 So, not too long ago, some one I once worked with for a game studio approached me, and asked me for some concept art work. To my surprise, this person, who has worked closely with artists in the game industry had actually come to me requesting free art. This was a saddening shock. I am used to being asked for free work, as many artists are, but this hit me hard. That some, who one knows what we do, is willing to try to take advantage of us, of me. 

 This is what you are telling a professional artist when you ask for free work. You are not only telling them that their skills are worthless. You are telling them that THEY are worthless. Not only is being repeatedly bombarded with free work requests, disheartening, it is depressing. 

 I'm writing this merely as an attempt to raise awareness. Please, respect your fellow artist. If you see some one's work, and you are in awe of what they do, do not make your first thought, "How can I get some free or cheap work off this person". It's degrading for not only you, but the artist who's work you enjoy.
