Hi everyone - it's time for our final challenge of 2017 - the Group Project!

Below are links to a puzzle-piece. This is what it looks like, and you can copy it from here or use one of the links to download a file.

We're not really making a jigsaw, but the shape means that our individual artworks will fit together. The idea is to each fill the puzzle piece with anything at all - a drawing, colours, patterns, a portrait - whatever you like. Either as digital art or print it off and fill it with traditional drawing or painting - it's all good. Post your completed puzzle piece to the community when it's done, and when we do the Roundup list, we'll also post all the pieces fitted together into one overall Group Project. We're not trying to make a coherent overall picture so the variety of the different works will be interesting. You can turn the puzzle piece on its side as well, as some pieces will need to fit in that way.

The gray area is just to remind you to keep your art to the inside of the puzzle piece, as the outer part will be deleted when we combine them all. You can get rid of the gray if you like - or one download option has a white background. Depending on how many people take part we'll probably have to make each piece a little smaller for the final combined work, so that it's not too huge. We'll figure that out when we get there. 

This challenge runs right up to New Year's day, to mark the end of the year - happy drawing, everyone! :)

Me too! I like that you left it completely open regarding the content. That way it's sort of going tobe a representation of our community after we put it together. :-)

Hey since I will work in traditional media, so I print the puzzle piece as an outline. Do I have to keep the size or could I work on a bigger format? I really want to do something in watercolour but I can’ print on that paper, it’s too thick. I’m thinking of copying the puzzle piece in a bigger format onto the paper. How large should the resized (after scanning) piece be so it fits?

Guys I made such a dumb mistake. I just finished my puzzle piece, wanted to admire that the watercolour did what it was supposed to do.... and then,.. noticed that I forgot the e from the community name (which I put very prominently in the middle). Argh I want to kick myself!

ETA it now reads drawsome

Oh and btw, did you mean that we have to cut out the puzzle piece form before we post or could I leave it as a square and you’ll do it anyway when you fit them all together?

Great that's a relief because I don't know of any simple way to cut out such a shape with my graphics program (there probably is one).

Well then I’ll post later tonight. We could see it as a statement against perfectionism.... still want to kick myself though. :-)
