    Welcome to the Official 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, digital 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!

    Obi, Yoda and Ani seem to have great fun.

    Ventress is not so cheerful at all...

    :D

    For Pashatemur and the players from GAW.

    This piece reflects the emotion and themes from within GAW. Proverbial commentary provided by Pashatemur on both the Jedi and Sith creeds as 'Master' and 'Apprentice' are reconnected after years of tribulation.

    (AzureAngel2 in disguise, wearing her update sock)

    Is it okay, when I post a painting tomorrow between 10:00 am and 11:00 am German time? For it is 11:52 pm here in County Lower Saxony and I am too tired to paint anything. I have an idea though after I had a peak into the newbie/ oldbie party!

    [face_batting]

    Pretty please, Han?

    *thought very hard on the subject the past days until the great breakthrough came 20 minutes ago*

    When I woke up, I had the answer!

    *is not wearing her up-date sock any longer*

    I already have done a lot of trials recently...

    with a very gloomy Ventress giving a lot of people a hard time, testing their abilities to live on.

    *is too tired to paint Luke anyway*

    So I may be jumping the gun here...but when does the Fall Challenge start? I'm excited to contribute this time around! I had a lot of deadlines last time and couldn't find the time.

    I'm hoping to have it started within the next week. At the moment, I'm waiting to see the outcome of the changes proposed in the Comms thread and I'll make a decision on how to proceed with the challenge from there. I'm considering having the next one include non-SW art entries, but I want to wait and see before jumping the gun.
