    Awwwesome.

    This calls for some research, man.

    I promise I'll actually try this one, this time.

    really. maybe.

    Ooh, this one may just be too good to pass up trying (even if I'm horribly rusty at drawing anything).

    * Pandemonium from Milton's Paradise Lost is definitely coming to mind. Research time!

    *(Edit 11/27/08 ) So after a little research of bell history, construction, design, and theme I made a few sketches (sadly can't upload stuff on my days off work since I don't have high speed net at home). As much as I love the decadance of Pandemonium the big challenge there is making the design hellish enough (without being cliche or too sexually themed) since a city covered in gold isn't exactly most peoples vision of hell. Decided to look into some Asian inspired designs as well, and natures version of "hell's bells"...the spiky fruited hallucinogenic plant.

    * (Edit 11/28/08 ) Finally an upload of some of meh crappy sketches:
    http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs39/f/20...ticPhoenix.jpg
    Heavily considering going with the more Asian design combined with the Datura plant inspiration. (Mostly because I've had to sketch from memory the last two days). May practice doing the Western style church bells, but my lack of skill in perspective and other issues make me cringe away from that.

    * Update: 12/02/08 Since I've never done any type of industrial design before extra time was figured into how long it would take for me to complete the project... real life got in the way a bit (although for the most part in good ways that can't be complained about). The project won't get done, but figured it would do me some good to practice rendering a bit anyway.

    Obviously need to work on my light sources a bit (as well as other things)

    Hello there everyone, this will be my first IDW... This is ridiculously cool, nay, it is simply oozing with obnoxious amounts of awesomeness
    Hope I can hack it!

    If it is worth doing, it is worth doing well.

    umm so the topic is about hell's bells - so by bells you mean bells like church bells right?
    just wanted to clear that up.

    Daestwen: You better!

    Max Challie: Hey dude good to see you in here I try to vary the topics a bit so I don't think it's that odd a topic. Just no long brief this time.

    Brewin: Uhm yes that was the basic idea off this topic. Not sure what other kinds of bells you could come up with, if it's something original and cool I might even allow it. I would advise to stick to bells as in 'church bells' though.

    Sketches I did in a night class. I'm not sure if I can finish this, nor do I like any of these sketches Don't want it to be too organic but it's steering itself that way.

    night blue: bells are typically organic because of their flowing and curvy lines. in order to make it less organic look at tighter shapes and straight lines combined with angles.

    brewin: nice ideas it'll be good to see where you take them =)

    its quite interesting, i haven't entered this before, and its quite an appealing topic, ill see if i can come up with a good idea that i can then draw...
