Not many requirments:
-Preferably taken from the surface of a planet/moon/asteroid
-Connect the dots, and draw the figure! (Can be just a rough sketch)
-Drawing must be transparent (lines connecting stars can be solid)
-Give it a name
-Have fun with it!
Here's my entry:
"The Farmer"

Addition:
Forgot to mention, you can also make parodies of real constellations
"Leo the Lenin"

Here's one that I originally found in 0.971 and exported to RC2:
Behold...Karavis, the long-snouted alien donkey in the sky!


Without the lines:


If you search "Karavis" on the forum, you'll soon find the star and planet catalogs for it. They're in a "Work progress and public beta test" post.

Why? Are you worried it'll chase after you or something?

SpaceHopper, maybe it's because that constellation looks like a 5-legs creature?

EDIT:
Oh, wait it's a 5-legs donkey.. D:

That fifth leg is supposed to be its tail. At least it looked more like a tail when I saw it in 0.972. For some reason, a few of the stars got shifted around despite my correctly transposing the RA, declination, and distance from Earth. That's why that ear looks like a horn. The star BET Kâravis was originally at the back of the head. And one of the stars got shifted so weirdly I couldn't quite include it in the constellation anymore. You can see it rather far to the right of Karavis's front left leg. Also, the creature is supposed to be standing on top of the Milky Way. You can't see it very well because I had the planet's atmosphere turned on.

This is what it looks like with the atmosphere turned off:

You can still see the Milky Way if you have the atmosphere turned on:
