musicians & artists: win $50 (and more)

Posted by rtil - September 23rd, 2009

MUSICIANS: If you enter and win my Lighthouse Music Contest, I am now adding a $50 cash prize. I'd feel bad not offering any money for your hard work so I had to add it. This applies to all of you who have already submitted as well! But if you haven't, I'd love to hear what you have to offer.

ARTISTS: This month's TBA Art Tournament theme is Heroes & Villains. Round 1 is heroes, round 2 is villains, and the final round is hero vs villain. Each round there is a vote, and the top half most voted artists advance to the next round.

The cash prize is a pot that anyone can put money into, and it has already reached $44! If no one else adds anything I will even it out to $50. This could be a great opportunity for you to practice art - and get your money's worth in the end! Every month we have a contest and the prize starts at $10. The more people involved, the bigger the stakes. Hope to see you there!

NOTICE: we have chosen a winner and are no longer receiving submissions. winner will be announced soon.

Looks like japanimation inspired you for the filters.

we're going for a traditional cel look, so each cel will have some softening on it.

I'm really eager to see your new project when you get it all done, looks a little bit like a fantasy world like Nemo, which is a great thing.

I know you're probably not a fan of people drooling like idiots over your work, without contributing anything meaningful to your post, but every time I see more artwork from lighthouse girl, I feel more and more awed by it. I hope you don't mind my mindless drooling.

You guys seem to be creating something with amazing ambition and scope, similar (in a sense) to a cartoon by Miyazaki done in flash, and since both of you have the talent to actually pull it off, I'm REALLY looking forward to it.

Shame I don't have any art skills whatsoever, or I'd give the contest a go.

thank you

music & literature is also accepted for the contests



How can I contribute to your art contest pot?

send money to tournament(at)thebackalleys.com

aww you do have a soft spot dont you?


i just punched my dog (whose name is somthing like "duke") in the ribs.


Damn your really good.

I may do the art thing if I have time.

Looks reminiscent of a ghibli flick. Very traditional feel. Looking forward to it!

You wear them shades like a pro, boy.

Wow Lighthouse girl looks awesome, looking forward to that one man :)

I'll hopefully have something in your E-Mail soon. Money isn't much of a priority though it is nice :D. Looking at those 3 screenshots I think just having it under my resume would be amazing. I can only hope though.

i look forward to it


i love that drawing

anyone who can make a song good enough to match this is deserving of the 50

wow ! you rul3z !

Hello, it's me ! I promised to do some music demos, so here they are :

<a href="http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/274886">http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/274886</a> (this one is inspired by the Skies of Arcadia piece you linked to in your other post)

<a href="http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/274887">http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/274887</a> (more suspense in this one)

i would have preferred you followed the instructions of the contest, but thank you for your submission. :)

add this contest to ng forums, then i'll join :D


Woops, my bad. Let me do it the right way, then.

thank you
it's just a lot easier for me to keep track of submissions that way
