Beyond the Frontier 1
Some of you might know the science-fiction game X. It has been the source of inspiration for the title of the upcoming series of contests. This series is to motivate you, the artists, to try new things, to fight with your abilities and to learn things by giving your best. In the end, winning something shouldn't be the important part of the whole procedure, but creating new art and maybe reaching new dimensions concerning your personal skills. Which is much more worth than any prize you can get. But don't worry, there are still many awesome prizes to get!
Beyond the frontier is a series of space and science-fiction art contests. So your entries should fit to this genre from the very first sight. For inspiration and some impressions of what we are talking about, please regard the following galleries as some very nice examples: Science Fiction and Space Art
The topic of our first contest is Unkown Moons. The moon is the closest neighbour we have in space. It is pretty familiar to us and nothing special when we look to the sky during starry nights. But what about other moons? Caught asteroids like Mars' moons Phobos and Deimos or giants like Jupiter's Ganymede.
And these are only examples of our solar system. There are billions of possibilities out there in the universe. Show us the impossible! Show us something new!! Show us unkown moons!!!
