True story, bro.
This is the truest of stories.
Artist problem #1059250912501681095802485203948106
This is truthful. Why? Because artists think that things are handed to them. So they start getting greedy. They wait until they get, and stuck with, a big amount of followers. Mostly by luring them with requests. They they wait and BAM. The slam down the “Pay for my stupid art”hammer. Most people are hungry and will do anything to get their hands on art they requested. But that’s how others unfollow them. Not because they’re idiots. but because nobody should have to pay for shit like that. Unless your mentioned in the news, stop doing commissions.
Well I’m hungry too, that’s why I do commission, you asshole.
What a prick! Drawing takes fucking time! What happened to ‘getting a job and doing what you love?’ how the fuck can we if no one wants to pay for anything and just expects artists to draw for free?
"Artists think that things are handed to them. So they start getting greedy" you mean non-artists start getting greedy, right?
"Most people are hungry and will do anything to get their hands on-" Have you heard the term “starving artist?”
There is a reason why being an artist is considered a “risky” profession by non-creative people- because PEOPLE LIKE YOU like to cheat us out of the pay we deserve because you like taking talented people for granted, and have no concept of labor or exploitation. Show some respect.
We ask for commissions because WE ARE WILLING TO WORK FOR THE MONEY WE EARN. It’s not asking for handouts. Art doesn’t come out of nowhere, and should be paid as such. Don’t believe me? Watch an art time lapse. It takes time and years’ worth of skill to create a piece. Something that people have went to school and trained for, or trained themselves to do for extensive periods of time.
If an artist deems their skill worthy of pay, then it’s FREAKING WORTHY OF PAY. Don’t throw a temper tantrum like a 5-year-old just because you can’t afford an artist’s work.
If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
