    Idea!

    How about a Climbing City?! Where, instead of walking around, driving, or flying little ships, the inhabitants (whether human, alien, or creaturish) got around places by climbing to them. This would open up interesting, new, dimensions to the spatial conception of a city. The idea would be that because of geography, security (look up Meteora, Greece! - or various monasteries in the mountains), or the lack of space (pop density), the city began expanding vertically (or even upside-down), and people began climbing from day to day to get to their jobs, school, parks... etc. Think about it! Would the inhabitants need safety equipment or would they just all become bada$$es? Or maybe it is an alien world and the creatures prefer climbing over anything else!!!

    Cheers,
    Brett

    The Venetian Queen's Floating Palace. Inspiration is things like the palace style floating restaurants such as Jumbo in Hong Kong, Roman Nemi Ships and Thai Royal barges.

    I kinda wanted this for IDW but thought it was a bit too EOW.

    I'll put my two cents into the suggestion box :


    - Hidden submarine base under iceberg
    - Svalbard Global Seed Vault rediscoverd
    - When seas become deserts
    - Leaving the Milkyway for the first time

    Mila great ideas!!

    what about
    Cold War Lovecraft,
    as in A Colder War by Charlie Stross
    http://www.infinityplus.co.uk/stories/colderwar.htm

    Im paraphrasing but... blurry high altitude U2 photos of something in a giant concrete sacophagus at the end of a canal in the urals, something that the nazis scraped out of what looked like a giant ruined templed on the floor of the Baltic... mayan step pyaramids made of east german concrete, surrounded by slave labour camps... another pyramid constructed by Saddam deep in the desert... another ruined temple on the floor of Lake Vostok in Antarctica, with alien sunlight and impossibly ancient animals swimming through its eye-bending doorways... shoggoths on trucks paraded through Red Square... and the thing in the lead and gold lined sarcophagus, undead and sleeping till the war turns hot.....

    since I need to get into the enviro groove, I'll start by suggesting some interesting things that have come to mind, any suggestions that have already been used are purley un-intentional...
    -Colony of Space Vessels (people (or aliens) live on a large fleet of ships instead of on a planet or celestial body)
    -Post-Apocalyptic Prison in the Rain (pretty self explanatory)
    -Lava fields (perhaps a battlefield, or a path to take you to some hard to reach destination, or just a large field with lots of molten magma everywhere)
    -The Bottomless Pit (or the room that houses the mythical bottomless pit, perhaps it is for sacrificial purposes, or a test of nerves, or just a large garbage chute)
    -The Fall of Isengard or The Treasure of Lonely Mountain (or some kind of tolkein inspired enviro)

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Some ideas that I had today..

    + Alien Cathedral: What if you visit an alien civilization and your first stop is their place of worship, what would their church look like? Their alien religion would inspire the architecture, mood, etc..

    + Spooky Graveyard for Villains: a place where they bury very, very bad people.

    + Nightmarish Toy Factory: Halloween is coming up

    I agree with OchreHand's comment about Halloween, so why not a halloween themed round this time !

    - Sleepy Hollow, 2 minutes before midnight.
    - A gateway between two worlds. ( Reference to the movie. you got me )

    Or something else;


    - The last church of earth

    Hmm, I didn't really have any one thing in mind. I think the ambiguity of it is what makes it a fun prompt. Maybe some version of heaven or an all-white city, or a shiny portal (though I guess that'd be "portal to the light?"), or a view of a majestic sky with a fiercely glowing sun.. or a building/tree just standing in sunlight, for that matter, contrasted by the ominous shadows all around them.
    sorry if a prompt like this has already been done. I didn't check the archives. >>"

    When i was a kid i read a story about a princess lost in a forest. She found a little lake, with flowers and light. She was so scared she didn't dare going back into the forest, so she sat down by the water. She sat unmoving so long she became a flower herself.

    I have a couple:

    - The hidden upside down city.
    - The carnivorous island. This one's from the book, "Life of Pi." The island was made of a huge mass of vines that produced freshwater, and killed the fish that landed it. During the night, too, the vines produced acid and you couldn't sleep on it. The main character Pi later found a huge tree that produced fruit, and in the fruit he found body parts, like teeth and hair. You don't have to do this specific carnivorous island, per say, but a carnivorous island is still a cool concept.

    'Suicide City'--the most depressing place in the known universe. Can be a windswept wasteland or Douglas Adams's darkly comic Han Dold City or a mountain carved into a weeping woman, or perhaps George R. R. Martin's Kryne Lamiya . . .

    You've al heard about Space Marines undoubtly, and heared so much about their chapter fortresses, but we haven't seen any actual footage of pictures of it. So, how do you think a fortress monastery of the space marines looks like?

    -Super-max prison on a frozen siberian planet.

    -An abandoned planet(kind of an arkham city kinda deal) where the convicted and mentally ill are sent to fend for themselves in a madman's utopia.

    -The world as it would be if Genghis Khan's empire still existed today.

    -The world if Rome never fell.

    -A Viking Planet.

    -The world as it would be now if Russia had fallen to Hitler in WWII.

    Well, this is an idea suggestion, but not for a topic. I just tried my first ever few enviro's and im somewhat discouraged by the results. I looked for tutorials and whatever on the net. I found a few but for practise all they can do is suggest landscapes from ref and speedpaints. I wqnt to try and go ahead and practice those, but what i really miss is a place to post and discuss these with others. So, what I would really like is a feedback weekly activity thing, a bit like spartan camp, but with enviro's.
    any chance of getting that?

    >>SKETCHBOOK. you'll visit me. I'll visit you, we'll have a tea party. with arts and shit. it'll be dreamy. stop by.

    I can also host something like that but wouldn't really know where to start. Is there someone in the EOW ranks who'd like to volunteer for something like this? Someone more involved in the industry who knows what areas need the most practice, like the mentor program on CA.org but more targetted towards the environmental aspect of art. I haven't been in that section much on this site but I'll check it out and get back to you through PM. As of right now, I'm sticking to just the EOW activity but I'd be more than happy to advertise it every time a new topic goes up if you guys wanted to start your own spartan camps for improving your enviros.

    @incinerated, thanks for the link. the class is ended, but there do seem to be some other people hosting stuff. I could try and get a place there. im also getting an amazing lot of help in the eow thread itself, which is wonderfull.

    @Vulgar- well, if you'd host something like that I'd love to join. but I bet its a lot of work. anyway, it's an idea. me, I'm getting a lot out of this activity already!

    oh, and I second Celestial titty bar!
