Hey folks,

how are you all? For me, everything is okay (at least I think). I changed some things on gtgraphics.de again and I'm slowly diving more into the whole freelance thing ;) I really enjoy the independence :eager:

Oh and I'm about to get my 6,000th watcher. But somehow, you guys are unwatching me and the number of watchers is getting smaller instead of getting bigger :D WHY? :D

I'll tell you one thing 6000th watcher is senseless,
I thing 6666th watcher (I guess you've got your 5555th, already)...
that sounds good, instead this round numbers, which makes me feel stereotype like =P

kann auch sein, dass dich viele wegen dem "^" watchen und dann bemerken, dass sie nicht wirklich was davon haben.
Es gibt auch Leute, die geben nen watch nur um einen zurück zu kriegen...

Mister Tobi, please forgive this honest opinion, but you asked for it! It's true that you post a new picture once in 6 months, but that won't make people unwatch you. Usually the pic is great, and whenever i see on my list for the day a new one from you, i leave it for last (because i expect it'll be the best pic for the day and i'm gonna look at it for some time). BUT! When you're not posting pictures you keep bugging your watchers with journals and polls, asking which of your pics we like the most, and are we getting messages about your pics and are we watching your other account and why are we not commenting and so on. Basically you keep whining for attention and more and more pageviews. Many people will think this is kind of uncool, you know. I have been many times on the verge of unwatching your journal, but since you post here links to the monthly sci-fi collection and news, i leave it be. But i'm a VERY patient person. Others might just get too annoyed.

Hehe thanks for your honest impression/opinion.

Nevertheless it makes me sad somewhat as I didn't had the intension to bug someone. To some extend, I can follow you. But regarding my journal and poll history, there are sooooo many other topics in between the self-promotion (and self-promotion is a part of every artist and therefore shouldnt be a problem).

1 image in 6 months? Then you must be missing a lot of them indeed ;) :giggle:

That's no offence. It's just a try of clarification! :)

You think i might have missed some! Oh no! (runs to check) :D I mean i'd like to see something new more often (i'm greedy). Don't worry too much about abundant selfpromotion. When it gets too much i laugh about it a bit and that's all. Because you're already quite popular too, you have to agree! Just giving you ideas how someone might react, it's always interesting to hear opinions of people very different from you, right? For example I just can't comprehend why you worry about a few unwatching you when you're near 6000 watchers! Please don't worry about stupid stuff like this!

Hmm, I do remember un-watching quite a few people a while back, obviously you are safe or you wouldn't be getting this comment now =p But my main reasons for un-watching some is:..

They are not active: - Most of my fave artists on here go months between submissions anyway, so I'm used to that (the better the artist, the more likely they need to dedicate most of their time to commissions and jobs) but once it gets to the point where I'm seeing 1 or 2 deviations from them per year at best - there's little reason to keep watching them :movingon:

They change what they do: - Many argue that change and trying new things is always good. I can see how it helps an artist grow so I'd say good for them :) but if their new art-style or subject is something I have no interest in and feel nothing for regardless of how "great" it's represented. Then there's no reason for me to keep watching unless I've became good friends with the artist. There's tons of realy talented and popular artists I don't watch simply because the subject they often draw dosn't appeal to me, so when an artist changes to that, it would be better for their own artistic success but I will lose interest, since the generic popular digital art is rarely of what I like :p

That's all I can think of, two reasons - but each hopefully gives a clear explaination of why one might lose interest in watching another. If it makes you feel any better, the amount of my watchers continueing to show interest in what I do has dropped too. I personally feel like I peaked last year :p

Yea I know what you mean. Maybe some persons just lost interest in my work or do think I'm inactive (as gm.... I left the site without telling anyone :D :giggle:)

But yea thats life. And I'm really thankful for all the watchers though. I never expected that much :O

I think that people are unwatching you for two reasons.
Maybe they're leaving deviantart.
Or maybe you don't upload much and they think you're inactive so they unwatch you?
That kinda sucks if it's true.
Oh well, good luck getting your 6000th watcher!
I didn't even get my 200th lol

Haha but that's because you're really busy since you're a mod.
How long do you usually take on each space art that you make?
I usually take between 3-5 hours.
But I know the more advanced artists usually space like 10 hours+

hmm about 5-10 hours. but sometimes it takes more time :D I don't count the hours ;)
