No, in fact, it might even discourage me from commenting.

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.

I see! I can understand that ^^

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.

That makes sense, yes!

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.

Ahh, I don't look at how many one person gets, personally :0

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

I leave a comment, regardless. Though, I'm always happy when I see a reply! :3

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.
