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.

I feel like I should fave this journal just for the irony of it :D

I agree with you, though. :)

I've always felt that way about comments versus faves. It actually [i]bothers[/i] me when people just fave a piece rather than comment on it, because I feel like they didn't think it was worth taking the time to type up a response. That's why if I fave something, I generally take the time to comment on it as well, and I'm more likely to comment on pieces than I am to fave them.

...I don't know how much help it will be, but I've decided to redo my sig and link your journal entry in it.

Cool, cool! I may update my link now that you've made a group. I think you should re-post this entry on the group page, or something similar (a "mission statement", if you will).

I'll probably try and work on some promotional art-type things for it, when I get the chance.

I've noticed the same thing. When browsing the daily favorites, there's a lot of stuff on there I wouldn't consider art. A lot of it is stuff you'd see on icanhascheezeburger.com or something. Lot of pictures with Arial text and rehashes of memes. Its not art. Its stuff people like and then fav. There's very few actual art images that are worthy of the number of favs to get them to front page favorites.
