i like a group of works from one artist.
its like a little teaser of what they ahve to offer and if i like it i look at their gallery, i like their gallery and their tastes i look at their favourites =]
i love all your features, but it's great when you choose a load of pics by different artists on a similar theme. you seem to be really good at both chosing a theme and choosing pics to feature in the theme.
single pics are good, but if it's not one i'm fussed on, i'm less likely to go and comment/look at the artist. with many thumbs, there's always more than one that will get a good look.
A number of works from the same artist are featured. Well, I think... Hard to be sure, but that choice suggests that I'm more likely to gain interest in the artist. But sometimes, a single picture does the job. BTW, genius idea to feature artists on the Shoutboard!
"A number of works without a theme by different artists are featured." That way, different styles and themes are covered, so I'll definitely find someone whose style I like and devWatch 'em. Also, I like to read a comment by you/ the suggest-er of the feature as to why you did/ they suggested the feature in the first place.
the lust section is fab, I tend to feature several artists in my journal, and do wonder if people go visit them. Your one big picture means I almost always go give that artist some love, but even in a larger feature I'll pick out a few faves to go see.
I usually like seeing either one big image that appeals to me (which can be hit or miss, I know), or a couple of images in a theme -- that way, there are more chances of me seeing something I really like, and going over to their gallery (or, at least, faving that piece)
I like the lust section in your journal The comment also helps you want to take a closer look and you usually feature lovely work that i like anyway. I like it when you feature thumbs from lots of differnt artists that all fit your taste. Thats most likely also because we have similar taste in art.
