Newgrounds really has that draw for people. It's evolved a lot and it's a great community to be a part of. Always happy to see people rediscovering it. Glad to have you here, your art is amazing!
Thanks so much! It definitely does seem like a great community, and rediscovering it has been quite nice.
I don't know who you are but you're pretty awesome
i love your dark souls art, welcome to the site!
Good to hear, I'm surprised I hadn't seen your stuff before on Twitter or something, but I'm loving everything you put out!
You can find my Twitter at https://twitter.com/adamfergusonart if you're interested! Thank you!
welcome to le newgrounds!
Been loving all your art this week! And yes, the blogs are a decent place to share WIPs.
The Art Portal also has an "Include in Art Portal" checkbox that you can uncheck for WIPs, at which point your art will only show up in your personal gallery and the feeds of people who follow you. It's a kinda weird feature and you might not want the WIPs in your personal gallery, so blog could still be ideal.
Woah, thanks a ton Tom, means a lot coming from you! I will definitely try and keep that it mind, it would certainly be nice to submit some WIPs and sketches, especially if people are interested in that sort of thing.
Welcome to the community, I'm glad you enjoy it here!
Oh hey Dio! Nice to see you here!
Welcome to the community, dude. I've been on here since about 2001 or so. Very early when the website was basically fresh out of the oven, but it took several years before I decided to make an account.
Glad I did and have been on here since.
NG is special. There's a certain 'No, it's good. Don't fuck with it.' mentality and creed that Tom Fulp upholds. No corps getting their grubby shitfingers on this pile. As a result it made the ecosystem a little smaller in the beginning... But I think the world is starting to recognize what NG actually is and the type of organically grown community it leans towards fostering over the forced and blaise bloat that others offer. It's not about the upvotes. It's not even about the scores. It's something else altogether.
There's a video about Newgrounds by Kaptain kristian that I honestly invite anyone to watch that oh-so succinctly explains its significant impact for both creators and support roles in the industry.
I hope you enjoy the shits and giggles and weird oddities you stumble across.
Wow, yeah that's a long time that you've been here, I'm sure you've seen tons of changes and people come and go. I was a big-time forum member starting in 2006 and I really miss these types of communities where people's interactions are actually heard and seen, everything moves way too quick on social media.
Either way, thanks for the welcome and I appreciate the advice and comments a ton!
For WIP images for insight and feedback and for just generally rambling / discussing things sounds like a good use for 'em indeed. :) Some artists have their own threads in the art forum they use as a continual WIP showcase of sorts, but not sure if they get a lot of views or no there.
Glad you found your way back here! Definitely still feels like a bit of a hidden gem in the social media realm. It IS social media after all, just very differently tone. Maybe just not too big yet. Still a human element over all, and so many awesome people gathered in the one place.
