Good to be Back

I've effectively been off of Newgrounds for a while now but I finally got me an Art Scout again so I'm back in the Saddle. I'll still be posting my favorite works here, and you can always catch the majority of my work over at www.furaffinity.net/user/terdburgler. Granted, this place may have far more haters than... well, anywhere I've ever posted art, I know I've gathered a lot of fans here and I'd hate to keep them all hanging. Besides, we all know how haters are, and their stance on the continuation of their hating. Either way, see you NG peeps around!

I went unscouted again. It's irritating and it's really hard for me to keep caring. At this rate, Newgrounds will merely be a site I check as an after-thought. There may be days to weeks in delay before I check this place for uploading art. I'm just sick of dealing with the crap.

Unscouted Again

2011-01-28 19:17:41 by TerdBurgler

Okay, I'm really starting to get sick of this. Is Newgrounds just THAT anti-furry? I mean, I find a lot of people that are furry fans here on NG. I've made a decent name for myself as a Furry Artist here and yet this is the fourth time that I've been un-scouted. Doesn't help that I am given absolutely no information as to WHY I've been un-scouted. At least the first couple times, they explained it was due to content violations (which was bull-shit anyway since there's MUCH more adult content on this site by higher-profile artists that are glorified). It's just so irritating that I have to go through this again and again on NG. I would have stopped uploading on this site a LONG time ago if it hadn't been great exposure. It's just that the methods for getting scouted, rules for uploading and poorly written and regulated rules are an absolute mess, especially for a site that has such great rules for governing flash content.

I don't mind the trollers. I don't mind the haters. I'm used to it. What I can't stand is callous administrators that glorify a double-standard.

The Rest of my Works

2010-09-07 23:59:58 by TerdBurgler

Okay, I post a VERY small portion of my overall works here on Newgrounds. As a means of communal criticism, NG is fairly lacking. Often, comments are degraded to such blurbs as "Sucks" or "OMG! I just jizzed in my pants!" On top of that, it's much harsher on content, specifically when it comes to adult-themed art or small flashes (not full games, just dinky things to play with). With all of that in mind, it's understandable that a majority of my works aren't featured here. Now, I've gotten plenty of PMs on the subject and I figured I'd just clear that all up right here. There are a handful of websites that I post on, but one where I post the vast majority of my works. My favorite site, and also the one where I have the largest following, is FurAffinity.net (Yes, a furry site). But you can also find me on deviantArt, SoFurry and InkBunny. I'll post links to each one below.

And don't ask the obvious question of "Why are you on so many furry sites?" Over 90% of what I draw is furry and that's where people tend to not freak out when I draw it. :P

The Fight Goes On

Go un-scouted again. This has to be the... third time?

Either there is something wrong with the system or somebody must really have it out for me. Either way, I'm still going to remain persistent when it comes to the art portal. I've got a mission after all! Like many others, I am rather confused with Newground's hypocritical stance on Art Portal content. On one hand, we have a website that glorifies adult flashes. Not only is there a section of the website dedicated completely to adult material, but we commonly see adult features poking into the top 50 (See Jinks Hentai Parody).

Flip on over to the Art Portal. Any amount of art that borders on adult is abolished immediately. Even something as simple as a tight outfit seems to commonly qualify pieces to be rated M and even something as simple as an exposed buttox (which can even be shown on television) immediately earns you an A rating. Now I'm not going to ridicule the system too much on that point, but I have this to say: Newgrounds has a specifically ADULT section. By default, users are blocked from this section and non-users cannot even access it. You have to be a registered user that is of appropriate age and checks that they want to see adult material in order to view it. Now, with all these safe-guards in place AND the blatant show-casing of adult material in the Flash Portal, why is it so innapropriate to feature images of an ADULT nature in the ADULT section? Instead, artists like myself find that I have to censor myself to post my favorite works.

So I play by the rules. I never posted anything overly sexual. No pornographic dipictions of anything. Only artistic nudes and my clean pics. Quality certainly isn't an issue here, if you read any of my fan reviews. They are doing quite well. Instead, because I'm a furry artist, my work continues to get lumped into the Porn section and I get my scouting revoked once again without even so much as an explanation as to why. Yes, every single time I have been un-scouted I have not been given an explanation as to why. But I am not done yet.

I'll continue to submit images and I'll get re-scouted. I'll push the boundaries even if it's just slightly. One day, I just hope that Newgrounds nuts up and realizes it's blatant oxymoron. They need to let real Adult work into the Art Gallery or abolish Adult Flashwork.


About Me

2009-06-25 14:28:18 by TerdBurgler

I know most people will likely recognize me from my Beach Linda flash, but long before I ever did any amount of animation, I was an artist. Now I personally would qualify myself as a Furry artist, but that's not to say that I exclusively do furry art. I dabble in anime from time to time and even try realism (although I'm never satisfied with the results). Still, I do animations when the inspiration strikes me which isn't as often as I know many of my fans would like.

You can find me on deviantART and FurAffinity,net if you want to see my full galleries (including short animations). I'm only gonna post a handful here.
