Another year. Another Sketch Collab.

After 7 years of sketches, it's time to push the boundaries a bit further with another year. Welcome to the official Sketch Collab 2014 forum! We're looking for talented artists like yourself to join into making this year's Collab a reality.

Just like every year, your objective is to create a short animation showing what it would look like if the doodles on your page started moving. It should look like it was done with pencil, so grey rather than black is encouraged.

RULES:
1. No porn or sexual content.
2. Obey the specifications given.
3. You can use your own sounds, but music will be included, so don't make sound vital.
4. No sprites.
5. Sticks are allowed.
6. Must be frame by frame - some tweening can be done, but keep it to a minimum.
7. Don't make rubbish parts.
8. Stay active in this thread, post every few days or so at least.
9. Please tell us if you're dropping out, don't just disappear.
10. If you do not obey the specs and you make a part, you must create a new one no questions asked.
11. Make it compatible with Flash 8.
12. Use as fewer layers as you possibly can.
13. You must include a signature at the bottom right of your part

SPECS:
Stage: Standard, 854x480
Background: White (see below)
FPS: 24
Time: 5-20 seconds
Deadline: September 1st

BACKGROUND:
The background can be downloaded here. Use it at the bottom layer of your animation.

PARTS:
I'm drawing the limit at 18. If we receive more than 18 good parts, then we'll set easter eggs with them.

Also, check out previous years. :)

2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013

You could say it's Newgrounds's longest running collab. ;)

Fixed a few things that were bugging me in that first part. Also I think I've got a solid storyboard for my part. What do you all think?

Will get to animating it over time.

Ah ok. I'll participate for this year's collab. As soon as I'm done with 'Recap', I'll start working on my part.

Whoops, used a completely different emoticon than I intended.

Also, are we intending to do anything with the preloader like putting our own sketches in it like last year's?

Yes, although not now. I'd like everybody to be done with their parts before we start doing the extras, just to have everyone in one place.

So let me know what you think :)

I like it! Here are some suggestions to make it have a bit more depth.

I'd recommend having the Tank-Man press a button on a remote or something ( comedic even ) to 'summon' the tank.

When the tank bits are falling into place, I think it would look better if slightly zoomed in, then when they hit the ground. Move everything as if the ground shook a bit.

( Shaking effect )

- Everthing moves up to the right for 2 frames, then ( from the center ) back down to the left. Then back to center.

Also you could zoom everything in a bit more, you have a lot of negative space.

Those would be my recommendations.

I decided eventually not to take part in this collab, already sent you a pm about this but thought it would be good to post here as well.

Good luck to you all :)

Huh, if the stage size should be 854x480, why is the background image 848x480?

I noticed that too, I just stretched out the BG to make it fix, I'm sure they'll fix it when they put the final piece together.

Yeah, I stretched it too for now.

Also, I just remembered, I have flash cs5.5 so if anyone has cs4 and cs3 to convert the .fla to flash 8, that would be cool.
