I'm the current moderator of the Weekly Sketch Group and I'd like to invite the writers here on Penciljack to participate in the weekly sketch group! Yes, you read correctly, the weekly sketch group! But you don't have to draw any pictures (unless you really want to ). Instead I would like you to consider writing a short (3-4 paragraph) written "sketch" of an original character or concept for us sketch-groupers to draw.
In past sketch groups the moderator has attempted (with mixed success) to come up with an original character or concept for the artists participating in the sketch group to draw. Here an example: WSG208.
So, if you'd like to have a bunch of different artists take a crack at drawing an original character or premise created by you PM me your short concept/story and I'll include it in the following week's new sketch group. I'll make sure to credit you as the creator/author of the piece as well.
Thats cool, sounds like fun !
This is a great idea. What if we had a stickied thread in the Writing Forum where people could post character concepts and SCMarooney, you can just pick one from the stack each week. Only reason I suggest that is the PM system is limited and if this idea takes off your Inbox'll be flooded.
Thanks for the positive responses, everyone! I got a good submission from Night Robin that I'll use in WSG 218 when I post it up on Sunday to run for the first week of August. For now it'll just be a one-per week "extra feature" of the sketch-group, and I'll use the written "sketches" on a first-come, first-serve basis.
@SRScribe: Good idea with the Sticky Thread! If I get an overwhelming response that fills up my inbox I'll definitely contact CBikle or another mod for help in creating a sticky thread here in the writer's forum.
Great idea, been looking forward to something like this on PJ. I'll be submitting something to you soon.
scmarooney = genius.
Awesome job keeping WSG going AND now bringing in writers?! Only thing is I'd make it a solid word count number (like 150-200 words or less) as a rule. It'll keep it short/quick to read, plus a little challenge to writers (harder to make something short really good).
