has anyone else ever been drawing something, and expected it to especially wow your audience for whatever reason (for me its p much always huge pieces im spending lots of time on), but then it ends up doing just the same, or even slightly worse than other shit you draw??

you’ve come to the right place to fix that! post pieces that that happened with n talk about them too if u want! please put nsfw under a spoiler



for me it was this one! i did a LOT of new things in and thought it ended up looking super impactful, really WOWs you n shit, but on all platforms its been.. pretty average. especially low on here since OCs usually dont do as well as canon

Can’t say I ever really expect much from any of my work. Kinda just post it and then just move on.

Pinkie is Best Princess
(NSFW)
My first NSFW image ever uploaded to Derpi is the only one with most downvotes (not counting peeking Downvote OC, which has more downvotes, but are done for purpose). I’m not sure if is it downvoted because of Pinkie’s vulva being off-model, or because her vagina is colored red that resemble blood for someone.


I was quite depressed after that reception until I got a PM to try again. So I uploaded the second NSFW pony art and was received better than the first one.

Perfectionist.
Confirmed my suspicions that I should not post training and especially sfw pics since uploading them turns out to be a big waste of time with absolutely no feedback.

i agree!! this is awesome omg, the ratings dont reflect how cool this is. its really unique too, i dont see things like this often, and the whole peeking-out shit makes it extra eerie

yknow.. weird thing. i wasnt expecting these to do GREAT, but i was expecting the group all together to do better than the seperate files of each pony.. since idk i just imagine group pics are more impressive and interesting to look at




but they DIDNT! right now theyre around the same as most of the seperate files, but they took a lot longer to get there than just the seps, and still arent doing much better.. maybe its the time i uploaded, or maybe its just that having so many characters means a lot of clashing colours?
or maybe most votes are obtained from thumbnails?? so if something isnt easily seen from a thumbnail, its less likely to be voted on
