Hello and welcome to the first edition of our new Fan Art challenges! Since this is the first one, please make sure to read the rules below. Also, feel free to post feedback about the rules/ challenge in the discussion thread linked below, as well as themes that you would like to see in the future.

Today we start the four-week run of the first Fan Art Challenge: Captains
Create Fan Art that shows off and depicts one of your in-game Captains of either faction, or one from each. Feel free to choose the setting (e.g. Ready Room, Captain's Chair, Academy, Transporter Room, combat etc.) you would like.
This is the artist's thread -- only entries should be made here.
The Discussion Thread can be found HERE.
We also have an Index of previous challenges HERE.

The rules may change from one challenge to another, but I'd like to let everyone know what the base rules are. These may grow as we move on, so also feel free to give feedback!
  • Each Challenge will run for four weeks. For these four weeks we will sticky the challenge and let you make your entry.
  • There is no right or wrong entry.
  • ALL artwork needs to be your original creation. This is VERY IMPORTANT!
  • Feel free to submit your entry in any medium (e.g. 3D graphics, sketch, watercolor, oil, crayon, pencil, collage, etc. -- anything (appropriate)!)
  • You will need to upload your image to your own file sharing site/ service and link it in this thread.
  • [IMG] code has been turned on in this forum, but you must ensure that the image you display is no wider than 500 pixels -- feel free to link the image to the file sharing site/ service that has the full size image so we can see it in its full glory. NOTE: Images must be appropriate for the forums and fall within the set forum rules or action, up to and including a ban, may be taken on your account.
  • Please keep discussion about the entries in the appropriate Discussion Thread.
  • In the Discussion Thread, feel free to write what inspired you and what your thoughts on the challenge/ rules are.
  • There will be no voting/ winners. This is just for fun.
  • A few other important reminders:
    • Please heed the rest of the forum's rules when submitting your entry! All of them apply to these posts/ images.
    • Each poster can have one entry (or two if doing one for each faction). Feel free to edit your post or add/ remove content as you see fit during the next four weeks.
    • After four weeks time, the thread will be unstickied as we move on to the next challenge.
    • We'll have two threads: One to post the entries in and one to discuss the entries. **Cross-linking between these two threads is acceptable for these challenges ONLY!!**

Bleah... this is not as good as it could have been. Alas, I probably won't care about that until the morning. I'll ink/colour it later.

And no, I couldn't be bothered to make it realistic. Enjoy my cartoony/anime/weird hybrid thingy...

I'm a warrior not an artist. I have better things to do with my time than draw pictures. Besides, I have no artistic skills. However, here is a rendition of my Stick Figure Klingon Captain. Qapla'!

WOW! Captains, your entries are awesome! I love the variety of mediums, and the passion you had. I'm looking forward to seeing the entries for the next one.

I am going to unsticky this thread as I prepare to post #2. If you would still like to participate, please do!

blast, missed the cutoff. Well stick figure Klingon looked lonely, and two warriors of the KDF should be able to cut a swathe through these soft federation types.
