And I honestly don’t mean that in a “what the hell, stop bothering me” kind of way, I promise!  I’m genuinely curious to hear what you’d be interested to see me doing with my art.

I’ve been posting stuff online for over 10 years now and have gathered a sizable following (nearly 6.5K here and over 5K on Tumblr) without really, I don’t know, paying attention? Forcing the issue? I don’t actively advertise myself beyond just putting my stuff on personal blogs and accepting features to various DA groups, but somehow you’ve all managed to find me.  My top three tumblr posts have around 30K, 27K and 26K notes respectively, which to me is absolutely insane although unsurprisingly they’re all Sailor Moon re-draws. One thing I’ve never done is ask my followers what you guys are following me for - what it is you like. 

It seems like a pertinent question with the rise in popularity of services like Patreon that allow artists to give their followers things they actually want in return for money outside of commissions. I’m in two minds about Patreon because whilst I think it’s awesome for allowing creative types to earn a living from their art, I find myself filled with selfish thoughts like “I’m missing out on so much cool stuff now because I don’t have the funds to support all the artists I love” - terribly hypocritical as an artist myself, I know, since I totally would have a Patreon if I could. Unfortunately it’s not an option for me to use - at least right now - since I have a full time non-arty job that I enjoy and drawing is really just a hobby that I fit around my personal life. I don’t have the time or resources to put together a full and worthwhile programme of stuff to give back to people who might support me D:

But I digress! Back to the main point of this post: what is it that you want, you guys? I want to know what you’d like to see more of - or less - from me! Consider this to be a bit of market research. 

(Unless you want me to swear less, because that ain’t happening.)

TALK TO ME, PEOPLE!

Was looking at some of my stuff in my favorites, and noticed a lot of your old stuff is in "storage" now

Loving the newest stuff

Yeah, sorry about that. I had a bit of a cleaning spree and decided to store the pictures that I felt didn't really add much to my gallery. I'm all for showing progress but I used to post like, three versions of the same image (sketch, ink and colour), which was a bit excessive! Glad you're still enjoying my work :love: I'll do my best to keep it up!

I originally came here for your Disney fan art, but I love your Sailormoon as well!
