I sort of experienced this in my previous gallery, which caused me to abandon it. After I did, it immediately started receiving comments, but… I just couldn't bother responding to them, unfortunately. XD" Anyway, if your gallery's not receiving any comments, you should just keep updating it. People would do it, eventually.

      I don't receive a lot of comments, but that's okay. If you're looking for more, post more in your gallery and then comment in others. Getting your name out there is the best way to do it.

      I should update my gallery soon, but I'm in a creative slump right now. I'm getting out of it, but having trouble shaking it off completely.

      I can understand how lack of comments can make you feel dejected. Really, really well. But there's really no way out of it. Apart from, maybe, commenting in other galleries yourself and putting out content whenever you can. But things have become better recently. Most galleries do get comments. Since A&D as a whole has become much more active than before. Really happy to see that. <3;

      I do not like seeing dejected artists. So I always feel like I have an obligation to post in all galleries I see - some words can mean a lot. But time. Time is such a scarce quantity that it gets in my way. :< I'll probably be able to go on a spamming posting spree after my exams are done in May.

      Been planning to take requests in my gallery, but not completely sure if I should; if I get too many requests, I'm afraid of not being able to get to them all. I'm also scared that I might be rushed by others—another thing to worry about. I'll probably open up requests for some limited time and see how it goes. If I like it, though, then I may keep it that way. :P

      It's always really sad when you don't get a lot of comments.. I remember being crushed each time I uploaded art to dA but they ended up with one or two comments at most years back, hah. :( But like Sakazuki said, a lot of the lack of comments biz can be alleviated if people thought to comment on others' galleries rather than just awaiting replies in their own threads.

      Please I can go months without getting a single comment, and update 5 - 7 times without receiving so much as a sentence. The problem is that people just want feedback, they don't want to give feedback. I do the best I can with it, and I always try to post in new galleries.. but it gets cumbersome after a while. :<

      Still, A&D is buzzing, and way more active than its ever been. It's my baby and I love it no matter how much it hurts me. <33

      Hey, if I ran a signature contest, who would be in? Or maybe another icontest? Thoughts? :)

      I was a sensitive little bunny years ago so if I got no comments I assumed my art was unloved and just hid in a hole. Thankfully that's waaaay in the past, though. ~o~

      And as for contests I'm much more on board with iContest. They're a lot of fun to make and I absolutely adore them.. signatures take me a lot longer and given how picky I am I probably wouldn't ever finish, hah. Especially since I'm going to be busy for the next few weeks.

        I'd love to participate in both but I'll disappear for 2 months again from March 4 so I probably won't be able to. :(

        I'm definitely a-OK with icontest. As for signature, I probably won't be able to participate, as my access to Photoshop is very limited at the moment. Things like tags, banners, and large pieces take extremely long time to make (for me, anyway), since you have to put a lot of thought into them when creating. In addition to that, I'm lacking motivation, too, kind of. :(

        Icontests are fun because icons take no time at all to make. If you plan on hosting any future signature contests, give me like 2-3 weeks to enter, heh. I couldn't compete against Dero anyway. :<

        Like I said, I don't really have any choice. XD; I'll be leaving home from March 4 onwards - no PC access. Can't really do anything about it. :( I shall participate in any contests that take place from June-July onwards, though! And go on a posting/commenting spree in A&D too. Because that is when I'll be free of a lot of ♥♥♥♥ and be back home. n_n;

        ^ ALSO SHUT UP SISTER. YOU'RE AMAZING AND I SUCK. :<

              I think it'd be pretty cool if it were "vintage" (or something along the lines). Basically, we'd take a stock image, make it into an icon, and add effects to have it look like an old picture of sorts.

                  Oh that sounds pretty cool. I could get on board with that~ trying to think of things that would take to being made vintage though, hmm.

                  Sounds pretty neat, Although i can see if we go for vintage pretty much every image is going to have some sort of greyscale of sepia overlay and some damage filters...

                    Well that's where it gets challenging, right? Making your own stand out with that going on.

                    I LIKE IT

                    Next Icontest's gonna be vintage. Any subject, any material, any whatever; it just has to look vintage, either by way of what the icon is of or how it looks. Based on who's icon best captures the theme of "vintage".

                    o wait that means I have be a mod
