Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

Here's an idea - "Famous Last Words". It can cover any era, any character, any ship, and be serious; a different take on Kirk's "Oh my..." at the end of GEN - or funny; a shot of a Klingon ship's engine room overrun with tribbles, referencing Scotty's line at the end of TTWT.

Suggestion for April Art Contest [Arthur C. Clarke, 1918-2008]

I realize this is a STAR TREK art forum, but I just heard that sci fi lit luminary Arthur C. Clarke had passed away. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY hit it big when TOS was still on NBC, and Clarke was well noted in sci fi from 1945 to the present day. He was 90 years old.

I think it would be interesting to do a kind of crossover homage to Clarke, a kind of STAR TREK/2001 salute to him and his distinguished body of work.

I stand corrected: Mr. Clarke was actually born in Dec. of 1917.

Here's another piece on his life:

Re: Suggestion for April Art Contest [Arthur C. Clarke, 1918-2008]

This should really be in the "Can I Suggest an Art Contest" thread, but given its relevance to current events, and proximity to the end of the month, I'll leave it separate for now and merge it after the April challenge has been issued.

Speaking personally, I think a tribute to A.C.C. might be a very nice thing to see and to participate in, challenge or not. Clarke has been a huge influence on not only sci-fi and Trek, but on the world itself.

If a tribute hasn't already started by the time the votes are tallied and if by some bizarre twist I win (delusional, ain't I?), I'll propose Wingsley's idea. It's a beautiful thought, Wings'!

Sincerely,

Bill

I don't have an entry for this month, but I agree, it's a great idea. I even have something in mind.

This is an excellent idea. Even if its not for the monthly challenge, a thread dedicated to Clarke tributes would be nice.

We can all agree that we will only vote for challengers who say that they'll use THIS challenge next month. (I love the smell of extortion in the morning.)

^^ In which case, I think it best if no one among the contestants mention what you think you might do as a challenge while voting is on. I'd hate to see either a contestant exploit this potential, or to see a worthwhile challenger be robbed of a fair shot because he or she didn't play the "Clarke card." Let's not forget, it's the winner's choice of challenge, not the voters'.

Re: Suggestion for April Art Contest [Arthur C. Clarke, 1918-2008]

With the fresh set of excellent Star Fleet Universe-based art from Icy_Penguigo, I was thinking that the SFU might be an interesting place for an art contest to be based in or around.

There are a lot of races and ships which await a representation in art form - and a number of events and stories which are ready to be told in a new medium!

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

Well, this thread looks like it could use a bump.

I'm not sure if this is even a relevant idea. I remember Lincoln Enterprises making a set of TOS business cards way back in the 70's.



I have never seen any from the NG, VOY, DS9, TAS, etc.
How about a set form one (or all) of these incarnations?
I realize there isn't a lot of "art" involved but designing a good business card isn't always easy.

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

Ok, just came up with an idea for the impending October contest...CountryTrek

Look at the logo for the 2008 Country Music Awards...look familiar?

So, while "McCoy in his natural habitat" is a bit too easy and obvious, it does open up the possibilities to things like a rusted out Enterprise with a trailer hitch instead of a tractor beam, a push bar instead of a deflector dish and a confederate flag on the saucer. What about pump action, double emitter phaser shotguns? A klingon with his loyal huntin' targ by his side?

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

I noticed that about the CMA Awards two years ago. And while I personally don't like country music, "Country" does not equate to that tired and offensive stereotype. If you'd said redneck or hillbilly, I might be a little more agreeable.
