    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 - COULD BE YOU!



    Some Guidelines to Follow:

  2. 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.


  3. You can submit fanart for one topic, or do all of them. It is up to you.


  4. 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.


  5. Everyone is welcomed to post responses to this thread regardless of whether you post in the Fan Art forum or not. Please don't be nervous or discouraged. We would all love to see your work!

    this is my Depiction of how I envision Jacen Solo's sacrifice. This drawn from Jacen's point of view. He has just made his "Sacrifice." I think he will go into disbelief of what he just did. He is looking at his lightsaber and leans against the wall. his hand slips bit because of the blood on his hands.

    Enjoy!

    I love the "Vader of Coruscant" it is a very powerful image. He looks like he just battled the whole world and is left alone, with nothing to rule over.

    Yes, there will be an April Challenge.

    I'm just extremely busy with school assignments and some zine work. When I get caught up I'll post up the next challenge. :)

    Here is a little Photoshop magic for the Wild Card.


    I call this "Through the Force", both twins in their seperate worlds dream about each other. Both feel like half of a person and on some level know each other is out there.

    I've started a Luke/Leia piece too... a Yin/Yang concept with Alderaan and Tatooine standing in for the dots :D

    It seems the Luke/Leia idea is a popular one. I got an idea for it, too. It's a little like Minela's idea, but with a totally different medium. Let's see if I can get anywhere near that good... Minela, your 'Through the Force' piece is absolutely gorgeous!
    So, are we allowed to submit more than one entry each month? Just because I also got a possible idea for Anakin...

    This is my submission for Anakin Solo. I'm kind of proud of this one since it is my first image that is both Photoshop and traditional art (pencil and acrylic). Please enjoy.
