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

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!

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'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..

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.

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.

90% of my gallery/OC art is requests, I've only done around 5 commissions in the past, though my gallery really isn't that large...
I ALWAYS fave, comment, thank the person, and try my best to keep active with the person's posts if I watch them, people love compliments :D. (I almost always watch the people I request/commission)

I'm really sorry people were such dickbags as to not even thank you, that disgusts me. I sometimes at least find some way to repay a person, even if they did it for free.
And it hurts the most seeing stamps like these because the honest truth is that the majority of requesters are douchebags, and anybody who's actually nice is immediately shot down for asking for requests (MY RULE #1 FOR ASKING FOR REQUESTS: Always read the entire profile over to make sure there's no "I DO NOT DO REQUESTS" somewhere.).

The usual reaction to asking (If there's no stamp/mention of requests) is either a kind "Yes." a blatant "No." or a complete overreaction and novel published on 1001 reasons why I'm an asshole. Even if they say no, I offer to look at their commission prices, but if they're just a dick to me I'll leave, my money is better spent on somebody without anger issues.

I'm not going to ask you for any, but if you were to consider re-opening requests for some of your watchers, I've found some artists like to do one of the following to keep requests AND commissions going:
-1-10 requests per month.
AND/OR
-Review the account of the requester, to make sure they're not just gonna get the art and go "Fuck you, bye."

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. ^^;

That makes me very, very, very, very angry..

God damn it. That's fucking terrible. Whether it's a gift, a commission, an art trade, a request, anything, I always type out a long comment telling them how much I appreciate it and how much I love it.

I'd rather kill myself than ever say anything like 'uhmmm  but i wanted it like -insert complaint here' on anything anyone made for me.

You have great art and it's clear that you put work and time into it, and it's terrible that someone would do that to you.

Ikr? It just pisses me off when someone goes and works their ass off, putting all the time into effort into making a request, art trade, or whatever, and the person who requested it just goes and comments a complaint. It's like they don't even care that someone put their best work into it. They only make themselves look like spoiled, ungrateful brats when they comment something like "BUT I WANTED DIS, I WANTED DAT. DO A REMAK OV IT!!!11111" -3-
So do I! I don't even care if someone misses a detail in a gift they make me, I still really appreciate the gift and I am highly thankful for it. I don't complain about it and ask them to make a remake if they got anything wrong, I just tell them how much I appreciate them for the gift, add it to my favorites, and move on with my life.
Why thank you very much! ^3^ I really appreciate your kind words! I think your art is great, too! Very cute. :3 
Also, I recall seeing some of your art in this hate group yesterday, called "DisgustingArt" or something like that. And I just wanna say I am so sorry that the asshole known as the admin put your art into that group. You don't deserve anything like that. Anyway, keep up the great work!~ :heart:

Yep.. I had a friend who always requested me to do things, and all I ever got was a 'thanks' or him pointing out some mistakes I made.

Yeah, people who are lucky enough to get a request shouldn't just leave a 'thx' or a 'cool', it's really rude.
I saw this guy that got a beautiful picture of his oc that looked like it would take hours and hours, and all I saw was a 'thx'. People like that must be the reasons why lots of people don't take requests.

Same, no matter how many mistakes the person makes, theres still lots of hard work and love put itno it.
You're very welcome, you deserve it. Thanks! :3

Wow, seriously? -3- Like I said, he should at least be thankful that someone actually bothered to draw a picture of their OC!

So true.

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.

I'm sorry they were such dicks. I ask for a lot of requests, but I'm never picky, I don't give any deadlines (Requesting AND a deadline? Noooo, very bad!) and I always fave/comment/watch. If I have spare llamas, I give those too. And my gratefulness to said person is neverending, it always hurts to me when I send a note and somebody says something along the lines of; "It'll take me a while, sorry, hope you don't mind." (That's very common), "My art style isn't so good, so please be a bit forgiving." (Jesus christ that's a heartbreaker), et cetera. I don't mind how long it takes, and the only "pickiness" is getting the big details, and I only correct them if it's still at the sketching stage. Other requesters give people like me a bad name and just fuck everything up for the artist. Sorry you've dealt with so much crap, they had no right to do that.

It's fine. ^^
I agree, I'm always grateful when someone finishes a request that they've given me. I never ask for too many requests or anything specific like full-body, for example. And I never knew people gave someone a deadline for a request! That seems ungrateful, people need to take their time for making requests.
Even if it does take a while for someone to make me a request, I don't mind. Though, if it takes longer than expected, I may remind them about it and politely ask about it, but I don't want to be a bother or anything like that, so I tell them that I'm sorry if I'm bothering them.
I agree, I can't stand ungrateful requesters or requesters who always rush people who are taking time on their requests. They shouldn't have a right to rush people or ask for a remake of their request that the artist put so much work into.
