Hey, Eman and I are in this one. This will be our first try at a challenge. I really like this concept, it will be very tough. We will start doodling out some ideas tomorrow in class and we should have some up for you to look at tomorrow night. Seems like this will be lots of fun.

Ciao for now

As Mickey said, we will work together on this one. We are both high school students using LW7.5. We live in a rural part of Georgia, so I think we can find a good location. Right now our ideas are still in infancy, but we are leaning towards a traditional "train" with an eerie edge to it for the ships. Expect some images within the next few hours!

Good Luck to Everyone!

Here are some images as promised, they are early sketches just getting down the old-time carnival feel which we are going for:

Very cool guys. You've inspired me with a couple of ideas, although, the tent looks similar to the one I've sketched already.
I like the "You'll be dying for more" line beneath the clown.

Good luck and I can't wait to see more.

Ok, our story is a little more concrete now. We really want to play up the 'deceptive' and 'mysterious' side of this story. In trying to do this, we are planning on having the ships look like old caravan wagons on the outside (much like P.T. Flea's transportation in a Bug's Life). However, when they land, the sides are going to fold down to reveal their true mechanical nature. That is our basic idea of what we want for the ships, and we've decided on most of the items we want in the carnival and how they are going to "unfold." We'll post those images soon!!

marvin:: thanks for the feedback! Good Luck to you too!
