    E.O.W. round 34: The Perfect Camping Spot





    Round #34

    Topic:
    The Perfect Camping Spot

    And by camping, i do mean the gaming term. For those who don't know, camping is when someone hides with a powerful long-range weapon (such as a sniper rifle or railgun), in an ideal spot, to take out enemy targets.
    What makes the perfect camping spot?

    For this round, no description needed (just make sure the concept is clear in the art) - feel free to add one if you want though. Enjoy!

    Deadline:
    Mon, Sept 18th 2006 11AM GMT

    Aw I was hoping for the other meaning of Camping...with which I have some experience
    have to rethink

    chaos

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Haven't decided if I'm done yet... I dunno.

    Edit: Updated - 'WIP' link below
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...rok27/eow2.jpg

    New:


    We stand within a bombed out husk of a building, a soldier barely of age stands talking to his comrade;

    "oh wow! Hey Frank!" with clear glee in his voice the taller of the two shouts to his comrade, "It's our lucky day!". The sniper behind them knew he should never stay in the same spot between shots, but having such success and as many targets as he had bullets temptation got the best of him. He had been there all day in fact.

    The soldier was still talking, "I mean, our whole team got blown away first thing at home base this morning; But man, Frank! ..." The sniper had become confident in his safety and skill, he was no longer satisfied to merely rack-up another kill; no he had become quite sadistic - he took pride in toying with his prey.

    "I mean Frank, there are more supplies here than I've ever seen in any one place other than our home base!" The soldier continued, still oblivious to what would be his last moments in life.

    "Thank God!" the soldier said with relief, they had no choice but to flee when their camp had been attacked this morning, without time to gather any supplies they had been wandering in desperation ever since. The sniper couldn't help but scoff at the soldiers words, "God?" he thought to himself, "If it was God that has brought you here I wonder what you did to anger him".

    "Say Frank, Does this..." The soldier's tone had changed from glee into near-panic, "Does this... Doesn't this look a bit like our home base to you?".

    "Frank? FRANK?!" were this poor soldiers last words, unheard by Frank for he had been shot dead by the snipers bullets not long before this story began.

    My first EOW

    Sniper is on one of the towers similar to the ones in the distance looking out over the land. In essance one has a 180 degree view though not all of it is obvious in the picture. Sunset with the sun low makes seeing your targets more difficult but not impossible. Land based shuttle craft are the main target of this sniper.

    Wonderfully simple, Evildisco. Don't forget the description!
    If you were to touch it up any more, I'd suggest helping that left side to transition more into the dropoff/horizon. It's kind of odd that there's a clean cliff and wires right there (if that's what it is).

    On Fossil Creek Road, about 12 miles before you get to the Verde River, there is a place where the road is flanked by two massive rock formations about 100 meters from the road on either side. Serious bouldering skills are required for the ascent so assault troops would have a tough job neutralizing snipers without artillery or an airstrike. The road, viewed here from one of the formations, is narrow with no shoulder or countryside to drive off into. This place has ambush written all over it.

    EOW # 34 The Perfect Camping Spot

    My first EOW. Never tried an environment before, hoping for some feedback. A bit of a sketchy one, a bit rushed. Spur of the moment last minute entry.



    Surrounded on all sides, they were the last two survivors. So far the ammo was holding out and none had made it closer than 300yrds... it was only a matter of time though.

    Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.

    Ah thats cool , I started my E.O.W , but work has gotten in the way . will post it this evening.

    Ok Still havent got a chance to finish it, about 90% , but enough of its there for you to get the idea.Still lots of adjusting to do.

    The Sniper is just a place holder , till I get a chance to fix it.




    In the Neo Republic Political assassins were never short of work.
    The balconies overlooking the exit to the senate have always been a favourite camping spot for those who liked to speed up political change.

    Gaius - Nice one, I like it. It looks like that inspiration for your work is one of the Mark Goerner´s works: http://www.grnr.com/gallery.php?page...2576&page_num=

    Thought I would give this a go. I have been soooo out of touch.

    " A dozen of us lay in the waste of city long abondaned. The goobs volleyed a handful of rockets into the debris seeing if it envoked a response of any kind. They would think like other vacated cities, there would be no one here. Well it was a nice thought anyway".
    "removed pic as it was late by almost a week".
