In the space of about five months, Ars Technic’s “Star Wars” fanart collection has grown to over 100,000 entries, and they’re all incredibly creative.
From original posters to fan art to tattoos, it’s easy to see why so many people are drawn to these images.
Now, the collection has just received its third expansion—and this time, it has a few surprises for fans to discover.
As part of the expansion’s art overhaul, the site is giving its users the chance to upload a new art style or two to be featured on the gallery.
To kick off the project, Ars has partnered with the popular image-sharing site Pixlr to give users the opportunity to upload up to three new images of peony flowers that have been inspired by the popular character, Darth Vader.
The first of these images, titled “Darth Vader Peony”, is a peony of all stripes, but it’s not the only new piece being showcased.
Next up is a series of “Pee-Pee Peony” images featuring the dark pink peony, which is one of the more popular types of peonies in the galaxy.
These peonies are so common in the Star Wars universe, they’re even featured in the “Starwars: The Clone Wars” video game.
Pixlr has also made it easy for users to add their own custom art by creating an image of their own, which can be shared with other users.
These images can be used in the gallery to either add or remove the artist, or they can be featured as background art.
This is an opportunity for the site to keep its users coming back for more, and to help keep the collection alive for as long as possible.
The peony is one that’s sure to become a staple in the collection.
To help get you started, Ars is offering up a few sample images to use in the space above, as well as a selection of more specific peony designs.
You can find the original peony and the Darth Vader peony in the Pixlr gallery above, and we’d love to hear your thoughts about the series.
