♫♪ I want a dream Rover / So I don't have to rove alone ♫♪

Welcome Fark Artists to your Fartist Friday Contest. This week we celebrate the Perseverance landing with a F'Artiste tribute to Mars and its rovers. Design your own Dream Mars Rover or Mars Gadget using any medium: Pshop, MS Paint, Giphy, pen & paper, etc.

A Mars Rover with a microphone, cool helicopter AND it poops out Mars samples? Well Perseverance beat ya to it! A Mars rover with a 3D printer AND an Easy-Bake oven? A Mars drone that sprints samples back to Earth AND shoots fireworks out its butt? The sky's the limit!

Contest Rules:

One (1) individual entry item per post please, and a total of three (3) entries posted maximum allowed per person.

All votable entries must follow the theme requirements: Design your own Dream Mars Rover or Mars Gadget using any medium: Pshop, MS Paint, Giphy, pen & paper, etc.

Prize: Bragging rights and a mention in the Fark NotNewsletter!

Hearty congratulations to last week's contest winner, N8ball!

FFFUQ (Fartist Friday Frequently Unasked Questions):

What?
Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme please post it here or send it along to Farkback.

Why? Show off your skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and be sure to vote for your favorite entries.

When? This contest is submitted on Thursdays with entry open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!), then it goes to the Main Page on Friday. Entries close around midnight Eastern on Sunday night. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

How Does Voting Work? Please check the "Enable voting for this entry" box. If you forget, report it and ask, we'll do our best to turn it on for you. We consider an entry to have been submitted for entry consideration by default so please mention if you prefer voting be disabled in your post.

Check out past F'artiste contests by clicking on the Topic Tag, and check the weekly Fark NotNewsletter for info on that week's contest theme ahead of time. All skill levels encouraged (as you can see from mine!) and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.

I am not sure how people are supposed to show their artistic abilities when you are dictating the subject matter as well as the medium.  Just my two cents...

I appreciate your input. Each week the Fartist Friday Contest has a new theme, sometimes based on something in the news or a holiday theme. Like other Fark contests we have a theme each time too.

Sometimes for Fartist Friday we have a single medium, like highlighting our MS Paint skillz, and sometimes (like this week) it's any medium you'd like to use.

Man, I hope that doesn't disqualify me. Sorry. Sorry everyone. Oh, and the Mechanical Pencil is cursed (-2 for drawing).

My favorite part is putting "steering" in quotes. Would that I had more than one vote to give!

Thanks! It's important to note that you don't go to Mars to drive somewhere interesting or make friends. You go there to smash shiat and shoot stuff that looks interesting.

For "science".
