Planning to up my A game this year (that's right, Art) like I plan every year lol but this time with more confidence than I had previously (having nothing to do with art).
I submitted two sketches this week on both deviantart and Instagram virtually at same time.
On deviantart I have a pool of a little under 13k followers who could potentially see my work and on Instagram I have about 40 (strong!!!).
So it surprised me that I was seeing more "likeorship" on Instagram because based on math alone surely DA would be the place I would be most likely to share with the most people. It could be the work, they are sketches but it also could be the layout/way deviantart touches art to viewers.
Was curious what your experiences have been here lately and if there are in your experience better places for me to make my comeback.
Has DA lost it's relevance? Do I just need to up my game by a lot and if it's just my game why is Instagram different? Have you found more success on other sites? Should I just work on product and not worry about where it's showcased because if the art is good it'll speak for itself?
