Your recent post showing Bazooka can step up made her markings look kinda like eyelashes to me. So I hope you don’t mind this rough sketch birb.
!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Seriously, people drawing my birds is my FAVORITE thing that ever’d. Art is better than anything. And this is ADORABLE. Ah, I’m so happy to see people do art of Bazooka!
how many of us, as children, have had creeping thoughts of “i think i have a crush on somebody of my own gender” or “i wish i were the other gender” and dismissed them so swiftly and so effectively because those ideas were unnatural and unconscionable that they never had the chance to grow into our identities? how many more of us, when finally told from childhood that queerness is a real and good option, will be queer and will love it?
This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph.
Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.
And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.
People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.
Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.
I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.
And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.
That’s why I ask people for ‘prompts’ not straight up requests.
