Well, APPARENTLY all everyone wants to do is offer opinions on how I'm wrong to be asking people for this so I'm done. Further comments will be ignored. If you want to draw something, check out my contest if it's still going on, or note me and let me know and I'll stick you on a list of "Artists I'd Love to Commission Someday".
That's an extensive amount of work for nothing more than a "I promise to appreciate it!". :/
You might want to bring something to the table to offer, or just find a really gullible artist with zero talent to do it because truthfully that's about the only way you will fill your quota.
~siantjudas has the right idea. You're asking way too much of people who probably don't have the time for a REAL commission, let alone someone asking for a 12 person full body photo for no more than a pat on the ass to compensate. I find it downright insulting that you'd even ask such a thing. Mean as that sounds, a lot of REAL artists would agree.
I don't believe I asked for full scale, blown out drawings. A simple shading cell style would have been fine, or heck, no shading even! That is not a lot. I am not asking for detailed backgrounds or multiple characters in one drawing or having them done in 24 hours. So congrats to you for being insulted and feeling the need to make sure I knew that, but you know what? Some people might WANT to have something like this to do for various reasons, and maybe they're not the best ever artist, or maybe they just want the practice/extra deviations/beef up their artist portfolio/whatever, or maybe they don't generally do something as simple as a drawing with no background very often and find it relaxing. Or hell, maybe they're just good people and want to help.
Hey, the level of detail isn't really relevant when you're still asking for such a large project. Just because YOU don't think it should take long doesn't mean that it WON'T take long for certain artists.
You really shouldn't be so surprised and pissed off when it was you asking for people to go out of their way to do this giant favor for you for free. I'm sure if someone asked you to write a full-length novel for them for free, you would probably expect something in return for your efforts. You didn't even offer any sort of compensation, which is mostly what has people so pissed off at your naivety.
Not to mention, what if you don't even pull through on whatever you're writing and you basically extorted free artwork from some kind artist all for it to benefit neither of you? There is more than just yourself to consider here.
So you can "be done" all you want, but people are entitled to disagree with you. Myself included. So don't keep acting so upset when you brought it down on yourself, intentionally or not.
