mmmm, this is tough.

1. Maybe some real production mattepainting. Like set extensions? You can post 1 - 4 images that the challengers can choose and create a real world set extension. Something more realistic or close to it.

2. Interior mattepainting (this is tougher i bet)

3. The desert / or wilderness, something that would require an epic like scenery.

4. Here's one challenging idea, create a scene where a modern city has been turned in to a jungle after thousands of years. Imagine the Aztecs yet applied to a modern city.

5. Concept to matte - We start off with a concept art from any known artist and we build a mattepainting based on that concept. So the concept must be made by someone else, you could have 4 selections of this too. (This might just be fun!)

Hope that helps
