    EOW Round #236: Deserted Spaceport Shantytown

    EOW Round #236: Deserted Spaceport Shantytown

    EOW Round #236: Deserted Spaceport Shantytown

    TOPIC: Deserted Spaceport Shantytown

    Brief:

    There's no one around, not a single soul, just remnants of what was once a busy spaceport/town with no present need for a mayor.




    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: August 16, 2014



    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.

    Was hoping to be first in entering WIP but got beaten to the punch D=. Was a little confused of what was meant by "shantytown", they mean the ones you find in like Rio de Janeiro right?

    Hey all, trying to stop lurking once and for all and get involved. Hopefully I'm not too late on this one. Here are some thumbnails/brain storming ideas. Is it necessary to have a more refined WIP or can I jump right to the finished piece from here?Name:  space station shanty town'.jpeg

    Sorry for such a long reply for such a small question

    I didn't understand the question completely but I will try to answer anyway.
    Thumbnails are not WIPs. They are tool for exploration of ideas and compositions.
    WIP is the status of the painting after you picked one of those thumbnails and started painting.

    And as for the question of do you have to do more thumbnails before jumping into painting,
    this is how I use these challenges. I pick one of my weaknesses and spend more time on that and don't worry much about the rest.
    For example, if I want to improve my thumbnails, I work for 3-4 days only sketching thumbnails until I get a good at exploring ideas and compositions. and I finish the piece in 1-2 days. There I don't worry much about color, lighting, texture etc.

    With this method I don't do the best paintings but I clear my weaknesses with every xOW challenge.
    Presently I am concentrating on quality line work and rendering geometric(non-organic) objects. So, I am doing IDW

    So, my answer is, if you want to get good at exploring thumbnails, go ahead and spend more time until you are happy. Otherwise, pick one of those thumbnails. That may not be the best thumbnail that you can do, but jump in and start painting and spend more time on something like color or lighting or materials or texture or anatomy..........whichever you want to improve.

    Thanks for that answer Coool Brain. It reassures me that it is ok to use these threads to learn and not to be perfect! Because i am so far down the learning slope .. but it is really useful to have a specific thing to work towards, and to be pushed way out of my comfort zone.

    So here are some thumbs, thinking about different approaches

    Decided to try a space scene. I love space scenes. Youtube tutorials here I come! This unregulated spaceport was constructed on an asteroid in the good times, it was deserted when the astral economy collapsed. Wip.

    Coool Brain: Thanks for the thoughtful response. Indeed, that was a little more than I was looking for lol but all great stuff for me to think about.

    I was just wondering as far as EOW is concerned do you need to have a "proper" WIP posted in this thread to move on to the final round. What you've helped me realize is Thumbnails =/= WIPs so you definitely covered my question in there. Thanks a lot I appreciate your approach and will consider incorporating this into my working process. Thank you again.

    Here's my WIP for this weeks EOW. A little background to make up for the lack of detail: My idea was that this was initially a military or government space station re-purposed as a refugee camp. However, the star is has been orbiting has since become a Red Giant rendering it uninhabitable.Name:  Shantytown.jpg

    No background as yet; I pictured an abandoned makeshift space-station that was once a hub of activity, and now is coming apart piece by piece as it drifts aimlessly through space.

    hello fellow environmentalists, ive only had a chance to do a few pencil wip thumbnails for ideas (and as you can see from the top right one theyre still work in progresses themselves >_>) i keep finding that if i like one i start adding too many spaceships and as such kinda lose the 'deserted' feel. Oh well, gotta start somewhere!

    loving everyones entries so far
