HowdyDoo, fellow Newgrounders!
Yo yo yo yo. This time, me and Nick are back with the sketch collab 2020, sorta like a good cop/ bad cop pair (you figure out who’s who). So no one is getting away with any sneaky poopydoodoo.
Here's the last The Sketch Collab from 2019 – https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/744539
You can use any software you feel comfortable with, as long you can export it as an .mp4 file with the given specs and keep the background in place.
1. Follow the given specs.
2. Animate frame-by-frame – tweens are forbidden
3. Do not animate the following:
- Nudity / Pornographic / Sexual content / Extreme Gore
- Sprite / Stick figures
- Stolen content
4. Refrain on using sounds; music will be provided.
5. Do not weaksauce 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 weeks 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
Background -- We are still looking for someone to create a background
Format -- .mp4
First date of the baby deadline is July 31th. 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, we’ll be checking every two weeks.
Second is a more set in stone hard deadline of August 31th.
On that day, I do expect most submissions finished. And when I say 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.
The cap on people that can join is 10, you can still get in as a backup in case someone drops out or doesn’t show progress on the checkups.
If you want to join, join the official unofficial Newground Discord server, that is where all the progress checks and discussion is happening.

Hopefully I'll see you all there!
P.S. -- Who wants to create the Intro and outro for the collab?
