depends on whether or not im expecting a reply back, If its a simple compliment, i understand people would get heaps and not want to have to constantly say 'thank you' all the time XD

Rarely. XD

But I'm not too bothered since I know ppl have their lives to deal with. I think I do this a lot too, so I'm the last person to complain about this. DX

Depends on WHAT it is (and also how many comments said person gets). If you ask a question and get no reply, it's annoying, but if an artist has tons of watchers I can't expect them to have the time to through and reply to them all.

It doesn't bother me because I don't even answer half of mine
Kofs* Namely the ones from like January that I still haven't answered. Sorry about that >.<

It's okay. c: You don't have to answer any if you don't feel like it, I can imagine it being too hard if the comments are too old and too many xD

Depending on the circumstances, a comment un-replied to can be terribly annoying, or just "meh". After all, some people have lives outside the Internet (unlike yours truly XP) and can't always reply right away, or even at all. =P

I have no idea, since my non-Internet life died sometime after I became a Deviant. :giggle:

It bothers me when they think they're all that and they don't respond, but there is not a lot of comments and they're obviously not busy, they're just too lazy to interact with their watchers and don't feel the need to do it when they're already oh so popular.

But then again you also see the people not even FAVORITING fanart somebody made for them, like who do you think you are, excuse you.

I see.
Yeah, it really irks when people absolutely ignore art you made for them, because whenever that happens I will assume they think it's a piece of crap. x')

yes
Even if it isn't the most 'aw worthy' thing, somebody took time out of their day to draw you something.
Aeehhh....

I personality don't care all that much. I hardly ever reply to comments on my work unless I have something to say or it's on my main page. It's just usually the same thing and I run out of ideas on how to say "Thank you."

Same, I do reply to comments but sometimes it feels really weird to say thank you over and over again xD

: D Not at all. An artist usually at least reads all of their comments, therefore I am a-okay with not getting a reply. UuU I mean, generally people on dA just do art and upload for the sake of learning in their spare time, I don't feel it should be required or even expected for them to take so much time out of their day just to reply to all of their comment.

Yeah, indeed, I don't really need a reply, I only care when I have a question that they haven't answered anywhere else. I find it sad how some artists are viewed as arrogant because of that.

It doesn't really matter for me, because I often forget about it immediately :XD:
But for some artists I always except an answer, especially when I give some things they can work on or things that are great :dummy:
