Requests stamp by ARTic-Weather Requests stamp by ARTic-Weather
I have never seen this kind of stamp before when browsing. So thought I'd make one. Though it's kinda hypocritical saying that I sometimes do requests x_X

'Do me a request plz!'
'No. I'm quite busy.'
'FUCK FACE! IM GONNA REPORT U!'

To all those that are tired of people treating them like shit just for saying no, I dedicate this to you!

I don't know, this seems kind of rude to the people who have made requests, as well as it gives off an unnecessary rude vibe to whatever artist uses it. I've never meet anyone, nor have I ever myself, request something and acted rudely when they declined.

OMG, I knew this one kid who used to watch me who had a really annoying habit of making every single person take his requests. When they said no, he got all pissy and many of them started blocking him because of his behavior, only for him to make 50 million journals about how mean they were for blocking him. He did the same to me once, and I pulled him aside and called him out, yet he still kept it up. He's no longer on DA.

I also know this one really nice artist in the Nicktoons fandom who's famous for his crossover pics who takes only 5 requests each month(he's a very busy guy), yet when he tells people he can't take requests or whatever, they start cursing him out and sending him death threats. It's really fucking pathetic that people act like this over requests, and it's usually the brats who can't draw worth shit that treat artists like this. Like dude, if you're that desperate for a picture, draw it yourself!

I'm not someone who doesn't accept requests, but holy shit this. I remember someone saying to a friend "Can you do a request for me? If not then you're a mean person and I will hate you." Aww hell no you did not just say that.

OH god yes. Its not long since this happened to me.. I get "DRAW ME AS X" all the freaking time. Usually I don't even get a reference for the character they want me to draw, heck a lot of times the character doesn't even exist, so they're basically asking me to design them a character for free >.< and of course I'm a total jerk if I refuse.

Luckily, I do requests for friends only. That way, I wouldn't have to deal with the same drama as anyone else who has dealt with people begging for requests and flipping out if their offers got denied.

listen, just because a person doesn't do request doesn't make them mean. us artists put allot of effort and time into pictures. i used to do requests but spending hours on a pic for someone i don't know and get nothing in return. it doesn't make sense to me.

I agree with these kinds of stamps.

In April one person asked me for a bunch of paraskirt requests and I'd draw him one, but them he'd comment a 2-3 days later asking for another one.  He'd also bug me if it was finished or not.  I ultimately cancelled a request he had asked and told him no.

In June, I had another person hammer me with more requests like every 5 days or so before I ended up closing them.

I'm glad to know I'm not alone.

Yeah, it really doesn't make sense to give your art away for free because it hurts yourself and wastes all of your time and effort, and also hurts the industry as a whole. What some people do affects all of us, and they should keep that in mind. You're absolutely right. And it's the same for me, I used to take requests but people took advantage of that. And I had people try to befriend me just to get free stuff. What kind of friend is that? I'd honestly make everyone something if I had the time, but now I have way too much stuff to even keep up with so it can be really overwhelming. So many people... But the good thing is, not everyone is like that. :meow:

 So much :iconthisplz: I really don't like it when people try to befriend me just so they can get free art. They’re not real friends to me. I don't mind doing favors every once in a while. Just not all the time. It’s really time consuming. I hated it when I was in middle school and this girl would sit by me in class and when I would draw Sailor moon fan art she would snatch it from me. I used to give her requests and a bunch of people but after awhile i started to say no. I am not some kinda artist doormat..-_- So I can see what you mean. I know I am probably gonna get people begging me for requests someday again. It’s just a little weird getting a few watchers now. If I keep improving like I am now. Omg It's just gonna be overwhelming and i can't handle the pressure. I am sometimes a little afraid of uploading my art but there is people who are way more popular than I am and they see talent in me. They want to see more of my work so I am gonna continue uploading because I enjoy art and I love to inspire others.:heart:

I just wish people would stop giving people free art blindly. I use to do it when I was a teenager and it really hurt me a lot.D: So I know where i am coming from.x(

I especially hate it when people try to manipulate or guilt-trip you into it. Like really? -_- Best not to be a doormat. I love Sailor Moon, but I'd never take anything from anyone, that's just wrong. It sucks to be taken advantage of. 

It is a lot of pressure when you know you have a lot of people watching you. It can be really intimidating, and I'm afraid if I make one mistake, they'll never forget it. ^^; The problem I'm facing right now is that I just need to draw more. Your art is always inspiring. Never give up. And don't let anyone hold you back either. ^^ 

I agree completely. :nod::clap:

Oh you don't seem the type of person to do something like that.I know you're really nice.:heart: :heart: :heart:

A few 50+ doesn't really seem like a lot but it's a lot more than I am used to.xD Oh don't worry I'll never give up on art.It's in my blood but thanks.<3 The more people watch me the more haters I am gonna get as well and trolls which I am gonna ignore.xD I don't know what people expect from popular artists but no one is perfect and everyone has flaws.So there is always gonna be mistakes we can't help that.I think things would be boring if things were perfect.:)

I think you're more of a writer than an artist but I really enjoy your writing.I try to comment more when I can.I just been so busy lately. If you're really into art than you should if you have time but life gets in the way sometimes.I like to tell a story in my art more.So I am actually more of an artist than a writer.It's what I enjoy and do best. If I can draw I'll write but it sucks when I can't do either.xD Haha I don't think your art is bad it's really sketchy and it's not something I see anywhere so I know it's yours.I like your style and I would like to see more from you when you do get the chance to do art.:heart:Life can be so hectic.x( I hate it when I want to do art but can't.

Nah, I never take anyone for granted and I try to treat people well. The only time I don't is if they treat me really badly because I always try to be nice, but I also refuse to be a doormat. :D

I know the feeling... Any number is intimidating for me, I have social anxiety and it can be really overwhelming. It's good that you know that. With more people loving your work, you're bound to eventually get more people hating it. Trolls are everywhere. That happened to me too, back when I was really childish and I would complain about it because it hurt me. And then I learned to just disregard them. That's the best thing you can do, just ignore it. Everyone makes mistakes and no one is really perfect. 

Aww thank you so much! :tighthug: I think it could be that I enjoy writing more, for whatever reason. I've just been doing it longer than I've been drawing and I guess I take it more seriously. No rush or anything, my work will always be there. I dislike deleting things, as you can probably tell. xD As long as there's even one person out there who still might enjoy it, I feel like it's unfair to delete all of that work. Telling a story with art is a beautiful thing and you do it well. :heart: You have a really unique style to bring to the art world. You have a gift. Never give up. ^^

And I know, right? It drives me crazy when I can't draw or write when I'm dying to... :eager: Sometimes I think I rush myself too much with things. ^^;

Aw I see that's good.:D I am glad to hear that.:D

Yeah I heard someone say that when you're popular they said you can't be free anymore.I am like that's bullshit.>:c People get offended over the littlest things and I am not gonna just not say my opinion just because i am more known.That's stupid.I will just ignore.I think some popular artists don't know how to ignore people.If 20,000+ watchers are watching them then they can't expect to comment on every single thing that annoys them.People are gonna say whatever they want. I mean what people say on the internet used to bother me to but cussing them out doesn't make me look any better than they do and it doesn't help.It's just feeding the fuel with fire.

No problem!:D yeah i had older art up here and some of the stuff I drawn and upload here in 2013 i didn't like but i keep it up here because it would be unfair to my watchers.It's really daunting for new artists when they see my only best work and not my not so good ones.My friends even got upset with me one time when i cleaned a good portion of my gallery and thought I was leaving dA but I couldn't help it.D: It looked so awful and often the characters looked like they didn't have a chin ugh. I also often drawn horse faces.It just looked so awful I wanted to cry!D: I am serious I really cried.:(  I don't delete things anymore though I know people will hate a lot on my older drawings but it's like they don't understand an artists growth when they say things like that.. I often hate when people say really bad things about nekochank but if you look at her old art she improved a lot.. she has a lot of her old work that she didn't delete..

So I'll probably do a improvement meme soon and show my art that makes me uncomfortable from 2005 to now..xD haha If I can find my older art than that I'll try.. I heard from Sycra that it's a good thing when you feel that way and you're being honest.That's what people need to see so I am taking his advice. He talks bad and laughs at his art all the time.I do the same haha

Yeah I am having that problem right now.My mind is blank so I am having an art block.My mind is totally blank.Can't think of nothing..

Thanks for the encouragement.:D Hearing that over and over really helps since i am often my worst critic.:heart: :hug:

Yup.

There's some dude who favorites pictures of peoples OCs and when they go to his page to thank him he asks if they'll draw his... I was an unfortunate victim and recently he asked me if I'd draw some more characters for him... I mentioned that if he wanted me to draw his characters (that he never gave me a clear reference for), he'd have to pay...

He responded with 'we'll see' and I haven't heard from him since. :shrug:

Oh, thank you! I love you for making this stamp (no homo) :heart:!!

One time when I was on Hatena (here I go again with my "Hatena stories" :facepalm:) I was taking requests, and some guy asked me if I can draw Sonic. I drew him and he liked it. Then he ask me to draw Shadow. Drew him and he liked it. Then he ask me to draw other Sonic characters. I didn't want to say no, so I did. He liked them all. The next day, you know what I saw in his Creator's Room? MY PICTURES THAT I WORKED ON ALL NIGHT ON, STOLEN! :rage:

There wasn't no report button back then on there, so I ask if he could remove it...and he did (thankfully without cussing me out). I mean just cause somebody do a request for somebody else doesn't mean that there requested picture is now there's. I don't mind if they use there requested picture for a icon or using it as a "thank you", as long as they give credit (how hard is that, kiddies??). The artist is the person who toke out there time just to be nice to there fans. But goodness, some of the artist's fans gotta be immature, beg, and steal stuff.

This is the main reason why I don't do requests. :shifty:

Thank you. :worship:

There was one instance a few years ago when I had to close requests because slots were filled and one person asked for them despite that I clearly stated they were closed. I tried to clarify saying that I was going to make a new journal once they were open again. Then I got a note 4 months later by that same person who yelled at me for not making her shit despite that I told her requests were closed.

The irony was that I was being generous and squeezed in a spot because I didn't know how to say no, silently drawing her character but not updating my list. After that note she sent me I just threw away the drawing and she didn't get shit. It sounds mean of me to do but that type of treatment is uncalled for when it comes to someone doing a drawing for you for free.

If you are the type who yells at a person asking for a request despite that you clearly stated you don't do them, I will say right now that you have my condolences. I don't care how rudely you respond ether and I am usually the type who avoids conflict.

Yes, sooooooooooo true. Like, a few weeks ago this random kid was like "Hey! Can you draw my characters!?"
(I really didnt want to but I thought it was rude to say no until I saw this stamp later) Im like..."Ok...."
Then he was like..."DRAW MY PINCHEY CHARATCER! *Gives link*....
"Me...ok sure..."
I started drawing and only like what, 15 mins past? He was like "ARE YOU DONE YET? ARE YOU FINISHED?"
Kept on bugging me for awhile.
I posted it 6 mins later....
Next, he ask me to draw another one....seriosly....that is kinda rude after you already got one...
Yet again, I still thought it was rude to say no.....I really didnt want to make the artwork....but I somewhat did.
Does the same thing, keeps asking me when I finshed.
I post it a few minutes later...
Guess what? Both of them...It gets stolen.
I comment on the artwork he stole from me "Credit please?"
He's all like "ITS MY ARTWORK! YOU MADE IT FOR ME! I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT WITH IT!"
.....I report him and the artwork.
Next he's like "Hey draw me more since you wouldnt let me post the others."
I say "No"
He's all like "OMFG FUCK YOU! I THOUGHT YOU WERE A NICE PERSON! NOW I REALZE YOUR SUCH A BITCH!"
........Request...they surely get annoying. Now I see this stamp, now I know im not the only one. C:

Then the user asked if they could be friends, obviously just gor tge request :XD: needless to say, they were declined.
