Pretty surprised y'all major artists aren't aware of the multiple art submissions feature! :D It does feel like a bit of a workaround compared to other sites, with how just one file's still uploaded individually, and the rest added via the description box, but it does work. To the end-user there's no distinction between the pictures on the submission page... unless you add some.

There's a list of all mods in the Wiki too: https://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/help-information/site-moderation

Once again a great listen-in, interesting glimpses into the behind the scenes of mostly pixel stuff and some of my favorite people behind 'em. Am hungry for more regarding what programs people use, which they'd recommend, tips and tricks and techniques - no better way to learn than listening. Well, at least not a more easily consumable way. And definitely hope you get some NSFW guys on the show too. TheShadling would be awesome. Tarakanovich, Speedo, Catoblepas (for some reason I imagine he wouldn't mind voicing his voice), devilhs (as maybe the most favorited Tumblr refugee with the recent wave)? Aaa there's so many. Personally I feel like as long as this type of content's not pushed in people's faces then it's great that there's a place for it here. All for the freedom, and the potential of growth... and I do like some of that stuff too.

Looking forward to hearing more of these with the new schedule! Till the next one.


A podcast with three artists I am following on Newgrounds? Pretty damn sweet!

I agree with what @GoodL suggested, if nsfw artists are willing to do interviews as long as they have their voices modified, there might be some who would be willing to do interviews.

On a topic from earlier in the podcast, Newgrounds and Deviantart have pretty different rulesets for NSFW from what I remember, while you can show bodily fluids (semen and whatnot) on Newgrounds, Deviantart does not allow that or allow showing characters engaging in the act of sex oddly.

Great roundtable interview with everyone and sad to hear that even in the pixel art community, some people just like to be overly nitpicky assholes about what art program was used for making pixel art / gifs. :(

Looking forward to the next podcast and seeing who or what group of users get interviewed. :D

webcomics. good idea. Very informative podcast.

Wow guys, this conversation was super good. I really liked artists talking about how they view pixel art and how they do it.
And about the adult content talk, I too faced a similar situation. I told my relative that I am gonna make a game on newgrounds to learn game dev, she saw it and told me to hide the part of being associated with NG when searching for a job 😅.
The number of artists was good, it felt like everybody was in the conversation and nobody was just leftout for a long time, kudos 🙂

Really dig this format! Awesome discussion going on here. I was super into the discussion on pixel art, especially on the topic of what really counts as pixel art, and I strongly agree with the consensus you all had in that pixel art can be a lot of different things and no one form of pixel art is inherently more valid than any other.

Will, about your problem with finding NSFW artists to interview, have you considered asking them if they would be willing to use a voice changer? Or perhaps you could offer to change their voices in post. Just something to think about.

Great episode!

Will responds:

There's an idea... Like witness protection
