    EOW 151: Coven of the Dark Oracles

    EOW 151: Coven of the Dark Oracles

    EOW 151 Coven of the Dark Oracles
    Topic description:

    A gathering in secret... a commune of evil monks. A place of worship with high priests, maybe where sacrificial offerings occur. A knighthood, perhaps... could be set in the early 1600's or in the future, kind of like a digital version of witch folklore. Think of the dark creatures from 300 in the skies, the Sith lords in cloaks at a sky dock in the rain. It can be gothic, olden, ancient, Pagan, or if you want to be clever you can draw the Bush Administration. (I kid, I kid)

    I think I've said enough.. artists, you know what to do.

    DUE: November 22nd

    Begin sketching! GO!



    No description required, but descriptions are encouraged. If you choose not to, say what you need to say visually. Your environment should tell a story in it's own.

    POST YOUR FINAL HERE THREAD.

    SAVE YOUR FILES IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT. EOW##_Nickname
    example: "EOW#100_Chaosrocks.jpg"

    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC

    Add an icon to your final post
    150 pixels either direction
    PLEASE OUTSIDE HOST THE ICON.
    Thanks!
    An outside host means exactly that - an image host that's not Conceptart.org. Instead of adding the thumbnail with the attachment manager, you have to host it on another site (your private domain, photobucket, (both recommended or imageshack for instance)
    The full image gets added with the attachment manager, however.

    After you've uploaded the thumbnail somewhere, you simply add the [IMG] [/IMG] around it and you're done.


    Note: another moderator or a volunteer will need to do the voting poll thread, I'm not really sure how to do the polls with the icons of each entry. If you have any technical questions, ask in the thread because I probably won't know.

    I hope I didn't interpret it wrong.
    Here is my (verry stereotipical) sketch:

    Oh fuck matt I saw that in your SB, I didn't realize it was for this. I'll really have to bring my A game to get anywhere NEAR your level... Time to work hard I guess

    I did some hard-copy thumbs, then went and did a quick mockup in Blender for a perspective guide

    Great topic... as allways.
    Matt... what kind of furniture do you have inside your head? Where can I get that? As karyl gilbertson said... time to work hard.. I suppose as well.
    This time I worked directly in photoshop..
    My cove... (I´ll try to manage the outside site in the final)

    here's my start.
    If I can make some more time this week I'll add some more secretness to the building make it more of a gatheringground. maybe improve the composition.
    right now the oracle is pretty much based on at which heighth and direction the smoke is coming out of the chimney.

    Great start all - some really promising thumbs.

    Here's what I've got so far, will probably switch direction though since the deadline isn't for a while yet...

    Did a bit more work on this, still a long way to go... Think I might have the change the scale of the "figure" in the foreground (that blue squiggly thing)

    Calling this one done. Will hopefully get an alternate version done before the deadline. Some great looking entries so far, loving those thumbs Matt - would probably go with bottom right, although they're all tasty.

    Icon

    The stairs on the right in front are a little too dark. They blend in with the collums in front.

    I liked the stylized figure in front from the picture before better. That one look really good in combination with the lighting around it, very sculptural. I would go back that one step.

    Maybe the perspective/horizon line is tilted a little too much. A little more settle would do good i think.

    Here's the next step! Getting pretty close, but I'm gonna wait on it for a bit and see if I can make changes and tweaks to improve it before the deadline.

    My Coven. If you have any suggestion I would appreciate it.

    Sean McClain - I think the horses head is a bit big, but otherwise looking good.

    I like what you did to create atmosphere, although I think you blurred out too much of the foreground (the hanging rocks). For me atleast, it is very distracting.

    Also, with some of the shadows on the clothing, it almost looks like there is a second lightsource coming from behind the people, esp. in the foreground. It looks like that due to ther clothing being lighter in color opposed to the people on the opposite side of the fire.
