I enjoy doing art, but i aim to please. That’s my problem. I do random art but i don’t know what derpibooru’s tastes. Can anypony tell me what derpibooru users enjoy? Maybe give ideas and requests of your own as well? :3

As Scott McCloud always says, your job as an artist isn’t to figure out how to fit into genres, but instead to invent new genres – but that never stopped anyone from doing prudent and meaningful market research to make sure they understand their audience.

So, by way of some super cheep market research, and just in terms of being crowd pleasing, here’s the most popular images on the whole site

Speaking just in terms of raw volume and the scores for the art, here’s some very popular tags ranked by score:

Kissing – 185757 images, highest score = 3973
Cuddling – 6630 images, highest score = 3973
Sex – 86546 images, highest score = 3888
Penis – 113129 images, highest score = 3646
Vagina – 41848 images, highest score = 3183

So, while there many NSFW images on the site that have high scores, the "softer" approach seems to always win in terms of popularity of individual images.

And here’s every tag on the site, ranked by the number of images with those tags.

I don’t know if those score based searches or tag numbers give you any inspiration, but in a lot of ways; that’s what your audience here likes.

Panic! At The Tag Change
@Crippling Depression
Well if you’re really curious what I like…

For both SFW and NSFW, sirens, of course, emo stuff, femboys/traps, solo male, gay, monster ponies, piss, edgy stuff, gore… Anything I draw, basically.

Okay. I went looking around, now i wonder what i should do:
Something cute?
Something sexy?
Idk…

I have a few ideas like:
Some butts or snuggling?
Or incest or anthro ponies?
Freindshipping, or shipping in general?

Cuddling butts is always good. Snuggling butts is also good. In fact, anything involving butts is good.

Because butts.

In all seriousness though, tor some reason, in this last season fighting about ships has become a continuing problem with some of our users, so … while I don’t want to advise against creating shipping artwork … if you do shipping artwork don’t be surprised if it ends up with some drama on the image. Especially if the ship involves either Discord or Celestia or Fluttershy or … well, let’s be honest. Anypony or anycreature involved in a ship that you post in the next couple of months will probably result in a flurry of "U! NO U!".

… for me? Octavia and Vinyl. Or Doctor Whooves and Derpy (or Rose … because canon). But those are just my OTPs.

I personally would also love to see some really romantic art between Aero and Glitter, but … that’s getting into OC territory and I’m not sure if the OC owners would appreciate that or not … but I would … 9_6

What I really love seeing is artists who continually strive to improve their artwork and develop their own style. Art is something that if you keep doing it, you’ll keep getting better, and I enjoy seeing how artists change over the years. No matter how good your latest image may be, your next image always has the potential to be even better, and when artists chase after that potential, that’s my favorite thing to see.

Perfectionist.
For SFW. To cut it short, people enjoy their waifus being cute and lovable.

For NSFW. They also like their waifus acting like whores having lots of sex.
