“The entire process was pretty smooth. Way easy to monitor the status via Trello so there was no doubt on the professionalism. The correcting I needed during the sketching was taken care of without a problem. Really enjoyed working with Melde.”

“I came across Melde at ACFI 2023 as a fellow vendor. They were perusing the dens on Sunday before we opened for the final and I tagged along with her. When we came to her table I saw she was offering Draw-tober commissions and I had to snag the Halloween one. My girl came out amazing in her style! The sketch was super clean and detailed, something you don’t see quite often when purchasing a ‘sketch’. Melde was also very informative on when the work would be done, which to be honest I completely forgot about until I got the e-mail. She’s a great artist, wonderful customer service, and an amazing person. I hope to vend with her again in the future and commission more work! “

Lunar Lapine 11/1/2023

“I’ve commissioned Melde for a handful of artworks so far and they’ve all been fantastic beyond belief. I’m usually very nervous regarding pregnancy artwork, but that hits a soft spot! When the artist lights up about a commission, it makes me giddy. I inquired about vore as well and that was met just the same. She really does exceptional work, and the pricing is completely worth it. Any edits needed are easily discussed. Turnaround varies based on many things, but the end product is stellar, as aforementioned. Highly recommend. “

Shady Inktail 9/22/2023

“Dragonmelde is always a pleasure to work with! From the easy to use queue and status updates to superb communication, I cannot say enough positives. Worth every second of the wait! One thing is for sure, I will definitely commission more.”

Some Dumb Bird 8/22/2022

“I met you in the artist’s alley at GFM 2022 and you were a delight to speak with! Your work was absolutely worth the wait; I am thrilled with the finished product! Super professional and transparent every step of the way!”

Roake 8/16/2022

“Absolutely brilliant energy. I’m glad I found your booth at AC, loved your outfit and the “introduction” of what your outfit was, and holy crap the turn around time on something you were saying may have to be taken home because you felt like you were swamped.. You’re amazing, Melde, and I hope to work with you again!”

Kilana Tatterwing 4/7/2022

“Melde was quite polite and attentive during the sketching process. They made sure to get every detail nailed down and up to my mental description, or at least as close as possible. The result was a beautiful piece. The only complaint I have was that I wasn’t aware of my commission application missing something and as such, took some months for this to complete. However, this is softened a bit as they were honest about the wait. It’s partly on me, but I wish I was informed earlier. Even with this misunderstanding, I enjoyed the process overall, and will consider commissioning Melde again, once my finances allow me to do.”

Ray 6/9/2022

“The speed and quality of the badge is great! I got it done within a day [at Anthrocon] and it’s of exceptionally high quality. Communication was great and they were definitely one of the best vendors at Anthrocon!”

Wacky Hijinks 4/7/2022

“Met Melde at Anthro Northwest 2021 in the dealer’s den and bought a commissioned sketch after my friend Wildmark recommended them! The finished product came out great and made for a nice gift to another friend of mine!”

Hidden_man 4/13/2022

“I first found out about Melde at a local furry convention, while checking out their booth one of their badge examples caught my eye. I went for it, and was really happy with the results! Super pleasant to work with, and I had my badge in no time. I’d definitely recommend them, and I’d definitely commission them again”

“I’ve commissioned a badge, wing-its, and a full group piece from Melde. She always does a great job, is easy to communicate with, and updates her commission tickets consistently. Also has two adorable cats.”

Kaspar Stonenature 11/1/2021

“I met Melde at Megaplex in 2021. I had a vague idea of what I wanted in a take-home badge. The communication was great as I would get updates every week but also could email if I had any pressing questions. Would recommend working with this artist especially if you enjoy collaborating ideas with an artist.”

Jet 11/3/2021

“Melde is an amazing artist to commission from! Always giving updates to your artwork and producing some amazing pieces! This is my third piece from Melde and will continue to commission her for future ideas!”

Anpu the Jackal 11/3/2021

“The style is what really caught my eye at Denfur 2021, but the idea of a beer label badge was too good to pass up (I’m a beer snob). Our interactions weren’t extensive, but the organization and streamlined process was very professional and puts customers up front to see how things are progressing. I love the badge I got and it will be part of my collection for future conventions. I will definitely reach out for more commissions! O_o”

Squeezy the Red Fox 10/14/2021

“Artist did great work. She answered emails within a day which is good. She also did good by keeping up with her Trello queue and weekly email updates.”

A Anonymous 10/20/2021

“I’ve been in the fandom for 5 years now and have never had any art before. I had seen Melede’s [sic] work in some of my local telegram chats so I figured I’d try my luck. My badge turned out way better than I could have ever hoped, especially given that I had never commissioned anyone before and wasn’t 100% sure on what I wanted! Melede [sic] was very responsive to my emails and the turnaround time for this commission was very quick. A great experience and would highly recommend!”

Stripey 5/25/2021

“Was an easy and great experience working with them. Will definitely think about future commissions with them soon!”

Reese 5/25/2021

“I’ve received several pieces from Melde and each one is expertly done and well made. She’s kept me well informed on the progress of each piece and posts regularly on her Trello to show how things are moving. The professionalism she shows with her work is exemplary. I’ve subscribed to her Patreon as a result and will definitely continue to support her and her work.”
