    brushes are just tools. It's what you do with them. I don't eliminate matte painting either, its how to get your idea across. (fair warnng, the matte painting better be damn good though...)

    Paradise is derived from a Persian word meaning a walled garden.
    And Chaos pulls me out of sweet slumber,,,

    Most interesting is that the Judeo-Christian story begins with God floating above the Deep.

    Hello all-

    Er, First post. I'm brand new at this! But it sounded like great fun. I don't have much skill at characters or scenes or art in general, but I figured this'd be a great way to challenge myself, force myself to get better, eh?

    Anyhow, thought I'd toss up my WIP before I headed off to bed and see what kind of reaction I could illicit.



    "In the beginning, there was a great, primordial stew full of amino acids and fishes and sunlight. A whale or a marsupial crawled up out of it. Or quite possibly an alligator."

    I decided to go with something rather traditional and not very fancy for my first try. Here's my primordial stew. Why do the Gods get all the credit? Darwin helped!

    A brand new world, scoured clean and ready for life to come pouring in. Well, animal life anyhow.

    It's twice the size of this thumbnail, and not anywhere close to done. I'd appreciate Constructive crit if you have it! Not much to comment on, but what do you think so far?



    Ah, Rabies, if you don't mind the crit, I'm not too keen on the great bright circles you've got there. I think the original was much more refined and pretty. : )

    Matej, I'd go with the second thumbnail. It looks like it could have so much potential! But that's just me!

    Time for a quick crit before bed methinks.

    Rabies: Nice idea, but the colours are a bit strong, too vibrant, maybe mess around with colour schemes and try to get them more similar to each other?

    Matejkovacic:I quite like the top left and bottom right thumbs, what's the idea of the top left? A godlike figure or a creation?

    MoonStruckDragonLass:Welcome to the forums! It's not bad actually, I think with a little bit of work you could pull this idea through. I particularly like the left side of the WIP, the tree and the rocky bit are well rendered for such an early WIP. Get the rest of the painting up to that standard and we'll see where you an take the idea from there huh?

    That's all for now guys, I'd enter but I'm looking for a decent Graphics tablet, and I'm more of a CHOW or POW guy anyway.

    Nice work all round, just keep at it!

    Longcat is long is an old idea (source: http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Long_cat )
    Oh 4chan.org and all its mutant offspring.
    I'm not even saying Artzealot isn't the original artist of that image, he may be; but either way it was an image made a long time ago and not for this specific challenge.

    Nonono, i just posted that in for fun. I didn't draw it either, but it seemed funny and relevant to the thread.

    I drew what came into my head, which is a creature that creates worlds, as a kind of creation myth. I tried to make the planet the focus but I'm not sure it worked out that way. Any suggestions to make this better? I was thinking of reducing the size of the creature in relation to the planet and taking out the sun to improve the focus.

    I even added a Myth poem to do with the red harvest moon

    Wyrm of heavens,
    In darkness ranges,
    Travels twixt the stars,

    To gather dust,
    Of systems dead,
    And bring them to birthing ground,

    By living stars,
    Forming new worlds,
    In every corner of the Cosmos,

    And every year,
    He visits his works,
    To watch the harvest grow,

    Always travelling,
    We catch a glimpse,
    When the moon does redly glow.

    WIP in the experimental beginning stage-- might not finish.

    I decided to take a different approach to this. Instead of going mythological or philosophical, I thought it might be neat to show a level being created by game developers, who are actually INSIDE the world they're creating, interacting with the mesh through weaving, pulling, and stacking.

    I think I might abandon this now, just 'cuz I'm really busy. So I just decided to post this WIP. I might pick it up as a personal project when I have the time though.

    I'd say it's 20% done now. The idea isn't really being clearly conveyed right now.

    But it was kind of a fun experiment so far.

    Not a very original direction, but im trying to show men establishing a new world; their initial approach upon something pristine which hasn't faced outside corruption during its early life - the first colonizable world found by man outside the solar system. I think the second image is closer to what I want, with new, shallow springs. Should be better with some otherworldly plantlife.

    Dude, Corrick, nice to see you're back Haven't seen you post in a while. I like the general atmosphere you've got going there. All the elements in there seem to be floating around a bit too much though, I think. They could use a few more clues of being part of the same structure maybe. Also, what about a few things in the foreground?

    I agree with yoitisi - a few more elements and this could be awesome - it feels like a great start and I was definately curious upon first glance.

    I need to rework some things, but heres the color so far on my new world. Advice so far is to drop the ships down and make them more of a focal point, since they ARE I suppose what will form the new world for mankind in the description.

    Corrick- Don't listen to them. I think it is absolutely fantastic the way it is!

    Though I'd like the see the robotic arm a little more clearly, however, and perhaps I would put a few things in to the left, just to show scale. . . .

    I don't understand how you manage to get such clean, clear, lovely colours. I can never manage shades like that. What program do you use?
