Well you mentioned The 7 Towers. What does that mean? I didn't see a description anywhere.

I'm curious about 7 towers too.

If you looking for new ideas, here are few of the top of my head:
- Pixar tribute
- Exploding oil rig (water and fire)
- Storm on the ship (tall ship, ocean open waters)
- Underwater mine explosion...

The key with the 7 towers is that I have to build the core tower..

That will take a week, but I am going on leave next Friday and I dont want to lose the momentum of the forum.

Having said that I LOVE the idea of underwater mines.
I can do a model of one VERY quickly.

I'm very curious of this 7 towers challenge. The tower is essential but what would you have us to do with it?
 
Old 08 August 2012   #6
It works this way,
I model 1 tower...
and the FX artist gets to pick the environment where the tower would be.

Maybe a desert, an ocean, a lava field, a glacier.

The reason is called 7 towers is that in this fictional world there are 7 towers across the planet.
They are the center of Magic for this world.

My vote is for the towers. It gives nice guidelines but offers a various results.
After all, it's about nice looking effect right?

I think the towers one sounds pretty cool

But the underwater mine one would be very cool and maybe more effects driven...

But Roberto if you dont have time then you dont have time....
Maybe the towers could be the one after?

I will probably do that.

A mine is something that I can model in under an hour afer all.

Not quite sure about the FX behind the simple word "tower". Something more specific, maybe?
It can collapse, blow, make some magic, or just stand still with wind blowing. I think it would be better to make the task a bit thiner...

And I agree with Cyberone, if you don't have time to make a model for a tower, and you don't want to skip one challange for a community, then it would be better to make something easier for now, and then get back to towers. Maybe even give less time for this one.

the tower challenge sounds to me like a matte painter work with FXs for the atmosphere.

the mine sounds great!

how about something like that (juste the building part, no tentacles, (or maybe yes!^^)): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X2PfMbkb6c

Ok guys,
I am right now on Holiday in Orlando, I will be back next week.
I am in the process of designing the tower model, so I would love any ideas you guys can throw my way.

Until later,
