View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 613 POPULAR SCIENCE:"Flying Cruiseships!" (TEMPLATES INCLUDED)

"Inflatable Space Hotels" (this is way real tech)

One of my favorite magazines is Popular Science.
I love how their positive spin for their visions of the future.

So for a few days I want to experiment doing magazine covers.
The idea is that you have been commisioned to do a cover for one of their articles.

Here is your research. The fying shipl you draw has to be based on thier idea, but you can get very creative in terms of the logos , and outside markings. After all, this is a Luxury Ship.

Flying Cruiseships!"
Popular Science Article (

Keep in mind, these ships will be used from everything from travel to shipping.

>>BIG<< ( M)
>>Medium<< ( M)
>>SMALL<<< (

You can change the layer for the article title and the wording for it, but the cover concept cannot change.
The templates are in psd format. If anyone needs it converted, please ask.

Here are the general rules...

We will try to post one of these topics once a day for your enjoyment.

These are the rules:
* Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
* RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
* NO PAINTOVERS, unless specifically requested. Inspiration can be taken from photos, but not direct copies.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
* Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
* The topics will be picked at random from the list on this thread
(The author will be given credit). So guys keep them coming.
*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!
*ANOTHER thread to quantify and track WHO has participated the most on these threads.

Good luck
