    these are just suggestions or starting points. if you use any I'd suggest better wording them

    It came from:
    (insert almost anything)
    the sea
    the sky
    space
    mars
    underground
    new york city
    etc

    prehistoric underwater civilization
    dragons are the new dogs
    a person after 10000 years of evolution

    Lol I like it!

    OK then lets see...

    Eternal Darkness
    Rage against the machine
    sleep walking
    forever light
    slapstick
    Drunk Love
    And I like Noodles idea "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence"

    Sorry lots of randomly vague shitty topics
    My bad,
    matt

    here's an idea of mine,

    draw the world trough the eyes of an animal..
    so like a dog, cat , fish, cow birds.. penguins.. xD
    that way we would have alot of variation.. especially in the enviroments

    Hmmm.... I wondered through iTunes and picked the most image-provoking song titles I could find:

    Between the Absu of Eridu and Erech
    Nunbarshegunu
    In the Name of Auebothiabaithobeuee
    Fire Above, Ice Below
    She Painted Fire Across The Skyline
    The Misshapen Steed
    Hallways Of Enchanted Ebony
    As Embers Dress The Sky
    Enter the Hall of Ice
    Where Silent Gods Stand Guard
    The Dragons' Flight Across The Waves
    Guardians Of Asgaard
    Varyags Of Miklagaard
    Regret
    Feel
    Destiny
    Goodbye Cruel World
    Argael... A Wisdom Called Hate
    Trapped Under The Iron Sky
    Shipwrecked Frontier Pioneer
    Fire
    Earth
    Water
    Air
    Unquestionable Presence
    An Incarnation's Dream
    ...black wings
    She Came In Through The Bathroom Window
    Exospacial Psionic Aura
    Behind the Wall of Sleep
    Children of the Grave
    Procession Of The Dead Clowns
    Still Day Beneath the Sun
    Blackwater Park
    Beneath the Mire
    The Night and the Silent Water
    To Bid You Farewell
    Holy Tears
    Charmicarmicarmicat Shines to Earth
    The Repellent Scars Of Abandon And Election
    The Shrine Of Mad Laughter
    Chaining The Katechon


    ... I could go on for days and days but it's late and I need some rest. I hope those suggestions suffice.

    Sentient war machine
    A living machine used for war that has a will and character of its own.

    When all else fails...
    A final idea or effort to solve a hopeless situation.

    Primal god
    A worshipped creature, being or apparition that resembles an animal that holds certain traits. i.e Lion = Pride, courage, determination, strength. Owl = Wisdom, enlightenment, patience.

    The last of its kind
    Many ways to translate this idea into a concept. It might be the last creature of an ancient, thought to be extinct race, or an old, rusty gas driven vehicle driving alongside a group of futuristic cars powered by environmental-friendly technology.

    Guys we should have a topic vote. Not just one person pick out of the topic suggestions. Every time theres a suggestion, the one with the most people saying they'd like to do it wins.

    Some the topics have been kind of random, all names of songs and stuff that doesn't make much sense. The other things your chosing are pretty hard to illustrate. I really like 64 though, really awesome a bit like the old teen challenges.

    I vote for

    The ice queen
    The shadow hunter
    Demon of destruction.

    Ahhh man ross too many good ideas, you gotta share your brains with me.

    Couple quickies before I go on Vacation. ( Yay!)

    Arctic meets Equator (For environment, creature, character, scene -- whatever!)
    Horizon Eater
    Saint Elmo's Fire
    The Tooth Fairy
    Epidermis Monster
    City of Tar
    Psychic Fishing
    PTD (Psychically Transmitted Disease, would require designing the disease itself. Art side might include symptoms, the virus/bacteria that cause it, or someone in the process of transmitting it/being afflicted by it, or even a public service announcement like those old "Syphillis is the Enemy!" posters )
    Absurd flying creature (ex: How do you get a large animal aloft, in a feasible manner? Magic counts but must be explained.)

    how about just very basic stuff?
    maby just wind,
    or fire, water, air....... those topics would bring alot of variation
    open topics are the best i think, not specific ones like the tooth fairy, shadow hunter etc etc..

    woot

    or we could do a kind of abstract collection, like people post what they draw while listening to their favorite songs or something?...

    "The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work."
    - Emile Zola

    the fault in that is that my favourite song, and most people's, is a bit too short to fit a whle pic into...

    anyway.... and an abstract challenge, is a bit too far away from conceptart... concept art is supposed to appeal to another person isn't it... making it too personal is rather faulty!
