How To Be Popular On DevArt by shinga How To Be Popular On DevArt by shinga
I'm going to die for this, I just know it.



And I left out the most surefire way to get popularz! FANART! A WHOLE LOT OF IT!



IN FACT, TURN FANART INTO ANGSTY ANTHRO. OR INFLATE YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER LOLZ. OR MAKE THEM BISHIE KAWAII.



Oh yeah. My ass is FLAMED for this.

EDIT: The naga bit is referring to one particular artist here on DA who is talented, but has a rather... uh, interesting style. And she's obsessed to the point of Uber!Creepy about her crazy pretty boything naga people. I won't mention any names, because I don't mean to offend her or her fans, it's just... well, with the 3+million pageviews, obviously pretty snake-type things make you popular. ;) Hope that clears that up.

I might have already commented on this.... and yeah fanart was what got me noticed here. But now that I do my OWN art, I get almost no pageviews these days. Tis sad. And I'm happy to say I've never drawn anything on this list. Except maybe for naga-thing, but mu naga peeps aren't naga, they're non-humanoid aliens.

If that is what it takes, then I think I'd prefer to remain unpopular and obscure.

Well from what I know this:www.deviantart.com/art/hades-a… is the most popular deviation of all time and it doesn't really fit in to any of these categories.

If steps 1-6 fail you, just fill your gallery with nothing but recolors, sparkledogs, and screenshots. Repeat until world-famous. :trollface:

:iconclapplz: you forgot slashing and shipping you NEED to turn characters who are usually strong and independent into horny creeps driven by nothing but how much they love that person who they would never get along with.

1) You win yourself a :iconfreeinternetplz:
2) I never understood why people are so obsessed with drawing women with unreasonably large breasts...hell that's one thing I fear the most when I end up drawing a female...it creeps me the f*** out...*shudders*
I think you've been put in the DA "hall of fame" for this instead of dieing...I know ED does. :lmao:

In very-much-joking-and-sarcastic retaliation to this, I think I'll stick true to my values of BASIC SURVIVAL RATING and take my chances by creating things of merit, rather than risk people murdering me over something plastic, underage, and lacking in quality of character.

Oh, and you forgot robots. Robots get LOTS of views.

seems the best way to get popular on deviantart is to make a cartoon explaining how to get popular on devianart... well played.

7. Draw a pony. Or ponify something that has nothing to do with MLP. Or reverse that. Make a pony human. The bigger the breasts the better.

8. Draw a youtube famous let's player. It doesn't matter if it looks like them. Just draw a blonde anime guy and say it's Pewdiepie. Or if you can't draw, just upload a screencap of him.

But seriously, I love everything in this. And it is drawn well. *high fives*

You should have wrote "go to beginner clubs and watch/favorite 300 people there (while not actually clicking the deviations option for what shows up in your inbox). Most of them are pretty desperate for watchers and will watch you back ASAP.
