Topic: Deep Sea Technology
For this grand joined activities challenge you are asked to explore the imaginary world of the deep seas. The topic is specifically designed to keep the results as broad as possibly, as the focus of this challenge is for you to come up with a wide variety of ideas and concepts.
In this special round of IDW it is your task to fill out the world of the Undersea Utopia with all kinds of things that relate to Industrial Design. This may be technology like transport for the inhabitants, but also sunken ships or exploration vehicles from the surface or props like sunken containers on the bottom of the ocean…basically, anything that can be called technology, props, or items, in one form or another.
Instead of the normal one entry per person, this time we want to see a variety of work. In the end, you will be judged on the body of work and not just on how well the final rendering of your design looks. Ideas and concepts are what this round is about. The amount of work invested in each idea or concept is up to you; 5 developed concepts with sketches to back them up, 100 thumbnails categorized on different subjects, go wild. In the end, bundle it into one image/submission and post it in the Final Burning Thread that will be put up a little later (yes, a first for IDW). Craftsmanship and presentation are important. Even though you will be judged on the ideas, you should still do a great job!
The results will be judged by both a public poll and a judging panel, as there are going to be awesome prizes for the winners!
1. Sketch, draw, design and doodle anything that comes to mind for the topic DEEP: Undersea Utopia in terms of stuff; Vehicles, breathing gear, submarines, sunken containers etc.
2. This time, focus on generating and presenting your ideas. While one sketch can sometimes be a hit, usually you'll need to work initial ideas out a bit further to come to more finalised concept. For this challenge, both are fine. You will be judged on the whole body of work, not the final render of a concept alone.
3. Go wild...
Deadline: June 30 - 11:59pm
