The Best Star Wars Fan Art from the Art Awakens Contest So Far
The contest runs for two months, leading up to the opening of a professional Star Wars art exhibit in November featuring top artists that are both established and up-and-coming. The gallery will run for three days in Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, and will auction off all the original pieces for UNICEF Kid Power, which provides food for malnourished children around the world.
Five lucky winners of the fan art contest will have their pieces shown in the exhibit. The winners will be selected by a panel of judges that includes Disney executives, professionals from Lucasfilm, and artists from Industrial Light and Magic. The winners will also be flown out to LA for a VIP opening night.
The panel will have their work cut out for them, as contest has only been running for a little over a week, since August 11, and there are already many intriguing pieces. The styles are extremely different, ranging from dark, moody paintings of Kylo Ren to adorable sketchings of Rancor playing fetch with BB-8 and Chibi-style R2-D2 and C3PO. Here are some of our favorites, and you can view the rest here.
