Art Portal!? 2009-06-18 18:31:09 Reply

The Art Portal is here!

A big thank you to all the mods who helped test this.

If you think you have found a bug, first check the FAQ. If you're sure it's a bug, you can help us out big time by sending a very detailed report to Bob. Include the URL, your browser w/ version, OS w/ version, and a screenshot if applicable.

Features:
You can put up to 20 images in your art gallery, which will appear on your userpage. If an established artist likes your work, they may "scout" you and your art will then be included in the Art Portal search and listings. At this point you will gain the ability to scout new talent as well! We hope this system will keep the bar high.

You can put your art into one of five categories at the moment:

Illustration - Here is a Wikipedia article explaining it.
Fine Art - Here is a Wikipedia article explaining it.
3D Art - We are defining this as 3D Art created on a computer, not physical objects.
Pixel Art - Images created in the classic pixel-by-pixel format!
Other - If it doesn't fit the other categories, stick it here.

IMPORTANT: We aren't accepting photography. If you create something such as a sculpture or painting, though, you may submit a photo of it.

We recommend creating tags for specifics not covered by our categories, such as sculpture, comic, wallpaper, etc. The portal can be searched for these tags.

If your art is a work in progress, please leave unchecked the "Public Work?" checkbox on the submit form. Works in progress are better shared via your personal gallery than public showcase space.

Your can also make your art available to Flash developers. Mark your art as a character, object or background for use in Flash games and movies.

If you see art that is stolen, a photograph (not of a piece of art), or illegal, please report it via the "Report Abuse" link below the image.

When scouting a new artist, ask yourself, "Will (s)he take the Art Portal seriously and not clutter it with lackluster art?" If you have any doubts, don't scout. If you haphazardly scout users who do not put effort into their art and who clearly drag the portal down, you risk losing your scout privilege, or being removed from the portal altogether along with those you've scouted.

OK, have fun with your art! I'm going to crawl back into my cave and start coding my next top-secret web application - after a long, long vacation.

Art Portal!?

Nice new header. God, it'll be crammed once that Lit Portal comes along.


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.

Are sketches allowed? If so, what would they be considered as?

If the standard of work submitted so far is anything to go by, this will be an NG Masterstroke.

Lol.

I noticed the gallery section on a few userpages, I was wondering when it was going to be released properly. It looks like a good idea to me, I'll probably submit something soon.

I like the ratings. I always felt that Nene was left out, but now she has a place.

Who will be in the Lit portal though?


My PSN ID is xscoot. Crazy, huh?

Awesome. For a while, it's just been a rumor. I refreshed my page, and there it was! I was very surprised.

I wonder what his next top-secret job's going to be... probably the lit portal.

Nice to see the Art Portal finally up. I'll probably submit some stuff eventually and hopefully all of this will inspire me to get back to doing some practice with my drawing skills as I still need to look into that.

Great, now we're deviantart? Or maybe sheezyart...nevertheless, Newgrounds is more that this, it's bigger than some furry drawings and middle fingers. How is this art compared to animation and music?
