    The EU Challenge (EUC/FanArt Competition)

    With the return to the new boards, comes a new challenge and this one is special. I have been in discussions with @Adalia-Durron over at the Expanded Universe Community and together we have came up with a new challenge… a competition for our two forums.

    The subject matter will be the Expanded Universe, though with the large collection of wonderful characters, it makes it hard to select which ones to add to the list… so we'll leave that up to you to make the choice of which ones that will appear on the list.

    So head on over to the poll in the EUC and vote for which character you think should deserve the honour to be featured in the Art Challenge. Once the poll ends, I'll post up the winners and the art side of the challenge begins.

    I just voted and I announced my plans to enter over in its corresponding thread.

    As for your first born... I don't have the room in my apartment.

    I'm putting it out there that I will be participating too. This does sound like a great opportunity and a lot of fun.

    Thank you @Adalia-Durron for posting the final list, I think we will have fun with them.

    Thank you for your patience, I will get the thread up in the morning. For the moment everyone may use the time to work out which character/number you would want to work on the most. :)

    With two jobs and in need of a third teaching position, I think I can find some quality time for painting in the weekend. My husband is very busy with Formula One races and I cannot go to Germany to meet old friends. So, yes, I think I want to give it a try. (By the way, where can I post my Beast from Beauty and the Beast? You remember that contest? I already started and have him finished after the weekend.)

    Welcome!

    The Fan Art Challenge returns yet again as special edition: The EU Challenge. The main idea of the challenge is not to be a contest to beat out your fellow artists, but an outlet in which we can all grow and explore new ideas and possibilities together. So, here we go...


    What is the Official Fan Art Challenge?

    A place for artists and fans alike to participate in quarterly themed drawing exercises.

    Who can participate?

    The challenge is open to anyone and all skill levels. It doesn't matter if you can paint like Picasso or you can only draw a simple stick figure, you're more than welcomed to participate.

    How does the challenge work?

    Any medium is accepted and as I said above, all skill levels are welcomed. You are free to submit a simple sketch or a finished piece of art.

    The layout has changed for this version of the challenge:

    The theme is characters of the Expanded Universe, a choice of twelve candidates has already been decided by a poll in the EU Community. To participate, you choose which one you would like to take on and post the number from between 1 to 12. If a choice that you had wanted to take on has been taken, you may also select that choice. You may choose to do a second one however you must complete and post your first choice before you can take on another.

    You will have until the end of the year to complete and post your artwork/s.

    Where should I post my challenge entries?

    Right here to this thread. I want to keep all the entries in one place, but as always, you're more than welcomed to post them to your individual threads as well.

    Are critiques allowed?

    The short answer is yes. Let's remember to keep things within the TOS and to keep things positive and constructive. Critiques are meant to help an artist, not tear into them like there is no tomorrow.

    How will voting work?

    At the end of the time period, all the entries will be gathered together and voted on by your peers. This is not meant to be a serious contest, but a way to give back to the community for all the time and effort you put into this place. The entry with the highest amount of hits at the end of the voting period will be awarded something special.

    If you have any questions or would like to suggest a topic for a future challenge, please don't hesitate to shoot me a PM!

    Special thanks to @HanSolo29 for developing the Fan Art Challenges and to @Adalia-Durron for helping organise this cross over opportunity!

    I think I'm going to start off with Ben Skywalker. The artwork available out there for him has always bothered me. With the exception of Chris Trevas, it's not very good at all.

    I may kick things off with Kyp Durron and move onto Ooryl Qrygg. Or simply work on both simultaneously. Either way, those two are at the top of my drawing list.
