    Oh I'm sorry, I'm tracking so many things at the same time, I totally forgot which thread I was in. I'll leave the schematic though, it might just illustrate my point better...

    very orderly way of thinking.

    ilae..dear..I would never hit you. with anything .I dont hit....well except with large words now and then.... but you are quite capible of remasticating them....

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Here are some vids to spark the ideation process.

    This one is about more prehistoric sea monsters / creatures. Pretty damn cool

    A sideshow of weird sea fairing oddity's.

    Another sideshow of seafaring and non seafaring creatures with a weird sea creature/mermaid ( probably fake )

    More fun stuff here

    Our submission won't be judged under individual ideas but as a whole... those it mean that all of my ideas need to fit within the same "utopia"?

    Some of my ideas don't fit with each other but could make sens if understood as two different utopia. Do I have to gamble on only one of those set of concepts?

    I'm an art junkie and you're my fix!

    I thought up the story first and I'm sort of just trying to maintain cohesiveness to the storyline...

    I'm looking forward to my POW!, i havn't exercised my storytelling skills in forever.

    However I think they mentioned somewhere that they don't have to be from the same world...don't you think you'd score more points for pulling it all together though?

    I'm having a blast...

    I'm just slightly worried that since my entries will be spread around the different challenges, it'll be hard to get the whole idea if they're not making sure to look at all submissions by a person one by one... Is there any way we can use to "tie" them together? Like an image at the beginning of the post with the basics, and saying which weeklies you have entered?

    Well if your doing COW and EOW. Just put some of you COW creatures into the Enviroment you did. Or if you have a color palate in mind that could help tie some of your ideas together. Hope this helps and best of luck!

    Raph el Junkie: That is basically up to you, you might even want to go for a different utopia for each activity. However, when doing it this way I think it's usefull if you make sure that we as viewer can distuingish it from each other. The best way to approach it I think is to imagine you're doing work for a game/movie/story: you can come up with multiple styles to approach a single project, after which one is chosen and worked out further over the full width of the project. So either go for defining a couple of styles or languages or pick one style and work it out. You could do both (or something completely different), but that might become even more complicated The point is, it's up to you to present it to us the viewer so we can understand what you're going for.

    man, youtube is indeed a goldmine for all kinds of odd undersea creatures. How can you be creative when nature itself has done all the work for you?

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    you know if you are doing more than one... it might be a good idea to put links for the others in each final
    just to keep us from having to keep track
    would be helpful

    QwestionZah' !

    Ideas ideas ideas.. Are we, the community, together creating a huge epic world? with like 50 different kinds of humanoid species living in it, and 50 different top of the food-chain creatures that easily can destroy 5 solar systems?
    or.. are we trying to design a world of our own, ending up with 50 different worlds?
    Cause.. I can do both ;P

    I think we are all doing or won little worlds. No need to collaborate with the others. If you don't want to. I think?

    DefiledVisions: Serpian said it already, but in this case you're working on your own interpretation of the Underwater Utopia. In the poll and for the big prize you will be judged on your own work. If you like to team up with someone to work both on the same world, that's okay, only keep your work and your partners work seperated in your own posts to make judging possible

    I directly had to think of the Aquanox/Archimedean Dynasty Games. Randis Albion did the Designs. The games belong to my favourite ones. Great dark atmosphere. You should check them out.

    Go back to the very first post in this thread, you will see that Davi has posted links to each activity:

    Creature of the week
    Character of the week
    Environment of the week
    Industrial design of the week
    Panels of the week

    Each link takes you to a thread with further info on that specific activity, and that thread is also the place to post your WIPS (works in progress)-- click the different links to see what I mean. Closer to the deadline, each activity will have a new/separate thread for the final submissions. It would be good to hang out in the threads of the activities you wish to enter, and get a feel for what's going on. The discussions that happen within those threads are also valuable.

    I was just wondering if it would be useful to set up an area within the community activities forum where people can post all their work for the different categories in their own unique thread? Seeing as the judged part of the prize is looking at overall contribution in multiple fields it'd be handy to have the ability to look at an individual's work as a whole in isolation from everyone else's. I guess that people are posting their individual work in their sketchbooks, but like I say, it's be nice to have easy access to everyone's body of work without having to go through each sub forum's WIP thread. I understand that this might be a ball-ache to organise, just thought I'd suggest it.

    i got a question/suggestion.

    i can see that each "challenge" section is entitled to include their respective
    images. but..

    since alot of us (myself included) are doing this challenge in multiple areas of
    design, i cant see why the finals thread shouldnt be a combined one.

    i mean f.x i have alot of characters, but i also got some envos to back them
    up. furthermore those envos have creatures that live there sketched out in
    other images still. i mean, if it really is about the ideas and workload, us
    participating would have it a lot easier to manage and compile our work.

    furthermore its not hard to judge the pieces individually (here i mean category)


    i just think that with what ive got so far, i would hate to see it break apart
    into multiple threads...

    thats just my 2c
