2012 Calendar & Animate: Epic Fall Sep. 14th, 2011 @ 12:19 PM Reply

We are having an art contest to fill each month of the 2012 Newgrounds Calendar!

Visit the thread above for more info and requirements. Deadline for submissions: MONDAY, OCTOBER 3rd.

This is a print calendar that will be sold in the store. There are still some 2011 calendars left if you want one!

Moving along, a lot of people enjoyed the "Animate a Clown Dying" mini-contest and want to see MORE of that, so here's another!

Since it's the beginning of Fall (Autumn for you in the UK), the theme is "Epic Fall" - so really you're gonna animate someone falling. But it has to be the greatest fall ever and demonstrate some awesome frame-by-frame animating skills.

Submission Process: Post your movie in dump or submit it to the Portal if it feels complete. Post a link right here in this thread. If it's a Portal submission you can just paste the URL on its own line and it will convert into a fancy link with a visual icon.

Deadline: September 30th at noon EST. We'll watch the entries on our Friday broadcast and pick a winner!

Prize: A mystery box that includes crap JohnnyUtah brought back from a trip to Korea, including a mini-poster with a Korean guy who looks just like The-Swain.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I'm writing theBoogley about his contest ... now ... lol. Awesome, Tom.

And great to hear Epic is okay-ish.

Also, I always though The-Swain looked like a Korean, so ... no surprise there. :P

Glad to see some more mini-competitions. I'll see if I can think up anything worthy.

Me three.

Likewise.

Maybe we should animate Luke getting hit by the van, living without a scratch on him, small and walk off a cliff by accident.

Topical, you say?

And that's what Swain looks like if anyone's wondering.

I can't animate so.. whatever to that. I do enjoy these contests though. Also, I'm pretty excited for the new calendar, even though I can never remember to turn my current calendar, the 2011 NG calendar, of course, to the next month.
