Art Round-up Dec 8, 2021

Well, for those not following updates on other platforms, the snag in the recent momentum of uploads is due to Mr. Terzich’s recent move and one missing power adapter for his scanner. If you did not know, all the pages start out traditionally. But thankfully, you do get content on this day with a spotlight on another artist. Recently, one of Mr. Terzich’s buddies he’s made through the Newgrounds Festivals discord server, Pam [Newgrounds/Twitter], was kind enough to whip up a lovely picture of our mascot, Zeba, for his life ceremony just last week.

But this isn’t the only picture she’s made related to Ex Dynamis Chaos. They mostly never leave chatrooms and get uploaded anywhere properly (until now), but Pam often sketches up fun images for her friends that she hangouts out with. We have two other sketches that she has dropped on Mr. Terzich within recent times. The first of which was a redraw of an official nekomimi (a catgirl like Purrcy) image for the TCG that’s been indefinitely on the backburner.

The second is a fun picture of The Metal slurping up ramen like a pro because that is apparently all the man eats (meet the guy and you’ll probably come to the same conclusion).

Pam is a fun and talented artist who aspires to make comics of her own someday, so follow her profiles and see what else is in store.

Art Round-up Sep 14, 2021

Still chugging a little slow this year, but new stuff is actually being produced as we speak, including a couple shorts that were supposed to be on this site last year. But in the meantime, today’s Art Round-up is spotlight on the artist Kiyo [kiyooo on Newgrounds/KiyoInHell on Twitter]. She is a wonderful artist, in both respects of illustration and animation, that doesn’t post nearly enough. While hanging out in the Newgrounds Festivals discord server, she decided to doodle the mascot of this fine publication, Zeba, in various poses and expression as well as adding The Metal in there for good measure. She refers to this as a “Family Portrait” after putting the character’s creator over arching at the top.

On top of this, she also threw Zeba into the background of a recent animation for round 4 of the Newgrounds Animation Summer Jams as a little plushie with a camera that you can see here in Charlie’s Little Dance.

And here is just the a snapshot of how Zeba appears in the video for those that didn’t watch it. I think Kiyo really captured the essence of Zeba there, don’t you?

But that’s not all I’m talking about involving Kiyo in today’s post. I ended up liking her doodles so much that I took her pencils and turned them into fully colored scenes. So, enjoy the my interpretations of the images below to close things out.
