Wondering about how to get your art noticed on the site & advice?

Assuming they post it on this site to begin with, yes. People may use your free art elsewhere and are not liable if they do. However, I see it all too often ppl don't read the description and still favorite or think the poster made the art. Least you get paid when it happens and it is a commission.

That I am aware of, but at least there are measures that can be taken on this site should it be needed.
And I always make sure my name is on the piece in a way that can't be removed, so that should work as well. c:

Say what now?
Be active in fA in more than just uploading. Comment on pictures you like/fav and post a shout on an artist's page if you like their gallery. It works two ways- for one, be sincere with your comment, don't just comment to get noticed. It means a lot to the artist to have a comment, be it short or long. Plus people browsing the comments may notice your comment/avatar and be intrigued to look at your user page.
 
Welp, I think getting more active is the way to go, upload more art, talk with as many people you can...and make friendship and stuff.... <.< ask others abotu their art, etc... just be gentle with the rest of the people..and stuff probably you will have more luck =3

I definitely do that as much as I can. The trouble is that often times when I feel like I don't have anything to say, I don't say anything.
Because it can be seen as "insincere attention-whoring". I leave thoughtful feedback where I can, but don't just comment to comment, if that makes sense? D:

From what I have observed, getting noticed on this site has little to do with quality and everything to do with quantity. The more stuff you are producing, the more people will notice. Those that pump out 4 or 5 sketches daily seem to have a tonne of followers, while those that spend hours on one picture have maybe a handful. There are exceptions of course, but this is just what I have observed.

I think I fall under Fruxie's post. I really think that the more you draw, the more notice you get from others. Me myself, I used to pump out drawing like hot cakes when I was in high school. They weren't great because my style was still in the works, plus I was drawing anime like characters (Embarrassing... xD). But then I got into a rut with my art and I stopped posting stuff. but in fall of 2011, I started drawing again more and practicing and it got better. However, I ditched the anime style and went for a more semi-cartoon style instead and I personally think my anthros have gotten a little better compared to my older stuff. Anyway, I kind of deemed off topic.. xD The point is, just keep drawing and practicing. It'll definitely help you.

And plus, I've seen a good lot of artists who don't draw porn but do just fine without it. But a lot of said artists were very skilled.. Still though, it shows that you don't have to draw porn to be noticed or successful on the site.

A few years ago I ran an Iron Artist special that was 50 cents a sketch, and gave the option to include addons (fullbody, lineart, shading, etc.) for extra. It got me a lot of watchers, and a lot of the people who ordered sketches actually became repeat customers for some of my more expensive, complex offerings. Of course with something like that you have to make sure you have the time to fulfil the demand, for me at the time I was during my summer break and had nothing to do.
