Calendar Art, PAX, TGS, Madness Sep. 2nd, 2010 @ 07:18 AM Reply

Monthly voting time! There are five days left to visit your Account page and see if you are in the voting pool to decide the Best of August.

For anyone looking for 2011 Calendar Art ideas, I'd like to point out some NG-sponsored games with characters worth noting:

And that's just a few!

If you are in Seattle, come check out the Behemoth booth at PAX this weekend. I won't be able to make it this year but you can still meet Dan and check out BattleBlock Theater! They will also be selling Castle Crashers stuff including cell phone charms and a new king figurine that isn't available on-line yet. I'll be at the Tokyo Game Show later this month if anyone here is attending.

Madness Day is September 22nd! Read all about it. Movies, games, art, music, lit - PRIZES!

This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Also I never usually check out the Artist News or other blogs, but I just seen this in Oney's blogpost and I laughed.

Normally something associated with a recent release of theirs, maybe some game hints and tips or future updates to a submission

I personally like to check out artists news when they've made something new, and/or are asking for opinions about something. Especially if i recognize the artist.

If it's a super popular artist, like a Krinkles, JAZZA, et al, anything they have to say often intrigues me. Could be about their next project or what they had for breakfast. For other artists, it's just normally I check if they posting about new or just submitted works, asking for opinions, or when they complain about something.

Just a thought, Tom, how many users are picked from the NG community to participate in voting each month? I've only recently become one I think, but how do people get chosen?

Voting completed. Best of luck for the winners this month.
Happy Cow.

I don't really browse the section per se, but what I really like is when artists link to/embed/discuss animations and things they really like, have been influenced by, whatever, like ZekeySpaceyLizard used to do.

Voted! I'd rather vote on a top 20. Sometimes it's difficult to decide on just 10.

If there's humour in the title I find appealing or it's from an artist I follow... I'll click through.

I like the idea of artists putting in special extras in their news things, using the dumping grounds, like oney did.
I think I might start doing that, actually.

If it's an artist I like or a staff member, I'll usually click on it. Also worth reading if somebody has just released a website, websites are nice...

I have voted on the monthly thing just 10 minutes ago, thanks for the reminder, though. Also, good luck to everyone whom I voted for.

As for what interests me for artist news, I don't usually check it out unless its some popular animator or staff member updating what their next piece of work will be, or if the topic simply entertains me.

Seems like the theme may have been exhausted. Let's hope the day proves me wrong!

Well I expect Madness day to be one of a kind and cheer us up after a rather boring Clock Day.

As for artist news I am checking it up all the time. It makes me kind of sad that people only check out the front page news and not the blog page...

As for what I look for? Things that catch my eye.

Discussion topic: What sort of news interests you most when you browse the "Artist News" section?

Most of the time updates from series that I'm following. I'm still checking out Alvin-Earthworm's profile for updates of SMBZ 9 and visiting Get-Lost's profile to see if he started a new Castle episode yet. People who ask for something that I could probably do interest me, but I've never done anything like that because there already are like 30 responses then...

Also, I've got a question about Madness Day: are we allowed to participated in a contest (like, Music Contest) and also submit a Flash?
