    Sounds like it's time to bust out wizards.
    Or maybe various things closely related to the shenanigans of the various acts of wizardry and sorcery.
    Samurai.
    Ninjas.
    Pirates.
    Possibly a Lovecraft-themed one? Not sure if it would be easier to concentrate on the subjects in a certain story, the themes, or the Lovecraftian Horror genre as a whole. I am uncertain if that would conflict too much with the previous Horror or Mystical Creatures themes.
    Comedians.
    Films from the year 2000.
    The magical, apocalyptic events of 2012.
    Music was previously done but I suppose you could still have a theme that concentrates on a specific genre like Rock or Techno.
    Death.
    Not sure what the opposite of Futuristic would be called exactly. Ancient/Olden?
    Western.
    Ocean/Underwater.
    KH-Vids.
    Happiness.

    Buildings. I guess it would sort of drift into the photo manipulation, but using a picture of a building (real world or animated/drawn) and create a sig around it. Sounds like a challenge to me.

    What about something with an Urban touch to it, or maybe like Urban decay or something...

    I just thought of another one, War.

    Question though, with the theme being KHV, how would that work?

    My thoughts were you could do a signature on what KHV means to you or you could interpret the site in your own way. You could do artwork dedicated to a certain member who means a lot, really it's up for interpretation but that was my guess.

    I've got some great old BbS tags I could enter for a Birth by Sleep week! This is a great idea as I don't think we've done game specific weeks before, only series specific, if i'm remembering correctly.

    This is a pretty good idea too. I like this. Avis can be simple yet effectivs, giving more people who may not be good with GIMP or Photoshop a chance to win a SotW.

    Avatars aren't really the same as signatures though. Though IIRC we were considering an Avatar of the Week thing a while ago, so it there's enough interest in that we might be able to set that up as a side thing in the future.

    Not sure if it's on there, but what about a one-stock week? Though it may stretch over the course of two weeks (one week for submitting and voting on a stock, second week to actually make the tag).

    And I'm re-suggesting decade themed weeks, like 70s, 80s, 90s, etc. where the stock used must be relevant to or came from the specific decade.
    Also could do game themes, like Nintendo only, Sega only, etc.

    Just extenting Wolfie's 'one stock' idea, what about a resource pack? Someone makes a pack of brushes, stocks, renders, c4d's etc. And they're the only things the participants can use.

    So far with reading through this thread, I really like (and support? Cx) the ideas of KH-Vids, BBS, and the one-stock thing.
    Especially the one-stock thing. That sounds fun, interesting and challenging!

    I also have a few of my own though c:
    Disney/Disney-Pixar movies
    Tim Burton movie stills
    Fashion
    Clothing Line/Brand
    Theater or Drama
    Harry Potter
    Zombies
    Old Horror Films

    I like these two, because I've seen the disney theme do really well before, and I like Tim Burton movies =)

    Wat about something from the year you were born?

    I hold a handful of ideas of various quality.

    - The Relationship Between Nature and Technology
    - Shakespearean factors - quotes, scenes, etc.
    - Signatures in the general aesthetic style of various time periods of one's choosing
    - A reflection on the culture of the signature artist's home nation
    - The various types of Unversed
    - Perspective

    What's Unversed idea is quite interesting. Maybe we could do Antagonist week?

    Just pick a bad guy, major or minor, from any game/movie/etc.

    Ah, indeed, this general expansion upon the idea as an all-encompassing Antagonist week would be quite interesting. The signatures would serve as lovely representations of what characteristics make the antagonists.

    -Original

    As in, during that week, you can do anything that takes your fancy. A true all out competition where someone can attempt to submit their best work without any restrictions on theme or anything like that.
    Anything original can be done whether it is using something completely random or something well known.
    What do you reckon?
