February Fever

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 1, 2016, 1:34 PM
February by elee0228
It's February already? Must be time for February Fever again. Like last year, I'll be posting a new commissioned work every other day for a total of 14 for the month. February also means that my birthday will be here at the end of the month. Actually, it'll be the second-to-last day of the month since it's a leap year. In case you didn't know, the numbers in elee0228 refer to my birthday, February 28. I don't have anything special planned for this year, though I guess you could say that February Fever is my gift to the community. Hope you enjoy February as much as I am planning to.

So far in 2016, I've already commissioned a few new artists and gotten some terrific artwork. I think the January works I've posted so far have been awesome. The best is yet to come, as they say. Up above are 6 commissions work-in-progress pics from the talented Speeh which I'll be posting soon.  Here's a few more sneak peaks from other artists:

Top 10 Deviations of 2015

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 5, 2016, 8:23 AM
We've reached the end of 2015, so it's time again to recap the most popular deviations from the past year in my gallery as determined by DeviantArt community through the most faves.

Top 10 of 2015
01) 842 faves 02/03/2015 She Hulk by bigmac996
02) 599 faves 03/03/2015 Power Girl by ichan-desu
03) 595 faves 05/01/2015 Supergirl by ichan-desu
04) 595 faves 03/20/2015 Officer Jenny by ichan-desu
05) 570 faves 01/16/2015 Amazon by ichan-desu
06) 567 faves 02/01/2015 Tifa by Speeh
07) 560 faves 01/01/2015 Amazon by Speeh
08) 558 faves 10/09/2015 Samus by DJOK3
09) 557 faves 03/05/2015 Tifa by DJOK3
10) 551 faves 05/24/2015 Wonder Woman by bigmac996

She Hulk by elee0228Power Girl by elee0228Supergirl by elee0228Officer Jenny by elee0228Amazon by elee0228Tifa by elee0228Amazon by elee0228Samus by elee0228Tifa by elee0228Wonder Woman by elee0228

There's some interesting stuff going on here, with just 4 artists claiming all 10 spots. bigmac996 bookends the Top 10 with #1 and #10. ichan-desu wins the prize for most appearances in the list with 4 consecutive contributions from in the #2-#5 spots. Speeh and DJOK3 round out the list with two spots each. Tifa and Amazon both claimed 2 spots this year, seems these characters are liked by a lot of you.  As usual, the DeviantArt community has great taste in artists and is amazingly consistent in its faving.

bigmac996 is an awesome artist, and I definitely would like to commission him more.  Both commissions from Speeh in this list were actually commissioned back in 2014 and posted in 2015.  I managed to snag a new commission slot, though we haven't started yet.  I still have a batch of six commissions I'm waiting on from ichan-desu.  I'm sad that he said he won't be taking on any new commission work, his work is awesome and judging by this Top 10 list, the community likes his stuff too.

I only got a 81% approval rating in my 2015 poll, down from 88% back in 2014, though that might be due to the way the poll was set up with stars instead of good/meh/bad options.  The voting results are almost exactly the same as the 2013 results.  Or it could be that people didn't like the art this year as much as 2014, I'm not sure.  Either way, I'll work hard to bring more muscle girl art to the community.  

In 2015, I posted 168 commissions from 68 different artists featuring 46 different characters.  The most frequently commissioned artist in 2015 was ichan-desu with 23 deviations, followed by zetarok with 12 deviations and Solfei with 11 deviations.  51 deviations were nude versions.  The most frequently commissioned character was She-Hulk (21 times), followed by Samus (15 times) and Korra (13 times).  The average number of faves on each deviation was 243 faves.  The total number of faves on all deviations in 2015 was 41706.  

What were your favorite pics from my gallery and from other's galleries?

That's 2015 in a nutshell.  It felt like a good year to me.  Thanks for all the comments and faves.  I can't reply to them all, though I do read everything.  Keep them coming, it keeps me motivated in the sharing of my muscle girl commissions and findings.  On to 2016!

Commission Previews

Nude November is in full swing. I should have a new pic to post every other day or so. That means new non-nude stuff won't start getting posted until next month. I've had a bunch of commissions that I have been itching to share. So it's time for some sneak peaks! Up above, you'll find some awesome pictures that I will be sharing with the good boys and girls of the community in the not too distant future.

The first 2 commissions of R.Mika and Chun-Li are done by the inimitable zetarok, with colors and backgrounds courtesy of me. They really came out great. You'll have to settle for some low-res versions for now. There's also some pics of Poison and Cammy that he completed which I'll post at some point. He created a folder for my commissions and has a version of the Cammy pic in there:

Cammy White by zetarok

The third pic is by a new artist I started working with this month by the name of gao-lukchup. His work is fantastic and I highly recommend him if you are looking for an artist to commission. I'm already working on more stuff with him. I really dig his art. Here are some samples from his gallery:

vb thai no.19 by gao-lukchup kanomtal my original character no.3 by gao-lukchup 

The pic of Juri from Street Fighter is by the talented Ero-Chong. Like me, he is a huge fan of Jun Tsukasa. I commissioned him for a set of 3 SF gals (Juri, Chun-Li, and Poison). He has one version of all 3 gals posted in his gallery if you want to take a peek at it.

The fifth pic of Tifa and Aeris from Final Fantasy is by AlterTwentyTwo. I really liked the Nami and Nico Robin commissions he did for me and decided to commission him again. I still want to add a background and make some tweaks before posting those. He's a great artist and really cool to work with. I'll be posting the nude versions of both of the One Piece girls as part of Nude November.

Nami by elee0228 Nico Robin by elee0228 

The last pic of Akiko Daimon is by Solfei who finished a set of commissions for me recently. I love how this one turned out and was really happy with it. I have a bunch of stuff from him that I'll be posting, though you can check out some of it in his gallery, he's posted a few of them up there:

Edit1: 3m pageview reminder, should be sometime today.
Edit2: We did it! Thanks to GepFu for the 3M screenshot! And cactusjoe999 for the 3M+1 screenshot.

Elee0228-3m0 by elee0228 

After 10 years of the same thing, I changed my icon today. I should have changed it when I started commissioning characters other than Akiko Daimon, though I never did for some reason. The new icon is from The Power, an older commission. I'm also creating some new accounts to better organize the stuff in my gallery. There are accounts for the 5 characters I commission most. Please add these to your watch list if you are a fan of them:

:iconmuscle-akiko: :iconmuscle-korra: :iconmuscle-shehulk: :iconmuscle-chunli: :iconmuscle-tifa:

I like the way these icons look together. I was just checking out my statistics today:

6500 Watchers by elee0228

I noticed that I had over 900 deviations in my gallery. That's way too much! I don't think people would have the patience to scroll through all that art. It's hard to handle that much raw muscle. To make things easier to find based on character, I thought I'd give this a try. I started copying some older stuff over to those accounts. I updated a few of the older pieces, too. I think I'll still leave the original versions in this main gallery for now, though that might change. Just trying to shake things up a bit.

I also hit 6500 watchers today, still makes me shake my head in amazement that so many people like the stuff in my gallery. I appreciate each and every one of you. Even though I can't respond to every comment, I still read every one. Thank you for your support.

Also approaching the 3 million pageview milestone. I haven't planned for anything to celebrate the occasion. If you happen to catch it, I'd appreciate it if you could send me a screenshot.

Nude November is making a comeback, too. Stay tuned!

DeviantArt Thoughts

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 4, 2015, 12:58 PM
I've got a few random thoughts about DeviantArt that I wanted to share.

I discovered you can use the left and right arrow keys to go between deviations in a gallery or search. I now use this all the time. Am I the last person to know about this? And speaking of galleries, I've noticed that portrait and landscape deviations do not align vertically in thumbnail grid mode. They are slightly offset by a few pixels. That bugs me.

I was a little mad that they got rid of the Premium Core Membership discounts. I totally would have renewed for multiple years before the price increase if I knew that was going to happen. I do like the orange core membership symbol better than the star that they used before. It just looks slicker to me.

Looks like DeviantArt tweaked it's search algorithm again. I'm seeing different deviations at the top for searches that I do regularly. It's a little wonky though, and the stuff at the top sometimes has way less faves than things below it. Last time they changed the algorithm, they made a post about Fair Exposure. Not sure if they will make an announcement this time, they were quiet about the whole Core Membership thing.

I'm not a fan of the watch view browse mode. It's nice that you can customize it, though I don't enjoy scrolling down to view stuff.  Maybe if they had a Pinterest-like grid view, I'd like it more. It just takes too long to go through the feed that way. I do like the undiscovered browse mode, and find good stuff in there. I am really curious how they figure out what should go in there though.

I used to respond to every comment I got. It's getting to be too much for me, I don't have enough time in the day to do that. Please don't feel bad if you don't get a response from me. I'm starting to get more picky about what I respond to so that I have more time to bring everyone more muscle art commissions. After all, that's why you are here, right?

I've been really happy with the commissions I have been getting from zetarok recently. I decided to create a separate Zetarok folder in my gallery to keep it all sorted. When I commission him, I usually get a nude character. Then I will add a background and clothes to it. I think the combination comes out great, and that we make a good team. Here is a preview of some pieces that I'll be posting soon. Enjoy!:

Top 100 Deviants

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 9:41 AM

In this post celebrating DeviantArt's 15th birthday, Heidi includes a section for the Top Deviants by Watchers which listed the top 10 deviants. I had been tracking the Top 50 in Watchers Toplist for awhile now. I updated it today because it was little out of date, and expanded it to the Top 100. This list follows below, though I have some more details and analysis at the original post. Hope it's useful to all you out there. Happy birthday, DeviantArt!

Kengan Ashura
Manga Muscle Girls「漫画の筋肉娘」

 photo v1-cover.png

Kengan Ashura (ケンガンアシュラ) is a fighting manga written by SANDROVICH Yabako (サンドロビッチヤバ子) and drawn by Daromeon (だろめおん). Here's the description from Mangahelpers:

Since the Edo periods of Japan, gladiator arenas exist in certain areas. In these arenas, wealthy business owners and merchants hire gladiators to fight in unarmed combat where winner takes all. Toki Taouma, nicknamed "Ashura", joins these arenas and devastates his opponents. His spectacular ability to crush his enemies catches the attention of the big business owners, including the Nogi Group chairman, Nogi Hideki.

Volume 2 of the series features some female fighters, one of them very muscular:

In Volume 5, a new regular character named Karura (カルラ) is introduced, sporting some very well defined abs:

In Volume 9 and 10, there are 2 special bonus chapters of a Kengan Ashura vs Street Fighter mini-series. Poison looks pretty good in a few of the panels:

Edit: Tanya has a new instagram account

I have a new Internet crush, and her name is Tanya Voshell. She recently placed fourth in Class C of the Bikini Division at this past weekend's NPC Atlantic States Championships. I first saw her on Instagram and the website Kill The Underground, the source of the pic at the top. Tanya is also on Instagram as fit_pandaaaa and has a ton of nice progress pics there. There's more contest pictures at,  click on the pics below to go there and check them out.

Just sharing a 5 things I've come across recently. The first is a 2 chapter manga called Bodybuild Girl (ボディビルガール) features Yu Saito (斎藤優), daughter of bodybuilding parents who urge her to live up to her genetic potential:

6000 watchers! It is awesome that so many of you out there like the commissions I post enough to add me to your watchlist. It is truly an honor. I really appreciate every watcher, fave, and comment that I get. The internet is a big place, so it's cool that you choose to spend a bit of that time here. Keep those comments coming, it keeps me motivated in sharing my stuff. I will try to keep the muscle art flowing around here.

I've got a backlog of nudes that I want to post. It's getting pretty big though, and it's at over 50 pictures now. Sometimes, I'll just post nudes for an entire month. I try to avoid spamming and post only every 2 days or so. At that rate, it would take me 3 months to post everything. Too much? Or do folks prefer just sprinkling in the nudes occasionally like I've been doing? I want to know your thoughts.

Also wanted to let everyone know I'm on Facebook and Twitter and I have DevArt auto-update those feeds.
