Requests stamp by MeganTheRabbit Requests stamp by MeganTheRabbit
I've been getting random "do you take requests" on some of my old pictures (mainly my old icon pictures) and this random idea came to mind because it always annoyed me when people asked them.


I don't mind people asking for requests if there open; but if you just ask when it says no on there page it's just like, like no..just no.

Feel free to use.


EDIT-
I remade it and fixed the spelling error.


EDIT 2:
I got sick of repeating myself, so I'm just going to write a faq on here and disable the comments. If you note me for w/e reason don't expect a quick reply because I don't use Deviantart anymore. I only go on when I'm bored.

1. This is mean!
Want to know what I consider mean? People who want me to work for free. Not everyone can draw, just as not every person can build a house. Material costs aside, you pay people for their time. I hate this double standard for artists. An artist deserves to be paid for their hard work and time. Anything less is an insult.

2. I do requests!
Okay. I don't really care unless the artwork you did for free is being used to make money off of by someone else. Do what you want, I don't care. Even if you did you don't need my approval on anything. This stamp was originally directed at random people who came to my page and asked me to make art for them, despite it saying I don't do that.

3. Thankyou! This is exactly how I feel!
You're welcome. I would have deactivated my account a long time ago if it weren't for this stamp. I will not take it down or store it. This is yours to use until devinatart finally shuts down one day.

EDIT 3:

Put comments back on because yolo

i do requests for practice and as a friendly gesture, but you should never make someone draw something they dont want to

This is so relatable,like other people who ask a lot of artists with requests and in the end they will find out they were "scammed" or tricked?

I am so gonna use this, drill it into those helldamn idiot's heads

Considering I pursued a higher education in art, and there are professions that rely on art. Yes. Doing art is working. It's a learned skill. A learned luxury skill that you are not entitled to for free.

I HATE people who say that artists who want money for their work are selfish/greedy, THEY ARE NOT.

Artists contribute SOMETHING, whether they get paid or give it away for free. That's more than I can say for people who beg for free art constantly.

 Random People who ask for requests are selfish and ignorant. It is clear that I don't take requests and a random person asked for a request.

Right? Like once this guy wanted me to draw this character in nightclothes standing in a bedroom, then him dancing in the room (!), and something else I can't recall but tied into this same theme. Granted, that's not quite as weird as some other requests I've seen, but still, he had this obvious fetish for... nightclothes and bedrooms, I guess.

Oh boy, sounds about right xD. My first request was for some two-headed girl OC... honestly, it makes you wonder what makes them think that you would ever want to draw such bizarre things in the first place (especially in your case with the night clothes thing)

Especially if there's nothing whatsoever dealing with fetish work in your gallery. But I notice these types of people are oblivious to anything but themselves and their spank material.

Always tell yourself it could be way worse. XD

If 50 people requested you, and no one commissioned you if you had them up, and they ALL demanded the requests be done in 5 days -, would you STILL be at their commands?

Pretty much, I know which ones need the requests sooner than others, plus time = quality.
Just about everything I do is requested by someone.
Plus, 5 days is reasonable.

Yes I agree, its just so disrespectful to have someone say "Hai can u plz draw this char for me thx" I am like "NO"
Artist are not robots. We don't follow any rules by someone's command. We are people who may have kids to raise, bills to pay and lives  to live. This is the message that most people don't seem to get. I am fine when a friend asks but I will refuse to do any free work for someone I don't know.

I once opened requests and I think I got about 6 or 7? I can't remember. After doing the requests people were kind enough to give me very nice thank you's but then a few months after that I began to realize "what more do I get out of this other than people's satisfaction?" I really like making people happy, I really do. But I just feel that maybe I could get a little more out of it. (sorry if I sound selfish) All artists do deserve a bit more respect on here.

This is what I always feel like saying when someone I don't even know asks me this goddamn question when I literally said on my ID that I only do it for people I know well or that I consider are my friends. Now I do ask that question to other artists on here or somewhere else, but that's only when I see that requests are open or that I need to ask them first or if I was their friend or an inspiration/idol/senpai and they would only do it for others like me.
