Requests stamp by MeganTheRabbit Requests stamp by MeganTheRabbit
I've been getting random "do you take requests" on some of my old pictures (mainly my old icon pictures) and this random idea came to mind because it always annoyed me when people asked them.

I don't mind people asking for requests if there open; but if you just ask when it says no on there page it's just like, like no..just no.

Feel free to use.

I remade it and fixed the spelling error.

I got sick of repeating myself, so I'm just going to write a faq on here and disable the comments. If you note me for w/e reason don't expect a quick reply because I don't use Deviantart anymore. I only go on when I'm bored.

1. This is mean!
Want to know what I consider mean? People who want me to work for free. Not everyone can draw, just as not every person can build a house. Material costs aside, you pay people for their time. I hate this double standard for artists. An artist deserves to be paid for their hard work and time. Anything less is an insult.

2. I do requests!
Okay. I don't really care unless the artwork you did for free is being used to make money off of by someone else. Do what you want, I don't care. Even if you did you don't need my approval on anything. This stamp was originally directed at random people who came to my page and asked me to make art for them, despite it saying I don't do that.

3. Thankyou! This is exactly how I feel!
You're welcome. I would have deactivated my account a long time ago if it weren't for this stamp. I will not take it down or store it. This is yours to use until devinatart finally shuts down one day.


Put comments back on because yolo

Does it really count as work if you enjoy it?

i know some people don't have time to draw to strangers but if you put it into those words it does sound really cruel i'm not going to lie.

To all the people calling this "mean"... some people don't have TIME to work their ass off for some weeaboo n00b they don't know. Good art takes a lot of time and effort.
There's stuff called classes, jobs, and a life. Professional artists sell art for a living. You wouldn't go to a store and expect everything to be free, would you?

wow okay this is so ridiculously arrogant sounding? I enjoy making people happy and I don't really see art as just meaningless hours of work. Is that weird or something? I enjoy it. Requests are good because they help me practice with things I might not usually think of doing and for more complicated things that could be commissioned. The fact that I someone I don't know likes my work enough to request me is a compliment?

Nope.It's taking advantage of you and of your art u_u

so being nice & generous to people occasionally means i'm 'letting myself be taken advantage of' and the people i'm nice to are selfish for it?  loooooool wtf what an asshole ethos to look on life with
