    Messy thumbs, hurrah!

    Industry vs culture
    stonemasons vs vampires
    precarious cliff edge bungee jumpers vs..table.. strut..people
    dark vs light vs aqueduct. I dont know why they would need an aqueduct when theres a waterfall right there.


    Its hard to pick which one to go for out of these, vampires vs stonemasons is tempting, and but the aqueduct one makes an actual feature of the bridge!

    great topic!

    ALH, cool thumbs already! I like the first one best. probably because it's the most refined so far, but I like the composition and idea behind it. lots of potential in that one.

    hopefully posting a wip here this early will help me keep working on it and actually finish this bugger.

    *edit.
    -uploaded the second stage here so I don't clutter the thread with my wips. first color block-in.
    -and more color tweaking and rendering

    Not done an EOW for a while so this seemed like the right time to re-emerge! Here are a couple of thumbs to get me in the mood. I am partial to the first for the possibilities with depth, style of architecture, flying cities,(love 'em!) etc and the second for showing completely opposing cities in a snow environment, (also fun!).

    I completely forgot about Sanctaphrax in the Edge chronicles and yet subconciously the first thing I thought of for this topic was a city on a floating rock. ;\

    I'm definity going to enter this one (aka the only one I've actually entered).

    I was a bit confused about the idea of a cultural bridge. You mean a physical bridge between two cities with different cultures, or could one portray one city with mixed architecture and cultures, with the "bridge" being a metaphor?

    I'd still like to do something with a physical bridge, but I did want to clarify how conceptual this could be as well.

    Lightbulb Waste...

    Hello, this is my entry to eow 114 (actually first time i get into eow). It represents the bad habit of human kind of forgetting wasted and polluted places behind like nothing happened and build new shinny ones.

    Hehe, same stuff for me mate. There is a beginning for everything. First environment, first eow and first completed digital painting. I used to work in traditional media before, now i'm trying to get into this digital thing, but it's hard as I have a very crappy tablet and a very strange feel while working with it. Drawing without having the drawing tool in view is not something I'm used to . Hell even the lines don't get as straight and smooth as i am used to, but well, it's a start.

    Good luck to you too

    the bridge is not metaphorical...or if it is it's a visually depicted metaphor... it is one of the visual elements of the piece. It's odd, although many of you seem to be floundering withthe concept of two cities and a bridge.. the thumb compositions are actually better than most compositionally.

    This is turning out a lot worse than I expected or hoped for! Might have it finished for tomorrow, but I lost the passion or it now.

    Still kinda of new around here, I Felt inspired to try this out, I never draw environments, Only settings for characters.

    I wanted to draw 2 cites, one a industrial/mechanical age city, the other a more organic like city, Maybe an elvish forest like place?

    I also wanted to draw a tank, Cause i never draw those...Kinda drew it on another page, and threw it in via photoshop.
    I dont know if i will finish this tomorrow, But it was still fun trying.

    Just a value study with some color...

    I had wanted to do this one, but I'm over at the Illustration Academy right now and I think I'll probably be too busy to create a "finished" version.

    My idea was sort of an industrial alternate reality in which workers in an enormous power plant must "bicycle" their way across a long "track" from a mountain of shabby modern suburban-style dwellings to the monolithic entity. The irony being that even though there's an enormous industrial power plant city across the chasm, they're still actually using HPV's (Human Powered Vehicles).

    Even if I finish this after the deadline, I might post it in this thread, just for the heck of it.

    Deliberately left this to the last minute in order to force myself to learn how to paint faster. It took me all morning to get to this point, painting, making grids then deciding they looked rubbish, rotating it, then deleting then painting again, before finally flying into a GRR I HATE YOU IMAGE speedy paintover rage just as i was about to give up and go do some character work instead... which actually ended up improving everything.
