I've always wondered why artists never insist on anything in return for (often time preposterous) requests. Sure for many of us the mere "feeling" of creating something is enough, but even then, evidently seen through the myriad of trade threads here, the mere "feeling" of making a 31/31/31/31/31/31 piece of work is not enough. Undoubtedly there are people who are willing to not only meet, but also freely distribute their creations, but alas, that is as common as a Feebas in the river.
The solution to this abstruse conundrum? Offer us something in return. We understand not all of you have the need/want/money for a commissioned work, but any small incentive is worth exponentially more than a lazy demand. Have one of those perfect trade threads? Why not feature one of our pieces there with some sort of recognition (like a link to our thread; you'll be surprised how many people don't even know about this place), and then ask us for some work, maybe even with one of those perfect 'mons in tow. I assure you that more exuberant (*coughlesscynicalcough*) response might
be in place.
However, if you do insist on being parsimonious about how you obtain you art and wish to perpetuate the impecunious stereotype of artist, at least have the decency to include a sincere expression of gratitude in your (outlandish) demand, despite the fact that we will never get around to doing it.
Nevertheless, if the planets do somehow do
line up on the night of a blue moon and we do fill that request, it would be just wonderful
if you acknowledge that we did something for you (this of course, stemming from the fact that seemingly all artists pine for social acceptance as resultant from unmet expectations, lost potential, and/or father issues in their childhood that they wish not to address and instead manifest in creations and "I do what I want" attitudes; at least, that's what my therapist told me).
The last aside being a piece of farce, if not evident enough.
