After a year-long hiatus, the Sketch Collab is back for 2019, with a brand new host, that being yours truly!

This collab brings together a group of animators who each create a series of short animations that depicts an actual pencil sketch in motion!

It's incredible to see this collab still running after all these years. You guys did a stellar job with it! I'd have probably chosen a single music track throughout the whole thing so that you don't accidentally get the feeling that the show's about to end when it's only 2/3 of the way through, but other than that, it really aced the "sketches come to life" vibe this collab series goes for.

I'm tempted to make a comeback on the next one, for old time's sake.

Some of these were amazing!

These were all really nice.

Love the video and glad it got a debut. @NickConter, there's nothing wrong with my knowledge of perspective as the piece wasn't meant to be clean or neat. The end appearance was meant to be sketch-like; sorry you didn't like some of the entries.

Since the star system only lets me vote on the video as a whole I'm gonna vote on each one with a small description right here (it mostly reflects how I felt about each one):

AntonioMabs: It switched from clean lines to sketchy lines and the second part was just nonsense, coulda ended after the sword slashed the screen. 2/5
Camuri: Pretty good overall, comes with a transformation and a neat fight. 4/5
Crashgen: I liked the animation but what's up with the proportions of the character? 2.5/5
Topple: Again, from clean lines to sketchy ones or even colored parts to non colored lines, the animation was alright. 3/5
davidpuralocura: Short but sweet 2.5/5
IVOanimations: Just because you made a symbol look sketchy doesn't mean you can just tween it around. Blam/5
Jakeneutron: really liked the whole thing even tho I don't get why Spinel appears in the middle. 4.5/5
Lusin: It felt too long and the whole thing doesn't look like it belongs in the collab. 1/5
Ozone: Parts of it looked choppy but it made me laugh. 3/5
redemer19: There's no timing in the way the characters move but I love the way it looks. 3.5/5
RGPAnims: Better than IVO but still a lot of tweening Ryan. 0.5/5
OniShaggy: Don't use light colors with a light background, also what just happened? 1.5/5
BigBone1024: The proportions change a lot but I can tell that you had fun with it. 3/5
SplatterCat: That was cute. 4/5
Wandaboy: I can tell you did this in a day and not because you told me. 1.5/5
TerrorByte: How does he still have legs after jumping down a window? 1.5/5
TopazAzul: I feel like you should study perspective a bit more. 1/5
ShiroGaia: The more the animation keep going the more missing inbetweens it had. 2/5
Carmet: I liked the animation but it looked like it had some gaps that made it look awkward. 3/5
HenryEYES: Love how it looks, hate that it's so short. 3/5

TerrorByte responds:

Jelly legs, weeeeeeeee

Tiltro responds:

Of horse some of them are messy, it’s the sketch collab baby.

davidpuralocura responds:

wow thank you for a full review of every single part
i appreciate when people put effort on a review and more coming from nick
thanks again for the single scores i enjoyed doing my part

RGPAnims responds:

Yet I never used any motion tweens in mine.

Anyways, not to be rude, but while I don't mind the structure in which you reviewed this collab, a lot of these scores seem quite harsh for such minuscule descriptions. (e.g. giving TerrorByte's part a 1/5 because of the character still having their legs after jumping, or Lusin's a 1/5 due to its length, while completely disregarding the animation/art itself)

OniShaggy responds:

I kinda understand the 1.5 on mines, the head turn part was done in the first month of the collab then several months pass of not animating so the rest of it is just me relearning how to animate while thinking of anything to add Doesnt help that it's like the shortest one too πŸ˜…

ShiroGaia responds:

Thanks my guy! Ran short on time but I’ll know that for next time now!
