    Welcome one and all to CA's newest activity, the Environment of the Week!! I hope to see lots of COW regulars, and lots of new participants too. I have spoken to some very interesting people and have a few great surprises for you all down the track!!

    On a further note, the winner of round one (voting will be done by poll as in C.O.W), will have the honour of his or her artwork being used as the title logo for every e.o.w thread. Exciting HUH!?

    Get to it people, and spread the word... theres a whole new world waiting for us out there!

    yeah. but i would still have liked a little more time to talk about the rules and such..
    like why cant sketches be accepted? a sketch is the bloody heart of a picture, it can say just as much as a finished 10 h piece. a sketch can tell the whole feeling, while a finished piece often just tell you the time taken.

    I would have hoped this activity would encurage (or at the least tolerate) quick enviros. Its essential for learning perspective and viewpoints! You learn twise as much from that than from sitting with a small pencil for 3 h. It helps you get a good overall feeling for colour and mood. Thats a good enviro in my eyes, and I wich it to be accepted so we who like it can be able to vote on pictures wich stimulates us.

    Awesome, there should also be a little EOW smiley like the COW llama.

    EDIT: those are some valid points... maybe there is a middle ground between something fully finished and a quick sketch?

    tuchten: sketches and wips will not be accepted because it allows for members to give up on a piece if they dont finish it, and just post that. A sketch is a preparation piece for a finished work. We only want finished artwork here. It enables us to be fluid with our criticism, it enables the judging to be fair, and it ensures a level of quality in the thread.

    While i in all ways agree with how valuable thumbnails, sketches, and so on are, the fact of the matter is - this brief is for finished pieces, that show time and thought.

    I would appreciate if any further discussion was taken back to the discussion thread, this round has started.

    from one source:

    titan
    n 1: a person of exceptional importance and reputation [syn: colossus,
    behemoth, giant, heavyweight]
    2: (Greek mythology) any of the primordial giant gods who ruled
    the Earth until overthrown by Zeus; the Titans were
    offspring of Uranus (Heaven) and Gaea (Earth) [syn: Titan]
    3: the largest of the satellites of Saturn; has a hazy nitrogen
    atmosphere [syn: Titan]


    You could also take it to mean 'titanic', which means large, imposing, etc

    Its up to your interpretation... this will be awesome to watch what people come up with!!

    hey llothcat, glad to have you participating. I like where its going, i like the rop outcroppings. Watch your perspective however... right now the ground plane is sloping impossibly steeply... unless that isnt the ground which im reading it as.

    as you tilt your head up, the horizon line drops - right now your horizon line is still central in the image, it should be off the bottom of the canvas... cos right now it looks like we are looking at a fortress leaning almost horizontally backwards, instead of achieving that sense of a worms eye view.

    sheesh that was hard to word.. i hope you understood

    fantastic mike, i love the ever so slightly victorian looking architecture. I can definately see a truckload of warheads rolling out of there. Glad your in on E.O.W, shall i make the next topic "The house of white lanterns"?

    Thanks guys-
    If I have time I may have some "tank-like" vehicles rolling on over the bridge to the left and some flying vehicles heading on in from the right foreground. I'm not sure I wanna clutter this anymore though so we'll see.

    Form haha- That might help me out, considering I'm finding it hard to find time to work on my project. I have some sketches of hermit crab creatures worked up though and I'm working on some colored versions, still for the "Morgines Town" area of White Lantern.

    Just a little WIP.... itwill update as i upload more as i go along... so atm.. its juts a WIP...

    E.O.W Round 1: The Titan Fortress

    Gonna work on the description more aswell.

    The Titan Fortress.

    Towering above the ground below, in the mountains among the clouds, The Titan Fortress Resides. A homeplace for the New World Government and Ministry of World Defense, the councils in place hold almost all the power in the world, and are situtuated closely together within the fortress. There almost godlike status to the planets people, and there castle among the heavens, lends to the name, The Titan Fortress.
