Default Karbonites! I need your help!

I'm gonna to try an experiment. I have made a DeviantArt account.

http://lemeat.deviantart.com/

I'm going to fill this thing with the most random, abstract "art" I can. Considering they take between 10-20 minutes a peice, I'm gonna have alot. My plan is to get popular, and hopefully get some sort of prints made; thus getting me money. I'm not familiar with how the print-making sytem works, so if somebody could enlighten me.

I need you guys with DeviantArt accounts to tell your friends about me, then tell your friends to tell their friends, and so on. I wanna see how easy it will be to get my abstract "art" shit recognized.

Yeah, It's gonna be hard. From what I hear it's hard to get recognized over there let alone sell your stuff. Anywho here is the printing faq:

You aren't going to get popular, fast. Trust me.
Like bakanekonei, I had an account there for three years, I started getting popular, I left that account for personal reasons.
But I'll put you up anyway.

EDIT: But on another note of getting popular, post constructive comments on other people's art, and post in the forums.

You're doing it wrong!! Don't post 20 minute abstract peices! Post 20minute waii anime peices of Roxas perving gayly on Axel and Naruto cuddling Sasuke with candy and promises of deep poetry!
That's how the experts do it.

Actually, deviantART users are more likely to succeed with random shit if they do incredibly consistent, repetitive, boring random shit. Then watchers know what to expect when they friend you, and thus have reason to friend you if they like what they see.

People call it "style". Apparently it's like this totally hot awesome thing. And Mana's words are wise. Maybe you'll even manage to sell a few KH/Naruto yaoi fanart prints before the moderators catch you infringing on copyright law. :P

I predict you'll rally a small army of similarly abstract artists to do your bidding if you play your cards right (as in, if you friend 30 people a day and favorite over a hundred submissions an hour).

This is spam, plain and simple. Check FAQ rule #5.
