Regarding art trades.

Thu Dec 13, 2012, 8:59 AM
Sticky here~

This is just some information/mini rant regarding art trades~
Please, take note.

I do not mind art trades at ALL.
As a matter of fact, I welcome them~ Here's what to expect if you art trade with me.
I do art trades on MY time. If we're doing an art trade, I WILL get to it. Admittedly, some will be done quicker than others, some slower than others.
I have a life, I have things that I want to do for myself. I have other important things that sometimes need my undivided attention.
If that's an issue, then that's a problem you'll have to take upon yourself.
Everyone is different.
Just because you previously had a trade with someone who provided you with their end of the deal in a half a day doesn't mean I'm going to.
Do not expect me to be like 'that other artist'. I'm me. I do things my way~

Because this is a shared account, sometimes notes or comments get over looked (and that is rare). So, I do not mind if you send me tons of comments, notes, etc, regarding your trade. I love questions, so feel free to message me whenever. If you're having an issue or are curious, just state it to me. I really don't mind at all (I don't bite hard all the time). I'm a gentle creature~ I promise. I'd rather receive a million questions than to have you assume I'm being an asshole because I haven't done things to your expectations.

Yeah, this is for future reference. On account of me opening trade slots very soon~

LOVE, Sticky.

I like taking trades myself, but I don't do them as quickly as I used to, for various reasons (mainly... quality issues and/or general laziness), but I do get my end out.

It's not just trades with me, it's drawing for others in general. I've been trying to fix that as of late. I do understand where you're coming from about this :)

Taking time is always a good idea. And everyone should always work at their own pace and not be rushed, art always comes out best that way. I had that happen when I was doing request art, which I think sucks even is even HARDER to handle, thankfully it's a choice thing with requests and I was able just to decline after a while and not feel guilty. >.<

But chyeah! I agree and you need to do your thing and take your time on them. Heck I have one myself I have yet to post/even finish for Sambees. Mind you it's super old and before I was active I set it up. But I'm still hacking away to come up with the best possible trade for the artist.

I'm really glad you work at your own pace no matter what anyone says. It's a great quality :heart:

I'd love to participate sometime, I'm just slow...

LOL i love what you said. And thats exactly how i work. My bro payed me to do some drawing for him months ago. He doesnt get artists block x.x or that i have other things to do and that i have to be in the mood to draw. Its especially hard to draw for him when what hes telling me to draw gives me no inspiration. I have to like the art for it to work to unfortunetly. otherwise no matter how hard i try its shit. because i dont feel the need to make it the best it can be like i do when im drawing for myself, because something has inpired me to draw them. Anywho i ranted sorry xD
I look forward to these slots opening up :3
