I've noticed something changed on dA recently, or maybe just my art has become less popular? Or Sonic art in general has become less popular?
It used to be that whenever I would upload a new, complete, colored piece of Sonic fanart, I would get lots of views and faves almost immediately and that would continue for a day or two, and then quickly taper off. Not just from my watchers, but from random people apparently just surfing dA. For the last year or so, though, when I first put up a new picture, I get a few views over the course of the day, which slowly tapers off over time. If my picture gets featured in a large group, even years after I made it, there will usually be a small rush of new views and faves for a day or two, and then that stops.
Anyone else experiencing this? Is it just me? My chosen subject? A change to dA's search or how people use dA or find art? I'm just curious as to why things seem to be different.
