newgrounds calendar entry


Author Comments

:posted the notes from the submition thread:

so here's my entry. i snuck in some NG classics but primarily its two warriors bashing each other atop a mountain of stuff. they each represent the good and evil around newgrounds, the struggle and accomplishments as well as the constant chaotic creations!

no particular month for this one ;D

the dude on the left represents hard work, solid code, and dedication to morals and mutual respect for the entire community. the nasty dude on the right with the octo-cloak and dual blades is all the strife that goes on in newgrounds; the resentment of fellow artists, the wrongfully blammed, the trolling.

but they are both important to making the community super awesome. that's why they are creating an explosion of awesome atop a pile of awesome things! we got loot, skulls, angry face, ribs, squid, and the newgrounds moniker!

hope you guys dig it!



so u think your entry will beat mine? the game is on! :D

haha hey! i never said i could beat anything! :D

thanks for the ten pal, and i believe that the game is indeed on!


Dayum. . .

I've never written anything on your art, because I'm pretty lazy sometimes when it comes to reviews, but your art is amazing.

You've got a very unique style, much different than many other artists (which is a good thing). This is a wonderful piece and is a very good idea. . . And let me say something. . . . . You're gunna get a spot in the calendar, NO ONE could turn this down :3

Anyway. . . Amazing work and that goes for everything you've done ;)

jouste responds:

wow thanks pal!

wicked words! and it's much appreciated that you reviewed my piece. i know how busy it gets. and to take the time to jot down what you think of my stuff is really great of you.

thanks for the vote of confidence! and for the comments on my style dude.



I like this, lots of detail, color and a great center of the fierce encounter. More debris might make it even better, but it looks great as it is, the white lines give the clash of swords a nice feeling of power, characters are creatively concieved, the NG logo is easy to notice, and I like the mild brown/orange colorscheme, looks good and is easy on the eyes too. Keep it going!

jouste responds:

those are really good points man.

i actually had alot of debris in there before and took some out. i hope there's enough newgrounds stuff in there. i basically created both these guys for newgrounds anyways. like they are all theirs to have, i have no intention of keeping them for myself ;D

thanks for the great points and high scores!

well done

nice pic and it has a good meaning aswell

jouste responds:

thanks pal!

i found that a lot of the traditional newgrounds stuff was being handled really well by other artists in the contest so i tried to push some symbols.

thanks for the high score!

This is great!

Nicely done, i like the style aswell.

jouste responds:

hey thanks dude!

glad you like the style. it was a lot of fun to do.
