Popularity isn't about quality, eg. Sakimichan, Shadman. It's about marketing, about being at the right place at the right time, and about supply and demand.
The main thing to know is that as other anons pointed out, it doesn't need to be technically good, it only needs to LOOK good.
Diive's cheap gifs work because it's clean-looking, cute and colorful.
Sakimchi's stuff works because despte the wonky proportions smudge overdose rendering it'll still look professional and stylized to the untrained eye.
Outside of the porn side of their work, a common thing a lot of these artists share is that they can put their shit out there very fast, to jump and cash in on trends and fotm popular characters. They all use flashy, sometimes oversaturated colors. There are patterns, things to learn about their stuff, take notes of what you see anon, it really will help you if you want an online following.
