My gallery is very mixed bag, but that's due to the fact that I lack talent with a pencil and have to make do with what I do have. Inside you will find literature, cosplay, digital coloring, photography, comics, photocomics, and all manners of silliness.

Random from My Characters by Other Artists

Gift art and commissions of my original characters, all from wonderful artists! And yes, I'm aware that most of the characters in here are wolves. What can I say? They're my favorite animal.

Million-dollar-idea: A coconut opening device sculpted to resemble a swallow.
I bet Schrodinger was a dog person.
Just borrowed "The Wolf Gift" by Anne Rice (haven't read anything of hers previously) from the library. Hopefully this will help fuel inspiration for my WIP Samson Phoenix novel.
If I had a pet raptor, I'd name her Buttercup.
Drinking a pina colada from my MODOK mug and wondering if this is a sign that my life is awesome or spiraling out of control.

I'l give you the same advice I give everyone else: You've got to give attention to get attention. DA is a networking site, which means you have to put yourself out there so people can find you. You can't just post your stuff and sit around waiting for people to find it. Withdrawing is only going to exacerbate the problem. Comment on other peoples' stuff. Show interest in them. Engage them. Leave impressions that will show people how interesting you and your art is.

As for more specific advice, you need to start expanding outside of Sonic. You have some definite talent, but you're never going to develop it if you lock yourself into aping the very specific style of a franchise. There's nothing wrong with Sonic, I enjoyed the original games myself, but the fandom is a bad joke here on DevianArt. No one takes its fans seriously any more. That's why I linked you to that video.

I know is a public forum and she has no control, I was trying to be silly :lol: Hence the 'exit to the left'. Lack of tone of voice makes it difficult, though ^^;
