Alrighty, holding off The Sketch Collab until I got a PC was a bad idea as time flies. Guess I'll have to pass the torch to somebody.
@Tidohuki recommends @ValterValyun so go ahead, man. I hope you guys make a better collab than I ever could. You're free to change the format and style to however you see fit. Otherwise, I usually pick @Saminat to do the paper background and, when the collab is put together, any current year music by @Geoplex
On that note, sign me up to do a part, that is if the deadline is October or after.
I just need to sort some stuff out is all. If I find myself unable to persue it in the upcoming months, I'll ask for someone else to take over.
It feels awesome that we were able to continue Newgrounds' longest running collab to this day, and it's such a thrill to work with and meet so many neat artists every year. This one was a ton of fun, and hopefully we can see more new faces for next year's installment.
So thanks for second place daily, and keep on animating!
So, uh, question. I'm looking for a new laptop to animate on. You guys know any good brands that make custom-made, graphics-heavy, somewhat affordable laptops, and what specs do you think are enough to load Adobe programs like Photoshop and Flash well?
Just like every year, your objective is to create a short animation showing what it would look like if the doodles on your page started moving. It should look like it was done with pencil.
1. No porn or sexual content.
2. Obey the specs given below.
3a. You can use your own sounds, but music will be included, so don't make sound vital.
3b. If sound is included, don't make it too loud or too quiet.
4. No sprites.
5. Sticks are allowed, but not encouraged.
6. Must be frame by frame - some tweening can be done, but keep it to a minimum.
7. Don't make rubbish or half-assed parts, do your best.
8. Stay active in the thread, post every few weeks or so.
9. Please tell us if you're dropping out, don't just disappear.
10. If you do not obey the specs and you make a part, you must create a new one no questions asked.
11. Use as fewer layers as you possibly can.
12. You must include a signature at the bottom right of your part.
Stage: Standard, 854x480 or 1280x720
Format: CS3 to CS6 .fla, .flv
Time: 5-20 seconds
Deadline: September 1st
That's right. Undertale's taken my mind and soul, and I won't have closure until I make two more animations I have planned for it (that of which aren't Let's Play voiceovers). It's both fulfilling and depressing at the same time, but I just can't get over this f*cking game.
I'll still upload non-Undertale drawings on DeviantArt now and then, maybe pony or original comics, but for animations, sorry to disappoint those who were expecting anything else.
Play the game if you haven't.
You like all those things? Well I got the cartoon for you! (Spoilers!)
Amalloc has launched the Indiegogo campaign for the There She Is!! HD Remastered DVD, and for the upcoming 6th episode of the series, which tells the story of the three bullies after the events of the fifth episode.
Perks include a 72 hour preview of episode 6 online, a physical copy of the HD remastered series, wallpapers and artwork, and much more! This was one of the series that defined Newgrounds back in the day, and it's time for us to show some appreciation!
Dangit, I really wanted that game. Better luck next time. :P
"Eureka. Eureka! EUREKA! My lifelong dream, realized!"
Heh, in all seriousness, thank you Newgrounds for the Front Page and Daily Feature, and thank you guys for showing us your support. Please take the time to check out the artists who worked on this year's collab, and also check out all the previous years' collabs, they're all pretty cool. c:
We hope to see you, and if you're an animator have you, in the next Collab for our 10th anniversary. Thanks again, and we'll catch you later.
