So you want to do requests?
A basic guide to taking and making requests
Just like when taking commissions, requests also require a bit if organizing. And I hope that in this article I'll be able to help answer a couple of questions regarding requests.
Previous article: "So you want to do commissions?"
If you find the article informative, please :+fav: it.
First things first
If you're reading this article, you're probably thinking of opening up requests. Whether it is to improve your art, or to have some samples ready to move on to commissions: various people take requests for various reasons. Just take a gander through the Projects-forum and you'll see just how many there are.
Just like with commissions, it's important you decide what you'll be taking requests for. And whatever your choice or reason, be prepared for a lot of people to find their way to your pag

Lion Study...
Drawn at Nan Desu Kan, finished at home. Done with Watercolors and My pental brush pen. 
Headless Horsemaid
First time playing with Acrylic Inks, courtesy of a friend's art supply stash... made completely spontaneously without sketching. Still pretty happy with it, even though I've improved so much since I made this like 3-4 years ago. The original piece has many sparkles. I will probably do a redraw someday.
The Gift.
Done during my annual rewatch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Inktober. I swear this show was my entire childhood, Buffy is a part of me. Loving the comics.

First time really trying to do an ink wash with india ink. Purposely tried to agitate it for a fun texture... India ink, acts interestingly, more difficult to wrangle then watercolor, but that's probably more indicative of time practiced with either medium then an objective assessment.

So yeah, materials: water, india ink, technical pens, and watercolor paper.

This was actually drawn and painted at Snake River Fandom Con 2017 during a slow time.

As you guys know, I'm working on a long-form comic called, "Daddy Death". I was still in the character design/development stage at that point. So, obviously if I had any spare time, I was drawing my characters, trying out various poses, outfits, color schemes.

I saw a young Dad walk past our booth, with his young son on his shoulders, flopping around. My Dad loved the musical, "The King and I." So we watched it a lot. I don't remember much about it, except that they rode elephants, and lots of singing.Something about seeing that Dad with his son riding on his shoulders made me remember bouncing along on my dad's shoulders imagining that I was on an elephant traveling through the jungle and the bazaars, like the movie.

So I decided to draw it, and that started the idea, of having Ben go on his own adventures of imagination, during the ordinary routine of groceries, or playing at the park, etc. This became the first page.
