Mivering artist to draw your oc then getting anoyed when they dont

Yes im on this topic why because recently its been happening alot with me exspecialy since i do alot of art trade and commissions,
And basicaly its dont ask an artist to draw your oc unless they have request open. 9/10 of the time the artist will say no.

Why should you not do it?
Well its very rude to just go up to any random artist and say " draw my oc" and trust me ive had alot of people come up to me and just say that. A more appropriate way to asking would be "hey is your request open" if they say no don't go all mopey and start begging, wish them a good day and say thank you for actually responding to you.

Here someways to help
Good ways: if artist says yes:
U: "hey are your request open"
A: "yes they are :) "
U: " awsome, well i was wondering if your migh be able to draw my oc, if your not to buisy"
A: "offcourse"
U: "thank you"

If artist says no:
U: " hey are your request open"
A: " sorry they are not at the moment"
U: " its ok thanks for replying and keep up the amazing work"

They are 2 great ways to speak to an artist about them drawing your oc.
Dont be someone who gets on artist nevers by always mivering them, be someone who is polite and gets on a good side of artists

Hooe that helps
Love natalie :)

EXACTLY!
I'm sooo glad you posted something, because I was on the verge of doing so, but in a less polite manner!

I have the similar issue, hence why I use thumb nails on my profile to let new comers what I can and cannot do.
