Default 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.

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....

Default 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

So many ideas from so few artists. You could do one showing a foreign civilization, like a different world. We fill in cool architecture the works. Strange cool costumes.

It could be morbid or strangely sweet, but you could call one "Last Breath"

You could do a humerous. Something that's just funny when you look at it.

Or an impossible scenario, that's visually made a reality

Could come up with more, and don't know if I repeated any that have been done, but best of luck. g2g The contest helps keep me on my toes. I enjoy it. Keep the themes acomin

Why not using the contest to sensitize people about the preoccupations of our time. Again I know, but still need !
"Organic"
"ecologic behavior"
"No waste!"
"Clean energy" etc...
