    "We celebrate a day of peace.
    A day of harmony.
    A day of joy we can all share together joyously.
    A day that takes us through the darkness.
    A day that leads us into might.
    A day that makes us want to celebrate the light.
    A day that brings the
    promise that one day, we'll be free to live, to laugh,
    to dream, to grow, to trust, to love, to be."



    Now that you'll all probably kill me for posting the lyrics to the song Leia sings in the Holiday Special, we'll move onto the Challenge. :p

    Each month we will post up four topics on different themes that people can choose from. You can submit drawings, paintings, posters, collage, photo-manipulation... whatever you're inspired to do.

    Here are the previous Fan Art Challenges:
    November 2005
    October 2005
    July 2005
    June 2005
    April 2005
    March 2005
    February 2005
    January 2005
    December 2004
    October 2004

    This is not a contest, and everyone is welcome to post responses to this thread, regardless of whether you've ever posted anything in this forum. Please don't be nervous or discouraged, because all of us would love to see your fanart!

    Here are the topics for December:

    DECEMBER FAN ART CHALLENGE:

    Characters:Chewbacca or Qui-Gon Jinn
    Scene:Anakin and Padme's Waterfall picnic(AOTC) or The Battle of Hoth (ESB)
    Thing: An original speeder or land vehicle design
    Fun: Your favorite Star Wars character(s) in a winter setting or holiday scene. And bonus points if you can turn it into a Christmas card. :p

    The Usual Few Notes:

    -Please post your images in this thread so we can have them all collected in one area, but of course you're also allowed to post them in your own artwork threads.


    -You can submit fanart for one topic, or do all of them. It is up to you.


    -Comments for everyone's artwork should also be posted in this thread. Even if you're not participating yourself, your comments are more than welcome.


    -If you have suggestions for future topics, please PM them to me or post them in the Artist's Lounge Social Thread.


    That's it. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of great artwork and hopefully we'll see some amazing pieces. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post 'em here.

    The deadline for this challenge is January 1st./>/>/>

    Vanyoda, that is fantastic!![face_laugh] Beautiful picture. What are those animals that are pulling Yoda's sleigh? Are they the animals that Obi-Wan rides over to the Lar's house at the end of ROTS?

    Wonderful Christmas rendering!!

    Here's my entry for my readers - based on the characters from my EU/AU stories :D

    [image=http://smicketysmom.bravepages.com/Es%20Art/Star%20Wars/DE%20Clan%20Xmas%20Final%20Card.jpg]

    Characters from L->R: Top: Han Solo Leia Organa-Solo
    Bottom: Marxx Racees, Jaina Solo-Racees, Jacen Solo, Raven Racees-Solo, Tenel Ka & Anakin Solo :D

    (Yes, confusing cast names - guess you need to read my stories to understand the relationships 8-}

    Edit:

    VanYoda

    That's such an awesome card! Great job! :D

    Nice Christmas card PLJ. I know they are characters from your AU fic, but from right to left can you tell me who they are supposed to represent. I know Han and Leia, of course. :)

    [face_laugh] Great stuff so far, everyone!

    And how did that Luke card end up here again? :p

    PLJ, your link isn't working for me. I just get a box with a line through it.

    Very nice card! And you picked the Solo family too! :D

    It's great to finally see some real-life models for some of the characters. I really like it! Good job!

    New to the forums here but very old to the web site. I miss the old Holiday Wallpaper contests. Looking at the pictures from the FIDM Fan Day Gallery, I was inspired by one of the pictures to create a wallpaper in the tradition of the old contests. So here you go!

    Welcome to the boards, FattyMac! When I first saw your icon I thought I was demoted for a moment. :oops:

    Anyway, I agree with you about the old contests. I used to enjoy checking out all the entries and was tempted to enter them, but I didn't have PS or any computer programs like that at the time. :p

    I love your concept. The sense of depth is really nice with the window there. And of course, it conveys the feeling of the holidays quite well. Nice job! :D

    I loved the old contests, too! I was pretty new to digital art myself at the time, so I know what you mean- I never entered, either.

    Anyway, I thought I'd take the postcard idea and run with it...

    Aw, glad you like it, PLJ!

    Nice one, there-- ROTS/ROTJ ideas can produce some pretty depressing holiday cards, huh? :p

    oh what a fun idea! The entries are so wonderful!

    I'm working in Photoshop to see what I can come up with :)

    PLJ, beautiful card. But as I read the text I just had to think:

    "Love this Holiday Season, even if you are separated from the ones you love most....BECAUSE YOU KILLED THEM!!!"

    LOL

    Sorry, I was touched by the beautiful sentimental words, and at the same time I was thinking, "Yeah, he is separated from the love of his life because he Force strangled his pregnant bride.":rolleyes:

    Great, pic though. LOL.

    Ooo...nice job with the emotional value with these last two. The Force Ghosts was a really good idea and I love the wording to the one with Anakin and Padme.

    Great job, ShrunkenJedi and PadmeLeiaJaina! :D
