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

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!"

If some random kid ask me for a request, I'll just scribble and draw and hand them some extremely shitty art ^^~ (myartisshitanyways)

If it's my close friends..then sure I'll try my best

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!

I totally see your point and I certainly don't disagree to any extent really, but I certainly agree with the other side of the argument as well. It all depends on the situation. People just doing art for fun, or just doing requests occasionally can afford to do art for free and love the happiness it brings them. It's just that people doing art for a living can't really afford to do art for free often because arts the only thing paying the bills. Of course you probably already knew that XD but I'm mostly just putting that out there for anyone who dosen't I gues

I'm completely cool with doing requests for some of my faithful watchers who have been 
a) supportive
b) gifted me alot
c) really good friends
or d) all of the above

i will not give requests to those who hunt down people doing requests just to get free art..

:iconxxanamatuerartistxx:
XxAnAmatuerArtistxX Featured By Owner May 28, 2015
Well, if your requests are open, that means that you are allowing people to request the art. They don't necessarily hunt you down, but try to find someone who will do some art for them because they are unable to do it themselves or have not the currency to exchange with the art. It's not fair that you only allow someone who supports you or gifts you or is  a really good friend to receive art from you. You should give other people a chance too, because that also means you can also improve on your art skills by doing more.
So, you should be:
Completely cool with doing requests for people who have
a) signed up to deviantart
b) gone out of their way to find a decent artist and then request you
c) anyone :L

You will not give requests to inanimate objects for example a desk, or a table. Only people. All people.

Look, my main problem is going out of my way to work my butt off for someone I don't know. 
For my supportive watchers, yes, because they are the ones who encourage me and cheer me up.
they do genuinely support me, and if something like their birthday or Christmas comes along, I won't mind giving them a good piece of art. And it's obvious that those who make me stuff I'm going to appreciate, and I will most likely give them something in return if they ask. For those that are really good friends, it's a no-brainer. One of my really close friends on here, we ask each other for stuff all the time, and we're happy to do it.
as for your reasons:
a- Okay, they're one of the millions on here that I don't know, no difference.
b- more like typed in "requests" in the search bar
c- Again, I don't know them, most people on my old account just said a mere thanks, then never had anything to do with me until I opened requests again. 

As as for the last sentence...what the heck does that have to do with anything!?!?!?!

:iconxxanamatuerartistxx:
XxAnAmatuerArtistxX Featured By Owner May 29, 2015
The last sentence has to do with art. I was saying you should not give requests to inanimate objects (tables, desks, chairs). Second of all, that's a bit sad. You'll only give something to someone if they have given something to you. I.e, only give people art who have given support or given friendship. GIVEN. That's like asking a hobo for all his change in exchange for a warm place to sleep. They don't have that much money. In this case,  asking someone who supports you or gifts you art or is a close friend if they want any art. They either don't want to support you, not their problem, they either aren't your close friend,  or they can't gift you; they're not good at art. A bit selfish, dontcha think? You're basically asking for something in return when their appreciation/ the happiness on their face when they receive the art should be enough. For new people on Deviant, people like you aren't a good example, and they may not like it if they know that people like you expect things back.

Exactly, what does giving art to inanimate objects have tondo with any of this?
And what's sad? That I don't want to give art to someone I DONT KNOW. And for some reason it's selfish because in the past, anyone I've given a request to most of the time favs and walks away. That's no gratitude. I worked my butt off for this person, and all I got was a fav. No comment, they don't watch me or fav any of my art, but as soon as I open requests again, they pounce.
You know what's sad? You calling me selfish and sad because of my priorities that no one else has a problem with. You had to start this arguement went you could've just left it alone. If someone looking to request someone saw that on my page, they'd move on with life. And you wanna know why?  Because millions of other people on DA do it!!!! I feel sorry for you that you have to try and pick a fight with someone just because of their priorities that A LOT OF OTHERS USE. And mainly, all in all, I will probably never do requests because I DONT WANT TO. you cannot change that. So go find someone else to argue with, I won't bother reading any spitball you throw at me.

I personally have never done any requests and I don't intend on doing so, unless of course it is from someone close to me and I do want to do it, and even so I probably wouldn't do it lol

I'm too lazy to do it + I have more important things to do + time is money + everything that takes time and skills should cost something because when ppl who can't do something, get it done for free, they take it for granted, and that ends up devaluing the price of what you do

If I go to educate myself to have a job in the future and ppl ask me to do what I do for free, then wth am I going to live of. And if it's a hobby, I do it to enjoy myself, not to satisfy random strangers ¬_¬

And for those who do take requests, I believe/hope they do it 'cause they're having fun while at it and/or contributing to something worthwhile. Just my two cents.

I'm having a hard time finding work (due to being scared of it after I quit my old job) so I can't afford to do requests, so I have commissions open. 'Course when you only have commissions open, nobody asks you for anything. Watch, if I suddenly say I do requests, I'll probably get people asking for them.
