I was wondering about people's opinions on what I should do with my gallery, if I should focus on certain themes and subject matter, what they would like to see, etc.

I'm asking because I'd like to get a bit more traffic going, maybe get my work more exposed and generally become more active. I've been a bit disconnected from deviantart itself, but I'll look for any excuse to get me drawing more.

For instance, If I were to start a livestream, would anyone care to attend it? I'd probably host it sometime every week, preferably around the weekend, and draw for whatever amount of time. I'd do requests for people who wanted them, play music, talk, stuff like that. Maybe I'll even draw a few of my own characters. ponies would definitely be a reoccurring theme, I have no intention to stop drawing them, but they don't have to be the only thing I draw. I do not intend to ask for any sort of commission, it doesn't feel right, and I feel charging people for anything would only  increase my own anxiety.

Aside from that, what would people care to see more of? more fanart from various franchises? comics? perhaps more expansion on my own characters? are there any art-styles from previous works that I've done that I should return to?

If anyone cares to, I'd like to know your opinions.

Hey Derek! It's Elliott from Lonestar! How have you been man! I lost your number!

Ah man, it's really good to hear from you again.

Sorry that I didn't reply sooner, I've just been dealing with extremely limited internet ever since I moved to California, being that I live on a ranch now and internet out here is almost non existent.

Aside from that, however, I've been doing really good, been getting into the whole animal raising business with my aunt.

I'll send a note with my number on it, though I'll have to dig around for the phone itself, since I never use it. Its mailbox is completely full.

Well I am extremely saddened to read that you moved. I moved as well and closer to you. I really wanted to visit you again. Your family was so nice and welcoming, how are they by the way? Please send me a number man. Could we possibly play Live with your internet access?

Now that's made me very sad...I would have greatly enjoyed being able to visit you regularly.

My family's been alright, we're working on making our own business that has to do with raising and cooking chickens, among other things. I've personally gotten into raising rabbits, and it's been pretty nice taking care of animals.

And yeah, we can definitely play live. My internet IS pretty strong, the issue is that we have limited gigabyte usage, so I can't do very much outside of light browsing on the internet. Playing online with others uses little data, though. I wish skyrim was online, because that's what I've been obsessed with recently. Tell me some games you have in mind to play, and I'll see about playing them.

Still trying to find my phone by the way...don't know what I did with it, never really kept track of it since I never use it.
