Welcome! The Official Fan Art Challenge returns again with a new theme for Spring.

[hr] 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.
