Eow 111 the night of the celebration of the cherry blossom moon
"On and evening like this every tree has a moon in it all of its own for itself- if you climb up a thousand trees this evening you can pick a thousand moons" the old man murmured, " you remind me tonight of a secret swimming deep with in me."

Wonderful topic. Don't think I have time to finish anything, but I sketched up an idea. It reminded of me of a dream I once had.
April 21st, 2009, 02:10 AM
First sketch. Probably won't go with it but first idea in my head onto digital paper. More to come later.

might wanna look reference the tree form of a cherry tree. Thye are rather distinctive.
April 22nd, 2009, 04:16 PM
I am assuming this comment is geared towards everyone as none of the images so far show anything "exactly" like a cherry blossom tree.
i didn't want to do a "perfect" look alike cherry blossom tree.
April 22nd, 2009, 05:27 PM
What a wonderful topic!
Just roughing out an idea, probably won't get time to finish
April 22nd, 2009, 08:09 PM
Time for bed I think. Here's what I've go so far. Crit away!
April 23rd, 2009, 12:16 AM
Just bought a tablet, please pardon my learning curve while I get the hang of this...
April 23rd, 2009, 02:25 AM
hi all, thought i can do something for this topic, here's what ive got so far..
April 23rd, 2009, 04:48 AM
........ yay for pixelated spray on reduction! :)

Tsujni- You've managed to capture a real dream like quality in yours that really suits the brief, very beautiful.
Dorobo- Good start buddy, Loads of potential.
Aolean- I like the colour pallete, might want to tweek the composition a little just so it reads better, maybe add two more layers forground and middleground to help lead the eye around the painting. Of course it's early days yet and if this is what you intended, I'll keep my mouth shut and let you work! :P
Halvarado- I like the First and third wips, The stlye in the second and the subject matter in the first, just watch your vanishing points.
DavDav- Giant trees with ghostly faces, did you eat lots of cheese before going to bed! :D
Mine so far, I might have taken the 'Moon in every tree' bit a bit to literally!
EDIT: Aolean- just had a look at the landscapes on your website......you clearly know what your doing, i'll be shutting up now!
April 23rd, 2009, 02:39 PM
actually what I mean was that they have to be CHERRY trees.... by some stretch of the imagination. unless you can some how justify cherry blossoms NOT on cherry trees.. because actually "Trees" are not specified. only cherry blossoms. there's a box here.... anyone care to think outside it?
maybe theres a night when the patterns on the moon look like cherry blossoms
maybe theres a celebration on the moon of the dream of extinct cherry blossoms .
I see a lot of moons and cherry blossoms here
but where is the celebration?
April 24th, 2009, 09:11 AM
i guess it comes in the interpretation of celebration, and who or what is celebrating, . is it a literal meaning and humans are celebrating? or just simply the cherry blossom itself fluttering in the breeze of a wind that looks like some kind of celebration?
but otherwise, on reading the brief again and again, i think i see what your getting at chaos, and i suppose when you get away from the word tree, and just focus on the words cherry blossom and celebration, it becomes a very open brief. but then again it could be far far deeper in meaning, lol :) this could be interesting

So, I've been a long time lurker of Concept Art and I'm finally deciding to post something. I'm a traditional artist trying to work on my digital skill sooo that's what I'm using this exercise for. I'm also inexperienced with environments. So anyways, sorry for the speech, here's my W.I.P for this. I'm sure I took the concept too literally.
And man photobucket really butchered the colors in this.
April 25th, 2009, 12:03 PM
oh well.. some more progress
April 25th, 2009, 06:55 PM
um...fergot the celebration here, so um...maybe I'll redo it again.
April 26th, 2009, 01:43 AM
Im Working on It :3 I hope finish it tomorrow
April 27th, 2009, 03:35 AM
I will try finish it in the next hours :3
April 27th, 2009, 07:39 AM
First thumb will post final later tonight.
Recently been looking at urban enviroments, tried to apply to this eow.
April 27th, 2009, 08:06 AM
This is the final one (I think we post them here?). Experimenting with several types of transparent layers, would like to loosen it up a bit more in the next one :)

Sorry it took me so long to post mine, I finally figured out how I wanted to do it today and I raced through. I hope they accept my submission, I know its late :\

For those wondering when the poll is going up and whether Chaos is still alive and/or around: she's still alive though just a little busy with life and all, so she'll be back shortly to take care of EOW :)
Just figured I would let people know in case you were getting worried.
May 9th, 2009, 12:51 AM
