    EOW Round #232: Temple of A Hundred Relics

    EOW Round #232: Temple of A Hundred Relics

    TOPIC: Temple of A Hundred Relics
    suggested by BlindLynx


    This week's topic is an archaic, dusty one with cinematic potential. An interior perspective is preferred, but exterior is also acceptable! Good luck. Thanks for the topic, BlindLynx.

    Brief:
    1. Design an environment that adheres to the topic/theme.
    2. You must post at least once in this W.I.P. thread to be included in the finals thread for the voting poll.

    Deadline: June 18th 2014

    Congrats to Benedikt for winning EOW #230!

    Post your final entries in the "FINAL BURNING" thread which I will post a week or so before the due date. If you need more time to get your finals in, let me know and I'll extend the deadline.

    i've decided for an indoor scene. well, a semi-indoor scene hence the ruins. i wonder if i can pull off the clash of timelines feel i aim for. the ruins will suggest the present day while anything else intact the parallel timeline of 1273 as if they'd exist on the same plane. whew..

    Wow Jamsession, that indoor scene looks great. I chose thumbnail 6 from my sheet and I'm struggling to get my pillars to look nice in perspective, but you've smashed yours, they look really solid.

    whoah! i'm honored :DDDD thanks, though i've messed up the perspective of the statues in the second thumb haha! your thumbs are really good as well and you've picked my personal fave. you might go for a 3 point perspective, that trick is always my rescue whenever some objects arranged in circles are givin me a hard time :)

    i might ditch the cross or replace it with a catholic one, i just realized i've referenced the wrong cross for a catholic abbey, this one is anglican, sorry and no offense to religious folk out there :)

    Jam, why does it have to stay a cross? I like Celtic crosses, or German ones, even Russian Orthodox crosses, but you can also look up Norse holy symbols if it's a religious place, or any other religion for that matter. Vary which symbols are usually associated with the architecture. Unless you are trying to make it religion specific.

    yeah, i like them all, in fact i have thing for medival architecture and temples in particular, no matter if they're catholic, protestant, orthodox, hindu, or muslim. i especially dig armenian and assyrian chapels, there are a fair amount of artifacts and exemplars down here where i'm from :D anyway, the thing is, i'll base the story on a real fact in the history about sweetheart abbey in scotland, which was a catholic complex, farm, etc. that's why i was concerned about accuracy :)

    I'm having trouble with my piece
    I have to draw up an album cover for my friend this week too, so I might not have time to finish.
    I'll work for the rest of today and see if I can save this.

    Jamsession, Those colours I love it, I do have some suggestions on how to make it even better though.

    The cross is a little bit light in value, especially considering the woman has a much darker, you want the cross to be the highest contrast in the piece. It's also a little bright in general, you are missing some darker values to really sell that sun burst, light next to light is just light, but light next to dark is much brighter.

    I did a quick paint over to show what I mean.
    Keep it up, this is seriously killer work.
