Torakun Comics: Draw Me Please! by torakun14 Torakun Comics: Draw Me Please! by torakun14
Yeah maybe for you, it's just a freaking drawing, but for us artists, it takes a lot of our time, energy, sleep and even our social life just to finish one. People always underestimate us by wanting our drawings for free. It's our profession, our job, it's like asking a doctor to treat you for free, a chef for free food, blah blah blah it's not like we have magic powers that enable us to make art in a minute, it takes us hours, even months (I'm not even exaggerating). We eat, sleep, and eat, and eat, and have bills to pay too! To make it short, we are human too just like the others. So please understand where I'm coming from =3= That's all, thank you very much! =w=)b

I agree with you, if you love drawing as a career you can't do it for free and I hate it when someone goes up to me and ask if I can draw the person, especially if they don't like how they came out on the drawing or rush me --_--
but yes! I agree! heck I'm working on a drawing that I've made since last year!!! last year!! and I ain't even halfway finished OTL

Yeah, people keep forgetting that some artists are doing this as a job, so we need to get paid and when telling them that, they start up a hissy fit.

I understand this but I'm too ashamed to ask for money .///. I kind of... want to wait. I don't know, maybe until I get better or something. My family thinks this is stupid, but I'm still going to school and I'm just... ashamed. :/

DON'T BE ASHAMED! If you are doing commissions and someone start complaining and whiny about it, tell them to go and get someone else to do it or do it themselves. They should learn that artists have a job too.

I completely get this. People ask me all the time to draw them stuff and I don't have the time because of school and job related reasons. Sometimes they still don't get it. I'm glad someone else shares my problem.

I was surrounded by kids who wanted me to draw alot of things. Ofc I drew it for free, since it wasn't that big of a deal. Then one day I made a joke and said I want 20 dkk for each drawing.. Believe it or not.. They actually did bring money to the school xDD

It was more for fun, cause I never knew what to draw. And they would tell me what to draw and ask if they could keep it xD
And I didn't really care much, so ofc I would let them keep it.
One day tho. One of them had birthday, she had asked me so many times if I would draw a wolf (I can't draw animals) so I did my best that day to draw a Wolf, snuck into her classroom (meaning I disturbed her class) gave her the drawing and ran out. I swear I've never seen her smile for that long xDD

I like drawing what I want to draw, not what people want me to draw :)
And just like what I said, this is my job so asking for a payment is necessary. (How will an artist like me can survive if I wont..) I'm talking about professional work here. 
I dont like to waste my time (I can use that time for taking a rest or doing something productive),  Im not doing charity (well.. I can draw something for a real charity though...)  Im a busy person you see.. ^^;
