    [blockquote]"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."[/blockquote]

    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:

    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:

    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

    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
