It's Them! (ET's & Aliens)

This challenge closed over 2 years ago.

The Challenge

~ Entities from Elsewhere ~

This challenge is for Beings Not of Earth… whether biological or cyborg, whether friendly or malicious. You can show their space-crafts or their planets or their cities if you like, but please be sure the ALIENS are the MAIN FOCUS of your image! We want to see your best in life-forms NOT from Earth ~ up close. Or if they’re here…they may be living underground or deep at sea, but they’re not “US,” and they more than likely wouldn’t pass for Homo Sapiens.

Also, Beings should be sentient: microbes are interesting and all… but here, we’re looking for intelligent ET’s (whether mammal, plant, reptilian or Something Else).

Original creations are encouraged. Tribute art will be accepted, but only if it’s highly innovative and original in execution: nothing copied from TV, or photos, or directly off the internet!

All the usual rules apply, so check our group requirements (home page) if you’re in any doubt.

Any media ok (drawings, paintings, Bryce, Photoshop, etc) and style and approach are up to you whether humorous or serious. As always, any work deemed offensive or which fails to adhere to the theme of the challenge or our group requirements, will be removed; it’s only fair to everybody else.

The IMAGE ONLY default is preferred. You can post your work as shirts, but please don’t enter pillows, leggings, i-phone covers, totes, etc. Your art can be AVAILABLE in all or any products, but I need to see a nice, clear PICTURE when I open up your work: otherwise, the work may be disqualified, and why miss out?

Older work is fine. New is better yet! But please don’t enter work that’s won 1st Place in any challenge in the Sci Fi Group. (Top 10s are fine as are works that may have won in other groups).

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please Vote! And do pick more than one!

No Soliciting for Votes. Any member caught padding the ballot box either via Bubblemail, Facebook, or any other venue will have their work removed. So play fair! Let the artwork win on merit, not your popularity on social media!

VOTES are IMPORTANT! If you enter, please participate!
