Yeah, like you`d be busy killing poeple while fighting a ninja... you`d be lucky to be alive while fighting a ninja!

Yeah, you tell yourself that, old man. I've kicked the hell out of plenty of ninjas - they're a dime-a-dozen back-stabbing closet lingerie wearers who can't resist but boast the hell out of being better then pirates.

Being a quick attack shock trooper is where the shits at.

You think you're been fighting ninjas, but in reality, it's all been a lie.
See, people forget what the true meaning of ninja is, and they think that anyone who wears black and has a sword is a ninja. Everyone has forgotten where the true power of a ninja comes from, and thus it's name has been tarnished.
Believe me, if you fought an actual ninja, he would defeat you in mere moments.

If you fought a real estate ninja, he'd first convince you to sign for the purchase so he'd have your money, and then kill you with the pen you used to sign with.

I'm telling you that I've fought the real ninjas, the source of all ninja power, alongside your dime-a-dozens and while they aren't exactly easy fights I wasn't defeated in mere seconds - ninjas are not nearly as powerful as their inflated egos make them think they are, and once you're able to work your way through the layers of trickery and deceit they make for fairly easy targets - well, with a good marksman anyway.
Either way, I've yet to be sold a house by a real-estate ninja anyway. They keep trying to sell me these beachfronts condos with miniature bowling alleys - admittingly, at least 7 kinds of awesome, but not what I'm looking for in a residence.

Lies, because if they were actual ninja's, you'd be dead.
Unless it was me, because I couldn't kill a fellow art forum fellow.

I prefer to sell apartment complexes, and miniature versions of famous landmarks (they're all the rage now).

Yup, it's the Mexican bicentennial. Viva Mexico!
I hope that all of NG's Mexican users are having a nice time.

Gamers, this is specifically aimed towards you.
this is a long ass story about some being driven to crippling madness, because of a majora's mask rom.
The theme is kinda dumb, but it is really entertaining and well thought out.
Don't be turned away by the tiny scrollbar, it's only actually about 2/5 of the page, just wait till you have about an hour to kill, and read this.

should you feel so inclined to follow the youtube links, do not download anything from the links.

I read that; saw it on a blog post on 1up. I thought it was very well done, if a little silly. I love good horror writing, and that it could be done like that about a video game was pretty impressive.

On the battlefield, I've combated and defeated quite a few ninjas in the heat of war. I've no doubt that, if in an otherwise an enclosed space or a different playing field then yeah, the probable outcome would be the swift removal of my head from my shoulders. But in the blood-soaked fields of internet war? I can take them.

I prefer to sell apartment complexes, and miniature versions of famous landmarks (they're all the rage now).

Really? Wow, I might just look into those. although the places where you would be allowed to live in a miniature landmark must be fairly limited - they wouldn't really be approved by council for the most bit, would they?

That was like a bad acid trip.
Now here is something also about video games to lighten the mood.
It's a japanese fellow, possibly drunk, narrating while he plays Mario Bros (for gameboy). It's fucking hilarious.

Yeah, i've seen that before... Pretty well done, until you actually think about a guy freaking out over a video game so much.

That's actually a pretty good song. It's the sort of song you'd go on a murderous rampage on, all livery and "elevator music"-esque. I actually like the song, although the echo in the mike sort of ruins the effect, for the most part.

I figured that pasting this here is much better then making a thread about it (fits in pretty well here anyway) but to ask a question of the art forum, I've been facing a bit of a dilemma.

I use both NG and deviantArt, and am fairly active on both, but as of now I'm actually more active on the deviantArt community then the NG art community. The main reason for this is that dA actually contains more stats based around the holy principle of arting then NG, and I am an uncontrollable stat whore.

So as a side effect, all my review efforts (which, admittingly, usually just contain two or so paragraphs of reflection and observation), commenting and downright posting are all heading over in dA's direction. And why? Because of those damned pageviews - and it's horrible, because 3 pieces submitted here get more hits then my entire dA portfolio. Which isn't much, I have to say.

So yeah, I'm seemingly defecting to dA and it isn't a nice feeling, so I have to say - in the name of art, how do you piss off from another site to stick to one you've stayed on before, in the name of less stats but more fun? I mean, but sites have their merits but for the most part it's simply the more visible stats that keep me there - which is why I've pretty much placed a 50-yard restraining order on myself and most serious RPGs.

I'm sure most of us have faced commitment issues at one time or another, and this is pretty petty as far as commitment goes, but I don't want want to defect to devaintArt because of a fancy pageview graph thingy >.>

How about stick with NG because you'll actually get feedback on your work and it's not a bunch of circle-jerkers.

Well, then it's decided - I'll stick to reviewing art on the Newgrounds, and to hell with the pageviews on dA - my Art Thread has almost hits anyway (see: 1500 or so to 2000, one start 6 months ago, the other 3 years).

...
I'll still dump my work there, though.

@Lintire

I say go where you feel that you'll get the support you need to improve the most. I hate to join on the bandwagon dissing dA but the truth, imo, is that; yeah, feedback pretty much sucks there. NG isn't the best place for crit in the world, but it's loads better than dA. If the page view counter helps you improve more than some honest, sometimes brutal, feedback does, then by all means; jump ship to dA, but if you're like most artists; constructive criticism, while sometimes difficult to take, is better than page views and "AWESOME! POST SOME MOAR PLZ!!"

DA is just impossible to get noticed, by the time youve posted something its been swept off the newest page by tides of crap, your lucky if you get 10 views per pic, i think most of them just stick every word in the dictionary into the keywords for that pic, then dump em into like 20 groups, but yeah here, easier to get seen, noticed and improve, plus the mods are much better, not busy running after millions of other random users, or banning shadman

The pageviews don't help me squat in a picture - it's just that, like the insufferable stat whore I am, to me they represent a stat, and they tend to jump whenever you post a review, so you put two and two together and it's not too long before you realize that you've put an entirely pitiful amount of reviews into one site and 5-10 a day on the other. That damned graph is very tempting to expand on through review posting. And you know that you're reviews are rare when the artists actually thank you for your words and continually note how little people actually post anything other then three or four words.

I prefer honest, brutal feedback anyday, just my inner stawhoreness acting up. NG will always be the better site, but really does need to display the art stats a bit more freely.
*shrugs*
I've made my choice, I'll be sticking all my reviews here, with the more active and community-involved mods, the harsher selection process for the art portal in the first place, and the bunch of uncensored dickgirls.

Sample of my work:

Art Forum Lounge

If you want to showcase your art, make a personal art thread. You've already been told this.

Why dont you just look at the views on your art every day/2day/week and make yourself your own graph? Quadruple the work, 1,35 times the fun!

I tried DeviantART. Once I saw that nobody gives any kind of real comments (everybody just fucking loves everybody else's work) and that your work stays on the first page for about 15 seconds, I said "fuck this."

Linty, it may be biased since we're Newgrounders saying this, but I think you're better off here. Stats are just numbers, after all. You'll end up with nothing really solid out of DA. Hell, I don't even think people who get huge on DA end up with anything solid other than a smug feeling because of the sheer number of compliments they receive with no real criticism.

God, I'm just saying what everybody else has said. I still want to join in on keeping Lintire here, though!
