Members are encouraged to post creative works done by themselves that feature Qui-Gon. Works can include: art, short stories, poems, videos, jokes, songs, song lyrics, crafts, etc. I've already seen some of the work done, and everyone is going to love it. I can't wait to see what else you all came up with. Post your Qui-Gon creative entries throughout the day.

Woot!

Now, for some reason I had a lot more time on my hands, so I did a bit more than one Paint Art picture. This is the first, the one that was chosen by you members...all two of you Razz :



And this is the second:



Hope you like them!

Extremely, extremely impressive. Especially when you consider that only Paint was used. That's just incredible stuff. I can make stick figures with Paint, and that's about it. The background of the first one, with the shadow and everything, is really cool. And I love the second image!

Great job Life!

Thank you, OMB! glad you like them! I'm sure you can do more than just stick figures, though! Maybe I should do a tutorial course on it...

I just read your story.

Mind = blown.

First, let me say that I love the basic concept of looking into Qui-Gon's mind during his brief period of meditation during the battle.

Secondly, let me digest everything that happened during that meditation and get back to you. Again, mind = blown.

I am deeply honoured by your words! And I keep on jumping up and down like a little school girl!

This is a remarkably apt quote! And especially so with that particular picture.

I've said it once, but it probably cannot be said enough (though I think after 23,458,474 reiterations, it may get a little tired) that's some nice piece of writing!

Well done to Skuldren, and OMB!

Life and Skul, I really enjoyed both of your short stories.

I wrote this very short story over the past hour. I'm not entirely pleased with it, but I'm always pretty hard on myself.

Ah! Indeed, tis Qui-Gon Creativity day! My sister and I have written a brilliant poem! I hope you are not blown away by its sheer awesomeness. Enjoy. Cool

Qui-Gon Jinn, a worthy foe,
Where he was born, we do not know.
But where he died, we all could see,
As Obi-Wan screamed, "No! Not he!"

Darth Maul, they called him,
Red and black.
But neither did he venom lack.
His yellow eyes were a telling sign,
"A Sith!" they screamed. For it was time.

The Jedi all were called to arms,
And a slave from off a moisture farm
[who wrote this?!].
A podrace done, a committee held,
Darth Maul then died,
He fell and fell.

So what's the moral of this tale?
It's hard to rhyme!
It seems we've failed.

But here we are, yet marching on.
We hail our Master, brave Qui-Gon.
