Im just worried its going to be spammed to hell with ms-paint sticks. There has to be some kind of filtering system, maybe like the flash portal but nowhere near as harsh..

Yeah, exactly. I hope they have the "under judgement" system on it, and only decent pictures can get through. Not so sound harsh but sketches, practices etc shouldn't be allowed. That's what the Art Forum is for.

Well you have to think about it. How many people that have user accounts HAVE FLASH and SUBMIT? It's not that large of a ratio (people that have flash : people that don't have flash).

But when you put a portal up for something that EVERYONE ON NEWGROUNDS has access to, aka 'art' aka MS PAINT, you're kind of asking for trouble.

The first 100 submissions in the portal listing will be underjudgment alone... It will also spawn new spam groups for image submissions. PORN PIX PARADE HALSDKJFLKASHD

What does everyone think of the Art Portal? Any features you're hoping to see (or not see)? I'm anxious for it, but at the same time... scared! Not sure what to expect! Could be a nightmare! lol

I'd like mandatory tagging of what Medium(s) you used, as well as filters, so that I can filter anything made with MS Paint :P

I think we need to prepare our biggest and greatest pictures to counter any such 5 second MS Paint pictures! That way it won't be cluttered with garbage on day one.

Is there a new bot going to be made for a new portal?

Doesn't it tick you off when you work your ass off on something and all of a sudden your computer goes gay on you? then *facepalm* I didn't save! I know I know...save frequently because you can't rely on technology all the time, but I just can't get into this habit. I don't want to stop to save when I'm in the zone. You can't break the zone!

yeah i know what you mean. a year or so ago though, i started using a crapload of hotkeys for any program i use. my finger is within a half inch of ctrl+S almost all the time so i just hit it by instinct after a few changes by instinct.

im also kind of ocd and make a few copies of the project file too :P

I wouldn't be surprised if the first month is people spamming out their entire portfolio onto the portal in one go. Think it'd be much better for people to have some fresh stuff at the ready.
I've a feeling the art forum rules may get relaxed too.

Art Portal sounds like a good idea, but as almost everyone has stated already, the almost inevitable danger of poor art spammage is quite horrifying to think about. I hope voting is enabled so we can blam those suckers back to the lonely bastards they came from!

Then again, voting in my particular case could prove fatal to me... not everyone approves my, hm, "style"... In anyone's case, though, it would suck to get his/her piece blammed by 16> year old angsty kids (not all kids are angsty, mind you.), just because they don't like a paticular style / genre (macabre, ect.). So, I think it would somewhat help people out if they could put their art into categories, as in what the age limit would be, and in which style / genre the picture would fall into.

People are mostly searching for comments on their work, it would be a great place to get those, so at least I have thumbs up for the project, while being somewhat cautious.


Sure, we all share one thing. We will all die sooner or later. Thank god.

Don't mind me jumping in here... just gonna give my two cents

But the real question is, if an art portal is created, how much use will the art forum be? The portal sounds like an alright idea, but how do you judge what art can pass or not, if it's on a grading system like the flash portal? Good work could be deleted or blammed because, as already stated, someone may not like it. Newgrounds just isn't the kind of place that you go to post art that you'd want constructive criticism on. Yes, I know that there's a handful of people out there that would, but what needs to be focused upon is the masses.

If a poll was taken, I bet that this site is an overwhelming majority of teenage males. Then look at the majority of those guys of what they do/don't do on Newgrounds. You'd probably find that that majority isn't interested in giving constructive critisim on "pretty pictures."

Though it would be nice, I'm personally not 100% for the art portal. What would happen to the art forum? How would the art being submitted pass, or how would it be considered (dis)qualified? For those who would use it properly, it could be helpful, but I think that if you want to have a place to upload your art, I'd say try Deviantart or Sheezyart. No offense to NG, love ya, but it just doesn't strike me as art portal material.

But I could be wrong. Maybe, if initiated correctly, it could be a really nice thing.

sorry for the rant, here at school, just finished my finals, don't have anything to do

Theres a flash forum and a flash portal, and that works out. The same goes for audio portal/forums. The forums maybe wont be the same way as they are now, but i dont think it would be neglected because of a art portal system.

yeah. every post probably won't have to start with an art submission. you could ask questions like 'what type of program is best for doing this? or doing that? etc..'

the forums would probably be more about WIP and questions on certain techniques etc.

this I can definitely look forward to.
maybe the forum could even graduate into a more mature form of artistic discussion, a la conceptart?

Flash.com? Have you tried that? Adobe flash is the Flash program. There are other, lesser, cheaper programs, but most quality stuff is Adobe (formerly Macromedia) Flash.

I wish people were a bit more open & active here in the art forums, since commenting has not yet been proved to cause anything fatal. Oh, and anybody have a clue when the NG Skecthbooktour '09 is starting, because I saw the '08 edition, and was all fired up. I gotta take a part in this year's effort!

probably cus a lot of flash animators have no interest in artistic appreciation. just funny dialogue, humor, and sprites...

also, the flash forum is just flooded with help topics and questions, not much pertaining to their animation critique.

Yeah. There's ZERO sense of community here in the Art Forum... it's pretty sad. I guess I'm just use to the Flash Forum Lounge... people know each other, or get to know each other by just talking about whatever. But this thread has never taken off. Maybe it's s full of random passer-by's that spam their ms-paint crap and don't stick around, and/or art snobs that are too busy (or think they're too good) for casual conversation. I dunno.

topic of conversation for the creation of more art forum comradery:

is anyone currently aiming for an art-related degree in college? anyone enrolled in a private art college? I ask because with my senior year of high school coming up, I'm totally worried that I won't be good enough to get accepted by the time I graduate.

portfolios like these set the bar pretty high. :-/
