Contest Themes?
Hi all...

though I would start a thread where people could make suggestions for our monthly contest themes. :)

hey alex
I have so many but I will just name 4

the moment of disaster . can be anything, an earthquake , a volcano, a flood, a twister, a giant laser beam coming from the sky, a tsunami showing and indicating the power of nature over humanity. begining of destruction. I have seen devastated environment illustrations but not many dynamic disaster moment illustrations.

how about myth gods in a specific era ?
from china to europe every culture have their own myth gods .
how would they look if they appeared in the early 19ths ?
it can be another era or specific timezone. just to give an example, it can be;
post nuclear war steam punk venus.
second world war thor.

this may sound odd but , fantasy characters sports.
I would love to illustrate an orc playing basketball in middle earth.
a dark elf in his armor playing hockey on a frozen lake next to an elf village.
or they may have their own sports like tree knocking contest for dwarves? I dont know. they can be in our daily environments too. a streetball ogre?

the four element ninjas in pose.
air, earth, water, fire martial art warriors. using elemental abilities.

I'd like to see towers or overgrown scenarios:)

whatever the theme it should be something that allows almost everybody to get in....for example a theme like "Little Red" it's too restrictive.

On the other hand a theme like "At the whim of Gods" can allow everything from scenery and matte painting to concept art and characters....

something to do with spiritual worship. like churches temples etc.. or can jump to characters designs like monks priest holy men etc.....

contest title
how about

"your hero"

i think everyone should pen their own hero and esp with the flood of Marvel movies we're talking over 1 billion in sales alone on spider man X-Men etc

everyone should have a personnel hero penned

hi all :D

I thought of a topic called:

"The most (un)futuristic Weapon/Gadget/Device (etc.)"

could be a mechanic, natural, organic Weapon/Gadget/Device (etc.)
? Just got this idea...
hope it's a productive contribution...

Maybe I'll find some more ideas ^^

Cheers from Austria

I agree with Suirebit. By giving a slightly abstract theme, all different disciplines can compete and throw in their own ideas. The last few contests have been very character based, and I know a lot of us enviro guys have been waiting on a contest like this months :)
