MARCH CHALLENGE of the MONTH

Please read all below for the rules for this month's challenge. :smiley:


You asked for it...

well, more or less.

We'll say you made the appropriate sorts of indicators (grunts, giggles and snorts) that you might like to have a go. So...here we are:



Name your favorite SCI-FI author, character or story! Bet you can't, because you have too many. Well, I have a small solution to that for this month of March.

Show us your impressions of your favorite story or stories, or a character in a story in a scene from that story.

Or if you like, make your own story, characters and a little dialogue to describe what's happening. 

Characters can be human, alien, cyborg, or fantastic creatures. It can be straight-on SCI-FI, SteamPunk SCI-FI or SCI-FI Fantasy. If it's SCI-FI, do it.

 
Please provide the name of the story or book and the author if not more - more is your choice - like a line or two of dialogue or description to set the mood. If it's your story, same applies. Use your name as author.



This contest will run until MIDNIGHT E.S.T. on Saturday, March 31st, 2018.
You may enter 3 (three) images
.

Welcome to our March 2018 COTM - SCI-FI FANFEST

What you need besides an image:

Story is some form of Sci-Fi.

Name of Story

Name of Author (use your name if it's your story)

A couple of lines of dialogue or small explanation of the scene.

That's it! Simple huh?



Let's see what all you Sci-Fi nuts got :grin:

Sort of but not really. I was mostly just playing with the new brushes :winks:

Brush management.... Yup, I know what you mean mtd. I just keep trying the ones I *think* is the one I'm looking for. Undo.... Undo...etc. Some of them I do have 'remarked' in my head but I haven't even begun to use every single one of them. LOL. Sometimes I find one I haven't seen before and it's like a :woohoo: surprise. "Oh cool!" :crazysmile:

Sounds like a cool challenge this time. There are so many SciFi lovers here I know they can come up with something interesting for their story, their own or showing their take on another person's story.
Fear not,
You are never alone,
I am there to comfort and guide you...
Always.

I like that you acknowledge the fact that we have many favorites. Mine is Asimov first and foremost, but I don't wish to limit myself to just one, as I have many other favorites as well.


That said, as you no doubt know, I like to write short short tales for many of my images, which more often than not are science fiction.


So now to my question, because I have not seen any reference to this: How many images are we allowed for this contest?

Sorry about that. I guess I did forget that part, didn't I?

This will be a ton of fun. 




I THOUGHT you were going to say send the pictures WITHOUT the authors - and then we could play a huge game of sci-fi charades.  Which is an amazing idea too.  Maybe.  Tho it might be inviting trouble the first time that someone guesses HALO for Ringworld.

Yes, all contests are 3 image max now.
Was not looking for an apology, but it is appreciated none the less. All I wanted was to know what the limit was for images, so I would not make the mistake of entering too many. The answer to the question suffices to satisfy me.


You are welcome concerning that I reminded you of something that was left out. I tend to notice things like that, so you can rely on me to point them out. I figure it helps to have folks say what is missing, and if I leave something missing, I would hope to have someone point that out for me. I am no more perfect than anybody else in this world. LOL

Watch carefully which story genres you use. Not all our favorites are exactly Sci-Fi.

Science, mad scientists, alien creatures, experiments, fantastical machines, etc are all part of the deal.

If you're not sure, you can usually go look up the story by name on Wikipedia and it will tell you what genre the story is - usually first thing in the description.

I see where the Oscar Winner for 2018 was "The Shape Of Water" which is considered to be the first Sci Fi Film to win the Oscars.
