Idea 1:

I have an idea. How about a theme of the ocean. But than with a sinking object in it. And that object can be object of choise, so i can be a planecrash with lots flames, or a train half on fire with people on it trying to escape, or lots of people drowning, or a refridgerator with a sea filled with chees and milk, or a car with broken glass etc, you name it. What you think is worth drawing.

Idea 2:

Or another theme is, how about you got frozen in for 40 years and you just woke up out of that, how would the sky look like. So if you where in the sky, above the clouds, what would the city look like that has been build there.

Idea 3:

An old arena, like the collesium, but you can choose the battle type. So instead of lions eating humans, you could make a street fighter battle in there, or perhaps alot of bunkers with a swat team trying to defeat the backery guys, trowing large bread sticks to their faces. Or the egypts who have their small pyramids in their arena's calling upon horus to defeat the smily gory amazon creatures the roam the arena.

Idea 4:

Another idea is depth. Create the best picture that pictures perspective. So the point is to create great depth inside the picture, perhaps a picture that makes you dizzy, from a person that stands close to camera and is watching to the ground, but its drawn in a way that makes you dizzy.

Idea 5:

Vegetation, who can make the most convincing city that has been taken over by growing elements. Plants, trees, monkeys, birds, moss, people cannot live in this city anymore and the city is totally crumbled, filled with vegetation and animals.

Idea 6:

Create the tennis court from the future. Say 2078, it sounds stupid because a tennis court isn't very interesting, therefore its a good concept idea. Try to see who can create the most convincing new idea.. Do whatever you want with this concept. I like thisone.

Idea 7:

This idea is based upon the fact that people get bullied alot in highschool. Can you draw the emotion of what that feeling would look like. For example a very black maze , with large shadows of the people that bully you and a small jar with you in it, stuck and you cant do anything. So draw emotion. Its very hard to do, but also a challenge.

Hope this where some fun ideas and perhaps you find something in it that is worthy for a challenge...

Thanksgiving is coming. What about something like "The Turkey's Revenge" or something along those lines?

You know, I didn't even think for a moment about the fact that this is an international board and not everyone would have a thanksgiving day. My first post and already I make with the bad impressions. Sorry about that.

Okay. A good universal suggestion...

Ever watch those campy live action Japanese shows like Kamen Rider, Ulraman or Super Sentai? Something like that could be fun. Especially the giant robot battles.

Idea: I know threedy is a 3d/2d forum but perhaps we could have a testrun at a photo competition?
It's an artform which a lot of people find fun. So I think a lot of people would join in

Jeeeeeziz its been longer than moses' beard since ive been here.Feels good te be back!
really loving some of the ideas posted here for the new speed painting challenges!!!
here's a few more that might tickle someones pickle:
How's about taking any inanimate everyday object, mobile/cell phone, laptop, mug, chair, whatever and make into something ominous and life threatening, make it a huge mechanical death trap...whatever, just take a normal object and make it as dangerous as possible.
here's a election of words that might pop out an idea:
Despair
Collapse
tranquility
ominous (yes i love that word hahahaha)
duel
stand off
stalemate
relief

what about maybe taking two periods in history and combine them to create a character/weapon/vehicle?for example combine the American civil war and the stone age

ok...thats enough gumf outta me.
catch yez all soon

Cheers and beers :]#

how about a picture that represents an emotion, so make the picture a bit abstract, but shows an emotional theme, this could run with things like love, happiness, sadness etc, it all works, I was mainly thinking about environment rather than people to widen the range to more than expression.

Warrior animals.

Maybe something culinary. Like creative ways to cook an egg or sea creatures working at a sushi bar or the gourmet kitchen of the future.

Edit: Or how about this; If you've ever seen an old sci-fi, you know that we were supposed to be living like the Jetsons or getting Lost in Space like the Robinson family by time this new mellinium rolled around.

So how about a theme of '2009 according to old sci-fi.' Maybe we should be thwarting numerous giant creatures with the help of Ultraman or fighting aliens in transistor powered exo-suits or maybe jetpack-clad secret agents should be spying in an outerspace cold-war. All by 1997.

I dunno. Just spitballing.

-Matt
