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.
Although my work seems to be gaining popularity I wouldn't mind having a few more viewers. I've been on here for about 2 months, submitted 43 drawings, and have earned myself 17 followers. True, I'm happy to know all of these people really enjoy my work, but I've seen people on here with far more followers than that, and they've submitted far fewer deviations. I do try hard to make my work look the best it can (depending on the materials used), but it's a tiny bit frustrating
