I'm with Orn on this one. How in the world did all of you fall under the assumption that doing something for exposure is worth less than commission. Really? You are all surely users of not only the internet but more importantly Newgrounds. You should all know what can come from a playful venture paid or unpaid. Do you think little Tom was being paid by someone to make Pico? Where the fuck is the humble merit of independence that places like this are suppose to be renowned for?
In my opinion substantial exposure is worth ten times more than the few petty dollars you are going to receive from drawing some kid's Sonic "OP". I met good old Koroboy because he drew shit for me. FOR FREE! And to be blunt that guy can carry more weight with markers and paper than half of the people here can handle with photoshop or illustrator. I was a fan of his comic long before he came along and offered a gesture as humble as drawing some dumb character he found interesting.
And by all means, you don't have to be the mother fucking santa of art. If the proposal looks unappetizing to you then just stay the away and keep your mouth shut. Unless any rules are directly being broken or the user is being an utter cunt about their request. Even in that case then let the thread wither and die rather than bumping it up with your smart remarks. If it escalates past that then contact a mod, it's easy. And by god if you are going to be an elitist dick at least be tasteful about it.
It's so difficult doing a chore as easy as typing out text and making it look pretty, but when the occasion comes to troll hiryuGouki's Pokemon thread everyone is in the spirit to draw stuff for free. So just..stop. Please? Not drawing perverted Pokemon of course, I mean stop being elitist dicks. Kay.
