Jams from Skratch
New JAM!!!
(apologies for the delay, life does that but we're back!)


*Depict yourself as if you were in the Zootopia Universe ( Trailer for reference : )
*No Shoes/ No Hair, but clothes are good!
*MAMMALS ONLY! As per what was shown in the trailer
*With the certain animal you choose for yourself, try to keep within an appropriate scale (height/size) as shown in example and in trailer.
*Also as this is a version of yourself, keep within a realism of who you are.
*try to avoid the more humanoid body structure. The designs are essentially if animals were more toon-ish and standing on 2 legs.
*Submit your Zootopia piece using this template (download the PSD file) and upload it into the 'ZOOTOPIA' folder.
*Traditional or Digital, but Full Colour and Must use template

JAM ends:

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.

Can somebody answer a question for me about my Wacom Tablet pen?

I can try and answer your question.

Ok thanks c:
So my pen is acting up. I think it got smashed or something. It will work some days, then it will just randomly start to lag while I use it.
Im wondering if I can fix it or will a pen for a different wacom tablet work like the create pen?

Are sure the issue is with your pen? Have you checked on your drivers?

i have a suggestion for a Jam!!!, since Avengers is still sweeping out the box office, why dont we get a chance to assemble our own avengers, just like the Unite the Seven, the jam would consist on a "A" assemble template were each contestant will have to depict any character from the Marvel universe, redesign to fit the avengers team...the catch?, it can't be any of the heroes we have already seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that means: Cap, Iron man, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Vision, Nick Fury, Winter Soldier, Loki,War Machine, Falcon, Iron Patriot, Lady Sif, The Warriors 3,Hulk, Abomination, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan, THanos, Ultron, Malekith and Spidey...although im not including the Fox Franchises, Daredevil, Elektra, the Xmen and FF, i think Spidey is too much of a given, the whole point of the jam is to dig up those lesser known characters or the classic ones that seem forgotten by the movies....

Ok, thats my pitch for a Jam, think would be fun!!!

Thanks, keep up the awesome work!!!
