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

Actually, you can have people give you points and llamas in change for a request.

So, it's not a request anymore. It's a PC.

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).

My closes friends gets requests. Others have to pay.

The thing I hate the most is when they ask for it :

- On my profile, when it's written CLEARLY that I DON'T do them.
- On a deviation. I think this is the worst one. You know, you post a drawing that took hours to finish and you suddently get
this : "Do you take requests ?". Nhhhh... I hate it.

Also, most of these guys are strangers, they ask for requests and then run away and never talk to the artist again.

Thanks you for making this stamp.
