As Scott McCloud always says, your job as an artist isn’t to figure out how to fit into genres, but instead to invent new genres – but that never stopped anyone from doing prudent and meaningful market research to make sure they understand their audience.
So, by way of some super cheep market research, and just in terms of being crowd pleasing, here’s the most popular images on the whole site
Speaking just in terms of raw volume and the scores for the art, here’s some very popular tags ranked by score:
– 185757 images, highest score = 3973
– 6630 images, highest score = 3973
– 86546 images, highest score = 3888
– 113129 images, highest score = 3646
– 41848 images, highest score = 3183
So, while there many NSFW images on the site that have high scores, the "softer" approach seems to always win in terms of popularity of individual images.
And here’s every tag on the site, ranked by the number of images with those tags
I don’t know if those score based searches or tag numbers give you any inspiration, but in a lot of ways; that’s what your audience here likes.
