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 April we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 62 people to reach our goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in May!

NGADM '19 ~ Staying With You


Second-place poster for @LucidShadowDreamer, also drawn on a combination of MS PowerPoint and Autodesk Sketchbook. Incidentally, this was the first one for which I finished the lineart. His piano piece, Staying With You, is a feat of consummate musicianship on the piano. He mentioned in the description that it got this title because, in his own words:

"...it's not the goal itself that stays with us when we look back at our achievements. Rather, it's the journey there, and the people we meet along the way that we remember."

With that in mind, I drew him with a fair few people who embarked on this journey with him in many different ways. They're not perfect representations by any stretch -- where there were photo references, I did my best to stay true to them, though I may have failed miserably -- but it was my intention to also include @etherealwinds, @Syamori, @CloakedSoup and @vocaloutburst in this poster, as a means of representing the people taking that same journey, sharing a moment together. Some are tangibly present, others are present in spirit, and all would happily share that moment at play together. Link to the piece below:

He and others are aware that I feel rather insecure about this poster in particular, but I did my best to capture this moment.
