When you take a request, do you feel that you absolutely HAVE to complete it?

Yes. I promised the other person I would, after all!

Hmm yes, but I don't feel like it is as important as commissions or art trades.

Only a little. They're not that important.

No, I can just cancel requests anytime and not feel bad about it. I didn't get anything in return so they can't tell me I MUST do it!

I never ever take requests, ever.

I'm spending MY time, and I'M putting effort into it, for nothing in return. It's not my obligation to do it, I'll do it if I want to. Normally, I won't offer if I'm not willing. If someone(random) asks me for a request, I will often times say no because I don't want that weighing me down, and even if I do complete it, it'll look bad.

Same here.

Yeah, I usually do things in order of importance or when I get them...  If I don't do requests I feel like i'd feel guilty. Although I still have some contest prizes I have to do and I've been procrastinating so much.

I draw requests at my own pace, but I still want to make sure they get done. If I tell someone I'm going to draw something for them, I want to make sure that I'm a man of my word and follow through with what I said. It's not always easy though.

I don't always do them - I make clear to people that it's not a complete guarantee.

I have so many requests that I have to do. The only real way to be sure I'll start it is to get on my case about it :XD: I'm a bit lazy....

:P Though I ALWAYS make sure I do it, I mean no sense getting people's hopes up for naught.

No, not at all. They're not giving anything in return, so I don't really have a reason to have to complete it. Besides, they're not as important as commissions/art trades.

Yes, indeed.

I only do requests in special join.me's like if I get another 50 watchers, and only the people who come get some and if I end the join.me then the event is over. It's mostly first come first serve, or if I see a character I really like.
