I would say its more about altering an existing and recognizable landmark and adding a dash of 'Transformery' to them.
say...
• St. Basil's Cathedral altered to be a rocket
• The Empire State Building as a robot
• Mt.Fugi as a flower vase
• Footbal Stadium as a bowl of nachos
etc...

but why is it "preferred" to be animated. U cant animate a stadium full of nachos. Maybe the cheese dripping. But come on not all of us can animate.

I decided that, if i have time, i should make my own character/fighter sprite (i regret i didnt join that challenge) So that means, if i start a character wip i probly wont make a pixel for this challenge, but i do want to ask if someone knows any good anim. programs, tutorials and/or someone with some experience on fighter sprites who can help me (i know, it's off topic, sorry for that, if its too off topic ill remove it )

but why is it "preferred" to be animated. U cant animate a stadium full of nachos. Maybe the cheese dripping. But come on not all of us can animate.


I dont agree. You could make some short comic kind of thing. From left to right about 3-4 stages transforming from one to the other. You could also kind of blend two things together, 1 side the stadium, at the other side the nacho thing...

Well considering it's transforming from a building to something else an animation would probably be the best way to show that.


I request Jalonso to make a piece with the awesome building skills from those fighting backgrounds. That would be great.

Nah, jalonso's an iso man at heart; he should make an awesome transforming iso building!

I was going to make a shmup-style boss ship from the Sphinx (shmups: the original building transformers), but meh, too lazy.

My idea is transforming the arch of triumph (the one in Paris) into something. Don`t know into exactly what yet... But maybe somebody can give me a tip? Hopefully I manage the animation-part as I`m ever so rusty, not working much with that kind for years.

haha... thougth about doing something with the Moais (that's the name of those statues) since Easter Island is from Chile... i'll have to find something else to deal.
 
just in case... don't take it tooo "literaly" about transformers. it doesn't say anywhere that you 'must' transform the monument into a robot. it can be anything! be creative

I can't think of anything to transform the Washington Monument into.

Probably one of those big things from star wars, what are they called? The machines with four feet in episode 4...

The Space Needle (before and after). I'll probably animate it, but here's what I have so far.

BTW the shield is the first disk from the top of the needle. Plz excuse the horrific arm.
