actually im glad you said this because i have a buddy and like when i met him he couldnt draw or anything and i had never done commissions before so he got art of his fursona for free and a lot of it because nobody else really asked me to draw
but then id start doing commissions and he would come to me like 'yo can you draw this for me thanks' and i would feel bad if i didn't do it, but i would feel even worse that they would seem to take priority over paying customers. and like he's a nice guy 'cause he's actually my friend and not all this stuff was for him, it would be for his brother's birthday or his rp partner who can't draw either, but if i made him pay for all the art i've ever done for him it would be in the hundreds of dollars....
I know. So I just avoid saying anything to do with requests or things. Or there was this situation where a person brought me a sub and then demanded art for it. After I made a post saying 'do not buy subs for me pls do not have time between work to draw things in return'. which I did for them anyway but still. urgh.
Saying no can be pretty tough when you're not used to it? Aha I've still not gotten a hang of it really. It's easy to get passive aggressive with people when you're irritated about it but don't want to seem like a total ass. whops
There needs to be a class dedicated to that. No not at all ! It's funny because when people come to expect things from you they stop appreciating it and then they get upset when you don't give them what they want. Seen that firsthand a million times Social behavior can be rull dumb.
YES omg, i have been called Mean before by a 13 year old, she DEMANDED art from Griffsnuff cause it was her birthday, Tina said to her she was busy and she dosnt know her so why should she make her something and the 13 year old flipped it and called Tina a bully :I
another young person saw it mad her a "I'm sorry griffsnuff is a jerk" gift i commented on it saying she was scammed into making art for the girl, how do you know its even her birthday. Then I was the bully XD
i see it all the time though like wow :I .... just wow XD chuck lets run away :3
Oh god. YES. This happened a lot to me, recently. Guilt tripping makes me sad.. Sometimes people aren't like super-strong or like that enough to say no so they end up getting cheated. It's horrible stuff.
I also dislike over complimenting it gets uncomfortable [just so they can get art outta ya.]. ): Why don't they just earn money to get what they want instead making the other feel bad? oh god...
i'd fucking pee everywhere let me. write up some dumbass description of him because i have 0 recent drawings of alex besides that shitty sketch i did where you cant even tell what is happening i neEED GROSS CANNIBALS OKAY i need them
