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.

derp

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

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!

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.

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...

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

If they request, they are politely asking you to do a favor, that means

Llama Emoji 08 (Crying) [V1] Sorry people are pushy about it. I mean seriously it's just a request, AS IN SOMETHING YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO.
YOU are the artist and decide when you draw and when you don't.
People  seriously need to respect that.

Requests are basically ideas from other people who freely tell the artist or person, there is no Guarantee that the artist or person will in fact use the idea supplied by the Other person at all.
Personally, if I did ever give you a idea (or request, but I'm not speaking that way) I would not mind if you said no to it, as an artist has the pure right to reject anything that comes their way.

Fine with me GF*!  I don't want to sound 'gushing', but I like your work because it's *your* work, *your* ideas, *your* execution of what you had in mind.

When you've had inspiration from somebody else's comment, you credit it to them and illustrate what *you* had in mind, twisted or otherwise.

:shakebloodytampon: I'm not sick, really Sanity is Overrated

I've had artistic friends who sometimes took my suggestions, sometimes they didn't.  It didn't bother me, I'm just glad I could help out.  Hopefully I'm helping out now when I say 'keep on keeping on'.  No worries. Creepy Smile - NaNo11

Ok, some people commenting on this journal need to shut the fuck up
It's not bitching.
If it's happened way too many times for her own comfort, then that gives you no right to rub it in her face.
I'm sorry if I sound like I'm "bitching", but you need to cut this poor person some slack!

An artist of your caliber... sorry everybody, but requests should REALLY not be something you do.

Maybe for good friends, but always put it as a "commission."  I consult artists a lot, and one thing I always tell them, hit a certain point of popularity or skill, and requests are out of the picture.

As much as it spites my fellow art lovers, requests should be something you simply don't do.  Post it on your profile, make it clear... hopefully that will help with the queue of askers.

The worst part for sympathetic people when they reach a high enough standing is saying no.  I know what you are feeling, i've seen it and felt it myself in certain fields.

All I';m saying is, this particular situation does require a rather firm hand.  Oftentimes, saying no is the difference before overloading stress
