I do wish I was a bit more poplar, but that doesn't matter! I draw for fun! I like my art and THAT is all that matters! People, don't wast your time on trying to get popular by making a ton of crap that isn't you! Make what YOU wanna make, not what other people WANT you to make! Be true to you and just MAYBE you might get a few faves... BUT WHO CARES! You don't need watches, faves, comments, llamas ANY of that! You are a GREAT artist ONLY when you are TRUE to YOU! But I guess if you get a request and you WANNA make it, that's fine! But if you don't want to and someone says, "oh, maks mez a <Something> nowz and ill fave and add you as a watch!" DON'T DO IT!
Why do people care about popularity? I mean, i bet almost 50% of deviantART care about getting more messages, watchers, llamas and favs! They should gtfo, and stfu about "I want to be popular", because they probably NEVER will.
