Hello, fellow Newgrounders/NGers!
It's me HenryEYES, yep I stole the sketch collab, with permission that is... SO that means I'll be the 6th host of the sketch collab... The dynasty continues.... ANYWAY, I didn't want to let this to collab die, since more than 10 YEARS it's been a relaxing lil collab for noobies to start off in, because it never required compex riggs, fully cleaned up animation or backgrounds. In anycase I invite you all to join!******
I'd also like to take the chance to thank @valtervalyun for hosting the last sketch collab.
Here's the last The Sketch Collab from 2017 – https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/702178
You can use any software you feel comfortable with, as long you can export it as an .mp4 file and keep the background in place.
1. Follow the given specs.
2. Animate frame-by-frame – avoid or keep tweens at the bare minimum.
3. Do not animate by the following:
- Nudity / Pornographic / Sexual content
- Sprite / Stick figures
- Stolen content
4. Refrain on using sounds; music will be provided.
5. Do not weaksause your submissions. Do more than just your best effort in your work. If necessary, other participants and I will be providing critique & suggestions to others' work.
6. Post your progress from time to time, every two weks or so often (Just don't disappear). When doing so, please upload it to discord as an MP4 or GIF.
Stage size – HD format 1920 x 1080
FPS -- 24
Duration -- Between 5 to 20-30 seconds
Format -- .mp4
First date of the baby deadline is September 1st. By then you should have a solid idea of your animation, know whether or not you can finish your animation, and have a good chunk of work done on it.
Second is a more set in stone hard deadline of mid-October, let's say October 15th.
On that day, I do expect most submissions finished. And when I mean finished, I mean fully in-betweened, no keys, no breakdowns; fully (sketch) animated.
There'll obviously be a bit of wiggle room for submissions, but do not rely on it.
There is no hard cap on the amount of peoples that can join, but we are aiming for 20 (more or less).
If you want to join, join the official unofficial Newground Discord server, that is where all the progress checks and discussion is happening.
