We’ve got another event coming up on the Newgrounds site! Make some original art based on Pit People and upload on Newgrounds by 11:59PM EST on Wednesday, March 28th, for a chance to win a code for Pit People. (Note – original deadline was March 18th but it was extended after requests for more time.)

Tag your entry with “pitpeople” and feel welcome to link to it in this thread as well. If you aren’t a scouted artist on NG, they’ll still find your entry!

Entries will be judged by Pit People artist @DanPaladin, with the top ten being gifted Pit People Steam keys.

Already own it? Gift a copy to a friend! You can use this thread to discuss Pit People fan art and share your works in progress!

If you didn’t get a chance to make it to these events, you can always check out our Discord server to chat with other community members and our staff when we’re around (which is pretty much every weekday). Come chat about games and share your fan art!

2018 Fan Art Contest Winners

We had over 100 entries this year for our Valentine’s Day Fan Art Contest! Thank you so much to everyone who put in so much love into each of their creations. Needless to say, it was difficult for our judges to narrow down their favorite picks since there were so many amazing artists. Out of all the entries, the following submissions made it to our Top 3. These artists captured the theme “love & friendship” and showed originality, creativity, effort and artistic abilities.

“Hope” by Gennadiy L.

“Smile! It’s for The Behemoth’s Valentine’s Day gallery! Done in coloured pencil and black/white pens on drawing paper, with bits and pieces from the four games. Mind the uvula!” – Drawing S.

“Sometimes it’s for the better that love is blind.” -Stephanie C.

Audience Award Winner

We also had a voting period where anyone could vote for their favorite fan art entries. The entry with the highest number of votes gets the Audience Award. With over 150 votes, the Audience Award goes to Jason F. and his Alien Hominid themed Valentine’s Day card!

“My Day 3 entry for the @thebehemothgames fan art competition. Have had much fun creating these 3 Behemoth Valentines day style cards. Certainly a little aomething different for me :D” – neuroticdesign

All four of these contestants will be getting a prize pack with a game code, a pink knight keychain, and their choice of a Pit People Rainbow Horse plush or Cupcake plush.

Thanks again to all the contestants and we hope to do this again next year! Til then, keep checking out our social channels (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) for Fan Art Fridays <3
