EOW 170/IDW Crossover :: Secret Society Headquarters
This week is a special crossover round with the Industrial Design of the Week activity, co-hosted by Pixie Trick. The EOW topic is Secret Society Headquarters while the IDW topic is to design the Secret Society's relics and any other accessories you wish to provide in addition to those items. What the society is all about is up to you, but be sure to prepare a back story to support your work.
No existing secret societies please! I'm saying this with regret because it'd be really cool to see all of your interpretations of an Illuminati monument But I digress, it's not meant to be this week. Creativity and your own imagination both come into play here and it should make for a memorable institution..
To get the most out of this topic it is best to participate in both parts though it isn't mandatory.
The IDW portion of this topic can be found here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=225752

still pretty rough
jadger loving the colours and textures in this already, loking forward to seeing more!
Maybe, just maybe I'll finish this one.
Hmm, gotta lay off the small brushes. Biggah strooks needed.
Great start peeps.

ismo: You've got a potential two of the three things on the list for IDW! The thing on the stick could be the founder's object and the panel above the wall or the framed thingies could be the oath/rules... *ahem* but of course this isn't a shameless IDW plug. Of course not.
nice start. Perhaps add some structures.
Lovely crispnes. Are you going to add some figures.
Great colors and mode. Looks almost finished. Some more details maybe.
Interesting sketches. Bottom left is my favorite.
Playing with some cut and paste
Android411 - cool start mate, dig the saturatd night colors. although i feel the sky could have a warmer blue, maybe leading to a purple?
vrt - neat start
jadger - cool construction
Ismo - nice one, like it so far, what gonna be in the jar?
Devilfruit - hey man, cant really make out the light thumbs,but i do like the shape of the building in the top right thumb.
JanJager - cool montage! nice idea that your artifact is a creature.
will upload mine once i get home, cant upload images at work. company policy.
*edit, home now. pics up!

whoa awesome stuff from everyone so far!! i am desperately in need of some more practice on my enviros, so maybe ill just do some studies before jumping in with the sharks (aka you guys!) but your all providing me with some much needed inspiration, so for that, i say thanks!!!
This is an Ottoman styled dome. The society is called the Brotherhood of Fire Salesmen. They are ancient war profiteers. Their philosophy is "God is energy. Money is the evidence of energy. God lives in our Bank Accounts."
I'm still in the middle of hatchet work. I've had alot of trouble working out the domes perspective and the dragon skeleton wrapping around it. In the end this is going to be a colorful vignette.
many great ideas and wips
@android411 i like your idea , it gave me alot of inspiration when i was thinking for ideas,when ever i hear about secret societys i always think of this group of people in old monk outfiths doing a ritual, very cool
@vrt as mentioned above, dark ritual monks in secret is that first thing that popped into my head when i saw your image, i look forward to see the final resault
@jagder i love the of sharp and textuerd edges,and the perspective seems spot on
@ismothe story behind this one has this mystique to it ,it feels like these people are rich elderly men gathering up and making up evil plans, it fiths the theme so well i hope see the final
@devilfruit out of all these i think my favorit is either top left corner or bottom left corner,
@janjager very cool idea and colours matches well
@jaroldsng i am fan of sci fi so my favorit would haft to be bottom left corner
@raoul duke very intressting perspective and i think the dragon skeleton gives it quite a nice mixture, look forward to next update
i wanted to take part in aswell IDW but no time since i will ship primary computer and tablet tomorrow
wips and final
Story: In 2015 the world stood for the first time under one banner,one nation it was not long before dictatorship corrupted the new founded worldnation and in 2019, the world was controlled by a handful of people who managed to to bride their way to power, but a secret society resistance was formed in ready to fight for the sake of the human rights and freedom,and they are spreading thro out the world ,still they are in small numbers and they keep growing stronger by each day

Haven't been brave enough to jump into the environment round, but had a good idea for this one. Different from everyone else's I wanted to do an homage to the ridiculous secret society I started with some neighborhood kids. This would be our dream treehouse.
Not half finished. Need to add clutter- comics, toys, maybe a treasure map.
Any crits would be greatly appreciated. Struggling with the lighting.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the
mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all
science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who
can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
this is what i have so far , i dont know if ill have time to finish this tho :/ ....
i was thinking of people who follow giant magician/sorcery gods have this society headquarters underground , almost like a temple with images/sculptures of gods and deities inside ... dont know exactly where ill end up with it , please help ..... :/
Decided to rework the concept I had to include a hint of scifi.
I think I'm done, so this is the final. I'm just too tired to write any back story, must sleep now. Sorry.
Suberb work Snatti.
Edit: Some corrections. Thanks JanJager, you were spot on with those crits.
Edit edit: Final touches and signature.

"You might be disappointed if you fail, but you will be doomed if you don't try"
Nice thumbnails. Second is absolutely my favorite.
Avesam I love the crispnes and atmosphere.
Great idea. Perhaps the colors a a bit saturated at this point.
I like the mode. At this point the torches looks a bit unlike the rest of the sly.
Nice Maybe have some gradient on the floor.
Great Lovely mode. Maybe the candles could cast a faint light in threes soundings and the window in the ceiling could show some more thickness
ok so this is my final >>
story : one mortal started it all, the only one who could . She could bare the burden of the secrets . The secrets that immortal wizards hold for centuries , the source of all their magic and might . Without being corrupted by the knowledge of the secret herself , the secret spread within the mortal species
and the need to keep the secret contained demanded a secret society . The burden of the secret has started to spread amongst the mortals . When the power of the secret is mis-used , the wand shows no mercy to those who may do so ... (open ended ) ...

This is the headquarters builded by some secret,powerful and intelligence human kind from the other plannet.This place located in a very deep remote somewhere around earth..They are here to stealing the unique energy from earth and sent it back to their plannet by their high-tec system.
ops..sorry for the poor english.
Hey guys the IDW portion is up for voting, no one has left crits except for myself and there are only a handful of votes in. All 3 entries are really good, in my opinion, so if you are reading this how about going over and leaving a crit or two, maybe even throwing in a vote.
Also, the next round is up for IDW, let's get more than 3 entries for this one!
This has been an IDW public service announcment
Oh by the way, I see some GREAT work here in the EOW! Keep it up.
