No, I mean as in... You're not even really offering it, you're giving it to the first person who comments, and they aren't first but they're being all "heyyyy friend! Could I request something too?" like NO

"When someone requests something, you do it and they barely acknowledge it"

This, nnnn. So many wasted hours, so much pain for nothing. I am an artist, I don't just poop out work, it takes time. It's like, I worked on it for you, don't you get it? At least say something about it. *dies*

I get a little bit annoyed when people request stuff when they are not even watching me, like come on. It's pretty rude to go around and beg people you don't even care to watch to draw you stuff ;A; At least give the artist some respect instead of using them like that!  But all of the things you listed above is true.

But I don't really mind people asking, as long as they don't get rude if you say "no" :heart:

Ahh, that's true indeed! Why ask them for free art if you don't even care for their art much?

I see :)

All of these are annoying, but especially the one where you decided to do it anyway but the person barely acknowledges it.

Or people who don't understand the concept of 'I'm fine using up a few minutes of my life to give directions but I'm not wasting hours drawing something for a complete stranger'
