And how I'm honestly.....getting sick of them right now. Don't get me wrong, it seemed fun at first, when I had them opened, but once random people come to me and ask if I could draw something for them at random times when I didn't feel like taking them, it honestly started to overwhelm me.

Honestly I'm starting to feel that taking requests has become like a chore now. Drawing stuff that people want you to draw when most of them just can't draw it themselves. It feels like a never-ending cycle of finishing one batch, but then getting another pile of them afterwards. I don't want to sound mean or anything but......I'm just getting sick of it. Especially when it's people who don't even watch or follow me that ask anyway, and when I tell them I only do them for followers, they then watch me JUST so they can make one request and never ask again. It's just so frustrating!

If you want a visual example of how I feel, here's this.
It used to be fun, but NOW... -.- (TM):iconaxel-dk64:

Now does that mean I want to stop.....well, not really. I have been planning on doing commissions in the near future to make some money for a nice change, but I need to log in to my PayPal after so long, and you guys are welcome to ask me for one.......but ONLY when I start taking them. Don't ask them at random, just wait until I feel like opening some slots. And you HAVE to be a friend, watcher or both to make them. Don't be some random guy who'll only watch me to make one and only one. You have to be a fan to make them.

I hope this sounds reasonable to you all.

And to those who'll just use this journal as an excuse to ask for a request, my answer is, NO!

Hi, I'm an aspiring artist and writer. I'm hoping to start a manga-esque graphic novel series about the lives of people with Aspergers Syndrome.

Special Request time.

Can you make a pic about: Misaka Mikoto reacting this? :…
AfroOtaku917 Featured By Owner 3 days ago   Digital Artist
I can. Though I'm probably thinking of saving that for May 2nd. If you know your birthdays with Raildex characters, you'll probably understand why. ;)

AfroOtaku917 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2015   Digital Artist
From time to time. I'm also thinking of doing commissions.
NestieBot Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015
