I mean, someone with alot of followers can post a beveled cube or intentionally bad art and get lots of likes and comments or whatever and hit the front page. Quality is often popular, but not always.
I've clicked on so many dumpsters and barrels that were labeled mature, get's me every time.
This made my day.
I am scared of the day Artstation will be implementing the google algorithm and only show you artworks based on your web history.
Or maybe we will still be seeing only boobs and wooden floors after that.
My Artstation feed would be entirely full of cute baby bats, cactus models and Peter Capaldi and I would be okay with this.

WTF? I just went on Artstation to get some inspiration and to see what's new, and the front page is riddled with tits, asses and chicks in suggestive poses with little to no clothes. My question is - do artists do these kind of pieces for views? I mean, you look into any of these pieces, and they have thousands of views and likes, then there are some stunning environments, sculpts, and some beautiful art in general, that once you hold for more than a second and appreciate the work and thought that has been put into it, and they have little to no views and likes, like wtf? Do people just scroll through works, see tits and upvote? I mean, if I want people to notice my work, should I add tits to everything? It's just the idea that I'm getting from watching Artstation feed.What are your thoughts on this matter?
What I find interesting is the way these sort of conversations always seem to create the biggest misunderstandings.Someone wondering how come there is quite a lot of [insert name of the thing] somewhere, doesn't mean that this person is against [insert name of the thing], enjoys [insert name of the thing], would like to see less of [insert name of the thing], or enjoys rubbing their face against [insert name of the thing]. This is just a question, without any value judgement besides the one one wants to apply to it after the fact (and of course since this is The Internet Of 201X ... be offended by it).
