    I hope Chaos is fine, it's been a while and we haven't heard anything from her, so I guess someone else needs to take over until she is back.

    I would love to help if needed, but I do hope Chaos is okay and can return soon.

    Thumbs up

    I would really love to see EOW become a vibrant regular weekly event again.

    This is just my two cents but maybe on the final poll of the images each week there could be also another poll of suggestions for the following weeks topic.
    And the topic with the most votes becomes the next weeks EOW.

    Also I think the EOW topics should buy into what a lot of people on these forums like drawing, as a lot of us work on very restricted briefs during the day and would like to see more fun topics.

    Ie: Warlord's Fortress. Biohazard Containment facility. Abonded mine. Haunted Graveyard. Mountain labratory.

    Or more descriptive ones : A Uninhabited city after a virus made the population turn on each other.

    An abandoned Zoo where a mad doctor experimented on people and animals.


    Open to interpreation where it could be scifi , fantasy whatever.

    Gaius- those are quite cool ideas, I think I'd be up for drawing some of them, even though I'm not that keen on enviros...
    Can anyone tell me what happened to Chaos? My guess is that she had some kind of breakdown... Or perhaps she won the lottery and doesn't care about EOW no more?

    to start with
    many of the se topics are totally ....trite
    in the box

    Warlords fortress? damn .... look through the old topics don't ant of you want to draw some thing that hasn't been done 1000 times before???? how abotyu thinking in new directions?

    so many of these things are trite and tired...
    I have been trying to pushed to boundaries in neew directions....
    oddly the open ended topics have been well recievedbut I would really love to see some new directions. The last topic I left you with "Minature city" was Wide open and yet it seems that very few could see the possibilties in this.

    we'll see
    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.

    My theory is chaos has been hiding for 10 days waiting for somebody to take over her burden. And now she plays angry to save her honor but in fact she's happy someone can do it for her
    Just kidding.

    Chaos, no need to panic - EOW is yours and nobody's trying to take it from you. Me and purplerose decided world need EOW and wanted to help reviving EOW. Due to our agreement next topic is her but since you're back our agreement is valid no more, I guess. But it would be kind of you if you let purplerose make next topic if she still wants to.

    Hah! "Fuckers"...

    Hideyoshi said it best (sorry to call you out): the artists who participate and rock the house in EOW are just too busy. EOW suffers the most because the mainstays aren't engaged as much as say COW or CHOW... it's all about audience participation. I've seen it time and again where the energy ramps up to a fever pitch just because a few folks get involved and get everyone else motivated. That's one reason anyway...

    Another is that anyone who's done an environmental concept knows that they're a Super Bitch. Characters and Creatures aren't easy, but with a little backstory and a motive, it's one figure on a blank sheet of paper. A whole entire world? That's something else. It's a little overwhelming for someone to just pick up pen and paper and say "Gee, I think I'll design an entire civilization's idea of what architecture and function should look like." That might sound like a cop-out to some people, but I'll bet deep down in their nay-saying little hearts that they agree just a little bit.

    I don't honestly know what will generate interest in EOW. It waxes and wanes, and doesn't really have much of a pattern while doing it. And I don't think it has shit to do with a topic either, because I've seen some awesome topics come through with maybe 5 participants, then next week "Lonely Castle" pops up and you get about a thousand entries. It's about time and the necessary motivation individuals have to do a project. I'm as guilty as anyone for not having the time or energy, and I'll wear my hypocrisy all day long on a clever t-shirt. I have to take responsibility for the success of this thread just as much as anyone.

    Just one man's opinion.

    Well said Corrick. I'm guilty of the "no time" cop out as well. Recently forcing myself to pick up a pencil everyday to just doodle has helped me make time to draw.

    Maybe EOW can be extended a few days to help out? Because, like you said, Environments are a bit tough to crank out sometimes, especially when you aren't really motivated.
