Let's take your question first...

"How do I get more picture views and comments?!?  Help and input appreciated."

Work with beautiful models that do nudes and have big portfolios/followings on MM. The traveling models are perhaps the easiest way to build your 'brand' recognition. Shoot them AND give them finished images that they'll want to post on their portfolios. They get a LOT more page visitors than you ever will. But folks seeing your images on their pages will go look at your page to see who else you have naked images of. You'll have to spend some money to pay traveling models... consider it an investment.

Or you can try playing in the forums a LOT and posting a LOT of nudity... or playing in the various MM image 'contests', especially the daily women's (+18) image contest.

To get comments, just do good work with beautiful models. Again, the models will far outpace you as far as image views... if you put a reasonable logo on the image... it helps build recognition and direct the viewers to look at YOUR pages.

Now as to your current portfolio. Not bad... but the dramatic lighting is to show off to other photographers... models want their faces to be visible.

Just my opinion.

Networking goes both ways.  Models want more picture views and comments also.  Everyone comes out ahead if you credit your models.

I like your profile image the most, it is also the only one that has a comment. 

Keep shooting and play in the forums or go the naked route.

Hi there!

I have found there are three things that work best to getting more traffic to your model mayhem page.

1. Visit the main page and exchange comments and list with fellow mmers. You will receive comments and traffic from doing this... sometimes immediately.

2. Participate in as many forums as possible. Make sure you have your best photo as your avatar.. this will draw people in as well.

3. Post casting calls and availability notices and work through MM as often as possible.

Hope this helps!
