    here is fine
    the thread isn't closed
    just the entrys

    I want to know why Mishkin didn't post final. his/her thumbnails were awesome.

    I voted for Relic , becasue his/her image is just elegant.

    ashton -- um its not really very emrald cityish not being green or really reading as a city. you really need to establish an under lieing structure that everything fits into for your environment to read as a cohesive scene

    UnidColor this is a beautiful rendition and would have been my second choice. Its a bi tindustrial for OZ though as oz is a utopia without grit

    Lege1 this is a lovely image, it is a bit reminescent of the approach in the movie but my main suggestion has to do with value adn contrast its all pretty diffuse . lenzflair??

    zimfin-- its a long way to the city in this ... which is the topic, and the textures seem to be taking over.. I would have like to see more focus on the city

    csears nicely done-- the art nouveau quality of the ornementation is a nice take on it.

    Angel Inthuek-- this is a good effort but looks unfinished
    and a bit like you didn't really think it through before you started. the city structure itself is rather nice but it seem sto be caged in the random sketchy liines that cover it.

    Revenebo -- there is a sterile architectural rawing quality that in this instance is really working for you. I can't believe how far you have come since you first started posting to EOW\

    lkjhgfdsa- OUCH!!!!! too green
    un relieved, un remitting and then green bordered to boot. hard to actually look at it because the entire color range is so super saturated. you could have used some shadows (maybe even red ones) to help define your shapes. at the very least some less saturated areea and some more value scale.

    Relic- as I said this is elegant, there are a coupe things I might suggest to tighten up middle ground BG contrastespecially in the area of th eoverhang.
    but really , its a lovely piece

    Artiphats hehe you alwasy show us some un usual directions. Sometimes they work better than others. THis doesnt quite read as a city. I keep seeing it as the roots of a grassy meadow seen in miniature LIke Honey I shrunk tDorothy.

    Darknight you need some clarity hard liines details to bring forward your focus. this is all a little muddy
    It would make a lovely under painting to punch on to it some contrast and crisp edges

    respectfully submitted

    chaos I don't know if "sterile" and "rawing" are good things but thank you!! EoW has been a great motivation for me to draw and to make exercise.
    I'm sorry I wasn't able to complete my entry properly. I'm not satisfied at all and I think I'll repaint it from scratch...

    This topic was quite difficult IMO both for the scale (a city) and for the characterizing element (emerald).

    I'll split my comments in two, the concept side and the art side (i.e. content and form, and how much the image sitcks to the brief).

    Relic Content: it's a fine depiction of a city, with its architectural, "historical" and landscape context (and it also looks like Hogwarts! )
    Form: Some minor issues with depth and colors.

    Unidcolor Content: you faced what everyone else shunned: representing the city at street level, with people and many details.
    Form: I have some doubts about the yellow/green haze, I don't know if it's enough to make clear that everything is emerald, at this scale some close-up of the material could help. Anyway... it rocks.

    darknight Lege1 Form: a little too blurry maybe but scale and atmospheric perspective are quite clear.

    lkjhgfdsa the most intersting abstract approach here. Content: could be hard to interpret it as a city.
    Form: the green is a little too bright 8).

    artiphats Content: not so abstract but still difficult to see a city in it. Form: I like the glassy and glossy emerald effect!

    zimfin Content: as chaosrocks said, a bit more focus on the city, right now we're in a sub-urban park (a nice one...).
    Form: I like the emerald effect in the foreground and I think it makes clear where the green color is coming from. There's no middleground though and there are some perspective issues.

    ashton I suggest to check out Levente Peterffy's technique (SamsonReaper here on CA) for the transition from abstract to... not abstract. The point of view is interesting. The image just needs a little bit of patient work to better define shapes and add details.

    Angel Intheuk Form: values and saturation don't help to perceive the depth.

    csears Nice and has some retro Disney-esque look (in a good way). I see it as something very graphic, something you could make a poster with, so I can't make comments on colors, composition and similar. Just a small note on content: some architectural detail could help understand if that's a gate or the whole city.

    And forgive my mistakes with English.
