hi hi, oof I dunno. I think it’s luck really - the internet is so unpredictable with what it likes, loves and mehs and some of my stuff just got caught in the net. Also online popularity is definitely not a direct correlation of how talented/skilled you are as an artist - so I am always very aware of that and have so much to learn and practice. I’m still only starting out.
My advice for anyone wanting to get their art/content seen is to post frequently, post honestly (people love to see sketches and scribbles not just finished pieces) and try to keep personal posts/reblogs to a minimum or keep a separate art blog. Most importantly: enjoy it enjoy it E N J O Y I T
