I really love the level of detail you put in, too, Unit42; she looks awesome  smile

Is she an original character or from the show (sorry if that's a dumb question, but I know next to nothing about "The Simpsons")?

Unfortunately,  no.  I am working on a killer promo picture based on these practice sketches, though.   Leela's accident where she and Bender are merged takes place after her honeymoon with Fry and the finished picture is going to be a bit emotional.

Why?  Especially after drawing a lot of great art in that style?

Perhaps you just need a break. It would be a pity for the fan community to lose someone who draws fascinating scenes like that.

Matter of fact, I'll make you an offer. If you ink it, I'll colour it. How's that?

I don't think the resolution is high enough for me to do it justice. frown

I saw your explanation on DA as to why you're quitting drawing. Sorry to hear you're not doing too good right now.

What I would implore you to do though, is not destroy or delete what you have done. Put the pencil works in a drawer, and archive your files. Don't do something you may regret in a few years.

I hope you find what you need.

Stay frosty.

Considering my big, emotional mouth has again ruined my friendship with MissFuturama to the point she deleted her FB page, and the lesser problems of me feeling like absolute shit over this whole DA thing, I'm not destroying any of my computer files, but I'm deleting the account.

To me, http://simpspin.deviantart.com is now dead.  The only thing left is waiting for the twitching to stop.

Uhmm... yeah... that all sounds pretty intense but in the words of the prophet of the future Amy, "Why?" It sounds like some time away from it wouldn't be a bad idea if you're getting, what sounds like, that intense about it. Sounds like you set some high expectations for yourself but didn't have the experience to know if they were reasonable expectations. If you find doing art fascinating and you find yourself doing it for hours on end that's great. But some of what you mention sounds like a descent into obsession which isn't very good for you. Almost sounds like a manic cycle of work, work, work - argh! nobody cares!(why should they?) - destroy, destroy, destroy. I don't think you should pull the plug on what you've done, it's good work. There's nothing about fan art that should push someone into a Van Gogh scenario. For gosh sakes do something else for a while, go outside, veg. with the TV, talk to actual people, even art with different subjects. Stop putting yourself behind your own 8-ball.

P.S. I don't think Deviant Art is the place you want to go to get noticed in numbers. It's a great archive but it's pretty crowded and is very broad in scope. Message boards like PEEL and other show specific sites will do a lot to build your reputation for fan art among fans of specific shows. I didn't know you were "out there" until you posted here on PEEL. And, if you want view hits, and you're old enough, do some adult-themed art. You'll get lots of hits and lots of flames but you may wind up developing a tougher hide which wouldn't be all bad. Just avoid getting suckered by flattering or manipulative people that want you to do stuff for them for free or do things the way they want it so they can be happy while you do all the work.

Really?

Examples for your stuff:

http://simpspin.deviantart.com/art/Jess-Pin-up-2-VERSION-2-0-375636902
http://simpspin.deviantart.com/art/Fireflies-2013-Remaster-358775995

Over 600 views each, over 50/60 faves each.

One example from MissFuturama

http://missfuturama.deviantart.com/art/Draw-This-Again-Simpsons-Kids-375261875

Over 500 views, over 70 faves.

About 10 faves more, about 100 hits less. These images are not really that far away from each other in terms of viewer/fave quantity.

Also, about theimportance of "number of views/faves"
When entering the search term "Leela" into deviantart, THIS images comes up first.
http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Leela-BE-44476460

It has more than 50.000  views and over 700 faves.
By your logic, that image -based on the views- must be nearly hundred times as good as your stuff, done by someone who has much more spare time to practise drawing than you or MissFuturama. But I sincerly hope you do not REALLY consider that pic better/more skilful than your works.

Heck, none of my deviations ever surpassed the 50 fave mark (not even the 40 one).
But even I would not take anyone remotely serious who claims that Leela pic to be better/more skillful than all of my drawings.

You do your work for yourself, you draw your own style.
The only views and faves you should care about ARE THOSE FROM YOUR OWN ARTWORK.
Imagine one of Missfuturama's pics just having 100 views, and suddenly going up to 1000.
What does that mean to you? Your artwork stays the same, wether her pic got those 100 or 1000 views. Wether the public considers her pic the greatest thing ever, or the worst piece of crap ever: Neither of those extremes (or any opinion in between) will affect or change your art.

Also, if you just wanted to increase your view numbers:
You could take random screenshots, and simply increase Leela's (or Amy's, or whoevers) bust size. The No1 Leela pic shows it's an efficient way to get hits. By uploading those pics to the right groups (and/or entering the appropriate keywords), those images are likely to get more views and faves than Viktorias. If those numbers are all that matters to you, you should do that.

I am only suggesting this strategy because I am 99,99999% sure that you will NOT take that course of action. Why not, when it's eligible to create lots of hits? After all, it was already done by one guy who managed to surprass Viktorias fave count by the factor 10?

So it seems that views/faves are not really the only criterium mattering to you.
Think about it wink

So, and after that verbal kick in the butt to get you moving, you will stop complaining. Go to a punching ball, hit it repeately REALLY hard should you be in a bad mood, get a sixpack (or two, or three, or any alcoholic beverage)....and then get back to your drawing board! smile

Oh yeah, she's good and a natural talent too. Welcome to the art world. That's the way it is, not very different than the Duh Vinci Code - there's always somebody better. In the pros it's even more so. But why do care so much about it? Especially if you're doing it recreationally. Also, she's new and the interwebs haven't gotten bored with her stuff yet and used her up yet. I keep getting the sense that you're expecting more from the fan art world than it has to give, lighten up.

One last thing, I've rescanned the better shaded works from 2001-2003 & 2009 and compiled them into this gallery on DA:

They're at 8x the resolution of the old dial-up size.
