    EOW #50 The Architect's House

    EOW#50The Architect's House

    This one has a bit more brief than the last.

    The architects House

    The outside of the home is a two story shack sitting atop a huge curled up tree root, lopsided and shanty like, peiced together with scraps and such, but The inside of the small rundown shack is actually a huge 15 story mansion full of strange MC Esher like rooms that act as labyrinths. It is a nigthmare of a house.


    The Architect was once a kind, humble man, who would put on magic shows for the children of the city, and play games with them in the labyrinths of his home, but now the children are starting to disappear and the people of the city suspect The Architect as the culprit. The Architect is currently in a deep sleep like coma induced by an exiled shade known as Xaodinat. He has been kidnapping children


    I will except any medium. you can image, inside or outside views of the house. taking into consideration the character of the Architect and the Creepy surreal and mutable qualities of the house. original story concept by Paul Fassett as Part of "Adventures in Purgatory"
    Now... concept!


    Due April 5

    NO DESCRIPTION NESSISARY AS THIS HAS A FAIRLY INDEPTH BRIEF on the other hand if you choose to concept the bathroom or some undelineated section of the house thats fine but you might want to orient us with a short description


    Ready! Set! Go!

    EOW #50 The Architect's House
    ok this is finall i dident have time to try any other ideas lots of course work, please crit me

    Desciption:"its finally done! admittantly its not how i planned but at least he's still alive. i followed his instructions perfictly except for the hosts, funny isn't the children that he once entertained are now giving him life, i too would have preffered to use the convicts he had suggested but i was running out of time! it had to be done!

    its incredible really all his own creation it simply takes the life force from the few chosen but leaves just enough for them to sustain themselves, such a brilliant mind we were lucky it dident go to waste, all i have to do now is revive him when the cure is found... it could take years but im confident it will work.

    disaster!!! a power cut caused the michien to fail breifly he's ok but we lost three of the children... im going to need more..." Xaodinat:

    Okay, I'm in. I'll do the outside of the home, because I like big, curled-up tree roots, and an Escher-like interior maze just sounds scary (to draw, that is).
    I think Jacek Yerka will be my inspiration this time around. He's a Polish surrealist who creates these amazing hyper-detailed paintings. I giant, ramshackle shack on a big tree route would be right up his alley! Here's a sample that was the closest I could find to what I was going for.

    Jacek Yerka indeed is a good choice of inspiration for this! He was also the first artist that came to mind...

    I'll definetely give this one a go, it sounds interesting.

    please clarify who's been snatching the kiddies -- the Architect or the Shade? The Archy is sleepy-bye, so I assume it's the Shade, but I want to make sure. either the "He" in the last sentence has an ambiguous antecedent, or i'm just stupid. prob'ly the latter

    So... is it just me being stupid, or do we really need to write a description? The one provided is pretty buttoned up already...

    EOW #50 The Architect's House

    She opened the door that would not open for the adults, stepped inside, and almost turned and ran back to the town. The strange and chilling expanse of the room drank the light, making it hard to see much, but she sensed the insanity of the place, and sensed also the regard of some evil presence. She wanted to run away, wanted very badly to run, but for the sake of her brother and the rest of the children, she knew she would not.

    __________________________________________________ __

    loosely base on Escher's Relativity, i'm treating this sort of as an illo for a YA mystery/horror novella. i think the gothic/noir quality of the B&W image helps the mystery -- what do you guys think?

    also, i've has the devil's own time getting into most any thread lately, so this may have to suffice for my final if i'm "locked out" later on as well.

    Vyse, my bad, I read too fast and skiped this part "shade known as Xaodinat. He has been kidnapping children", I thought the Architect invited the kids and then kidnapped them, it also freaked me out the first time I read it (reminded me of Neverland, CA).

    lets see if I can do this one as well. I am on and off in these activities I know, but it's usually my confidence and inspiration in my work, that does that. But I need the practice. Last one was impressive I hope that the same caliber of people come back to do this theme! Where is Hideyoshi at anyways?

    Arg the description keeps changing! Or did I not read it properly the first time?
    Anyway, Xaodinat sounds like an interesting addition to the piece.

    Sorry, but since I am kinda new to conceptart, will somebody please clarify the rules regarding posting wips for critique in this and other threads/websites? Thanks!

    It's 50
    i forgot to change it.
    edit ...k fixed


    the house intereior or exterior is your choice. the exterior has a more specific description. The interior has more scope for loose interpretation
    the character part is merely added as flavouring... people homes often reflect their lifestyles . you do not have to draw either of the characters. and you do not have to know why who ever is kidnapping the children is dooing it or how or why or if the architect actually sleeps....

    so if you choose to do the exterior those specificallt stated elements need to be included.

    the only person to blame for lack of inspiration is sitting right there in fron t of your computer.... the brief is plenty open. YOu took the easy and litteral way... think outside the box. this si a multidimension spanning house, the inside is bigger than the outside. do an interior. or actually render the one youv'e got so its not all saturated colors and blurry edges.....
    either way.... should be a challenge. not boring.. and please stop whining

    ... hm... should be easier than most to at least begin to visualize, anyway, this kind of idea has been kicked around for a while... check out the last Harry Potter flick. Little tent becomes improbable Pavilion...

    I'll bet no one can do the Exterior, Interior, Michael Jackson, Xaodi-whatever, the Architect and a Partridge in a Pear Tree all in the same image... that's right... no one...

    That's a challenge, that is...

    Chaos, you never cease to inspire...... or at the very least, kick someone's ass every now and then.

    it was one of the goals of the Cubists, iirc, to depict all surfaces of a subject at the same time. maybe if someone could channel a little Picasso... ah, but i forget, "modern art" gets short shrift around here. too bad.
