Dont ask artists for free art you scrubs
How to waste your talent while losing your friends all at once because all you care about is money: A tumblr guide on how to be a cunt to those who admire you.
Imagine if the Mona Lisa was a commission and s/he had no money.
the mona lisa was a commission you shitshill, that’s how artists make a fucking living. it’s how we get the money to pay for things we need, because we don’t want to spend all our time working in a shitty job instead of doing things that are important to us, like working on personal projects or spending time with people we like. by thinking that you deserve free art is basically telling them “your time and skill isn’t worth anything but my personal enjoyment!” and if someone only wanted to be friends with me for free art, i don’t want that friendship because that sounds like an awful friend. artists are people with lives and often art is our only source of income and if you really admired us you would understand and support that.
jesus fucking christ “imagine if the mona lisa was a commission” rolls head back and laughs
"imagine if the mona lisa was a commission" AHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH
Inb4 ‘wasting talent’ equates to not drawing everyone who asks for a drawing.
I’m sorry? I didn’t start building this talent so other people could abuse it.
I draw my friends when I want, and sometimes thats a lot! Sometimes I draw fanart for people i’m not acquainted with but who I think are rad as hell.
You will get art from me if and when you get art from me. Not when you just blatantly ask.
