Reading: Comments on DeviantArt
I feel like the "favorite" button has turned into the "like" button... Back in the day, I used to feel like I got more comments than favs. It has now reversed -- not that it's totally a bad thing, but as the artist I miss getting comments and feedback versus just favs.
When someone comments on my art it makes me think that "that someone stopped to look at the picture for more than just a moment... they actually sat and thought about what they liked (or didn't!) for a minute. They took the time to appreciate the piece and TELL the artist what they thought." It's a wonderful feeling.
I am starting a campaign -- Create More Comments!
If you like this idea, COMMENT, lol. And I'm not talking about on this journal... you can, but comment on people's art more!
Update: I have created a group... "Create-More-Comments" Join if you wish, or not. I haven't done much with it yet, plan to in the near future.
