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?

... I thought it would be the other way round?
I'm a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, but to me it's something quintessentially Victorian, and shouldn't be put into modern times.

Benedict Cumberbatch is great as Sherlock, but Martin Freeman is playing a "Martin Freeman character" rather than Dr. Watson. I've only seen the first two episodes, which always start off great, but the plots suddenly lose control and slide into stupid at the finale.

I always have this problem with mock Sherlock Holme's writing where they give him a super-power of observation, and some of the stuff he's deduced are totally unbelievable. I remember at the start of the third one where he's going on about what the's worked out from these trainers he's found ... and I spent the next morning thinking how stupid some of his points were.

... but for all I can fault it for, the series is good entertainment for Sundays, and is much, much better than that awful piece of gob-shite that is the Guy Ritchie movie.

DOOOD, how you guys doing :o

I haven't posted in here in a while, but uhh, yeah, art school I think is close to killing my interest for art. Nothing like a sack-o-C's in a drawing 1 class to demoralize someone away from anything artistic. But from the looks of it they appear to be a school with a very formal way of teaching art, but that may be my teachers, and that I am a freshman learning foundation stuff. But then again at the time I was looking for colleges, I was thinking that graphic design was a form of digital art, but I think they see graphic design in a more classical sense, or that it is more in the formal art spectrum than I thought. Ah well, graphic design doesn't look right for me anywho, might try something like animation next year or something.

Need to make sum moar computer art too, I don't think iv made anything since this summer.

Too bad it isnt really working for you, although itll probably get better. A lot of studies have this deconstruct-reconstruct approach where you have to start at the absolute basics before getting to the good stuff... Graphic design is a very weird artform at the moment I think... the thing is, if a company wants an artistic graphic designer, theyll just hire an artist rather than a graphic designer (at least thats the idea Im getting) which keeps graphic design at a non-artistic level...

from what iv seen it sort of looks like a demented form of modern art and architecture, where it's based around good composition and measuring over anything else. But I think I was looking for more of the storytelling part of art, which fits animation more I think. But graphic design sort of looked like it had animation as part of it, but thats motion graphic design.

My older brother is a graphic designer, and it seems to me that your idea of what "graphic design" is was notably off the mark.
It's not about artistic expression, it's about making things look good. Graphic designers do things like design websites, and plan layouts; hence "design" and not "art". Companies use graphic designers for the very reason to make things look good, not for expressive purposes.
ie: Newgrounds; the layout and color schemes, along with the fonts and textures that make up the site, are all forms of graphic design. Making all that information fit on the front page in an ergonomic, yet aesthetically pleasing manner is graphic design. There isn't much artistry that goes into it, but really good design still takes skill, of course.

I think you may want to do some research and reconsider what you want to major in, since you seem to have been taken by a misunderstanding. Good luck man, and I hope you regain your focus in art.

God, I need to stop using walls of text.

that's the plan for now, but I probably should of caught on that a while ago. Ah well, there is probably a major around that is both computer and artistically bound, or at least requires creativity, so I might check out like interactive media or even some kind of programming or something. But I think I have a better idea of what I want to do.

Posts like these that make me glad that I never really did Art - even as a freshman, was totally getting a bunch of Cs (not due to the art itself, but it's still a buzzkill). Sorry that it's not really working out for yah, and I wish the best of luck to you, but you shouldn't really let it get down on your artistic motivation - learned a king time ago that they mark you on relevance to topic, not quality of art/writing/whatevs.

May I recommend Game Art, it includes mediums such as character art an environmental art, it is what I am currently looking at doing. You may also want to check out about conceptual art for things such as movies/games.
