Hi. I feel silly asking this. How do you get a scout once you post four art pieces?

Love the warm welcome from Tom. I haven't used this site since the early 2000's (old account was long since lost), so it's a nice bit of nostalgia coming back after Tumblr decided to ruin itself. I can't wait to explore all the new features! Might even become a supporter. Hope more of the artists I followed on Tumblr decide to come over here. Seems like they're either migrating to here or Twitter.

I know that completed works are more valuable to show off, but I think having some kind of tab or filter or something for sketches in the art portal could go a long way for activity here. Artists can post stuff more often, and people still enjoy random sketches since they show off creative process, ideas, humor, all that good shit. Also it tells people that the artist they’re following aren’t dead.

Yeah, I wish I could be able to submit my sketches too. Sketches, and sequences. :y Fingers crossed for a bright future to NG!!

Fantastic!
As Tumblr draws its final breath, this is a perfect opportunity for Newgrounds to reclaim its spot as the #1 art sharing website!

I didn't realize a lot of people were doing this lmao. I just remembered i used to use newgrounds like over 6 years ago and i remember that ng is pretty cool with whatever you produce.

The last time I was on Newgrounds as a member was almost 10 years ago. I deleted my old account in 2009-2010, but its good to be back since Newgrounds helped me jump my career. I'd love to catch up with this website.

Guys, I have a lot of animations made on the basis of other people's art, do I have the right to post them on my page?

So I read through TOS and the link here for art and what could be flagged as Inappropriate, but do you have anything you explicitly disallow on the site? In relation to NSFW content or SFW. Certain fetishes, certain ships (I know that sounds dumb, but we've been through hell after tumblr so bear w me), certain topics, etc?

Apologies if I've just missed something! I have never used NG before, save for flash games when I was in elementary school XDD guess everything comes full circle, huh?

Thanks for reading, and I hope the artists like me coming here do well! I can't wait to see their content!

Welp, all of this happened mid getting myself together to get ready to start posting again, and then I remembered "where was I a long time ago" here, enjoying media. I felt like I left so long ago for no reason, and I don't remember why.

Hello again, Newgrounds. I've missed this place.

I'm curious if there's any plans to add a comic friendly format to the site. Of course maybe there is one that i'm not aware of.

I didn't come from the Tumblr purge, but I'm here because of it. I have been looking to dump Naughty Machinima for a good while, but I always had problems with other spots like Tumblr (Who deleted my account in 24 hours) and Xhamster. So, I just stuck with Naughty Machinima, even though I hate it. I saw people saying "Go to Newgrounds" all over the place after the Tumblr purge. I'm glad I did. This place is so awesome. I wish I had've come here years ago. I just thought it was a place for flash games and only a little of it was NSFW. I had no idea, man.

Certainly wish ya guys luck, I've even turned off my adblockers just to help \o/

I am very much on board for bringing back this old titan of the bygone internet age, if for nothing else but for the sack of shenanigans \o/

Also, if any of the site admins see this, I second this

Being able to group pictures together is quite handy, specially for comic styled stuff.

That would be an awesome improvement. NewGrounds is always updating and getting better.


Sharing some feedback from a friend from elsewhere (who is actually here but is still settling down, lol)
"NG" more like NG+, get it? Feels great to start over around new horizons.

This is the perfect time to start a new account at NewGrounds.

NewGrounds is large enough for every artists from Tumblr, and still have plenty of room left over.

These people do not integrate well.

It will be an SJW shit fest before the week is over and I honestly believe this will change newgrounds for the absolute worst.

This is my concern as well, but in all honesty, I think that the vast majority of Tumblr people who are migrating here will likely show up for a few days and then leave for either another website or crawl back to Tumblr because that's ultimately the site that they're hooked on. If someone wants to cash in on this shit, now's the time to make a NSFW Tumblr clone. @Tahlian you are very mistaken if you think that Tumblr's artist base isn't largely made up of SJW's as well - Trust me, it is. It's a big part of why I do not use Tumblr actively myself.

Thanks for the warm welcome. You've always been a fucking embodiment of the spirit of art, Tom.

It's been a decade or more since I left this site and now I return emboldened and eager to participate.

It might be best for Newgrounds to adopt what Paheal websites currently do, which is have standardised tags that count how many times they're used. E.g. you start typing "Princess" and before you've even finished the word, the system auto-suggests "Princess_Peach (4297)" or other various princesses.

I agree, this would be a significant addition! Whew... NG sure got a lot of work ahead... still, it's gonna be a huge pro if they can pull their weight; I feel strangely optimistic! :D

Hey everyone! Tumblr refugee here! Man, I am just blown away with how welcoming everyone's been to us displaced artists. I actually had no idea Newgrounds hosted art! I always thought it was a place for flash videos and games, but this is great!

It's really sad what Tumblr did to it's members, especially since that's where I got most of my commission work, but I'm super happy to be able to share both my SFW and NSFW with you guys here!

It makes me so happy seeing how accepting this website is, and how Tom Fulp still runs this place and didn't sell it out to some corporation that would take the site and slowly suck away any soul it had until it's a sanitized turd. Fulp needs to be immortal. Him and a few other Internet 1.0 figures are our last hopes.

If not I think it ought to be added. People who do fics in addition to art will be moving here too

Fanfiction is considered art/content creation. SO I believe so.

I'm from Asia, doing some partial translation to East Asian languages as I noticed that there are more artists from said location are attempting to move here, yet they have trouble understanding English so I'm currently doing partial Japanese translation alone to break language barrier.

We still need more CJK translators so that they can go along with Newgrounds Community itself.

This site has been pretty interesting and unique with its community way of interaction compared to other social sites for me when I joined late this year. Cheers to you and your team, Tom! I hope to find more of my favorite artists as the community expands from this wave!

I second this! I always liked how NG never stopped looking 90s/00s-ish and would really like it to stay that way.

Newgrounds was a large part of my teenage years and I'm so happy to see it reach the level of attention it deserves again.
