2020//2021 THANK YOU (yeah! you!)

Posted by Hibachi - January 1st, 2021

Hey guys!! HAPPY NEW YEARS!!

I haven't made a blog post in what? A year? But with 2020 coming to an end, I felt like posting one now, even though I do not do this often. So for this blog post, I want to thank Newgrounds and you guys!!!

Ever since my last blog post at the end of 2019, I wasn't sure about actually posting on Newgrounds because I haven't been super active on the site. But after a few posts, I am so glad I did! Honestly, this site is the epitome of genuine content creations driven to make new fun, inspiring things!! Sure there are other platforms meant for artists like Artstation or Deviantart, but what they lack is a strong community. However, it doesn't even stop at artists on Newgrounds, it has extraordinary musicians, animators, voice actors, programmers, and developers! Sadly, although I'm not around on the site as much as I would like to, I seriously try my best to keep up with it. And I know I've been known to use Instagram to show off my work to build networking. But when it comes to just being a genuine artist just for artist's sake, then Newgrounds beats that platform by a landslide. This site inspires and motivates me more than Instagram has ever had when I've been on that platform the longest because Newgrounds provides a genuine experience of what it is like to be surrounded by creators who just want to create for the hell of it. I've just found so much enjoyment from all the content this site has placed, and with every creation, I always saw passion behind it and just honestly a fun time. I wish I've been more active on this site earlier to experience the community some more but with a new year coming around I sure want that to change. Anyway, I can keep talking about Newgrounds as long as possible, but I just wanna keep it short for you guys because I wanna thank you guys too!!

Thank you guys for supporting my work for this past year!! Honestly knowing that people love my work and what I do is one of the best feelings in the world! Even though I mainly do my art for myself, it still blows my mind that there are those who are willing to like it and even follow it too. It's an amazing experience I am entirely grateful for and seriously makes me happy. Actually, without you guys, I probably wouldn't have met other amazing artists out there since you help support and show my work to others. Seriously, I can not thank you enough for doing that and I seriously wish you the best.

I hope you guys have a happy new year!!!

Thank you, Newgrounds and you!!!




Happy New Year! And thanks for all the cool things you do!

Happy New Year Hibachi1! :)

Awesome to read that immense NG appreciation bit, and I agree, thereƤs no place like it when it comes to both finding inspiration and getting a response; really interacted with like-minded people. All around the world too. No limits. But the one thing it's just impossible to do here seems to be to keep up. XD So much! All the time! This crazy pace of this day and age!

Anyway that was fun to read, and always fun to tune into your work too, whenever there's time enough to really catch up. :)

Thanks for being awesome; making so much awesome stuff!

hibachi you're literally the best!!! happy new year man >:D
