As you all may or may not know, I joined here very recently due to seeing the pixel day celebration talks on Twitter. It had been years since I visited Newgrounds, but I'm really loving the community thus far. Everyone is super positive and the feedback I've gotten on my artwork so far has been amazing. There aren't many places left on the internet like this - galleries and communities that aren't social media focused. It's a real breath of fresh air in many regards.
I used to visit here back in 2008-2009 watching Mario flash videos (actually one of the things that inspired my pixel art interest) but fell off not too long after that. Coming back to post artwork here has been super enjoyable thus far, and I hope to continue getting to know more of you in the community here.
I'm a bit new to these news posts but I'm assuming I could use them to post some WIP images I'm working on for insight and feedback? And for just generally rambling / discussing things?
Either way, like the title says. Newgrounds is pretty awesome, but I'm sure that isn't news to any of you!
P.S. I also have a Discord art server where we chat about artwork, work on improving, and just generally hangout if anyone would want to join that - would help with getting to know some of you even better.
