I only just realized that my comic/myself have
only been doing webcomics seriously
for 2 or 3 years(?) now... and I quickly learned
my art's not in anyways attractive to others, nor
is my style given a chance. Even doing lessons
doesn't seem to help.. at least... if this/webcomics DOES
take years to get noticed/any following I don't
have much of chance to get attention at least
on here--ComicFury, where there's many who've done
this professionally for much longer..

So... is there a site for people who just started doing
webcomics? A place where one with 3 -years experience in this
can get readers/someone who'd understand where one's artstyle
is coming from and the maker themselves can get more feedback,
because the site in question is full of people who are in fact
looking for something different and/or new?

My advice is to post your comic on more than one webcomic hosting site. I don't know any sites which are particularly for people, who are starting off. I mean everyone has started. Professional comic authors have taken years to get to the point they're at, either it be with studying how to do that or by posting for many years. Or both. There's also the factor of the time period you're in. Back in the day, webcomics were rare, so they gained traction fast.
So my solution, as I've mentioned, is to post to more than one hosting site. If your art doesn't seem appealing to the general public, there are two ways to go about it - either do what you have to in order to improve it, or if you don't want to change it, then make up for it with story and other things that can take the viewer's attention. And most importantly is to advertise the Hell out of your comic - we're talking twitter, instagram, tumblr, facebook, not myspace, however, since I don't know if it still exists, even TikTok if there's any way to advertise there. That way you're breaching out from just the audience the webcomic hosting sites and you can grab the interest of people who may like your stuff, but are outside of the hosting sites.

Thanks, I'll try it...

In my case though; tracing other's art will be the only way to
get people to give attention long enough to read the story...

Don't be too hard on yourself. Popularity is a slow process. It also takes time to understand how to get it.
Just take baby steps and keep being motivated.

Which device do you use? My android can't log onto there nor run the app...
I actually have a friend inviting me to come there, but my android shuts
down everything whenever I try to use it...

PC. My phone apps need to be regularly sacrificed for space.
