Flood The Portal Fridays! 11 Jan. 4th, 2012 @ 01:13 PM Reply

Hello.

On the first Friday of every month, the art forum have a special event called "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 ftpf07 ftpf08 ftpf09 ftpf10
Holiday Flood '11

The Rules?
- Make sure the thumbnail of your pic is EXACTLY the one shown below. Don't make it blue, don't flip it, don't change the text, don't do anything! That's meant to be the icon that will 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 IMPORTANT STUFF===
The theme for the eleventh flood is DRAGONS.That's right, flipping DRAGONS.
The theme can be as literal or loosely interpreted as you want, so long as you include the thumbnail.
(you can leave the flood and lose the thumbnail later, if you want)

Tag your submission(s) with "ftpf11", so we can look back at them in the future.

The eleventh flood will begin on the 3RD OF FEBRUARY AT 6PM NEWGROUNDS TIME, and the thumbnail can be downloaded here.

... I can lie, and pretend that's the reason.
I just went for a simple theme which people could be interested in.

Huh, that's a lucky coincidence.

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

What a great way to celebrate the year of the dragon!

I'm a new member (well I just started posting stuff), but I'd love to participate. Are new members allowed to join in?

Looks great! I like the different markings and fur colors on the head, you should consider adding some on the back or legs too. But yeah, it looks pretty finished.

And cool, as per usual.

WIP. Not done much work on it so far but this gives you the basic idea of what I'm going for. I still have a lot of detail and shade to add yet, also I'm thinking about completely changing the head.

This picture was uploaded from my Blackberry so the quality might be bad.

Added more detail on some parts, and i think the markings look good on him, thanks.

That rear leg looks a bit clumsy to me, maybe because its huge compared to the front legs, or that it's misplaced to where i'd expect it on a lion's body.

I think you could get away with removing it completely, since the body is resting on the ground, and the body and long tail would probably make it difficult to walk.

It's reminding me of Falcor from Never Ending Story.

'Cept more bloody.

i'm going to make a mecha-dragon and this was just an idea. i think a more traditional shape would be better though.

WIP. I kinda put this to the back of my head as I have been buried under with college work at the moiment but here is how far I have gotten so far. I admit it is still a way off getting complete.

I like what I am seeing so far, even though there is by far not enough stuff for my taste. :P

Interesting how you incorporated the thumbnail, Decky. Looking forward to see it finished.

Dunno if this even qualifies as WIP, but let's just say it's my idea:

That's looking pretty awesome.
Try putting in some values (darks/lights) and areas of contrast to get some focal points. atm (like with a lot of your stuff) it doesn't have a very clear read.
