Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
No offense, but it's getting kind of boring to look at the same posts from one month ago.
Indeed, where has all the life gone from EOW? It almost seems like it was abandoned, but I know people keep checking back for new challenges.
I check the activity overview daily and it is sooo lame, that the EOW has entries from long ago and nothing is changing. Hello someone, please kick up a new topic, something to get the show going again. May I suggest a sci-fi environment with plenty of tech?!!!
whoow, what happened to EOW? o_O
Sad seeing it degenerate this way.
I personally am just too busy at the moment to participate... :/
But the right topics would attract some peeps maybe.
miss the good ol' times.
Maybe somebody should start the Unofficial EOW #43 post with a new theme.
Why don't we jump on the Character or Creature band wagon. Wait till they are posted and pick which one you would like to create a enviro for?
There's that five star "Post Your Environments" thread just a little scroll downward in the Community Activities level of the forum. Here's a prequel idea for the tech fans:
The offworld colony where the Blade Runner replicants jumped a shuttle.
Cool Vulgar, that would be great! Try contacting the board and let them know. The EOW thread NEEDS to continue, please!
Yeah EOW has been stagnating far too long. The themes are often set too complicated or too sloppy and open-ended. Add some more mainstream, it helped the COW a lot and it has been up running ever since that. I'm making enviros solely, but the themes of EOW never seemed to be interesting enough.
Something like "Jungle Ruin" or "Mountain Fortress" might help EOW get back onto it's feet. My 2c.
The environment is the very foundation for concept art. Otherwise you just have a bunch of characters going around on a white page or a blue screen. Can you imagine The Matrix if the entire movie was Morpheus talking to Neo in that blank white construct program?
Like, come on Morpheus, can't you at least whomp me up a recliner to sit in? WTF?
I'm getting started, and new to the board, so my two cents aren't much. But I would like to see some new topics so I can work on what I see as a weak area in my little bit of experience.
Vulgar: sweet dude - you don't really need any mod priveleges as I think you can post and even set up polls already. You will of course need to keep track of the time frame, post all final entries in the poll and decide which if any entries are inelligible. Can't wait dude!
Thanks Vulgar, I really want to start drawing for EOW, I'm just waiting for a cool theme.
Vulgar, have you contacted someone? When is this thing going to get started up again?
I've hosted tournaments before, but not for art - short stories and poetry. I don't think contacting anyone is necessary. I'll follow the format of the previous EOW moderator with a topic. I don't have a home computer yet, I'm saving up to buy it by the end of January. The only time I get onto the internet is at the local library, so I'll set up the thread, the artists do their thing, and I'll put it up for voting.
Sound like an airwave?
Best of luck to you, and looking forward to EOW making a ressurection.
Glad to see EOW back! I tried to email an admin, but never got a response back. But, good luck to you starting EOW back I will be lingering and submitting! XD
Is there going to be a new topic sometime soon? Sure hope so. And can anyone get together with the COW administrators and get an EOW star going? That would be an extra incentive!
you know if you are willing to let me mod this I'll try to keep it moving
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.
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?
