    E.O.W Round #186: Earth's Womb

    E.O.W Round #186: Earth's Womb
    E.O.W Round #186: Earth's Womb

    TOPIC = Earth's Womb
    suggested by albino-Z


    Brief:

    This is an open topic.

    Keeping that in mind, you can ponder some scenarios of your own on the possibility of the Earth possessing a 'womb' of sorts, such as...

    - What if planets could recreate or reproduce? What has been generated from this specific space on our planet?
    - Is there a place on Earth where the landscape resembles the womb of a female entity or contains the very aura of creation?
    - Is this something of celestial origin? A place of ash and dust and swirling matter. A place where magical things froth about in a scientific soup.
    - A moment from Earth's "childhood" or mature development stage, the coming out.
    - Literally a womb for a species of creatures.
    etc.

    Whatever your approach is, my guidelines are that be it abstract, traditional or supernatural, your environment should encompass the topic in an aesthetic, understandable way. I think that's of enough of a brief for me this week.

    Show us your wombs or GTFO! (just kidding..)



    - Post your finals in this thread!

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    wip

    Nice topic! pixeltuner: you're on a rocket, mate!

    I decided to try a different approach this time.
    Since I hardly now my way around photoshop, I'll just play with as many brushes and layersettings as possible this round.
    Hopefully I'll learn something. This is the first thing that came to mind.

    Some sort of behemoth embryonic creature that one day will awake.

    Ashess: You might want to develop it a bit further before we can say something about it.

    Here's some development on yesterdays idea. Spiral soup of creation thingie.

    dont know if this quite says womb, but i think i got the dark, damp aspect down I think it needs something more symbolic of growth.

    i know.. but this is actually usally the place I get stuck.
    it's so much easier with creatures or people. I can pretty much add detail I want. here I just get 'you know, space...".

    Ashess practice makes perfect- plan ahead, what are you gonna put where fore-mid-back-ground... Start of with big brushes ... and so on

    That said this subject isn't exactly easy... Not giving up, just saying.

    Pixeltuner - I'm really digging that second image you posted, great feel to it.

    Harmageddon - Cool idea! Is the debris from the creature breaking out of its womb or from something else?

    Incinerated - nice start! I'm partial to the the top image as well.

    ashess - A really interesting take on this! Is that white circle in the upper hemisphere of the planet a highlight? If so I don't think such a strong highlight would appear on a planet like that. Have you every seen a highlight like that on the moon for example? If it is meant to be something else, then apologizes but its not clear yet. Regardless, keep going, I look forward to seeing more updates!

    M!CK - looking really nice so far!

    Some thumbs I've been playing with.
