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! ~♥

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.

Commission Spots & Works Log

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! ♥♥♥

★ 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.

Where the hell have you-

...Probably best not to explain this in great detail right now. There's a lot to do right now. The short story is: I haven't been in the best place with my art, and I have spent a LOT of my early and mid twenties not living life, so I decided that I would for a bit. At the same time, I have been battling against my artwork and just where I'm going and what I'm doing with it to the point I hated it, so doing anything was extremely hard. Alas, some things have been left for far too long, and they need to be fixed. All I can say is that I am very fucking sorry.

You still owe me a commission. Where the hell is it?

Okay, here's the skinny; I am still willing to do your commissions. In fact, I will be sending a mass message to all remaining clients, as I tried to cover this last year and it just wasn't happening past late January. In addition to this, if you put a deposit down and still have money outstanding to pay me to release said commission, then you will not owe me any additional money. Just as a thank you for being so fucking patient with me.

So here's what's going to happen;
  • To those I owe, and still want their commission: the conditions of the commission will stay the same, but if you have any updated references, please send them to me or at the outlined address in the message. The advantage to this now is that your commission should be of better quality than when I was supposed to have done it in the fucking first place;
  • To those I owe, and do not want their commission: if you can remember, please send me your PayPal details so that I may schedule you a refund at the earliest convenience, I will let you know personally when I plan to do this.
  • To those who are still waiting for me to open up commission spots: Brace yourselves. I would like to state that all commission info on this account currently is incorrect, and I do plan on getting around to fixing it at some point. To see what sort of budgeting you'd be looking at, please see for more information. If you are confused as to what you're looking at, please e-mail me at the address provided OR note me on deviantART and I will quote you.
That's it.

As for other types of art, we'll just have to wait and see.

Actually, that isn't it. There's one more thing...

I haven't been here for quite a long time. I actually wouldn't even count the beginning of last year, personally, seeing as I was 'back' for a grand period of a month before I realised that I actually hated absolutely everything about my artwork. But, I have checked in over the last few month and they sheer number of you who still comment and favourite my stuff is still fucking astounding, and I do quietly appreciate every single one of you. I have inadvertently pulled a dick move making some of you wait for so long, and I am definitely not like this by nature. I do realise that if it wasn't for the support of you guys, I probably wouldn't have been as big as I... Erm, was. Haha~ So from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Trying my hardest to be a better and happier person from now on.

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?

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.
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!
