Getting started

Going to try setting up entries with themes, to be updated as more artwork of the same theme is done. To make it easier to find all images of something at once. I might have to rearrange it.

EDIT: I'm making pairing centered entries for the characters I know I'll be pairing up a lot, romantically or otherwise. Meaning that any interaction between those characters as focus of a picture will end up in their respective entry. Interpretation is entirely up to you as the viewer, regardless of my intentions when drawing.
(Adult artwork will get its own entries.)

Pointers /tips on how the site works very appreciated. XD I'm probably going to bumble around for a while before I figure it out.

If DW keeps its promises, I could see myself making it one of my main bases, as it were. My first impression is quite solid. I hope they get their own image hosting up and running with time. Either way, it looks like a good place for writing.

I'm going to see how well it goes to host the images on Tumblr and link from there. Tell me if there's problems, and I'll have to think of something else.

I also don't know if it's better to keep entries public or not. The stuff I post so far has been posted elsewhere publicly already, so I guess I'll keep that public on here, too. Some stuff may be restricted to the "access" list though.

Sonic characters gender bent

Hoo boy, here we go. Let's see if I get this right. Bear with me.
(I can't seem to find a function for placing images under a cut; is there such a thing?)
EDIT: using cuts until I can figure out how to make images appear smaller. /EDIT

So I was thinking I'd make themed entries like this, and when there's something to add, I'll add it + notify of update. To make for less individual entries, and so people can track just one entry if that theme is interesting.

Childrens-book-y stuff

Bits of my art that resemble illustrations for children's books. And are frequently practice for that.

Life is an adventure

There are no obstacles, only different types of spring boards. If you can’t swim, walk on water.

Sonic warps my perspective on things.
At least one character outline says that despite the fact he can’t swim, he loves the oceans more than anything in nature. I just love the notion he would gladly trade his safety for the thrill of being there; that he would view his ”handicap” as nothing but another challenge, maybe even consider the risk part of the beauty of it.

And here, he’s with friends; if he lost speed, they’d hold him up. I picked the South Island crew because another thing that inspires me about Sonic is his loyalty to his friends. These guys were the first bunch of them, and we don’t really see them anymore. But the aforementioned outlines also say he keeps coming back to South Island, making it the closest thing he has to a home - which means he goes back to see his first friends, no matter how many he gains around the world.
