Time flies - two weeks ago were 4 years I'm officially present on DA (I've been here without an account for a couple of years before).
The reason I've decided to join the community back then is to be able to get access to wider variety of works and to be able to voice my appreciation to artists but as time progressed I got more into depiction of my thoughts and ideas through commissions and requests as various works I've seen boosted my own imagination. I even decided to try drawing something on my own despite lacking talent - that lonely attempt is still visible on my main page.
Seeing this moment as a good occasion, I decided to count how much commissions I actually have and it seems I have 118. (There are actually a little more since some of them were not posted for various reasons. Maybe I'll post them myself someday.) If someone had told me four years ago about this I would have laughed. My main theme are characters that basically are stuck or something is stuck to them (it can be jewelry pieces, magical costumes, bondage equipment) and they try to regain their freedom. I don't limit myself only to these situations and vary my ideas depending on artist's interests as well.
I also decided to check out what are the most beloved pictures among my commissions. I think that this means nothing else than how big the fanbase of a certain artist is, nevertheless it was fun to get through older works and see them again.
7 works have reached more than 200 faves, and these are
Enormous 326 faves of picture from alexanderlegrand.deviantart.co… of my characters Ayaka and Yuki in a very uncomfortable and prolonged predicament.
272 faves for a quality colored work of Hatsune Miku being tickled from a talented rj88.deviantart.com/ Just check out those details and light blue color.
258 faves of picture from alexanderlegrand.deviantart.co… of my characters Ayaka and Yuki captured by members of Padaung tribe (ok, I know that they are friendly people but for the sake of commission idea I had to make them more evil) and currently undergoing some modifications while sitting in tight and uncomfy bondage.
244 faves of picture from alexanderlegrand.deviantart.co… of a random girl in an attempt to combine a harem costume with bondage equipment.
229 faves of the last picture from a 5 picture sequence from alenonimo.deviantart.com/ of my characters Ayaka and Yuki who got sealed in magical belly dance costumes because of a careless wish and Alenonimo's genie character's Lumi ability to twist all wishes no matter if she wishes that or not. Intensified by bondage punishment from the school where Ayaka and Yuki study for wearing indecent costumes inside.
224 faves of a 1-page comic from alexanderlegrand.deviantart.co… (again!) of my characters Ayaka and Yuki taking part (they just couldn't refuse ) in a charity gala in his Institut Brin d'Air.
206 faves of the second picture from a 5 picture sequence from alenonimo.deviantart.com/ of my characters Ayaka and Yuki that shows them just after Alenonimo's genie character Lumi twisted their wish and now is being sucked into her lamp because her time outside is up leaving both girls with their new attires.
