⭐️ 14 Days to Go! YOU CAN DO IT!! ⭐️

That's right! We're coming up on the DEADLINE of Dec 11, 2023 @ 11:59pm EST for the Sweet Sixteen Comic Contest! There's so many comics so far, and I've seen a lot of WIPs too. It's exciting to see all these comics being made for Newgrounds!

If you've finished your comic, CONGRATS!! THAT'S AWESOME! I will be reading all of them, no worries. If you haven't finished, YOU CAN DO IT!! I've made comics in less time than this. πŸ’– And to both, MAKE SURE TO USE THE sweetsixteencomic TAG!!

If you need more details, please head over to the OG post and read up! I look forward to reading your comic too!

And as always...

So! I’ve been on Newgrounds for 4 YEARS NOW and it’s been awesome! I love this community, and I’ve made a lot of cool stuff because of the energy here. Also! I’ve been an Aussie citizen for 4 YEARS NOW! Which is also awesome. So when you multiply 4 and 4 together and then add in a favorite art form of mine, you get:

βœ¨πŸ’–πŸ“–The Sweet Sixteen Comic Contest!πŸ“–πŸ’–βœ¨

PRIZES for the Best 16 Page Comics:

1st Place - $500 USD

2nd Place - $300 USD

3rd Place - $150 USD

4th Place - $50 USD

We will try to have it all judged and prizes given out before Christmas. We know how it be. Prizes will be paid through PayPal. And if anyone wants to throw in cash or other things as prizes, DM me.

We’re also teaming up with @Ugasisvelta to do podcast interviews with the winners! Thanks, Ugasi!

Here’s how it works:

  • Make a 16 page comic, digital or traditional, color or b/w, that’s up to you!
  • Then post them here to Newgrounds with the tag sweetsixteencomic. DO NOT SPLIT YOUR COMIC INTO MULTIPLE POSTS! We will not read comics that are split into multiple posts. That means you will have to put all 16 pages into a single Art Portal post. Artists can be involved in multiple projects, but each comic needs a single post.
  • Make sure to have them posted on or before December 11th, 2023, at 11:59pm EST! No submission will be accepted afterwards. (I've posted some images that had EDT rather than EST, but I meant EST because I'm using Newgrounds Time, which is the Eastern Time Zone. I hate Daylight Savings...)
  • Original stories will be judged higher over fan comics, though if you can make that awesome FNF or Space Dandy comic that blows us judges away, go for it!
  • We’re accepting comics E through M. Keep It P-Bot Friendly! :D
  • If your comic is part of a series you’re working on, keep in mind we will not be reading the rest of the series. Though this is a good excuse for starting your series!
  • And if your comic is longer than 16 pages, we will only be reading the first 16 pages, so make β€˜em a banger.

Some Clarification:Β 

  • A cover only counts as a page if you need it. So if you have 15 pages of comic, the cover can be your sixteenth page, but it’s fine to have 16 pages of comic and a cover.
  • Collabs are OK! Just designate a collab organizer for possible PayPal purposes.

Da Judges:

@KittyhawkMontrose (that’s a-me!)



Where Can I Show Off WIPs, Ask Questions, Organize Drawpiles?

  • My X Community (yes, X), Coffee Into Australia. Keep in mind, the post links can be public.
  • My IRC/webchat (yes, IRC), #sweetsixteencomic on Montrose.Β Here's more info on how to join.
  • Three Rules in my communities: NO ILLEGAL PORN, NO SPAMMING/FLOODING (Sadposting and excessive promotion included), and NO FURRY MATERIAL/ LINKS
  • Please keep in mind that while furry material is banned on Montrose, I will be making exceptions during the contest period in Coffee Into Australia and #sweetsixteencomic. It will not be allowed on any other Montrose.is channel and will revert back after the contest.
  • This Newgrounds Forum Post!
  • DM me on Newgrounds if you got questions too. Not so good for WIP and Drawpiles tho.

The Multi-Image Art Portal Update Is Here!

Thank you so much to @PsychoGoldfish for the new Art Portal Update! Now comics are easier than ever to post to Newgrounds. And thanks to @TomFulp, everyone will have enough pages to do the contest. Non-subscribers will have the ability to post up to 20 pages during the contest period. That's so awesome! Please check out Tom's News Post for more details: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1528343


I’ve posted quite a few comics here on Newgrounds. Here’s some I can link to:

And here’s a fun one by @deadspread83:

I believe that’s it! I can’t wait to see all the comics, and come on by and chat on in Coffee Into Australia, the Newgrounds Forum Post, or IRC!

Normal Girl is a comic about a normal girl living her normal life. Please give it a read! I hope you enjoy it. I of course used Bando’s Comic Wizard to publish it. If you too have a comic you want to publish on Newgrounds, please consider using this easy and free utility!

There’s special thanks included in the comic to all the awesome people who encouraged me to work on Normal Girl. πŸ’–

Normal Girl print comic sold out at Comicstreet 2023. I was really shocked and happy with the response. Here’s some fanart that @Warvester made to celebrate that moment. Very cute!


Happy Readings! πŸ’–Β 

EDIT: 2nd Place P-Bot Daily Pick?! Wow! Thank you so much!
