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.

Observations


We have some significant changes since the numbers were last recorded in September. sakimichan has overtaken yuumei as the deviant with the most watchers! GENZOMAN joined the 100000-watcher club. ZeroNis made a huge leap from #41 back in September up to #26 as of today, the largest increase. Other notable gainers were Mikeinel and SenshiStock moving up 5 spots each to #14 and #29 respectively. arvalis is new to the list debuting at #44. khaoskai and doubleleaf fell 4 spots each to #30 and #32 respectively. heise is dangerously close to falling off the list at #50 after falling 3 spots.

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.

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.

I honestly like Yuumei better. Of course, Sakimichan's amazing too. I'd be lying if I said she didn't deserve it. But Yuumei... Her art has so much meaning. She'll always be my favorite <3

Considering yuumei has been #1 on this list for so long, I think it was time for a change.

I guess so. Sakimichan's and Yuumei's styles and focus are drastically different though, so it's kind of "fresh".

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.

I'm surprised that Jon-Lock isn't on the list. He's an amazing artist and his art has been featured multiple times. But then again, he's fairly new to this site so it makes sense that he doesn't have as many watchers as people that have been here for 11 years.

yuumei is one of my favorite artists so I'm really happy that she is first. Her Fisheye Placebo series is intellectual and thought-provoking.

I wished that zeldacw would gain more popularity and be on this list. Her MYth series is amazing.

I'll keep an eye on Jon-Lock he will probably break into this top-50 at the rate his watchers are growing.
