    Hi guys here is my FINAL.
    "Death's Lobby is a neutral, lonely place. You face death at the end, alone, where your fate is decided."

    Everybodys submissions are sick, very dynamic compositions, very moody stuff

    Wish i had time to do this one.

    here's a thought tho:
    Death (act of dieing ) is mainly portrait as being cruel or evil and sad, i noticed that in the Bible it rather says
    that we should be happy for those that pass from this world for they are no longer tormented,
    thru all the nonsense we all face in this world the trails and tribulations.
    i sort of think deaths lobby might be a siren place waiting upon the coming day of judgment.

    That being said it sucks to die, you cant make lovely art and my initial thought on this topic was something dark and gritty as well.

    anyways keep rocking guys!!!

    I'm going to have to work fast on this one!


    here are some really basic overall layouts i've hashed out,
    i'm liking the third one personally,
    flesh them out a bit more tomorrow

    i'm tempted to do something black and glittery,
    like a volcanic wasteland of some kind but its my first idea so
    i should mull it over a bit more probably.
    the one thing i do like is the idea of a road of some kind,
    souls headed towards deaths gate, i like that image.

    whatcha think?

    done an hour of detailing, but don't see any noticeable deference, so it's finished

    Thanks for the crit Incinerated, I'm trying to go for an unpleasant feeling in the peace.

    Death's lobby

    Here is my first sketch. The two arches by the statue will go to heaven or hell. I still need to work out the light and dark of the place.

    I decided to stop drooling over mordecaidesign's and PixelTuner's thumb rampage and try this round. Currently attempting to overcome my latest hard edge addiction and add some textured softer mid-tones for a change.

    Vyse, Luis Gama and MartinC are rocking it.

    My starting inspiration was a doctor's waiting room, and I wanted a lone, simple metal chair. I also wanted something "off" about the image, so that led to the skull reflection in the tile. Also a little humor in the "LIFE" magazine on the chair.

    That's awesome. One thing that's a little off though is the perspective. You might want to raise the point of view a little bit so it looks like the viewer is sitting on a chair as opposed to on the floor.

    I'm going for a similar concept, where the imagery of death is very grounded in realism and people's mundane lives.

    I love crits!

    Hey peoples! I'm embarking on a mission to learn how to paint landscapes from imagination, and I reckon participating in the EoW's is a great way to make that happen ! So hopefully will be completing the brief most weeks!

    Don't have much time right now, so I got this out this arvo. I'll call this the final unless I get more time to tweak.


    so, Final !

    My first idea was to paint an endless corridor with old and rusty walls, dim lights and somewhat abandoned and depressive look, but then I decided to go for a more classical hall-with-a-gate concept.
    The idea seems very unclear from this picture, but these insects represent souls of the dead (:

    monsi: I love the design especially at the upper part. I think that the cold hue of the silhouettes is a bit too blue for the overall scheme but I like the way they are rendered (radial gradients?). Also love the color variation of the structures at the back. I think that the whole picture needed a bit more "air" at the bottom but that could be me.

    trespasser: very cool enviro concept, only thing that bugs me is the hard edges of the light cone. The columns seem to be better rendered in the thumbs(?)

    mordecaidesign: The palette you used is one of my favorites. I also like your composition, looks very intentional. I would like a bit more detail and contrast on your focals. The eye moves easily around the picture but when it stops there is no detail candy. Nice use of atmospheric perspective and color aberration.

    Duman
    : those hands are creepy! Using 2 point perspective instead of 1 and color variation would offer more punch. Also, I think that the reflection of the chair should not be the exact image flipped vertically, but should show a bit of the chair's underside. I really like the idea of a soul "aquarium"!

    KentaWolf
    : Love the idea and the hint of humor. Looking forward to seeing the finished piece!

    Bringing some textures into play. One or two spots that still bug me but its coming to an end I guess.

    I think this will be my final. Went a different route yet again from one of the thumbs. Maybe some tweaking here and there, spotted a nasty tangent.

    EDIT: updated image with tweaks.

    Here is an update. I fixed some of the perspective problems and am starting to get the mood. I hope that I have enough time to finish this. There is a lot of good art going on here.

    Albino- Thanks for the feedback, and I'm loving your image! I'm wondering what you mean by a bit more 'air' though?

    Thank you for the feedback, Albino-Z! Much appreciated. I tried to follow your advice (:

    A small update, I made some minor changes which probably no one would notice — blurred the edges of the cone, changed lighting on columns, refined some details.

    There is a LOT of things that I don't like about this image, but I think it's my final:

    Friday at midnight is fine, if it's past that time frame that's also fine. The due dates in the EOW are flexible at all times.

    Red face FINAL IMAGE (S)

    Here's my final image(s)!

    I am unable to choose between the two compostions below as my final image...Vulgar, would you mind me leaving that decision in your hands?

    The concept is Death waiting as his hourglass counts down to the arrival of the recently deceased, as there spirits enter his lobby (via a portal) they surround his thrown to await there fate.

    Hey monsi, I meant a bit more space below the horizon line which would equal a slightly higher eye-level.

    Some of these are really breath-taking. Ah, I think I will just give up and watch this round.

    Another round that is just inspirational....from the thumbnails to the more developed ones, all sparkled with imagination and having fun.

    This is my final....took away some bits and added some other bits to finish this abstract approach to the theme. Its all about having fun and I had quite alot of it...so thanks for the interesting theme.
