    Why does it seem like every time I deign to once again rear my ugly head around these parts, the EOW is one of those massively open-ended prompts that I just get lost pondering?

    Am I just that lucky?

    possibly. I try to vary from easy to conceptual... you must just be hittingthe conceptual ones

    Thought I'd try this one out, though my mind's drawing a creative blank on this (this is my first post on the forums as well ).

    I've got some ideas, but I'm not too good at making things from scratch in Photoshop - it's a good exercise though

    EDIT:

    Here's the second version - I'm having a bit of trouble with the shading in the background (being colourblind doesn't help).

    makes me think of the tad williams series Otherland. Exellent cyberspace before the matrix ripped it off...

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    Howie: Love your use of color, those textures you got going from different brushes looks great too...very scifi-ish

    I'm not good at environments, but I really like this. I'm thinking images of fractals and perhaps the fibonacci form. A large space, where buildings, relations, molecular structures interact.

    In a single computer, when you use one program, it builds and builds, memory banks (libraries) and so on. Other programs don't build and stand as lonely stacks, that don't grow at all. Odd forms are created.

    All of cyberspace is about relations. Connections. Hubs where people meet. The computer servers that host Google would be huge star like clusters... the single humans with small laptops are tiny specs. Some race through cyber world like jets. Others use dial up and very old machines.

    Perhaps countries are like trees, or forms of their own.

    Cyber space is the art of communication and the way it is put together in present day. But what is it changing into? Will it become more organic? Can we store more in physical cell form, than in metal chips? When millions of minds become one, and even the dead contribute with stored learning... what have we created? Who will lead, follow...?

    I ramble, but I look forward to seeing the entries. I am also not sure I will be able to create anything, but I will certainly be playing with ideas.

    Good luck everyone. If my ramblings inspire anyone, please run with it.

    Im a little torn between style/setting on this one. Everyone seems to be taking the 'space' element of cyber space quite literally, so i thought i'd join in the fun with a more traditional Sci-fi kinda thing..but make it 'digital' via REZ/tron.

    I realised i was wasting my time and could have just screenshotted a wireframe, so i scrapped it and started on a bit of a more disney-fied 'inside the computer' environment..but while i like the colours, im not sure if its so relevant to 'cyber space' as i'd have liked.

    Combining the two has quite an interesting effect however! I may have to pursue this version further.....

    Looking forwards to submitting my first EOW that isnt painted at thumbnail size, incidentally, though i was tempted to approach this from the pov of pixel art just to be awkward .

    cyberspace is a difficult concept. Consider William Gibson's definition,
    Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts... A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.
    .
    Think TRON and Lawnmowerman, I mean the way TRON handled bits was fucking awesome. I guess the important thing is the abstraction of electrical signals to human meaningful objects. I don't care about IP packets, Ethernet frames, or ATM circuits, I care about images and ideas.

    Now how you represent this abstraction from meaningless electrical signals to meaningful objects, well, good luck!

    Cyberspace is the busiest and largest city ever created. Information is constantly traveling at light speeds through the high ways and roads of the town. The right side of city is focused on gathering the information and transporting it to the receiving side, which is the left.
