Stickam isn't really working for me. I blame it on the nets.

Anyway, just a quick question, what's the deal with using photographs in art? Acceptable, as in with a ton of editing, or just not really good unless you've drawn the whole thing?

Anyway, example below, just gone ahead and drawn something, but not really sure that, even though the photo is a royalty free one and that it's been raped with a mountain of editing (and I really did not want to draw anymore) that using photos is anything other then downright inethical (although it's already downright cheap).

Actually I'm hearing a lot of people saying that it's the best 3D sonic game yet. Honestly, I already liked the original games, so it's not much of an improvement for me, but obviously it's not any worse then their usual games. Although calling it "Sonic Colours' and including a bloody hat as incentive (I know like, 3 people who wear hats. Ever) wasn't the best marketing decision.

Man screw Sonic, they have given us nothing but shitty games for the past ten years, though I have completely nothing against the original ones on like, the Genesis and what not. Though the one for the...Lynx I believe, was pretty bad and it gave me eyesores, though it's a portable game from the 90s what do you expect.
In the news of games (other than that New Vegas is incredibly awesome) does anybody have any games that they can't wait for to come out.
Mine are dead Space 2, Killzone 3, and (which I have preordered currently) Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Sega's ideas: "if megaman re did it and made it 8-bit, then we can do the same thing and be just as cool and popular!"
Haha, no. Sonic couldn't make the transition to 2-d to 3-d.

Yet alone from 3-D to 2-D, lol. Also, Sonic was more 16 bit than 18 bit, just clearing that up. I didn't want WW3 starting.

I don't know if you guys have heard, but SEGA also wised up and made a classic play style Sonic 4 with awesome graphics. Very much like how "New Super Mario Brothers" was done.

I got it for XBLA and it's pretty damn slick, you'll love it if you played and enjoyed the originals.

You know guys, I think we need a Photography Forum. So photography can have their own so they wouldn't be downed by people like us. What do you think?

I know there is a thread somewhere where you put your ideas for newgrounds. Care to help me?

Art Thread/NG Art - View it. /I love rainbows do you?/

Their kind isn't welcome here!

But fo' srs, they can just use here. It's Art, photography threads and such are allowed, just not in the Art Portal. I fail to see the problem.

So this is the new title that everyone's raving about at the moment huh? I am still actually playing the original DOOM that came out in 1994

Personally, I can't wait for LittleBigPlanet 2. I'm also waiting for the remake of Tactics Ogre. Though I think it looks kind of ugly, I love SRPGs and that's the original one, and I'd love to play it. Lastly, the 3DS and its starting lineup look magnificent.

Other things I'm looking forward to: Marvel V. Capcom 3, Disgaea 5, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Pokemon Black/White, etc.

Haven't been interested in New Vegas. It looks too same-y for me, and I can only take so much of bleak, near-monochromatic wasteland. I get that there are neon light on the Vegas strip that add some much-needed color, but still, I think Fallout 3 was enough for me, great though it was. Come on, Bethesda, make us an Elder Scrolls V already.

The thing about New Vegas is that I feel that it has a lot more liveliness to it, like there are more people and factions to get to know and whatnot. So, sure it's very monochromatic at times, but there are places that kinda break away from "walk over this rock".
From what I know Elder Scrolls V is currently in development.

I've been having such a creative explosion this weekend. I've filled about 5 pages in my sketchbook plus 3 vector drawings on the computer >__> I kinda like this but now I can think of nothing except ARTARTART which wouldn't be that bad I suppose.

Speaking of costumes, I didn't get to make one this year :/ last year I was Vince from ShamWow, the year before I made a Pac-man costume from an exercise ball out of fiberglass and yellow duct tape, and the year before I was the pyramid tetris block and my friends were the other blocks.

I wanted to be Sub Zero this year, with a fire extinguisher on my back that was connected to my wrists for my ice beam :/ that never happened. I worked all Halloween weekend -_-

Photography
Photography is a perfectly acceptable art form, just not for the art portal. People are more than welcome to create personal photography threads. Why, brycemilburn has his own photography thread, proving that it's perfectly acceptable.

Gaming
All I'm waiting for is Skyward Sword. There are 3 main reasons why.
1) one-to-one sword control
2) running up walls
3) prequel to ocarina of time

Game Coming Soon(ish)

I have a hard-on for the following games:
-LittleBigPlanet 2
-RAGE
-Marvel Vs Capcom 3
-Bioshock Infinite
-Twisted Metal
-Duke Nukem Forever (OMG, it's actually gonna happen!)

Of course, I'll wait to hear if they wind up being good or not before I decide to purchase any, but I'm pretty confident in my list.

On the topic of games, I recently bought Super Scribblenauts, which was one of the main games I was looking foward to coming out this year. It's pretty awesome, has alot more depth than the original. If you've played the original, I reccomend it.

Yep, I knew that. A friend of mine who's a fan of Mega64 told me about this.

Buy/Download an art program, buy a tablet. Then figure out how the program works, layers, changing/editing brushes and other things and just start practicing.

Sherlock / Modern Translations of Classics

Okay, so over the past three weeks I've been watching the BBC production Sherlock on Masterpiece Mystery on PBS. It's (obviously) based on the Arthur Conan Doyal characters but has been set in contemporary times and with new mysteries and such. I think it works, but I am a lifelong fan of Sherlock Holmes and may be biased.

Anyway, have any of you seen the show?

Do modern takes on classics work for you?
