In my DeviantART page, I've noticed that my parody works get viewed much more than my original work. One of my most popular comics has over 9000 views (Pardon the meme XD) whereas one of my original colourings only has 150 after three years.
So here's the billion dollar question: How do you get contacts and connections WITHOUT doing fanart and parodies?
Well I would understand that in YOUR case fanart will be viewed more, since those are probably tagged with words people look for. but if you draw good enough then those original pics will also be viewed a lot. No offense but your drawings are just not really good and so youre relying on TVshows to get views, but that wont help you getting a contract. I think that, if its a career you want, people are way more interested in original stuff then in fanart. "So you can draw something that already exists, no need for that."
