Sketch Star

Here at Miniclip we are sad to announce that on April 16th 2013, Sketch Star will be closing and will no longer be available to users after this date.

To ensure that you don’t lose any of your work, we recommend that you download your animations as soon as possible from the animation watching page. All you need to do to save it is click on the Download button below the animation! If you have any problems doing this, please let us know by contacting support@miniclip.com.

Sketch Star has been a wonderful part of the Miniclip site for several years now. We have had over 1 million animations published in the past two years; however, it is a huge product that requires a lot of maintenance, constant moderation and lots of care that, unfortunately, we are no longer able to provide.

Despite continued development and innovation the Sketch Star fan base has been decreasing slowly for the last year. It has been a hard decision but it’s time for us to put Sketchy to bed.

We’re very attached to Sketchy and the community that has built around him. However currently there are no plans to bring Sketch Star back in any form. That said, we will be keeping the code in a safe place and, if the right idea or opportunity comes along, then he may be woken up once again.

Miniclip’s focus has always been games – and whilst Sketch Star is a fantastic tool and has been a wonderful experience for us (and hopefully you) – we now want to focus on our core strengths, the things that make us great! We’re really sorry about any disappointment, and hope that you stick around to see our future projects.

We’ve put together this video with some of our favourite Sketch Star animations over the last couple of years. We hope you enjoy:

Update 3/4/13: further to the news above, we would like to announce that on 8th April 2013 Sketch Star creator is going to be removed so that we can process any pending animations. Please ensure that all animations are completed before this date.

  1. Well, I am really sorry that your amazing page is gonna be closed. I had a great time in Sketch Star, I made some new friends and it was really a great experience. I really liked drawing animations on your page, earning editor’s picks, likes and views, but all the good things have an end.. Wish you the best ;)

    • It was really fun to do this for a while. I had so much things planned. Thanks Miniclip for making a wonderful site, I sort of understand about all that labor and stuff with moderating. I also want to give a special thanks to wonkystick for commenting on a few of my animations and became my fan. Hope things work out miniclip.

    • :( aww D: i had great time in sketch star, on my other account i had alot of views, my first editior’s pick was a pic i drawn of MJ, :( i’ll miss going on sketch star

    • Well, I made a two-part animation called The Last Episode of Sketch Star.
      Part 1 has people sad, Now they are forced to destroy the coporation, in Part 2, Sketchy was invaded by alien spammers, But at the end, Sketchy fell to a deadly volcano and he was never heard of again.

    • me too i loved sketch star but all things come to an end despite the fact they might be getting a new cool feature on miniclip such as webcam sketch star which probably would be sketch star without using the keyboard and mouse but by using your fingers without touching the screen i really enjoyed sketch star even though i liked all the games on miniclip i especcially (hope i spelled right)loved sketch star i loved drawing painting and spraying and much more and i liked how miniclip gave likes loves and editors picks when i heard about the news a tear nearly came out of my eye i really hope miniclip gets back a improved or same sketch star from kingsupernasim

    • Please don’t go ;( Im going to miss using this I just stared a few days ago…… ;(

    • I am soooooo sorry that you have to put old Sketchy to sleep. I have had so many great times making animations. I will be sure to tell my friends about it so they can share their sorrow. I just wish I could help to keep it on Miniclip. Just like Teoukos said, all good things have an end… I wish you the best. R.I.P. SKETCHY

See you around, guys ! ;) Bye ! TT

  7. The unicorn dies :(
    Also I’m nearly at the GOLDEN VIEW, how frustrating it is that I’m not going to get the trophy in time before the death/execution of the best game on miniclip.

    • I was so close to blue votes!!! Wonky, you were always one of my favorite artists and you have a remarkable talent and sense of humor. Lets just pray miniclip will find a way to keep sketch star…

    • Hi wonky, thanks for being positive about my animations and becoming one of my 100+ fans. You have awesome animations and have been a great friend. If only, we could look into the future and see if a sketch star revival will come…

    • That’s really sad. I was aiming for a Dioamand award but never made it for the time. Luckliy, there’s only a month to go to do this, so you will get it in time :)

    • aww, I got so excited when I found myself on the top artists two days before the chaos. I MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!

    • Ikr wonkystick I love your animations and those would take me 1million years to make and they wouldn’t be as good as yours. So id agree that’s very frustrating. I was almost at 5000 views total I think. lol.

    • Looks like I got the ‘GOLDEN VIEW’ so thanks everyone who ever voted, viewed and downloaded my animations, it means a lot to me that so many of you liked my work :)
      Thanks to the sketch star team for the last few years of creative entertainment, it really helped me develop my artistic skills.

    • I’m pretty sure they are doing this because of all the inappropriate animations or pictures on the site. but if this is not so then they just want an upgrade for it.

  8. Well, I guess shelving Sketch Star will give Miniclip staff more time to gangnam dance around the office….Seriously, this is appalling news.The sophistication of Sketch Star creator and it’s interactive community makes it a unique website. Without Sketch Star Miniclip is merely another gaming site.

  9. This game made miniclips to what it is now,you have surly made a HUGE mistake by taking this away from children who use it to express they selfs and to find friends,they are alot of children out there who’s only comunication with this world is through sketchstar.
    I Smudger8180 after all these years playing this game, Iam very heart-broken,to lose all my work,never to be shown again to the world.
    This is a very bad move guys..
    bye to all my good friends at sketchstar.:(

    • Hi smudger, please help me! Create and share an animation where you invite all the artists that we need sketchstar. I’m your fan a sketchster!! Please!

    • I agree. As an 8 year old girl, I have been angered by this news and this is wrong. Why shut down a good site? I’m moving to my iPad’s animation creator now…..:'(

    • I Loved this Site I loved Sketch Star more than games. I think they ruined it by taking away the forums.
      That is where friends were made. Now Mini Clip is JUST ANOTHER game site.Smudger I miss you friend.

  10. NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THIS WAS MY FAVORITE WEBSITE IF IT STOPS I MIGHT HAVE A HEART ATTACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. thanks to all the great artist , the amazing friends,the incredible Fans i have met at sketch star, like Boilesprout,Doctorunk,Wonkystick,Arkelios,Ever_963,december12,flibobfishwak,imonkey866,flip-n-skip,Evepiolin88,cheetah300,clymenus, ME!:freda:27, and a beautiful person for me , hes sooo sweet with me, i MISS he! SWEETAFTON, Oh Adrian hope u are batter,How u doin Love???

  12. PLZZ DON’T TURN IT OFF I BEG YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love sketch star the only thing saw me through some very difficult times, if you do this i will ugggghhhhh………this will put me in a mood where i will never do anything like animation or drawing forever and I love drawing, I’ll be bored just doin’ nothin’
    so PLZ don’t do this plz just find a permenant way to keep this program up because it’s the others fault for leavin’.Care about the ones who love sketch star and the ones who treasure it so don’t send sketchy to bed tell him to stay up all night and carry on giving so many of us a world of creation that helps us define ourselves through our art.. So think about it and i am the player called Khayleh!!!

  13. Hi Freda -27 I’m good thanks, Agree with boiled sprout our drawings and animation will not be seen by any one any more. All the artists drew great works of art will not be seen by any one, Thank to all my friends and fans for making sketchstar a beautiful place to come and draw . It’s a new low to make so many young people all over the world very unhappy at the same time. good luck to you all my artist friends

  14. That is so sad. I had loved animating on Sketch Star since 2009, and it has been a great community for all the awesome artists my age. Since we haven’t been able to animate probably because of some technical difficulties I guess, I’ve been real sad. I’ll miss you all!

    • BESSY!!! OMG I MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!! I am going to create a Deviantart account, and my username will be tape-dispenser. I hope to see you there!

  15. NOOO! Please no!! MCF was just getting to the good part!!! At least we have Deviant Art. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :(! WHY?! This could get more popular!! This is probally the worst day for Miniclip. . . :( :( :(

  16. But SketchStar can’t leave!! It lets people express themselves freely without anyone judgiing them on their looks and size. It just helps alot of people!! NOOOOOO! Don’t shut down Sketch Star!!! :( :( :(

  17. im so sad sketchy had to go away……. just started to get aton of views…… i mean really, 15,385 views in all is a lot for me in 2 years!

  18. Oh, by the way, Sketch Star Moderators, thanks soooooo much for moderating the animations that we create. It makes the experience so much better. Farewell Sketch Star and may you arise again :(

  20. If u need something , here i am, thanks my fans youre the best, all my Luv here 4 u, from Mexico City, LOS AMO,gracias…

  21. It’s been a fun 4 years for me. I’ll miss everyone’s comments on my occasional bizarre animations the most. With such an amazing (and addictive) creative outlet folding up I don’t know where I’ll go to do my stuff. Youtube’s a big and scary place, and not as welcoming as I’ve felt here. Thanks again for encouraging my behavior ! With love~~~Doctorunk

  22. Wow, I can’t believe sketch star is gonna be over. This was a home to me, and I met so many great people and viewed some of the most incredible art I have ever seen. Sketch Star was an inspiration for me, it allowed me to be creative and showed me a new side of myself I hadn’t known. Whether it was the amazing animation tool Sketch Star provided or just searching throughout other people’s creations, Sketch Star was my favorite website without a doubt. I do realize that the fan base has shrunk over the past year, but I only wish that we could download the program to let us continue to animate, to keep creativity and art in our lives. I will miss all of my favorite artists: 16fable, pandaexpress29, loveygirl101, boiledsprout, tisma3fis, chona1997, Calimba, wonkystick, Clymenus, little wolfie, Vendiri12, hamburger284, Sweetafton, and most of all my friend idiot_tribute. There are so many more incredible artists I have met throughout Sketch Star, and though these are just a few I think we can all agree that Sketch Star was a place of talent, within EVERY ARTIST no matter how many votes they got. Although I do not completely understand why Sketch Star HAS to shut down, I need to thank the people at miniclip for adding such joy and meaning to my life daily. Sketch Star will be missed, and I only hope that you can find a way to salvage this remarkable website. LONG LIVE SKETCHY!!!!!!
    Sincerely,
    imonkey866

  23. ALSO- to all my fans… If you want to see more of my artwork ( which i will keep doing ;) ) check out my deviant art: Username is imonkey866 ( not gonna give that title up :) ) Hope to see you there

  24. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!! :'( :'( plzzz PLZZZZ!!! ITS MY LIFE I LOVE IT!!!!!!! I WILL H8 U IF U DELETE IT!!! PLZZZ DONT!!!!!!!!

  25. :'( it is soooooo sad I loved being on sketch star the creator was best and I met the greatest artists ever! everyone please make a deviant art account so we can keep in contact with each other ToT

  26. why have you closed something what everyone can enjoy all our drawings and animation’s will not be seen by anyone anymore all these great artists draw Amazing and you are taking this away from them and me. as you can see there are loads of us not happy with what you have done. well to everyone that loved sketch star like i did take care i will miss you guys :( :( :(

  27. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! PLZ PLZ PLZ NOOOO THE SKETCH STAR IS SO SO SO EPIC EVERYONE LOVE IT PLZ DONT CLOSE

  28. Butting my heart broken bitterness to one side, i do have to thank all those people involved with Miniclip’s SketchStar creator. From the original idea to the creator and developers thank you for give it to us. To all the Miniclip’s staff who have helped us. And listen to our rant through out the last four years. Not very long in real time. And Robert Small for all he has done and achieved with his ideas.
    I personal feel sorry for the people who have
    made this decision, can you really watch children draw, and be happy. and think i took that away from them.
    But then the people who love and create art are small in number. Sketch Star could have done so much more.in a safe and perfect way.
    For the beginners on sketchstar i hope you all continue to draw and fine a other site to show your drawing. You could look and admire the brilliants of Boiled Sprouts creation and bunny, and Wonkystick super funny work , and think some I’ll be as good as they are.

    As Miniclip steps backwards into the gaming, which really teaches nothing. Good Luck

  29. Is there any chance Miniclip could make creator available in these last weeks so that we can complete our unfinished animations. I had put a lot of work into Cloverfail Part 2 and now all will be lost and never seen :( I know doctorunk has a really special animation almost finished too :( This would be a very nice gesture from Miniclip

    • They should do that….I had an animation yet to finish and I have improved A LOT since my last animation(s) and I wish I could finish and share that animation…

    • Good point, Sprout ! Yeah I had one prepared for the ‘Food’ contest that would have been (at least I think ) my crowning achievement. 3/4 of the way finished. Now it’s dead in the water. Sad that my last one was just a ‘quickie’ to keep my name out there.

      See you all over at ‘Disa painted’. Seems to be the only animation website around now where you can create your own characters. Seems very basic though, and not much of a following.

  30. PLEASE DON’T DO THIS!I HAD A GREAT TIME ON SKETCH STAR AND I MADE SOME FRIENDS TOO!ARKELIOS,COOLKITTEN,KARMARUNAMOK…BYE BYE SKETCH STAR…I’LL. MISS YOU…

  31. please don’t close your website :(sketchy isn’t tired :'( sketch star team please don’t do this . you were a amazing team with a website that was so wunderful . i don’t believe it really a tear is streaming down my face :( :'(

  32. whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  33. This is devastating news. I was hoping SS would soon be back, better and stronger than ever…
    I will miss all of my buddies very much. Come say hi someday on Yahoo Answers. I write poems and stuff under the name “the cheese whisperer.”
    I hope to meet Piggy and Bunny again, someday, somewhere, maybe in another life…
    Thanks for all the support, friends, and thanks, Sketch Star for providing a magnificent service for as long as you possibly could.
    It was a fun, rewarding experience. Karma

    • Hey Karma! I miss you :( I love your art! I am getting a deviantart account with the same username as my sketch star one. look me up soon!

    • hi mate, i’m on Deviant art, but i can’t find people on it and i can’t create anything new, many thanks for all your funny comments and take care.

  34. NO! Hello dear Miniclip community! Do you know, that we all worked hard doing these animations. I’m maresysyki. You can find me in Sketch Star. Only in this app page i shared my art in a easy way. Please think! Maybe you won’t read my REPLY, but I’m sure, that some other people will! And I’m sure, that the other people will agree. We have to do something. We all need this app…why did the other artists worked so hard…why did they created so many beautyful animations and objects??? They did this, to make your site better…To make it colorful and interesting for young people. Now I’m the one who says PLEASE.. DON’T CLOSE SKATCH STAR!!!! I don’t know what is the reason to do tis thing, but if you close the app…the young artist will be as sad as me!!! The reason to write all these words is that I CAN’T IMAGINE MY LIVE WITHOUT SKETCHSTAR!!!
    maresysyki

  35. Just one last thing,Farewell to all my fans and friends on SS,We had some awesome artist old and new on here.good luck to you all for the future.
    you can find me still active on my player page and also on Goodgame Big Farm,I no longer able to play goodgame gangster due to my server going down and hours of unsucessful loading :(.
    WELL GOODBYE EVERYONE.:)

  38. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
    I will miss Sketch Star more than you can imagine :-(

  39. Owent47,i like you, and i apricciate that you are following me, so if you don’t want to lose my animations, download them. :-P

  40. I am so shocked. Sketch Star got me interested in digital art and its still a hobby for me now. I enjoyed making drawings and animations on a regular basis and getting feedback from other users. It encouraged me to carry on and to get where I am now. I also met a lot of great people here too and I chat to quite a lot of them regularly still. I was an active Sketch Star user on and off for 15 months. My peak was around the summer of 2012, doing portraits and other drawings for others. Sketch Star was an amazing experience and I will never forget it. Goodbye Sketch Star, you will be missed.

  41. I can’t believe my child hood is closing down. I would like to say bye to my wonderful friends moose,vil and sing bing. I am going to miss you all :( i would also like to say good bye to my dear paddy who i am going to miss so much…. over and out …. None of these

  42. I’m very sad to hear this news. I hope that SS will come back soon, and I wanted to say goodbye to: MooseyFate, TapeDispenser, AquaBlue12345, Singy_Chipmunk, Aistecool and all my other fans! ~Chewy

    • Hey chewy! I miss you so much! I miss everyone so much! Thanks for being my fan; I love your art! I am going to get a deviantart account; my username will be tape-dispenser. look me up!

  43. D’= I remember my first day on Sketch Star like it was yesterday. (Light bulb)I have an idea! I will make a donation to Miniclip! But I will have to do some major chores first!

    • Hai Person ^-^ I’m not sure if yew heard of meh or not (Im pretty sure yew have though if yew went on sketch star a lot XP ) I started a group to try to save sketch star c: I’m trying to tell de sketch star worker ppls mai idea to see if it’s ok. If it iz, den we all going to donate dere! c: Im not sure exactly how dis iz going to work yet though, ( which is why Im trying to conteact de worker ppls) If yew want to join here is de link: http://save-sketch-star.deviantart.com/ I hope yew join OwO

  44. Goodvye Skecth star,i had a lovely time making and playing animations. I like all of the spray, well skecthy is a little tired. I want to give a HUGE thank you to all of the amazing avatars who make incredible things. We all hope you come back again!

  45. This really can’t be happening…I left Sketch Star for a while to improve my paper art. Now I come back to this?! Nooo…..everyone here was so inspirational, I looked up to SO many artist’s animating, anime, realistic, just whatever skills. This would’ve been my 4th year on Sketch Star. It used to be such a big part of my life. Everyone treated me like family, even though I wasn’t the best artist, people would still tell me that my animations were good. Honestly, I don’t think I will ever forget Sketch Star. It has inspired me so much. I almost gave up on art because I didn’t think I was good enough. But after seeing so many artists improving, I knew that I could too. If you want to keep seeing my art, though I don’t post much, you can check me out on deviantArt, my username is Petty18. Bye, I’ll miss everyone <3

  46. I am very sorry to hear this. Sketch Star was very important to me; I grew up with it. I am not able to submit an animation, so I will tell you all here that you can view my art on deviantART. My username is TechonphileForever. Farewell, Sketch Star. :(

  47. no, guys, u dont understand, my dream was to animate, and post it online, but this is the ONLYY source i have in creating MAP parts and animations!! i wont be able to make them now…. :'(

  48. How about devloping up ‘flipbook’ so it’s got a few more tools etc. It could be sold as a download app so would make money for whoever creates the software. Just a thought.

  49. I’m sad that one of the websites that I loved dearly when I was younger is going to die.
    I knew it was going to close eventullay, and the animator braking did not help.
    I say that you export your animations to youtube or download them. RIP SS.

  50. I AM SO SAD!!!!!!! Poor Adrian and all of the super awesome ppl. It must be hard on them, it is hard on me . :'( :( :( ::( :(

  51. noooooooooooooooooooo I am crying…………. sketch star ppl, you are making ppl cry!! Not good, sketch star has been a great experience. :( :( :( I AM SO SAD!!!!! I didnt know the end would come so quick lol. :( :( PLZ DO NOT CLOSE!!!!!! I BEG YOU!!!!!!!!!:(

    • ACT!!! aww, I don’t want sketch star to end! look me up on deviantart, I am getting an account! my username will be tape-dispenser. I MISS CHATTING WITH YEW!!

  52. I’m so disappointed! Please reconsider. I just now found this lovely site like a week ago. And it’s the most fun simple way to teach me animation than a program I have which is way complicated to make..
    I really like this site..

  53. I have downloaded all my lovely portraits which everyone has so kindly drawn of me :) i will miss you all! However I am sure we will cross paths again ;)

  54. Now that i have started to download my animations the waterfall has started! I miss you sketch star!

    I got banned from the forums & dA. On July 24th (my birthday) I will be un-banned.
    I will miss you all, especially imonkey, panda, wolife, & all my other good friends.

  66. Hello,
    So sad to know sketch star will be closing…means all work, fun, money, entertain was just a drama I think…Miniclip Should prompt sketch star for more users but its going to be close for EVER!!!!
    We can understand that its going to be close for some days but for evet!! Didn’t expect this….
    Hope all miniclip employees will change the decision….
    It should back SOON!!
    Thanks…

  67. its not rly the animations that i miss the most it was all the chatting and unique drama that i liked y did this have to happen

  68. this was a great website. ill still play the games but this was the best part of the website.
    i hope you come back Sketch Star!

  69. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO i will miss sketch star so much, i would have gotten on more often but it hasn’t been working :(

  70. You know what? this may be the only game i understand how to draw, and it may be my favorite(:
    Sad thing is, it’s over and now i don’t know what to do, i’ll miss you SS. :)

  71. No it’s not a joke. I guess we have to make the most of the time we have left of sketch star. I’m really gonna miss Sketchy and making animations using amazing tools. I hope Sketchy will wake up one day….

  72. Why does sketch star have to end. It was one of the few greatest things on all of Miniclip and most of the internet. It stopped working for me but I didn’t care, but it’s gone soon, so I may never use Miniclip again. I will be forever sorrowed.

  73. I will greatly miss Sketch Star. I think the when the forum went away a lot of the fun went away you could no longer talk to friends about they sketches. I enjoyed that almost as much as sketching.

    • I’m also really sad that miniclip has to close down sketch star. We only had 3 years of sketch star and it’s already getting closed. All we could do is to hope that sketch star re-opens…

  74. well guys that’s so sad… I’m really gonna miss sketch star :'(
    time to upload some drawings on DA I guess..
    my username is Violet-muffles

  75. Well, that’s so sad guys…. I’m really gonna miss sketch star.. :'(
    I guess it’s time to start uploading drawings on DA, my username is Violet-muffles

  76. Well,Good bye.But why did it have to be before I got any likes?I like my own animations,but no one has ever liked my paintings.I get lots of views,yes,but,oh well. Boiledsprout…I…uh… loved you. f-for real.

  77. I am very upset about this.But there is a rainbow after rain!Maybe they will make something better!They might make something where you can make your own games!!!I will miss you all.:( but I would like to say something to everyone:I love you all!I will never forget any of you!I wish I could get boiledsprout a bunny,Wonkystick a piggy,mooseyfate a taco to be continued. :) :(

  78. I am so upset Mini Clip is closing, it’s making me cry. This was the best, easiest, most fun animator I ever used. :'(

  79. I am very sorry to hear that you’re shutting down Sketch Star, however I understand the circumstances. I am a preservice primary school teacher and I decided to incorporate this animation program into an art unit. Sketch Star was to be used for the final piece of assessment for Year 3 – the art theme is Human Impact on the Environment. I greatly value this program and I hope someday it returns to the website or as a program separate from the website. I would HAPPILY pay for this program because I believe it would engage students in learning about art and media, and learning in other curriculum areas through art and media.

  80. Loved using this with my young students. Wish their was a version to download. We have pivot sticks-but this was much better for 1st and 2nd graders

  81. If sketch star can come back it would have more sponsors, ads, and people.
    Sketch star, miniclip and everything… I am going to miss you! Wish you guys the best of luck if miniclip brings it back. ;(

    • We can’t let Miniclip just TAKE SKETCHSTAR AWAY FROM US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone else who posts, write this comment: IF SKETCHSTAR GOES WE GO!! IF SKETCHSTAR GOES WE GO!!

  82. Real shame it’s closing, great tool for young artists to express themselves, many thanks to all my fans and friends, what a great bunch of people you are, and i was just about to do an animation better than Boiledsprout and draw some food better than Adrian, lol, goodbye and take care. FlipBobFishWak.

  83. Why the best application for creating animations has to go? When I search: Animation Creator on google, fist thing on the results it: Sketch Star! I’ll miss all of you, my dear fans and ones who voted on my animations! To: Sketchy. I’ll miss you, dear Sketchy! You we’re my favorite character! I promise! I will save all of my animations about you! No matter on what place did I put you, you’ve always had a beautiful smile on your face! Your neighbors: Snow Sketchy, Summer Sketchy, Pirate Sketchy and I will never forget you! I guess it’s time to put them back into the bed! Hope you’ll one day come and give them a visit in the Sky Valley Background! I wish you sweet dreams! Bye. To: Sketch Star! bye Sketch Star! You’ve been my favorite application! But, I guess it’s time to say: Good-Bye! I’ll miss you! I just hope they’ will keep your code and revive you! Someday! I really hope you will be revived! You and Sketchy could always put smile on my face! To: Miniclip! Please, what is the problem! Why do you want to delete Sketch Star? It’s just…
    not fair! I’ve been dreaming to animate my whole life! Sketchy was one of the best sprites I’ve seen! WHY? Even if you delete it, I hope you’ll revive it… someday! I’ve made 40 animations, I was working on number 41! And I never completed it! :( Think about it! Without Sketch Star, Miniclip is a normal, boring and
    only-for-gaming site! Please think before you make a move!

    From: Farelance, a fellow animator who made 40
    animations and never finished part 2 of episode 1!
    I’ll always be your fan!

  84. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! We love you SketchStar! Miniclip, if you’re reading this, PLEASE don’t take SketchStar! If SketchStar goes, WE go.

  85. Why Miniclip Is Closing Sketch Star?
    Because Miniclip focuses on Flash games, not animation program. If you like SketchStar, there are alternatives for it. EXAMPLE: Goanimate, Xtra Normal.

    • Goanimate and Xtra Normal are only any good for people who want to make animations using somebody else’s art. With Sketch Star you can create your own artwork and make an animation that is truly unique and your own. I’ve seen a few websites where you can draw and animate : ‘Make it Share it’ , ‘Flipbook’
      and ‘DisaPainted’ BUT these are extremely limited in tools and potential and are lacking in interactive community.
      Like others here, I’ve registered with deviantART, where I’ve joined an animation group.
      http://boiled-sprout.deviantart.com/
      I am trying out a downloadable animation application; ‘PENCIL’. If this doesn’t work, I’ll keep looking for a way to continue making animations.

  86. Sketch Star is closing..aww..and download most of my animations but those animations bring me such awesome memories;.( How could this happen to us i cant stand it….It was fun and safe wedsiteX( noo ahhhh WE LOVE U SKETCH STAR EVEN I WONT FORGET AFTER PHEW YEARS IT WAS MY BEST AND FAV WEB AAAHHHH and at april 16 on by bday:…( all those 2 years with skech star AHH HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO US WE HAVED TO BE TOGETHER FOREVER:<<< :( ah umm WE WILL NEVER FORGET U RIGHT GUYS? GOODBYE

    • Yep, I did a test animation, it published OK, so I did a longer animation saying thanks etc to everyone, but that one didn’t publish and is now stuck in ‘pending moderation’ will it ever publish? I hope so, but the odds don’t look good.

  87. I saw adrians last anime for the “white dot” thing. I guess that was his last anime. Anyways, its time to put sketchy to bed :( :_(

  88. why do you hasve to close xxx just hire more staff to do it, if they love making children happy then you must continue! Unless you want to make us sad o_o :'(

  89. I am soooo very disappointed to hear about Sketch Star closing!! I loved this program! I will miss making animations on here and looking at other people’s stuff. This was pretty much the only reason I went on Miniclip, because I don’t play the games all that much . . . So I guess this means goodbye Sketch Star and Miniclip. =( Thank you to all my wonderful fans and to all those who commented on my animations! I appreciate all your support and I’ll miss you all. Sweetafton, flip-n-skip, wonkystick, FlipBobFishWak, and all the other incredible artists out there, I admired your art work very much and will miss seeing it. GOODBYE ALL! *sob sob*

  90. Wish this site wasn’t closing! I can’t believe it!!!
    sketch star is all I do in my free time! Now I have to find a new site. That stinks…

  92. I have been on Sketch Star since I was nine years old, and I have been using it for four years. Sketch Star was not only a fun and easy animation program, but it was also a childhood memory. I will be sad to see it go, and I will be waiting for it to come back (we will be incredibly fortunate if it does), no matter how long it may take. Best of luck, Miniclip; I hope you earn enough money to bring back Sketch Star. However, I believe that the termination of Sketch Star will actually cause you to lose money, as you will lose a lot of members that loved Sketch Star. I am one of them; I don’t care for your games, as they are mostly for children.

  93. Its really sad that Sketch star is going to be closed, im sad, because i have finished a lot of projects… ;( Why? why miniclip? why you do this? a lot of hard work and only for this? for close? please.. Make another animation sistem for all the players in the webpage.. Is so sad, so many creators.. Well, im go to cancel all my animations in progress, because is goin to close… For ever!

  94. I’m going to miss you SketchStar! You’ve inspired me to start animating and I might start posting them on Youtube. I always wanted to animate, and I started here, and I watched how I got better and better at animating and how people liked my animations. I’m going to miss you guys that work for Miniclip who did spend some time to help SketchStar be established. Sketchy, you’ve inspired me to do what I love…. And I’ve made a hobby of it. But it’s time you get some rest…

    DON’T CLOSE SKETCH STAR!!! :c IT’S NOT FAIR!!! I WILL DONATE 300$ (or more) TO KEEP SKETCH STAR OPEN AND I’M SURE A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE WOULD TOO! [link] I made this group to petition the closing of sketch star. Every member agrees with me and im sure would donate a lot of money too. Some of us could even volunteer to help monitor the animations. JUST DON’T CLOSE IT ON US!!! :c
    -The very upset and disappointed, (unless you maybe change your minds c: ) MooseyFate

  117. PLEASE DONT CLOSE SKETCH STAR!!! I have made amazing friends and don’t know how I will be able to talk to them!!! *cries*

    • I wants a ss2. I think they will after they realize how terrible a mistake taking it off actually is. worst case scenario, miniclip gets so unpopular that the whole thing dies, including pool and dogfight.

  146. IcyQuinnBlubber aka Kaylee here
    Omg…I cannot believe this is happening. I didn’t find out until yesterday when I randomly came to the site. Now where are we going to go? Our friends that we have known and became fans of over the years…no way to stay in contact. But rest assured…this isn’t the end, my friends. I just know it.
    DA: WafflesAndCoke (just a way to stay in touch).

  147. Darn! :'( This was the only good animation maker. I am still searching the internet for an animation maker like Sketch Star! There are no others even close to this good. What if you let the people decide if its good or not! I don’t understand what is so hard about keeping care of it! Someone tell me! PLEASE I AM SO SAD! :'(

  148. There are so many lovers of Sketch Star why are you aking it away! Please don’t get rid of it! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

  149. If Sketch Star were gone, where would I animate for FREE? Sketch Star was the exordium of my creativity, unleashed when I was a kinchin. Despite DevianArt being a good option, it doesn’t have the nostalgic feel of happiness, splendiferousness and potential Sketch Star ever had. Please don’t close this down.

  150. after all the billions of comments i agree sketch star is the first site for me to make animations i cant find ANYWHERE else to make animations at all come on people KEEP IT I LOVE SKETCH STAR

  151. i am sorry to hear that sketch star is going to close . im sure sketchy is tired after helping everybody do there animations and sketches. it is hard to look after and give maintenance to sketchy and sketch star.

  152. pleas pleas don’t take it away it was cool and it helps you to draw cartoons and helps you at school so pleas don’t tack it away there is millions of fans out there don tack it away :[

  153. hey follow me ai deviantart: freda27 and on pinterest : Frida Ramir3z thnx to all plz follow Me :) i luv u

  154. Why does Skeatch Star have to go!?!
    Skeatch Star is the only place where i can actually make DECENT animations!
    I looked up Deviantart a little while ago and i do not like it!
    Goodnight Skeatchy and sweet dreams, i hope you’ve woken up and got ready to help with the animations and reedem your title as: Skeatchy the Skeatch Star Boy!
    Wake up soon!

  155. Why!? WHY!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M SAARAPRIL AND I LOVE MAKING ANIMATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1ONE!!!1!!!!!!! WHY IS IT CLOOOOOSSIIINNNNNNGGG?!?!?!?!?! :C

  156. I LOVED sketch star and I hope that it comes back, I found it by mistake and i was addicted to it and i don’t know what to play. I will miss sketchy :(
