How about some cash?
In the professional world you would be fair to ask that (even though it would be unwise to say it in that way). However here, it makes a lot more sense to politely decline, or even better not respond at all.
@Mrgamer95 you must also please understand that when someone does some art for you, you are not just asking them for the time it took them. You are asking them to give you a skill they spent a long time growing - you're asking for years of hard work and labours of love. Many artists are rightfully offended by the idea that artists just are crazy folk who love to draw 24/7 and will draw whatever you ask, but in reality it is people's livelihoods and main source of income.
Saying all this I hope someone's feeling in the mood to do this for you - maybe if you make it seem like a fun thing to draw instead of a chore to do! :)
