    hey guys! I haven't had time to paint for the last several rounds, but this one sounds too good to pass up! I will try and get a head start.

    let's see what I can come up with that's a little outside the box, hmmmm....

    Count me in on this one. Here's some initial sketches, having hard time deciding which one to finalize. Any thoughts appreciated.

    hi ^_^

    Island Paradise ? wow that reminds me of a short story I read in a book of collected stories called Unexpected Magic. The jist of the short story is that these kids go camping with their aunt or someone like that, and they go to a place near a beach with 'Danger: No Trespassing' signs posted all over the place, because everywhere else is too crowded, and their aunt is very strongwilled. So they set up camp and while their aunt is in the tent, just after setting it up. The place or they start teleporting and stuff, but there aunt is clueless, and they end up on all different sorts of islands, eventually they recognise that they're on the Circle road island of grass just down there street and ditch the clueless aunt. Well anyways, they get home and their mother is all like "wow, You're back so soon, not suprised"(lolz), and then they start getting calls from all over the world;Swedan, Ireland, Some U.S. Military Base on an island, from people that found their items , lolz. eventually they get a call from their aunt who's having a nice time in Hawaii.
    So my Question is, can it be a magic Island ? I also told that story to hopefully help people free their mind when brainstorming ideas ^_^
    Have fun,and maybe I'll throw some thumbnails in this week. It's been a while since I've had alot of free time for doodling.

    Can I add a naked dude and a unicorn? Does that count for "civilization"?

    dunno naked dudes are extinct and unicorns are pretty primative.... scratch that. reverse it.... and either way I don't think either one would be described as civilised.. does the naked dude leave the toilet seat up? there you go...

    Im afraid my island paradise comes complete with tanned naked cabana boys, coconut oil and icy drinks with pink umbrellas

    Timothee> I'm a huge fan of rocky island spires, and I will probably make them part of my piece, but I think your second comp with the ship sailing is better visually. The foreground elements combined with the silhouettes of the far palms makes for a more interesting composition overall. This being said, I think you could merge these elements into the other piece and have it be successful, as well. Either way, looking good so far. =)

    Paradise Island comps

    Hey folks. This is what I have so far. I'm excited to see lots of cool islands on here soon! I plan to continue working on this, I'm sort of stuck at the moment however. Thoughts and ideas are more than welcome. Thanks~

    Hmm, think I'll squeeze this one in. Nice wips so far folks!
    DaveB: Loving the middle tower in that second wip. Nice colours too.

    Well, I've done some wips. It is a lot for me since I usually plan in my head and go straight to the final idea before drawing anything. I think I will go on the largest one with the secluded mountain pool and waterfalls with breathtaking view of island.

    Okcyde- Thanks for the input, I'm going with the second one, as it feels less cluttered compositionally. I'll post some WIP soon. Nice to see some variety showing up in this thread.

    Zimfin> Your scene is looking great! I can't wait to see what else you do with it. As a teeny tiny crit, I'd watch those close breakers on the beach. Scalewise, they are gigantic. If that's your goal, definitely put some smaller waves starting to break behind them. Also, I could be wrong, but it seems a little strange that the entire shore is breaking at the same time. Generally, I think an uneven shoreline breaks unevenly, as well. That being said, the composition works very well. I think the foreground is looking fantastic. I really like the boat. Nice choice making it bigger. I think this one should definitely go up on your site, once it is done!

    Thanks! I have not finished the water at all yet. I know I need to alter which parts have breaking waves I just got caught up dong the foreground. I intended to do rows of waves coming in behind the largest ones because in my paradise island there would be big waves where I could learn to surf! I was planning on trying to put more subtle colours in to suggest some corral reefs too. When I am finished, if all goes well, I will definitely add this image to my site.

    Zimfin> Right on! I figured you might get around to that stuff. I simply follow the dictum of "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." So hopefully, you won't hesitate to crit mine once I get around to posting!

    I'll be posting some thumbs soon. I'm trying to push myself by doing a cartoony version of this one (I tend to lean toward realism in my concepts), so it's taking a little longer than last time. Thankfully, the stated deadline is a bit longer, too. =)

    DaveB> I like what you've done to push the natural form of the rock spire. It makes me want to explore it! With that in mind, perhaps add in some way to access the top of it? Quick suggestions: ropes/pulleys, spiral stairs, bridges, etc. Make it look like you've been living in your paradise!

    lkjhgfdsa> All three are strong comps. I feel most drawn to the catwalk construct. It is not quite apparent to me how it fits with the paradise theme, but it does seem the most dramatic. Nice work!

    tsujni> I really like the feel you've got going here. Aside from your brush strokes, which I really enjoy, the strong lighting definitely gives off that island vibe. The only crit I can offer is to slightly embellish that distant formation on the left side of the shot to pull the eye upward off the bright foreground path as it approaches the left edge. My instinct wants it to be slightly taller, too. Aside from that, I'm diggin' it!

    As always, everyone please take all of my crit lightly, unless it sparks something positive and/or inspirational in you. As stated, I'm always open to crit of my stuff, so I try to offer that same support to others if I can.

    Cheers!

    Okcyde: I completely agree! The whole point in posting in these forums is to learn from and hopefully help others to become better artists. I will be happy to crit your work as well as any others.

    Well, unless someone points out something needing altered I might call this done. I was bothered by the shadow area from the boat before and I wanted the water as transparent as possible. Still a little unsure about the colour/pattern of the water between the boat and closest plants. Let me know what you guys think.

    I personally think you need to work with separating background from foreground with boat. According to perspective, they're distanced strongly. Maybe adding a fog, softening details with airbrush, or cooling down colours will do. Try to experiment with different ways Also, it could help focusing on boat area, as the whole work blends a bit because of similiar colours.

    Thanks for the feedback. I am not sure I get you completely though. Do you mean that the perspective on the boat looks off or it looks a bit flat?
