It's hard and takes a lot of time to come up with new GOOD topics for TMC without recycling old ones.

Because of that I thought this thread could serve the winners of TMC with some ideas for topics.

So please post your suggestion for TMC-topic here and please keep the chit-chat on-topic. If you have more specific ideas or restrictions about the topic please include it. The topics posted will be free for any winner to use as they please.

Example:

Topic: Ancient civilizations
Restictions: None
The civilization can still exist but I don't want the modern version of that civilization. Examples: Maya, Inca, Aztek, Egypt. Vikings and mythological ones as Atlantis also qualifies.
rikard_sweden
I have a perfect one:

Topic: harvesting machines
Restriction: none
Manufactors: all you can find

I don´t know what other think of this, but I havn´t seen any themes with this topic tongue.gif
Patrick_Lippe
Topic: Abstract
Restrictions: none
adonisdemon
Topic: Blue
Restrictions None

Topic: Ancient civilizations


that was on my list this week thumbsup.gif

I also had the following ideas:

Topic: Charity
Restrictions: Must be a recognised charity

Topic: Whose theme is it anyway
create a theme in the style of another themer.
Restrictions: the themer must be or have been regular in the TMC.

not sure how people would have taken the last one, which is why I didn't use it. I guess this thread would be the best way to gauge raction huh!

Also, the Marvel topic was probably amongst the most popular, so I guess that's the sort of theme we all enjoy doing.

Just thought of one..

Whatever is nostalgic to you, theme it!
jefdizon
Good one doc! at least this way, we can collect theme ideas into one pool and generate a list of possible theme suggestions for future challenges in case the winner is unable to selet a theme.

here's some of mine..

1. Architecture (modern or ancient)
2. Celtic
3. Heiroglyphs
4. Colors
5. Wildlife or Endangered Species
6. World Issues (like poverty, war, etc...)

happy.gif..
vinnieza
Champians/Heros?
Vlammetje
Just thinking out loud here.... feel free to ignore anything you don't like wink.gif

1. rainforest

2. create a logo for anything at all or even an imaginary service/product and theme it

3. 'fusion' theming... incorporate two different ideas or styles into one theme
Restrictions: we're talking about style and not the images used, ie a picture of Clinton and Bush in oe theme would not qualify, but black and white and colour used would qualify

4. shapes
Make a theme using all round forms, or all rectanglualr forms, or triangles for example. Imagery allowed, but your shape must be persistent thoughout your theme.

5. leather
Restriction: leather on people is allowed, no nudity or erotic content tongue.gif

6. Portraits
Restriction: may be based on a photograph but must be worked on, it may not be 'just' the photograph as you found it. Be creative. May be portraits of yourself, your family or friends, your pet or somebody famous if you like, but must be a portrait of a living creature, not a portrait of an anime character or cartoon hero or ET for example.

Evrae
What about "Charity Themes" to raise awareness! Most of us have been infected by the wristbands so a theme will be just as impresionable. And what about trying to offer your theme to said Charity in a way of helping them to raise funds? Obviously would then be a multi format idea for those who have no problems making SE/NOKIA/MOTO/WINDOWS skins?
redenjaja
all about linux
Evrae
Too many Windows/Linux/Mac themes about already
CrystalEYE
I like the "wrong phone"-idea!

What about "pixel style"?
Restrictions: No effects and gradiations allowed, just pen and brush.

Hard work, I know, but could be interesting.

@ Arthur will, nice ida that mate, i was thinking the exact same topic..
@ Anyone, what are Vector graphics??
mobiletrax
Correct me if I am wrong. But I think there are two types of graphics, bitmap which are the common ones and then there are vector graphics. If you stretch vector graphics the would not pixelize even at larger sizes, assuming that they are still in vector state. Vector graphics can be created using Corel draw or Adobe Illustrator.

I am just guessing, not trying to be all knowing. haha.gif

hope i'm right. tongue.gif better ask jef after all its his specialty.

I got a few...

1.) Fractal art - No Restrictions

2.) Robotics - dunno if this was done b4 (no res.)

3.) The Ten Commandments - Choose 1 to theme.

4.) The Color of... - Choose a specific color and theme objects that are that color. For example, if the topic is green, you could theme money, frogs, a green lamborghini, etc.

We did this at symbian themes,which was fine because all the themes were made for the same phone. smile.gif

I think you would be surprised.....its amazing how many kb's you can lose when reducing the color scale to the phones maximum,the theme i made for that contest was pretty grafical and was only 22kb's as a .sis file! (of course back then the phones only had a handful of colors) haha.gif

@ Azumoru - I'm a Phayzed Butterfly fan too!

Here's another idea:

Cultures of the World - no restrict.

And another 1:

3lements - Fire, water, earth, etc. Choose 1
Azumoru
cwalker you still havnt showed me what spoofing is?

Cultures of the World and 3elements are great i think, but you should make it all elements, for the element it would have to be wind i think
VanjaT630
My ideas:

- free time (fishing, playing, garage sale?)
- music (instruments, singers)
- airplanes (no restrictions)

im new to this website so can anyone tel me if i can request some1 in this site to make me a theme for my 6600 or suggest a website that allows me to make my own theme for free, coz i have a photo of my crush and i wanted to make it into a theme for my nokia 6600.
adonisdemon
request can be posted in the theme requests forum.
check guidelines befoore posting.
CrystalEYE
Dont know if it was already mentioned before, but "Pixelstyle" would be hard, but interesting.

Means you are not allowed to use ANY tool but the Pen, sou you need to build the whole theme pixel for pixel.

(dont know if you can do such a theme in a weeks time, will try someday)
