Link me to your characters, and I won't draw them, and then you won't have to draw mine either.  Hopefully this will prevent needless bloodshed.

I am not biased against your characters!  The commission artist role in general has not worked well for me.  You are welcome to suggest something but I probably will not be doing any more until August or later.

Oh, well. I suggest you to draw Orm, a character from a unpopular Russian animated movie called Snow Queen. I know there is no reason for to draw him as there is no reason to see that bad movie, It's only that I like him. I'll wait if you decide to come back to commissions.

Don't you mean inkshed? :-P

But yeah, I don't enjoy drawing unless it's what I want. Drawing anything requested of me is just a tiresome chore.

I'd make an exception for your characters though... they look pretty fun to draw.

I try to avoid ink when possible!

I am too busy and hopelessly obsessive compulsive to draw for other people now, even in exchange for money!  Typically not wanting to can also be a factor.

Yeah same for me... I hate drawing other people's tasteless requests so much it's not even worth it if they did pay me. You'd have to wave a fat wad of cash under my nose before I'd draw you an MLP picture, lol.

Ha! Consider your bluff called! If I draw Bealix, a counterattack will be crucial!

I meant it sincerely!  I possess the rare gift of being able to not draw things.

no!! i DEMAND an art war!!!

i can draw kumquat but i can't promise i'll spend any more than 2 or 3 hours on the image.

i have many characters and few references... would you prefer to not draw a humanoid character or a more non-standard-shaped character?

Ah I was being a weirdo again. I am not part of the art fights at all.   I am not good with art swapping these days, in general, and it confounds me that there is such a well-attended "event" set up about that.  I am too particular about kumquat to ask anybody else to draw it anyhow.

i thought i had caught on to your sarcasm, but then i went in the opposite direction i think.

alright, that's fine. if a bunch of artists are having a good time playing a fun game among themselves i see no reason to judge.

It is not a bad idea; ten years ago I might have greatly benefat from something more open like that, instead of the insular, single-minded company I had.  Maybe I should say I am "astounded" rather than "confounded."  The confoundment is my personal state of being which dislikes and has little time for art trades at this point in time.
Either way it seems funny to constantly see posts from various persons regarding a "fight" that includes no combat or even apparent competition, from what I can determine.

please forgive my forwardness about the trade! 
i like inserting fake "violence" where it doesn't belong because it adds a layer of absurdity to the game. it also helps when i am trying to get exercise or do homework, to pretend it is some heroic feat. i *wish* "war" meant "give each other presents along with good-natured verbal jabs." wouldn't that be a great world to live in?

There is nothing to forgive there; my erratic journals open themselves up to certain interpretations that I do not consider
when writing them.
I think it is fair to see mundane personal tasks in a questly sort of way so that they feel more significant or interesting.  I have certainly experienced that in certain cleaning tasks.  But in "art fight"ing the  terminology is imposed!  I think people should have a choice whether they want to pretend it is violent.
