Guidelines
- Challenge Theme: The Nar & their Surroundings
- Deadline: 1st January 2009
- Art Styles Allowed: Everything
- Submissions per. participant: unlimited
- Everybody is welcome
- There will be no winner or loser, this is mainly for fun and to keep the JUICE flowing.
- Personal Opinions on each others artwork are of course allowed, just try to be mature in your comments. no flaming!

Felt like it was time for another art challenge, this time the theme is about my favorite species from the Marathon series. The Nar & their surroundings. This time the challenge is focused on getting people to focus as much on the background (nar homeworld, ships, etc.) as on the foreground (Nar person, some Nar related object or whatever you wish to use).
Although this description does focus more on the visual genre of art it can be adapted to the audial genre or any other type of art. But I'll leave that to the artists themselves.

*** IMPORTANT! - If you have borrowed some art online from someone to use in yours, please do credit the real author in the same post you submit your art. It's truly disgraceful to steal art! ***

Crap, sounds like I'll have to plow through Durandal and possibly Infinity before the month is over (I have no idea who the Nar are..).

Yeah, but looking at a couple images isn't the same as learning about them through the game (and I know you can find all of the terminals and stuff online, but I don't want to spoil the game).

They aren't monsters you actually fight, just a couple of guys Durandal mentions in a few terminals.

Guys, the art contest is to draw the Nar, not Krang.
