I've been asked a few times recently whether or not I take commissions and I've taken the time to just publicly say that I dont do them, and a couple of motivational reasons why I don't take commissions. Please remember that these only apply to me and that I honeslty dont mind other people taking commissions, there are just my personal reasons.
 
    Most prominent reason that I dont take commissions is that I dont want drawings to feel like actual work. I do a full-time study in a university and I have a part-time job to fund it, partially at least. If I would start to ask money for my drawings. It would add quite a lot of pressure to finish the commishes. I know there's also a certain pressure to taking requests, but I feel I can be a bit more leniant with them (not sure if I spelled that right). Also right now I draw to relieve stress from said activities. It helps me relax. 

    Also not sure what I would price my own art at, not even to mention the administrative stuff that comes along with it. I can look at others what they offer for what prices, but it's hard to translate that to my stuff. And besides, there are artists that actually have to live of their art earnings so your funds be'd better off with them. Or buy a nice sandwich once in a while, treat yourself once in a while (that's what I do at least)

    And to finish off requests are practice for me. Some requests ask for things I'd never draw myself and it woud make me think abit harder than draw animals/pokemon standing upright with human shapes. I wouldn't even think about letting people pay for stuff like that. I feel like the experience I gain with these requests is enough to keep me happy.

So I hope I've cleared things up a bit about my opinions on me taking commissions. Again, I'm not against commissions, I just dont like doing them

Hello. the name's Koekoek19. I'm 20 years old and constantly trying to improve what i make. I'm an amateur having taught most of my 'skills' myself. I mostly do anthro art, both pokemon and my own OC's. If I ever say something weird, I mostly say something before thinking about it, which is not always beneficial :|
I don't mind people RP'ing on my pictures, but I will never rp with characters made and owned by others. And please don't spam pictures with rp comments. If it's just the two of you, take it to one of your own pictures.

I use a logitech gaming mouse and Painttool SAI for most of my drawings. I don't own a tablet, since those cost money and I'm not too big on that.

I don't often do mature art on my DA account, though when I find it acceptable, it might appear here. For that go to my FA account. (same username)

Sorry I dont. You may be able to snag a request when they're open again, but I'm not sure when that'll be.

I heard that before ^^

But I don't like taking money/points for my art in the fear that it'll start to feel like a job//obligation, which is what I'm not too keen on ^^;

You've been put at the end of the list, I have about 11 people split across Furaffinity and DA And some have ben waiting quite a bit longer. ^^;

I have been prioritizing sequences, cause they are a heavy workload and hard to combine with school work.
