Yeah, if I ever write a really long review I always put it in a text file just in case the server doesn't respond or the internet glitches or something.

My problem was that I wrote it in word to begin with. So yeah, "boom" went the dynamite, but backing up long posts is a damn good idea. I'll have to keep doing that, internet has glitched up on em enough times, just... ouch.

There'll be more reviews

I have a suggestion of how the Art Portal would be improved. I think that Art Portal would be enriched if you were allowed to post photographs to the portal. DeviantART allows you to post photos to the site despite it being an Art site as you might guess and photographs would take the Art Portal of NG even with the DA. Besides, photographs would be really cool to watch. What do you say? I know that it might sound crazy but once realized, it just might work.

photos are allowed, they just have to be of something you made

sorry but have you seen DA's photo section, sure theres some good stuff, but most of it is, look what i found and took a picture of, arent i artistic, or heres a photo of me, aint i pretty (not complaining on that one) besides, who wants to be even with DA ours is better in quality control anyway

Besides, photographs would be really cool to watch. What do you say? I know that it might sound crazy but once realized, it just might work.

many people have said this before, your not the first

some photography is allowed but its gotta have real effort on your part allowed

The reason there's no photography is newgrounds has always been an art creation site, you don't create much in the lines of photography, it's mostly composition and a lot of luck to get a good shot.

And its hard to control quality, any idiot with a camera can take a picture of a bug and say he's a photographer, with what we have in the portal now, we can tell right off the bat if what we are looking at is good or bad, that's not as easy with photography.

So, I just figured out that supposedly Busy P is the #1 DJ in France, that means he beat out Daft Punk, something about that just...isn't right.

Could anyone direct me to the page where you guys suggested some artists for the interview, I can't seem to find it. Also, is there anything cool going on right now? Like on the art scene? Forum? I likes the new thread made by D-Noack the freakomonster thread, although it'd be really cool if we could actually draw something too, some freakomonster would be really great.

I want to blow this bitch out the water, and then put her back in and drown her. Drown.

Oh. My. God. Marry me. Seriously, there's a girl JUST like that in my class, only she draws fuckin dragons and animals all day, while she constantly criticizes my drawings and what not.
Anyway, if you don't have supplies then get either acrylic or watercolor. Assuming you have never painted before, oils will be too complicated. As for tips and such, look up a color wheel, so you know what to mix. Also, NEVER use black. If you want someting to be darker, use a blue or something.
Since your doing a volcano sunset (B.A, btw) you might want to chose an interesting pallet.
Hope i helped.

poor bastard, having to use acrylics. First I just want to say that if you aren't a good artist to begin with, some people telling you how to do stuff on the internet wont ever make you become a better one right away, especially not with something as complex and versatile as painting. Real life medias don't have filters to make the piece look less shitty, there is no undo key.

My biggest hints would be get your hands on some acrylic medium, mat medium will work fine. bring it to class and tell the teacher she can go fuck herself if she says you cant use it. This will make your paints dry a bit slower when you mix it into them on your pallet. They will also go on smoother and will allow you to do a bit of blending on the canvas itself. Next make sure you dont use random ass colors, using all colors of the rainbow is nice and all, but in a painting if you have a red somewhere MAKE SURE THAT RED SHOWS UP SOMEWHERE ELSE FARTHER AWAY. Especially in the case of a volcano, where so much light is being cast on EVERYTHING. You should have high contrast for the super bright spots and have those brights reflect appropriately on the things around them.

All i can say is good luck, but i doubt a first time acrylic painting will do anything to wow or deter someone who is a giant weeaboo tool.

No, you marry ME Demo. Theres a girl in my class who draws dragons all day too! She laughs at my drawings (sometimes understandably, but still!). She totally has something with her head. She really, truly believes dragons are real. (She also hisses at you when you say hi. No lie.)

whatever we say would be based on opinion, you gotta decide whats better to use for you, everyone has different tastes and preferences so you might be different, like i use photoshop for coloring and sai for lineart

those 2 programs look pretty similiar though, but iv never used sketchbook pro, so i couldnt compare em

Sketchbook pro and photoshop are very different. Sketchbook pro is too free form for me, not enough tools or options to do what I want.

Anyway, I wanted to ask you guys something.
Did you guys enjoy highshool? I mean, really enjoy it, not just get by, but have it the best four years of your life?
Because for me, its just sorta meh. I've met alot of new people, got new friends, the classes are good, but I still don't actually "like" highshool.

High School being the best four years of your life is kind of an idiotic stereotype. People who say that are usually the kind who end up not doing a whole lot with the rest of their life; ie: the guy who spends his entire life reminiscing about how awesome being the Quarterback on his High School football team was, or the person who parties himself out of college because he developed bad habits in high school and ends up with a shit job later on.
You should try and enjoy what you can, though. Don't let it be the best years of your life, but don't just shrug it off, because you're gonna miss not having to worry about the hectic shit that comes later in life.

God, I sound like an adult. What the hell do I know? I'm still in high-school. This is just shit I've noticed.

I graduated on Thursday. I can't say that I enjoyed every moment of it, but I'll probably miss it purely because I've become accustomed to it and the people there for the last 6 years. I'd think more problems arise as you get older, and the reason people reminisce about highschool is because those were the days when you didn't even give a shit and you just hung out with your mates all day long.

Highschool was enjoyable in some aspects, not in others.
I enjoyed the fact of how laid back it was and how little work I had to do, but I didn't like how mine was filled with a bunch of douchebags.

I hated high school, with every fiber of my body. And pretty much everyone in it I loathed as well, so much so that it was to the point where when ever one of them died I was publicly laughing and enjoying that fact (seriously).

A lot of people said that once I left I would miss it and get all nostalgic for it, and I would probably be the guy who comes back to visit every so often. They were wrong, I don't miss a single thing about it, or a single person from it. In fact every time I see someone from high school it sorta ruins my day (save for the few friends that I still keep up with naturally). I didn't go to my 5 year reunion, and I don't plan on going to my upcoming 10 year one either.

And no i wasn't bullied or a loser or anything. I was well liked overall, had a girlfriend, passed my classes easily (my grades were shit because I did literally 0 homework but i never got less than a B on a test or in class anything), I just despised the place and the people and everything that went along with those two things.

Highschool

I had a pretty hard time in highschool, I wasn't engaged with any of the work, I was bored in literally every class, even art classes, I didn't feel like I was being taught to or challenged in any way. I scored really well on tests but did almost none of my assignments because it just felt like pointless busy work which was something I couldn't stand.

I was a bit of a rabble rouser as well and would try to challenge the system in any way that I could. I was an outspoken critic of the way they ran my school and the way education, in general, was done in the US and would write anonymous essays about it and post them in classrooms. It was before any of the school shooting hysteria so we had more leeway about what we could do, say, wear and carry around, however, some of my behavior was still alarming to the faculty and I was eventually banned from the school library. I had the attitude (which, to a certain extent I still carry around) of "it's up to me to expose the weaknesses of the system."

I had good friends, some of whom I still keep up with, but I had some health problems that prevented me from being at school a lot of the time so I eventually just dropped out and got my GED.

I'm a much happier person now that I'm done with the 'sitting in a classroom' era of my life. =]
