NG Art Competition - CASH PRIZES 2019-01-30 06:46:54


Fan of RPGs? Ready to earn some money by putting your art skills to the test? Then do I have the competition for you. This might be a particularly good opportunity now with such a massive influx of artists seeking refuge from the Tumblapocalypse.


If you’ve been around Newgrounds for a while you might know me from a few of my old games that have done well (JUGGERNAUT, Ender Story, etc). I’ve now got a game that has just released today on Steam, Tale of Enki: Pilgrimage! It’s a fantasy RPG taking elements from Western games like Baldur’s Gate and the Elder Scrolls, as well as Eastern games like Dragon Quest and Zelda. To celebrate the release, I’m hosting an art contest with CASH PRIZES!


The prizes are as follows:

  • 1st place: $100
  • 2nd place: $60
  • 3rd place: $30
  • 4th place: $20
  • 5th place: $10
  • Runners Up: Free Steam codes for Tale of Enki: Pilgrimage.


To enter you simply need to draw a character, race, scene or basically anything related to Tale of Enki that you desire. Go wild! I encourage you to buy the game here to get some ideas, but I've done numerous posts about it and there are Let's Plays on YouTube for reference. Upload your piece to the art portal and make sure to tag it with "taleofenki" (without the quotation marks) so we can find it to judge.


The deadline for the competition is the 28th of February 2019. Any submissions, no matter how high quality they may, will be accepted after that date just to be fair to the other contestants. I’ll be checking my PMs here, on Twitter, my emails and this thread so if you’ve got any questions then just let me know one way or another and I’ll get back to you ASAP.


Happy drawing, folks! I can’t wait to see what everybody can come up with.

Thanks for the support! I spoke to him about this last month and he was very supportive. He said he's going to plug it in a news post pin it to the calendar. One of the many reasons I love this community so much. The head guy actually cares.

Okay, so I can't edit the main post anymore by the looks of things, but i wanted to address a few additional points just in case it helps people.


  • You can submit more than one entry, but you'll only be eligible for one prize.
  • You can submit as many entries as you like and the one we deem best will be the one considered for a prize.
  • NSFW are permitted.


If anybody has additional questions that I haven't answered, just let me know.

I hope things will get interesting to see some talented Ng and tumblr refugee users post their entry. I'm eager to see some awesome fan arts of this game soon!

I really hope this is a good event for the newly expanded community. I think it's the first big art contest since all the Tumblr business went down? I know there's been Pixel Day, but that wasn't solely dedicated to art.

Just been pointed out to me that I said submissions after the deadline will be accepted. That was meant to be "will not" rather than "will". My bad!

Solid! I've actually been looking for a new RPG to sink into so I'm excited to give this a look when I get the chance.

Nice! I just saw both of your pieces when I was doing my daily check up. Drusilla looks like she's proving especially popular to draw.

Sketches are also welcome if you're short on time!
