    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 -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!

    Cool beans! Kinda creepy knowing Vader's her father after the fact, and he interrogated her...

    Here's my entry in the things-we-didn't-see-in-the-movies category. Obi-Wan after falling into that nest of gundarks that was referenced in Attack of the Clones.

    Yeah, it is a little creepy. Thanks! And nice work on the 'Nest of Gundarks' scene, I love the use of the Clone Wars style and the shading you used!

    My submission for the category of Yuuzhan Vong! I finally decided to leave the picture as an ink and pencil. :)

    Great submissions, guys!

    JKRuthie--I like seeing Vong as they were so descriptive in the books, and it seems to be nice as an ink/pencil.

    Basement--good job! looks like it was straight out of the cartoon

    ShrunkenJedi--that is an interesting interpretation--yeah, a bit creepy I agree

    Here's mine -- Artoo getting ready for Halloween. I titled it "Delusions of Gradeur", since I also thought maybe it's what R2 was thinking when Luke stowed his saber in him, ready for the assault at Jabba's.

    I love your drawing of Jacen TheOnlyJediPrincess! :) It really looks a lot like him.

    The Halloween pictures are great too, and they're very creative in the use of characters.

    My entry for this month, in the Chiss category. ;)

    Here's mine for this month--I finally got something drawn for an art challenge! Yea!

    [image=http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e144/starwars79/hwboba.jpg]

    Halloween for young Boba. For some reason, all pumpkins look the same to him...
    (I colored this quite quickly, but I explain more in my art thread)

    These pics here look great so far! Chewie as R2--LOL

    Great submissions, everyone! Nice work! :D

    The new challenge for November has been posted. I apologize if there's any repeats. It's getting to the point where I'm forgetting what we've done so far and it's getting harder to come up with new subjects. So, this is where I'm turning to you. If you have something you want to see done for a future fan art challenge in any category, please let me know! :)

    Just a quick one this month, I've got 3 jobs on the go right now. I would have liked to spend more time with a Luke picture, since he's a favourite, but oh well.
