Fanart: Annabelle

Hi Folks!

The beautiful heatwave of Easter weekend has left us, and we’ve come back to work after a big crunch on the garden and lots of relaxing in the sunshine. We’re on the homestretch and it looks like we’ll finish all the garden work we wanted to in good time for summer. Hope you’ve all had a relaxing (and long) weekend as well!

Here’s some more fanart from Lynore, this time featuring Annabelle.


EBF5: Foe Competition Runner-Ups

Hey guys, here’s 4 foes that I strongly considered using in EBF5.
They don’t win anything, but I’d like to share them with ya’ll, since they’re pretty cool.

The main issue with these is that I just couldn’t imagine them being as interesting to fight as the other foes I picked. Some really unique attack sprites could have helped.

My main consideration when picking winners was “Do I really want to animate this?”, and usually that means the design has to feel really fresh, and be something that I wish I had thought of. I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for until I see it, I suppose.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a lot of fun with their pixel art, and thanks for participating. I’ll probably keep playing around with the retro style in future.

EBF5: Mermaid and Totom

Hey guys, here’s the last 2 enemies from the EBF5 foe competition!
The competition is now over, and I’ll do a little post to feature the runner-ups later.

Anyway, here’s Mermaid by Lester Vine, and Totom by Jay again.

Please throw some suggestions for a name for the mermaid, as she’ll likely have a few lines to speak. Here’s a list of possible names. I’m leaning towards Coralia or Melody.

Epic Battle Fantasy Art and Music Contest

Hey guys, me and Tom Fulp from have teamed up to do a fanart and music remix competition!
Here’s Tom’s post about it:

May 1st is the 10 Year Anniversary of Epic Battle Fantasy on Newgrounds and Epic Battle Fantasy 5 recently released on Steam. To celebrate the occasion, we’re hosting a fan art and music remix contest here on NG!

To participate in the art contest, create Epic Battle Fantasy fan art, tag it with “Epic-Battle-Fantasy” and upload it to the Newgrounds Art Portal by May 1st.

To participate in the music contest, remix any of the songs from the Epic Battle Fantasy series 2-5 (when Phyrnna was making the music), tag it “Epic-Battle-Fantasy” and upload it to the Audio Portal by May 1st.

Entries will be judged by Matt, Phyrnna, Ronja, and the NG office.

The ten best fan arts and three best music remixes will receive Steam keys (Windows only) for EBF5, EBF4, Bullet Heaven 2 and the EBF5 soundtrack.

Tom doesn’t mention it in his post, but generally in contests like this you have to make art/music specifically for the contest – otherwise we’d have hundreds of submissions from earlier! So please don’t enter anything made before today!

You can read the original post here.

Also, you should post your work on Newgrounds anyway – it’s a cool site and I want it to make a comeback!
