Get your Art some Attention

Five basic tips to get your Art some Attention, Appreciation & Audience

Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not. First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. ;P This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.:nod: Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far. So here we go! :iconeagerpee: Submit art regularly. Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of deviations a week, but only if you have something to upload that you like and find wort

A Few Helpful Tips on Getting ExposureEdit: Updated 9-18-2012 with newer information Published August 27, 2009
Please note that this is not about pageviews! Pageviews count only a little toward the amount of attention your art receives. I would not recommend trying to obsessively increase your pageview number; doing so would just turn some people away from your art.

Only add what you truly enjoy. :) If the image really touches you, leave a heartfelt comment. If th
A Guide for New Deviants
So you've become a new deviant. You may be a little confused at first as to some features of the site, or what deviantART may be for. I hope this guide helps answer some of your questions. What exactly is deviantART, and what is it for? deviantART is a massive community of artists who come together to share their work.

You can add work to your favorites and go back to view them at any time, leave comments, etc. There are many different categories of art, enough to suit everyone's tastes. Feel free to browse the front page for what you like. You can toggle through "Newest" and "Popular" (whether it's the most popular from 8 or 24 hours ago, or from "all time"). Uploading Art Some new members may have trouble when it comes to uploading their first deviat
