Well, welcome to the gallery! Everything is (rather nicely) organised into sections, simply use the "Browse Gallery" button to start having a look around!


A little inspiration for the journey. ^_^ A delicate mix of kickass art, fandrawn pieces and other little tidbits I find fun, but all of which you should go look at and enjoy! Spread the love! ~♥

Need to Know Basis!

★ My online portfolio ★

There will be notificiations as to when my commissions open and close via my journals. I'm not sorry to report that I do not do trades, and I do not do requests. I also only gift art people I know and like. (Plus asking me doesn't really make it a gift!) Asking will only result in being rather promptly shot down, so don't feel too bad, you have been warned! It's not rude, it's not mean. You are essentially asking me to give up hours of my time for FREE to make YOU happy. I think it's fair to say that a lot of artists do that enough as it is.

I do not do point commissions either, so if you would like some work, then the only way to do so would be by paying for it in cold, hard, cash.

★Please look out for journals concerning commission availability! ★

Deviation Addition Requests from Groups
If your club has under 100 members or has been around deviantart for less than a year, then it is entirely likely that I will decline your addition request, especially from Sonic groups. There are officially too many clubs and I would only like to see my work showcased in well-established, cared for groups. Not something made that already exists ten times as a claim to fame.

Kiriban Information
Essentially the concept has now been ruined for everybody. There will no longer be Kiribans in the future.

As it stands lovlies~ I'd love to keep this gallery as gorgeous as I've managed to get it with CSS in order to make it presentable for both my fans and prospective clients alike. I do not know at this time if I'm gonna be able to make enough for bills and a sub, so any help in this matter would be greatly, greatly appreciated! ♥♥♥

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 17, 2015, 12:52 PM

Hey guys! Just a few bits and pieces from the last couple of days!

New Journal Look

I couldn't waste the donated Premium Deviant time and not spruce up the journal! Keeping it super minimalist now, don't need hedgehogs batting about the place now, do we? (Or do we?!)

Sonic the Hedgehog Facebook Page Feature

I'm pleased to announce that one of my Sonic pieces was featured on the Sonic the Hedgehog Page! It was MODERN ERA, which I felt was a good fit for submission considering the theme that Sonic Team (excluding Sonic Boom obviously, which wasn't Sonic Team) have going throughout their most recent titles and- imo- a step in the right direction. Just the right amount of old-school and new! It was nice reading (some) of the comments on the Facebook post- most of which were positive- and it hit about 11.6K likes last I checked! This marks the second feature I've had from that page (The first was COLOURS), and I'm pretty happy about it!

MODERN ERA by Syaming-Li

...Which actually brings me to my next announcement...

Redbubble Page

I have started a Redbubble page, for those of you interested in Prints. So far, I've prepped CLASSIC ERA and MODERN ERA only as tests, but if there are any of you who would like to see the other pieces there, please let me know in the comments! You will now be able to access my Redbubble Page from the footer below from now on. This is a trial, let's see how things roll, eh?


I'm also now on Furaffinity again... Again. See, I started the account several years ago due to art thieves, but never used it. Due to my active interest again in anthro, I will be posted again, so please feel free to visit me there, too! Link's also in the footer :3

Commissions [CLOSED!]

Running ahead of schedule. I will also be looking to do another Commission-based LiveStream at the end of the week (Please check Twitter/Facebook for the advance announcement) So I have two spots open now. Here's what to do:
    • Take a look at the price list at this link here. I know, take it in. There's a lot there;
    • Once you know what you want, need a quote or want to ask about services that are not on this list, please e-mail me at[at]gmail[dot]com; There are a few services such as business cards/flyers etc that aren't there yet. (I'm waiting 'til the new site update is complete);
  • First person who places the 50% deposit gets the spot. Any other takers will be notified of when a spot is free. (At my current speed, ETA is ~2 weeks.)
EDIT 19/03/2015: All spots have now been taken. Thank you! ♥

Can't comment on anything the company is working on as that would break the terms of my NDA.

I luv ur Sonic art work. U r one of my favorite artists. I always wanted to know how to digitally draw as a hobby. Do you know any websites that can teach me about or show me to digitally draw cartoons characters, anime characters (Sonic and Friends), comic book characters, and my own characters for free?

Heya! Just wanted to say that I love your Sonic related artworks so much that I featured them in my 'Feature Week Journal,' since Sonic had the highest votes this week. You will find a selection of your images and my opinion of your work beneath on this journal:…
Thank you so much for putting your beautiful artworks on DA and keep being amazing. :heart:

I was just curious to know what the status of Sonic Soundspeed might be. Wasn't sure if it is discontinued or on a back burner. Love your work.

Do you miss the "SEGA!" scream?…
Syaming-Li Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Given that there are about a million other pressing world issues that can be used for, that's probably not something I would petition. Cute, though.
CJMoore25 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014
I had nothing better to do.
Zamstrom Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Do you still do commissions? Can't find the link for the post you blogged about it last on here. I'll have to keep a close eye for the next time you open up...if I was to want a commission done I want the best of the best to draw/work on it which is you aha.
Syaming-Li Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I am working on a compromise at the moment, as I will be needing some extra income whilst i clear this backlog. I will be updating tonight (hopefully), failing that, tomorrow.
