Amateur Artists Describe The Most WTF Thing They've Ever Been Commissioned To Draw
Hero Images/Getty Images

Part of being a freelance artist means you take the jobs that come your way. Sometimes it also means working for an enterprise or individual who you may not support or agree with, but if it keeps the lights on for one more month, who are you to argue? Then there are those times when you're commissioned to make something that goes TOO far, that's too weird, or maybe it crosses the line legally, and that's when you put your foot down.

WARNING: Strangely NSFW.


Reddit user, u/swadextra, wanted to really open wide that can of worms when they asked:

NSFW artists of reddit, what's the worst thing you've been commissioned to draw?

In The Name Of Jupiter, Stop.

I'm not a NSFW artist or even an artist anymore but when I was in high school someone on Deviantart requested that I draw Sailor Jupiter turning into a jack in the box.

I uh, politely declined.

Drown, Baby, Drown

I was once asked to draw one of the squid girls from splatoon erotically drowning to death in a maid costume. From that point on I had to add "drowning/suffocation" to my list of rules of commissions I will not accept.

That's The Appropriate Response

When I drew a lot online in high school (all SFW art, mind you), someone came to my request stream and asked that I draw Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon getting dressed for the day.

They were very specific about the type and color of underwear he was wearing. I didn't realize it was an inappropriate request until I had started the sketch and they kept asking me to change the pose to be further and further into the beginning stages of getting dressed. Disconnected my wifi so I could pretend the stream died.

Nope nope nope

But...Why?

Remember that scene from the live action [Scooby Doo] where [Scrappy Doo] grows all big.

That.

That's One Breast Too Many

Furry (sometimes) artist here.

I've had people ask me to draw six breasts before. For some reason that is too weird for me. Also had a particular individual wanting me to draw his villian OC killing some good guys. That I could not do. He still likes to talk sh-t about me after 4? years.

THIS Is Your Marketing?

I was asked to design a tee shirt showing a winding road going into the naked crotch of a prone, spread eagled woman and on that road would be a guy riding a motorcycle. This was for a company that specialized in motorcycle accessories. I spoke to to the guy's wife and told her to tell him no and I wouldn't do any art for his company.

Taffy, You Say?

Someone once asked me to draw their character with a LOT of foreskin. They showed me examples including art of some pretty disgusting looking, It was pretty gross and honestly I had to say no.

I barely do commissions either way but that had to be the weirdest kink someone's asked me to do, luckily I pretty much never get anything of the sort normally.

I like uncut as much as the next guy but that was a level I never thought existed.

Thou Shall Not...Ugh...

I was commissioned to draw Gandalf using a staff as a butt [sic] plug... I really don't need to provide any more detail on what my reaction was

Reddit is one if those internet things that either you totally get, or you absolutely don't.

To some, it's a ridiculous echo chamber of people who live to egg one another on.

To others, it's a supportive community with its own sort of rules, culture, superlatives, and even language.

Whichever camp you fall into, there's some stuff you need to know if you're gonna survive.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.
