Good day Art forum!

Check out the Newgrounds Hip Hop Competition here:
http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1156 297

And the MC Knock Out here:
http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1155 942

Check out those threads to become familiar with what's going on. There will be several audio competitions: MC Knock Out, Sample Battle, Battle for Newgrounds, etc. This is mainly an audio portal endeavor, but now it's time to bring you guys in! In the end I will be creating a flash submission that showcases the winning submissions of the Hip Hop contest. I was thinking that it would be nice to get some art to go along with it. So, along with the audio competition it's time for an art competition! There are no prizes yet, but I'm working on getting some stuff put together for the winning entries. I, for one, will mail the winners a physical copy of my mixtape "Got a Story to Tell".

Please submit hip hop related pieces of art, 550x400 pixels. The flash submission is going to be 550x400 pixels, so other sizes may be able to work but they'll either have to be stretched, shrunk, or cut slightly to fit the flash file.

Theme for contest: 80's Hip Hop
Think things like: Eazy E, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, and these dudes. The inspiration goes on forever. Take it as seriously or as goofy as you like, but please put effort into these! Only the best will be selected to go in the flash.

Entries should be submitted as some kind of compressed picture file, likely a .jpeg or .png or something of the sorts. I'm not sure what goes best with Flash, does anyone know?

Feel free to post any questions you may have! As well, here is the first entry to the competition from the one and only MindChamber, who approved this thread!

I may just participate but I don't think it would be an actual contest since there not any actual 1-3 places, it could easily be a collab though.

It is a contest!!! Judges will be selecting their favorite pieces of art! I've offered a prize to the winners, and MindChamber is working on other prizes too. A lot of art will be showcased, but in the end winners will be selected.

Most likely graffiti. If anything adding your own characters to your graff, but still making it feel like 80's graffiti.

To be honest Ash I've no idea why my internet is working at all, but it's certainly going.

Goddammit I hope I didn't withdraw for nothing...

Anyway, I'm going to investigate into this problem. I'm not the one paying for this internet =3

Also, here's a WIP to keep this post relevant

Well i'm post this since i'm no artist. I'ts my profile page picture, I drew it myself with sharpies and crayons hahaha plus a pencil sketch.

It's not really 80's Hip-Hop unless you take into account that I was born in 87, rap fluently, and the picture is a reference to my hip-hop persona

There is a microphone drawn in the top right corner cuz thats what I do. My face is drawn into the Y of 'Lyrikly' behind the microphone...cuz thats what i do. In the background on the bottom are the demons from my past that watch for my mistakes. Above the demons are my initials A.T.M

This Hip-Hop Comp. is pretty cool so I figure I'll participate in as much as possible. I'm lookin forward to the art, and the music. If you have a chance rate and review my Time Trial submission - http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/3 23049 - Featuring ShaggyHaired

P.S.- Sorry if the pic has weird sizeing, I have no idea how to change it
Also, Do I need to post this on the art portal in order to enter the contest?

Thanks for the invite tingtonger, I'll get on some design asap.

I have only one question though. Can we submit more than 1 piece?
