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

I ♥ Pinkie Pie
(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.

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

Perfect Pony Plot Provider - Uploader of 10+ images with 350 upvotes or more (Questionable/Explicit)

So I'm not sure if I picked the right time, or the image wasn't that good, but I barely scratched 68 upvotes on my first SFW image. And an image that took me plenty of effort too.

No downvotes but I definitely feel underwhelmed. Was hoping for a better reception.

@SilverTongue
No, you're still trying to hotlink. !url! is used to create a link to an image (JPEG, PNG, GIF, etc.) outside of Derpibooru, but inside, use the >>number syntax. Type this:

>>2151358p

And you will get this:



Notice how the image is clickable and if someone, for whatever reason, filters your artist tag, they won't see the image.
