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.


EDIT-
I remade it and fixed the spelling error.


EDIT 2:
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.

EDIT 3:

Put comments back on because yolo

The only people crying about how they're entitled to free art are either kids or people who put no effort into their own work, as seen in the comments below.

It's not being selfish. To many comments are annoying. Also, for a person like me, I never do requesets. Unless you want to work your butt off for hours, close and ignore requests.

People work hours on pictures and then the other person doesn't give something in return. That's unfair. You understand now? Requests suck.

What's wrong this taking requests? Why do you always have to get something in return when helping others or doing a good deed?
It's kind of selfish...

"What's wrong this taking requests?" There's nothing wrong with taking requests. If you take some, good for you. ;)
"Why do you always have to get something in return when helping others" Helping? Helping with what? I didn't get it, can you explain it please? :)
I want something in return because I spend hours, sometimes even whole days working on my pictures. It takes a lot of time, effort and sometimes nerves lol. Time is precious and I think we all who draw for others deserve something in return

EXACTLY!! I mean think about it this guy is complaining that he doesnt get nothin in return when he works his ass off but what does he want in return?? Not points. But the only other thing you can give on deviantart...your money. But how did you earn that money OH YEAH!! You worked your ass off for it so this man has no place not to give requests

It's not taking requests that's bad. It's demanding requests.
One could argue it's selfish to demand ones time to make you a piece of art without anything in return.

If they want to get paid, yes
But helping others without getting something in return is also fine every now and then

i had no issue with people who want to do art for free. That is their choice. I  take issue with people who demand that an artist takes requests.

I know how that feels... ouo'
(Much more than that...)

I wouldn't put this on my lookup, but I completely agree with it.
Mostly because I'm not a confrontational person and try to be nice when I refuse a 'request', even though it's a bit rude for some random person to say that they 'supposedly' adore your art, yet they aren't even watching you, and you've never seen there name ANYWHERE before that moment.

Yup, people going out just to see if they can kiss-up to you, or even bluntly ask for art for free, that bugs me...

I just love how some people complain that because they can't draw, they're entitled to ask people who can.

Ignoring the fact that the people who draw spends oftentimes years honing their skills.
If it was talent alone, I can see the justice in asking for requests if you happened to be unlucky and couldn't draw.

But it's not talent; it's skill.
Someone worked to draw they way they could, and thereby deserve to have the right to refuse people who "can't draw" and won't compensate them.
If you can't draw, it's your own fault.
If you can't draw, learn to draw.
If you can't draw, don't moan about how you can't to someone who can.
Either pay them or learn to do it yourself. XD

And those arguing about it being nice need to learn the difference between a favor and manners. :'D

Thank you for making this stamp. :)
While it's a bit harsh to put on my page (clashing against the nice and open feel), I really agree with it. ^^

Some 25 year old brony been going around yelling at people if they do free request. He's such asshole and really stupid. HELL he even watch 55,000 people and he got piss off because he couldn't watch no more people. people ask why he wants more people to watch and know what he said? "Because I want more friends"
Yeah, he's really stupid for 25 year old guy.

While I certainly agree about people wanting a free-be, I have seen cases when it goes the other way. Things like: 

"You want me to give you 5-20 bucks and you'll draw me a picture? I can draw the same picture for myself for free!"

I flat out just don't take requests at all. Partially because I am aware of the kinds of people who will ask me for stuff, I can't really set boundaries, people in my real life can and most likely will see some of the weird shit I draw, and I'd rather there be some kind of payment. In my case, I do Trades!

I don't do that because I respect the hard work of others. If I want art from someone I wait for them to open commissions and pay them for their time like they deserve. (And pay them well, might I add)

The first person to get points on deviantart dot com had to have paid the site to get the points. I believe the exchange rate is 80 points = 1 dollar usd.

I don't really see how that's relevant though, since most artists use pay pal to get paid for their art which pretty much directly puts money into their bank account.

Lemme tell you something.

Art, drawings, it takes time to make.  Some times only a few minutes, yeah, but most of the time, it takes hours, days, weeks, in some extreme cases, months. People to go college to learn how to create art.

You know what you do when you take someones time up so they can perform a service for you? You pay them. The cook who just spent 30 minutes preparing your meal? You pay him. The cleaning lady who just cleaned your hotel room? Her time is paid for in your bill. The toy you just bought? You're paying the person who took the time to run the machine to make it + the cost of materials. The construction worker on the street fixing the road? He's not doing that for fun either buddy, their are bills to pay!

When you want a service, you pay people for their time and skill to do the service, since you, yourself can't do the service like they can.

An artist is literally no different. They lend you their time and skill for monetary compensation.

If an artist wants to provide their service free of charge, that's their choice, but you are not in a place to demand that they give you their time for free.

You do realize that being an artist is a profession that people are paid to do, and they go to school for and they do it outside of deviantart right? That most logos on websites, designs for video games, designs for story books  and comic books and designs for advertisements literally come from artists of all types because being an artist isn't only a hobby but a career too?

I personally don't use deviantart at all these days to buy art from people and have been paid outside of the internet to do my work for people.

Leave her alone. You don't know that. If you even bothered to read the description, you can clearly see that she DON'T CARE about others who take requests. Therefore, why accuse her of asking for them? And this account is dead. How could she even be asking? And she had to have been one who does art, so why should she request? Artists can do art for themselves! Requests are for the hell of it, or for people who can't do art at all.

Again I say, leave her alone. And remember to READ THE DAMN DESCRIPTION!
