    An Orrery is a room that has a model of the solar system in it. It's usually mechanical. It shows the path of the planets as they spin around the sun and can accurately predict alignments based on the previous speed and track of each of the planets.

    I think I good example is the Planet room in the end of the First Tomb Raider Movie. If you play Oblivion and have the DLC of the Orrery then you can also use that as an example.

    A mechanical device illustrating the relative positions and orbits of planets and moons in a solar system.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orrery

    A couple of examples that come to mind:
    The dead settlements in Pitch Black
    Buggenhaggen's planetary room Final Fantasy VII

    first EOW!
    Been trying to practice a little more environment painting lately so I thought I should give EOW a try.
    This is my concept, I'm going for a kind of ritual bonfire scene.

    This sounds like a fun topic. I'm think I'm in.
    The first orrery to come to mind is the one from The Elder Scrolls 4 Oblivion.
    Has anyone here had any success with importing 3D models from programs like Lightwave into photoshop?

    Very nice take on the subject. Reminds me of some kind of shamanistic rite. I also like the colors and composition.

    I decided to go the sci-fi route with this one. Haven't quite figured everything out yet, but here's my start. Good luck everyone!

    nice starts to all.

    janjager.. feels sorta traditional
    jei.. has a military vibe to it
    homereid.. looks ritualistic

    i think im gonna go outside my comfort zone and do something similar to a museum showcase feel

    Duman - As far as I know you can import .3ds and .obj files among others, but only in the extended version.

    JanJager - Thanks man, actually that's exactly what I'm aiming for. Very nice sketch, keep going.

    +oas+ - Go for it

    Red face Orrery Chamber

    Trapiki I like your thumbnail very clear, lets see it bigger!

    Homerid Great start for your first EOW, love the orange blue contrast. And the silhouette fits nicely. Cant wait to see you render it more. I can see lots of fabric hanging on the branches and maybe an animal sacrifice.

    JanJager Nice start man, a few of the elements are a bit confusing but im sure you'll make it come together nicely. cant wait to see more.

    Jeiwo Yeah awesome scifi route! Im glad you jumped in on this, i was going to do it but yours it totally better. Very clear thumbnail.

    Kir Nuyts Love the shineyness of the orb the building architecture is looking great cant wait to see where you place the planets!

    --
    Here's mine. Im trying to build the building around the orrery. Let hope i get this one done.

    Great topic! I hope I can find the time to do this one. Its nicely lined up with the ChoW too
    First thumbnail sketches.
    Dont really like the first one.

    For this one I was thinking, steam punk first of all. And I imagined two characters walking up the stairs, one introducing the other to the machine. Maybe One dominant light source from the left, a spot light, like hes just turned on the lights. Then I could use moon light and monitor light for the rest.
