So I've been thinking really hard about how I can get more watchers and show off more of my work. At first I figured if I made more work I'd get more watchers and with practice I would get a bigger audience naturally. I guess that has worked to some extent, but I think I'd like to do more than that. So I've decided to start a campaign where I look for artists who I like and add as many as I can to my watch. I feel that by supporting other artists and commenting on their work it not only helps myself, but also other artists in the deviantart community. So I guess you could say I'm issuing a challenge to everyone who reads this to do the same and share the love with as many artists as possible. Being an artist is a lot of hard work and takes a lot of time and dedication. We deserve more credit for that. Let's help each other out and see what we can do to better our beloved community.
I also don't expect to get something for nothing. I'd like to in the near future host a contest with some neat prizes. I'll have more details about that after I return from a much needed spring break, but I thought I'd just give everyone a heads up to tell their friends that a contest is in the making. Some of the prizes will include a free commission from me, a one month premium membership to deviantart, one free print from my shop, and a custom button badge. I'm really excited about this and I hope you guys are too! See you next week!
