    andriod - cheers.. I agree with incinerated on your piece. Atmospheric, but it seems quite a barren place and the blue creates a gloomy mood for me.

    Struggling along with this. Added a lot to the composition after I picked a thumb which may not have been wise but anyway..I'm going with it. Getting the values and colours to work together is being a pain..not there yet :<

    derek - thanks, colours in yours are looking good - like the complementary shadows a lot.

    Took out quite a lot of the darks, starting to lay down textures and trying to establish a composition for the final render.

    Hey! It's my first time ever in a challenge so bare with me! I figured I'd give it a shot.

    Here's my wip! I know it looks like shit now but it'll get better. I'll probably add some architecture and I have to fix my crappy colors and values ... I guess I gotta fix pretty much everything haha

    You guys have some pretty amazing stuff so far , I can't wait to see the finals

    @corrick- well, I can see you know what you're doing :p

    @rastaray- it looks good, but the colors clash a bit for me. try desaturating the orange a bit?

    here´s an update, I tried to bring in some story, so the idea is that this a magical place near a cemetry where dead people are reborn through a magical ritual, the souls go through smokey channels through the magic stone and reborn in some creatures (have to think about this more), maybe this could be the story for a b-movie

    Not sure if this is going anywhere. I had a lot better ideas but before I knew it had changed into something this generic.

    ashes- thank you for the input! You are probably right... the monster is moving it towards illustration rather than enviro, but I like the story implied. And the loneliness. And the drama. *sigh*

    I forgot to mention that I really dig Corrick's piece. Simple and very effective as always.

    Updatey! (maybe too much sharpening going on but since I like edges today here ya go)

    @albino- yes, it is dramatic. ^^ and it is a tree-thingy. though I only now see that.

    so, I watched some tuts before starting on this, now did another hour. I think it might become.. something. better then the last attempts anyway

    Here is my start. The womb is actually not containing any plants so far but the veins/roots of the vegetation uses the fluids from the 'womb'. So everywhere around the rocky environment where these things arise the plants will start to grow.

    I definitely need to work on the drama and the contrast a bit more.

    /

    Nice entries so far everyone! Keep it up Audit en Kvenh, I love your entries

    Hi, some great concepts going on in here, here i´m trying this....any suggestions, or C&C? let me know please. i´ll give some feedback later.

    later=now
    @Kvenh, i like your concept the most so far, the atmosphere is great, i´d like to see that environment in a movie or something 3d at least.... i really like it.
    @albino-Z, very cool! may i ask if there is any reason for the water not having any ripples? i guess you are letting that for later....
    @M!ck, nice one!

    all are doing great actualy, too tired to go one by one right now sorry!

    Cheers.

    Update. More nature and a bit more detail. Im not very happy with the unity of the elements and I think the rocky background could use a lot more work!

    FEEDBACK:
    @ Elephant; Are you going for a womb made out of flesh like in real life or will it become an nature-structure out of rocks and stuff? I think you could be more clear material-wise. Keep it up!

    @ Ashess: Is it a tree or a rock-thing? Because the trunk-shape suggest it's a tree but the 3 squares at the left of it makes it look like a ruin. And to be honest I don't see what is happening or what your telling us here. Maybe work some more on the story and the composition. Or take it with you for next time

    @Albino: I love the clean and at the same time smudgy style your digging. And although it feels like a rotting and dead womb, the concept is cool.

    @ Kvenh: I really like the color-palette and the shape of the tree's. Good luck with the final touches

    @ Animare; Great mood and lightning you're setting up. But watch out with texture-brushes. Your clouds are a bit too fussy and so it the mountain with all it furry-grass. Try to bring some variation in the foreground with some rocks maybe.

    @ Android: Great depth and storytelling. The perspective of the ring feels a bit off but apart from that it have some good potential. Oh and maybe pull that rock where the ritual is kept more from the wall with the gate. Or create a more obvious split between them, because now it makes the scale a bit weird, imo. I hope you know what I mean.

    @ Continue: Great to see your breaking out then! About your brushwork, I think your piece could use some sharp edges, especially where you want the viewer to look at.

    @ Corrick: Great mood and angle. But are this dragon wings we see? If not, I think the shapes aren't telling very much.

    @ Antipersonnel: I think the first one and the third are the most interesting. If you go with the first one as told. Maybe scale up the front planet a lot to create more depth.

    @ Rastaray: Great to see you're eager to learn! About the work; is the water going towards of away from the fiery womb? And the scale of the ball is a bit off (IF the baby is the same size as we know it from humans. Or is it a giant-baby?
    And I think you should desaturate some parts because it's an overkill on color. Good luck!

    @ Audit: I'm glad you created a larger foreground with this image. It create much more depth. I really like the contrast and the colors but I do think the tree feels a bit simple compared to the rest. Maybe a bit more think vines will do the trick, just to create a more interesting tree. Looking forward towards an update!

    @ Mick: great piece. very moody and great colors!

    @ Incinerated: I don't think you need the naked man in this image. I like the idea of the womb but it feels so off in the area. Not like it's growing there but more like it's been put there by someone. So maybe you should combine it more with the environment and maybe even create some more wombs instead of one? Good luck!

    -
    Let me stop the feedback here, sorry if I've missed you, i'll try to say more next time!

    Absorber, thanks for comment, i guess i´m trying to make a mix between organic and rocks/magma, a mix between an utero and the earth´s nucleus. So this sphere is feeding the earth somehow trhugh those kind of veins....let´s say the scietists don´t know much about it either.

    But is a very good point, i´ll see more magma references to see if i can make it more clear and solid as a concept.

    since we are here, i like the overall mood of your concept, i think the tree cutting the little lake in halfs could be changed, and also is kind of disturbing the view where it is. Is a nice contrast for the lake though, is the position wich might be problematic. The composition in general and imo has too much weight on the left too.

    cheers.

    " absorber° thank you for your feedback! its supposed to be an umbrillicacord that is ´rooted ´ into the ground and runs into the sun... sigh im not very good at this enviro stuff yet huh.

    yours is looking good though. if I had to crit, some of the leaves are really íllustration like which kind of breaks the atmosphere of the piece with the water lighting up like that. but I really like the mood and all.

    Absorber: Thanks a lot for the input! You have great mood and good values going on!
    elephant´s stroke: Since you asked for some feedback, I think that your values should emphasize depth more. Try a grayscale check on your piece and you will see that it reads kind of flat, things are coming towards the camera and to the back without a change in aerial perspective (value, contrast, saturation, detail degradation to the back). You could try and split your canvas in layers of different value to create a sense of depth. Save some dark values for your foreground elements and fade them as you go towards the background. Some particles or hovering objects or dust could enhance depth even more if you feel like it! That said, you 've got an explosion of colors and interesting shapes going on there. Keep it up!

    Many thanks to merl1n, Rob Powell, Robert Ladd, elephant´s stroke and ashess for the creative input.

    My final:

    Under the surface my heart dies
    Within those roots my mind lies
    Endlessly meandering in this shoal tomb
    longing to be born again,
    in Earth's moist womb
