    Eow 104 Two roads



    Eow 10A road not taken


    Brief
    This is an Enivironment about choices
    you can be as figurative or as literal as you like
    or you can interpret it as you will

    TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    for those not familiar withthe Robert Frost poem
    here is the entire text
    http://www.bartleby.com/104/67.html

    Required elements
    2 choices
    one Less traveled


    DUE February 1 2009

    and we're off again!

    NO description required, say what you need to say visually. The Poem is the description
    although you don't have to interpreti literally. you will notice that the "yellow wood" is NOT required

    faerie howe?

    #


    # She mounted on her milk-white steed,
    She's taen True Thomas up behind,
    And aye wheneer her bridle rung,
    The steed flew swifter than the wind.

    # O they rade on, and farther on--
    The steed gaed swifter than the wind--
    Untill they reached a desart wide,
    And living land was left behind.

    # "Light down, light down, now, True Thomas,
    And lean your head upon my knee;
    Abide and rest a little space,
    And I will shew you ferlies three."

    # "O see ye not that narrow road,
    So thick beset with thorns and briers?
    That is the path of righteousness,
    Tho after it but few enquires.

    # "And see not ye that braid braid road,
    That lies across that lily leven?
    That is the path to wickedness,
    Tho some call it the road to heaven.

    # "And see not ye that bonny road,
    That winds about the fernie brae?
    That is the road to fair Elfland,
    Where thou and I this night maun gae.

    # "But, Thomas, ye maun hold your tongue,
    Whatever ye may hear or see,
    For, if you speak word in Elflyn land,
    Ye'll neer get back to your ain countrie."

    "there can be three roads"
    it's about choices

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Looking at previous EOWs, silence is a rather good sign Anyway, I'm going to participate there. At this moment I'm trying to get idea what those two roads would be - in other way than literal meaning, of course.

    Crap, I made mine equally travelled.

    I made a good and evil door.


    I have my thoughts on how to do this, but I wanna see what you guys think.

    here are a couple thumbnails. I think I'll end up with something a little different though.


    kool-ka-lang: I see what you're going for. Let see some atmosphere, i.e. where is the light coming from? From the door themselves?- that could be cool.

    zimfin: I really like this. The atmosphere is great and the tree on the right keeps the composition from sliding off the right side of the image. Good work, keep going.

    Obilex: awesome colors and marks but I'm only seeing one road.

    Halvarado: lookin good. Are you using an outline-of-a-leaf-brush for those leaves in the top? If so, its not bothering me too much right now but I wouldn't overdo it. Try flipping the image to see how it feels compositionally, right now it kind of feels too heavy on the left, though I suppose you just haven't worked the right as much.

    Obilex: I thought that may be the case. If so, it might be nice to see the entrance of the bottom one, the begining of the top path is very prominent.

    ok heres mine!

    Heh lol I just saw me and kool-ka-lang had the same idea in our minds!

    I was thinking rather alot on this and came up with the idea of heaven and hell, which is almost same as your kool-ka-lang, but with good and evil.

    But I think your is way coolerXD!

    Nice work folks!

    UnidColor: I love the sense of motion caught by the falling/flying leaves, very nice! Nice palette you used too.

    This is where I am so far. Thought about putting some birds in the top right corner but when I tried they were really crap. Lol.

    pedantic question

    Hi, this is my first post and hopefully will lead to a first time post of my work here on CA...
    I have one (probably overly long and possibly ridiculous) question about the brief. It does say that one of the two elements that are required is one path less travelled. The poem itself doesn't distinguish either one as being less travelled on face value (they are both worn about the same). A possibile interpretation is that it's the effect that time, and something like regret or nostalgia, has on skewing Frost's future memories of the choice, that would recall one of them (the one taken) as having been less travelled.
    My question is if this is the case, then can we just depict a choice of two paths with one not necessarily being less travelled. This is only in the interests of being true to my own interpretation of the poem of course...if a "road less travelled" is a must, then of course this interpretation is moot.

    Or I could just shut up and bloody do one less travelled... lol

    Ok enough babble, a-drawing I should go...I'm not normally this anal, but I do like the poem a lot and so want to do it justice...

    Decided to change the sky and a few other bits and pieces. Think this is all I have time for though and will call it done, unless someone spots something worth fixing I've missed.

    Nate Shaw:

    Thanks. Yeah I actually took a photo of some leaves and made it a brush, so I am starting to see the same shape a little too much - something I will address. Also I agree. I have a hotkey that flips my canvas around and I keep liking it both ways....but I am actualy more bothered by my tree on the left...I am thinking about pushing it out of screen a little more and creating a hobbity type hole made of gnarled twigs and such...

    The right has not been worked enough but I also don't want it to feel as "heavy and desperate" as the left side. I might use some whispy elements like falling leaves and possibly animals to give a little more life to the right side.

    zimfin: I like the new post - the colors are great.
