I don't know

So, I am thinking about having my own art site. It's impossible for me to get noticed on IB unless I draw cub porn or cute fluffy animals.

Not that I would be leaving IB, or any of my other furry sites. I just want a place where I can get noticed. Call me an attention whore I guess. I just bust my ass on every picture I do, and see half assed art get on the popular line. It really irks me because I try so hard.

Then again, maybe that's a stupid idea to have my own site. I mean it's not as if I would be offering commissions, or selling something. I just don't know what to do any more. Originally I thought that if I tried hard, and put out good art that I'd get noticed right along with the person next to me who draws the cub porn.

I'm sorry the cute and fluffy just isn't me. I can be tender, and loving, but most of my work is gritty, and based off a dark world.

Maybe the fact that your work isn't being noticed is due to marketing.

If you market the hell out of a crap product, it'll sell quite well.
If you don't market a great product, it'll sell, but not well.

Personally, I'm a horrible salesman - as evidenced by my failed attempt at a reselling business.  Learn from my mistake - don't rely on passive marketing.  Actively advertise your product - but be TRUTHFUL about your product, even if you have to be vague with it.

Here's what I would do in your position.  Take a look at who is favoriting and commenting on your work.  See who else's work they favorite and comment on.  Approach those artists with some kind of offer, like a collab or trade.
Though, honestly, here's one way I've found artists to watch here and elsewhere - fan art.  I'm willing to bet that artists who draw GOOD fan art of another artist's popular OC find they get a spike in new subscribers.
