    Welcome to the Offical Fan Art Challenge! Each month, artists of all skill levels will be able to choose between a list of topics in six categories based on the "Essential Guide" books(Characters, Aliens/Species, Droids, Vehicles, Location and a Wild Card). A wide range of media will be accepted including, but not limited to, graphite/ink drawings, paintings, photo-manips, digitial paintings/drawings, collages and posters. It's really whatever you're inspired to do. Be creative! If the subject is a TIE Fighter, don't just draw a TIE Fighter, try to incorporate it into a scene that's interesting. Or perhaps you would rather take the Alliance's view on the TIE. The possibilities are endless!

    *NEW*
    As an extra twist, the Challenge will now be considered as a contest or a game. At the end of each quarter(Fall;September-November, Winter;December-February, Spring;March-May, Summer;June-August), all pieces of artwork submitted during that particular time period will be up for nomination for the "Art Challenge Fan Favorite Award." If your artwork makes it through the nomination process and wins the final vote, you will be awarded colors of your choosing and a title for a week to sport around the entire JC. Good luck to all participants!

    Past Winners:

    1. Fall 2006 - academygrad88; Boba Fett and Family
    2. Winter 2007 - DarthMikus; Quinlan Vos
    3. Spring 2007 - BIEREN; Darth Vader
    4. Summer 2007 - Basement24; Humiliation of Defeat
    5. Fall 2007 - ART2-D2; Artoo on Halloween
    6. Winter 2008 - COULD BE YOU!

    Um, I'm not sure if I'm doing this right, but I have a piece of fan art I'd like to enter into the challenge. It fits in the Wild Card category, and it's a Christmas card sent by the Skywalkers.

    Very nice! I like Padme's face the most.

    Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to sit this month out. Too much on my plate. Oh well, such as it is...

    It fits perfectly into the challenge, JediXManSerenaKenobi, nicely done! It's very cute and works great as a Christmas card! :)

    Sorry to hear that, B24. Good luck with all your endeavors and perhaps we can see more from you next month. ;)

    I would like to thank everyone who participated in last month's challenge despite the busy holiday season! You really produced some amazing work and I look forward to January's entries!

    With that in mind, the January challenge is now up! :)

    Another great oil painting, obi-wan! :)

    Nice texture on the rocks in the background and capturing the feel of the clothing! Thanks for posting it! :)

    Here's a drawing of Guri I just did. I also might draw the Twi'leks and maybe Mace, too. Love the categories this time!

    This one's titled: First Tears

    [image=http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee31/Serena_Kenobi/IMG_4217.jpg]


    And as you can probably guess by the title, it's Guri crying for the first time. I may choose to do another Guri... she's fun to draw.

    Hope you like!

    Well, I've been super busy this month, and last night was the first time I've managed to drop by for January, so I just saw the monthly challenge subjects o_0

    Given that one of them is "Twi'leks", how could I *not* put something up there? Unfortunately, 24 hours is not sufficient time for me to create a new image, and I'm going to be away from my computer for the next 72 hours. So in the spirit of participating in the theme, and this is my standard subject of choice, I put forth a recent image of mine, "Trendy Twi'leks":

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and want to start a fan art thread, so I thought I should introduce myself by entering the fan art challenge.:D

    Here's my entry for the valentine's day category: Jaina and Zekk in LOTF Tempest. I loved this scene, Jaina finally gets a taste of her own medicine!

    [image=http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii98/glitbiter/JZTempest.jpg]

    Please zoom in if it looks a bit pixelated. My computer resizes it to 91%:confused:

    Everyone's entries are looking fabulous :D I especially like TY_Ordell's Leia - you have a very interesting style. Leia looks very cool.

    Edit: Got the hyperlink to work.. after four tries. I'm hopeless, lol[face_blush]

    Welcome, Glitbiter and awesome artwork! Your style reminds me of a fellow artist here at the JC going by the name of angel_gidget. If you're interested, you can take a look at her work here. With that said, I love the way you depicted the characters and came up with your own unique interpretation. The coloring is also nicely done! Overall, nice work! :)

    And I hope you don't mind, but I went ahead and corrected the link in your post. Here is the correct markup code for future reference:

    HanSolo29: Thanks so much for correcting the link, and for your kind words [:D]

    My style was inspired by the Legacy comics - the art in them is superb, so vibrant and colourful, and manga comics. Thanks for the link to Angel_Gidget's thread, there is some very good artwork there. And you're right, our styles are similar!
