I've been making art and comics for quite a while, but around 2017, I finally got serious about it. I've been studying lots of fundementals that I previously neglected, began learning how to work digitally, and started working on my comic series I'd been meaning to make for YEARS.
Then I realized deviantART doesn't allow the smut I'd occassionally make, which was frustrating. THEN Tumblr crawled so far up its own ass that it impaled itself on its own ribs, which destroyed much of the hope I had there. My comic isn't even NSFW but seeing so many others getting needlessly thrown to the side was painful to see.
I'll admit, I stopped paying much attention to Newgrounds for quite a while. But seeing it have a resurgence is heartwarming for me, and it would be an honor to have my own stuff among the art that inspired me growing up.
I've got a lot to learn on so many levels, but my fellow artist friends will vouch for me that I've been studying hard. I'd personally like to think I've been improving leaps and bounds since taking art more seriously, and I'm hoping I can prove that here as well.
