    The topic is interesting... but I wish it was just "hardcore gamer" and not such a specific type of gamer. I can easily see some great designs with a really wiry guy bent over the keyboard, or even something Lain esque with her wire strewn rooms.

    I agree. I would rather see the topic be "hardcore isolated from society type gamer" with no restrictions on age, gender and weight. It's not that a fat 35 year old gamer can't be interesting, but I can't really picture all of us bringing something new and unique to the table with our entries. Maybe I'm just not being creative enough... I donno.

    Great topic and a good challenge. I might have to find some time for this one.

    If your in this industry or want to be, get used to having restrictions. Think of this as a job, would you cry to your boss because something is more challenging then you would like it to be? I have a feeling if you did, you'd soon be filling out the application form for the local McDonalds. Suck it up princess!

    Maybe you're not starting to have fun yet.

    romance has the wurd, guys. nothing will get you a "thanks but no thanks" faster than telling an AD up front that his idea sucks and yours is better. better approach is to nail the crap out the assignment and then put down a few of your own gems and humbly, politely mention that you had other ideas that might be worth considering. OK, maybe a bit overstated but not much. you really gotta work within the brief even when it doesn't appeal much.

    Romance, Masque: I do believe both Bammer and I know this. But we also have this sneaking suspicion that this thread isn't our employer... and that although we do this for practice, we also do this for fun.

    well, if sticking to the brief isn't fun, then you have the choice to skip this round. or not, as you wish. 's all good

    I guess I'll throw in my two cents, romance, masque, well spoken. (Although it pains me to admit it ) While it can't be said for everyone, this is practice not only for talent but for working within contraints, so for those to whom it applies, it helps doubly.

    The trick is to "see some really great designs" with the posted topic. Sometimes that's talent. Apologies if I'm soapboxing, but I just came off of a week where exactly this applied, so...

    We have a topic suggestion thread somewhere right? For the inevitable nay-sayers on any given topic, that thread's for you. Clearly this fun isn't above revisiting familiar themes so get posting there too. Also, if you have a sudden bolt of inspiration because of what sprang to mind from these topics, by all means paint it up and lay it on us in the main forums!

    update, and Im done

    I kind of like the challenge of doing a subject i don't care for. Makes me tackle the problem of making it into a subject I do care for. I usually apply some sort of fantasy element, but thats just me.
