Love your work!!!!
Oh wow, thank you very much. I appreciate the compliments and the feature. Cheers!
You're welcome! It was my pleasure :hug: 
You know, I read some of the previous comments on here before saying anything. I still have the same thoughts. You shouldn't let being inactive or not submitting to groups be an excuse for not having more views. It's not your fault people don't comment more often, it's theirs. I fell in love with your gallery. I was browsing through it and was just thinking..."another skilled artist gone unnoticed cause of stupid anime" You can agree or disagree, that's just the way I see it. Although it helps to submit to the forums and groups, it won't get you the amount of watchers or comments you may be imagining. It's actually far less. This website is run by annoying anime artists and I just needed to say that. I see in the forums noting but anime art and it makes me go insane that it's all people care about. What's even more depressing is you don't have any comments from 2014 yet which just ...omg i could slap an anime artist in the face and direct them to this profile.  grrr...I will watch you cause I'm in the same boat as you. I have lots of ideas but no matter what I do, I don't seem to get the fame I deserve.

What I was gonna originally say: I hate when people ignore the true talented artist online such as you. It makes me want to hack DA and delete all the anime. Cause this site has way too much of it getting in the way of artist's work.

It is in some regards though, if I don't make my work seen by people, I can't expect people to like/comment/etc if they don't even know I exist. Its a bit of both though for sure.
Also you can't really hate on anime in general. When something gets super popular, it breeds a lot of people doing it badly, thats just nature. Personally I see the same in concept art. There's a lot bad stuff out there. And they're are other forums which are less so. is certainly less anime/manga filled.
In the end, a lot people have differing tastes right. Just gotta find somewhere that matches yours.

Anyways, You've inspired to put up all my more recent work and get this shit in shape. So thanks for that (check back soon for a hole dump of work!).
Also keep that passion up, its what will make you great and wanna succeed. Just don't get bogged down in hating yo!
