Musicians: The Art Inspired Music Contest just launched today! The theme is to create music inspired by art here on Newgrounds, it’s a great way to celebrate fellow artists and cross-pollinate between the Art and Music Portal crowds!
Epic Battle Fantasy Art and Music Contest

Art Portal Updates
We made some big changes to the Art Portal hub this week! It’s now utilizing larger thumbnails and we’ve removed the left column category list, instead moving those to a dropdown. Registered users default to seeing the latest art, while unregistered users default to featured art. We plan to add a tab for your personal art feed but want to get ratings filters working with feed data first.
You can now toggle between scouted and undiscovered artists, or view All Artists combined for the first time ever.
For people who preferred pagination vs endless scroll - the pagination system was a huge bottleneck that made it difficult for us to integrate advanced filtering options. There was already a complicated system in place to filter results by content rating without killing the servers; we’re happy to be moving away from that.
The next update will be the ability to browse with custom date ranges and other updates will include blocked user and blocked tag filtering. We’ll be bringing all this over to Animation, Games and Audio once we’re happy with how it’s working.
