I don't think in all my years here I could've ever predicted NG being turned into technically an adult website in all my time here. Well, haven't seen the portal filled with under judgement submissions in years, so I guess this is a great thing. Problem is that I can't see more than 75 under judgement submissions. Is this just me being dumb, or is this not possible to do on the portal page? I know I can do it in the Games/Movies categories, but is there a way to mix both UJ games and movies together for pure lazy stat whoring purposes?

So can i just ask for another artist to scout me here?

Edit: Didn't realize asking for scouting was taboo

I'm one of the few religious leaders in the world who don't lie when they say their god has talked to them. Well, typed at them, at least.

Now our cult will grow twice as strong!!!!

I mean religion

Not cult

Hello folks! I am deepandsilent3dx, hobby DAZ Studio artist. I play around with this great posing and rendering software from time to time. I love creating fantasy and erotic scenes, mostly futanari and young shortstacks, and I want to show you these works as well.

I migrated here from Tumblr because, as you've already heard, Tumblr soon will not accept artworks with sexual content.

As my first impression is, it is a fine community here, and I hope that my art finds much encouragement here.

By the way, sorry for my bad english, it is not my native language, and unfortunately I need to use Google Translator for my posts. So takes it with humor, if some reads strangely. :)

welp, i guess use my account here again :P

Thank you for the helpful guidelines ! I'm new here ( only been here to fap ) and appreciate the tips ( was looking on how to access the adult art section ) .

Hope to provide some good art to the newgrounds community :D !

You may have noticed this post is in an older, non-mobile friendly layout. We've been overhauling one area at a time and the next to launch will be our updated forums. We'll also be updating the rich text editor in blogs so those will get a lot better. Check out the Community News and say hi to all the new people who are blogging!

We've documented a ton of feedback from new and returning artists and have a big list of improvements we want to prioritize in 2019. We're hoping everyone who is giving NG a chance will always feel great about their decision.

We want to hear your feedback, too! You can PM me or reply right in this thread. Let us know what parts of NG confuse you and what features you would like to see. I don't mind hearing repeats because it helps us know what there is the most demand for.

I'm really glad this site is finally back to being relevant, I just hope you guys don't sacrifice any features for the sake of "minimalism" or some other Web 3.0 bullshit. What I love about this site is how packed it is of features, and the nice functional layout from the Web 2.0 days.

Update the mobile site all you want, but I hope the desktop site just continues to build upon the existing foundation, rather than starting from scratch or some other such bullshit.


Time to dust off this really old account, lol. Not to be too rude to Newgrounds, but I'm glad to see this site being relevant again as this is an extremely smart move from Tom.

Also, being able to see the full resolution images rather than tumblr's compressed "1280" bullshit is fucking awesome. Seriously, removing raw images just this year was the big nail in that coffin....which was already full of nails.

So yeah, Newgrounds is BACK baby!!

Welcome to you all!
It's great to see such a great influx of artists!
I hope you'll enjoy your time here on NG!

Response to Welcome, 2nd Wave of New Artists! 2018-12-04 15:43:32


Been a visitor to NG or a bit now, usually to play demos or flash/lewd games linked by others. I must confess i never really dipped into the well of the array of things offered here or the community and it seems I was seriously missing out.

Glad to see the devs and overall community very welcoming of creators and content and while I definitely enjoy my NSFW it's good to see things in general given a positive and upbeat treatment compared to the almost bipolar treatment that the internet and a lot of societies in general seem to consider the norm.

I'm more of a writer although I am working with a team for some unity based games so maybe I'll get to showcase them here too, but either way glad to be here and have an account.

Shout out to @Eldrik who is a longtime bud of mine and a great artist both SFW and NSFW give his page a look and thanks again.

Yes an "OPEN WEB," is what the world needs and we love you TOM for staying the course.

Anyway, I think there will be a lot of demand for such thing.
This is one of the top requests so we'll definitely be looking to address it.

That's great! really glad you're considering this, trust me, every time I hear an artist talking about new sites they talk about this feature... And that's why they stayed in tumblr for so long, there's also the ASK(ask anons) but that's not obligatory, is just that many artist love to interact with their followers that way and protect privacy.

But if we get the post with multiple pictures (could be limited to 10) and enough space to describe the content properly (similar to a forum response) then I know everything will be fine.

I would say that's accurate. Before I went to sleep last night, it was at around 25%, I would say it is increasing quickly due to how many people are migrating / rejoining the website.

Yeah I've been checking in a few times during the day and it just keeps going. :) Awesome to see.

You're not being dumb there, it's just not possible. :/ Back in the day we could actually browse all submissions in list format like this, but since the Movies and Games sections appeared the thumbnail view took over for such things. So the Portal's limited to just that newest bit of the stream. Still would be nice if it was possible to browse everything in this so easily overviewable format...

People seem to be scouring the unscouted section like crazy though. So much competition there in finding new talent. But you're right, if you miss that window with the first few pages and do get pushed back further you'll probably get pushed back pretty far...

I have to admit, I never thought I'd ever come back here. I was a high school kid making flash animations, but then I veered more towards writing than anything else... I have so many memories it's ridiculous.

Well, glad this place is now back on the upswing. :) I missed the orange and black I must admit.

Hey I'm a new user, I just have a quick question, black and white art is okay right? I don't want it to be confused for line art or sketches, I just have trouble with color so I really don't use it.

Thanks! I just got concerned that other artists would become confused or assume it was sketches.
I've heard a lot about you and I'm really glad I'm joining the site!

I've never felt so welcomed to a site before! I didn't use Tumblr much but where I do post hasn't been changing for the better. And I'll be honest, comparing it to here makes me see that it may be time to move on. haha
Thank you to the community for accepting us! ♥

Gotta say, as a non-artist in this situation, seeing such a classic, yet still chill website like Newgrounds get a second wind is really goddamn great to see.

Hello! Bara/gay art creator here! I'm happy to be joining this community and to have a place where I can post NSFW artwork.

The community here seems pretty chill as well, which I like, plus it's nice to have another community to go after Tumblr decided to implode.

Sorry in advance for any grammar mistakes I make, English isn't my first language and sometimes I mentally switch to another syntax.
