It's that time of year, again! X-mas is just around the corner, and as I do most years, I'll be giving out art freebies to random Gaians.
Interested in receiving art from me? I generally do not take specific requests, but here are a few things that may up your chances of receiving one of my random freebies:
* Post a thread in the Art Freebies forum.
I tend to spend a great deal of time there looking for avatars to draw, because people there are generally actually seeking art.
* Don't have a ******** of an avatar.
Accessories can be well done, or they can make you look like a walking shitpile. I don't like walking shitpiles, so I don't draw them.
* Don't be a dickhead to people in your thread or make a lot of demands of artists.
I tend to favor simple, "Draw me!" or "Draw my av!" type requests over ones that are specific about style, pose, particular accessories, etc. Suffice it to say, I also favor requests by people who are polite over those who are bratty or trolly.
* Allow people to view your Equipped List.
I am not big on people hiding their Equipped Lists from other viewers. I use the Equipped List to give me a better idea of what the individual items look like when I'm drawing them. If you absolutely must
hide your Equipped List, or if you want a different av drawn than the one you're currently using, it helps to provide a TekTek of the avatar so I (and other artists) can click on it and see the item list.
I also like to receive art gifts! If you are looking to practice and/or want to give me gift art in return for art I've done, feel free to draw whatever my current av is at the time.
