EDIT: updated list of entries so far!
***
~ You are cordially invited to participate in the Sith Family fan contest. ~


GRAND PLAN

Create a fan work focusing on the 'family' side to a Sith character!

DEADLINE: MAY 5 (‘Revenge of the Fifth’)

PRIZES

1st place: X-wing model + 5 Topps Force Attax cards

2nd place: Star Wars Tabletop Game + 5 Topps cards

3rd place: Star Wars A4 Notebook + 5 Topps cards

Best in originality: Star Wars candy collectible (lollypop + mega tattoo set)

Best in technique: Star Wars candy collectible

Entrant with the most entries: Star Wars candy collectible

Take a look at the prizes here!

The Sith you can choose to focus on for your entry:

Palpatine, Maul, Plagueis, Dooku, Asajj Ventress, Savage Opress, Tenebrous, Venamis, Bane, Zannah. (No Vader this time, because he is already popular in this kind of theme.)

What does the contest theme mean?

The contest theme was inspired by the Vader and Son books – they show Darth Vader being a dad in a light-hearted way. Your entry can be (but doesn’t have to be) outright funny or cute – the only theme rule is to show the Sith in a softer moment of not being complete villains.

Try exploring the Sith's personality or past, imagine a new scene, create a funny parody or a moment which fits into canon… It’s all up to you, any interesting idea works fine!

The family type you can choose from:

  •  Sith masters and/or apprentices (Example: Maul and Palpatine)
  • Biological or adoptive family (Examples: Plagueis and his parents, Savage Opress and his Nightbrothers)
  • Other important ‘family’ roles in the Sith’s life - mentor, protégé or friend (Examples: Vidar Kim or Padmé Amidala to Palpatine, Larsh Hill to Plagueis, Mother Talzin to Asajj)
  • You can combine different family types in your entry, too!

Rules:

You are allowed to submit an unlimited number of entries. Entries must be your own work and created after the contest start, March 24. Any art form is accepted - fanart, fanfiction, crafts…

No shipping/romantic love themes (EDIT: unless it is a canon love interest, then of course it will be allowed). No disturbing content – some dark themes are allowed as the characters are Sith, but no overly abusive or triggering scenes.

Prizes will be sent out by mail - I will ship for free and worldwide. If you are underage, you should ask an adult if it’s OK to give out the address you want your prize sent to. For picking winners, creativity, skill and effort will be key criteria factors. Judges will be hegodamask and  myself.

A big thank you to SeperatistsOnly and Aliens-of-Star-Wars for putting out a blog entry about this!

Elodore, Dooku and Son by TiffanyEtch-A-Sketch

LegacySilence was not an uncommon guest in this wing of Dooku's palace on Serenno. He liked it quiet, free from the auditory pollution of servant droids and visiting dignitaries he only barely tolerated. Only a handful of beings, organic or not, were allowed to set foot in these chambers. The cavernous study was home to books and records of all kinds, all subjects, and all formats. Being surrounded by so much knowledge from all manner of peoples and times was a welcome weight most days. But even the most vast and varied library could not answer all questions.
Dooku sat there now, his back to the books and scrolls in favor of gazing out the window that took up the majority of the back wall. At first he seemed to be studying the patterns of the raindrops that struck the transparisteel and sped down the panes in rivulets. Or the dense forest that lay outside the courtyard's walls. But a closer look would reveal that his gaze was beyond anything the eye could see.
In fact, his vision was filled

Thank you so much for the wonderful entry, I'm sorry I can't properly comment on it yet but my dA is being uncooperative. It's on the entries list and I was so surprised to see an actual Dooku family possibility existing. :o

That's okay,  I'm totally procrastinating on here so don't feel bad. :giggle:

I know right? I would have never thought this guy had that possibility. :wow:

Ah no problem. I had a lot of fun doing it. I did most of it with my eyebrows narrowed and teeth clenched, It was my first sketch card attempt and I didn't want to ruin it. 
I hope DA will soon give you troubles no more. <333

(I'm probably just stupid) 

But I don't entirely get it. What am I suppose to do?
What are you looking for? 
Could it be an OC or another sith that is not from the list?

Hello! Sorry for the late reply, deviantART wouldn't load for me!

You can include an OC if you really want to or another Sith who is not on the list, but your work *has* to include at least one of the characters from the list. (If you choose Count Dooku for example, you can include an OC, any of his Sith apprentices, his Jedi apprentice or master, his birth parents...)

The only thing I'm looking for is a work that shows a Sith in a 'family' theme, rather than a generic 'Hello I am a villain' kind of theme. It's quite an open prompt, so it can be anything you want: two Sith eating ice cream, a story about a Sith remembering his mother, a picture of a Sith behaving kindly one day to his apprentice...

Good luck! I'll be happy if you choose to enter! :w00t:

Oh wow, if you manage to enter it, I'll be excited as anything! :heart: I totally understand if you're busy though!

I have to say: things that are totally cool as entries are also pencil sketches, or for writers even very short stories! Anything goes, even if it's a doodle. :aww:

Oh I definitely would like to, believe me. You know what I found so funny; how much the b-day gift I'd like to give you fits into your contest. Are you sure you aren't creating these contests just to get more free art of your favorite characters?, grin wink  lol

I might do a simple sketch, I'll be doing a whole bunch for Anidala Week anyways. :heart: And I love to draw more Sith characters for you. I can't do anything in pencil right now, I'm all out and I'm literally too poor to afford them at the moment. :broke: 

Which reminds me, speaking of traditional art, I can't wait for your package to arrive!

Yes! Actually I did want to say you can submit the gift idea as an entry (if you do decide to make the gift, that is!), but also I thought why put any deadlines in your mind? :)

LOL I did create the contests to see more art of characters I enjoy, but I wouldn't call it free since I saved up the money for prizes and end up making gift art for all participants in the end. :lol: So at worst it is an art trade, because I always feel bad if someone doesn't win a place. :rofl:
Last time I left an open prize system (winners pick from different options from a price range), but this time I decided having 'visible' prizes might be better. I managed to organise more physical prizes, so it's a total of 6 SW merchandise prizes this time.

What will Anidala week be like - you'll announce a week's worth of daily art topics a few days before the event?

Aww man, I hope you'll get to do pencil art again soon, that really sucks, not having current resources. :heart:

I hope you'll get your package soon, I think it should arrive this upcoming week maybe? It's a far trip, but it should arrive in 1-3 weeks, I judge!

lol! Ohh but I could never do that too you; send it in as an entry when it's suppose to be a gift. But I must say those suckers looked tempting (I might do it for a sucker....lol jk) :D. And even so, I don't *think* I'll be able to make the deadline, not with a project that big; I seem to have a lot going on this month and the next. But I am really curious to see all the entrees you get, last time seemed like you had quite a variety. I'll do something less ostentatious for your contest and will be happy if I don't win anything :aww:

And it's quite odd how suddenly I've gotten involved in another contest but this time for Ani and Pad's. I've just posted it now. I spent all week working on the artwork for it, then yesterday putting together the guidelines. My head is spinning from all the excitement, it seemed to come together so fast. I'm definitely excited to see the results... and it all started because Materyea made a comment about needing an art week for A/P lol, then WHAMO, it's here! :D I know I wont be able to do all seven days, perhaps four at best. 

Soo two contests, plus two b-day gifts (don't argue! I insist! :heart: I'll call the first one senior and the second one jr, since it's a simpler doodle) I've never been so art busy before (except in school). I feel kinda bad too, lol, my poor sister's computer died and she's dying to do art. She's stuck using DA Muro and her moms laptop. I'm hoping to lend her my laptop after the busyness dies down but that won't be until next week, but she's very resourceful and told me she's content with what she does have for the time being. 

Yah, packages make me happy. I think the moment It arrives, the realization that the person I've been corresponding with over the last year (you), is actually a real person, your a real person and do exist. I didn't think  of it until now but I do tend to think people of the internet are fictional because they never cross over into real life. Your cute little package will break like the fourth wall lol. It's very interesting when you think about it!

Yes, I want to join it. :) I have to start drawing it though or I'll run out of time. I haven't felt like drawing much lately since my art skills haven't gotten better in quite a while... But I definitely want to try to join the contest. If I'm unable to, I'll tell you so no one has to unnecessarily wait for me.

Ok. :) Thanks, and I'll keep an eye out for your note.

Welp, dA is not working for me and I can only access it from a friend's place, so I'm letting you know!  :( Anyway, for the Maul card type in 'maul card cyraina' on tumblr later today and you'll see it, I'll upload it to my sideblog (magisterhego username).

 I so hope you will join the contest, even a sketch is great! Also if you or anyone else needs a deadline extension that is totally fine with me and no issue at all. :)

OK as far as your art, I totally understand that feeling of not wanting to draw because of not feeling good about your style or skill level. I am going tosay you have absolutely nothing to wrry about, your art is very clean, very precise lined and you have great ideas. Definitely draw when you have time and inspiration, it's a feeling in your head that will pass if you allow yourself fun and confidence. We have all been there as artists and you'll pull through that nasty old art block! :heart:

I looked on tumblr and I couldn't find it. Q_Q

I want to try, but I don't think I have time. If I can't make it by the deadline, then finish without me. :)

Not just an art block, I just honestly haven't gotten better in years! XD I've found that the things I tend to draw on paper are turning out better than anything done on computer.

I don't get this. What exactly are you going for?

:iconteq-uila:
Teq-Uila Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014
You first pick one of the Sith characters from the list. Next you create a work that shows them within anything that can be described as a 'family' type of interaction.

It can be something non-serious/fun, or it can be more serious. Random examples: a drawing of two Sith baking cupcakes together, a fanfiction of a master teaching an apprentice some life skill, or talking to his parents as a child...

Does this help?
