    The EU Challenge (EUC/FanArt Competition) Season 2

    Due to popular demand, @Adalia-Durron and myself are proud to present the return of the EU Challenge 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.

    Welcome!

    The Fan Art Challenge returns yet again with another special edition: The EU Challenge - Season 2. 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 original Fan Art Challenges format and to @Adalia-Durron for coordinating on this cross over opportunity!

    This design of surik is based on the 1st. concept art of surik i saw in wookieepedia & the character appearance i chose playing KOTOR II..so its not based on her appearance in SWTOR game...
    this is Dark Side Surik Choke/Crush ing atris ,taking her revenge...
    done with fineliners(black & color), color pencils & PS finish.

    i usually like to use text in my drawings sometimes just a title ,sometimes ALOT like in this case...some may like it,many may hate it,but i like to give them a "poster" feel
    plus i wasn't sure about the hilts so i made them up...sorry for any incontinuity!;)

    Newbie (Noob?) here...I was somewhat active back in the old days, but I have no idea what my name on the forums was.
    I've been lurking since the big announcement last year, and decided to re-register to join this challenge.

    I'll take #11: Bo Katan if that's alright.

    Nice drawing, @Darth Loocas. Aalya looks mad! Was she dark? I don't think I know her back story. Wasn't she the Jedi who was killed on that planet full of big flowers in ROTS?

    thank you,
    yes she was killed on felucia,but it says "WHAT IF..." at the upper left,cuz' she was once seduced to take the dark path by Anzati Dark Jedi Volfe Karkko ,but quinlan vos ,her master , fought her & brought her back to the light
    so i thought i draw her fully pledged to the dark side...as if she wasnt saved at all.
    i loved to see a dark aayla...

    btw if u're interested in her biography check this: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Aayla_Secura

    Thanks for the information. I only knew her from people drawing her here. I don't know much about the time before the Original Trilogy.

    i dont know if its ok to speak our mind at this point in the competition,but with never dying respect to all our friends who put their works here...IMO so far CO's work's the best! im rooting for CO from now on...way to go,CO![face_dancing]

    although i have to say we all have different styles & all are good in their own right,& hard to compare with each other ,which is the beauty of this contest & art in general.
    but i just couldnt help it,CO's fay is a real eyecandy!
