    E.O.W Round #189: Mount Olympus Training Area

    E.O.W Round #189: Mount Olympus Training Area
    E.O.W Round #189

    TOPIC = Mount Olympus Training Area
    inspired by jungpark from DA.


    Brief:

    Training area for the gods and the bravest of men. Just because they're immortal doesn't mean they don't train hard, after all...




    - Post your finals in this thread, I'll take care of the poll.

    Great topic. Not sure if I'll have time to finish, but I'll give it a go.

    wip

    A quick sketch.

    The background is supposed to be city of gods. the training area is where the gods summon various creatures to fight and improve their skills.(I am not going for a place where they are going to have a weapon specific training and so on.)

    comment please

    Does it have to be Greek Gods? I mean I know that Olympus is Greek, but the brief doesn't mention specifically greek gods. I just think it would be cool to do Norse gods. Would that still work?

    Yes, that's fine, but keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to have gods. Maybe humans have found their way up there too, you never know.

    ashess: strange take on the subject, i like some of your thumbnails, yours actually reminds me of religious paintings for some reason
    i like the very last image you posted the most very interesting camera angle.

    Sutan san: I'm liking the perspective foreshortening in this, the scale is epic so thats great!

    coool_brain: nice setting, liking the perspective in yours.

    WIP:
    the way it was in my head, tilted the angle a bit, tried to put it down on canvas. 4h30min so far
    i dont think i'll get to finish again!! AArgh!!!!

    uuuhg; I alsways start getting stuck at this stage.
    I like a lot about the last one prev post, but I cant get much enviro in there.. so maybe like this:
    E.O.W Round #189: Mount Olympus Training Area
    but I also liked that mountain poking out from the clouds on the first piece. in this one, the mountain goes up. actually, that has a little bit of something going, but it doesnt feel quite right yet.
    I cant get everything I like in one piece. I know that.. still, it irks.

    @adrian: I thought mine would be the most classical boring approach imaginable. but maybe im wrong. I like your stage, but there should be some kind of backdrop. like mountains in the distance; your horizon is above the paper after all. and the giant figures are statues I think?

    @pixel:it looks great. but im thinking castle right now. medieval even

    wip 2

    Allright, I don't have a lot of time today, so that's the thing I've tried. I don't know if I've killed the composition... but then again I didn't really decide on what my selling point is going to be. Hope to update tomorrow aswell.

    It doesn't fit the theme really well at the moment I'm afraid. I'm gonna try to turn it more god- and training ground like. The perspective of the building doesn't fit either.

    Wippy.
