Social Experiment findings on Point GiveawaysHi Guys,More Like This
First of all, I apologize for such a delayed reply on my updates. I was tied up completely on something that I was working on lately. (Updates on that will be posted in my next journal)
If you guys remember, I did a small social experiment to analyze the effect of point giveaways in deviantART.
What is a giveaway?
Giveaway are things that is given free, often for promotional purposes. -Google definition
In deviantART, giveaways are generally conducted using points ( DA ), or premium subscriptions, physical gifts such as bags or prints etc. They are often intended to promote a group page, events or an individual profile. Giveaways are generally organized by the means of raffle or lucky draws. Almost every giveaways has certain steps to be followed to enter into the raffle followed by a deadline.

Get your Art some Attention on deviantARTFive basic tips to get your Art some Attention, Appreciation & Audience on deviantARTMore Like This
Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:
Submit art regularly.
Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of dev

Idea from ~seapuppy
Self promotion? Some of you may be thinking I'm crazy, that that's just being shallow...but the truth is, if you go about it the right way, self promotion can boost the amount of notice you receive without harming any one.
For example, someone gives you a favourite; go and thank them! You don't have to go all out, with a page long comment; a short and sweet comment on their profile page (perhaps add
Getting Noticed aka becoming *Popular*How do you get ahead on deviantART?More Like This
I am actually asked this question a lot. And in reality, many artists with lots of watchers are asked this question fairly frequently by both old and new deviantART members. There are actually several different ways to get attention on deviantART, but not all those ways are good and most work best when combined together. Let's look at them all individually and then discuss "best practices."
But what is "popular?"
Is being popular just a status symbol for you to make you happy? Is it an arbitrary number assigned to an inanimate object like a pageview? It is a silly symbol by your username that means virtually NOTHING to the majority of the deviantART community (and is meaningless to the rest of the internet)? There are artists out there who are called "popular" but who don't think they are popular. And there are artists out there who many wouldn't classify as "popular" but think they are the most popular thing since unde

Improving your Art
The dA +news platform is a great way to adress the community and teach them things about a wide range of topics, and of course to find information that you didn't even know you were looking for! Over time I've collected many great articles. This series will bring them together per topic so it's easy to find what you're looking for! Besides helping people find information they need, the aim of this series is also to promote quality on the news platform.
For this issue, I chose articles about Improving your Art. There may be more issues on this topic in the future
Articles may overlap on some areas, and may contain outdated info though I've tried to avoid this.
(For all you beta testers I included thumbs too! they're invisible to non-beta testers.)

How to get noticed on deviantART!:faq56:More Like This
I've had many people ask me this question so I'm going to elaborate the best I can.
As the FAQ above states, to get far on deviantART you HAVE to give feedback to get it. It's almost virtually impossible for you to get noticed without doing any of that. I learned that after a year of being here.
This is something that you will have to do in your dA lifetime in order to find your inspirations and be able to learn new techniques. When on the front page of deviantART it's probably the most diverse amount of artwork you'll see! Ranging from pixels to sculptures, tattoos to anime to poems, there has to be at least one that can catch your eye! There are millions of deviants here and even more submissions! Try searching for artworks that please you. You can even have a randomized search by using stuff like the random d
