Yes, I will watch back other artists and return favorites. I work on a system of mutuals. If you want me to publicly note you as a mutual on my profile than message me. If you want to be friends then definitely message me. ; )
If I favorite your work because I found it in a group gallery, you do not need to thank me for it/return the favor. I literally just review galleries to favorite art that I find visually appealing.
But, if you are going to thank me for the favorite, please do not post the thank you publicly to my profile, a private message is more personal/respectable.
If you want art requests or the ability to enter raffles, you must be watching me. Some raffles aren't open to new watchers to protect the integrity of the prize because sometimes people leave after the raffle.
I have private lists that keep track of who can and can not ask for requests/enter raffles.
To further protect the integrity of raffles, if we are friends: You can only win a raffle once. That way it doesn't look like I'm picking favorites.
I do take requests for free.
