    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

    Here's my entry for the Luke part of the challenge :D I was going for a sort of binary-sunset look... except that he got a wide grin instead of being all contemplative.

    HanSolo29, I've got a few questions to make sure I understood it all.
    What do you mean by jedi in the races/creatures category ? Do you mean that you consider the jedi as a race, or that the fan art should be about non human jedi ?
    The oter question is : Is there a winner per category per month, or is there only one winner per month?

    I'm stretching the meaning of the alien/creatures category for this month. I didn't want to pick something so obscure that no one wanted to draw them, so I put Jedi in there and have them categorized as a race. Human or alien Jedi characters are fine.

    As for the winners, a vote is held every three months to correspond with the seasons. The next vote will be in June and it will cover the entries for the Spring(March, April, May). Look over the first post in this thread for more info or if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)
