Newest Deviations

Random Favourites

Update I investigated dAhub yesterday and got 60 watchers and about 40 comments and 60 favourites in exchange for 100 deviant art points. Hmm. You can “earn” points too, by leaving comments of faves. So there’s a trade in points for popularity. I had no idea. On the whole 'd rather get favourites because I touch someone's heart than to get points, so I think no more of that one for me, it's a dangerously attractive game but not why I'm here.

I've been experimenting with GetWatchers.com, a Web site that shows you random deviant art pages so you can commnt of :fav: them; if you do, GetWatchers adds some of your own deviations to the list that are shown to other people, so you get more views.

If you're using it, please comment and tell me what you think of it.

I fear it leads to superficial comments, and that the art people choose to show (you can choose 10 of your deviations) tends not to be hard-hitting enough, but how to make the comments better?

I spent some time on photosig.net, and GetWatchers is slightly better in that it favours long comments, so "nice capture" or "pretty flower" comments are less likely - but then, on photosig you also get comments like, "did you consider using the 800mm f/2.8 lens to accentuate the bokeh while preserving the flatness of the subject and still adhering to the rule of thirds" which isn't much better.

Tell me instead, This picture made me rise up and soar over the cubicles of drudgery like a canary in a clockwork shoe factory singing Ave Maria to the nuns in the rafters; tell me, The balance is off here because the rock and the snake distract the viewer's eye away from the dog's severed penis - suggest a tighter crop, preferably one that entirely eliminates the vomiting giraffe, and possibly lightening the shadows a little to get detail back into the wall of the pit.
