I have submitted this artwork to the thumbshare forum as one of my favourite underappreciated artworks [link]. I hope this is okay and also hope that your artwork gets the attention it deserves. Although this forum can only be viewed by subscribed deviantART members, it is an opportunity to be featured in the News Journal 'Digital Friday Favorites' [link] (the most recent version). The next Journal to be published will be the 24th edition and can also be accessed from :iconjunkbyjen: [link]. Good luck! :)
