Hello Glitzville! We're all ready to get started with our first event, the Create-a-Team art jam!
An art jam encourages group members to draw along a certain theme without the pressure of it being a competition. Although there will be no prize, we hope that using your creativity and seeing how others interpret the jam will be reward enough. Eclipse-of-42 and I decided that a contest would not be suitable for this event, as we want you to be able to create the team you want without worrying if it's outstanding enough to win a competition.
In this jam, you'll be creating your own teams of Glitz Pit fighters! This will be our January event, and although, since it's not a competition, there is no actual deadline, you should try to be done by February so that we can kick off other things such as role-plays and the fan-character tournament, in which you can use the teams that you're creating now.
Here are some guidelines.
Create a single fighter, or a team of up to four.
Please use already-existing species from the Mario gameworld. There are quite enough to choose from. This does include humans.
Please create all original characters and don't use an official Mario character. We want you to contribute something new, rather than just letting everyone know of your great love for Dimentio by having him somehow wind up on your team.
Come up with a name for your team! And, if you want, a "nickname" (for instance, Rawk Hawk is the "feral nuclear reactor"). Jolene needs something to announce to the roaring fans!
With these in mind, get creative! You can draw us a picture of your team, but please describe them in your comments so we can get a good idea of how they act and fight, not just how they look. Tell us why they've come to the Glitz Pit and what they want to get out of it!
If you prefer writing to drawing, feel free to send a story our way! Ideally, it should creatively incorporate all of the suggestions above, but in any way you wish. Will you tell the story of how they came together and made it to Glitzville? Conduct an interview with them? Describe a fight in which they took place? It's up to you.
When you're done, submit your entry here to the club and we'll add it to a special "Custom Teams" folder.
Have fun, and let us know if you have any questions!
