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? :XD: I'll stop there.

i think they are overrated.. there are super artists which draw and comment.. and one which i met.. which had amazing talent.. but thought everyone was beneath her.. everyone is different i guess.

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.

Yep, I don't mind much the fact that they don't reply to all the comments (I'm quite popular and receive like 400 daily messages....I can't imagine how many receive the super popular deviants X_O )

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! :XD:

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 :no: I think what makes artists so popular are their connections to the outside world.....I don't think I'll make it.

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.

I can't understand how some of them are so popular, but I figure if they have all those hits, then they must have earned them. So they should just rock on.

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!

I don't really care either way, lots of people who are really in vogue, I'm sure they're great people, but I don't know them, and most of the popular work doesn't appeal to me, so, I don't know.

With some people, I wonder if being popular makes them rude and vain, or if they're that way to begin with. I've never been popular, in any arena, so I really don't know.

I actually don't mind the popular artists.

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.
