    EOW Round #238: Smoking on the Rooftop

    EOW Round #238: Smoking on the Rooftop
    EOW Round #238: Smoking on the Rooftop


    TOPIC: Smoking on the Rooftop

    Brief:

    A person or an object could be smoking on that rooftop. Is it a business mogul or a villain with a cigar, or is something burning up there because war is at hand? Interpret this topic how you see fit.


    Other Guidelines:
    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.
    3. It must be evident that your environment is rooftop-based.


    Congratulations to thechaoder for winning Round #236!


    Deadline: September 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.

    Good luck!!

    Mirichuuei, looks really good but you need to change the perspective on the top of the building he is standing on. It has to be way more horizontal, right now he is standing on a slope. If you fix that I think it will look fantastic!

    @mirichuuei: Hi! Hope this helps.

    First I tracked the questionable vanishing point.

    Name:  EOW_smoking-rooftop_1000px_width_01.jpg
Views: 1100
Size:  191.0 KB

    So, the foreground wall should be point towards that vanishing point.

Size:  163.5 KB

    Used the scale of the person to decide how far the wall goes towards the horizon.
    And we must be able to see the top of the buildings indicated on the right.
    The camera is at the height of that guy's neck(or in level with horizon obviously). Those buildings are below horizon.
    Also the scale of the sniper might be adjusted accordingly.

    Hope its looking little better now.

    @pavelmorr: Looks OK to me. Perspective need not be perfect in environment paintings as long as we avoid major mistakes.

    @pavelmorr: Perspective looks pretty good. Scale of the figure on the roof seems a bit off...slightly too big.

    The smoke's going to be coming from the village clusters.
