Ginkgo Jam
Ginkgo Jam Number 8
Self Portrait in Style
Initiator: grace
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to draw a self portrait, but there's a twist. You must do the drawing in the style of a well-known artist (at least well-known enough that we can Google the name and find an image for comparison). Try to stay as true as possible to the style of the artist in question as that will be a large part of how the contest entries are judged. Enter as many times as you like but please spend at least an hour on each effort and include the name of the artist you are emulating in your posting title.

Ginkgo Jam Number 7
The Joy of Giving and Receiving
Initiator: suzie
I've taken a little while to think of a Jam that would work this time of year, yet not be tacky or just festive. I would like to see drawings of gifts you have received, not necessarily at Christmas. It could be something from a long time ago that means a lot to you, or from someone no longer with us that brings lovely memories of that person. You may have just received the most wonderful Christmas gift ever and want to draw that. I thought a twist to this could be that you may include the gift of love/friendship/happiness (only nice things, please) and perhaps draw a non-abstract interpretation of the feelings the gift evoked in you. You could draw the gift giver, or your own expression on receiving the gift. An inclusive description or explanation is also required, so we can understand what the draw is showing us. You may enter as many times as you like and it's not necessarily going to be the most detailed or perfect draw that will win. So, go to it and enter!

Ginkgo Jam Number 6
Create a Critter
Initiator: Opium
I decided to have this jammie include one of my favorite things to paint, animals. But that would be boring, so we're going to give it a little fun spin! Take two or more animals, and create one critter! Feel free to use humans as an animal even. Now for the really fun part, rules; has to be at least two animals, can't already be a made up creature (i.e. mermaids, gryphons, etc) and you need to spend at least thirty minutes on it. Deadline is until December 19th, which gives you three weeks... feel free to submit as many times as you like!

Ginkgo Jam Number 5
Arbitrary Colours
Initiator: Grace
Okay, Ginkgoers, this contest will be to paint a landscape, portrait (animal portrait is fine, too) or still life using arbitrary colours. In other words, if you paint a banana, it can be any colour...other than yellow. Skin tones should not resemble any commonly worn by Earthlings, etc. Enter as many times as you like but please spend at least 30 minutes on each piece. Good luck and have fun!
