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. Special thanks to danlev who checked the numbers against the database to confirm they were accurate back in July.


Since the last time the data was recorded back in July, not much has changed. Thanks to ellasita12345 for pointing out that Zeronis was missing from the list at #41. The biggest gainers in the period were shilin and agnes-cecile who both moved up three spots to #15 and #44 respectively. zemotion dropped 3 spots to #18 and heise dropped 4 spots to #47. redjuice999 dropped out of the top 50. Everyone in the list gained watchers in the period, excelpt for kris-wilson who lost 170 watchers since July.

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.

oh thank you very much

All of these people all so talented. Of course, it's not a big surprise Yuumei is #1. Her art is awesome! There are also many other talented artists that will get to this list in time. it's just that they haven't been here as long.
I'm also very surprised sakimichan isn't a senior member.
elee0228 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014
Yup, I don't know what the criteria is to make senior member, though I would've thought Sakimichan would qualify whatever it is.
3vapup Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it's that you have to be active on the site for 10 years or more.
elee0228 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014
some of the senior members have been here for less than 10 though. alicexz has only been here for 6 years.
3vapup Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh. I don't know then.
