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

that was good, but

there were only like 2 that where better than mine and the only reason they were better is because they looked tedious and repetetive. if i had alot of time i would make those but i dont cause i use all me time trying to get flash made and money for a new tablet. but its good to see other peoples work. half werent that good though, but the other half was great

Excellent, excellent.

Damn. This is a really cool concept. Excellent artwork, and an easy to follow format. The lack of music wasn't a big problem, but it would be nice to have some all the same.
I hope you do this again, and possibly instead of requesting certain users to contribute, make it open to submission, then decide from there which sketches to use. It seems many people, myself incuded, would love to take part in this.

Superb idea

Excellently executed
Do this again soon!! (and count me in!)

On the flash side i must say the simple navigation worked without error. The layout was nice and good but could do with some music to keep it moving along. Maybe on the next tour you can get artists to pick a backing track to go with their art :)

People find this review helpful!

Nice community project.

This was a good idea being able to see submissions from artists in the NG community and all. There are definetly a lot of talented artists here just by looking at a few pages of this. I can't wait to see what will show up in the next sketchbook tour. And everyone who had a drawing in it, keep up the good work.


This is a game?
Well anyways, nice drawing's you did ;)
