Drawing seriously since 2013
No wonder I got a client from DA and FA but not Twitter. I've been handing out requests on Twitter left and right, hoping to garner more attention and potential clients, but nothing yet.This is only sometimes true. Requests won't give any more exposure than just drawing normally if you always respond to requests by the same people, for example. They also won't necessarily help you practice different things if the requests are all for the same type of content you're already drawing. Lastly, doing free requests is a downright bad idea if you're also doing commissions or planning to do them in the near future. The old adage that you're only worth as much as you cost is true; if you're regularly giving people art for free, people will assume your art isn't worth much.
