SpriteDraw & Knightin' Art Contests 2019-07-26 16:35:16
Knightin’+ Art Contest
Sprite Draw Art Contest
We think this is a great concept and to encourage more people to give it a try, we’re hosting a Sprite Draw Contest! Simply generate some sprites, draw what you see and upload the result to the Art Portal in a similar format to the examples, showing a before and after.
Tag your entry with SpriteDraw and upload by August 11th at 11:59pm EST to be considered for the contest. Our three favorites will each receive $20; a small prize but hopefully some added incentive to make something!
We’ve just deployed a Supporter-only test phase of our new system for sharing what software and hardware you used to make individual entries here on NG.
If you’re a Supporter and visit one of your movie, game or audio entries, you’ll see an “Edit Equipment” prompt under the tags. Clicking this will open a window where you enter the software and hardware you used. Our system will make suggestions based on what is on file and we’ll be building out that database based on your entries.
You’ll also see an option to save your list as a template, so you can apply the template to other entries rather than manually enter everything each time. Let us know what you think!
This feature will become available to everyone else with the release of the new Project System and Art will be integrated after launch. This will also be the moment when Art gets co-authoring.
This week we made some big under-the-hood updates to NG. Besides a performance increase, these updates bring us closer to the chunking uploader we intend to include in the new Project System. This will make the upload process more robust, so a four gig video file upload can get interrupted and resume where it left off without a hitch.
As always, your Support helps us keep hitting these goals so THANK YOU.
