Journal History


molicalynden's Profile Picture
Molica "Mollie"
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
I am a thirty-something, gluten-intolerant ex-military wife, college student, and mother, named after bread. I have a passion for art of all kinds, but find myself especially drawn to and moved by Impressionism/Post-Impressionism, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Synthpop music. There is a scientist in me as well and I am drawn to Science Thrillers, turn-of-the-century science fiction, and Steampunk. I have a romantic lurking in the closet, too, and my guilty pleasures include steamy paranormal romance novels and corsets. :)

I think that this world should not be a black and white world ; therefore, I try to infuse as much colour into it as possible at every opportunity! I consider myself a techno-hippie. I also believe that vampires should NEVER sparkle and colour and favourite should ALWAYS be spelled with a "u" in them - even if it's "wrong".

Favourite Quote: Stop being a little baby and get up. LIFE IS PAIN. Get used to it!
Personal Quote: Love, Peace, and Bulletproof Marshmallows!

:iconrequestsask: :iconpointcommissionsask: :iconcollabsask:
So, something that really bugs me is when someone comes to me and requests something, then makes no effort to say anything once the image is complete and I have notified them (by dA note). I just spent 8+ hours of my own free time, for free, creating something for someone else and I don't get any acknowledgement! That really ticks me off!

I am not expecting the requester to swoon over it or anything, but a simple "thank you" is what polite people do when others make time in their lives to honor your non-paid requests. I don't have a whole heap of time for artsy stuff - I have a toddler who thinks Momma's tablet is the coolest think to rub her grubby little fingers all over.

I could imagine someone might get shy if they didn't like what I made for them - that would make me a bit uneasy if I were in their shoes. But the polite thing to do is just say "thank you for your time". You can throw in a "while it's not quite what I was looking for, I appreciate your time and effort", also, if you want.

So, what happens when this occurs is I decide that the requester is an ungrateful little shit and I make a mental note to never, ever do another request for them - or even a paid commission.


That being said... I think that this happening to me could very well be cosmic karma for not having finished my half of an art trade I entered into with :iconrachaelm5: many years ago. She made the fabulously stunning Octoparrot, and I got extremely intimidated by the idea of creating a "jazzdragon" (I over thought it and psyched myself out. In fact, I am still over thinking it...). While I did acknowledge Rachael's awe-inspiring work (and I swooned over it, too, which is an appropriate reaction to her work) like a nice polite person, I still feel like an ungrateful little shit for not having finished my half... yet.
