Sometimes I like to be very direct and not hold back exactly what the problem is although I know this technique is not right for everyone.
So with that in mind I would say:

You know, just saying. But if you can be an angel/rock star/superstar and do it for me,
it would soooo nice.
Wow, so amazing and perfect! I am so happy!
Hmmm, is it just me, but it would be beyond amazing if so and so?
Oh silly me, I should have said this at the start.
I know the work looks amazing as it is, but if you feel like it,
please feel free to add so and so. You can get adventurous!
_This style of communication is not what I can work with. _
I create images that are my own artwork and when any client wants
_changes to what I have drawn, it then becomes not only much more work, but also no longer my own creation. _
Based on this, I am not a good match for you. I hope you can find an artist who can better meet your needs. I do apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. I wish you good luck in the New Year.
I know how polite you are, and this is probably too heavy handed for you though. But I usually find that clients are appreciative of direct communication, but if they aren’t, oh well.
catwriter has a much more polite, delicate, message which conveys the same thing. I like that very much.
I chose this direct approach based on the fact that this client keeps reappearing with new accounts, so they would realize you are on to them, and know exactly why you can’t work with them.
