NG Sketchbook Tour 06

Author Comments

This was a rather ambitious project, the idea was to send out the pages of a sketchbook to NG members all over the globe, their task was to draw all over it and mail it back to me.
At the end of the project the sketchbook was reassembled and the finished version now rests at the Newgrounds HQ.
Since not everyone can visit the office to see the real thing, this online version was built.
It doesnt come close to the experience of seeing the real drawings but it does let you see what everyone did.

There was about 72 entries sent out, 61 returned.
All in all a successful project and this will eventually migrate into being a part of the redesigned ng site when it is released through the efforts of Stamper.

Thanks to everyone who participated, sorry you all hated that brown paper, lol. And I'll be running this again next year, using white paper. See ya next year

Some people were wondering how much this project costed:
72 entries mailed at approx. $2.50 = $177
binding = $5.00
3 sketchbooks taken apart = 3 x 7.00 = $21.00

GRAND TOTAL = $203.00

***Featured Artists*** If you see any grammatical errors or what not PM me so i can change it. I'm only human.



Another amazing yearly sketcbook concept, seems the scale of budget was much larger than thinkable too, that's a shitload of money for one no-income generating flash. Anyhow, lots of great entries in this, artistic and unique, all of them, keep up the great work!



Is it on paper, or they do it on the computer?


Even though it's the 1st version, it still could of used some simple features such as, sound. All and all, the idea was nice and the artwork was more or less really good-looking. Background&layouts were good, too.
Overall nice, good luck.

Fantastic mixture of style here!

The best way to start off this sketchbook was done, with the entry from I-Mockery a page full of scathing rant about the low quality paper used for the sketchbook! From that we just get page after page of everyone's own unique ideas pencilled onto the page.

Special attention has to be paid to Aloneinthedark's entry, a fantastic looking cityscape. I can only imagine the amount of time and attention it took to draw that, especially with the strange perspective used!

Bluebaby's entry is also pretty impressive, having to colour the background must have been a real bitch, but the intracite detail to the pattern is amazing. similar props go to the Super Flash Brothers for their brilliant Another Day on the moon sketch! Pako, your entry was just a deluge of colours and shapes and pure brilliance!

I think what could have made this better is if there was a link to each persons newgrounds profile (where applicable) as it would make it a lot easier to root out artists whose work you'd like to see a lot more of. Possibly a little music wouldn't go a miss either...

Still, this was a fantastic idea, one I hope to see implemented every year, with certain Author's who chowed incredible skill or a great dedication to the Ng community returning, but also for newer artists to possibly receive some more widespread exposure!
