<EDIT>
Please do not comment without fully reading below.
TL;DR? Then please do NOT comment.
Sorry, I'm having some trouble with people not knowing how to read before they become angry... =_=;
</EDIT>


A lot of people on dA seem to want pageviews, favs, watchers, or whatever...it really all seems to do something with wanting to be "popular"

...I don't think people should be drawing just for popularity... yes, maybe if they make a living off making art and have an actual job with it and their actual life depended on it (like food, water, shelter)...but the plain fact is that on dA most people draw as a hobby. So shouldn't hobby drawing be for fun and not to get "adoring fans"?

I mean yeah, it's nice to know people like your art, and yes it does make you feel good...I'm no different...but some people actually seem to be driven to draw only for popularity, whether they are popular already or not...

Actually I've seen some artist (no names >:0 ) say they'll stop drawing cause they "don't have enough fans" ...so it kind of makes me wonder if they only create art to be loved/adored? 0~0; What happened to making art for things like enjoyment or stress relief? Isn't that how true art should be for? ;^;

I think a true artist looks past popularity and continues for enjoyment... I personally don't count those artists that only draw for popularity as actual artists, no matter how "good" their art is...



...but this is just my opinion though... You can disagree or agree, everyone has their own opinions~ so let's all respect everyone's opinions; me and you together~ ^u^
...no fighting/flamming >:0 ...but friendly debate = yay




----------------

anyone can use this stamp~ no need to fav or whatever, it's free for use~ <3

true but without someone telling me their opinion i get uninspired, i run off comments that prove people are not just clicking fav because they don't care to say a few words as to why they faved it.

this reminds me of a quote, i dont know where from or how it goes, but it went something like " Artists dont do what they do for fame or fortune, they do what they do because they love to do it" ... I cant remember, but its true!

I don't consider myself an artist. I just draw when I feel like it. OI never draw for 'fans' firstly, because there is no point, secondly, because even if i atned i can only do bad pencil doodles :) I undertand your message

I used to get mad and a bit power hungry, but that doesn't mean I don't stop for a damn thing. I keep drawing all the way, hell till my hands fall off if they have to. I made a journal here as well talking about being so power hungry over something little when really I shouldn't have to.

I can get kind of discouraged when I see that my most favorited submission has only 8 favorites, but I will never stop drawing because of that! bunneh icon14

The point of being a successful artist is for the support and popularity amongst the public. This is how people make a living, and become recognised.

Artists thrive on popularity to make a living, fuck this stamp and everything it stands for. Yes, art can be a hobby as well but there are no true or fake artists (: sorry to all the special snowflakes that think otherwise!

??? selling out? HONEY, You do what you need to for money. No one should be shaming anyone trying to make a living off of art

EVEN if that includes wanting to get popular/noticed.

stfu you pretentious shits theirs no such thing as a"Real artist' or "Fake artist" if you like doing art congrats ur an artist
if u like doing art and wanna be famous for it, youre still an artist 
im so pissed by the amount of ppl who think theyre better and ''real artists'' just because they dont wanna be famous 
doing art for fame or what ever still qualifies you as an artist 
like dont let not being famous stop you from arting but if you wanna draw because you want your 5 minutes of fame w/e fucking do it if you have fun drawing youre still an artist

True. I mean it's one thing to depend on art for a means of living, of course you gotta expand and market your art. But just for the sake of popularity? Nope. What a sad existence you have, if that's the case.

More often times than not, those people who draw for popularity become so lost in the fame that they're no longer who they used to be. They don't care about anything else as long as they get more and more fans. Some even push their own friends away just for that which is just sad, but hey, c'est la vie. Some people are bound to collapse under the weight of popularity.

Just remember that popularity always comes with a price. It's up to you what you're giving up. It could be time, your old life... even friends, it all depends.

TL;DR I don't really care if you get popular for your art or not, as long as you don't become a total self-absorbed she-dog after getting "popular". Because I don't really care how "popular" you think you are, as long as you know how to respect people.
