    EOW Round 157: LARGE WATER-FILLED KNOTHOLE POOLS IN SOFTLY-UNDULATING TREE-FORM LAND

    EOW Round 157: LARGE WATER-FILLED KNOTHOLE POOLS IN SOFTLY-UNDULATING TREE-FORM LAND

    This round is presented by Lord and Caretaker of the DSG, William B. Hand!



    EOW Round 157: LARGE WATER-FILLED KNOTHOLE POOLS IN SOFTLY-UNDULATING TREE-FORM LAND


    The idea here is that this sweeping, rolling landscape is formed not of rock and dirt, but of some ginormous ancient tree-like lifeform whose growth has been horizontally oriented, and has covered the original landscape like a skin. We might see vertical extensions of some sort off in the hazy distance, and maybe some nubby knots that rise above the surface, but dominating our attention are these lovely ponds created by these scattered irregularities. The general mood should be magical and lyrical.

    Of course, there might be some little fishes or bugs flitting in and around our semi-permanent pools, and maybe the small figure of an explorer or two just to suggest the scale.




    - Please specify which image is final!! Then post your final in this thread.

    Ideas so far,
    The description is pretty specific, how closely are we supposed to stick to it?

    Uhhh, I had some trouble with the attachment manager, and now it looks like my first picture is the icon for last weeks thread, haha. Oh so, strange. Or maybe it just looks like that for me?

    Emerging- Looks good, I feel like the yellow lighting should be spread into the top left corner more, perhaps.

    I made a marker sketch with some color enhancement. Don't know if I'll go further with it. Nice and relaxing to do.

    Really like what you did with the colors Emerging.

    hello everybody, this is my first try ever here.
    just got a quick digital sketch yet, and im not sure if im going to make it to a finished work in the given time. lets see...

    the branches look a bit like mutated octopus arms and are not knotty enough for my taste. im going to work on that.

    PMaz - like your marker work a lot. got the idea of cascades too, but changed direction...

    if a description is specific, it is specific for a reason. you have to stick to it, that's the point. which is why some topics are very specific and some are a free for all. actually I think in a real world art situation you will find this to be true as well. some art directors give you a potload of freedom and want to seee what you can invent, and others want an illustration of the Idea they have....
    Personally I find it rewarding to work both ways, within tight boundaries, and with total freedom.

    keep up the good work.
