Congratulations on the 10th edition! You've been doing a consistently good feature, and I've found plenty of great new talent through this. Not hard to find, you always say. Must be because you don't want to reveal your bag of tricks for finding them, I suspect.
They probably won't get much recognition with how the browsing experience works here. Most of the great artists that post on DA aren't involved in group activities and probably spend a minimum of time on the website. I guess people enjoy more artists that interact with them regularly. Something has to be done about the search algorithm to offer easier access to quality content for everyone. Looking for something popular is easy already.
How hard was it to find these four anyway? I bet you have a lot of people under your watch.
Thanks for your comment! Yes, I've definitely found it to be true that a lot of them don't participate that regularly in groups, forum activities, etc. All the more reason they need additional exposure for their talent I'm a true art enthusiast right down to my bones, so while finding these artists takes time and dedication, it's something I enjoy immensely As for finding them, it's not always hard if you know where to look and keep your searches dynamic and varied And yeah, I watch a lot of artists, lol. Please check out the other journals in the series, too!
