Welcome!

The TRDL R3 Weekly Jam here on dA is a spin-off from Third Rail Design Lab's R3 Forum www.trdlcomics.com and www.trdlcomics.com/r3

The particulars:
- The jams are announced each Sunday
- There are Character or Theme Jams
- Subjects are completely open to artist interpretation: do a drawing from canon, or redesign at will!
- All jams REMAIN OPEN INDEFINITELY; you can populate older jams with new work at any time.
- You can submit 3 character or theme subjects to me by email, PM, etc and the suggestions will go in the pot.

The Process:
You can either submit your art to your own gallery and then add it to our group from there, or submit directly to :icontrdl-r3-weeklyjam: but go ahead and just drop the art into the Featured folder. I'll copy it into the Weekly Jam folder in question for you. I will leave a copy in Featured for about a month, and then replenish. SO the art will always be in a Weekly Jam folder, and will be in Featured for the first month, more or less.

And don't forget to offer jam character or theme requests, either to me privately here on DA or on the R3 Forum: www.trdlcomics.com/r3

NEW: A spreadsheet of all R3 Challenge threads to date can be found here:

Look for the character you want to add and you may find an existing challenge to use...

This week's R3 Challenging Art Challenge is our annual Vlad Fiks Memorial Noir Jam. Our dear friend and collaborator Vlad passed away seven years ago, but continues to influence my work and process every time I draw. He continues to be missed, and we host this annual jam in his honor. Vlad loved the noir style, so this is your opportunity to do something in that style: either noir imagery, techniques or even just something that inspires you from the pulp work from the 40s... whatever you do, I'm sure would have loved it. Here's to Vlad; let's see some cool art!


:::

The R3 Art Challenge runs weekly but remains open indefinitely. It can be found on the Third Rail Design Lab R3 Forum here: trdlcomics.com/r3/viewforum.ph…
And on DeviantArt in the TRDL R3 WeeklyJam group here: trdl-r3-weeklyjam.deviantart.c…
The complete list of jams can be found here: bit.ly/17S60xQ

sure! Check out :icontrdl-r3-weeklyjam: when you have time. It's a weekly art jam that's actually been running since 2005, and on dA now for a few years. Old and new work is accepted, and all jams remain open so you can add to the current one or any older one. Nice and easy. The intention is to inspire the other members of the group, try your hand at drawing characters you've never touched before, warm-ups before your other projects, redesign exercises, whatever motivates you as an artist... hope to see you there!

Man I keep drawing characters at the wrong time. Never when the jam is going. I guess I should pay more attention from now on.

The jams are ALWAYS open. Old and new works can be added, for current past jams. Just like it is on R3. It's always been this way. Just add the pics to the Featured folder and Ill sort them accordingly...
