|Supernatural > Fanart Challenges > New Challenge Suggestions|
|Posted by: Supernaturally Obsessed Aug 29 2007, 05:35 PM|
| Okay folks. If you hadn't noticed I haven't run any new challenges in a bit because of the ongoing Award Banner Challenges for the Supernatural.TV Awards. Now that the last challenge for that has been posted, I'm looking for suggestions for a new one.
Please post your ideas in this thread and we'll go from there.

|I don't know if this has been done already, but how about a fav. couples banner/avi. Or a soundtrack inspired banner/avi - a banner and avi inspired by the lyrics of a song played on SN.|
|Posted by: Shannon Aug 29 2007, 06:04 PM|
That sounds like a cool idea
What about a dmeon or spirit banner/avi of Supernatural?
|Posted by: JessicaRae Aug 30 2007, 05:10 AM|
| Hmm... How about a banner/avatar that conveys a single emotion? Love, hate, pain, sadness, fear, empathy, happiness, etc. And have no other text, but the name of the emotion that the art is representing.
|Posted by: vintage Aug 30 2007, 07:11 PM|
I really like that idea, even though I don't make any art myself... but it'd be something I'd really like to see.
But again, this is great too! I love that, solid emotion thing where it could everything. You get a lot of feeling from SN and it'd be nice to see what people came up with using Dean and Sam, etc.
|Posted by: Senator Seth of the UGS Aug 31 2007, 01:40 AM|
| Okay this is more of a Challenge organization suggestion, that was inspired by another forum, but what but some kind of Signature of the Week (SOTW) organization. It's basically running a weekly challenge. Nothing big of course, usually a signature (as the title points to). And we hold voting on the themes so that the users of the forum and decide what theme they want to see/do for the week and then they have a week to do so. I have more detailed ideas on this if anyone else thinks that this would be a cool and/or interesting idea to give a try for a while.
For a challenge suggestion...hmm...what about the YED? Wasn't that an idea a while back? What about doing something around him...in honor of his "semi-passing" for those of us that still believe he will find a way to come back.
|Posted by: Point_Blank Aug 31 2007, 03:43 AM|
| Hmm... it'd be kind of cool if we picked one song with some good lyrics and everyone could pick and choose which lyrics to use and create a banner from it. A One-Song challenge. We could pick one that has been played on SN?
I also like JessicaRae's idea with the emotions. Sound very cool!!
Or maybe one where a few pictures are given and we must make a banner out of those. So therefore we could see different interpretations with the same material. (Possibly same text too?) I think that'd be cool!
|Posted by: Shannon Aug 31 2007, 03:59 AM|
You mean like a morage. where so many picture are put together. Or is it called a moral? That would be cool!
|Posted by: Dean Winchester Sep 1 2007, 09:12 AM|
| I think you mean a Collage (From the French: coller, to stick) is regarded as a work of visual arts made from an assemblage of different forms to create a new whole.
The second thing you were asking about (I assume you mean a Mural not a moral.) is used to define a large painting on a wall, ceiling or other permanent structure.
A Moral is pertaining to, or concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical: moral attitudes.
But I digress...
I like JessicaRae's idea.
|Posted by: Brittani44 Sep 1 2007, 01:52 PM|
|Yeah I like the idea of picking a song from SN and doing a banner on it or everyone being provided with the same pictures so we can see differnt interpretations VERY COOL!|
|Posted by: Saiyuki Sep 6 2007, 11:15 PM|
| I like the idea of using a songs lyrics to inspire, but i also loved the idea that someone came up with the last time around...
Using a single image or a few set images, so everyone makes basically the same banner, but in thier own style
|Posted by: BandityG. Sep 17 2007, 03:29 PM|
|I agree, I like the One-Song idea... there's so many to choose from and all with awesome lyrics|
|Posted by: iluvJaredxx Sep 17 2007, 06:27 PM|
| hmmm. i remember a challenge we had awhile ago.. favourite woman of the week... i think it would be cool to do a male verison of that.. if we haven't all ready???? *thinks real hard*
|Posted by: Shannon Sep 17 2007, 07:41 PM|
|^ I would like to see a banner with Gordan in it!|
|Posted by: iluvJaredxx Sep 17 2007, 09:12 PM|
| Hehe oh yeah, for the ass that he was.. he was kinda cool.
I dunno who I'd use...
ya never know. lmao.
|Posted by: Shannon Sep 18 2007, 03:27 PM|
|I would like to see banners of all the hunters and Physic. Like the complete set.|
|Posted by: immie_8 Sep 18 2007, 06:48 PM|
Oooh, or how about an avi set, with one word that describes each of them.
|Posted by: loveSam Sep 18 2007, 07:04 PM|
|I would like see a challenge make a banner and avi about favorite town or place that was on Supernatural like for example, Roadhouse, Bobby's house, or Lawrence, Kansas.|
|Posted by: BandityG. Sep 18 2007, 09:43 PM|
|That'd be cool loveSam! Would be different than the normal character-centerd challenges. Awesome idea|
|Posted by: sweetie0704 Sep 20 2007, 05:33 AM|
|Great ideas guys! I was thinking about challenges I've seen at other places and I was thinking we could do an avi challenge. I've seen on some LJ communities, they give you pics to choose from and you have to use one of the pics and make an avi that goes with the given theme. It's just an idea, but it might work for a challenge.|
|Posted by: Shannon Oct 2 2007, 06:29 AM|
| okay I was just getting into the theme of Halloween and was thinking of changing my avi for the whole week of October and then i got to thinking.
A banner themed for Halloween. Since this show is sscary it shouldn't be to hard. Maybe on the banner have Happy Halloween wriiten on it. Of course it will show demons on the banner. It could even show the clown to anything that strikes you as scary from Supernatural.
I don't know. I just thought that would be cool. Okay I'm gonna stop talking. *hides from everyone*
|Posted by: vintage Oct 3 2007, 01:06 AM|
|Oooh, don't be hiding Shannon! I think that's a great idea. And it totally fits with the show. I second that vote... if we.. vote?|
|Posted by: Saiyuki Oct 5 2007, 11:07 PM|
|Halloween style? Sound like a great idea|
|Posted by: Brittani44 Oct 6 2007, 02:04 AM|
|OOOOO I likey HAPPY HALOWEEN I can see it already|
|Posted by: Senator Seth of the UGS Oct 7 2007, 12:58 AM|
|Halloween style sounds like an awesome idea to me. Have some ideas already.|
|Posted by: Brittani44 Oct 25 2007, 04:14 PM|
| we could do a thanksgiving thing where you make a banner with the title
I'M THANKFUL FOR..... and then whatever supernatural you cant live without like DEANS EYES or THE METALLICAR ect....
Just a suggestion
|Posted by: Shannon Oct 25 2007, 07:03 PM|
|^That'd be a sweet banner. I'll definately be thankful for the whole package. hehehe|
|Posted by: Brittani44 Oct 26 2007, 01:56 AM|
|yeah thats what i thought|
|Posted by: TammiTam Oct 27 2007, 12:58 AM|
|Or maybe take it one step further ... something the characters (any, not always Sam or Dean) are thankful, something that's happened on the show.|
|Posted by: sweetie0704 Oct 31 2007, 03:37 PM|
|I like the 'Thankful for' ideas! That'd be fun!|
|Posted by: BandityG. Oct 31 2007, 03:50 PM|
|Love the "Thankful For" idea, and I really like Tammi's idea on taking it a step further with what the characters are thankful for. It'd be a fun challenge|
|Posted by: Saiyuki Nov 1 2007, 12:58 AM|
|The "Thankfull for..." idea is great, i love Tammi's twist on it too|
|Posted by: Senator Seth of the UGS Nov 1 2007, 01:05 AM|
|Sounds like a fun and interesting challenge to me, too.|
|Posted by: Saiyuki Nov 1 2007, 09:32 PM|
|I just thought of something...we do alot of charactor stuff..perhaps we could do an actor challenge? or would that detract too much from the fact that it's Supernatural related?|
|Posted by: Brittani44 Nov 16 2007, 03:17 AM|
|I need a new challenge im going crazy with nothing to do|
|Posted by: Shannon Nov 17 2007, 10:03 PM|
| can't we do two challenges at the same time?
I like the Thanksgiving one and later we can do a christmas one. wait that might be to hard since there aren't to many christmasy things in Supernatural, except for the picture in WIAWSNB, the snow in Route 666 and the blooperes in the first season.
Just wondering when you'll have the Sam emotion avi/banner. I can't wait to see that one.
|Posted by: Saiyuki Nov 17 2007, 10:09 PM|
| As i now have mod powers...everywhere
I might do the next challenge to give the other Jen a break
I'll try and sort something soon
I love the thanksgiving idea...do you think it would be too late for that?..when exactly is it...next thursday...right?
|Posted by: Supernaturally Obsessed Nov 17 2007, 11:10 PM|
| Hey all I'm sorry I haven't put up a new challenge, I've been a bad, bad mod.
Jen, go right ahead and run the next one if you'd like. I'm more than happy to share the load, we can switch back and forth if you'd like.
Thanksgiving is this Thursday so it's too late for that one. I'm so sorry everyone.
|Posted by: Saiyuki Nov 17 2007, 11:52 PM|
| Sounds good to me Jen
So it looks like we're going for a Supernatural Christmas style banner/avi set?
Then after we're done with that Sam Emotion Banner/avi
|Posted by: Cami Nov 18 2007, 12:53 AM|
| aha! a christmas banner/avvie is what I requested for Secret Santa! Tammi will kill me if I change again, I am so difficult *facepalm*
but I love the idea, we should definitely do it!
I'm just getting used to people having real names lol, Saiyuki is Jen AND Supernaturally Obsessed is Jen?
well whoever is who, I hope you feel better Jen who isn't Saiyuki
ho ho ho!
|Posted by: noelle Nov 19 2007, 10:23 PM|
| aww thats alright, S.O. *huggle*
so the next one is a Christmas themed set? sweeeet...*brainstorms*
|Posted by: sweetie0704 Dec 14 2007, 08:12 PM|
|I'm iching for a new challenge and since we did a Christmas one, maybe we should do a New Year's one. Just a suggestion|
|Posted by: Brittani44 Dec 15 2007, 02:06 AM|
| How about an ode to the demons mixed with a new year theme like
NEW YEAR NEW DEMONS
OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW
|Posted by: sweetie0704 Dec 17 2007, 06:00 AM|
That's awesome! I never would have thought of that one! Kinda like a fair well to the demons we all know and loved.
|Posted by: rayuk666 Dec 17 2007, 12:55 PM|
| I like them ideas!
hmmm, how about New year resolutions for the characters as well maybe?
|Posted by: Brittani44 Dec 18 2007, 07:32 PM|
|Thats a good one too|
|Posted by: Senator Seth of the UGS Dec 21 2007, 03:16 AM|
| Okay so I had this idea forever ago, and I just remembered it from the "Last Icon Maker Standing" suggestion. What about having a weekly challenge for the graphics people. You see it a lot on other boards, and I thought that it would go over really well here with all the graphics people we have. Usually it's called Signature of the Week (SOTW), but if there is any interest in this at all...I would really like for us to come up with our own name (who likes conforming anyway )
The idea would be that every week we post up a new challenge with a theme selected by staff or by the members (sometimes I've seen boards do is open up theme voting where the members vote for the theme that they would like to do) and then anyone interested would have the week, Monday to Friday, to make their sig or whatever, (open to expansion to other art here), and then Saturday voting goes up until Sunday night or afternoon, then the winner is announced and given a badge or something.
I personally think that this would be something new and a lot of fun for the graphics people, and possibly other artistic people to get into as well. Also, as said above, I'm really open to making these something unique for this board and having a lot of fun with them.
So what do you all think?
|Posted by: Cami Dec 21 2007, 04:01 AM|
|I love that idea Seth! I like the fact that there would be more contests and more chances to win and having a little badge to display would be cool!|
|Posted by: Syri Dec 25 2007, 06:00 PM|
| another traditional art challenge; an iconic item from the show; ie, metallicar, the colt, the gate to hell, whathave you, and must be done in multiple art mediums.
along the traditional lineshow about recreating, with permission, of ourse, a banner or avi that was done on the computer. can be your own work or one you had made for you or one that you were permitted to use with EXPRESSED PERMISSION (cause otherwise that's just stealing)
|Posted by: Shannon Jan 1 2008, 05:32 AM|
| I got an idea. since it's 2008 now, Happy New Years everyone. I was thinking that a new Years onne might be too late to do so why don't we have banners about memories?
In the middle or wherever on the banner have memories written and you could select any couple of scenes from the past seasons and have them all over the banner. I thought that would be cute and fun for SPN fans to do. It's not like they can choos a certain thing, they can choose anything.
|Posted by: Cami Jan 1 2008, 07:46 PM|
|ooh I like that idea Shannon! you could look into the souls of the winchester boys|
|Posted by: Saiyuki Jan 1 2008, 11:11 PM|
| I LOVE the Traditional ideas Syri!!!! particulartly a focus on Metallicar
Genius!!! I'll have to make sure to recomend that we do that to grkgrl
Oh i love your Memories idea too shannon...I'm gonna be doing the Last icon maker standing Challenge soon and that may run for a few weeks...
I don't see why we can't have that run along side
|Posted by: jabukarakija Feb 6 2008, 09:59 PM|
|Random request because i'm in the VDay mood, but how about a Valentine's Day challenge where you pair off Dean, Sam, or John with any girl we've seen on the show.|
|Posted by: Shannon Feb 19 2008, 04:14 AM|
|^That sounds cute and like it will be a good idea. I can see one with Sam and Sarah and Dean and Haley and John and Ellen|
|Posted by: jericho. Mar 29 2008, 07:15 PM|
| How about... make a banner promoting the final round of episodes of supernatural, season 3? You know, the last four or however many episodes until the finale, and you put your own spin on it by trying to emphasize what you think is going to happen next.
Orrrr we could just skip those last few episodes and go right to whatever you think will happen in the finale, instead.
|Posted by: Shannon Apr 23 2008, 02:06 AM|
| Did we ever do a banner and avi of the cars in superatural? The impala, The pick up, The monster truck, The soccer van, Sams blue car, Gordans car, Bobby's car, Kubicks trailor, Bela's car, The bus in Scarecrow, The cop car and the little moving van in The Benders, Andy's van, The semi truck.
Sorry I listed like a whole page. I got carried away.
|Posted by: Shannon May 29 2008, 05:23 PM|
|We should do a food banner and avi. Just for fun I guess. Take as many food shots from the episodes and put them on the banner and avi. LOL. That might make everyone hungry though.|
|Posted by: lastwords Jun 9 2008, 05:29 PM|
|I don't know if this has ever been a challenge before, but what about a Evil Sam vs. Evil Dean banner? Of course, people will all pick the Daldom eppy for Dean pics, though...|
|Posted by: sweetie0704 Jun 10 2008, 04:05 AM|
That's a good idea! There are other Evil!Dean pics out there though they technically aren't really him. *cough*Skin*cough* I like that idea
|Posted by: firecho Sep 14 2008, 09:00 AM|
|What about a Brother vs. Brother one|
|Posted by: Shannon Sep 16 2008, 05:42 PM|
|Same thing as Bro Vs. Bro one but Yellow eyes Vs. Lilith too?|
|Posted by: exdemon1120 Oct 7 2008, 12:38 PM|
|any news on when the next challege is going to be I hope to have time to try for it.|
|Posted by: Senator Seth of the UGS Oct 11 2008, 03:23 AM|
| Here are just a few of my suggestions for another fanart challenge:
1. A banner/avatar set based off of Castiel.
2. Some kind of banner challenge involving Halloween.
3. Season 4 promo banner.
4. Some kind of LP (large piece) challenge. (Maybe having some kind of tie into Halloween or horror genre.)
|Posted by: Shannon Oct 11 2008, 05:33 AM|
| We did a Halloween banner last year but I guess it could be done again since there's more images to choose from.
I really like the make your own Season 4 banner.
|Posted by: exdemon1120 Oct 15 2008, 04:37 AM|
|I like all of Seth's suggestions. Any of them would be fun to work on.|
|Posted by: immie_8 Nov 2 2008, 12:53 AM|
|Oh, I like the idea of a Castiel Banner/Avi Challenge!!|
|Posted by: Shannon Nov 18 2008, 02:00 AM|
| How about banner/avi sets of demsils in distress? Or who all Dean and Sam have saved? Like a remembrance.
Loving the Castiel Challenge
|Posted by: cassopeia Dec 27 2008, 01:25 PM|
|How about a "I will survive the hiatus" banner/avi|
|Posted by: Angel325girl Dec 28 2008, 03:30 PM|
|hehe, I totally love that idea Claudia. Since it's almost over it should be a "I survived the hiatus" *snickers*|
|Posted by: cassopeia Dec 31 2008, 09:17 PM|
| It's still 15-16 days
|Posted by: Saiyuki Feb 13 2009, 08:26 PM|
| Seaon 4 dvd cover?...as we didn't do one for Season 3 *Facepalm*
Have we done a Bobby banner/avi Challenge?...I can't remember
|Posted by: Supernatural_luver Feb 19 2009, 06:29 AM|
| A season 4 cover it would be awesome!
and I am not sure if a Bobby banner/avi has happened yet but I would be up for that as well!
and I don't know if this has been done before but maybe a Gordon Challenge? Since he is gone and all I think it would be pretty sweet to do something to remember him you know?
|Posted by: fearlessgoddess2 Feb 21 2009, 12:29 AM|
| I just thought of a great contest for fanart! We've heard "Actors do it in the limelight" and "Comedians do it on stage" and many others. What I wonder is:
Supernatural fans do it....how?
What do you think?
|Posted by: exdemon1120 Feb 23 2009, 11:54 PM|
|what about a contest in memory of Kim. Maybe using clips from his best episodes and pictures of him in a banner or wallpaper contest?|
|Posted by: Saiyuki Feb 25 2009, 10:04 PM|
| ^That's a sweet idea
...It's a month today isn't it?
|Posted by: Senator Seth Jul 9 2009, 08:23 PM|
| Here are just some ideas I've come up with:
Newsletter Header Challenge (We've had our current one for a while)
Freelance Set Challenge -- Make a banner/avatar set of whatever you want.
Season 5 Promo Poster -- Make a poster for Season 5
Graphics Challenge -- We did one a long time ago (back when I first joined the board), and I think that it would be cool to do it again. Basically, a small group of artists (chosen through sign ups and first-come-first-serve) compete in a series of fanart challenges testing everyones abilities to the max. The winner is the person who wins the most points from winning challenges based on how many votes you get.
Also, I'm up for a DVD challenge...that would be cool.
|Posted by: hobbleit Jul 11 2009, 05:06 PM|
I like the idea of that
|Posted by: phantom_causes Jul 23 2009, 12:36 AM|
All of those ideas sound awesome to me! Since this summer has been rather slow for me (searching for work) I've been putting more time into my fan art. In addition to the challenges you suggested, I really think it would be fun to have some sort of wallpaper challenge again. Maybe a wallpaper challenge themed around a certain episode or something similar?
|Posted by: Dean Winchester Sep 8 2009, 01:57 PM|
|Back in the old days we had a bookmark challenge and it made me think about different themes that I've seen up for suggestion in the past. What about a challenge that uses SPN imagery to portray of a piece of literature? OR (along the same vein) has an excerpt from a piece of fiction (non-SPN) incorporated on the graphic?|
|Posted by: xlozx Sep 28 2009, 07:15 PM|
| What about something like you are given 10 words lets say and then you have to make Supernatural icons that you feel go with them words.
Another idea maybe could do like a banner or wallpaper crossover with another show or something.
|Posted by: Yoda Sep 28 2009, 08:11 PM|
I like that idea.
|Posted by: Knoxdiver Sep 28 2009, 11:08 PM|
|I really like that idea as well!!|
|Posted by: Wesson Oct 22 2009, 02:39 AM|
Second I love making icons.
|Posted by: fandrea Oct 22 2009, 09:33 AM|
| I am game for that.
|Posted by: Angel325girl Mar 3 2010, 08:08 PM|
|this could probably be any challenge. You could make banners around urban legends or icons for LIMS based around three urban legends on sn.|
|Posted by: fandrea Mar 3 2010, 08:44 PM|
| You mean like Bloody Mary, Hookman, Dr.Benton, stuff like that? Or maybe banners about MOTWs? That would be cool methinks.
|Posted by: SuperNaturallyintoJensen Mar 31 2010, 06:56 PM|
| Sam's tradgic love story depicted. A work of art that shows the beautiful sorrow of Sam's heart breaking love life. like picking the most tradgic of his lovers or loves who could have been
Just an idea
|Posted by: xlozx Apr 12 2010, 05:54 PM|
| Few ideas
Artists are given a selection of images to choose from with a min and a max amount allowed to use and you have to come up with a banner only using your chosen images, colour and text (no textures or brushes)
The same sort of thing but given images, no choosing from a selection, you have to use what you are given.
|Posted by: Yoda Apr 12 2010, 07:17 PM|
Oh yeah, we did something like that a loooooong time ago. It was a lot of fun.
|Posted by: fandrea Apr 12 2010, 09:35 PM|
| I like the idea... Sounds like fun.
|Posted by: Yoda Apr 15 2010, 01:01 AM|
|Quick note that I split the posts that were in here about how to run challenges into a http://z14.invisionfree.com/Supernatural/index.php?showtopic=51187.|
|Posted by: Luke Skywalker Aug 29 2010, 06:46 AM|
| Okay, so I was trying to think of another Fanart challenge to do now that the Suffering Hero set is over, and I'm getting the feeling that it may be time to do another Traditional art challenge. So this is the idea I came up with, let me know what you guys think:
In honor of the semi-recently announced http://wwws.warnerbros.co.jp/supernatural/#/animeTop, the challenge would be for artists to create their own anime version of Sam and Dean.
|Posted by: Cinca Sep 12 2010, 05:44 PM|
| Ok here goes nothing.
Since the soundtrack came out maybe there could be a challenge for making a soundtrack cover? Like how would yours look like?
Front and back, music listed on the back could be about 15 tracks that were on the show from S1 to S5.
Or well it could be just the front. Either way just an idea.
|Posted by: Luke Skywalker Sep 12 2010, 07:36 PM|
That's a cool idea, Cinca!! I like it.
|Posted by: red-reformed Sep 24 2010, 04:42 PM|
| Ok. How about a challenge to make art for phone wallpapers?!
Now, before anyone starts throwing rocks and I've been made well aware that IPhone's are the most popular trend around and that's completely ok. I'm thinking along the lines of:
Let's introduce a couple of new frames [size/proportion wise] and keep in mind that the art made will be for screen so much smaller than a PC, so no overly small details and let's call this invention - phone wallpapers!
So, how about customizing our daily lives with a bit of spice?
|Posted by: Luke Skywalker Sep 26 2010, 11:06 PM|
I'm interested in the idea, but I'd like to get some more input from other people first.
|Posted by: highvoltagerock Apr 18 2011, 06:00 PM|
| I am in love with the song Stairway to Heaven, and think a challenge based on that would be amazing....
esp this part:
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
seems so fitting for our boys...
I'm thinking it would be a "road so far" banner-the enormous challenge being portraying "the road so far" using both images from the show, as well as the lyrics from this beautiful song...To show our boys from the beginning (either the first hunt we see in the show, or one of their memories from childhood), right through to the end (either when Sam jumps into the pit, or the latest ep that has aired)...
If deemed that a banner is too small, then maybe a poster challenge with the same idea in mind...
|Posted by: Starkiller Apr 18 2011, 09:27 PM|
|I'll keep this in mind for the summer! Right now, a lot of people are getting close to the end of their school year and they just don't have the time to make something as big as a poster, which I think would be a more interesting way to do this challenge seeing as how it kind of implies more photos need to be used. So we may use this over the summer. Thank you for making the suggestion!!|
|Posted by: Angel325girl Jun 15 2011, 05:31 PM|
|how about a banner avi set from an episode people chose from. The mods would tell everyone to make a banner/avi of their favorite episode.|
|Posted by: Angel325girl Jun 10 2012, 05:56 PM|
| what about cartoon banners. Some people draw cartoon art of the boys or anything in supernatural.
I don't know if there are challenges anymore in here.
|Posted by: Yoda Jun 13 2012, 04:25 AM|
|That's a cool idea, Angel. But yeah, we stopped doing fanart challenges in here. Now they're part of special events like the Hellatus.|
