    maybe the people just wear wet t-shirts all the time... If I were to make a waterfall city..it'd be in a tropical climate.

    oh yeah I probably should

    Actually, I had this idea that they had dens or foyers in the mist for fun and to keep cool, but they lived inside the rocks. Though I didn't show it. I will most likely revisit with more "City-ness" at some point.

    Wet T-shirts? Sounds like a tie-in with CHOW.

    Thanks for the generous deadline and the inspiring title, I'll definitely have a try!

    Justin Oaksford- Nice start! There's a very nice misty, water-droplets-on-the-camera-lens type fell to it. For a critique, I'd say to clear up the cliff/rocks that the buildings are standing on.

    Okay, here's some doodles for my piece. I'm picturing some sort of ancient Mesoamerican city, with pyramids and stylized animal statues and cobblestones and all that. The waterfalls in this city are all artificial, cascading down the sides of the huge pyramids and coming out of the mouths of the stone animals and such.



    By the way, Chaosrocks, I'm liking the nice long times we're getting to work on these.

    Update 1: Here's a little doodle for my entry. I'm not too sure about the values and I think I'm going to add some more decorative details in the architecture (so that the jaguar statue doesn't seem out of place), but it's the first compositional sketch out of very many that I've been happy with.



    Update 2- More thumbnails.



    Update 4: Starting to render. I'm going to extend the picture frame right a bit, so the ear doesn't make a tangent with it.

    hmmm i wanted to make the huts in these pics, skyscrapers and office building cause of the "city" rather than village, but after 10 mins trying to do skyscrapes(even realy basic ones!) i gave up and did even more basic huts so when you look at these picture the huts ans skyscrapers in the same position.

    these are realy realy basic, 5-10 minute speedy style paintings, like a personal rough design breif



    although these are rough designs tips, info and advice is still very much appreciated, im a noob enviro painter you see.

    this is my more piece (ref), roughly 35 mins i think, still low standard, and poor rendering but, hey thats me but im still goin through the thought process will probrably only start finaly night before deadline.

    I would like to have a go at this one, I like the open topic.

    @JustinOaksford Nice start man, I like the colours, the only thing I would say is (and I know its wip) that it's not substantial enough to be a city - I would keep that perspective, pull back a bit and put some more heavy duty looking buildings in, more important looking ones. That's just me though. I have been looking forward to crossing paths with you in these message boards - I like your work. Look forward to updates.

    @Life on the sofa Couple of nice ideas, I like the top one best, it almost looks like a city on some structured scaffolding under the river & behind the waterfall. My only crit is as much as the high/low perspectives are indeed in perspective, the grid angle you chose is almost isometric, try pushing your VP's further apart and think of the height you want to convey, look into 3 point perspective for that, there's bound to be something on this messageboard about it.

    Will return when I can with wip.

    Adam.

    Waterfall City - WIP


    An initial WIP just trying to bring some ideas together.....

    life on the sofa - I agree that bringing the 'city' element out of brief is part of the challenge, to me it necessitates some degree of scale but I think it will be good to see who people approach it.

    Moai – looks nice, keen to see it come together.

    Justin Oaksford – Are you thinking of bring out some of the other elements that you talk about.

    The slightly longer time limits suit me well, just enough extra time to have to rush things through. As has been said, will have to try to produce something to merit this extra time.

    __________________________________________________ _____________________


    UPDATE 24.03
    Backing out - good luck to everyone else - will have to finish it off some-other time.

    Caught between two warring industrial powers the city of Derwell on Banbar had a long harsh civil war for control of it's vast hydro power generating facilities. But the inhabitance formed a resistance army and liberated their city. After the war ended and the waterwheels were rebuilt the past inhabitance began to wander back and start rebuilding their homes in their new socialist paradise.

    Almost final picture



    Final picture



    Hi! My contribution to EOW is a futuristic city called The Waterfall City.
    The reason for the name is, that it is situated along a huge waterfall,
    which has many functions. The main is to suply the city with electricity -
    for that they have four huge power plants. Of course they also have running
    water all the time, huge lifts for transportation and many activities inside the buildings. It is actually quite a happy city living in harmony with nature.

    as the water flows around your city the little horzontal flow lines are disconcerting
    ast h wave a[ptternns would not be going that direction...

    Cool! Nice concepts so far!
    D-Holm, Badger, very interesting...!

    Hehe, funny thing.... i just sat down on the sofa to do a few sketches, so i turned on the tv to break the silence, and guess what: i switched through the programms and stopped at a documentation about the mentioned niagara-falls =)
    Now, if that isn´t odd....

    hey life on the sofa Good to see another Uk'er about. Pop your head round the door of the UK thread if you like. Its in the local artists sub-section of the lounge.
    I've done a little paint over. Briefly on perspective, but more on general stuff. Though i would say make sure you lay down your perspective first. Anything above the horizon line you are looking up on, and there for draw it from below, and anything below the horizon line you are looking down on, so draw only it's above planes.

    Heres a Quick Paint over


    I'm very impressed by all your ideas though, thatsthe important bit!

    Justin Thanks man, yours is cool too, you've been progressing really damn well recently.
    [t0rc] I'm using Photoshop, a Wacom and a fair bit of traditional painting practise.
