Popularity stamp by MyStamps Popularity stamp by MyStamps
Pretty self-explanatory stamp...

Here on DA, and anywhere else, popularity fells good, but it sometimes comes at a price I am not willing to pay: my self-esteem.

This stamp just about sums up my philosophy. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go listen to classical music, read Confucian philosophy, and draw.

Thank you so much for making this! For a long time I was very popular(getting 100-200 pageviews a day), but I wasn't happy. Whenever I drew what I wanted to draw, I would lose pageviews and watchers. So, I finally decided to draw what I wanted. I'm not as popular as I was, but I'm a lot happier now.

You don't have to be popular for everyone to know who you are. Everyone at school knows who I am. (they also think I'm crazy but who cares about that?)

I tend to like a lot of rather unpopular things. People tend to look down on me for it. But, I am not looking for the approval of those with chaotic ideals.

I agree with this stamp one thousand and eight percent.
Most people want to be liked. Some people want to be popular, and that's fine. I personally will not give up the things that I like doing just to gain friends who won't be there when I decided to do stuff that I like doing again.

Exactly how I feel.

I would enjoy popularity, but I will not do anything to lower myself to gain popularity.

I draw what I love, I support what I love.

If I will become popular that would make me happy, but it is no where near the most important thing to me.

All you need to do to become popular here is draw/photograph slutty pictures of girls.

Sure, I'd love to be popular, but what's the point if you got that way by being someone you're not? ;) Then YOU'RE not really the popular one, who you're trying to be is.

Finally! I've seen too many stamps submitted by users who defend themselves when it comes to drawing things they like, which COINCIDENTALLY consists of extremely popular fandoms like Naruto, therefore making them popular. The thing is, some of those artists only start drawing that stuff BECAUSE it becomes popular so they can get popular. To me, that's stooping down to a level that I definitely don't admire. Seriously, what's wrong with submitting original art and being praised by the people who genuinely like it?

I do want to be a "popular" artist, but I'll only draw what I like, so I actually don't give a damn if I'm popular or not:o But I agree with this stamp. The things people do to become popular:no: Especially in school:no:

A great Qoute... but if i'd use it I'ìd be a hypercrict :(... But luckily i can't draw shit and my grammer is my worse enemy.

I'd stop finishing a story if it's not popular enough .... :\ I'm just stupid, aren't I?

I do most of my work in FF.net
