I know that I'm not the example of a good user of this site, but now that you're promoting the arena in this place I'd like to propose a concept art contest. Te idea is simple: A moderator propose a theme and contestants use their drawing skills to develop taht concept based on that theme. Best idea and drawing wins.

Comments are welcome.

Hmm. Let me to understand. What you're suggesting is that a staff member, for example CloudMax or me, sets up a theme and contestants are to draw a creation according to that theme?
I believe this was the general contest idea to begin with! :P I think what we're looking for in this sub-forum, however, is to bring the users to participate in brainstorming over contest themes. For example, since I am no concept artist, I am certain you will be able to come up with a much better theme for a concept art contest than myself.

I'm not exactly sure UD has much of a concept art presence. I guess it would depend on how many people would be willing to join.

Hmm, well I believe that for the first contests the theme should be basic or generic, and I believe myself and the team will be able to set something up soon. I do believe it would be a lot better if the community were to give ideas instead, however! So please, feel free to suggest anything. The advantage wont be big anytime you wont start working on your entry before the contest starts.

The first contest should be very strongly related to Starcraft, so I suggest we choose one of the three races and base the competitors' concepts on that race.
