Even if you're not an artist, or you don't take commissions, imagine for a moment that you are and you do.  

If you were to accept a commission from someone and they were directing you to draw a substandard piece, what would you do? Maybe they were insistent that you change part of the anatomy that is correct to something that is incorrect (for example, perhaps they are insistent that one of the legs would look better turned or bent in a direction a leg just can't bend, or something similar that isn't a stylistic thing, but an anatomical impossibility.)  


In short, it is a request that would make the drawing look bad and incorrect, but the commissioner wants it anyway.  

What would you do?  


Would you do it because the customer is the commissioner and it is what they paid for, or would you refuse?  We must face the reality that every piece we do, whether we intend for it to be or not, is part of our portfolio, and we do not always have the opportunity to explain any background information about a piece.  It is possible someone could see this art you have done and think you are a bad artist, rather than understanding the commissioner wanted such an image.  And that can hurt business.  So what would you do?

Just an interesting question I've been mulling over for several years now and I'm curious what other people would do or what their thoughts would be on the situation. :)
