    I think DA has its benefits and so does CA. I don't see any harm done in that and none is necessarily better than the other. Just different. Use the strong points. And in the rest of the time, be glad that your work gets to people with no training in art on the most basic level (that's not from my head, by the way, it was an advice that I learned in some older thread, but forgot who gave it )

    @jouzinka:Well like I said dude, I frankly don't know, sorry if it sounds stupid but I don't. But I'm asking questions here, not trying to look smart so it's ok if I let my blissfully unaware self slip here and there right? I should look into more artists but I just don't and I'm fine with looking to google images for inspiration and sites like this for insight. So maybe I've seen their work but I've never heard or seen anything about them specifically.

    I will proceed to put my foot back in my mouth now but I didn't mean to make a big stink of it.

    You think someone should keep their mouth shut because they are not intimately familiar with the chatroom handles of two random artists? So they are popular amongst you and your friends. There are millions of artists in the world.

    I think that perspective is pretty weird.

    Also all this stuff about how professional artists use DA. Come on, Randis and Adam Hughes? Of course they do. The DA demographic is their audience. they sell to a very specific segment of the population. That doesn't mean " There is a professional artist on there so it must be a good place to do promotions". It means those guys know they need to promote to that audience and DA is a good place for that.

    Just like Disney knows that McDonalds happy meals are a good place to promote films.

    This isn't about the knowledge about every other artist out there, this is about respect to people who build the community that I am at, asking those questions.

    The same way you don't come around and ask who's Jason Manley.

    I don't understand this attitude. What's wrong with people giving you compliments? You should be glad anyone wants to comment on your art at all. If you really want critique then there are plenty of people that will give it, but don't be a jerk about those who just want to send a few nice words your way.

    @jouzinka: Why would it be disrespectful for me to not know these people? And they have nothing to do with me recognizing or respecting Jason Manley. This conversation looks like it could start turning ugly though so please just try to keep level heads(myself included)

    @JJacks: if it is it's still sort of disrespecting the guy

    EDIT: hmmm... I should probably try to condense my comments better, sorry.

    In general, if you see a word, phrase, or name on a message board that you're not familiar with, it's much quicker and easier to google it than ask a question and wait for a response. After all, if you're posting, then you're already on the internet.

    Dunno how often you visit the forums but you'll find that such kinds of humor aren't exactly rare here, and most of the people (or those that aren't natural douches anyway) won't take any offense with it.

    I mean, the whole Nibru thing wouldn't have come up as spectacularly as it did if people here were devoid of humor and fun!

    Because you are on the board that they help build with their efforts and time?

    But that's probably just my personal code and I'm sorry for trying to impose it on you.

    Elwell has a great advice, though. If you see something you're not familiar with, run it through Google. It's quicker than asking questions and waiting for replies.

    i also know a lot of awesome artists that dont even have 5 watchers ,, thats why i hate DA cause everyone can join,, and its filled with tons of crap,
    You can't expect people to just stumble upon a dA page because it's good. The people with tons of page views do a lot of networking on the site.

    Im a member of deviantart and really i want to test a specific hypothesis.

    Im gona publish it as a paper on Enclyclopedia Dramatica, 4chan and to the scientific world as a whole.

    Title:The amount of pageviews in a DA submision in relation to Anime,Furry,Petting zoo people, Yaoi and Yuri.

    Precedure:The piece of artwork will be posted in 26 different acounts to achieve maximum efficency and too be able to measure the results.

    Each acount will house 4 submisions each containing different submisions with subject matters rangings from anime too yuri and Yaoi.The varibles chosen will be as follows:
    Anime
    Furry
    Petting Zoo People
    Yuri
    Yaoi


    One acount will house non of these and will contain 4 submisions ranginf from Free Scetching too Acrylic and Plastic Paintings.
    The rest 25 will contain a combination of the given Variables with the last 5 containing all possible combinations of them.

    The Expirement will take place in a period of a month,after which compilement of the results and final measures will be taken.

    Expected Date of Expirement:From April 1 too April 30 if i manage to finish the submisions on time.If i dont manage to meet the deadline i will move it too Ferbuary.
    __________________________________________________ ________________________

    Talking about the thread i have been a member of DA for almost 2 years.

    I have barely managed to hit 1000 acount views.I also mostly get my daily info of the worst of DA from EnclyDramatica so dont expect me to have an informed opinion.

    There are certainly a lot of great artists in DA but they are most often in the shadow of much less talented but popural artists.Snapesnogger comes to mind a popular but not that deserving artist.

    Too sum it up in this picture
    PS:Can someone please tell me how to put a NSFW tag?
    Also i hope i dont offend anyone or break any rules.

    Ok well I just want to point out that I had no interest in finding out who these people were and I wasn't waiting on a response nor was I expecting one. If I found it to be some huge deal I would have looked it up but it just seemed to me like they were some fairly popular artists known on the internet pretty well, and I was right so I had no need to know who they were, and I meant it as a rhetorical question even if it didn't come off that way.

    Secondly Jie Kageshinzo: Dude I meant no offense by what I said and I kinda knew it was a joke but I still think (and maybe you know the guy well enough to know were he stands on this, I have no clue) that we all owe him some kind of respect. But no I dont spend much time on the forums because I often don't have the answers people are looking for so I just stick to the SB section, and like I stated afterwards I was tired (and acting a bit defensively) But dude I wasn't trying to be an ass I just was hoping to make sure no one got offended.

    I think I had my question answered already anyway so I would like to thank everyone who decided to take their time to offer their assistance. So again, Thank you all very much, I greatly appreciate the help.

    hehe i am sorry that you are sorry xD ,, i have checked that thread when i 1st registered and it was 100% truthfull, anyway i am glad that people are commenting positivly on my stuff but 80% of my stuff is anime related stuff and there are so many people who worship those stuff, when i make something like a awesome portait of a celebrity noone coments.

    ,i dont mind so much hearing good comments, ( loved it in the beggining, i am still a bit happy when i see some messages arrived at my DA,

    well lets say it this way if a 100000 none,bad artists said my work is awesome and if 1 artist someone like you said its awesome i would be more happier to see your comment that those 100000 people.

    yes exactly, i have noticed some people who dont have a single file uploaded to their DA have more tha 10.000 PV,, while some people like Randis dont have even that much.

    If 80% of your stuff is anime, then you can hardly complain - you probably "treated" and "raised" your own audience - they are anime lovers and they expect that from you. Not to mention that anime is just the cult of this generation, IMHO.
