The Beast's Prison: Hidden in a remote mountain range lies a fortress that has, for centuries, guarded to beasts of the old world. The beasts are immortal and are unkillable by known methods, but are far too dangerous and hostile to humankind to have roam the world, free. For centuries generations of guards have lived their lives guarding the beasts from childhood to their deaths.
The Dreamwood: The forest between an ethereal world of the subconscious and the real world. In these woods it is hard to tell which is which.
New Mecca: During the colonization period after interstellar travel was made viable, new religions and cults cropped up all over the galaxy. The mystery and adventure of the final frontier made people easy believers in what anyone with enough charisma would say to them. On the remote colony on planet Horus, travellers stumbled across a massive alien ruin, which a religious leader claimed a sign from the heavens and 'New Mecca' and became a sacred site for their religion. Pilgrims flocked to 'New Mecca' to see this sacred site.

Gringotts Wizarding Bank
Gringotts is the only known bank of the wizarding world and it is operated primarily by goblins. A snowy white building, near the intersection of Knockturn Alley and Diagon Alley, Gringotts towers over all neighbouring shops. Customers pass through a set of bronze doors and then silver ones before entering the lobby. The main floor is paved with marble and has long counters stretching along its length. Within, wizards and witches keep their money and other valuables in vaults that are protected by very complex and strong security measures. The vaults extend for miles under London and are accessible through rough stone passageways and then by means of magic carts that travel speedily along their tracks.[PS Ch.5] Gringotts also offers Muggle-Wizarding currency exchange.[CS Ch.4]
When Harry first visits Gringotts, he is told by Hagrid that one would have to be mad to try to rob Gringotts.[PS Ch.5] Goblins are extremely greedy and will protect their money and valuables at any cost, which makes them ideal guardians for the valuables of the wizarding world. In addition, according to Hagrid, apart from Hogwarts, Gringotts is considered "the safest place in the world for anything you want to keep safe". There are a number of methods to opening the vaults. Most vaults, such as Harry's, use small golden keys. Higher security vaults may have various enchantments upon the doors. For example, the door to Vault 713 needs to be stroked by a certified Gringotts goblin, which causes the locks to retract to the centre of the door. If anyone but a Gringotts goblin touches the door, the person will be sucked into the vault, which is checked for trapped thieves about once every 10 years. Dragons guard the especially high security vaults found in the lowest reaches of the bank.
Gringotts Vault 713 held a small parcel wrapped in paper, inside of which was the Philosopher's Stone. Dumbledore sent Hagrid to retrieve it while he escorted Harry.[PS Ch.5] Later that very same day, Professor Quirrell broke into the vault under orders of Voldemort. Although he was unsuccessful in obtaining the Philosopher's Stone, the break-in shocked the wizarding world because it was practically unheard of for Gringotts to be robbed. The culprit was not caught. In Deathly Hallows, Harry, Ron, and Hermione, aided by a reluctant Griphook, break into the vault of Bellatrix Lestrange where a Horcrux of Voldemort (Hufflepuff's cup) is hidden. However, when they go into Bellatrix's vault, which is stocked with all manners of treasure, they find out that the treasure has had Gemino and Flagrante charms placed on it, which, respectively, cause any item to multiply rapidly and go red-hot whenever it is touched. The trio escape with the Horcrux by freeing a half-blind dragon that was part of the security for the vault, and clambering onto its back. The trio inside the vault and the subsequent escape by dragon are illustrated in the U.K. Edition, the U.S. deluxe edition and on the cover of the Dutch translation of the book.
While Gringotts is largely staffed by goblins, including Griphook and Ragnok, it is known that the bank does employ humans, though not apparently for banking and accounting services. Bill Weasley worked as a curse-breaker for Gringotts in Egypt, retrieving artefacts from ancient Egyptian tombs and pyramids. Fleur Delacour took a part-time job with Gringotts after participating in the Triwizard Tournament, apparently to improve her English skills, and Wizard guards are mentioned in Deathly Hallows during the break in.

paint any environment you want but it has to be in a Baroque style computer painting is acceptable
The City of Brass
I was recently looking for images of a fantasy city-ship, based on an idea in an old book I'd read -- the idea was the ship was the home of a band of sea-gypsies who never settle on land, but build their tiny residences in and on these massive ships that get bigger with each generation.
I was baffled when I couldn't find any good images of some such online. Apparently, that ground's never been heavily trod. Might make for some interesting images! Could see slightly different takes from either a primitive or renaissance model, but my imagination's rusty.
music enspired: Basicly pick between about 5 different youtube tracks, game and movie soundtracks of a variety of topics.
paint whatever you want it just hast to be enspired by the song, This could be a potential
client request so it would be good to do.
some suggested tracks,...
I guess J.p. Targete listens to this soundtrack while he works sometimes
so do I actually
A huge city within an extinct volcano , or inside a huge canyon with buildings along the steep walls, and many cranes, lifts, cables and bridges hanging around it.
On the lower levels you see the mining area with its foundries, mines, excavation sites, transportation belts, containerstations etc.
The next level you see the houses and government buildings.
The level above this the high temple and military structures.
And on the highest level the port, from which they trade the many mined metals and minerals, and an entire beacon system to communicate with the outside level.
- the beauty and the beast (in form of an environment)
- the beginning (of a journey, catastrophe...) - ok its a classic^^
- the biggest celebration (town, country, planet....)
- the habitat (sea, ground, space)
Silent Hill type ghost town

Ok I looked through a lot of the pages but not all of them, there are just too many ideas to read - so I hope I don't post up an already done or posted idea, but here goes.
Starcraft!!: A painting of either a zerg, terran, or protoss colony, most concept art you see of the starcraft universe is depicting some kind of war-front imagery, but how about on their respective home worlds, colonies that aren't currently in combat? How would they look? Possibly interesting..
Alternate Earth!: A painting of any well known place on our planet, but with obvious and subtle changes to it, due to being in a slightly different, alternate universe! Still enough the same that it is recognizable however. For example; a scene of the pyramids and sphinx, but with a city around it instead of deserted, or new york city with the statue of liberty in an entirely different pose lol, something along those lines, any well known scene.
Those are my best ideas. I like the idea of a sound-track based EOW as well, although I think it might lead to a real lack of consistency and make it a little harder to judge, but that isn't that big of a deal.
