I'm really bad at having my art out there... :blush: I know I'm not an amazing artist, but I like to think I'm pretty good... I also understand it takes time for people to notice your art... But when weeks, months go by and one of my best pictures has only 5 views, something must be wrong with me! :iconcriesplz:

No, this is not a desperate act of being an attention whore... :iconfacepalmplz:

I'm just looking for some kind tips from a generous deviant to help me get started (not new; deviant for almost 2 years) :iconbegplz:

Submitting your art and posting on the forums is a great way for somone to check out your work, offering art trades and commissions will do so too. But patience and practice is the key. Remember Rome wasn't built in a day. :)

Hi,
Being popular on deviant art gets you approximately nothing. Working to develop your skills can lead to a career in art and maybe that is a better goal.


However, identifying any goal (getting popular on DA) and achieving it, is a skill building exercise and that can be somewhat useful I think...

I feel the same way, brother. Try making friends. They are most likely willing to see and praise the drawings you post.
