It's one thing to critique. I'm an artist, I can handle critique because it is constructive and makes me improve.
But being mean for the sake of it?
Does it make you...happy to destroy the confidence of a young girl like me?
I'm a Librarian for pete's sake, the cute, geeky girl with little glasses, and a permanent genuine smile.
What could I possibly ever have done to you, to deserve such a response to something that was meant to be fun?
If something is not PERFECT, or in hindsight, a video game parody; does that mean that it's not WORTHY of Newgrounds?
Is something that contains characters that are original, and don't appear in any of your games, doomed to be beaten up and spat on?
I do these for fun, and I don't HAVE to share but I do, in the hopes that I can brighten a day, or make people laugh. And hey, it's better than a spam animation, right?
I'm sorry if your preference is American cartoons, fart jokes and video game parodies. if it is, BOY are you looking at the wrong girl.
I draw anime, I love Disney, I watch Star Trek - the Big Bang Theory - Family Guy, and I am female.
Newgrounds is a regular sausage-fest. I think my flashes probably won't appeal to you!
I will take a little break from Newgrounds, and see you on DeviantART, where we are a community and support each other, not bring people down.
Funny how the most critical people on here, are the ones with empty pages.
Try writing, casting, voiceacting and animating your own animation, THEN maybe you won't be so harsh.
To people who have been overwhelmingly flattering, fair and nice...I love you, and I really hope your loveliness rubbs off onto the rest of Newgrounds. The internet needs more people like you. ^^
I'll still hang around, but it will take a lot of convincing before I consider dabbling in/submitting animations again.
People have pointed out to me that the majority must think I'm at least okay, and fans are enough to make me stay on Newgrounds. ^^
