For most people it's usually meaningful comments, but as for new users, I think attention through watch & favs & comments in general are better. It lets the person know that he's doing a good work and should continue to draw and post.

i say meaningful comment,usually all i see are faves XD,but when someone leave a comment on one of my drawings it makes me happy to know that there are people who like my art and want to see more of it :)

More watchers is nice, but most of them aren't that active and it's hard to keep up with everyone so...I gotta go with meaninful comments. It makes me happy when someone comes on my front page and starts up a discussion about something they noticed about me, common interests, or whatever. There's more to it than just fave thank yous. I like quality feedback on my best deviations too, especially when I put alot into them. Whether it's an actual critique or a conversation on the subject matter.

I think all of us are really just waiting for feedback, any shape or form, but meaningful comments are probably the most....meaningful for new deviants, i would know, i was one up until like 2 months ago, when i was no longer classified as one.

well this is stupid, people who said being shown relevant artworks really must think it thru like seriously??

I'd say meaningful comments.

I would say all of the above. Each bit of feedback, in whatever way the deviant chooses to show it - is both valid, useful and much appreciated.
