Expanded Universe Contest!

Today's entry is a bit later than usual, but it's here on Friday regardless! I'm hosting a contest over on DeviantArt for the best Expanded Universe sketch card! If you'd like to participate, here are the rules:
Calling all sketch card artists, digital and traditional alike!

I'm hosting a contest for the best Star Wars Expanded Universe character, after doing a slew of them for Topps Star Wars Galaxy 6 sketch cards! This can be digital or traditional, and you can submit as many as you like! And best of all, THERE'S PRIZES! Read the rules CAREFULLY so you're qualified for some prizes!!

- Any character established in the television series, any novels, comics, or video games, are eligible.
- Does not have to be a scene. Treat these like sketch cards!
- Cards MUST be in a 2.5 x 3.5 ratio. Traditional sketch cards are 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and digital cards may be at any size/resolution as long as they're proportionate to the 2.5 x 3.5 ratio! THIS IS A MUST!
- Illustrations not in card format will not be eligible.
- Digital cards and traditional cards both permitted. No limit to how many can be submitted.
- Movie characters are allowed, as long as they're EU versions of themselves. For example, Luke in Hoth gear isn't eligible, but Luke in his Shadows of the Empire vest, or Dark Empire suit, is!
- No original characters, unless they've made it to first party media!!
- It must be uploaded after this journal is live. Any submissions made that have a DA time stamp before this journal is posted will be disqualified. In other words, don't submit an old image for a new contest! Draw somethin new!
- Submit any and all submissions IN THIS JOURNAL THREAD, AND HERE ALONE! No images outside of DA permitted as submissions, they must be on DeviantArt.
- Any submission not pertaining to these rules will be displayed with all of the other submissions, but will not be eligible of winning any of the prizes.

Prizes done by me:
1st Prize - A digital sketch card of your favorite Expanded Universe character AND a set of 3 personal full color sketch cards of any EU characters you like (one per card). The set of 3 original full-color cards will be mailed to you!!

2nd Prize - A digital sketch card of your favorite Expanded Universe character AND an original full color sketch card of the same or any other EU character that you like (one character per card)! The original card will be mailed to you!

3rd Prize - A digital sketch card of your favorite Expanded Universe character!

The absolute latest day you can submit is February 15th. That's a little over a month to make it happen! No excuses! =)

I can't wait to see what you guys do!! Have fun!


Finally, here's the first of ten digital sketch cards of a new series: Original characters and established characters appearing in my Order 66 comic pitch to Dark Horse! I'm working on the story now, but I thought this would be great practice. This character is named Timo Denn, one of the many Jedi Masters to fall the day Order 66 was passed. He's the twin brother of the story's protagonist, Peil Denn, and will make a brief appearance in a dream sequence! His costume is a direct homage to Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars microseries. Hope you dig him!
