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

Sigh. I don't know what depresses me more. The attitude of some requesters or the fact that they pushed you into making this stamp. It shouldn't be this way

I do free requests only to be nice but after realizing that there are some people only looking for free art, I stopped requests. I've had one person get upset at me for not doing free requests but I spend about three hours on my work and heck I have had people ask me for requests and when I do it, what do they do? NOTHING. They don't thank me nor fave it. So I don't want to waste my time drawing for someone who only looks for  free stuff.

Ugh, this stamp describes me. I swear, the reason why I stopped doing requests is because of how ungrateful the requesters were to me. One time, this one person requested me to draw Shadow the Hedgehog and Amy Rose as ponies, along with Sonic the Hedgehog and Sally Acorn as ponies. So, I drew Shadow and Amy first. I didn't make it a full body picture though, but I didn't think the requester would care if it was a full body picture or not. And guess what happened after that? The requester commented, "Sorry, but I wanted a full body picture. Can you make a remake of this along with Sonic and Sally too?" I mean, just....seriously? I worked my ass off on that picture, yet they didn't even appreciate me at least drawing the damn picture. After that happened, I decided to take a break from requests. Then, a while later, they went onto my profile and commented "Don't forget to make the remake of the Shadamy ponies picture (along with the Sonally ponies)." I said that I was too busy to work on it at the time. Then, that same person replied "With them other requests" (a lot of people requested me at the time, which is another reason I stopped doing requests, it puts a lot of stress on me). Really, they just couldn't take a hint that I was too busy to do requests at the moment. Then, after a while, I decided to quit doing requests. When that same person asked about it, I said I don't do requests anymore. Then, what did they do next? They raged at me like a little 5 year old. I swear, I hate to sound bitchy at the moment, but what an ungrateful brat. -.- Then, another time, another person sent about 4 notes to me saying "You can make requests????" I specifically told them I STOPPED doing requests at the time, but the just kept annoying me by sending more notes. I had to block them for that. Well....I'm sorry for all the ranting, but I had to get this off my chest. ^^;

What an ungrateful person. Requests are a CHOICE and FAVOUR, not compulsory or good manners but a CHOICE and FAVOUR. Really, someone is going out of their way for you and you act like its EXPECTED of you? That's nasty. And yes, I KNOW that I've made requests in the past (and will probably do so in future) but I NEVER expect someone to automatically do my request just because I asked, that's rude. And presumptious.

this bugs me alot, I remember this person wanted me to do art trade so I was like ok and she wanted me to draw a whole portrat of her OC's,

just then I look at her gallery and holy cow! them drawins were terrible I couldnt barely see what they were (I know this sounds kinda bitchy) 
but why are you gonna work soooo hard on a drawin that takes days to draw just for someone to trade you a lazy 10 minute drawin like is that even a fair trade?

So true. Person says they take requests? Request something. Other than that, it's really rude to ask.
Like, make your own stuff if you want art so much and see how difficult it is. I know I'm not a very good artist but I appreciate those who work hard! They don't deserve to be spat on.

well it is stated bluntly but as for all artists,

you can do requests if you want, good for you

if you don't want to, that's great, that doesn't make you rude

if you do commissions for some extra cash in school, awesome

if you do commissions to pay bills, cool

if you do requests for views, great

if you do requests for fun, even better

if people stop watching you for not doing requests, who cares

if people pay you to draw since they want art, that is the point.

in turn, every artist has their reasoning, they are people.





I do commissions since I am sickly and not the best with jobs

that I have drawn for 17 years now and have done it professionally for 6 years and have been doing commissions online for a year now. 
my first customers are people that I know since they wanted to see me succeed. 

So I feel I am good. I do a fullbody fullcolor commission for 35.00 USD or 3500 points (thats the same price by the way) and it takes me two and a half hours to do one of those

I open 20 slots a month, so lets do some math here

if I do 20 commissions a month at 35.00 USD a commission (which I have other prices so this may not always be the case) I will make 700.00 for the month.

700.00 is enough for 
200.00 food
350.00 rent (and that is a studio, I don't think everyone can live in those)
100.00 for my vice (cigs, don't start its gross)
100.00 for insurance.
_______________________________
750.00

so even at those prices i am not making enough to live.
so prices are around there for a reason. don't think someone asking for 50.00 USD for a fullbody is too much since i am low balling to try and show my generosity somehow and still considered expensive.

what if that artist has kids? medical bills? a car? and they dump all their time into this since they do in fact get these commissions and frankly, still not making enough?

I am being devil's advocate here. 
all artists and frankly, people have the right to say what they do with their life, I sunk my entire life into art, such as many other artists, I think we are at least worthy of living at a decent wage?

as for request artists, I get it too, have fun while you can! it is fun to just draw whatever others want. and I don't see either side as a lesser artist for it






as for the stamp, it is for the cases of just being tired of saying no, no matter if you have stamps, or that they know you don't. i think its just the poor girl was swamped and people gave her grief. I would love to see her art up again, its a shame she quit, but as for any level of artist your opinion does count, just don't attack someone else for their opinion.




lets all learn to be humanist, nothing is ever black and white.

True!!Tho,it is nice if you are taking requests because some people can't afford money/points.On the other hand,they should UNDERSTAND if you don't have time,or you're just not in the mood to take requests.

When people comment on an artists page that clearly states they don't do them is rude. That's not taking to time to look for the answer before commenting just to save the effort of looking. That is when I find request requests rude and annoying. 
I only count situations where there is no clear 'requests closed' or non-existent statement as okay to ask. Or the person has their requests open.
Requests in general,I have no problem with Cutie Shrug . It's sorta like a gift yet they ask first, imo XD. My only real issues are the request beggars (people stated above).
