-1 - Whilce Portacio - I've had one of the RARE bad experiences with Whilce - basically, he gave my commission away at a convention - just as I arrived at his table to pay for it.

+1 Frank Quitely Could not meet a nicer person and it's a shame he does not do more cons

+1 Fred Hembeck Delightful e-mails and was kind enough to give me a discount on my 3 cover redos

+1 Steve Rude Eventually decided to do my Nightwing commish just as I decided that I wanted a rocketeer instead(only does characters he likes). Always a pleasure dealing with him and his wife. Got a brilliant Nexus charcoal sketch chucked in for $50 when buying comics

+1 Ethan Van Sciver did a brilliant inked Impulse sketch for nothing when I sent some comics off to be signed. Bought my first page from him for virtually nothing

+1 Mick Gray Great guy. really friendly. Gave me a free page of art from Promethea #2 just for assembling artwork from Promethea #12

+1 J.H. Williams III Another great guy who I bought artwork from along with Mick

+1 Adam Hughes Still new to the game, I was foolish to pass an offer of $45(or thereabouts) for a full body sketch, but he was kind enough to do me a face sketch for free

+1 Joe Quesada Pre Marvel EIC, Joe Q did a cool NW sketch but did not know what nightwing looked like!!!!

+1 Marcelo Frusin Through a friend, I was lucky enough to get a free sketch of Hellblazer that to this day remains one of my faves

+1 Dave Dorman A great person. Always has plenty of time for his fans

+1 Randy Bowen Was kind enough not to just sign my comics and Madman trading card that I sent to him, but to also do a sketch on the back of the card

-1 Joe Madureira Was the only artist at the one time I went to Megacon who refused to do a sketch for me and just continued talking to Tim Townsend and Brandon Peterson

+1 Dick Giordano has done a couple of pieces for me and both times he turned them around in 2-3 weeks. Very easy to deal with and I was pleased with the results.

+ 1 Chris Stevens - quick to reply and very fast, good pricing for the quality of work.

+ 1 Paul Green - kept me updated and emailed me pretty much every little change to make sure I was happy. Took about 3 weeks from start to finish, price is ok considering he works in GBP.

+1 Alex Sinclair - 5 con pieces and multiple personal ones and never an issue. GReat work from water colors to pencil's. very talented artist and a great guy to deal with.

+1 Norman Lee great inker and very good artist as well. 3 pieces so far and will get more from him for sure.

+1 Sean Chen - could not finish at the heroes con but got it done afterward and was just stunned at the detailing. Norman inked this one.

+1 Eric Powell - goon artist - great guy and did a superb venom sketch for me when we where just BS at NYCC

+1 Chris McJunkin - cool new artist. Meet at Heroes this past year. have already gotten a few pieces. never late. listens and his packaging for shipping is just nuts.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

+1 Cully Hamner - Great guy. Totally professional. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

+1 Art Baltazar - Not the fastest ever, but great communication and very humble. Plus, it was pretty inexpensive, so I wasn't too worried.

+1 John Byrne- From start to finish, one of the most professional commissioning experiences ever. Warden also packs the art like Fort Knox.

+1 Whilce Portacio- Incredibly nice to deal with, and art delivered on time. Again, one of the best commissioning experiences I've had.

+1 David Finch- The piece takes a while to get, but they tell you that up front, so you go into it knowing the wait will be a while. The result is always worth it.

+1 Pat Broderick- One of the nicest artists I've dealt with. No rep. No fuss. He really aims to please.

+1 Scott Kolins- Amazing artist, fast as hell. Highly recommended

Fantastic commission experience!
Communicates quickly, openly & friendly, works astoundingly fast, price is right & the finished product is beautiful.
Sent me a jpeg of a finished 2-character piece 3 days after I first contacted him!
Hope to acquire more pieces from him.
Couldn't recommend him more.
