    Here are the topics for February:

    FEBRUARY FAN ART CHALLENGE:

    Thanks go to AG88 for coming up with this month's topics!
    Characters:Wedge Antilles or Ben Skywalker
    Scene:Favorite Scene from the EU or The Battle of Coruscant (ROTS)
    Thing: Using an army recruitment poster past or present, redesign it so that it fits the SW theme. If it's a more obscure poster, please include the original poster with your submission.
    Fun: Since Valentine's Day is this month, create a romantic piece that depicts characters or a scene from SW.

    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 February 28th./>/>

    You're allowed to repost it, but like jace said, there's no real challenge in that. However, you may do what you wish. :)

    PLJ!!!!!:eek: :eek:

    [face_shame_on_you] [face_peace]

    I still cringe when I see that kissing scene on Hoth. Yuck. And I remember when I was a kid and first saw ESB I thought, "Yea!!" Back then I wanted Luke and Leia to hook up. Of course, that was before I found out they were siblings.

    Chilla, nice wall paper, but I think the Wedge on the left is a little too dark.

    Great job guys!

    Okay, granted it ain't much. But I thought for my first piece in the Fan Art Challenge I'd go with something simple.

    I've had the base for that banner lying around for a long time, it happens to be one of my favorite pictures for some reason. Anyway, I added the quote (which comes to mind when I see this image for some reason) and the flowers. I don't know if I'm satisfied with the roses being on it... but they seemed to work. :p

    Well, I think that's all my comments. Thanks folks. :D

    Giolon05, is it my imagination, or are her breasts getting bigger with each rendering you do of her? Is that the normal size for Victoria, or are you tweeking it? ;)

    Great job though!

    Daru's breast size has not changed for nearly 6 months now. Perhaps you're merely seeing what you want to see. ;) And no, that's not the default figure of V3. You can see V3's (mostly) default figure in the Ellie image I did for princess_melissa.

    Thanks! :)

    I haven't died~! I've just been uninspired. But I'm back (from outer space? o_O) and I come bearing Ben Skywalker art. :) I'd place him at around 18 here. Yes, that is supposed to be Luke's [Anakin's] old lightsaber that he's holding. His hand is a bit wonky, but I'm ignoring it for now. I haven't read much of the NJO (I'm slowly working on it), but I do have an issue of Star Wars Tales in which Ben was featured.
