The Mission: featuring the Finest Sci Fi Artwork anywhere this side of Betelgeuse!
We accept artwork Original in concept and that based in fandom, also (tribute art). Any media is fine (drawings, paintings, Photoshop, Bryce, Apophosis, etc) but your work MUST have a sci-fi theme to qualify. This includes original creations as well as tribute art. ONLY sci-fi tribute work will qualify. No Sherlock, No Game of Thrones, No Breaking Bad! Those are not science fiction and will be rejected. So will comic art, unless it’s science-fiction based. Superman is sci fi ~ Batman is not.
Please do not submit cute animals, surrealism for surrealism’s sake, or abstracts and patterns unles they’re clearly science fiction based!
PLEASE READ ALL OUR RULES & GROUP REQUIREMENTS BELOW before submitting work!

Latest Challenge Winners/ Featured Artists!

Note: This is not a group for Horror (zombies), nor High Fantasy (dragons, elves and unicorns) although at times the genres overlap; in which event, yoiur host will make the ultimate decision and will have the final say. Classic science fiction is our mainstay, as generally accepted in the Sci Fi genre overall: images and stories based on scientific possibilities ~ no matter how far out or as yet unproven, such as star travel, time travel, alternate dimensions and the rest.
Remember, TWO elements are needed here: science… and fiction. No “just science,” please! Here, work must have its root not just in speculative science, but in story-telling too. Doesn’t mean you have to write the story (though we’d love it if you did), but your artwork should suggest one,or refer to one. If it would make a great illustration for a Sci Fi book ~ it’s probably our cup of tea!
Any work based on shows and movies such as Star Trek, Dr. Who etc. must show a high degree of originality! WE CANNOT, AND WILL NOT, ACCEPT MATERIAL COPIED DIRECTLY FROM SOMEONE ELSE’S ARTWORK OR PHOTOGRAPHY! Any submissions we suspect of being copied, will be rejected: so be sure your work shows a high degree of original interpretation, even if it’s based on known themes!
Jokes, slogans, funny references are welcome but as with everything, must refer to science fiction in some way, however nerdy or obscure.
No overt violence or gore, and NO animal abuse! Hosts will reject anything we deem offensive, racist or obscene, or not in keeping with the spirit of the Bubble or the group. (Tasteful nudity accepted),
