I draw people with tank heads. Tumblr didn't want me
if you are going to give my art a bad rating, consider the following first: if you don't like it, just ignore it and go look at anime titties or something instead

So I don't wanna make this a big deal, but I might actually leave this website. The only reason why I came here was the big tumblr scare back in Dec 2018, and since my blog made it out of that okay, I don't really see any reason to stay here. It's just extra work of uploading my pics to another website with essentially barely any interaction in return. I don't really know how to get involved with the community and whatnot.


I probably won't delete my account, to keep it as a backup of sorts should everything else die for some reason.

I honestly didn't expect to be featured on the frontpage. I have no idea how big of a deal this is on Newgrounds, but I'm feelin valid today


Hello new followers, thanks for coming here and I hope you'll enjoy your stay!

Hey there dear followers, I swear I'm not dead (yet).

Life has been very busy for me and I barely had time to draw. Also NG doesn't seem to send me emails at all about things happening on here, so I kinda forgot about it for a while.

BUT like I said, I'm positively alive and I hope to post more regularly again soon.

Long wall of ramblings incoming.


So I've been here for a couple days now with basically no prior opinion or knowledge of the website. I vaguely remember it for its flash games back in the year dot.

I didn't really get many warnings or recommendations beforehand. Someone just mentioned "hey there's Newgrounds" when I told them about my tumblr dilemma. I basically came here with no expectations or fears.

In the few days of my stay so far, I looked a bit into the forums and into the art portal. I would say Newgrounds is very different from tumblr, and that didn't surprise me. The mentality seems to be fundamentally different. I know tumblr at its worst, so I don't expect only sunshine and butterflies anywhere else, but the NG community seems to be more ... cynical?

I can understand some NG users when they aren't thrilled about the sudden mass exodus of tumblr nsfw artists. It's probably like getting your door kicked in by a hurricane of dicks and boobs at 5am. But I'm glad that most NG users seem to be very accepting of us, nevertheless. I know that I would be wary in their place. I don't know if the portals always looked like that, but they're definitely getting flooded with nsfw content of all levels of quality now. There's definitely not only wholesome stuff, and I don't doubt that some of the worst people of tumblr have ended up here.

It feels to me like I'm not entirely welcome, for whatever reason - maybe my art style, maybe the topic of my art, maybe just general wariness? I don't expect only praise and love, but I've gotten some bad ratings on my pieces that kinda unsettled me. Or is it normal to get bad ratings here, with no apparent system or criteria?

In any case... Maybe I'm just being a hypocrite, but I don't really feel like I'm the "typical" tumblr refugee. I'm not only here to post porn that is socially unacceptable everywhere else - in fact the majority of my art is sfw (even if it doesn't look like it at first glance). Not sure what I'm trying to get at here. I guess I just think too much about things.

At least I have not yet been the victim of a huge circlejerk of hate here yet, which is something I can't say about tumblr. Even if my blog should survive the purge, I feel like tumblr is no longer my home. I really want to give NG a chance to become my new home of sorts. Please give me this opportunity.

That's all for now, I think.

And that's it, folks!

These are what I believe are my best and most important pieces. For the whole rest, you can check out my website. It has a gallery page and a comics page.

From now on, I'll be uploading everything new that I draw here.


Posted by turret-heads - December 5th, 2018


Upload limit got raised. Rest of the art incoming.

Alright, one more day of uploading my old stuff, then I'm done for now.


Posted by turret-heads - December 4th, 2018


Hit the upload limit again today. You'll have to make it through one or two more days of art spam I'm afraid. I'm only uploading what I believe are my best pieces (and some other highlights), but I've accumulated like 400 drawings (not counting the comics) in the last two years so it's still a bunch.

Sorry!

Heya everyone,

like probably 99% of the other new users today, I'm an artist from tumblr who's migrating to here because they're shutting down blogs with NSFW content. Since I too post such content occasionally, I expect my blog to be taken down very soon.

This website seems welcoming, so I'm probably here to stay.

Will be posting some of my older pieces soon, and new art from now on.

Cheers
