This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph.
Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.
And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.
People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.
Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.
I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.
And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.
i’d also like to add that artists and writers have a right to deny requests they feel uncomfortable filling, for any reason. please don’t get mad at them, especially if no money is involved.
This. so this. all of this.
Just adding this here since I know some people will appreciate this :)
