First of all, I would like to thank [link=http://boards.theforce.net/UserPages/Profile.aspx?user=Commander-DWH]Commander-DWH[/link] for the wonderful idea and collaborating with me on this project. Your hard work is much appreciated! [hr] In response to building a better relationship between Fan Fiction and Fan Art, I am proud to announce our first collaborative activity, The OC Challenge! Just as the name suggests, the idea of this challenge is for artists to team up with fan fic writers to bring to life either an original character from a story or create a story for an original character an artist may have created. For more information on OCs in the fan fiction universe, please see [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_fiction_resource/b10304/25562370/p1/?2131]this[/link] thread over in Fan Fiction Resource. How will this work? It's quite simple. This challenge thread will operate very similar to the Dare Challenges over in fan fic. There will be a sign-up list for interested parties located for artists in this thread and another for authors in their designated thread over in fan fic. At the end of the sign-up period you will be randomly paired with an author and your match will be sent to you via PM. Here's where the creative process begins! It's now up to you and your match to swap ideas and create a piece of artwork or a story based on the original characters you have to work with. Here is the sign-up list for those who are interested(please add more numbers if you run out): 1. 2. 3. 4. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to ask! Last day to sign up will be Monday, April 20th.
