While its nice its not a big deal. But I LOVE getting those replies after I just drooled over a EPIC piece of art. XD

eeeeEeHHHHHHHHH I mean, for the most part, it doesn't factor in at all. But then also knowing I'm likely to get a reply is sometimes discouraging on some days, except in the case of a handful of people (like you). I don't know. It's kind of nerve-wracking sometimes. I don't understand myself.

Writing doesn't always come easily to me. I feel the effort is more worthwhile if at least one person reads what I wrote, and the only way I'll know that is if they respond.

I usually only comment if I have something funny or clever to say. Whether or not they reply is irrelevant, unless I'm asking a question.

It depends, if the person gets like a billion comments a day, then I don't mind. But if they get like 10 on their page, then it kinda makes me upset.

I have an idol and I really love her work, I used to comment on every single piece, but I only got a reply for maybe 1 in 10 comments, so now I don't comment much unless I really want to.

I think I'm more inclined to comment on something if I know the artist is going to reply. It's a good way to meet new people and make friends.
But generally I don't comment because I feel like I'm just saying the same thing over and over xD

For me, actually, I just comment when I feel the need to, you know? If it's a close friend, I comment. If the artist asked for any critques or thoughts, I comment. If I think this newer artist needs some love, I comment. Heck, if the artwork is awesome and I just have to say that, I comment! Its amazing if people reply, but all I'm hoping is that the artist at least saw what I had to say.

I'll usually comment either way, but it makes me feel better to know that the person will actually read it.

Whether the artist replies or not doesn't ever stop me from commenting, as I just like to let people know I appreciate their work no matter what. However, the person replying does make them feel more "real" and I really enjoy engaging with the artists I follow.

It definitely helps if I know they will reply, but I won't always NOT comment if they don't reply. But I feel more motivated to write feedbacks if the artist replies fairly regularly c:

For me its actually a big plus, i mean if im following someone and i comment on their stuff, just to notice they dont comment back...it makes me self aware, like what if they though my comment was meaningless... But its just my opinion
