Sonic-Themed Commissions Closed Permanently

After much consideration, I've decided that the closing of Sonic-themed commissions will be permanent. I will no longer be accepting Sonic characters for commissions. It doesn't stop me from drawing them for my own entertainment, however. But I don't want to take anymore of these types of commissions anymore.

I'm not really liking how the fandom treats one another on twitter and other social media websites, so I found it best to distance myself from the fandom until things cooled off. I and other artists I've known have been harassed about drawing adult art of Sonic characters.

While yes, the majority of them are teenagers, I've always made it a point to draw them as adults when I do adult art of them. Doesn't stop people that think have the high ground to try and "cancel" content creators that are just minding their own business.

So at this point, I think it's best to just leave the Sonic stuff to the younger crowd. I think I'm fizzled out. Which sucks but what can you do. Right? There's a few other reasons as to why I came to this decision but I'd rather not say out loud.

Sonic-fandom tends to be very toxic as Steve Universe and Nu-She-Ra fandom.

Fair enough. Sometimes you need to distance yourself from a group to let it work its issues out. It's why i never engaged the Steven Universe fandom...it went toxic pretty quickly.

i mean im a Sonic fan but i dont consider myself being inside the fandom. Its hard to have a good time there. My advice, dont stop. Even if they gonna critic your stuff or something like that, just ignore them. But if is for something else, its fine, its your decision obviusly.

Thanks for the advice but I've already made my decision. If I do sonic art it's just going to be for myself. I'm not taking anymore Sonic-themed commissions.

Thing is, it goes beyond just "critique", we're talking straight up harassment and sometimes even mass reportings on Twitter to try and get the accounts taken down.

What is going on in the fandom? Has all the SJW non inclusiveness in the name of being more inclusive gotten even more out of hand? Once i saw the early signs of that pattern starting to take over, I just up and left myself. : /

I know, right? Even I want to pop a bunch of people in the teeth because of all the negativity the Sonic fanbase gets.

I'm a laid-back but die-hard fan of the whole franchise.

My take would be: Do whatever makes you happy, but don't take such decisions based on what other people complain about. Of course I'm speaking for myself, but if it were me I'd do something like gradually drawing them younger the harder they complain just to troll those moralists. Sorry, these fanatics and their art police are part of why this fandom has been destroyed and my feelings toward them are very harsh generally... otherwise good luck whatever you feel is right to do!

It's based on what I'VE personally dealt with, not just with what I've been witnessing. Intentionally drawing them younger in sexual situations is not going to help me or anyone in the long run. I am doing this for my own mental well-being.

No matter how you're age-up or not to sexualize those characters, doesn't mean you're immune to criticism

Don't please with those antis, you're not making money from them, just draw whatever you love
