This can be something grand or rustic, new or old, modern or ancient. A very open theme that can be realized in many different ways!

good luck!!

Yay it's july again, my anual month of starting and finishing a thing. I will hopefully stick to the tradition this year too, it's a nice theme.

I think I'll be back in the action this month!

Now just need to think of an idea. I'd like to wear my architect mantle for this one, despite it being abuntantly clear that it's usually the cutesy/surreal stuff that wins.

But we'll see.

And at the same time, I'm trying to brainstorm of all the cliched ideas that will probably be entered in some fashion, here's my list so far:

- Some cutesy MC Escher reference
- Stairway leading to a spooky place (likely with a creature referenced at the other end)
- Stairway (or like) leading to heaven/hell/nowhere

Any others?

In any case, here we go again! Good luck to all!

Don't know if I will have enough time to finish it as I am not very specialised on fire effects. Let's see if i finish it.
Reidbaker, I had the same idea about Escher's infinite stairway. Good luck! and good luck to all
Man, that should be awesome. I'm definitely entering this one -- still in the ideas phase though.

Can't wait to get started. I have an Idea and concept already. Definately going to do huge elaborate stair way up to a huge cathedral. Hopefully I will be able to pull it off.

Well, I got my idea I think; it's a project about vertical layers of a city with a splash of surreal-ism.

This will be a vertical cutaway (with some perspective of course):

Essentially the top layer will be a city scape with different scales of buildings and simple natural elements. I won't go too crazy with it, there will be stairs such as fire escapes and going into buildings, then prominently in the scene, a subway staircase will lead down into the subway. From the subway, a maintenance shaft will have stairs leading down into the sewers (which will will be kind of romanticized with stone and exposed water. Water will even pass from the street level behind the subway into the sewers. From there, a small water level beneath the sewers will go in-front of the stairs going down into the next level which will be scaffolding type stairs of varying quality leading down into a slight labyrinth of a shanty town (I was going to do an idea similar to this with last month's but didn't have time and now this month is far more appropriate) sort of a 'world below). It will have an eclectic look to it with lights and pipes all over.

I know that's a big block of text, but there's a lot to go into it, the stairs will basically act as vertical stitches throughout the cutaway.
