    This should be good for me. Im not too great at environs, so some friendly competition should be good practice.

    ...
    Uh how about a character design of the week thing too? Might be a bit much but it would be nice.

    environment of the week would be really good for my practice in backgrounds so sign me up.
    For the rules there could be something like:
    - Do not show any animals or inhabitants of the enviroment unless it is required for the topic
    - Original architecture only
    - the setting of the environment

    Maybe a small description should be added when a certain topic is chosen.
    Example:
    Topic - Mysterious island
    Description - This island, with it's high peaks, is always surrounded by mist. Mystical smoke signs erupt from these peaks.
    Something like that.
    my €2 cents

    possessed: i think the rule you suggest about not showing animals etc, should be more correctly expressed. Something like "the environment, and its elements of design, must be the focus of the illustration. Works with a focus on characters or creatures within the environment will not be accepted". That way if someone is painting a 'gigantic dragon lair' or some such, they can put creatures in.

    Also, on some occasions, figures (or at least the indication thereof) will be integral in establishing a sense of scale for the scene.

    Basically logic rules here - if the environment is poorly designed/boring and the characters are in dramatic poses - not accepted. Focus on the environment design. Criteria for a good environment - - i will try to get some professionals to summarise a list of points for voters to think about.
