Just a digital artist trying to find her place! I've been searching for a new site to house my art and join the community. I specialize in character design, illustration, and 3D modeling.

Castle Crashers 2010 Fanart | Newbie to Newgrounds!

Posted by abigaia - December 6th, 2018

Hello, Newgrounds!

I have heard tell of this website since I was, like, 10 years old, and never ever touched it before. Now that I'm in need of a new site for art sharing and art community, I thought I'd try NG out now!

First thing that caught my eye was TOM FULP?! Holy MOLY how did I never know that this guy was heavily involved in Newgrounds?? (and now I'm seeing the Castle Crasher and Alien Hominid in the background, waaat!!) 

I played Castle Crashers when I was about 12 and it has remained one of my favorite games of all time.

Well, uh, I guess.. what better way to kick off my start here by sharing my old Castle Crashers FANART xD?

DISCLAIMER: I drew this on an iPad first gen when I was 14, in 2010!

"Rage Mode Inbound"

Then I drew the same picture with pencil on paper the following year! (because I was NOT into digital back then???)

"Rage Mode Inbound v2"


Anyway, that's my first "news post" !

If anyone comes across this and has any tips for getting involved in the art community here, I'd love to hear it! <3

Thanks for looking!

@Tom you might enjoy this. :)

Fun work there, and the paper one's so smooth you could think it was a WIP of the other. Should def upload it to the art portal too for all to appreciate. Welcome to the grounds!

Thank you so much for your comment!! :D I really appreciate it! (omg Tom is an idol!)

I am definitely here for the art community, but I'm not sure how to upload anything to the art portal? I did not even know there was one!

Sure thing. :) Ah about art, you can upload them via that button in the top bar: https://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/8292ee0ad98c433983e3a74b589fd254

...or on pages with the old layout the 'Upload your creations!' button. Guess you might want to know about scouting too: https://ornery.newgrounds.com/news/post/388624

Oh, right! It just doesn't have the word "portal" on it anymore. :P Thanks!

I appreciate the scouting guide! A friend mentioned that to me when I told him I'd be joining NG for the art, so that link is very helpful. And I read through the intro guide too - there's quite a bit more to do here than I thought! :o

Very cool. Thanks so much for the humble welcoming!

Feel free to ask away if you're wondering about anything else! There's a pretty good intro guide here too: https://solitonmedic.newgrounds.com/news/post/1028767

Exactly. :) Come to think of it I'm not sure it ever did... though it's often called the Art Portal anyway, as the original Portal was called Portal. Same with the Audio Portal.

Good to hear. As for the intro: that barely scratches the surface you know. ;) Happy exploring!
