Gift art, for me. Just by like, .00000001% hahah
It means a lot to know people have thought of me and figured they're just going to pop up and draw my OCs, and no matter how little effort goes into it it means a lot (unlike a commission, where if they put minimal effort in I feel disappointed and ripped off, even if I like the picture otherwise).
And though I want to give something in return, I know I'm not obligated so I don't stress about it too much hahah.
(((Speaking of art from others, I must say my favorite part of windows 7 is the fact you can have it auto-change backdrops; my backdrop folder is my "art for me" folder <33 :'D)))

I've never gotten fanart, but I hope once my Nuzlocke kicks up that I'll get people drawing my characters. ;w;

Fan Art or gift art, but personally I don't really care if people make art for me or not, but if they do I put it in my 'For me" collection. ^^

I like getting asked to do commissions but it never happens.

Fan art would kill me. XD It would be amazing.

It's not about getting asked to do commissions, it's about receiving a piece you commissioned ;)

There's nothing better than someone sending you a picture that they drew for you! Especially if you had no idea about it, it comes as such a shock and just ahh! :aww:

Even though it only happens once in a blue moon, I like getting random gifts from people. 8D

Requests and stuff like birthday presents are nice too, but for some reason I just like the more random stuff better. :dummy:

It's too bad that I rarely get anything considering the time I spend trying to do stuff for others >w<"

Yeah, indeed it's sad. But yeah, you can never expect to get those things - they're gifts after all, not trades. But I do wish I drew you stuff more often. Dx

That's true, and everyone has their own priorities and whatnot. You can't expect them to do something just because you wish they would. >w>

But why? What have I done to make you feel that way? X3

I think trade part are the best, because I draw something back and it feels better that way - I love gifts of course but I always feel the need to draw something back soon or later.. x')
I don't ask for commissions or requests so.. idk xD I just feel like drawing myself what I want - and if it's not good enough? I work harder XD

Exactly, same here! I know it's a gift and I don't have to draw anything back, but hnnng, it's hard not to feel like you should! ;)
So I picked art trades, too cx

getting art in general is great for me >u<
I especially love gift art though, because the person doing it took their time to draw you art for free and I think that's really sweet and I appreciate it when people take the time to brighten up your day like that.

Yeah, indeed c': I wish I could be less "Oh, I owe you something now" because I personally dislike it when others do that - it's a gift, after all - but I can't help it xD

I would have to stay gift art :/

1: I have never gotten it before(cause I don't have characters for peeps to draw) 

2: I don't need to draw something xD. Like it sounds mean but it takes a lot for me to draw something when I don't have inspiration to do it ya know
