Leviathan Vs Leviathan.
Saw Pacific Rim, and it would be awesome to create either giant robot vs giant robot or giant robot vs giant monster. All designs would have to be originals. Can be fun (Waitress vs Jello Monster) or more cannon.
On a similar note, Original Japanese Rainbow Team Giant Monster Fighters. Roll your own team similar to Gatchamen or PowerRangers. Has to be a Team, has to have five members, and to have at least one Darker member like Jason or Wolverine.

I'm up for a cities of the future! The extruded Bomber Art is appealing, mmm.

Anti-Game Of Thrones/Pacific Rim ; Just too much of it floating around at the moment, would be nice for the eyeballs to feast on something new!

Great ideas there. Video Game Mash-Up/Chibi Warriors/Mechanical Animals are my fav.

Doctor Who



This one got a lot of positive feedback on the other topic thread, so it was suggested that I post it here.

Expressive bodies.

The goal would be to produce an in action shot, using poses and weighting to achieve the end.

Example would be a soccer player in the middle of kicking a ball, or a dog jumping up in excitement, a musketeer reloading his gun as fast as possible as an enemy is charging, someone trying to escape from the clutches of a zombie, a child waiting for an icecream, etc.

something that will capture the emotion of the moment, expressed through the pose and facial expression of the character.

The participant could choose an emotion from a list, and create a character and pose to get that emotion across

PS. Hello everyone
