Because of Rose City Comic Con, we shall be extending this jam! So Huzzah

The Beginning of a new small series of Jams we'll be doing up for the next few weeks.

'Battle the Undead'

The world is ending, the undead have returned and Evil arises.
But who will stop this Evil from fully devouring the living world?

With part 2 of this jam, you are to create the 'Rival' OR 'Love-interest along with the 'Villain' of the story.

Be Aware of ALL the Popular Zombie-Culture. Think of it like you're designing characters for a Live-Action Movie. (should be somewhat grounded in our reality)


- Download the Following Template and replace the figures with your own creations Battle The by theCHAMBA

- Full Colour (Traditional or Digital)

- Full Body

- Illustrate them holding their accessory of choice (Primary survival weapon)

- Submit to the "Battle the" Folder

Jam ends on: 11:59pm (PST), 25th September, 2014

What's This Place All About???

:iconskratchjams: is where the lads of :iconskratchwork: organise jams that are open to the Public.
Participation and Contributions are open to anyone.

As with the SKRATCHWORK crew, we set limits for ourselves to push our creativity further. This is necessary to challenge us to do things that we normally wouldn't do; to think outside the box and execute it.

The concept of a JAM is simple. Though it's not exactly what you see some of the SKRATCHWORK crew do occasionally (i.e. 10-15 minute timed JAMS); it's on a bigger scale. You have 5 days (4 because we're a day behind on this one, heh) to draw up your illo! This means you can go all out within the restrictions! If you mess up, don't submit it and just try again. It's more than enough to get you involved and drawing. :) Everyone will submit one piece a week, and since we're all busy with life, work, etc., that's more than enough time to get involved. :)

At the end of every week on the weekend, there is a special challenge called the Weekend Challenge that one of the SKRATCHWORK crew members will probably think up. This will usually be some type of looney idea that you have to come up with and draw. For example, if we were to say two words "Bottle" and "Bird", you'd have to draw something related to those two words/subjects. So in that case, I might come up with a drawing of Starfox's Falco drinking a bottle of booze, and theCHAMBA would draw a bottle with wings and a beak. It's probably the most fun part of each week, as the variety of ideas off those crazy concepts will be pretty awesome.

Every four weeks will have a rotating theme where we (the SKRATCHWORK crew) will pick a special theme or a character from that theme within that week. The first week's theme will usually be Cartoons/Anime. The second week's would be Movies/Gaming. Third will be Comics/Manga week. And the last week is always OC Week. Other than OC Week, the themes are subject to change every once in a while.

At the end of each month, we will then have OC Week. This will be a JAM on an interpretation of a member's original character picked from a batch of submitted OCs that members will submit. Please note, you can't join this group just to submit OCs. YOU MUST BE ACTIVE FOR YOUR OC TO BE PRESENTED FOR OC WEEK. Meaning that you have to participate regularly (and we can keep track of that, heh) and not sparingly. If you have one submission of some lame lazy chicken scratch under your belt, and you have submitted an OC, you're less likely to get your character picked. Also, each member can submit only ONE OC at a time. If your OC has been picked, you can submit another one in the pool of OCs to pick from. Don't submit more than one OC at a time in the outset. We'll only pick one of them.

The group is just starting out, so once we get *Super Group* status, we can have polls of what characters you want to see in weekly jams, countdown timers to remind you when the current JAM is ending, and extra shiny stuff.

So, I submitted something 25 minutes late, but this is because my power went out for a little while, impeding my progress and preventing me from getting it out on time. Hopefully, this is taken into consideration. Thanks anyway!

Sorry about that! Many of the admins are still busy with other things (conventions, comics and commissions), so things have been a little quiet. Looking into getting something for the beginning of July. Hang in there!
