Darkest Dungeon Art Contest

When you're toiling away at something in the shadows for a long time and the world forgets you exist, a piece of fan art can totally lift your spirits and keep you going. That's why I'd like to have some regular Fan Art contests to show support for all the busy creators out there!

The subject of this week's Fan Art contest is Darkest Dungeon, currently in Steam Early Access.

Create some fan art, tag it with "DarkestDungeon" and upload it by Friday, March 6th at 12 noon EST to enter!

The six best pieces will be awarded with Darkest Dungeon Steam keys. Already own it? Pass it along to a friend! Grand prize will also receive an art book which will be created when the game is done.

God have mercy on your soul if @deathink enters because this feels right up his alley.

If the results are promising, I'll plan to launch another contest next Friday with a new game and new Steam keys. In general we'll be trying to focus on Steam devs from the NG community when possible. Darkest Dungeon creator Keir Miron was on NG a lot as a kid and submitted a cartoon once... It got blammed. :(

Happy illustrating / painting / whatever you choose to do! ANSI? Awesome!

Don't forget Pico Day is April 25th and you can celebrate NG by making a movie, game, art, song or even podcast!

UPDATE: I totally forgot I'm going to Boston for PAX this weekend so I likely won't wrap up this art contest until early next week. Sorry for already breaking the schedule! If you're at PAX, be sure to come by the Behemoth booth and say hi! I'm also gonna be a surprise addition to the No Indie is an Island panel, Saturday at noon.

I love how you (and the community) come up with something fun and interesting all the time. It keeps the site going, and there's always something cool happening :3

Tom, this is a great idea. I used to run fan art contests when I worked for an mmo and it really keeps the artistic community alive. I'd really love to see these continue... Especially since I'm backed up with work for the next couple of weeks and won't have much time for this one.

Also, one suggestion. Give deathink a separate prize. It's kind of sucky when first prize is taken before anyone even enters anything.

I hope I didn't scare anyone away when I made that comment... Let it stoke the competitive flames in all!

Hey young man, let's drink a cuba libre! okay, cool!

I'm glad that there are now regular art contests, and if I had any artistic talent I would probably enter.

On a different note, I feel that audio producers (musicians and voice actors) are neglected. It'd be nice to have more audio contests. Just a thought that hit me when I read this post.

So if the creator of this game has roots here on newgrounds, should the game not be on the newgrounds curator list? Maybe it was really long time ago since he was here though, if he even has an account left.

With house of cards and all the projects and labs I have to do, you have some time before bringing up ours.

Fantasy isn't really my thing, but I think variety in styles helps you improve. I'm happy to participate!

I'm not a professional artist, but with a few sticks, gum & a bit of magic, I could crank something out for this lovely art contest! Thanks for the info! Have a tremendously terrific day, the tom way & to everyone else! :-)

Darkest Dungeon, huh? If you had put this game into a genre, which one would fit best?
