    IDW #90: Sound of the Stars/Alien Instruments

    Topic: Sound of the Stars/Alien Instruments

    Background: Topic speaks for itself: design and draw up an alien instrument that looks like nothing you've seen before or since. It produces a sound no human that has never heard it can imagine exists. Whether you draw just one instrument or a whole orchesta of them is up to you.

    Description of your concept is required this time though!

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw one or more Alien Instruments!
    2. Add a description to your concept! Entries without it will not be taken to poll!
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday, January 24

    first idea. hoping of enough time to do a piece of this instrument with more details and better lineart, if nothing better appears.
    its about creating soundwaves within magnetic liquid, which is formed by eletromagnetic manipulation. the resonance body is changing with the form of the liquid. learning of this instrument is only possible for guys with 4 face tentacles

    Altered-mind: I don't think it says it has to be tech anywhere...industrial design encompasses a whole lot more than 'tech'.

    This is probably my only contribution to this round unfortunately. Just something that showed up on my sketchbook page as I was pointedly not studying for (4!!!) exams. (Fie upon examinations, FIE! I say ) meh.

    fughi from yuggoth: I would pick up a ruler and do some nice line art. Most of the pieces of your instrument are different lengths, different shapes and at different levels on your page and it looks a tad messy.

    don´t see any thread for the finals so i´m posting it here =)

    Description: the Xayyeho is an ancient instrument used by the Lapsi. It is used since ancient time to call; not other members of the tribe though, but nature. The special sound generated by this instrument seems to affect plants and animals around the musician, in a way that resembles communication. Although it´s not an articulated form of communiation, the Lapsi can stimulate plants to grow faster or slower, cause flowers to move (away or towards the instrument), call animals or make them run away, and many more things that grant them a strong bond with the nature of their planet.
    The instrument is a mask, made with leader, dead animals, bolts, and a plant called Xay. This plant is the main thing behind the instrument, as it is it´s sound that, seems to create this bond with the nature.

    Hi, I'm new here. I'm an architecture student and I'd love to jump into one of these design competitions. I missed this one but I'll try to get into the next one!

    Apologies for being a little late with the finals thread, been a bit busy with stuff lately. Also, seeing as there aren't all that many entries for this round (yet) I'll put up the finals thread and let it run for another day or so.

    Hm are there any more people working on this round or is Pepps going to be winner by default? I'll leave this round open for a bit longer I think, though I'm not sure that will give any better results...

    I'm not entirely sure what caused this latest decrease in entries in IDW. Is it the topics, the time of year, the weather? I'd like to keep this show running for all who enjoy to do it, but if there's no one out there to enter the show I start to wonder what else I should be doing to keep it on the road...
