R23-B2 - Thanks for posting! Nice image, the creepy whispy green smoke is really cool.
hey guys and gals, although mesa barry barry sad that there've been only few contributions in the past days/weeks, I didn't manage to come up with any too, cuz university has begun again, and lazy days are over (one tear...)
but one of the four thingies (probably the HALLOWEEN one) shouldn't be too stressy, so I'm gonna start working on that.
Alrighty folks, time for the LAST ART CHALLENGE before going on HIATUS!
HALLOWEEN due Oct 31
Such fun! Knock yourselves out.
And to start getting y'all in the mood, here's a really silly thing. I'll refrain from the long-winded babbling tale of how this came to be.

hee hee hee....
OK everyone, make me proud.
Well, I have *something* for the Switcheroo. It's not new, but it's the closest thing I had laying around. I've been a little consumed with another project this week - for halloween! hooray! Actually, these characters were drawn for halloween a couple years ago - it's the New Hope characters dressed up as other star wars characters. So, not a true Switcheroo, but kinda close.... at least it's better than that droid thing I posted above!
Switcheroo - kindof
From left to right: C-3P0, Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, R2-D2.
Baroness! You drew those?! I love those pics! I saw them when they were up on TOS a couple of yrs ago. My kids and I spent hours one Friday night going through all the various/possible permutations and combinations.
My fave was probably Han in the Indy outfit. But I really loved them in the classic Halloween outfits. I really liked all the different backgrounds they had too.
I've checked out TOS every Halloween since then in the vain hope that they would do something like that again...
Wow Leela, you mean someone actually saw this, without me sending them the link first?! Cool!
<<My fave was probably Han in the Indy outfit.>> How could I resist?? I think my fave is Chewie in a pink bunny/elvis combo. But I also like the ideas involved with the Luke ones - him inside a Wampa suit was always really funny to me, or as frankenstein his right hand was stitched back on.
I always wanted to do another one, either add more costumes, or do another version with Episode 1 characters. Never happened. (Politics politics!)
It's still out there, if people want to see it:
We did make another flipbook though, with a tiny bit o' star wars in it - this one was a little more "educational":

Be sure to make Queen Amidala green.
Hey, BAR, I saw them too, a friend of mine sent me the Halloween E-card. And guess which costume variant he chose for Chewie: right, the Elvis suit plus pink bunny headgear! My definite
favourite, of course!
I should have realized the style similarities between the E-card and your artworks here in the first place...well, I'm a slow learner...

obihahn - your friend obviously has fantastic taste!
just kiddin'. funny.
So, anyone working on a Halloween pic for the Challenge? Nearly TWO whole weeks left to whip something up. 13 days - get a move on!
Now, I know, enquiring minds want to know, what, pray tell, does the mighty Baroness have in mind for her Halloween Spectular? Well, honestly, I've naught in my mind thus far. But I'm sure i'll think of something.... hopefully something creepy crawly cooky and spooky, maybe even a little ooky. (ain't the Addam's family the best?!)
Need more inspiration? Worn out your copy of Nightmare Before Christmas? Check out the bizarre and demented work of [link=http://www.goreyography.com/west/west.htm]Edmund Gorey[/link]. Wonderfully macabre. Fantastic stuff.
Okey-doke. Toodles chums.
Yesssssssssssssssss! I wanna be totally creeped out by the almighty Bar's horrifiying talents (sounds like something bad...duh!), and thus be inspired to work on a spooky, gory and goosebumpy (is there such a word in the English language?) contribution myself.
Or to put it another way: I need my behind kicked, because of THE SLACK!
Uh oh. Guess the pressure's on now!
OK Folks. Time for the shameless Art Challenge PLUG! Less than a week left to finish your Halloween Masterpiece!
Since I don't have mine done yet (but at least have the idea!), here's a little something to help you get in the proper Halloween Spirit. Sorry, it's not Star Wars-related - hope i don't get in trouble for posting it! Wait - they're all on Naboo, yeah that's it!
Anyway, here's the Halloween Card I made for this year:
WoW TheBalinakaBaroness your skills are amazing! I wish I could draw like that!
Baroness-Okay, now you're reeeeally scaring me! That piece is crazyily cool and disgustingly fabulous! Did you do that all in your ghoulish photoshop lab? I'm gonna go throw up now!
Yep, all done in my crazy evil scientist version of Photoshop 7.0 - lots of fun!
Halloween is just around the corner! Oh boy! (Love the current Sith look of the boards!)
Yep, that really is an amazing piece, mighty Baroness. Of course, I got an early preview of it, but I never tire of seeing it.
That's a riot, Baroness! I like the monster in the Raggedy Anne "costume"... he's my fave!
Bar: now that's the kind of sugar papa likes!
I feel inspired/buttkicked enough to make a similarly spooky contribution now.
but it's definitely not gonna be as cool as that piece of yours...I'm greatly impressed!
btw..."SITH COUNCIL"...scary stuff!
Hey everyone, here's my Halloween entry! What could by more freaky than the eyes of a Chiss?
Oh WOW Cheveyo!
Very cool - very creepy. I love the lighting, and your beautiful shading looks so great on the black.
thanks for posting!
Well sorry folks. I am the biggest Halloween Loser ever. Didn't get my Art Challenge done. You'll just have to imagine it!
I was going to draw the Fett's Trick-or-Treating, the catch - Post Battle of Geonosis. A pumpkin replaces Jango's Head as he accompanies his Boba trick or treating. I hadn't quite decided what level of "rotten" Jango had reached. Ewwww.
But here, it's not Star Wars, but in the Halloween theme:
I think, if you sort of squint, and stand upside down while looking at it, it kinda, sorta looks a little teeny tiny bit like Tarkin!
Happy Halloween Everyone!
OMG! That E-Card is great BB! ROFLMAO! The Grim Reaper as Bo Peep just kills me!
Well, I think everyone but Cheveyo wins a boo prize this year. You the man Cheveyo!
Hope everyone keeps showing up here at least just to browse and gab a little.
I want to ask you a question TheBalinakaBaroness, are you going to keep the thread open. I think it would be a good idea for people to come in, pic a topic that has been done before and post it here, so that you can do the one you enjoy most. What do you think?
Hee hee - thanks Kongzilla! I had a lot of fun drawing that thing. I had lists of tons more monster/costume combos, but couldn't fit them all in! Plus, after I painted the witch, it dawned on me, she should have been dressed up as Dorothy. Oh well. Live and Learn.
And yes - Cheveyo WINS! If there was a prize, Cheveyo would get it. That was a great illo.
odj_310388 - Yes - I'm definitely keeping the thread open. People can come post whenever they want, pick old topics, and post - do whatever. Here's how I updated the first post to the thread:
Welcome to the Fan Art Challenge!
Now officially on HIATUS until further notice.
No. The Art Challenge is not dead. It is just sort of "going away" for a little while. I'll bring it back when it seems there's a little more interest, and people have time to play.
In the meantime - feel free to browse. There's a lot a great art that has been produced and posted in here. Feel free to keep the thread alive - chat, post, pick old topics and post new art.
I'll still be around keeping an eye out. And I'll be updating the archive, but probably in a few weeks. Busy girl these days.
Thanks everyone who's participated. It's been a lot of fun!
Oh no! As soon as I get my free time back, the thread goes away for awhile!
Oh well...maybe I'll go back and do some that I missed until the thread starts up again!
Yeah, me too. Sorry I've been away awhile. No real excuse.
*weeps and sobs*
But hey, I still come here every week. Oh, although it's way too late, I want to share some kind of a SW HALLOWEEN image I just drew: [link=http://obihahn.tripod.com/obihahnstarwarsart/id7.html]New costume for the trooper...[/link]
Ha Ha !
