I would like to draw some pirates walking in the water carrying a treasure but have no time. Focused in light specially.
Hope you like it!

Navarrot - Dead on. You might have it. Suggestion: Redesign the skull's jaw into a portal or maybe an entrance into a secret realm.

"We hiked for hours searching for unseen things, until finally. At the edge of the swamp lye the skull of a mammoth, its massive skull engulfed the swamp around it; it truly has a sight to see."
The prehistoric swamp lands of Skull Island were once the feeding grounds of some of the larges mammals to ever walk the earth. Many travelers enjoy hiking throw the swamp lands in search of such creatures.

Great start to this one everybody!
I'm hoping I have enough time to get this finished. My motion graphics class is devouring my free time! But I'm gonna try my best to crank this one out being that it's my first EOW.
Still need to throw a skull in there , but here's the WIP:

EOW # 66 Final
In Early this time as I am going on Holiday tomorrow.
We landed in a swamp, trekked for days; we could feel the savagery, the utter savagery, had closed in around us, all that mysterious life of the wilderness that stirs in the swamp, in the jungles, in the hearts of wild men.
'And this also,' said Marlow suddenly, 'has been one of the dark places of the earth.'

navarrot : very nice speedy, tight execution.As a suggestion , it is not really necesarry , i will play a little more with the light and the atmosphere, maybe it can help you describe the space better
shardana: It is a very good habit to make a set of little thumbnail composition sketches before you actually start to draw the final lllustration.Now , in this sketch you have some elements : the 2 trees in the extreme left and right of your image, very similar in shilouette, size and they are in the same plane (that does not help you explain the space is like , in a conversation you say the same well understood phrase two times, repetition is good but with variation ) and the skull wich is situated very close to the center of image.I know that there is a general opinion that the symmetry is bad for a composition for a couple a good reasons.I partially agree, i only think that the symmetry is a very powerfull tool but very sharp and so very hard to use without cutting yourself .So in this case you have two options , one is to proceed with the symmety but then you have to compensate the absence of "eye movement on the picture" lacke of dinamism and so on, with a very interesting subject to catch the eye so the composition per overall will not have boring feeling or you can try other composition solutions and decide after you have done this.
HFix:nice sketch , i think the tree closest to the viewer is not helping much your composition , it divides the canvas and stop the eye to "wonder" around.
Gaius: very nice work, i think it will help very much your work to play a little bit with the color variation the atmosphere and the light, it is so nice rendered till now .
P.S:pls excuse my english
