    E.O.W Round #181: Centaur Rendezvous Point

    E.O.W Round #181: Centaur Rendezvous Point


    E.O.W Round #181: Centaur Rendezvous Point

    Brief:

    In Greek mythology, the centaurs are a race of mythical creatures that are half human and half horse. They are depicted as the head and torso of a man with his waist joined to the horse's withers, where the horse's neck would be. The word 'rendezvous' means a meeting place, an assembly point, a place where centaurs come together. Whether it's for war, for hunting or for leisure is up to your interpretation!

    May be interesting, I'll see if I can jump in on this one if time permits!

    Howie - I prefer the second one. I think it has more of an epic feel with the aerial perspective. Also the curves lead my eye around the page quite pleasantly

    I want in on this round...desperately need to be working on projects and want to build on my enviro skills...all the best and later guys

    Personally Id go with the first one, love the silhouette of the trees and to me it feels alot more "centaurish". Maybe rework the stones/platform he stands on tho to make it more of an natural podium.

    thanks Damien Levs and Ragnj, really appreciate the feedback

    I stuck with the first one just cause I thought it was a more interesting composition and I like subtlety more than epicness. Still trying to decide how many centaurs I want in there, I know there will be at least one more.

    Love to hear what you guys think so far!

    Sketch/composition/colourkey thingie. Trying to get a bit more of a dramatic angle pointing at the sky like it's some secluded place of worship.

    Sounds like a fun topic.

    Was just messing around and tried to come up with something. I don't even know if I'm gonna use any of these as I haven't settled for an idea yet but figured I'd post them anyway, maybe someone finds them interesting. I kinda like the middle one but the composition is kinda uninteresting.

    Interesting topic i'm in !

    @Kvenh i really love your thumbnails. I found out that the middle one is pretty interesting. Maybe make a closer shot of the scene. The design is very cool.
    But to my mind, if i was you, i'll go with the third one

    Rano: thanks for the feedback! I did some more work on the middle one, I don't know if this is really going anywhere though. Seems like I got a little further away from the kind of feeling I wanted.

    Might mess around with the 3rd one too as you suggested.

    @Kvenh no problem Your last thumbnails look cool too but the first one, i think, would be better to insert some characters and give a sense of depth to your design.

    But as you probably see, i'm not the only one who love the "Third thumbnails" :p
    You have a pretty strong design with this one, and if it looks epic at this stage, in color it would be a very interesting piece

    Your the artist, it's your decisions after all so it's up to you.

    Kvenh: Well let me chime in to say that I like the 3rd thumb most as well. Earlier stated reasons like the rock and the sense of scale are obvious plusses, but most of all it speaks to me mostly as a place where Centaurs would gather. They're kind of a nomadic tribe so a city or something with a man made structure would make less sense than an open place in the woods with a monolithic rock as some sort of recognizable (holy?) place.

    xbert, monkeybread, Rano, Pixeltuner: Thanks for the feedback!

    Pixeltuner: hehe I actually was thinking of more of a manmade city, not necessarily an advanced one but one build of stones and stuff.

    Anyway, sorry for posting so often, I was just having so much fun with these. I decided to work on the idea behind the 3rd thumbnail since most of you liked it the most. I'm not quite fond of that one as it is though so I tried to go a little bit further. Tell me what you think, I don't think I'm gonna do any more "thumbs" (I guess these are too large to be called such) so might just pick one out of these and go with it. The last ones definately have the most feeling behind them as my ideas started to get more solid as I progressed. I dropped few of the earlier ones but feel free to mention them too if you liked them more.

    Not sure about the shape in the background of #5, I just tossed it in there, was just playing aroudn with the feeling.

    kvenh: really like the atmosphere you got going on the 5th image, but maybe try adding the stones from the 1st image instead of the one thats there at the moment.

    wow, nice skethces guys.
    Kvenh, most of your thumbs can make it to finished piece quite smoothly. My favorites are 4 and 5.

    and my 45 min initial sketch:

    Thought I'd join in with one of these for once. Just a black and white concept at the moment.

    Hey everyone

    There's great things @_@

    I try this one for my first EOW ^^" I'm a totally negative level in that discipline, so I'll work hard ! Please, be true critiques Let's rock !

    I choose to make a kind of... nest/nursery ? Female centaur come here when she's pregnant and stay until her baby can run with her. So, it's a place of tranquility and peace. They have the forest beside and the water at their 'feet'

    And sorry if my english is ... you know... french. I'm working that too !
