Gato Robot Fan Art Contest


To celebrate the release of Gato Roboto on Steam and Switch, we’re hosting a Gato Roboto Fan Art contest!


In Gato Roboto you play as a cat with an armored mech suit, on a mission to save your stranded captain and his crashed spaceship. It was worked on by @Miroko and @josephbourgeois, who met here on NG!


To participate in this contest, simply create some Gato Roboto themed fan art (or share some you already made), upload it to the Art Portal and tag it with gato-roboto. Miroko and Joseph will be picking ten of their favorites, to be gifted Gato Roboto Steam keys!


The deadline for this contest is Sunday, June 16th at 11:59pm EST.

Tales of Alethrion


If you’re looking for other themes to create art around, we would love to feature some Tales of Alethrion fan art! If you make some, be sure to tag it with tales-of-alethrion.


Seven days remain to Kickstart Season Two of Tales of Alethrion and I think it’s important this project gets funded. Go have a look!


Other Art and Music Stuff


In addition to the above, we’ve also been enjoying a lot of Death Stranding art, if you’ve made any you’d like to share.


When it comes to featuring art on the front page, here are some things I personally like to feature:


Cool original works like and Cassette Girl, The Void, Patrol and acty.


Indie game fan art like Hollow Knight and Hotline Miami or actual art from games by the original artist, like these Katana Zero animations.


Weird and creepy stuff like Jon…, Tower of Fred and Dead Astronaut.


Fan art of characters here on NG, such as Starbarians and Mao Mao. You can get SUPER OBSCURE with this and it will be even more appreciated. Be sure to link to the content in your author commentary!


City skylines and buildings such as Highway City, Shibuya Train Station and Highway.


Pixel art like Early Summer and Unnamed Game. We have an annual Pixel Day on January 23rd but pixel art is extremely welcome year-round.


Film / anime / game pop culture such as Aboard the Nostromo, Spirited Away No Face, King K Rool and Metal Slug.


I’m a big sucker for obscure game characters in general. If you’re making art about something a lot of people don’t know about, consider giving everyone some history in the author commentary! It’s fun to learn more about what other people like around here. We can entertain each other while also teaching each other.


If your art doesn’t fit any of these descriptions, don’t let that discourage you! We love all sorts of art around here but I wanted to put this list out there to help anyone who might be wondering.


On the topic of letting people know what we like to see, here’s one of my regular reminders that we can’t host content that contains unlicensed commercial music and have compiled a list of royalty-free music resources to help you on your journey. Unlicensed music not only creates huge legal headaches for NG, it also goes against the independent spirit around here where you can talk to the people who make the things you enjoy.


The Audio Portal is a great place to find independent musicians who would often be thrilled to hear their music in your games and animation! Check their Creative Commons / licensing terms listed on each page and be sure to credit any music you use.


Also listen to my May Playlist of songs I enjoyed this month! Yesterday I caught @PhantomArcade dancing in front of the office and he was listening to something on NG, I wonder what it was?


Important Things to Also Read


If you missed it Wednesday, I made a post highlighting a lot of cool events and goings on around the site. A big one to check out is the Wick Game Jam and today the Mixed Perspectives Writing Contest was announced in the Writing Forum.


I’m also making a point to remind everyone to become NG supporters! It’s just $3 per month or $25 for the year and comes with a lot of perks. If you don’t like seeing ads, become a supporter and they’ll go away! If enough people become supporters, we eventually won’t need ads at all, which would make a better impression on both newcomers and regulars. We can’t get there without a lot of help; please consider joining up if you have the means!


We increased the capacity on our Elastic cluster this week, which powers search and art browsing. The big ongoing project is literally the Project System used for publishing content here on NG. There are a ton of moving parts in this one, we hope you like how it all turns out!

Just played Gato Roboto. Looks cool. Hope the sequel is in development

Response to Gato Roboto Art Contest! 2019-05-31 15:39:33


Robots be taking over! Looks awesome though. Banner style had me thinking it might be a bit like Minit but it was more like... something totally different. Pretty cool how all the best platformers out there seem to have ties to this place. Looking forward to seeing some of that artistry.


And all that other stuff: there's too much stuff! Gotta catch up...


Hyped to see how the new Project System turns out too.

Looks like my re-edit was one of them? :/ Can confirm at least that one shouldn't have been taken down. I did give permission, and my work's all released under a CC license that allows modification with credit anyway.


Can't vouch for the rest of course, but seems like maybe some got dragged along that shouldn't have.


Hope you get them back Redeyes.

I think I know that dude. P


Sounds like that Google one might've been the problem though. Better avoid stuff like that. I assume someone saw that and assumed the rest were the same.


Mistakes happen though! Hopefully someone can fix this. You can always reach out to one of these guys if staff are busy: https://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/help-information/site-moderation

Alright, I should probably work my drawing skills to make some fanart of Sanguine's awesome protagonist: Eleanor.

If you guys don't know about Sanguine 2, it's an awesome flash game that's on NG.

Here's the link to the game: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/682128


ps: I'm just doing that because I think this game deserves much more attention.

Tales of Alethrion has really blown me away. I havn't seen something of this high quality for a while since the yuyu. But blown away in a different way, the story is what makes it. Takes me back to my childhood days of watching cartoons.

Just wondering, what will the winner get? Or is this a contest, on artists imagination/ will power test? You know to see if they 'Still got it?'

Either way I'm in, don't matter to me much.

Can confirm it was more than just red eyes. But it doesn't really matter how extensive the modification was, or wasn't, if the work you modified was released under a license that allowed it, right? Then it should be OK. As far as I know there's no clause on either license nor submission guidelines with limitations in this regard. Correct me if I'm wrong.


you know i put work on others drawings to show i cared for them please go explain to those dumb fucks


Might not help with that kind of wording y'know. ;) But sure, I can reach out if I know who to reach out to. Would be nice to get the legit ones back.
