while i personally enjoy all types of art, i can tell you some things ive noticed from posting!!

people definitely prefer art of canon characters over OCs!!
that, and the fact that this piece has a significantly higher rating than these ones tells me that adorable, sticker-like drawings are a good bet.. anything cute really grabs people by the balls, even if it takes less effort than bigger pieces!!

im not sure what the most popular ponies are, but people really seem to like the princesses, starlight, and rainbow dash if i had to guess!!

ultimately though, i think you should just draw what makes you happy, even if its not whats the most popular!! people will appreciate you for your passion no matter what it ends up being, and itll definitely show through in your art. if you insist, you could start off doing attention grabbing pieces to get known first, then relax a bit and do whatever you want.. good luck!!

While you do have a point that sometimes drawings that have less effort in them get more attention, I wouldn’t call the difference in overall score significant. Currently the first piece has a score of 125, while the other two have 101 and 102. It’s only a difference of 23 when the rating of an image can range from negative numbers to over 1000.

thats true that the range in score can be much wider than in that particular one, and in other cases where its happened to me, but it has happened quite a FEW times.. or even if the scores get close, cute, simple images get there much much quicker. i just didnt want to dump ALL of the examples here because itd look like making this all about me
