Hammerspace! That dimension where cartoon and comic strip/book characters pull ludicrously sized hammers from, among other things. Quite possibly where Gleek kept the bucket for carrying Zan.

Hyperbolic Paraboloid. Use one or more in a creative way. WTH is a Hyperbolic Paraboloid? How do I make one in trueSpace?

A scene about a group of superheroes who's powers are related to film movie cameras and movie making. They are "The Super Eight".

Some idea (in a context):
Draw your wife (human relationships)
a machine to make cubic bubbles (scientific)
how to make a city without streets? (Ingenuity)
a caveman who finds a iPad (intellectual)
show the most useless application for a smartphone (comic).
create a caricature of your head and post a real portrait next to the 3d caricature. (can be realistic, serious, funny or disturbing as my avatar :mrgreen: )

They discussed it somewhere in other topic, and I must say it's a good idea.

A large sign for a motel or other business. These were popular in the 50's through 70's. They usually had lights or neon. This could be a chance or creative lighting too.

An old movie theater marquee with neon etc.

How about some sort of cloth, blanket or some such, using the cloth simluator on WS. Have it drapping over a table or chair or what ever.

Any scene that tells a story but you don't reveal what the story is. Then you get one other forum member to write a paragraph or so about what he thinks the story is (without him knowing what your story is). The image and the guest writer's paragraph are the entry. Only after the contest winner is chosen everyone reveals the real stories and we have fun comparing the real to the guest writer's and to our own.

Picture vandalism. Like drawing horns or mustaches on pictures. The competitor models things to add to a photo or drawing of a person/animal/creature. The competitor does not have to make the photo or drawing.

Things related to a sport. Football helmet, skis, baseball glove.

Things related to a profession or job. Briefcase, tools, police equipment.

Las Vegas.
