Jams from Skratch
OC Pool#4!!!

We realized due to the 'Thanksgiving Day' folks might be strapped for time to work on anything,
So we've decided to extend the submission date!

And that means Just that people.. An ORIGINAL character. So hopefully this time we wont get a bunch of fan arts of random things.
If you don't own that character, don't submit it.
Fan characters are a no no.

We don't want to see Naruto with pink hair and you tell me its an OC... it isnt... so dont.
If you have an older OC (one that you've not submitted into either of the previous OC jams) then you can submit that.
BUT it hase to be a brand new illustration of that character.

IF you submitted to the first OC:Reboot jam or the 2nd or 3rd OC jams, you can submit another OC for THIS one. BUT only the one.
If you missed out on the first times we did this, now's your time!


* Must be NEW artwork!

* Has to be done using the template

* Has to be an original character

* Full Color (digital or traditional)

* You can not use a base that you've downloaded online as the base for your 'OC' It has to be 100% drawn by you. Make that part of the challenge.

* Only One Submission per person.

* Submit to the "OC Pool  4" Folder

* ENJOY!!!!!

(You may only contribute in this jam if you've participated in at least ONE other jam before. We shall open up another OC jam folder down the road, so there will be future chances to submit an OC later on, once you've participated from the next jam onwards)

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.
