    Perhaps the decendants of an unfortunate shipwreck, this tribe have made their homes on the steep cliffs of these rock formations that rise alone out of a turbid sea. Their society relies upon the masses of kelp and sea creatures that they hoist up from the oceans depths to use as food, building materials and clothing.

    E.O.W Round 20: Tribal Commune - The Big Vote!
    The weather changed and the water rose society broke down and war came. But the tides receded and what was left was a shell of the old world what was once great nations where now tribes. The East side and 16 street tribe lives where their names say. A old submarine is where there tribal chief rules and is there last protection from roaming scavengers and other tribes.

    This tribal commune exists along the only marked path on the Freundin Glacier. It has been able to survive by hunting seals, polar bears and other arctic wildlife to sell fur pelts to travellers crossing the huge glacier. With only three of the remaining 24 tribesmen remaining being women, it is expected that this well loved and welcome sight for trekkers may not exist for much longer.

    On Tongalla Toka, the northernmost island in the Tongallii archipelago, the Sabeth tribe resided in their hanging village above the waters of the Lasanya sea.

    Here they were safe from the scavenging Larda lizards that roamed the main island, while close to the habitats of their primary source of food, the delicious Inala crabs.

    The village of Kowahkta fishes and hunts sacred animals in the hills of Pokawatai. Their existence is based soley upon their willpower to live. The Kowahkta's huts are made of clay from an island named Rektu. The huts can be closed when the storms make the tides rise, as to not let water in so that the Kowahkta's can be dry even in worst of times.

    E.O.W Round 20: Tribal Commune - The Big Vote!
    The people of Cadan had always feared the so called," Underground society of the elephant’s tusk," but only in their imaginations did they fear this strong tribe of hidden Cadanians, for they did not know them. Long ago, a young boy found himself wandering through the great forest seeking, praying, and hoping for a situation that would help him prove his manhood. After 6 weeks of sparse rations and no interaction with anything but the fierce sounds all around, he came to a hole in the ground...like a wound in the planet's skin. To tell the truth, it was more like the hole found him. His body fell down deep into the cavern of green and blue light, only dwarfed by the light piercing the opening above. Before his body could turn in midair, so that this young traveler could meet his fate head on, his body slammed onto a hard yet wrinkled surface. He quickly turned to notice that fate had spared his young frail body, but it was what spared him that define his life, and the life of his people. The cave was full of mighty elephants, or, Elaphia, as His people called them. Thus, as the years went by, the young man's people honored the elephants by building a shrine to them, deep in the cave. They also took up residence in the great cavern systems, which had been molded by time, and the great winds from the nostrils of their god. The shrine was a creature likened unto the form of a Cadanian and an Elaphia, for in this cave, the two became one.

    Tribal Commune

    In the barren deserts of Reol live a hardy people. The unforgiving heat and sandstorms on the plains above drove these people to seek refuge wherever they could. They came across a long abandoned village and temple of an extinct civilization. The tribe took refuge in this village and remain there to this day.

    At the border of a south eastern jungle a tribe inhabits a series of tree houses. The tribe is known for it's ability to construct these homes that can withstand intense weather conditions, due to the placement of the supports and the density of trees that they are built in.

    Aaron Holley got my vote, great textures and terrific atmosphere in his entry.

    ...But just for future reference, around here it's considered very bad form to vote for yourself.

    Lots of great entries, really nice.

    tough, ended up going with Tyranx, the depth really got me.

    Aaron, awsome work.

    Dave, I thought your piece was great, really loved the idea, I think it fell a little behind in terms of execution, the face, those sand holes? great,

    Form! red works great, dark and sinister. urs not on the voting poll?

    Carafaele, wish you had put some colour it in, nice concept!

    Ah, so much greatness to aspire to!

    Makes it damned tough to vote for one though, hrmm.

    I think I have to go with Tyranx this round. Mostly because he captured the quality of light you get out here when a storm rolls in so perfectly I can nearly smell the rain.
    If I had a nitpick it would be that the buildings are a little to crisp and clean to sell the "long abandoned" and "tribal" aspects of the concept.

    bumskee, yours rocks. The brush strokes are just sexy. And the creatures to complement it...whoah.

    Tyranx, beautiful scenery as always. If I dare say so though, the dwellings look a bit out of place. Too 'flat' or little detail compared to the rest?

    redehlert, great great concept.

    Everyone else gets a hand as well, this was a fabulous round. Glad to be a part of it.

    Aaron Holley I love it! This place that you have created is just phenomenal! I love the well defined context of the amazon forrest itself and the light that is breaking through the indiginous grouth of plant life. The water adds that smooth and cool feeling that you are in a place of awe! Good Work

    Voted for bumskee... Adore the colour scheme and composition. Wish I could vote for Aaron Holley as well. There's so many great entries but I ended up refining my decision to one of those two.

    Voted for Redehlert - cool concept and execution.
    Really liked Form and CSoldier7's though.


    As for mine, I wish I had put some colour in it too! I don't have a lot of internet access (only at work), and I ran out of working days to upload a coloured version - I am working on one though, so maybe I'll post it when I do.

    Voted for Form. Loved the progression in the clouds from light to dark. Loved the red highlights on the.. what are those? I imagined they were rib cages from some long-extinct dinosaur. The lights at the end of the long branches moved my eye across the compostion perfectly.

    Second place was a tie between Tyranx and Bumskee, both very beautiful.

    Aaron Holley, I got no problem with you voting for yourself. It looks like you worked really hard on it; you thought yours was the best and you were just being honest. And it really is excellent, so cheers.

    Everyone else, also way to go, it looks great, especially RedEhlert.

    Hey guys, sorry, my bad about the voting thing, didn't know, won't happen again.....


    Plate...thanks for the comments

    Bumskee...Thanks man I would have voted for yours if I would have known about the voting thing

    Brandon ...Thanks man I appreciate it

    ohjay ...I like the concept I think if you just would have taken it a little further it would have been pretty awesome ....maybe some different camera angles ...maybe have it towering over you while the viewer is either swimming looking up out of the water or in a boat looking up and have multiple colony type things ....and I would really bring up those reflections of the land masses on the water

    Wow, absolutely gorgeous entries everyone. Congrats to all who participated in this round...unfortunately since you can only vote for one, oh jay got mine; I really liked the idea of a floating commune above the sea, it intruiged me to learn more about the culture.

    Aaron Holley got my vote. The quintessential tribal commune and it rocks. I was thinking about posting late on Friday, but I saw yours and quit.

    Tyranx as usual, awesome.

    bumskee sweet. I dig the speedpaint quality. Looks like you might be able to complete these in a couple hours?

    What an awesome EOW round.
