé. Good, prompt communication. Open to concept and provided a number of roughs to choose from. Delivered the art within a few weeks (digital commission). Only downside was he is based in Europe so the exchange rate stung, but a good experience in a string of bad ones lately.
