My question to all people out there- how do you get yourself to be known? Popular? Recognized (or at least recognizable!) as an Artist with a capital letter "A"?
It used to be easier. But right now I feel like deviant art has gotten to overwhelming and overwhelmed to help out any artist who really do need some substential support making their name and fortune somewhere out there in the world.
All these countless new groups... They seem to be pretty useless, at least from my perspective, to a person who has had no previous daily deviations or other kinds of recognition from the "gurus" of devian art.
In a way, I find it very sad. Because EVERY time I am browsing through the artworks in the "popular" search option, it seems that it is always the same people here over and over again that get all the honors. No names shall be called, but at this point I am confident that we all do know who I may have in mind.
Devian art has turned into a clique, where no one is willing to visit your page unless you are no of "the original great ones whom everybody knows already".
This is all for today.

Favourite genre of music: anything but country! Other than that, I'm pretty tolerant.
Favourite style of art: I try to stay openminded and to experiment a lot. However, there IS one thing I don't do, and that is sculpture. Believe me- tried it and failed miserably!
