TL;DR? Then please do NOT comment.
Sorry, I'm having some trouble with people not knowing how to read before they become angry... =_=;

A lot of people on dA seem to want pageviews, favs, watchers, or 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" 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^ fighting/flamming >:0 ...but friendly debate = yay


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

I thought uploading art on this site means that you want to be famous.
If you draw for fun, don't submit here anything. You don't need fame, right?

I 100000000% agree! I'm sick of seeing artists cry over how unpopular they are. They make journals saying, "Oh, no one likes me, so I'm not going to draw anymore. Leaving deviantART, bye." That's horrible! You shouldn't be drawing for others! 

Which also applies to famous people, who only draw for others. If I said "Viria," how many Harry Potter/Percy Jackson fans would immediately recognize the name? Now, I'm not denying that Viria is a talented girl, but sometimes, I feel as though she only draws/posts for fame. I don't know this for a fact, so don't snap at me. And I'm only using Viria as an example. But you get the idea. The people who post only what they know will please a huge audience. People whose galleries are 100% fan art.

Yes it's nice to know people like your art, but you should only draw if you enjoy it ^-^

I've seen things like "I'm gonna stop drawing but heres just one more thing before I stop" and im just like "are you kidding me?" it pissed me off.

Good stamp ^^ and I agree with you completely.

You shouldn't draw for fame, but you can still dream of becoming famous. ;)
What's the point of drawing if you're not gonna go anywhere with it? :hmm:
But yeah, I agree with this stamp. :)

(I'm not sure if what I just said made sense or not.)

Apologies if I've already commented here before, but I agree. So many people seem to only want to get the populars' attention on here...There's more to this site than fame, and there's way more to art than fame too.
