I actually usually find artists I like through comments sections like these. I see a cool avatar and I automatically click to have a look. But I also find a lot of people through the job offers form simply coz they'll say "Hi I’m interested please visit me at [link] thank you" and I can’t help but go have a nose about.

Front page set to newest, favorites of other people I happen across, Google an artists name I heard and see if they have a DA. I don't know, hell I can't remember where the majority of the people I watch were found.

You forget one option.. through 'favorite artist's' favorites. ;)

I always find new artist to love through artist's favorite because I love certain kinds of art genre. So when I check my favorite's artists' favorite... I get the the overall idea what kind the artist's love which is maybe I may liked too. hahaha

It's a little sad this Poll is like this. Based on these Comments, the number one way people find new artists is by looking at people's Favorites Lists, and that's not on here. That's what I would have said, but it's not on here. And this Poll is a lot like a previous one, except less good. :thumbsdown: to this one. Sorry.

I find artists to love when, they draw/write a fan art/fiction of a favorite of mine then I browse their gallery. If I liked his/her style, then, poof! One of my faves!
