    Scorching Summer in the CPU -- Evermotion Challenge 2014

    Hi all,

    I lived in Singapore. It is a tropical country and the only weather it has is hot, hotter, hottest. For a long time I have always relate it as Summer, till someone told me that it is infact much warmer in certain periods. Since then my perception of Summer is very warm and many would prefer to stay indoor with the air-conditioning turn on.

    While we had a choice, I thought about the CPU which runs 24-7 with poor maintanence, it must have been unbearably hot within.
    Thus an idea stroke and I decided to portrait Summer in the heart of the CPU, while having a glance of comparison to the summer in the real city.

    Currently I have selected some colours and temperature of summer to implement within the 'CPU-CITY' to establish some familiarity so as not to detach too far away from reality.

    The image will be framed within the casing, with a low angle view looking up. Random computer parts would be given an additional role. Such as the Power source would be the Sun, and the stacks of Hard discs and CD-ROMS would be residential high rise.


    Stay tuned, Have fun, and Good luck to everyone!

    This is the power supply and it is the main heat source to the 'summer' in the CPU-CITY

    Hi all,

    For the moment I was thinking the Horizontal Ram could be a representation of posters, banner, adverts.
    Also designed alittle to the casing at the top to have the clouds effect.

    Hi All,

    I have added in a few more elements (Graphics Card & Liquid Cooler) to have an overview of the feel in the CPU.

    Hi All,


    Added some additional things like the liquid cooler exhaust fan and the mother board processor slot. had a few capacitator which I thought of illustrating them as multi purpose regenerating pods for the mechanism within. The main processor would be the headquarter of the cpu which alerts the system that the power supply has been over heated.

    also added a window to give the relation of the space and size of the CPU in relationship to the 'real city summer' outside. Would include signboards and redesign the exterior building for a more vibrant, summer, city look.

    Hi All,


    Just completed the rough layout I would like to composite for my scene. from here on I would be polishing on each area to strengthen the
    idea of a 'CPU city'. It would be a blend between mechanical parts and some real life elements.

    Hi All,

    I have reworked on the lighting and and improving on the structures and elements. modelled some vibrant buildings outdoor with a large billboard welcoming summer.. to show a comparison of the summer outside, and the summer in the CPU.

    One of the best ideas! I can't wait the final render!
