Flood The Portal Fridays! 7 2011-03-21 16:56:35 Reply

Hello.

On the first Friday of every month, the art forum have a special event called the FLOOD THE PORTAL FRIDAY, yup.

What's Flood the Portal Friday, you ask?
The idea is to swamp the art portal with the same thumbnail, with pics based on the same theme, right at the same time. This is not a competition, it's just a bit of dumb fun.

If you're still unclear about what it's about, check out the previous months:
ftpf01
ftpf02
ftpf03
ftpf04
ftpf05
ftpf06

The Rules?
- Make sure the thumbnail of your pic is EXACTLY the one shown below. Don't make it green, don't flip it, don't change the text, don't do anything! That's meant to be the icon that's Flood the Portal! You can change it later on or remove it, after 24 hours have gone.
- You can either work the thumbnail into the pic, or just dump the thumbnail in the corner, whatever you want.
- Feel free to make as many pictures as you wish, so long as they're not shite.
- Don't upload it early, it's gotta be a FLOOD of pics on the FRIDAY! If you can't do the submission time, then you shouldn't really join. Unless you fancy drawing something, of course.
- If it's early, an art mod will delete it. Art mods are lame.
- You are expected to give a decent review to the other submissions for this flood. We`re not gonna enforce this, but it`s good sportsmanship if you do.

The theme for the sixth flood is GREYPRIL FOOLS.
Or just GREY, whatevs.
The theme can be as literal or loosely interpreted as you want, so long as you include the thumbnail.

Tag your submission(s) with "ftpf07", so we can look back at them in the future.

The sixth flood will begin on the 1ST OF APRIL AT 6PM NEWGROUNDS TIME, and the thumbnail can be downloaded here.

Just to recap, the art portal is meant to look like this:

Honestly I am actually quite interested in joining the flood for once.
Kinda fortunate that April Fools this year is on a Friday.
I shall try and make this flood a big one.

What's wrong with that?
Apart from looking a bit phallic.

I think it's a cool theme. I was thinking about something along the line "When all candles be out, all cats be grey", but then again we had black cat as the first theme already.

And I did not very well on that one. xD

Also I learned a thin or two about greys, warm greys and cool greys while searching for inspiration. Let's see what I can do with that.

I said this on stickam, but I thought I'd put it up in the forum as well.
If the redesign launches before, or at the day of the flood, the background colours won't match, same goes if they do another chinagrounds-esque thing, which I think is worth a thought or two.

I suppose a transparent background would do, but the icon is already 'set' in the first post so I dunno

simple solution: Hue/Saturation.
someone shares the exact numbers, and it's fixed.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

I've had a word with Chairman Mao, who's a mellow type of guy, and he suggests that we just go with it, and take the risk. It's just a group activity.
