I don't fave images that i upload. just the fact that i upload them is already evidence i liked it and would have probably faved them if i somebody had uploaded them before me.

@lynxpet
you are also forgetting the notion that there is also a lot less to say about such matters, because most of the really good artpieces are so far above the average artists' skills, that they cannot give constructive critique, while amateur porn often leaves room for critique or commenting.


@JustLikeTheNewGuy
… first up: Goremise said that it was "almost forced" meaning that there is a very strong indication that porn gets noticed before art, so to speak.
Lynxpet explained in quite detail the dynamic of behind this indication.
and now I'm throwing in my 2 cents.

The forcing behind the phenomenon of porn being noticed before the art is that the human brain is quite amusing in it's makeup. It has a really ancient basic nerve-system, a nice reptile portion, and that big shiny new brainmass that separates us from the average animal.
While art, in many senses is one of the most respectable forms of communication, since it requires both practice, dedication and pasion in abundance to function. It stimulates a lot of this newer more fickle parts of our minds, and makes us think.
Sex, however, has been with our ancestors since the very beginning, and thus the drive to procreate is engrained so deeply in our biology it's nigh inescapable. Porn speaks to that truly primal urge.
It should slowly be becoming clear now why the great masters painted, sculpted and drew a lot of naked people of a certain body-type a lot. The herculian men and curvacious women of ancient greko-roman art are in many ways, their combination of the "lizard-brain" and "Human brain" in our species.

And to tie it all back together, the reason why people are more inclined to draw porn instead of "real art" is that porn gets noticed by our reptilian brain, and not our frontal cortex, our "human brain". This very much has the appearance of forcing due to it's innate success, and Art, in many ways, resembles the evolutionary arms-race, in that weaker strands are quickly cut off and discarded while sucessfull art gets propagated and is able to spread it's influence.

Forced by human nature. When a human looks at something it needs to very impress them. So what type of artwork on the internet works the most? Likely adult related because while cute and awesome art works, adult reaches primal wants and needs. A art museum piece with people that understand how awesome real paintings are would be searching very hard to find anything even here to "wow" them. Sure they might like the shading on the art up there but other than that blah.

The argument from a artist of Internet style is this. Adult art gets noted first, it will get fave saved to be used for "fun" later. Good pieces of art might get a physical wow out of the person but they might not save or even comment on it.

On derp more people talk about what the art piece is saying than how good it is.
Goremise

Derpi really has changed a lot over time, now artists are almost forced to pump explicit art out just to get noticed in the first place, then when they want to draw cute, and not explicit, their art actually gets noticed :/

it's good on moments like these when the explicit art is beaten though!

I noticed earlier today there were no explicit ones in there, even with my Spoilered Everything filter.
There were two safe, one semi-grimdark, and one questionable.
I don't know...

I remember this day. Back before I had joined the site.


@ED-SKaR
I like all popular images as long as they are cute and/or sexy, and they have to have some talent and effort put in for me me to fav them.

My 3 Day Top Scoring is always full of [EXPLICIT]cute ponies

I have explicit filtered and questionable spoilered, and it's a rare occurance that I get a set of four that doesn't have any questionable tagged, let alone without any suggestive.

Usually it's only when there is a cute, safe, animation or one of the really awesome piece like Vest's cutie mark caves.

I think clean art and pornographic art should be treated equally, although, yeah, pornographic art shall be only for adults, or if not, anybody 15 years old and above.

@Lawful Girly
Eh?

I take a pen and paper, and draw anything.

This….is art.

Anything else such as labels, abstract, furry, video game, retro, 3D 2D 4D paper art? What matters do these words mean?

Art tis art! Pixels to music to poems to photos! Art will rule the world forever!
