When someone is doing art to help a good cause for the sake of another, it's horrible and in completely bad taste to demand where your request is.

Art for a good cause> free art demanded from people who have lives.

This is why I don't take requests. Because of idiot assholes with self entitlement issues.

From what I've seen of that particular person- and sadly, I've seen them on the Bioware boards, and youtube- they are a very impatient and crass person.

:tighthug: It was completely uncalled for. You're helping with a HUGE community project that is helping someone who needs it desperately- they should be commending you, not squalling like a child for free art.

(Which, by the way, I still don't know how you do it; you put way too much time into your art to just give it out for free. <3)

i have a history with that person .___. i thought it was over, but nuuuu.... the funny thing is i wanted to do this pic at the beginning (as i have written few times - in my free time, when i'm done with other pics i plan to do), but this constant pushing made me change my mind completely.

I'm very glad You reacted :tighthug:

It just drives me nuts when people take advantage of the generosity of others. Argh it's my biggest BIGGEST pet peeve.

You obviously put so much work and attention into your art, and I don't think people like that realize how much effort goes into your pieces. I just... *fumes*

*snuggles on*

And, the timeline is why I don't - i.e., the good cause (or, just life circumstances) could be an emergency that comes up, the request could be something 'owed' at the same time, and there seems to be no standard of etiquette before someone runs to 'Artist Beware' to schmear your name!

If you were a dry cleaners' shop or an ad agency w/ deadlines, I can see it, but there are different and (unfortunately) no standard timelines in the case of making art by request... I've been waiting many months for a request from an artist, but I don't quite know what the ideal way of *cough* reminding her about it is, so there's that too...

Honestly, requests are the lowest priority in my opinion. It is free art, being given by the artist out of generosity. If you wanted the art at a certain time you'd pay for it. It always irks me when people stat getting cranky about not getting their free art in a short time- especially from people like :iconcoupleofkooks:, who spends ungodly amounts of time on her work.

As for Artist Beware, I don't think they take kindly to people flailing angrily about requests, so I wouldn't worry about that =)

Oh I thought you were talking about paid commissions! Oh YEAH, requests are at the bottom of the list for sure... xD

There is a certain person who 'requests' art from every single WoW fan artist, I shall not name him since we all know him, but I personally believe in paying for the stuff, myself, I know how long it takes and the mental effort involved in getting an image done to your satisfaction. I want the money to show the artist that I believe in them enough to send them energy units via PayPal. :)

(And right after I typed my reply, I heard from the artist, who is pluggin' away at my commission, so it's all good!)

Exactly- and I do know who you're talking about; they request dragon age art as well. He's asked if I do requests. I flat out told him no. I don't ever do art for free unless it's for friends. I have fibro, and my muse and hands sometimes just don't work- I won't impede commission progress by fussing over requests, nor will I waste my spoons on them.

Never mind that most people that get requests post them in THEIR gallery, and they get all the comments/faves/attention, etc, and the artist gets NO recognition. That's the main reason I refuse to do requests.
