How do you get so many comments on every picture you've made? Is it luck?

I'm pretty sure about half of the comments in the numbers you see are usually me responding to people, haha. I've had really long discussions in the comments of some of these, and that boosts the tally a lot. But other than that, I would say it's because a lot of my drawings are fanart of popular things and I've been around for a while; if you look at, say, my Neopets doodles you'll see that I get far fewer comments on those than on Zelda illustrations. I think getting responses from people tends to come down to a combination of exposure (people actually finding your work in the first place), your own community participation (making people want to interact with you), and drawing things that elicit response (whether it's because they're well-drawn, funny, meaningful, controversial, or just in some way speak to people or reflect what they like).

Fair or not, it's a lot easier to get attention with fanart because people are already invested in the characters and universes of established work. I try to draw scenes that portray events or interaction between characters or funny things so that the storytelling or amusement factors of the scenarios make up for my artistic shortcomings. (Like any artist, I'm constantly learning and am well aware that I always have a lot to work on.)

In the end though, only the people who leave the comments know why they did so, so perhaps I should be asking you instead! I am really grateful to everyone who's left me feedback over the years, and thank you very much for your kind comment as well; I'm happy you enjoyed looking through my gallery! =)

Hiii I noticed a thing ( made it up :> ) Buuut, in my second profile of awakening, I paired MyUnit, Silver, with Panne and had my beautiful children. Then I noticed, ( If you've seen Wolf Children, you''l know) How much like Ame and Yuki I want them to be. Yarne would continue to embrace his inner bunny rabbit, and Robin will choose to become a hooman Tactician, like daddy. Aahhh, ideas. It's beautiful, man
