I would have enjoyed these 2 years on deviantart so much more if i actually had gained watchers

Now whenever I see relatively new users with no watchers and potential i try to follow them

sadly some deviants favorite things just becuz they want you to be their watcher. It annoys me when people just shove my art into a folder that doesn't mean anything, and that gets added to every 5 seconds

I feel as though watchers are the most helpful.  This site is not as newbie friendly as it was years ago, sadly, and a lot of wonderful and talented artists aren't showcased the way they should be.

I'm new to the site and unsure of my art. I don't get many comments and it makes me think I have bad art and that no one likes what I do.

Hmm how about adding your art to groups it will get more people to see your art that way! Here is one: exclusively-all-art.deviantart…

As much as I enjoy getting a favourite on one of my photographs, it's the comments that help the most. Ironically, I would also love to have some actual critisizing feedback, or I won't actually know what I'm doing wrong, and improve on myself.

I think all of it is important. At least, when you join to get some attention for your work.
