    Icon IDW #77: Mobile Home

    IDW #77: Mobile Home

    Topic: Mobile Home

    Background: No long story here this time, the topic is pretty straightforeward. Originally suggested by Miniphase as 'portable home', though I change portable to mobile to make the topic a bit more open.

    However, this time I want to see at least three ideas for this topic included in your final entry. They must be readable, so push them a bit further than thumbnail stage. No need to add tone or colour to all the sketches. This means the final entry should have a minimum of 3 sketches (may be more ) and one final rendering of the chosen idea.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a mobile home!
    2. Include sketches in your final entry, read the brief please!
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday, September 13

    I'm going to assume it could be flying or hovering or something else as long as it's mobile and you can live in it.

    either way Im in

    Artiphats: Indeed, that's why I changed 'portable' into 'mobile'

    Oh yeah Yoitisi, quick question. Can the sketches be quick 3d renders of our idea, or do they have to be drawings?

    Digital Blacksmith: Hm good question. I think I won't forbid you to do any 3d drawings for this, but personally I think a hand drawn sketch wins it over any 3d drawings in the idea phase.

    Oh awesome. Thank you. But yeah, its just the idea phase, and we all get there in different ways. The final will be photoshop of course, but yeah, I cant draw ideas to save my life alot of the times. But pop into 3d, they start right up. Which is why I guess im the first to bring in an idea, the super redneck mobile home! For when the government is about to take the babies and communists are going to poison the water, its time to protect the family, in true southern style! Yes, I know it still needs alot done to it, and no, it wont look as pretty once done. But there is sketch numero 1!

    Digital Blacksmith I also had the idea to do tank style tracks/wheels. You beat me to it LOL. Actually mine are a different shape though so I will still post as one of my sketches. Looks good.

    wanted to post some ideas before I leave for my 9-5 today. These are just really quick, my final 3 plus 1 will probably be influenced by some of this brainstorming.

    by the way any of you guys listen to The Verve? that is some great music to draw and paint to especially their older stuff. ok I'm off.

    Concept 2 - Modern home style that flies casually through the air via large blimps. Even built with small yard for the kids and pets to play on.

    Digital Blacksmith that second one is great! Not that the first one is bad at all, cause it's a good one too.

    LOL Pulse, yeah I thought it was funny too

    Hey guys here is what I came up with so far.

    IDW #77: Mobile Home

    I'll do some more tomorrow, the flying boat ain't cool but I like the two others so I'll try to push em further.

    Digital Blacksmith: The BBQ on the tank made my giggle. Great concepts.
    artiphats: It looks good, hope to see some more soon.

    PS: I guess you can't link an image from a FTP on these boards?

    mathyg, i think the flying boat is pretty cool with the chinese theme, i like the little town at the arse end of it. be cool to see a big city on the ship but would that be an environment?

    also has anybody seen the anime movie " howels moving castle " (i saw it in a shop catalog a few years ago) ? its some big castle on legs, sort of fits the brief, check it out
    weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

    Yea I had the environment concern too after I finished it. At first I thought it as an Emperor's mobile home with the little houses at the end of it for the servitors / slaves / whatever. Thanks for the comment.

    Hoping I makesense...

    Looks like a good range of designs starting to come together.

    MathyG - size isn't so much a limiting factor as definition, if it is a group of buildings with separate individual functions it's less of a mobile home and as Pulse says more of a city which to my mind moves outside the brief. However if it was a single pagoda then it works (and it still could have defined areas for servants or services). I'd think the devision between Environment and ID would come from intent and how you choose to represent the design, so long as the design is still the focus and is clearly represented (as a single object?) it is a appropriate. The test I always try to use is to imagine that if a client (for those who aspire to such things) asked you for a design to the topic brief, would they be happy with the result?

    Digital Blacksmith - if you choose to go further with the tracked house direction you might want to remodel the lower section to make it more appropriate rather than just re-using parts of old models - if nothing else you could use it to make the design reflect function more closely and get a better scale for this part. The flying version looks interesting but maybe it could use some thought about practicality (as much is possible with an airship-borne home) and bring the details of the design closer to what would be required if a house was to fly aloft. eg. Slimming the base down to look more efficient or fixing the scale on the chains...

    Oh yeah, I plan on using ALOT more ideas once I work on the main theme. As with everyone, these are just the "sketches" im using, so of course they are not going to be perfect. Most likely ill have a more rugged and beat up set of tracks from an older style tank with open tracks, but for now, it will do for a sketch. But looking at everyones, damn, theres some awesome ideas coming.

    And finally, I present to you all, the concept which I will use. Not the redneck tank, not the modern blimp, but a palace inspired by Japanese architecture, Sun Wu Kong, and a song we all know as Castles in the Sky, I present to you, KUMO KYUUDEN!!!

    And yes I know, the clouds look like crap, but they will be alot better when done. They are just incredibly hard to make without any plugins or anything, so I made spheres to show you there is a cloud.

    I tried to do some more this morning, here's the result.

    IDW #77: Mobile Home

    The ball-looking home in the top-right corner is built to move with tornados and hurricanes safely, it floats and the bumper things are there to absorb shocks. The house itself is a sphere that floats in a fluid contained in the outer armor. allowing it to turn rotate in any direction. There is a weight at the bottom of the house (inner sphere) so the occupants don't get shacked too much. Hopefuly it makes sense.. <,< I think the others don't need much explanations.

    Edit: My image link seems broken :X Should be fixed now..

    Well, I think I am complete with my mobile home. There might be more added by the deadline, but for now, it is complete. Enjoy.

    This is Kumo Kyuuden. A Japanese palace that flies through the air on a magical cloud given by the gods.

    Well MathyG, while this one is looking good in its own rights, why did you choose this one of all? You had giant dragon cities, turtle huts, and persian palaces on steampunk hoverpods. Some of the most unique and innovative sketches ive seen in a while. But this one you did choose does have the rugged potential that alot of the others didnt have.
