I don't know. I know that there are shows that are not-so-popular like Tom & Jerry Kids
(with only 894 deviations, if you add quotation marks around it) in comparison to the now-popular Disney's Frozen
(35,000 something deviations. Phineas and Ferb
, with 70,000 something deviations, has even more.). Maybe deviants should work together to create a "Undiscovered Shows" feature, which is a feature of any show that has less than 1000 deviations submitted.
I was also asking this question to myself: Should original art be well-known to rather than just relying on fan art as the key to being popular?
Because I was wondering why deviants who write "how to be popular" tutorials write "DO NOT DRAW ORIGINAL ART. DRAW FAN ART THAT EVERYONE LIKES." My opinion is ,"No matter what type of art you do, just keep on doing your best, and ignore the spam messages you get every day."
What's your opinion? I like to hear from you. If you don't understand, never mind.
