    Welcome!

    The Official Fan Art Challenge returns with a new take this time around. The main idea of the challenge is not to be a contest to beat out your fellow artists, but an outlet in which we can all grow and explore new ideas and possibilities together. So, here we go...


    What is the Official Fan Art Challenge?

    A place for artists and fans alike to participate in quarterly themed drawing exercises.

    Who can participate?

    The challenge is open to anyone and all skill levels. It doesn't matter if you can paint like Picasso or you can only draw a simple stick figure, you're more than welcomed to participate.

    How does the challenge work?

    Every seasonal quarter(Fall;September-November, Winter;December-February, Spring;March-May, Summer;June-August), Any medium is accepted and as I said above, all skill levels are welcomed. You are free to submit a simple sketch or a finished piece of art.

    The layout has changed for this version of the challenge:

    The theme will be given at the start with a choice of twelve topics to select from. The individual topic will only be revealed to the one that select from. The individual topic will only be revealed to the one that selects it's corresponding number.

    To participate, you choose and post a number from between 1 and 12 and the topic assigned to that number will be sent out to you via PM. You will have until the end of the season to complete and post your artwork.

    Where should I post my challenge entries?

    Right here to this thread. I want to keep all the entries in one place, but as always, you're more than welcomed to post them to your individual threads as well.

    Are critiques allowed?

    The short answer is yes. Let's remember to keep things within the TOS and to keep things positive and constructive. Critiques are meant to help an artist, not tear into them like there is no tomorrow.

    How will voting work?

    At the end of each quarter, all the entries will be gathered together and voted on by your peers. This is not meant to be a serious contest, but a way to give back to the community for all the time and effort you put into this place. The entry with the highest amount of hits at the end of the voting period will be awarded colors and a title for a week.

    If you have any questions or would like to suggest a topic for a future challenge, please don't hesitate to shoot me a PM!

    Special Thanks to HanSolo29 for developing the Fan Art Challenges.

    This is my drawing for #8. Am I supposed to tell people what it represents or are they supposed to guess? Please take into account that I haven't drawn anything in years, I just switched over from PC to a Mac and I just got Painter 12 and I have no clue where anything is anymore.

    I can add the name and link to the piece next to your name on the list.

    I think it looks great. I do understand what it is like with the switch from PC to Mac, you'll be learning new things every day. :)

    It is difficult going from a PC to a Mac because the keys are different. There is no DEL key. You have to do something like FN Backspace or something like that. And you have to get used to the way things are stored.

    There is a bit of a learning curve to familiarise yourself with the layout of the Mac, but when you get the hang of it it is so much easier. Personally I find it more efficient than PC and I do use both everyday. We can continue this discussion, if you would like, in the Artist's Lounge :)

    Didn't do it the way I wanted, but I'm running out of time and had to finish it.

    I am still on time when I start tomorrow, right?

    There were so many landscape paintings, animal paintings and flower paintings that were on my mind the past weeks.

    Just a friendly reminder to let everyone know that we have a little bit over a week before the current challenge ends. If anyone needs a little bit of an extention, please let me know.

    Looking forward to seeing how everything turns out :)

    Ack, I forgot that there was a deadline! Well, I got preliminary sketches done, I can prolly bang something out in a week. I just need to find some better paper, as this new sketchbook I have, the paper is rougher and thus pencils smear easier. [face_plain]

    I know no matter what I do, I'm not going to have mine done in time. I have commissions I need to take care of first.

    I guess I'll just have to post them up when I get the time to complete them. Would that still be okay?

    That should be fine.

    With the move coming very soon... it might actually be best to extend the deadline till when the boards has officially returned.

    Yeah, seeing as how I found out this week that I can start moving next week, then I'll welcome a deadline extension.

    I also need to hurry up. Working at two different schools in two different cities wears me out.
