    EOW 110 the Bad side of the city

    EOW 110 the Bad side of the city

    Eow 110 the Bad side of the city


    Brief

    Every City has those neighborhoods into which you really don't want to go. I want to see these. I am intentionally not specifying a tie period or a location. It could be the back streets of cheapside in victorian london, the Subura in Imperial Rome. The uncomfortable part of of any modern city... the abandoned neglected part of a future city....

    *splurge* Hopefully this will turn out to be the bad side of some kind of city.

    Working on this one myself. I have a few ideas for it. Hopefully, I'll come up with something. I'd really like to be more involved around here.

    h2rra - ooh kick ass. Yeah, your thumb#2 has a really nice grimey vibe though #1 could also totally be made to work.

    Yeah, I haven't got the colours right yet. Man, I'm itching to carry on with it now. Grr... must wait a few hours.

    NateShaw - oo, that looks war torn like a bad part of the world, let alone the city.

    Ashton - looks like you're going for a kind of derelict under the bridge dockside kinda place. Looking forward to seeing where it goes next.

    halvarado/thescala/darkwolf29a go on then!

    NateShaw, not only is that a great start, but it just introduced me to Alchemy. Wow, this program is AWESOME, thank you! I've been trying to force myself to be looser, and this program is a lot like how I usually doodle (draw random marks in an area and find something in the chaos) so I think once I figure out a method in this madness it'll be a regular part of my concept routine. =)

    --Update--
    Here's my first alchemy sketch with a purpose. This was done after messing around/experimenting with the program for probly an hour.

    EOW 110 the Bad side of the city


    ---Update---
    And a midnight post before I go to bed. I'm so slow!
    Not very experienced in environments either, so heres hoping I can finish my first EOW!

    hideyoshi ...wow. O_O Can I ask how long you think you worked on that? And is there any chance you might be able to send me a link to your WIP-progress? I always love your pieces and I'm curious how they come together. Either way, that's really awesome, the cat seems to contrast just a tad too much with it's surroundings, perhaps this was intentional though, since the cat seems to pull together the sense of foreboding.

    Well, EOW is quite a different experience than CHOW haha, in CHOW theres a new WIP every 3 seconds, while EOW seems slightly more solitary. But being new as I am to the Environment scene (pun not intended), I was hoping for some crits and feedback.

    I'm taking some advice I read on CA recently, I'm really making myself take my time to try and make a really solid foundation, maybe I'll end up just working it BnW all the way through. Doing a lot of experimenting and a lot of reading, really trying to learn a lot through this process.


    next WIP:

    Here's something in-progress... Used some background photos that are just sort of temporary, and a bunch of textures for the graffiti and concrete.

    Looks like everyone was on the same page this time; lots of perspectival approaches.

    Yours is rockin' Hideyoshi!

    hideyoshi, mishkin: neat stuff.

    wish i had more time for this, hope it's not too simple/sketchy/rough. I like it that way though. Final:

    Djinn: it took around 3.5 hours. Sorry, I didn't save any steps for this one.
    It was basically all painted and blocked in without doing any line drawing (thats usually how I work) using a few textures also.

    mishkin looking good!

    Mark: that looks awesome.

    Hoping I can get in on this round. It's slow at work this week, so I might be able to finish this time...

    Hideyoshi: Sweet!
    Mishkin: Nice start but needs some action. Put some bumfights in there or something
    MarkDN: Starts to look great!
    Arthemis: Everything is kinda the same value. I made a very quick overpaint to show what I would do.
    IceMoon: That really is a bad side of the city!

    I scrapped the thumbs and started painting something that doesn't make sense

    IceMoon: the epic size is awesome

    wip/speed paint. I'm not really feeling it. I'll probably start over tonight rather than trying to salvage it...

    Okay, we'll call this try number 2 since I didn't quite make the dead line on CHOW 153... but after doing some research on this I came up with this....

    I took bad part of the city to mean those who suffer in the slums around the world, often within sight of rather lavish dwelling... I

    I am having a lil bit of a hard time since I don't really have a work flow, or anything... I don't know much about under painting or over painting, or really any commonly used methods... so I want to push hard and learn. Please crit. and if possible point me to any good digital painting tuts showing workflows...

    THANKS!!!

    @h2rra: Thank you so much for the paintover!! I was really struggling with this drawing, how to give it more depth and atmosphere. You gave me very useful advice and I will give it a try!

    h2rra: oooh dude. I like. Strong vibes of Jaisalmer. Do you know it? If not, I super-strongly recomend an image-search, it'd be a rich source of inspirational ref for your piece.

    Hideyoshi: Not somewhere to hang around at any time of day!

    I have a bit of a problem with this topic - or maybe it's a problem with myself - which is that these places we're coming up with all look super-interesting, like the kind of places I'd definitely want to visit and bust out my sketch pad because of the cool atmosphere and view.

    hmmm.



    Mark – gonna be cycling home through some bad areas of London for reference tonight.

    Didn't totally scrap it, but still not loving it. Still too cluttered and lacking a focal point, I guess. Meh.

    I'm finished I guess (edit: well maybe not, maybe be the middle part has to much contrast? Does anyone have tips on how I can create a more realistic sense of depth?)

    IceMoon - I love the concept on this image. It's kind of scary actually, I guess that's why I like it so much.

    But I see what you mean by depth. The main thing is that the foreground pipe and junk city seem like they are a close up drawing of a miniature. I think you could help this by upping the atmospheric perspective.

    Add more blue tint near the top of the first tower and fade out the receding towers more with haze. It might be nice to throw on an Overlay layer and see what kind of results you could get with that.

    The other thing that might help would be making the lower city look more like a city and not just a pile of junk. I know that it's supposed to be chaotic and unorganized, but there should still be some city-like elements left.

    Nice work!
