Artistic Value = Watches? No at all!

illastrat Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
people can be very stupid. Some actually think that watches reflect skill. This is dumb. Like with me I don't have that many watches. But thats because I haven't been an active member of DA. In addition, there are people with hundreds of watches and they are utter shit (anime artists etc). A lot of people on DA have been on consistently for 8-10 years never resting from this site. When I say 8-10 I mean everyday they are on this site. I wasn't a frequent member before 6 months ago. Before, I used this site as a way to store my work. People are IG.NO.RANT!

Just because you have watches doesn't make you GOOD.

i agree with you ive seen amazing artist on deviantart who deserve more watchers but i dont believe that every single anime artist is shit i find that quite ignorant to think that way

i think the big issue is interests. a lot of fanart and anime works alike get way more attention than original, good works simply because the viewer wasn't interested. The popular artists are the most generic and relatable ones, and its not often a really 'out there' person is well liked, simply because less people understand them.
generic artists and unusual artists can all have the same skill, but the generic artist will have more viewers simply because more people relate to their works.

it makes it very hard for both groups, because generic artists aren't 'original' enough but are still popular, while unusual artists are novel and sometimes pleasing, but rather unpopular.

if you break the rules, are unusual and popular, you become relatable. therefore youre now a generic artist. or, if your popular and original, people may start getting bored and stop paying attention, therefore you're now an unusual artist.

you're always one or the other, or slowly switching between the two. i dont want to say it's impossible to be both, but it basically is. so you have to try to be content with whatever you did get.

HEY! I draw anime and I barely get any COMMENTS let alone watchers, just favorites! Is it too much to ask for comments as to WHY you faved, not just a "hui bye faving kthnx"?

But yea, you got a point there.

GreenEyedYoshika has been here for 5 years, has 43,500 pageviews and 174 watchers. I must be doing something wrong. Oh. I draw anime/manga. Duh!
