Also, to people who are concerned with 'ego-stroking', insecure much? It happens everywhere, not just here. Deal with it.
Grow a pair of balls, you don't need mummy to hold your hand and tell you that you're her special angel who never sucks. Art is about creating something beautiful and self expression, not about how many comments you get in a forum/website. If you like it and you've drawn it, be proud.
Some art styles are more popular than others, it happens. Critique is not the be all and end all of art. Do more studies, enroll in a class, read books. But i'm crazy for even insinuating that you have to work to get praise, right?!
