    Invitation to IDW!

    Hi everyone! IDW (aka Industrial Design of the Week) has been going through some rough times lately- the most recent round had no finals and therefore no poll.

    I would therefore like to invite everyone to take a look at the Winners thread and see if this is a weekly you'd like to try your hand at! Everyone is welcome.

    Some recent rounds have included:

    The Mechanized Gardener
    Arctic Rally Vehicle
    Underwater Telecom Platform
    Stone Age Catapault
    Witch Melter
    ... and many more!

    The Winner's Thread
    The Current Round - IDW # 146 : Re-Design No. 1 - Land to Air


    Cheers!

    I think the weekly challenges should be posted up top. Some times I forget their existence. I've been too busy lately to participate in challenges. But I'm still interested.

    Or perhaps mix up the catagories a bit to try something new. I'd love to try my hand at something like UI of the week.

    I actually have all of the weeklies forums watched. So I've been seeing IDW have weak participation for a while now, which I think is sad. I just haven't had the time to get in and get finishes completed.

    I think maybe there should be some more trendy topics that will get more people's attention like a mecha design or airship or power armor or something.

    A great idea would be to try to collaborate with Chow or Cow again. Maybe do that on a regular basis to keep interest up. I think people would definitely be more interested if they could make two interrelated images or one image that involves both Industrial Design along with a wicked creature or character.

    Thank you for all of your suggestions! Its great to get feedback.

    AmberAlexander: That is definitely something I think I'll be looking into.

    NickTrip: There's been a discussion on th relative attractiveness of IDW vs ChOW/EOW. The argument ended up being- when you do a ChOW or an EOW you are free to design not only the character, but all of their accoutrememts already, or the environment and everything that goes into it, therefore making IDW a bit redundant. I'll look into it however!

    That makes a lot of sense. I've noticed in my own efforts background and secondary story tend to get down played when I'm doing an IDW... i dunno.
