Thank you to all the participants for this year's Art Exchange! I know things got off to a bit of a rocky start, and there were a few hurdles tossed in along the way, but after seeing everyone's contributions and the diversity of work, I feel comfortable calling it an outstanding success :D

A special thanks goes to one of our awesome founders and administrators, who despite having a mountain of personal work stacked up in front of her made time to contribute an excellent piece as the SECRET artist: our very own Poecat!

And, another special thanks to our awesome forum moderator, social media manager, behind-the-scenes issue handler, and above all talented artist Betaruga for coordinating this year's cross-Tumblr promotion and for doing TWO excellent pieces!

This whole event has me wondering if maybe there's just enough interest in dusting off an old monthly tradition from several years a decade prior... more on that later :D

It took about 4-5 hours to do, and the board was 13.5" x 21". This was done entirely by hand, with the media being pencil,
as well as pen and ink. This piece was not easy to do, and I was so worried about how it would turn out. In this piece,
Razor and Felina are fighting a creature that is not canon to the Swat Kats universe. The creature is an inspiration from many
of the epic comic book monsters I have seen, as well as a little inspiration from Mutation City, as well as the 80s comic book style
of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles. It was a last minute decision to add the fattened Swat Kats logo in there. Hope you all enjoy
the piece, as my hands can barely type.

Man, you demolished this one! :shock:
I just love the thick, greasy, grungy comic book outlines and the composition of the picture. Seeing Felina and Razor battling a giant monster with rocket launchers, captured inside of a SK logo, it looks sick. Like MoDad said, it does look like a piece of promotional artwork for the original series. And does that creature remind anyone of the Pinky demon from DooM? xD
You've outdone yourself and I really appreciate the effort you've put into it!
You've made not one but three art pieces for me and I can't thank you enough, dude. :D

So BOSS. It looks like something from printmaking. I like that you used the SK logo as a template and pumped it full of action.

Hey, thanks a lot man! Glad you dig your Turmoil (and Mutation City!) Means a lot coming from you--your work is utterly boss. Love the dynamism in your T-Bone piece! I shared it with Kobb on Tumblr!
Thanks! Mutation City may or may not be my favorite episode, so I always get a lil' bit excited whenever I see works attributed to it.

Hi Ickaimp. You did an amazing job on this, I really like it. Football would be more fun if there weren't concussions, injuries, and if it weren't such a big business.

Hearing Razor's voice narrating his own story 1st person style, it's the potential for greatness (and hilarity).

Seconded. Like last time, I'm very impressed what all of you guys have created in this art trade and it looks like everyone is happy about the image he/she received.

It's actually a bit sad though that there was some bickering going on in the background this time. I've noticed that following the events on SWAT Kats Hangar and reading MoDaD's short comment about it in this thread. But it's a relief to see that this didn't seriously harm this event (or at least it looks like that from the outside). So I think we should also thank those who took care of not letting this to get out of hand.

Great job, everyone.

So much radical SWAT Kats artwork y'all! I hated missing out on this, work was draining (one point I went 12 days straight). I love seeing the characters done in various different styles. Is the tumblr going to host all the entries as originally stated?
