Update 1-9-09: Holy Crap! We made 9th in the comp. I am absolutely thrilled. Tom (the glorious man that he is) filled in the last two slots in the top ten and we were awarded 9th place! Thanks so much to everyone on NG and to everyone who voted and supported us. I decided to leave my first paragraph of my original post below so that (as if anyone cared) people could see what Luis and Tom were responding to. Thanks again to Tom and everyone on NG.
Oh well, who wants a cigar anyways?
Haha, the Christmas results are out (as I'm sure you know because anyone here is more likely to read Tom's post before mine, but I digress) and I think that Sketched placed fairly favorably. Sure no winnings were in order, but I think as first runner up we put up a damn good fight for not having made front page (of course that's a double edged sword, because if we had made front page more people may have hated our submission... Doh!)
Anyways, onwards and upwards. The Sketched January release is well underway and with ease the best looking of all the sketched cartoons to date. This is in a large part due to the hard work of SmirkStudios who put a tremendous amount of time and effort into doing the backgrounds for our new cartoon. He added a lot of great detail that I am usually to strapped for time (and lazy) to add to the backgrounds and I couldn't be more thankful.
As a bit of a trade off the Sketched crew also did voice work for his new cartoon "Teen Pijinz" which should be out in early February. So keep an eye out at the end of January and early February for more amazing content from the Sketched crew and Smirk Studios.
As a side note I would also like to mention that we at Noreasta Productions (the purveyors of Sketched) are in no way opposed to working with others on ours or their cartoons. Although I do not have much extra time to help with animation, if anyone is looking for voices we are more than glad to lend a helping hand, and if anyone would like to get in on animating a Sketched episode by all means drop me a PM (just please make sure that you have work of your own to show) because we have more skits recorded than I could ever animate on my own.
I will leave you fine people with a bit of concept art from our next cartoon over which to speculate and bemuse yourselves. This is my original concept art and does not contain Smirk's background (which is much better than my own.)
Till next time, keep on rockin NG.
