dear chairman tom fulp
because of your team's lack of effort put forth into the art portal, i denounce you from my respect and give you the "lazy ass of the week" award, congratulations, for the following reasons;
1; you don't let photography and other forms of art on the art portal.
even though i have seen excellent pieces on the art portal with photography elements been displayed on the art portal. While my art competition worthy pieces would be rejected, other's shine. i find this rather offensive to as an artist. there should be no rules for the art portal other than the usual no abusively offensive or obscene material (unless it's uses said material to convey a serious message, i would love to see someone push the boundaries in that manner).
the only medium allowed on the art portal, according to the written rules, are drawings either done on paper or on the computer. i understand that the celebrity flash artists at new grounds like johnny utah and stamper and so on are excellent at drawings and cartoons like the ones allowed in said rules. now this is extremely unfair because you're writing the rules so that you will be the best in the portal (with the exception of some great work i've seen by other artists), this a spit in the face to anyone who's proud to call their self an artist.
2; getting into the art portal
"just be patient, someone will see your work soon!" this is what newgrounds has told me before, and it's a load of crap. the only way to get into the art portal is to cry out for attention, which apparently is not allowed. how the hell does everyone else get into the art portal if they're at the same level i am? i'll never know.
3; ability to remain stable in the art portal.
i have been into the art portal twice now, only to be ripped of it's opportunities both times. during the most recent Newgrounds live broadcast i constantly annoyed people to see my artwork. one person did, and said person got me back into the portal. however, i've recently just be kicked out again. it's embarrassing to see that message telling me i've been "unscouted". personally, it's not only an insult to a serious artist like myself, but it's also taking away my ability to show case my artwork to people who would be interested.
and there you have it, i've said my piece mr. fulp. as you can see, i'm quite disgruntled by the way the art portal is run. writing the rules so the best stay the best and never care about the rest.
oh, and here's a little something i made last night using stencils (the autocratic and controlling attitude of nixon reminds me of someone >:C ). too bad i can't put it on the art portal. if tom fulp reads this, makes changes to the portal, and lets me in, maybe i make a stencil piece for pico day...
