There are a lot of factors that can affect how many views and likes a post receives. It’s possible that the artist you’re seeing is creating trendy artwork (for example, drip art was super popular for a couple of weeks) or participating in challenges.
It’s also important to keep in mind that different people like to see different things. What one person likes is different from what another person likes. We recommend creating art for yourself, as a way to express yourself.
If you create something that resonates with thousands of people, that’s awesome! But if you create something that’s seen by a couple hundred, that’s also really great. Don’t let the number of views or likes you receive dictate your success as an artist.
