    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!

    Hi, this is a poster I did. I was thinking about what General Grievous's propaganda posters might look like, if he had them This is what I came up with. I'm working on a couple more Star Wars propaganda poster ideas. Hope you enjoy my work.

    I put a link to the photo , I'm new and haven't figured out how to put an image in the message.

    Thanks, John Ottigner

    jottinger, welcome to the boards! I'm not sure what your image has to do with the September challenge, but please consider starting up your own thread to display your work. This thread is dedicated for responses to the Fan Art challenges only. Thanks!

    ooo haloween ^____^ I'll have to find the time to participate again ;)

    I have a question: would sith fit the halloween theme ? And I'm thinking maybe doing something with a little bit of blood. Is that allowed in the TOS and how bloody is too bloody ?

    Thanks ^^

    No worries! If you have any questions on how to get started, please don't hesitate to ask! I'll be happy to help you out. :)


    Hmm. Well, I wouldn't say Sith by themselves would fit into the Halloween theme. I would add something extra to really give it that Halloween feel. And I have no problem with a little bit of blood. I would just stay away from real gory details and stuff like that. It's hard to say how much is too much without a chart or anything like that, so I'm just going to say if you're in doubt about it, run it by me first and I'll let you know if it's appropriate to post. :)

    Oh, don't get me wrong, you can still do Sith. I just don't want straight-up portraits of Darth Maul or Darth Vader. Be creative. Incorporate horror or Halloween in some way and you'll be fine. :)

    And Force ghosts. That's a good idea. Again, try not to do straight-up portraits. Be creative!

    you guys are too kind. Please do not be intimidated or hesitant to post work.
    I am no where's near perfect and there is room in this world for all types, styles and levels of artwork.
    Wow, that sounded real cheezy...
    Anyway, thanks for the huge compliment
