i think this should go into the art marketplace section
Hello welcome to my thread. I am sure there are some similar threads out there but I'd like to help great artists find work. I will personally add artists I've commissioned to this convenient list as well as allow others to post and recommend artists they have worked with as well. I will provide a form so that it makes it easier to add your favorite artist. If you are an artist who would like to be added to this list, please see the rules for applying down below. If you are an artist who would like to change your status on this list, update your commissions link, or be removed simply comment or message me. Quick note on the turn around time category before you continue, it is based off of the experience of those who commissioned them. Artists are people too. Things do happen and it could be a completely different experience. Other than that, everyone is welcome to stay and chat in this thread. Feel free to talk to each other about your experiences. I may create a 'bad' list later, but I personally haven't had many negative experiences with artists here on TH yet.

Any Comments: (That You'd Like People To Know About The Artist)
What if we're an artist wanting to get our name on the list, but our art is not in the high quality range? Like my art is decent, but not too spectacular. :0
I suppose I could add another section to the list and name it something like "Medium Quality" or "Practicing Artists" I wouldn't want to offend artists though so the name would have to be tasteful.
If I may a give a suggestion, I would like to know what they prefer to draw in these recommendations. I am a furry and so most of my ocs reflect that, so I would wanna know if the artist is comfortable drawing anthros.
No offense, but, i don't think calling the list the "HQ artist recommendations" is going to sit well with people. A lot of people are probably gonna think they're not good enough to submit themselves on the list and i personally think that you should probably rename the title to something like "The artist recommendation list" for good measure.
Sorry if this comes off as rude, i'm just stating my opinion!
Quick Edit: I dont find your comment rude. I just see it as criticism.
I understand your point, but I meant it for actual HQ artists. I said I'm open to adding another section for artists of other skill level, but it's supposed to be so you can find HQ services. I'm not sure how that offends people to be honest. The reason I dont want to add another section right away though is because I dont want to mislabel or title that as something that comes off as derogatory. (See previous commenter.) If I included all artists it would be more of a directory than a recommendations list.
Actually I'm starting to lean more towards renaming it the more I think about it. I really dont want to have to segragate artists into categories. Now THAT, would be offensive. (I still dont thin saying HQ artists is offensive the act of deviding the community is though.)
Um...hm...as long as the recommendations are still genuine, I'll add any artist with positive feedback to the list.
Please note that I am at work right now though. I do plan on making a few edits and adding a human/anthro/feral category...I just cant because work.
The concept of "HQ" is SUPER subjective. I'm not sure this sort of list is a good idea. Even if it is a good idea, however, it's in the wrong forum. This isn't a PSA. >_< Hope I don't sound rude, it's hard to get tone across on the internet. If anything this may be better suited as a personal bulletin instead of a thread.
edit: lmao aye rikki i see we had the same thought at the same time XD
This seems really subjective, and while the thought is nice? I feel as if this is better suited to a personal bulletin.
