But for me, it's actually pretty annoying.
When I'm asked something along the lines of "Hey, I gotta hire you to draw a tattoo for me and I'm really into old Spider-Man. Do you think you could draw me as Spider-Man but can you make it look like Steve Ditko drew it??"
Or, "Can you draw my dog but can you make it look like Charles Schulz drew it?" All I hear is the message that apparently I'm not good enough, drawing as myself.
I don't know, am I too sensitive?
