Art Portal 5 Year, Power of 4, NATA Jun. 18th, 2014 @ 11:31 AM Reply

Today is the 5 year anniversary of the launch of the Art Portal! You might see a lot of thumbnails with I-Bot and a slice of cake - the actual art pieces are remakes of artists' first ever art uploads on NG. Check out their progress! For example, Jazza:

  • Orc - Remade
    Orc - Remade by Jazza

    My entry to the Art Portal's 5th birthday jam! I hope you enjoy it! It took me 8 hours and I loved making it and challenging ...

Today is also the deadline for the Novice Round of the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation. If everyone gets their submissions done on time, there will be 32 entries total!

We just wrapped up the Construct 2030 Jam, please check out and review as many games as possible! Winners will be announced later this month. These games are in HTML5, developed with Construct 2.

If you're itching to make a game, The Power of Four is happening all summer and into October! Create a team of four and make a game with a theme of four. We accept web games in SWF, HTML5 and Unity format. Here are the teams so far, announce yours in the Po4 thread!

Also Robot Day 2014 is ON and will be July 10th. Make any piece of content (movie, game, art, music) with a robot theme and participate! I still need to figure out what we can do for prizes this year, sorry for the short notice it really snuck up. This will be our 5th Robot Day!

You would be doing a massive solid for Evil-Dog if you backed the Beast's Fury Kickstarter. It has come so far, with just 30 hours to go! Please tweet it to your friends at least.

Come back tomorrow for Throwback Thursday (classics from this week in NG history) and then Friday for Follow Friday; I've already been working on my list of cool people to check out this week.


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

This is something I've pondered a lot but it is a good opportunity for musicians to let them work directly with a team and produce music that is tailored for the game. Voice actors can be unlimited because you might really need a variety of voices for different characters AND voice actors get to work directly with teams. Music, however, can benefit from the consistency of a dedicated musician composing for the themes of the game. If we opened things up to use non-team music, it would pull a ton of opportunities away from the musicians on NG who want to work with people.

Man, Robot Day being a thing again this year really tempts me to actually finish my submission from last year... I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it done on time though, 'cause I don't know how long it will be ;3. I guess I can start working on it again and see how I feel.

Also, speaking of anniversaries, isn't Newgrounds 20 years old next year? That's a pretty big occasion, anything special planned? ;3

Been thinking about a 20 year logo that goes in the header for the whole year... Pretty nuts!

Wow, that's awesome. I still remember when the Art Portal was introduced, what a great idea that was.

Also; a lot*

If you're not doing Power of Four, are an artist, and want to be a part of a potentially amazing project over the Summer and beyond:

I'm looking for a 2D pixel artist to help me get my game "Kickstarter Ready," as right now the engine is mostly done but it's time to start making it look pretty.

More information here.


It's the only way out!

You should get someone for characters, someone for BGs, a musician and make it Po4!

Happy Birthday Art Portal! Going to be interesting seeing how everybody's evolved during these years.

I'm wondering a bit about what features and upgrades the portal itself has seen during this time btw, would've been cool with some kind of timeline detailing that evolution, all I can think of right now is that recent thumbnail grid revamp, in good time for the occasion!

Hey Robot Day's my birthday. :D

So Robot Day is literally just...Robots?

I'm always assuming there's some catch or more difficult rules than just simple theme, but hmm...

---

Robot comes from the Czech Robota, meaning 'forced labour' or slave and was intended to refer to automated 'slave' labour in factories, as opposed to the generalized 'all mechanical beings' it's come to mean.

Very different than say 'android' which means 'simulated man' or 'man-like being' from the Greek 'andrós'.

A contrast between 'the slave' (Robot) and the replicated man (Android) would be interesting. [I can't say replicated man without thinking about Metropolis.]

Given the short timescale...an artistic platformer about a slave rebelling? ...overdone? IDK.

[Don't everyone do that now that I said it publicly.]

Happy birthday Art Portal, thanks for 5 years of things I wouldn't see IRL, it's been like a free pass to a gallery or museum.
