Journal Entry: Thu Dec 6, 2012, 3:38 PM
i've been wanting to address this annoyance for a while. its about feedback--not in general but for things like..the shit I make for people, especially commissions.
Can I just say that it's actually really kind of rude to just..not say anything about the picture I worked on for you? I don't expect much, usually just a thank you will suffice but if it doesn't look the way you want, PLEASE TELL ME. I will not freak the fuck out--I will RE-DO it for you! I keep my art files for at least a year until I delete them, so when I post or give you your picture I usually still have it until I clean out my mom's computer near the end of the year.

I really think it's worse for a commission, because I've had more than one case of me sending a finished commission note only to check the next day and the note was opened and..that's it. Nothing. It's ESPECIALLY essential for me to get commission feedback so I would know that you got what the hell you paid for.

Maybe you might have your own reasons--maybe you checked it and forgot to say anything because you were busy or things along those lines. I get that. But how am I supposed to know?? No response just automatically makes me feel like shit, like I fucked up lmao. I'm almost tempted to just respond the next time someone does that to me. It pisses me off.

And I know others have had this problem too. And it's really sad. The least you could do, if you comment on nothing else, is comment on something that was made for you.

I know how you feel, not so on the commission part but the fact that you'd like some feed back on your art and for someone to give an opinion on it, see if you are improving or not, see what you like or don't like.

I get more favs than anything....personaly in my mind it drives me fucking crazy that out of 300 watchers I have barely anyone comments on my stuff. Now if you're in college or busy with real life stuff it's understandable but everything else just drives me nuts.

I mean they can't take a minute out of their time to say anything.

I agree wholeheartily with you on this issue.

You took the time to make sure the picture is done nicely for someone and they don't say anything? If you ask me, that's pretty asinine.

I dunno, I ALWAYS comment on stuff that was made for me and say thank you because the person easily could've decided to draw something else or said no to you. I know a few people who don't comment on commissions or art trades but I guess people have their own mindsets >_>

Yea same here, it still mystifies me why some think that it's perfectly fine to make an artist wonder if they even did a good job or not...T_T

I have never done LOTS of commissions, just maybe a couple of icons and chibis for points, it's still work for others, and well these were just A FEW, incredibly in a few of these some I never got a comment saying If they liked it or If I should change something. The commissioner just faved it (Maybe just because the work was for that person) Indeed you feel like you screwed it up If you don't get feedback, I feel you girl!
