Designing Xilon

Suggestions for artists looking for starting points or full scenes to depict.


Character Scenes


Day at the Races

Similar to a horse race, except that the horses have wings (or you might use dragons), and the "racetrack" is a rough water zone of Zenon, winding through a park (note: a Zenon park, which means that the trunks of the trees run straight down into the water).

Expansion

A class in session at one of the learning centers on any of the 5 planets. Definitely should not be traditonal (ie. kids sitting at chairs)...think as unusual a class as possible. High technology, teleportation practice, etc.

The Game

A few friends engaged in some sort of game...could be an alien looking board game, or even something simple like a game similar to Jacks.

Gods of the Hunt

An intimate shot of 2 Xilon hunters celebrating, with a wild animal slain at their feet.

The Hunting Party

A group of 5 hunters in the middle of battling a wild animal, searching for wildlife, or ready to attack, possibly in the Javedan Forest of Risus (ice trees, snow flying, etc.).

Misty Mountain Lake

An isolated mountain range on Terra Firma, a lake surrounded by high cliffs, enveloped by mist. 3 friends sit on the rocks near the water. Maybe one has his hand trailing through the water while watching his friends. The two females are talking as one of them sharpens a hunting knife.

New Dimensions

1-3 Xilon friends Walking through the Mobius Spiral, leaving the Aeradisphere.

The Prodigal Returns

A wanderer who's led a very extravagant life traveling around the universe finally returns home to Zenon. The image should have a somewhat whimsical or nostalgic feel...maybe a view of them looking at their old house from a distance as they approach.

Winter Oasis

Set on Risus, a young Xilon pair in love, but each unsure of what the other thinks.


Spacescapes


Close Encounters

2-3 of the celestial bodies at points in their orbit where they come into close contact with each other, practically passing on top of each other.

Creation Myth

Any images of the main bodies of the Xilon System at different points of their individual formations. For specific background stories that aren't included on the main site, feel free to email and ask and the project director will compose a description of the details.

Eclipse

Any of the planets directly in front of the core of either Geminius or Zeta Five.

End of Days

This can include multiple images of the Aeradisphere at the end of time when it finally collapses into itself and is swallowed up by Daxxus. You might do a full shot of the energy sphere itself, or a view of the galaxy whirlpooling away, or closeups of particular celestial objects (ie. the planets falling apart, Zeta Five exploding). Particular events are also listed in the End of Days story.

Fragments of a Dying Star

The purple/blue Jeborak Sun exploding to ultimately form the Xilon supernova Geminius.

Fusion

A massive nuclear storm moving along the borders of the main orbit system...close enough to look imposing and dangerous, but far enough that it doesn't affect the nearby planets.

The Great Destruction

A cataclysmic event caused a chain reaction within a cluster of celestial bodies, resulting in the explosion of over 500 billion stars and planets near the center of the Aeradisphere. Any images depicting various stages of this epic event.

Ice Storm

A massive ice storm passes through the orbit system. Could be a wide shot or a closeup of how it affects the planets. The storm itself would appear to be a tumult of thick white icy mist and frozen chunks of rock.


Towns, Villages and Buildings
