    Milestone 2, started rendering the walls on the background, and center image with some color studies. Not final though, I'll try to experiment on my color palate later. Now I'm of to figuring out what to put for the details on the wall, that will go along with the concept I'm trying to portray

    Update

    Minor updates. I now got the female like entity on the middle. She's a symbol of manifestation of the artist's attempt to counter Pandora's mistake. She's getting ready to go out into the world and spread positiveness. The top bit is still bare, I'm running out of idea and I'm feeling the pressure.
    I must finish this for my own good.

    Apologies for the last post, it's supposed to be Milestone No. 3.

    Thanks Miycko, glad you liked it. In a way you're right. Pandora released evil into the world, take that in reverse, the world was put inside the box with evil. The concept is somehow the same, only difference is "Hope" was left inside the box. And that's what I'm trying to portray; The attempt of the artist to make some changes through his power of creation.

    Some update bellow. I think I'm also done with this.
    Though I'm not confident on the ambient color, some if you guys have some input, I'll see what I can do. I only got a few hours or so to finish this since this is the last week of the competition, and I can't focus on this much since I'm working on week days. I also want to give the female figure a pair of wings to strengthen the notion of positiveness that I'm trying to symbolize with her. What do you think? Any crits and comments are appreciated.

    Final

    At last, was able to finish a personal project. First time in years..

    Title: Counter Pandora’s

    Brief Description: Pandora, out of curiosity, accidentally released evil to the world, leaving hope inside the box. Artists of the new age have begun to realize their power and capability to shape the world. And so they utilize their skill and creative power, just among the things they can do best, to conjure positivity and release it to the world.
    In the artwork, the artist although corrupted by its malignant environment (symbolized by the chaotic abstract on the walls) summoned all his energy to make a difference through his art. Combined with pure will, focus and determination, his art materialized an entity bearing his motivation and purpose of creation. This entity symbolized by a female figure, one that was considered God-like during the early age, is getting ready to spread her wings and go out into the world and bring forth balance, counter evil and in turn, bring back hope (symbolized the Yin Yang gesture of her wings)

    Here's the final Image.
