Mmm I freelance to pay my bills and such, so I guess I could be considered pro, yes. I devote myself to it since it IS what I depend on. As fae as watchers go, I depend on them too. I have many private clients I do work for on other sites. Most of the people who would order from me on dA a commission, public or private, are watchers. So having a fair amount is helpful, but it also should never be used to define success. I know people here with amazing artwork, and few watchers, yet they make a killing irl.
So please do not ever compare such things. Also consider some people collect watchers, i mean that they "offer things" if you watch them, and because people love getting free stuff, tgey do it. So often, I put little importance on stats.I just look at the art and what my reaction is to that ary since that is what really matters anyway. XD
