    This is what I got so far. I'm really not sold on the hands yet. I have a few other ideas but I wanted to see what everyone else thought before I scrapped it.

    Is this my first EOW that I'm taking part in? Not sure. Anyway:


    Started by doing some stuff in the sketchbook. Trying to find some compositions. My method for working in my sketchbook is: Make mistakes in the sketchbook so I don't have to when I sit down to actually work.
    E.O.W Round #182: Death's Lobby

    Then I did some random thumbs, I've been meaning to do some anyway (This is great fodder for compositions for months methinks)
    E.O.W Round #182: Death's Lobby

    Based off the thumbs I've come up with A and B

    A
    E.O.W Round #182: Death's Lobby
    B
    E.O.W Round #182: Death's Lobby

    Good luck to everyone. Lovin what I'm seeing so far!

    A bit of direction needed..

    Duman : I like the silhouette of death and the hands...maybe too handy? How about throwing in a couple of cheeks...of the face variety? Also I think the image might be a lot more powerful without the thingies on the side, or at least putting them into a bit of shadow maybe?

    mordecaidesign holy thumbs Batman! I'm always so precious with my thumbs, I need to really whip them out like this!!! I like both, but think A tips B slightly, though I don't have a sense of the enviro design in terms of the whole death theme yet.

    Speaking of which I was hoping to get some help and wondered what people thought between these? I'm teetering between 1 and 4 but not convinced either way.
    1 is kinda gothic-y medieval bone cathedral etc
    4 is more contemporary, though I would need to death it up a bit more. Note the idea is that this is the waiting hall before being summoned down into the pit or up the stairs into the light kinda thing...

    Mordecaidesign: Good man, you inspired me to go back to the drawingboard and blast out a batch of random thumbnails as well. Just to explore composition and not go with my first or second idea (which I generally do a bit too often)

    I have couple of faves, but not sure yet.

    Another batch of thumbs, and one of those last ones developed into something.
    It's actually one of the simplest but I felt I could do something with it storywise.

    You went nuts with the thumbs, good job! I like the one you developed, think has great potential but atm is kinda tight, maybe expand the right part. Also design wise having letters on top of each other is normaly a bad idea, its way better to just write sideways. Keep up!

    Thx! I'll keep the letters on top of each other though, it's a reference to those crappy neon motel signs.

    holy crap-oly you guys suck. I'm shall now post....one...bill-yion thumbnails...dun dun dunnnn
    Awesome work pixeltuner. There are quite a few gems in there. Luis Gama has a point about it being "tight". Compositionally this works, but the sign is taking up a lot of focus especially if you suck at deciphering backwards letters like me! If that's your goal this is fine, but I guess leaves less to go around for the surrounding environment. I could imagine seeing more environment or a larger tower or something if the canvas was extended as Luis suggests.

    I might make the sign a tad smaller or widen the canvas, or both. I'll just experiment.

    And yeah, I think have quite enough thumbs to entertain myself the coming time.

    Death Lobby

    Just kicking out some ideas. I wasn't sure if "Death" was an actual entity or a place, so I chose to mockup places where those who met death waited. I might try doing some concepts for Death's (an entity) lobby (waiting room).

    monkeybread-I might go with the first one. It's mostly based on personal preference, but that seems to fit the topic the most to my eyes.

    Luis Gama- I'm really digging the colors I'm seeing in that piece. Looking forward to seeing where it goes.

    Pixeltuner- A pretty cool concept. It will be interesting to see how you deal with the massive crowd and the style of the little control room. Love the huge amount of thumbs. What kind of brushes are you using for them?



    Updated image, still not sure of the hand idea. Might try to do a variation with wailing faces if I have time.
    I would love to know how to improve this, so thoughts and critiques are more than welcome.
