Yeah... A few of the artists on DevArt seem to be really stuck-up. It's like, you watch them, and they don't take regard of that because they're all like, 'Yeah, I know my stuff is really great... that's why I get watched every 5 minutes'. I mean, would it kill them to leave a 'thanks for the watch' comment on their watcher's page? I'll stop there.
I highly admire them. They try hard and are what they are because of that. Sure, they don't reply to our comments, but look at all the comments they get! @_@
It's actually selfish wanting them to reply to every single comment.
Yup! That's cool. It's just that I'm the sort of guy that doesn't really like attention (I would hate being a celebrity XD). What I would do (if I would get 400 messages a day) is to leave DA and add my DA friends to my IM.
Cuz I can't live without 'em!
Sometimes I see popular artists and think that there are too many artists out there already and that everything I have done has been taken already....bleh. I still want to take a shot at writing graphic novels, though. But still, I wonder how they do so good...a lot of good artists that I know have awesome, caring parents and siblings who help them out and encourage them, but me....well, I really don;t have those. Family troubles I think what makes artists so popular are their connections to the outside world.....I don't think I'll make it.
I don't really care much about them. I mean sure, I might envy there skills or something liek that, but there's no way mehz would worship them. p (besides, seeing higher and better art motivates meh to do better. )
and to the popular artists that are snobbs, and ignorants, i just rather not even comment on there art. = ='' hehe, that's what mehz thinks. ^-^'''
i seem to normally get comments back, i don't hate them, i do think they have somewhat of a skewed view of the deviantart community because of their popularity. and it's obvious some of them have this weird elitist thing going on. most don't seem to be any different from others i've seen that aren't so popular.
Theres this artist Bleedman who I've messaged and he's messaged back to like two of my comments because I asked him a question in them.
If I were that good an artist I would try to listen to all of my fans...
It really depends on the person themselves, I mean some of them are really nice and try to comment whenever they can, and I really admire them, yet there are others who are absolute b****es about it and I hate them. So if you asked about a certain person, I'd be able to give you a more definite answer. I hope that makes sense!
Well, some stars in the sky have a brighter shine than others... but not all the shiny stars can get the others to shine... I think not even I understand myself... I totally admire the ones that are brighter, but I envy them and I'm angry with the fact that there are some artists way better than them and they get all the focus... blah!
as first, i wanna to be popular...but now, after reading some of the replies...i guess it not all that cracked up to be, i just wanna be known nice, friendly, silly. and...*points to sig* is what i want to be remembered.
If they have what it takes to get that popular, then
they're doing something right I suppose.
And if someones that popular, I suppose they would they would
get their mean image from getting so many messages and whatnot
and not being able to respond.
So in that regard, I don't really blame them.
I also noticed that a large portion of popular and notable artists
are female? Oh well. Thats cool anyway.
I'd have to say other. I do envy, admire, and am a little jealous of the attention they get, but most of them are REALLY overrated. They either draw fanart (which gives you LOTS of pageviews especially if you draw stuff like InuYasha and Final Fantasy), draw quick chibis that anyone could do, but since they're so popular, everyone sees their chibis and think "OMG! So cute! *watchfaveblah*". A lot of the great artists are overlooked and undiscovered, and cartoon-style is very, very popular here on dA, making it harder for realistic or photographers to get a handle in the popularity zone and art publicity area.
