Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 218 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

I spent a few hours on this, trying out different stuff to emulate the light pollution around New York City.

Did the power go out in the city? More whites/yellows for the building windows. Also, I'm sure the bridge has more lights on it as well. And it's difficult, but you'll want to also make sure that said building and bridge lights are reflected (not necessarily perfectly) somewhere in the water. You could get away with leaving out one or the other, showing more perspective/viewing angle by doing so Still an amazing piece, though.

You're right. I could've spent more time adding more lights and adding a reflection in the water. The blue and white lines represent the lighting in the buildings. This was my first time attempting night time backgrounds and I'll do more in the future.

nice! Gotta love the NYC!

Grub-Xer0 responds:

Best city in the world!
