Drawing with Hopscotch Topic 01 [OFFICIAL]

Welcome to the new and revised Drawing with Hopscotch Topic (DHT)

A few notes before the rules :

What exactly is the correlation between art and programming? For several years, many coders here on the forum have wondered about this crazy, energetic, but (obviously) creative community within a community. Some scratch their heads and ask why these users are even here and how their craft has anything to do with coding or even Hopscotch—other than to draw thousands of pictures on the app. Many of you artists just want to be creative and don’t see how what you do can connect to coding, but you’re thankful that Hopscotch has let you keep your opportunity to share your art.

The Hopscotch Leaders are about to answer this question and bridge the gap between two very diverse, but very essential communities.

Games like Angry Birds, RPGs and even the ubiquitous Mario depend on artists to help map out their visions and flesh out their code. From mockups to maps, backgrounds to sprites, artists play an integral part in helping programmers create a marketable and attractive product. The new drawing topic will help connect Hopscotch coders with the artists who can provide elements which can be used within the games that we all love to create and play on the app.

Rules:

  • All art posted will either be part of a portfolio (see next point) or a direct commission to be used in a published Hopscotch project as a collaborative work.
  • Artists may create one portfolio post per month of their current art styles. The more varied your entries, the more exposure you receive for your talent: backgrounds (landscapes, geometrical/abstract, etc); characters (human, creature, robotic, etc); props (indoor/outdoor, land/air/space, etc.). You may combine elements into one picture if desired but may not post more than 10 pictures total in your portfolio post.
  • Artwork may be in any format the artist prefers: digital or paper, pen/ink or paint. Paper Mario, Lumino City, and Yoshi’s Crafted World are examples of games that use “handmade” art styles, so draw away!
  • To protect the copyrights of posted artwork, all artists are strongly advised to add a clear watermark of their HS or forum username across the body of their submission in portfolio posts. For actual art exchanges, include two copies (one with watermark and one without) to both prove your ownership of your work and also allow a clear, downloadable copy for the commission. Rather than tagging users who may want to see your work, only tag the user(s) who have permission to use your work in their project. Screen print your post or copy the link to your post for your own verification of this agreement in the event that someone uses your artwork without your authorization.
  • A brief bio of 100 words or less may precede your art within the same portfolio post. At a minimum, share your preferred art medium (paper, digital, pixel/trail art) and area of skill (people, animals, landscapes).
  • Collaboration requests for art elements may be posted here. Due to the nature of this forum, no real money will be exchanged. Any user requesting a commission agrees to give credit to the artist for their contribution to the project in which that art will be used. If you are not directly involved in such an agreement, please respect the intellectual property rights and usage of the artwork, the artist and those who commission.
  • Any artwork published here by the original creator and publicly shared outside of the Hopscotch forum or Hopscotch app without permission of said creator will be considered stolen and Hopscotch will not be liable for damages. Likewise, posts of derivative art or references must give attribution to the original from which it was inspired. Copied or uncredited derivative artwork will be removed to protect the intellectual property rights of the original creator.

Other art submissions to the new Drawing Topic.

If you are not involved in drawing art for coding project commissions you may still post art here! How?

  • Any user who creates art using a Hopscotch art pad may also post the links here on the condition that they first post a link to the drawing pad that they personally designed/coded in HS and in which they primarily draw. Hopscotch artists may use drawing pads from other artists for the purposes of constructive criticism or appreciation, so long as they have first posted the link to their own coded drawing pad and submit at least half of their art posts using their own pad. This is designed to encourage coding artists to work on improving their own drawing pads as they test other art pads in circulation.
  • Links to Trail art and Pixel art created on the Hopscotch app, along with any art made with the subscription options.
  • Links to collaborations that need art can be posted here along with links to HS art compets.

Sample Portfolio (compiled by the leaders)


art by Serenity, from spring 2019:

Hi! I’m Serenity, a paper artist who loves fantasy. I’m best at drawing people, and I like my art to be lighthearted with a touch of ethereality. I use micron pens and crayola colored pencils, but I have no problem trying new subjects or mediums. I’m always working to improve!

trail art by William04GamerA, from spring 2019:

I’m William04GamerA, both on the forum and on the Hopscotch app. I am a trail art artist and coder that posts one new project every day. They are mostly trail arts. Here are two of my latest creations that I am very proud of:

I’m FearlessPhoenix. I code a lot on Hopscotch, and make a lot of stuff. Lately though, I’ve been doing a lot of pixel art, and some of them have actually gotten featured. Here are two of them:

New drawing topic, cool!


Wip portfolio

I’m an artist who absolutely despises art classes, knows barely any techniques, and loves to code on Hopscotch.
I prefer drawing on paper using pencils and brush pens, and I also draw digitally.
I’ll take requests for drawings (only about 2 at most each week though), trail art, and shape art.
(Also please don’t save my art, unless it’s a request I drew for you.)

Pixel Art

I drew this one on an app (Sandbox Coloring) and then coded it.

If you want to request a drawing, please choose digital or paper, and choose a style.
If you want to request a pixel art, please choose whether you want it drawn (on an app called Sandbox Coloring), coded, or drawn then coded.
If you want to request a drawing, trail art, shape art, or pixel art, please describe the person/animal/object you’d like made, or post a ref pic.
