I don't care about being popular. I just want to do good art.
Well what makes an art product commercially successful? ... I think promotion helps the most. I've seen both good and bad, original and cliche, skilled and amateur art be made popular using promotion. Seems having something simple and instantly appealing is important to. Like a "hook" from a pop song? Some kind of gimmick will help I think. Novelty sometimes does well, sometimes not. Appealing to a large demographic is important too, so you should take out stuff that may alienate your audience. You could try showing it to your friends to see if you get a good reaction. Everyone has different opinions though, so don't change anything unless alot of people complain about it. Maybe post it places that get a lot of attention but standards are usually pretty low? DA, Youtube (maybe a documentary on your work), or here... It will make you look better to be next to uninteresting work, I think.

be careful what you post on myspace. i believe once u post an image on their, some of the rights are taken away from you and it becomes theirs. you may look into this further.
