You know that thing famous artists do where they make an attention journal saying something like "I pumpernickel."
And within the hour 1000 people come in saying c*** like "I pumpernickel too! :happybounce:" ":iconwhatyoudidthereplz:" "omgosh thats so funny lol" "ikr?" "I like pickles." "Pumpernickel is my favorite"
And I'm going through the comments like "....................................................:iconayfkmplz:...................................................."

It's not wrong to swap fandoms, but it's a kinda sad when they stop drawing for the fandoms I like entirely! I hate it mostly when they leave doujinshi on hiatus!

Although I know artists are free to draw anatomy as they please, I really can't stand unnaturally huge breasts. Personally it can ruin an amazingly beautiful style. The other peev I have is a lack of updates, but I'm not one to complain on that issue.. ;^^ I myself never find the time to update.

Ugh, can I choose all of them??? Honestly, I can't complain much, because I can't draw/paint/write/whatever it is people do on dA. I just unwatch and check the page periodically for updates.

I don't mind attitude or even some backbone because I find alot of artists are pretty spineless but what urks me the most is when they get a god complex, when they can do no wrong and think they own the whole of da just because of how they draw and who are their friends

Asks for money for personal reason. If it was for an art project, or anything else la Kickstarter, it's okay. But asking for money to one's fans on deviantArt for completely personal reasons is unwarranted, in my opinion. This is an art site, not a soup kitchen.

I think the worst thing they can do is only ever draw one type of thing. I ended up dropping a lot of amazing top level artists off my watch list because even though the quality of their works was great I was tired of seeing the same thing over and over again and it got quite boring and predictable after a while.

Turn out to be a douche/whiny.. or a whiny douche...
I admit this is unrelated to their artwork, so I wouldn't say it's the most annoying thing an artist can do. But it /is/ one of the most annoying things that a person can do.
Stop drawing/ hardly ever update...
I find that less annoying and more...sad? I don't think annoying is the right word.
Their art quality dropping, or they aren't trying to get better/improve anymore...
It would be sad to see the quality dropping, but not annoying. I could just stop following them. And improving isn't that easy; the better you are, the harder it is to improve. To be annoyed that someone isn't improving (at a pace you can see) strikes me as silly. :s

Swap fandoms/ start drawing something I am not interested in...
Heaven forbid my favorite artists have OTHER INTERESTS than stuff I love.

Post too many drawings...
...I used to think so, but then I realized that I had the option to stop following their deviations. I just periodically check their page whenever I feel like it, now that DA has more options.

I get annoyed about the artist never answering their fan's comments. Yes, I knoooow there is a lot of comments sometimes. Like, good artist make journals thanking all their followers, bad artist never say anything.
I hate bad attitudes. Nuff said.
I also hate it when I watch a person because I like their style, fanart, comics etc and suddenly all they draw is their stupid OC or whatevs. Most of thei original characters are annoying tbh :P
I'm currently watching this girl who made these awesome fan comics and then she stopped. And all she draws is her annoying fursona and this other OC.

An artist attitude can completely ruin them for me. I just won't comment usually, and still recommend them to others if their art is worth it, but other than that, I just avoid them, their journals, and everything that is not their artwork.

I don't like it when professional artists use their online professional networks to spout of political dogma instead of focusing on art. 'Tis really annoying. I never want to be that person. =/

why isn't "drawing themselves naked and saying it's "fanservice" for a fictional character they ship themselves with" an option? Or "they're too in love with themselves and it's really obnoxious but I really like their style so I'm stuck in this limbo of "to watch or not to watch""?

I hate it when their quality goes down or they stop caring about what they post and when they get all whiny about either their art and how much they "suck" or something stupid like trolls or a critique. I also hate it when they go from loving original work and doing that with a little fanart to only fandom.

I understand people get busy and it's hard to draw/update all the time, I've been there. So I can't complain about that.

Not answering to fans' comments.
I know they can't answer to every single person, if they have lots of watchers.. but hey, some months ago I suggested a DD to an admin, who later decided to feature this artist, and I didn't even get a mere "Thank you!". Do I ask too much?
I believe it's really rude being an artist in an art community and not caring at all about your watchers or fans.

The thing that bothers me the most is when they keep drawing their OC doing the same thing every time.
And only their OC.
Without even giving them a background, or even effort to really draw him other than what looks like a sketch.
This is why I quit watching Daenarys.

Hard to annoy me... but...
suddenly dedicating everything to some fandom I'm not in.

Makes me wish I was. :iconsadcraiplz:
MAKES ME LONELY. *sob*


But hey, it's their art, so I just admire but don't comment or fave. I feel guilty doing so if it's a fandom I'm not in, though lately not so much. I just hide in my loneliness.

Gonna move from vague to specifics here and say false advertisement.

My favorite artist offered me a high quality signed and numbered print at a reasonable price. One that we both agreed on. Then, he just starts ignoring me for no reason whatsoever. I end up not getting my print without him even caring to tell me why. Worst, no ironic part is he blogs about how he hates bad customer service a week later.

Seriously, having the "WHY WON'T YOU TAKE MY MONEY" feeling is terrible. Especially because I used to respect this person for his professionalism. Heck, I still do respect him but with an odd lingering resentment now.

what is especially bad is when an artist doesnt upload any art for months and then suddenly, almost a year later, posts a journal saying theyre moving on from dA ._.
