Pico Day Winners & Picollage Print 2015-05-04 15:50:22
April 25th was Pico Day, a celebration of Newgrounds the characters that spawn from it. We had our biggest office party EVER, probably the coolest gathering of people from any website EVER in history. It was a real moment to reflect on all NG has been through these past 20 years and to get excited for the future ahead.
Right now though we gotta announce the winners!

'20 years of creatures!'by ButzboHappy Pico (Newgrounds) DAY! Here's some sort of commemorative/poster/gif/thing for all of your eyeballs (all of them!). I decided to take the challenge of animating the run/roll/bounce-cycle of 20 characters from Newgrounds! Some of the selections are the most expected/essential ones, though a bit of them come from a personal standpoint/NG experience :) FEATURING: Row 1-Steve; one of the TANKMEN of the year 20XX; C**K J**E! - Pico, Nene, Darnell, the originals from one of Newgrounds seminal games: PICO'S SCHOOL; it's amazing how these characters keep evolving every year through the community's perspective! 2-Alien Hominid!; please let's not forget one of the (first...or...the FIRST!) titles to ever jump from a web (flash) version to an actual console! -"Me(?)" (from Dad n' me) such a cool character to interpretate. -Steven from the mind-twisting Time Fcuk. -Cuboy, the ultimate hero! 3- BBQBeefBurgerman; an overlooked example of classic web comedy. - Madness man; - Strawberry Clock; King of the Portal! BBBBB - Angry Face; a brilliant design. 4 -Salad Fingers; this man is important. -Bitey of Brackenwood. - P-BOT; a guardian from the original Flash Portal era. - DAD; (another dad) and the most caffeinated of all. 5-Peace Tank, a Flash classic. -Pig-pen. -Jerry Jackson; a strange lifeform with plenty of things to teach us through his car22ns... Maybe... Probably not. -Wait, here's a little cameo! ENJOY.
NG-20 | Pico Day 2015by PepVerbsNounsThis took a lot of work. It's less a picture about Pico himself, and more of a small tribute to both Newgrounds, and some of my favorite artists/creators that the site helped launch into popularity. For this reason, I've decided to not have Pico and the gang armed to the teeth, but rather have each of them represent their respective portals on the site. In fact, I used the voting icons for the portals as style references for the characters. Also, yes. I now realize that Pico doesn't wear a hoodie. It's not perfect, but it's the best I can do. (For now.) ------- Flash 8 : Line art, base coloring/lighting/shading. Paint Tool SAI : Soft lighting/shading, texture detail. --------------------------------------- EDIT: Frontpaged!! I am insanely grateful for this, thank you!
Halfway to Pico Dayby MateusAbrantesEdit: WHAT?! My submission set as the main background on the Big Day? ❤ - My final submission for Pico Day 2015 / Newgrounds 20th anniversary. More than that, this is my “thank you very much” to this awesome community for keeping me inspired every day. Seriously, I would never spend so many hours in a single frame if I didn’t love Newgrounds as much as I do. About this piece, the basic idea was making a bunch of characters heading to NG Headquarters, where Tom, Pico, Larry, Edd, Leo, Satan, (and any other name you wish to include here that hasn’t been featured in the final artwork) are supposed to be waiting. Fun fact: I don’t know the name of that little astronaut on the right corner, neither where he’s from. When I was looking for references, I found him in a calendar made by @yellowbouncyball and decided to include him because… he was easy to model. Anyways, hope you guys like it. And long live to Newgrounds! - Softwares: Cinema 4D (modeling) & Photoshop (filters) Overall time: 65 hours (probably more)
StudioPEP made something cool enough to become the intro graphic. M-Abrantes made something cool enough to become the site skin. ButzboPrud made something that was just downright cool and fun to stare at for a long time. The emotional response ultimately gave it the edge.
Top Three Music ($200, $150, $100)
