Jams from Skratch

Yo SkratchJammers!

Glad so many of you joined in on the action for the Rival schools Jam!

We really loved what some of you have come up with, and really appreciate those of you who took time to really work in the feel of Rival Schools.. Not only in your designs but also in the backstories. So we are going to extend the jam by 1 Week! so any of you who were struggling to upload before the deadline, Now's the time to put pencil to pad or whatever your weapons of choice!

The next SkratchJam topic After this WILL be connected to this jam.. So if you want your character to be included in the next theme you have one week more to get them in.

New Deadline! --> (( 11:59pm, Monday 7th September, 2015 PST ))

Also for those who submit going forward... Please Note that it is important that you include themes from the various schools in your designs and backstories. It really helps to make them feel a part of the game series.

Happy Skratchingz!


------------------------------Original Post Below----------------------------------


Onto the details:
As we did with the Street fighter jam of 2014, we shall do again with Capcom's School Themed Fighting Game Rival Schools
Lets get on with the rules!


*UPDATE: PLEASE show indication within your submitted character design of the school they're attending. Whether it be Sports Jersey, School Colours and School Emblem.

* This new game takes place 14 years after Project Justice (the last in the chronological timeline and it's game release of 2001)

* Your character can be either an update of an already existing Rival Schools character (now a Faculty member) or an entirely new character (student from the same school as a character from a previous game).

* If you do decide to update an already existing character from the Rival Schools series, make sure the character actually looks to have aged at least 14 years from their last appearance.

* Don't know what school to pick for your character? Get to know more about the schools at the following link :…

* If you do decide to update an already existing Rival Schools character, you MUST include a URL to their current appearance.

* We will not accept a redressing of an OC of yours. The character Must be new to this jam.

* Full Colour, Full Body & Completely from Scratch (No bases)

* Include a brief back story to accompany the character, stating where they're from and even what sort of fighting style the use.

* you must use this template provided with you submission (including the specific school logo as provided in .PSD file)

* The 'Seijyun High school Logo' wasn't included in the .PSD file, so here's the logo in case your character is from this school Seijyun-High-School by theCHAMBA

* Submit to the "Rival Schools JAM" Folder.

* You may submit more than 1 entry, if you like. But make sure they each hold up to a strong standard to each other!

* ENJOY!!!!!

Jam ends on:
11:59pm, Monday 31st August, 2015 PST

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.
Mustang-Mach1 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015  Student General Artist
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? 
JoeMDavis Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Are sure the issue is with your pen? Have you checked on your drivers?
