I tend to let it go because most of the time you can't be 100% sure if they half assed it or just didn't have the skill sets to make it look "good" in the viewers opinion.

Just because I don't view it as art doesn't mean that is the same opinion as others. I really don't mind if it's on the page, it just isn't my cup of tea.

An artist can't help it if their watchers put something on the front page. It actually enrages me when someone's pissed at the artist, as if them working their ass off to get enough exposure that even their lesser works make the front page is such a crime. It just reeks of bitterness and jealousy to me.

I would get annoyed but I would leave it alone. I don't like to write hate comments but I don't get sometimes why they are put up on the front page when there are other pictures or stories that definitely deserve to be put up.

It can be irritating, but who am I to judge? It's not really their fault that they're popular. I may not like it, but obviously a lot of people do, and that's good for them. The only thing that really angers me is when things that are blatantly pornographic and just there to get attention are on the front page.

It's not their fault it's on the front page, it's the fault of all the people viewing. The front page isn't about 'good art' that being an impossible thing to judge since everyones opinion on art is different, it's about 'popular' art
Popular doesn't always equal good and vice versa

That's simply a personal view. If it gets views and faves, then it seems that other people can find it good or funny.
So I get over it -clicking on it and writing a comment just helps it to get higher on the frontpage. Some people should notice that and stop writing hate comments on deviations they find not worth it to be on the frontpage.
Also, it's surely not the artist's fault. The more watchers one has and the more groups they submit their work in, the more clicks and faves they get for sure, than someone that has just a very few watchers and doesn't submit their deviations in any group.

Well, the front page isn't really about the best artists, more like who's the most popular. There's a reason why someone is being watched that much, whether it's because their art took days to create and is fantastic, or if it was slopped together and is there just for the giggles. I do get a bit irritated when I see tits or twat shots because all I can think is "most of those views are from pervs.." But really... I don't care. It's stupid to get all worked up over something... though it does help to catch art thieves on occasion

If the work is shit (eg. a stick), but the artist's comments are good and give reason then I'm fine with it. Also, a lot of the time I couldn't care less. It just means that a lot of people agree that a certain piece of work is good.

I still don't know what the front page is xD but when an artist gets a DD more than three or four times and has over a million views then why would they feature that artist again? it's not the artists fault, but the ones who feature it.

I really don't mind. It's not the artist's choice what gets put on the front page, nor is the front page reserved only for the best artwork. It's just what's popular at the time. Besides, that's what we have Daily Deviations for.

Eh. What counts as good art is generally largely up to opinion. So, if I don't like it, that's my problem. I have no need to complain about it. :/

I won't bother with it, because it won't make difference, and also because everyone has their own oppinions, if it's on the front page it's because the oppinion of some is that that thing is good enough to be there, I guess :shrug:

Being able to draw bad quality art and still make it to the front page is somewhat admirable with all the amazing artists that's here on da. You can't hide the fact that caching peoples attention is worth more in the world of art than your ability to draw, take photos or whatever.

I feel sorry for those who spend their time fuzzing about other peoples art insted of spending time improving their own.

I would leave a comment on how its obvious that they made a wonderful sketched piece, and I would adore seeing it brought to full completion unless it stated somewhere in their artist comment that it was simply a sketch. If it is simply a sketch then it is probably on the front page because the eye often searches for really nice things we are amazed by, or by things that we think we could produce ourselves.

When I see something rushed or something that doesn't appeal to me personally I just chalk it up to differences in taste but what really gets under my skin is random pictures of half dressed women. I understand that a nude shot can be artistic but the nudity in itself isn't. You can't just hold a camera out at arms length and take a shot down your shirt and call it art, boobs aren't art! They're awesome and are nature's ultimate weapon of mass distraction but they are not artistic! Sorry for ranting but I felt good to get that off my chest.

It's a real dick move to go and comment on the artist's page that their art isn't worthy of being on the front page. It annoys me more than the art itself. If it's a popular artist, it's bound to be up there.

It's not like they're getting DD's for their work.
It's just a small feature that will be gone in a day, or even a few hours.
Get over it, dA.

As much of the people stated, its not the artist's fault. So if Moni does some kind of a sketch that is in its early EARLY stages it still has a lot of chances to get on the front page cuz there are a lot people that will look into the notifications folder and see that Moni made something and they(we) will imidatly go and see what it is. We might not even like the piece, it might even be (really) bad. Still it has a big chance to get on the front page cuz there were a lot's of people that looked at it. SO nope not annoyed. I mostly look at the "Newest" art posted. A lot of people out there that do a job a lot better then moni(not that im saying that moni does the job bad, its just that there are others that do it better)

As most people said, its NOT the artists 'fault' that they get on the frount page ( Or DD's for that matter. ) Those are the choices of other people; not the person making the work.

And you know what; time is over friggen rated. What might take some people DAYS to do something, may take someone else a hour or two tops. Or even minutes. -shrug-

Even though it bugs me to see something that looks kind of doodle-like on the front page, I can't get mad at them for uploading it, or because other people got it onto the front page.
