2012 Calendar & Animate: Epic Fall

Respond to this Topic

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.

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

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.

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.
