More Information


In the journal entry celebrating DeviantART's 15th birthday, the top 10 deviants by watcher count was included. Before that, there wasn't really a toplist anywhere else.  It falls to the community to build it's own 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. Special thanks to danlev who checked the numbers against the database to confirm they were accurate back in July 2014. The initial lists were only the top 50. I expanded the list to 100 with this revision, though I'm not confident that it is 100% accurate.

Observations


Since the last update on May 8, 2015 there have been a lot of changes in the top 50. Mikeinel broke into the top 10, displacing Apofiss. Several deviants dropped in the standings, Wen-M, khaoskai, Kaze-Hime, and kerembeyit all falling 4 spots each.  New to the top 50 is Fukari.  Also shooting up the charts are KR0NPR1NZ (#24 up from #36) and DestinyBlue (#26 up from #49).  DestinyBlue received a Deviousness Award in July, which helped her gain a lot of watchers in this period.  

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.

The top 3 seems legit. Artgerm and Sakimichan are awesome, and very active, artists. I didn't know Yuumei but her gallery contains wonderful paints.

Your list will allow me to discover other artists.

I wouldn't want to be on the list it'd be like being pewdiepie or someone like that you'd probably get tons of hate too and everything you do on deviant art scrutinized.

Not necessarily, from what I've seen pretty much everyone loves sakimichan. If you're talented and at the top, most people will like you. A lot of people don't see PewDiePie as talented, so that's why they don't like him. Also there's not as much hate on deviantART as there is on YouTube.

Cool, thanks. He really gained a lot of watchers really quickly. Back in January, he only had ~59,000 watchers and it wasn't enough to make the list.  I'll add him next time I update.

Aha yup, where artists like loish would update 3-4 times per month she would upload like everyday. Not surprising since a lot of the people here tend to go for fanart :P

well I guess thats true, the more frequently an artist updates, the more of a chance that more users would discover them :) Yuumei has been here for a really long time hasn't she? Darn I can't even imagine DA without her :''O

mmh, I knew it, here in DA there isn't such high numbers like in YouTube. According to SocialBlade the most popular YT channel by subscribers is PewDiePie's channel with more than 33 MILLION subscribers. While the most popular deviant here don't even reach the 1 million mark. Of course that's because Youtube is more popular than DA (higher user base). You wrote that you are a "stat geek", could make some calculation/estimation of "weighted popularity". For example, having 100 Watchers here, in terms of popularity is like having X subscribers on YT. That information would be useful

DevArt has 40 million uniques a year. Youtube has 800 million uniques a month. So traffic ratio is 1:240.  If you use that as your multiplier, then Sakimichan's ~300k watchers is equivalent to 72 milllion subscribers on youtube.

It's possible, though you'd need to increase by 25,000 watchers before the next time I update. I plan on updating in March or April. I'm tracking 20 other deviants that are above 60,000 watchers so it might be hard for you to do it. Good luck!

Watcher count is public information. You can get this data using Google-Fu. I mention the search I used in the original post. I managed to get confirmation from one of the admins that the data was correct in a later post.
