    O.K. since I'm not going to out paint anyone here I decided I need to think a little more about the "CONCEPT" and then make the art "work" as I go along. So these prisoners are basically dropped on this planet with no resources provided by their captors to keep them alive. What are the basics they would need to "try" to stay alive? Heat and Food. Hmm. How do they make that happen from what's available. Well...there are certainly a lot of dead prisoners. GOT IT! Giant compost piles of dead bodies. They can eat the good parts and compost the rest and burn the clothes. Anyway here is my initial extremely rough sketch.

    Crap! I guess I'm not the first to think of this new green way of living.

    this might just be it, the final that is.

    EOW 124: Kryztaliss Prison, ice planet
    Kryztalis Prison, Iceplanet

    "Log#331#-T-33 In Sector 5, was home to a ultimate prison, the prison would walk the surface of T-33 to
    avoid seismic activity, that so common to T-33. WP-11 "Kryztalis" was made untraceable, to make sure
    prisoners wasn't sprung by the pirate clans that was becoming more
    and more powerful, Kryztalis was home to some of the most deadly individuals in Terran space/"

    I'm gonna try and jump in on this last minute... probably not a good idea but I finished my COW early.

    Anyway I am thinking the concept will be a large spike-like tower that houses the guards and oversees fields of frozen prisoners. Sentences could go for hundreds or thousands of years and the mortality rate would be high.

    I'll probably go with the last (colored) thumb.
    My basic idea is that the prison itself is thousand of cubes that are connected together,something like a small town (with road pathways and stairways that connect each cube) and is located in the center of six huge tower surveillance pillars ,many meters above the ground...
    I need to do some sketches to make the concept more clear before i continue with it...

    I had a similar idea, because when I saw this theme it reminded me of the Soviet GULAG labor camps in Siberia. The first ones to get deported to a new site were given nothing and were just told to start building the camp, even though nothing but ice could be seen as far as the horizon. But as an environment concept, it's a much bigger challenge, I think... No fortresses, no architecture...

    I am out of spare time so this is as far as I can take it. Can someone explain to me what I need to do to create the icon? This is my first EOW.

    Some really great pieces. Really.
    As for me, I don't paint snow too often, and would love some tips on how to make my piece better. It still needs a lot of polish.

    Icon

    Duman - There are a few basic things that would improve your painting. First off, composition. The pipes and building are shoved way off to the top and bottom. The remaining 80% is static. Think of eye movement, and harness it for your own benefit. Second, color. It's going to benefit you to look at some reference. Pay attention to how color emphasizes a space, creates atmosphere and scale, and modify your painting for what's important to notice. Getting colors specific will also lend a great deal of realism. Honing their inter-relations is going to give the image more coherency. Third, concept. The general objects you've provided are a sufficient base, but give them character by either making a nice scatter of details or torquing up more interesting shapes from what you have.

    Hope that's helpful!

    I must say these are by far the coolest (pun intended) concepts I've seen in the short time I've been following CA.org My own imagination went wild and it killed me not to have any time available to participate. I love all your pieces. GREAT WORK! I'd like to see the movie.

    This is my first EOW. Wooo! This piece took me about 4 1/2 hours. It's rather a small image, done in acrylic on 9"x 9 1/2" masonite. Kinda wish I'd done it digitally, but it would have taken me a LOT longer, and I didn't want to miss this. XD I'm not entirely sure how to do the icon thingie mentioned in the description. >.>
