More Information

DeviantART doesn't publish a top list. There used to be a Popular Deviants section on the Today page. It measured Popular Deviants by pageviews, and was removed likely due to gaming. Watcher-count can be gamed also, but it's a decent indicator of popularity.

It falls to the community to build it's own top list. I gathered the initial names through Google-Fu and wading through a lot of DevART pages. It's the perfect project for crowd-sourcing. There's lots of reasons why a top list is useful. I'm a bit of a stat geek so I just like knowing stuff like this. I hope to keep this list updated over time to maintain its usefulness. Any help is definitely appreciated. It would be cool if an admin with access to the backend data could confirm our list is correct.


Since the last time the data was recorded in April, we have 2 new entries into the top 50. Thanks to danlev, who confirmed the data and told me about agnes-cecile who was missing from my list at #47. AquaSixio makes the list at #48, I'm not sure what he had before as he wasn't on my radar. AdamHughes just misses the cut at #51. larafairie fell off the list also and continued to lose watchers in this period. Biggest gainers since April are DanLuVisiArt who moved up 5 spots to #33, and nebezial who moved up 4 spots to #08. DanielaUhlig fell 3 spots to #39.

You can find the older archived rankings on the sidebar. Please fave this article if you found it useful. The more faves it gets, the higher it shows in search results for other people to find. I'll send a llama or a point back in thanks. Comments and faves are definitely appreciated.

Maybe you can also do another list for top-watched groups? :D
elee0228 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014
you can already get that list though just in the regular devart search...…
JacksonChen Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014  Student General Artist
But that list is not ranked properly... It simply shows groups with 10,000+ watchers.

hm... true...

It's kinda cool that I actually watched some of these accounts before seeing this list!
elee0228 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2014
I'd say chances are high that everyone watches some of these accounts.  That's why they are in the toplist, right?
