    Design Lab Episode 13 - Urban Waterfall [youtube activity]

    Hello everyone. This is going to be the submission thread for yet another design activity.

    This one is environment related, and the topic is "Urban Waterfall". You can make it as literal or abstract as you want.

    Here is the primer video: http://youtu.be/XLtDhfjRX7U

    You're free to use any media or methods, the key is only that you're submitting unique design ideas at a basic thumbnail level of polish.

    Deadline is March 15.

    i like the perspective! to avoid the spaghettis you could straighten the lines until they reach the ground (where the splash thing happens). but maybe its a waterfall of astral energy or something^^. i also see something like a face of a ghost or an elemental in the water..

    Would you look at that, a not so dystopic sci fi setting! In this utopian sci fi metropolis everything is powered by water.

    Water wheels fuel the slums that are located at the outside wall of the giant structure. (Thought of florences ponte veccio with the houses hanging on the outer sides of the bridge, but way bigger )

    edit: 3.8.2013: tried the same concept again, i think i like the first one better but i thought it wouldnt hurt to upload anyway. Hopefully

    edit:3.9: softened contrast of the cars on the right because they were distracting from the falls and added sig on second picture, now i have this ugly attached images box below my post with the original ones and i cant make it go away grr

    wow, good job to everyone who posted so far and good luck. Just checking if fantasy based urban areas are in? or does it have to be modern/ sci fi?

    I hope they're still passable as thumbnails. The bottom left one is inspired by Crysis. The top right one needs some noodly sewage-stuff added to it.
    Any and all critiques are highly appreciated

    I went pretty sci-fi with all of these but I tried to have some variety regardless.

    great designs man. on my first entrance for the design labs, i rendered about as much as you have- but i found that sinix kinda wants the most rough design possible- awesome layout though.

    Gigantic (really really gigantic) waterfalls in a sweltering desert city. I like to think that the mist generated at the bottom keeps the citizens constantly refreshed and sane in the heat of the sun.

    It's quite blurry. Meh. Well there's probably lots of condensation on the camera lens. Yes, that's my excuse....
