This week we want you to create a control panel that could be used in a film or  game, then upload it to your Rookies profile and tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #ControlPanel.


Brief

This week your brief is to create a control panel, and not the type that is used in Microsoft Window. I'm talking about a machine control panel that is used to control or monitor instruments and machines. The type of control panel that can be found in various facilities: factories, production lines, power plants, ships, aircraft, rockets... basically a panel that needs fancy glowing buttons, slider controls, led screens, keys, and spindle dials. Your control panel can be something huge like a Space Control Centre, or something hand-held that could detonate a bomb, or control a drone. Your project can be 2D or 3D. It can be an original design, or a replica of a real-world control panel. Do you have something in mind? Let's see if you can get it done in the allocated time frame.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
