    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    How about portraying a Space Opera?

    covers a broad enough range for everyone to get involved

    could be composed like a movie poster, an event in a story (big explosions are always fun) or the hero/anti hero with his beautiful untrustworthy sidekick standing beside him haha

    or maybe even someting from a story thats already been produced.

    the people pick, the most inspiring piece wins or however these things are judged


    The atrocities commited in life are matched only by the vast abyss of the imagination.

    Concept Challenge: Two Airships very high in the atmosphere at sunset

     

    The Details: A sky scene with two airships as the focus.  These airships look corporate.  These are very high-end, sleek, and elegant.  As a secondary focus, large clouds of what look like peaceful, luminescent fireflies.  The goal of the airships seems to be meeting with these fireflies.  A tertiary detail would be that the decks of both ships seem to be hosting a black tie affair and some of the women are noticeable pregnant.

     

    -From a short story I wrote a while back where a corporation cornered the market on conception after women stopped naturally conceiving.

    Concept Brief: A cityscape of an adventuring town carved into the bedrock of a quarry.

    Details: Looking to the north, across the deep and wide river there is a city carved into a quarry which is tucked into the foothills beyond.  The only course to the city is by a single ferry large enough to carry carts, carriages, and, of course, adventurers.  The west side of the city is very course and low end.  It is a training ground created by a collective of guilds.  This older part of town eventually drew others due to its safety.  The east side of town is more of a higher class area.  There is a single main road and a gate connecting the two parts of the city.  On the east side there are wooden and brick buildings, shops, etc. and a single, elegant estate.

    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    Just a couple ideas:

    As a theme: "Sound and fury, signifying nothing"

    "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster." 

    or some other famous quote, preferably with a twist. 

    Or have people choose one of their favorite Sci-fi/fantasy book covers to reinvent.

    Perhaps that last one is too over-generalized...?

    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    Below is a short story written by a friend of mine some time ago,

    The challenge would be to produce an acompanying image/set of images of any part of the story or perhaps a 'cover' for the book that would be a collection of stories about the main character Ezekiel? 

     

    They had been pushed hard and had finally reached the relative safety of the village after fighting a desperate retreat that galled their dwarfen pride. Several times Gasten had been forced to pull some of his more excitable brethren from skirmishes that threatened to slow their defensive manoeuvre and find them surrounded by the chaos hordes.

    Taint right you know! opined Domner the ranger Captain during a moments lull in the barrage of attacks by the crazed Zealots,

    Taint right you know! opined Domner the ranger Captain during a moments lull in the barrage of attacks by the crazed Zealots,

    Id rather make a final stand than all this bloody scamperin bout

    Id rather make a final stand than all this bloody scamperin bout

    Gasten couldnt agree more, but he prided himself on his loyalty and honour to the Empire he had sworn to aid, a loyalty repaid in kind many times during the life of his father and the numerous Greenskin invasions of his childhood. So he prayed for forgiveness from his ancestors and noted all the grudges that he dreamed of one day repaying. For now though he must concentrate on the duty of preparing for the final push that the enemy hoped would finally break the empires right flank and lead to the resounding victory that had seemed so close at hand for the past several days.

    The stone courtyard where they now stood offered only one avenue of attack and only one of escape should the tide of battle not be turned. Gastens decision to lead the remainder of his troops here had been a desperate one and their odds of survival were extremely thin; after the shame of having to retreat form the battle field Gasten realised he would have had it no other way. The chance to stand toe to toe with the enemy and attempt to overcome overwhelming odds was all the dwarfs around him would ask for.

    So the anvil on which many foes had broken themselves was to be formed, perhaps the wheels could be put in motion to create the hammer also, if only time allowed..

    The rangers and all those who could be spared from the main fighting force were dispatched with ranged weapons to the upper storeys of the stone and brick built buildings that surrounded the square and many were the grunts and sighs of disapproval that came from those who believed this a very un-dwarfish task they had been set.

    Rune priests scampered around laying their markings on every defensible position within the courtyard before turning their attention to armour, weapons and their fellow defenders. They came last to the group of volunteers who were to form one of the most feared ‘tactical’ squads of the Runehammer Clan,

    The Slayers. They stripped of their armour and handed it to those who had lost theirs in the previous battles They then finished off what beer they had upon them as the Rune Priests etched the most powerful and dangerous runes directly into their skin and added the ink blessed by their ancestors in a ritual as old as the clan itself.

    Gasten addressed the remainder of his force who had formed a tight line three dwarfs deep and the width of the square,

    My brothers! If we are to die this day be safe in the knowledge that our grudge will be repaid a thousand times upon the filth we now stand against and we shall find our selves honoured in the halls of our ancestors whose proud and honourable company we shall keep for the rest of time!

    My brothers! If we survive this day we will repay this grudge ourselves, a fury the likes of which has never been known. We have been given the honour of holding this position by our friends who entrust us to put down the hordes of the vile gods who would destroy our clan and all that we hold to. I ask of you one thing, hold this line! BY OUR REVERED ANCESTORS THIS LINE SHALL NOT FALL!!

    From the dwarfs came a roaring cheer, an oath to complete this task or die trying, shields and weapons raised a thunderous rumble of defiance that could be heard for a mile echoed out from the village square.

    Gasten took up his position within the centre of the ranks to await the hordes of the bloodied one and thought of the last time he had stood upon this very spot only a week ago.

     

    Ezekiel these villagers should have been moved on by now

    The warrior priest looked down upon his dwarfen ally who had fought many battles by his side.

    My esteemed friend, these people will not leave this village, where would they go?

    They could hide and return when the battle is won

    The mark of chaos will then taint this land replied Ezekiel his voice low and patient. He ran his hand over his bald plate and lowered his huge frame to one knee so their faces were at the same level.

    Chaos taints all it touches- souls and land alike. It twists them into perversions of nature and its foul stain is nigh impossible to remove while sustaining the object that it corrupts

    Are you saying a soul can be cleansed after it has been all but lost to chaos?

    No my friend a soul is different - once lost to chaos it can only be destroyed by the might of Sigmar. It is lost to the void forever - many are the warriors who need to be slain after a confrontation with the Dark Gods - even following a victory - to ensure the Empire is pure.

    The dwarf looked around at the people of the village. They were giving everything they had to the armies that were passing through, several of the communities elderly had died through exhaustion or starvation in order to secure every last morsel of food for the warriors of the Empire.

    This village, its physical manifestation - the buildings and the houses - will also be razed to the ground continued Ezekiel, but for now it will be left

    The dwarf looked up at the priest as he stood and walked away,

    Why not destroy it now? he enquired

    Without looking back the Ezekiel answered in a regretful voice,

    Three days later the forces of the Runehammer Clan were charged with the defence of the right flank. Gasten felt the pull of memory, recalling his last conversation with his friend Ezekiel,

    This village…” he thought the final fall back position..what else did Zeke tell me?..

    Gasten was pulled from his reverie by the sound of the first shot from his rangers. The sound of a hundred CRACKs answered it as the horde charged, slithered and crawled into view. First came the Zealots and Wyrd Spawn, jostling and trampling each other in their impatience to reach the enemy. Behind them, still out of range of the gunshot were the Champions of Khorne in their full plate chaos armour, bloodied by battle and twisted by devotion.

    A number of Zealots fell to a well placed bomb hurled from the second story window of the town house and many more fell to arrows and powder charges but still they came, whipped up into a fury by their bloodlust.

    The Slayers began to pound on each other with fists, head butting their fellows in order to build their berserk fury. As they began to froth at the mouth the Rune Priests awoke the markings in their skin and the slayers charged the host.

    Gasten followed them until they were lost in the mass of on-rushing bodies. He saw several covered in the blood of enemies, their runes giving out an unworldly light, their axes falling and rising in great sweeps and arcs, who had made it to the rear ranks of the enemies first wave. They broke out from the back and bellowed a huge war cry as they continued toward the knights that followed.

    The line of dwarfs raised shield and weapon as the horde lurched on, a sea of red, gold and black, twisted forms and savage banners, steel and spikes.

    Bellows and war cries drifted away as Gasten raised his axe, Deliverer, a gift from Zeke during their last campaign together, and charged toward the oncoming horde,

    FOR THE FALLEN!!! he heard himself cry as Deliverer swam with purple fire and bit into the skull of the nearest foe.

    Irresistible force met immovable object and as the sea of the host broke against the rock of the dwarf force the ancestors of the Runehammer Clan shook with the anger of the Ages and answered with a war cry of their own.

     

     

    **************************************************************************************

     

     

    A hand as large as his skull lifted Gastens head and placed it on a supporting knee. He swam in and out of consciousness where time was as nothing.

    A glowing hammer and the bellow of Sigmars name

    The crack of thousands of pistols, hooves and gentle words drowning the sound of battle.

    Screams of pain and the rushing of wind.

    Quiet………………………

    Sigmar foresaw your valiant stand and allowed me to glimpse the fall of the village to those we shall not name. I am sorry to have left you to this fate but my ministrations were required elsewhere. When the opportunity arose I met with the reserves who were to strengthen the main force and bought them here.

    With Ezekiels help he sat and surveyed the square. Bodies lay all around him twisted by axe and sword or by the vile magic of chaos.

    When I arrived the main body of your force was spent. The Rangers, out of ammunition, were jumping from the windows of the buildings with axe and shield or, as in the case of Domner, holding explosives in a last attempt to stem the flow of chaos.

    Gasten looked into the eyes of his friend and saw sadness with a slight edge of guilt. Pain flared through his battered body and swiftly passed.

    Ezekiel dropped the knife to the ground and kissed the dwarfs forehead,

    Chaos must not be allowed a chance to take hold, my friend.

    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    Not a theme suggestion but a suggestion regarding the challenge :)

    Seeing as the mods are setting the themes now, why not set the new one up at the same time the previous one finishes?

    That would give people the full 7 days for a 1week challenge.

    Unless I am missing something I don't see why that's not possible now.

    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    From the suggestions given, it seems some people are having problems understanding the concept of the concept challenge, and haven't bothered their arses to read any of the linked thread.

    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    Character Name: BG44-001 the Bodygaurd

    Brief: a full 3/4 pose and a portrait showing facial details

    Character Description: based in the 22nd century. People live in a time of the very rich and the very poor and the very rich need to protect themselves. Not trusting just anyone with their lives, they fund the manufacture of a personal cyborg bodygaurd. The bodies and brains of severly injured top ranked soldiers and police officers are brought off the government and fused with robotic accessories and upgrades as well as a chip that eliminated "free will" within the newly created cyborg. The operation scars and robotic upgrades are displayed as it is thought the grotesque nature of the sight of the cyborg acts as a deterrence. Infact, it was encouraged for the surgeons to "not worry about making the cyborg pretty"

     Character Name: Peppo the Detective

     Brief: a full front view and a scene showing the character in action

    Character Description: based in a surreal 1920's. Peppo is an accomplished freelance private dectective. He is quick witted, highly intelligent, charming and courageous...shame he is from the highly secrective and rare race of urban gnomes! Peepo stands 3ft tall and carries mementos of old crime cases around with him. Urban gnomes historically make the best detectives, since their race is so secrective, none of them know who they are related too and spend their life trying to find out.

     Characte Name: Blissilla the murderous prostitute

    Brief: a full front and side view with optional 3/4 view

    Character Description: the year is 4024. Many alien races co-exist and live together and Blissilla is from the solarite alien race which is deemed to be the most beautiful and highly desired alien race! Solarites are entirely female and pride themselves on be reknown for their pleasuring prowess and often compare "conquests" when they meet, so it common to see Solarites working as prostitutes when they are away from their home galaxy. Solarites are also known for colour changing capabilities which is thought to be a genetic trick they use to attract all types of races. Sadly, Blissilla got addicted to a rare expensive space drug which a customer introduced her to which creates euphoric highs but effects Solarites in a different way...it triggers psychotic murderous tendencies!

     lol, that was more fun then drawing the thing!

    Correct. Thanks for the suggestions so far everyone, but please make sure you understand the new format before posting here. Some of the suggestions so far are either more suited to the old format, or are outside the remit of the weekly and fit more with the rebels challenges.

    Correct. That could happen, and it would have happened last night with the very first one, except that I was busy deleting the mass spam dumped on the forum.

    NO MORE DISCUSSION IN THIS THREAD, COMMENTS THAT ARE NOT THEME SUGGESTIONS BELONG IN THE OTHER THREAD!

    Re: Weekly concept challenge - theme suggestions

    While I like the idea behind the planned changes, I'm a little concerned about how long the ideas will keep coming. With that in mind, here are a few suggestions, although I'm not sure how detailed you want them:

    Concept:
    Diablo bar interior
     
    Brief:
    Produce a full colour interior of a cyberpunk bar. Both populated or empty is acceptable.
     
    Description:
    Diablo's is a notorious night spot in the rough area of town and a popular haunt for gangers, loners and guns for hire. Consisting of two floors, one being the main bar with plenty of nooks and crannies for clandestine meetings, while the other contains the dance floor.
     
     
    Concept:
    Black River Pass
     
    Brief:
    Produce an environmental piece of a treacherous river pass.
     
    Description:
    A valuable trade route for merchant caravans, but also a dangerous one. The narrow trail snakes it's way along the valley walls, offering little protection to falling rocks, while far below the turbulent rapids of the Black River claim any unfortunate enough to loose their footing.
     
     
    Concept:
    Knife of the Ancients
     
    Brief:
    Produce a design for a sacrificial knife, including close-ups of areas of detail.
     
    Description:
    A wicked looking knife as long as an average mans fore-arm, used by high priests to sacrifice their unfortunate victims to long dead gods.
     
     
    Concept:
    Hercules class battle armour
     
    Brief:
    Produce front, side and rear views of power assisted battle armour. An optional 3 1/4 view may also be produced.
     
    Description:
    The Hercules battle armour is designed to be the heavy weapons unit for a squad of power armour enabled infantry. Typically outfitted with either a high capacity machine gun (fixed or rotary barrel) or a semi-automatic grenade launcher the armour is not designed to be subtle. Often used to draw enemy fire, the Hercules is heavily armoured and capable of carrying enough ammo or reloads for sustained encounters.
     
     
    Concept:
    Retro Sci-Fi Space Ship
     
    Brief:
    Produce a design for a retro inspired space ship.
     
    Description:
    The ship of choice for an intrepid inter-galactic hero! Powered by the newest of new-fangled science, the vessel is a mass of levers, buttons and things that go 'vizzt'! Available in racing red or sexy silver.
