All these drawings I just linked are all with a quick glance through the New Art. Just take a look at some of it and tell me that's not worthy of a Best Art title. Does that mean Shadman's stuff is to be shunned? Hell no, there's a place for everything, but this juvenile bullshit's been going on for ages. Put aside the lube and show some other hard-working artists some goddamn respect. You really want this site to drab in the porn culture forever?
I feel the same way about this. There's no reason the front page of Newgrounds has to look like a porn site, unless it's a special occasion. Maybe we should have a Titties Day.
The art site Renderosity has been progressively suffering from the same problem for several years. There are some gifted artists there who find their work nevertheless overshadowed by what is essentially softcore hentai and CG lingerie. A quick glance at their front page on any day of the week should show us what we don't want the Newgrounds Art Portal to become.
