maybe i should stop doing art trades and free art...

I allways end up with the same two problems. With free art , as much as the saying goes "the customer is allways right" there not tecnicaly a customer , there not paying. So when ppl are very very picky and ask me to restart a billion times...it annoys me and makes me think there just takin advantage of me for free art...

However...my opinion on this changes when it comes to arttrades or commissions.

I feel an art trade is as much a paying thing as a commission. Ur getting paid in art work so u should be able to tell someone if there is a problem with the picture , or in a lot of cases I've had...a lot of problems. I feel like a lot of the time that ppl just slap somethin together for a trade and call it good. And it will look nothing like the reference sheet of the character id linked. An art trade should be able to be picky about how its done , and it should be done as if it was a paid piece , because the other person is paying with there time and artskills. I've come across far to many ppl who will get pissed off if u tell them somehings wrong on an art trade and they will refuse to fix it , or they will just half ass the picture completly and hardly follow the refs and info at all. I've also done art trades were I never got my half...

All these things makes me wonder if I'm just getting used for my art and if I should do free art and trades anymore. I put my 100% into each art piece I do...but others don't seem to.

Not about any specific person. Just a lot of things I've exsperienced.

Well as far as free art goes, my attitude has ALWAYS been, heres my character, make it surprise me, if its a gift, i have no right to want it to be different

Thats kinda the point of gifts they are given

But as far as, well, commissions if im paying, and such, yea, i kinda want it my way,

i agree with you 100%

hey Little one, others do not understand what you are doing things for them with affection, independent counsel for something not conform to what they want ... many people think that you are doing the design for them for free has the right to want the perfect design ... I think that's wrong, your drawing style is very beautiful ...

and what you do with free or through exchange, is really cool ... these people should be grateful, for there are artists like you who still do a drawing for fun and hobby ... and not by mere money ... or gain.


I am one of these ... if you want to pass me the features of his character that I see what I can do for you small, and continue your beautiful work
