Ok I noticed someone asked if you had a color scheme in mind & I didn't see an answer.

Umm... no. No color sheme. You can do the totem in any color you like, but dont draw a background. Only the totem.

Due to the lack of reply to my question, I'm making a rainbow dick.
Hope you are happy now.

Lol I doubt she is really getting mad. By the way you may be sorry for overseeing her question, but you still didn't answer it.

To remind you:

If you asked me, I think a colourful totem is not such a big problem. I actually think it can look quite interesting.

Also, what direction is the light coming from?
Is there a lot of light or a little?

Important question, what you say? I think the totem is somewhere outdoors, isn't it?

And if you ask me what my ideas are, idk. I JUST DON'T KNOW.
So don't ask.

What are your ideas Kashi?

BTW since there are no "position numbers" anymore, I hope I can get my laptop fixed soon and join this cool collab idea.

Cool that you join my collab! To answer Kakashis question for color shemes: no, theres no special color sheme. You can do it colorful like a rainbow or monochromatic, its up to you. You dont need to do a traditional totem, just use your imagination...

For fucks sake kid, you've got an amazing idea for a collab and you want to represent it like THAT? This is the damn menu screen you're talking about, make something noteworthy for it! Here's a bloody 15-minute sketch of a totem that spells "totem" and looks acceptable. You could even put a fireplace in there to play with lightning effects or something like that >_>

Honovi Honon, Strong Bear no faith in you or collab. Sad day : <

Dude, you've gotta try harder.

You've got some pretty great artists participating in your collab, if the participants list is accurate, and here you are drawing BASICALLY the same terrible drawing over and over again.

You're making a collab with however many people in it, and when people load it up the first thing they're going to see is that terrible drawing. And people WILL judge it by its menu.

Just like in both of your other parts, you have this picture that 1. looks nothing like an actual wooden totem, 2. looks more like a plank of wood than a cylindrical pole 3. looks like you drew it in 5 minutes. I don't know how long you actually spent on it, but that's what it looks like.

Plus, you spelled Totem with an 'F'. What the hell?

You say that you're going to be doing all the backgrounds for the collab, but I shudder to think of what it's going to look like if this is the standard that you're going to draw them to.

Seriously, dude. Put some gosh darn diddly arned effort in. Take a look at a picture of a totem, or even, like, a wooden pole, and see where you're going wrong.

Jesus Christ.

You should ask someone else too make the menu. Considering your menu is below the standard.

Hey Chameneon, the comments may sound a little rude to you, but they are all right and full of good intentions. I'd recommend letting someone else do the menu for the collab.

If Test would offer to, I think he should do it. His 5 minute sketch over there looks pretty promising and I think he could make it into something very impressive.

I've actually created alot of menus for newgrounds collaborations in the past, perhaps it's best I make the menu/preloader?

Examples:

Your menus look downright great, but for this one, I'd suggest putting a totem somewhere in it.
Even if it is a shadow in the backdrop, there needs to be 1 totem in it. Or, ooh, how about making the totem parts the buttons?

If we can pull this even further: in the actual flash, when progressing to the next part of the totem, the part gets kicked away and the rest of the parts do a hop and land lower. You know, as in Totem Destroyer if you remove 1 block, the rest does this little hop. Same as that, but not a game and in close-up.

Ok guys, so here we go: I would really like you to make the menu and preloader if you could do that... Also will you do the scroll thing ( that one that moves the screen up if you go at the top with your cursor)? And the last thing is like I said I will do a new totem for the menu which you could put in the background of the menu maybe???

How kind. I was thinking some nice art man could make me a totem I can put against the sky with a transparent background :D.

This would be a little tough as I want to add a function to scroll back down too ^^.

Sure I can do the menu and preloader, I will have to get an art man to do a totem.
