    IDM - #001: Think Tank

    IDM - #001: Think Tank


    Project #001

    Topic:
    Our first topic will be to design a "Think Tank", a common term for modern research organizations.
    But that's neither here or there. Our Think Tank is going to be a weapon of the future, and here our your Guide lines:
    • The tank must use tracks for movement
    • The tank harnesses(uses) brain power as it's main source of "ammo".
    • The tank must have a brain somewhere to draw power from.


    Deadline:
    April 29th.


    - for any questions or help go here:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=37512

    Note: The winner of this project will be put in the IWD Intro for the coming projects.

    Post your Designs for this month, and have fun!

    i am curious as to the size of the tank, like a 2 or 3 man crew tank, such as the abrams, or can it be half a town colossal? size doesnt matter until your at the other end of the barrel.
    No. No. Uh uh. No way. Ain't happening.

    alright, gimme a sec.

    the size is up to you, if you think a good design would work if it was colossal, so be it. If you think it needs to be toy-sized, so be it. If the size of your design is realitive to the context of the design, be sure to show scale..

    This thread here is actually the 1st round of the activity, that means you should post your THINK TANK entries over here...you can comment on the works anyway, but don't overcrowd the thread with "i'm so in!", "This is cool" or "Let's do it" posts...

    i dont know, but i hope some of us make some art better than the images of the "think tanks" in that game- besides, its a design competition, not a game idea, at least to my knowledge

    alright, gimme a sec.

    looking good, but i have some thoughts:

    - the gun/barrel seems to be heavy stuff and is completely in front, so your tank is gunna tilt over
    - give the front of the barrel some colour instead of just black
    - your perspective seems off on some places:
    ° the track closest to screen looks like it's going more towards the screen then the rest of the tank
    ° the hole above the base of the barrel (air-supply?). the metal plate furthest away from screen is thicker then the part closest to screen
    - also remember that this entry has to fit (approximately) in that box that says "your artwork here" from the first post yours is quite long (it's about twice as long as preferred size)

    PS: i think this thread is for entries only, you have to post your WIP's in the other thread. the link is a couple posts up.
