31 (who?)

Frikkin' this so hard. Have had way too many people bitch at me about requests I supposedly owe them so now I just don't take anymore :iconwhywouldffffplz:

I mean people can drop requests on me all they want but there's absolutely no guarantee or obligation for me to do them :dummy: Might end up drawing one that stands out to me but ignore another one, which is nothing personal against the person who pitched the idea.


of course art trades are an entirely different situation

and now someone will inevitably take this the wrong way and bitch me out

sorry dude just had to get this off my chest

50 bucks says the ones that were bothering you are kids or teenagers. Just a guess.

Just tell them you have a case of selective illiteracy that makes it impossible for you to read commission requests. :iconrainbowdashlolplz:
That'll get 'em.

You are the master of your own work. Unless they are paying you hard cash or you agreed to a trade they've got no business telling you what should be creating artistically. There are way too many people who suffer from entitlement syndrome. The sun does not go around them!

You DO have the right to say no! Enough said.

A request is a request - up to you to do them or not.  Please don't feel bad that you don't have super time-traveling powers to draw all of the requests. 
 (well, not 'too' bad anyway..)

Woah, we're pushing the envelope a bit here, aren't we?

I mean, artists should be treated like human beings?

Man, I don't know if I can support this...


/sarcasm for the confused :dummy:

This is why I never, ever, take requests.
ToxicITZI Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013
grievous, this is an excellent point you've made here.
I would even say you had me as soon as I read "what if I told you". Just, brilliant all in all. :)

also, I wouldn't worry much about discussing things, this is your journal after all.
