    Welcome to the Offical Fan Art Challenge! Each month, a single subject or category from the Star Wars universe will be chosen for artists of all skill levels to interpret. 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* - 2/6/09
    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. But wait! There's more! As an added bonus, the winning piece of artwork will also be created into an icon and uploaded onto the JC forums for all to see and use at their choosing. Good luck to all participants!

    1. Fall 2006 - academygrad88; Boba Fett and Family

    Hey all,

    With the conclusion of another year, I wanted to touch base with everyone on how you think the Art Challenge is run. I noticed a drop-off in activity in the challenge the past couple of months(that could be due to a slow-down in the boards in general) and I was curious if there was a reason for this.

    1) Is the challenge too repetitive and stale? What can be done to put a little more life back into the place and make it fresh again?

    2) What changes would you like to see? Are you satisfied with the current awards and voting?


    And of course, if you're happy on how things are running as is, let me know. But the goal here is to find ways to improve the challenge and promote more participation.

    I like the topics you've chosen so far. I would love to participate in every one but sometimes run out of time. I particulary enjoy the topics where you mix two things: SW and Halloween, etc.
    Also, just want to say thanks for all the work you do running the board. I appreciate the work and time you invest.

    There is nothing wrong with the topics, the challenges itself or the art thread.

    All who love and cheerish this place had had a busy time, esecially before Christmas.

    I would leave things as they are and would also cry out for help at the Newbie Party & the Ward again when we run out of voters.

    There is more interest in the great work and efford that people come up here with than you think. And you are a great mod, Han.

    [:D]

    Thanks, guys! I really appreciate the feedback!

    I guess what I'm really looking for is a way to make the topics fresh again. It just seems to me that I'm running out of ideas and I'm treading on ground we've already covered. What would you like to see in topics? Should I focus on characters/scenes etc. or branch out?

    Wish I had come by here a bit earlier--I did a drawing with a SnowMando (snowmand + Mando) lol. I used Photoshop for the inking and coloring--getting the hang of it finally, I think.

    I like how things are running here, just wish I could get by more often. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to get drawing more, shooting for everyday.

    I apologize for not having a January topic. I was hoping to get some more feedback on the future of the challenge, but since I didn't receive anymore, I will just move ahead with what we've always been doing. As always, if you have ideas for a future challenge, please let me know!

    With that said, the February challenge is now up!

    Nice works, earlybird. :) I've always heard about Siri, but have yet taken the time to read up on her.

    I just might be able to make an entry for this challenge. Will think of something.

    Thank you!

    I really enjoyed making them. It was fun trying to come up with each one and then hard to stop at just four!
