*sigh* I wasn't able to skecth something everyday for inktober like I wanted to (but it was fun and maybe I'll do this again next year). Though I was actually surprises that hardly anyone jumped on the chance to get free art from me. Ether it was because I didn't use the word "free" in my journal or it's because of how I've handled requests in the past.
for those of you who don't know when I first joined DA 10 years ago (I'm old) I actually did requests for people and enjoyed it. But someone took advantage of my kindness and kept asking for request after request like I was their art slave so I stopped doing requests for people and that just really left me feeling bitter about everyone. So when someone I don't even know or/and watch me ask if I do requests I just feel bitter towards that person because they just want to get art from me for nothing. (I would of course reply nicely "no I don't" but I would still feel bitter inside)
I even one time submitted a journal entry just titled "request" to see what would happen. 12 people commented on it and only 5 people actually stop and asked questions about the journal. Everyone else just asked what they wanted me to draw for them not really giving it a second thought.
But the point I'm trying to make is that I'm sorry for how I acted in the past about requests. And also I hope everyone had a happy Halloween
