Art Portal's 5th Birthday! Flood 2014-06-06 10:44:51 Reply

Hello.

As commented in this thread, the art portal was opened on the 18th of June.
To commemorate the occasion, we hope to have a special art portal flood.

The idea is to redo one of your first submissions to the art portal.
HOPEFULLY you've improved in 5 years! But you may have a different approach to your work, too.

We're going to do a flood, so that people browsing the portal will wonder what's going on! This will involve
- Submitting your pic on the 18th of June (any time or timezone is fine),
- Use the thumbnail attached to this post, which will be flooding the portal (you can remove it later), and
- Tag your work "artportal5", so that we can check out all the stuff in the future.

Like all the other floods, we can use the opportunity to post some reviews on each other's stuff.
Any other questions, just post them in this thread. Post some WIPs, too!

My first submission is a pixel art, and I still doing pixel art until now, lmao. But this will be funny anyway :) Maybe I will think in something cool to make.

glad I already have this done to an uploadable state, now I can concentrate on polishing it up for the day of, or maybe I could just lounge around and catch up on that backlog of podcasts I got going on, either or.

anyway should I get rid of the text or keep it there? I only really have it because the area of which it occupies is barren without it, also that red feels good being there.

and yes, I am going to mess with that implied shadow so it doesn't look all mucky and maybe the hands on the giant, but what else am I missing?.

Cant see why not, the more the merrier.

So i has a look at what i posted 5 years ago... oh my, at least i have improved a little bit since back then!

not sure if i'm going to keep it on the paper or not... i might change it from been on a notepad to been drawn in photoshop... i think it would be cool rather then doing a carbon copy as such.

Let's see how much I've improved since March 2013 (when I drew it).

For a second there, I thought that was your first art submission. Dang, lol.

Good rework. As for the rays, instead of having them shoot outward it would be cool if it resonated towards the person. And in the original, isn't the person drawing the godlike character?


No!

no I believe if I remember correctly that they were showing them something, I think it was a flute or a coin, or a shard of something.

OK guys so I made this little drawing today. ALERT contains spoilers on the anime ONE PIECE XD
Not sure if I will change it too much but I will be working on the background, smooth down the lineart and correct the shades and lights. That will be later, I guess it's enough for today!
I'd love to get any critics on the drawing.
Thanks for your time ^^

Since I have only a few drawings on Newgrounds, I'm making something specially for the anniversary (even though I haven't been scouted yet). Here's a preview.

I'm pretty sure I deleted my first uploaded pieces back but even with that "quality filter deletion" my oldest survivor is still terrible, here's hoping I actually finish my redo!

if you delete an art pic, you will get onto the deleted page here you will see all the art you have ever deleted ordered on date.

here's my deleted first submission, done in glorious MS paint. I have already begun reworking it; I'm not sure whether to post a thumbnail of the new one on this thread or to just wait til the flood.

My first drawing was a drawing of Bigfoot, is it okay if I make my current drawing a cyborg Bigfoot?
If not I have a backup, another early drawing of mine was a monster, I redrew it, but added a mouth, hair, and other abstract features?
Is it fine if I add new things, or does it really need to be same drawing, current style?

I think you'd be fine to add new things. So long as somebody can put the two side-by-side and say "yup, this pic is that pic, but better".

If you're bored by your character pic and want to make it a cyborg, so-be-it.
