-The Edge of the Abyss
-In the Midst of a SuperStorm
-Standing in a Watchtower at the edge of a town peering out to the valley of the Unknown.
-An orbiting civilization, circling in close proximity around a Red Dwarf star.
(I saw on a show that those will be the last sources of energy when the universe dies)
-Zombie Nesting grounds
-Inside a Hallucination
A planet - compressed gas-giant externally, with an interior space that is similar to Earth, yet more hilly, strange creatures and a beautiful tower where the pregnant woman Dajeil Gaelian lives; she can see the sky, but she has cameras that let her see the gas-giant, sky, land and water creatures. Maybe a two-part - paint the tower and its surroundings, and then the interior of the tower in her living space, which somehow displays all the different environments outside.
Confused? Read Excession, by Iain M. Banks.
ok first time posting ideas here, let's see... how about:
village built to withstand an attack - attack from what? up to the artist to decide and create a story there.
ruins under the snow - ancient ruins in an antarctic type of region, or just in a winter? or something else?
town being torn apart by a tornado - nuff said
coming up with some nice stuff here people.
A 1930s/40s bar or lounge of Jazz cafe that could feature in a film noir. Think fedora hats, trench coats, babes in red, cigarettes, neon lights.
"outside the box"
The Butcher's Ballroom
-Steampunk underground (train system)
well.. anything steampunk realy hehe =D
you know the current EOW is totally ripe for steampunking.. a la Jules verne surprised no one has taken it that way
The End of the Line
Deep Ocean Door
The Light House (think about it in terms not only related to the tower type near the sea)
The Great Barrier
The Fifth River
Two Worlds and a Door
Magic World/City at the Peak of Industrial Age
another idea I had was,
Ideal Future or not so Ideal Future ; not too distant, maybe year 2100 a.d.
Could make it more exciting by making it New Years eve 2100 I think it's year of the monkey if anyone was wondering. Thoughts to ponder would be how do people get around in the future, what's changed ? has climate change been halted and earth is recovering, or has extinction and disease gone rampant ? population dwindle due to food and water how does this effect how people live in the future, is travel between relatives common from moon to earth, have space elevators been installed in every major city, does every large factory / company have it's own space elevator ? has sattelite use been so excessive that space travel from earth is dangerous or non plausible, how can this be shown in a single image. What contemporary technology has been abandoned or banned in the future ? do people get around using pipes like super mario ? could go anywhere.
Can i make my suggestion more based around description rather than a few words because most likely in the industry thats what you'd get<- apparently.
The people return to their war-screwed town hoping to find the survivors under the vast wreck of spangled metal and concrete who suffered the result of mistakes made by worthless people.
Mars. Once an hostile place, now and sprouting ground for war-mongers to produce weapons without the overlook of their superiors
Moon and earth meet in new-york. What happens next?
Millitary space ship control room/command centre/medical bay/engine room...ect
non-humanoid alien species millitary base (really push the non-humanoid part)
united space nations confrance hall
epicly huge alien beasts graveyard (similar to an elephant graveyard)
futuristic multi-lane highway
ancient alien races war machine ruins
doggy heaven (lol)
Ha, Vulgar, good one!
snow mountain spaceport
desert planet outpost
evil underground lair
less specific, more general
I am currently in the market for a small icon to give EOW winners. I will be handled somewhat like CHOW. where putting your icon in your avatar is voluntary
but as the winners thread is being updated I really want more recognition for the people who do such amazing work.
so any of you who might be inspired to make an EOW icon..Im taking submissions
Also I m planning to start offering the winners the option of choosing the next topic. only choosing them myself in default. So if you really want controll over the topics? GET ttto work! hehehe
a redesign of affordable housing for the American midwest - specifically designed with extreme weather in mind (tornados, epic snowfall, flooding) - or along the same line, a redesign, but keeping the historical flavor, of affordable single family dwellings in New Orleans that are built with the ever increasing intensity of hurricanes in mind - for example flooding and high winds resistant.
Seedy Side of Robot City
(Abandoned ?) Train Station (Skytrain Station for Hideyoshi and Vulgar`)

The username of the previous winner, free to interpret as an ervironment
how about a series of topics, something to help my Third Earth sketchbook. Maybe reflect into the other weekly design challenges. Consider this:
1000 years into the future, far beyond technology and what we know as the vision of the future to a world as a endless landscape of buildings. The society is harmonious of art, science, and religion. In their technology, a fluid biomechanica hybrid of both cybornetic sentinence and a living, breathing organism.
However, after a apocolyptic asteroid event drives out 95% of the world's population to escape to the stars, leaving behind others to fend for themselves in the aftermath.
Time passes, almost 3000 years since the disaster.
The ones who left for the stars, The Journeymen (now, some hyper-advanced hybrid of fluid machine and bioorganism. More or less human a result of living in space and alien breeding with various advance humaniod alien cultures) return to Earth, after hundreds of years of searching for their vestigial home. Upon landing, they find the distant descendants of the survivors, a culture of technologically inclined primatives in a vast, lush jungle planet (Earth undergone a climate hyper-restoration from the greenhouse gases. The planet's landmasses are 80% covered in thick woodlands, wild jungles, or dark forests of immense trees of at least 100 feet. The animals have balloned in size, almost 100 fold their present sizes. Imagine a spotted salamander a 100 feet long!)
The primatives discover one Journeyman sent on a mission of discovery and peace. The Journeyman (for the story's purpose, I'll name Anuk.) is taken into the cultures of various clans around whats left of the world: North America's wastelands; the myst-shrouded ruins of Asia; etc...
He takes sketches in his digital log to take back interpretative accounts from the planet before he is to return to the stars.
So, yes, think a bit future anachronism: hover sailcraft, propelled by a thrust vector but steered by a animal hide sail (IDW idea?). Tribal clansmen herding immense reptiles and mammals to power huge convoys in the dense of the jungles (CDW / CHOW)...
Well i hope this starts some ideas...
