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! ~♥


Syaming-Li has started a donation pool!
7,505 / 10,000

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! ♥♥♥

★ The next target will be used to make summer-of-sonic Club a Super Group, as I plan to spruce it up in time for Summer of Sonic 2011! (My page is pretty much covered for now. Thank you so much for your support lovlies!)

[EDIT 25.10.2011] Thank you all so, very, very much! T_T once again, you guys have been super-generous with your point-giving (Like seriously, I barely do anything to deserve it!) and as a result I was able to subscribe to this account's upkeep for a whole extra year! Future point donations will be used for dA-related endeavours until the account needs subbing again; Special thank-yous to big donators Ashentar, Gallifrey-Skaro, tailsic, Cronikx, KeikiKudasai, gurrenlagann29, DanSyron, scarlettwing, and of course everyone else who gave what they could, anonymous or otherwise~! ♥

You must be logged in to donate.

★ ソニックロックスター★
Syaming Li [sigh-uh-ming Lee] definition: Nothing. Li made it up.
"Just another fanartist who loves adventure!"
★ Age :: 27
★ Height :: 171cm (5'7")
★ Weight :: 73.028kg (160.99lbs)
★ Rating :: AWESOME
With his asymmetrical haircut and cool Mangapunk style, Li has been on the Sonic fanart circuit online for 13 years, including a long time on deviantART under the profiles boltstryke and tehnuki. His love for Anime, Sonic and all things SEGA are portrayed in his dress sense as well as in the things he draws. By day, he works as a Functionality Tester. By night, he is a fanartist, working towards several goals. He plans to share the true ethos of Sonic through the medium of art, and strives towards working within the Gaming Industry in a creative capacity. Has the capacity to eat three times his own body weight in junk food, running really fast, and the power to rock out. He also has- like Ryu from Street Fighter - the ability to sleep anywhere.

Known to be ridiculously relentless and driven, especially under pressure. Also known to be quite crazy. He is also responsible for the fancharacter Tempest (formerly BoltStryke), SONIC SOUNDSPEED, SONIC ADVENTURE X and VIOLET DREAMS.

I also run the summer-of-sonic club right here on dA! If you're an attendee, please join!

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  Hobbyist 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  Hobbyist 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.
Zamstrom Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll keep my eyes open whenever you open up, thanks for replying back Dean!
Chenyuxi2012 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
your art look likes in china catoons style.
Syaming-Li Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks I... Think?
Tear-Shiraasan Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Do you do point commissions? :)
Syaming-Li Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I never have. The points to money conversion would mean the points required would be so high, most people's little heads would explode.
