(Note: This is from a Twitter perspective.) I'm not popular at all on anything and I have this issue where I want to become a popular artist as I feel like how much attention your art gets determines your worth as an artist and even a person; if you don't get a lot of attention, you suck. I really do love most of my creations, but I also get most of my motivation from validation. To me, popularity is not a bonus, but an absolute need if I want to be happy and is probably my 2nd highest art priority (under having art as good as my idols, of course). Maybe I'm just envious of artists who get so many likes/favs, fans, fanart, and attention, regardless of their art skill. If it's because of being active, like everyone says, it's hard for me because being ignored when I comment makes me feel crappy. I'm stumped on what to do about this. My goal is to be like my idols: really good artists that many adore and look up to, emphasis on "many adore and look up to". Is this a bad goal?
