Since I don't live in Amerika and don't own an xbawks I dunno how to draw guns.


The gun on his back is his main weapon btw, not the gunblade.

Hay broheems.

Having a competition type thing where you guys can design foes and I'll put them into ma next game!
It's more aimed at DeviantArt users but I thought Newgrounds might be interested too.


They must be original, for example, not recolored Sonic or Pokemon.

Don't mind if it's drawn traditionally or digitally.
I'll need at least one colored picture though.

It's gotta be RPG-ish. Whatever that means.

They must be work-safe. It can't be a giant penis.

Should not be human.
It must not be a furry either. Preferably not very human-like at all.

They must be easy to motion tween.

Think of some attacks and properties for em, they've gotta be unique and interesting, of course I can always fix that myself once the game develops.

Possibly think of several varieties so I can recycle the animations for several foes. For example an ice version and a fire version.


Over a million people will see your foe.
Ye'll also get a brief mention in the gallery, maybe even the credits. Dunno if I'll be able to link to your site because the Sponsor may not like too many links.
Even if I don't decide to use the foe I may still include yer drawing in the gallery.
Though if I get a lot of entries I'll have to prune some.
You also win my everlasting love for entering.

If ya have a DeviantArt account you should upload it there, but anywhere will do.

Some entries so far:

Go play my games for more examples of stuff.

You have half a year to enter.

In before someone points out that spears and axes are not held the same way as swords.

tl;dr: draw foes for me

I heard Flash CS5 beta's coming out soon-ish.
Feeling really out dated now, still using Flash 8.

Still don't see much reasons to upgrade to CS4 though.
The bone tool turned out to be pretty useless and the GUI is completely messed up.
Not too keen on starting AS3 since I'm still getting comfortable with AS2, not to mention I'm already learning Java, C and SQL in school.
I've also heard it's a bit glitchy, though I didn't use it long enough to know.
Seems to also use a lot more system resources, not really something I want when working on massive projects.

End rant.

Been playing Scribblenauts, Dodonpachi, Raiden 3, Metal Slug 3 and Touhou 8 lately.

Scrapped my platformer.
Started drawing equips for Epic3.
There'll be around 30 equips for each character.
And ye can upgrade em and stuff.
... Maybe.
ETA: Summer 2010

The internet says that sticking fridge magnets on your PC is safe, so it must be true.

Yo mods, my artwork is still missing!
If I don't get it back I'll cry :(

Anyhow, I've been messing around with platformer stuff, and will probably make a crappy game out of it eventually.

Workin on a pic for the NG calendar contest.

Realized I don't have to go to freshers week so that's my holiday extended.
I guess University students have a lot of free time eh. \(o_0)/

Off to play more Metal Slug.

Test my stupid game!:

Tired of workin on it so wanna get it debugged and posted before Power of Three.
It's taking way longer than I had hoped, considering half the stuff is recycled.
