Requests, gifts, trades and collabs

These are things people ask too often, not just to me, but to artists in general. Free art.

As a general rule, if you don't know the artist on a personal level, don't ask. It's rude. In fact, even if you know them, asking them for free art isn't very tasteful. If they're your friend and you have a birthday coming up, or it's some holiday where you exchange gifts, than it's a reasonable request.

"Hey, instead of buying some ugly sweater this year, can you draw me something?"
Perfectly acceptable interaction. (You might not want to mention the ugliness of the sweater they got you the previous year though.) Other than that, let them bring it up.

So I'm unfortunately sitting it out until I can draw digital again. And it's not like I haven't been doing anything. I've been trying again and again to draw the same page... with no success. I'll keep trying though.
In the meantime, I'll still be releasing some of my other stuff I've been doing (Tumblr, Deviantart and my blogsite) and I'll try to be less picky …
