UGH finals and more junk going on than I can shake a stick at!! I bit off more than I can chew
Holy crap in a can, Gaius, two badass entries in a row. I ain't quittin', but I'm sure as hell changing up my idea. It's go time.
My final crack at this one... I won't have any more time to add to it until beyond the deadline. Awesome work from DAN and Gaius... Definitely not that high o' quality from me but I still try with what I got.
-The Labyrinth of Flesh, Thought, and Self-
This is the visualized representation of the visions from a monk's meditations. He seen a great field of paths, each flowing and ripping into each other. In the center of the quagmire of living stone was three towers, the first revealed a complicated maze full of riddles and questions, twists and turns. After passing though, he found the next tower was but a single room. Even though many others had entered with him, he found himself alone. The daunting challenge of understanding himself eluded his chances to see the third tower. He spoke of it almost like he was within grasp of true enlightenment.
Updated final-ish on page 1. (I'll remove the "ish" before cutoff, Chaos, don't worry. I can read big red letters.)
I can stretchthe deadline if needed this is a biggie
mY FINAL ON PAGE 1.

[DAN]- awesome work! beautiful rendering. I really like the climat.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge..."
edujante, I'm beginning to enjoy the continuing adventures of Ricky. Very nice panoramic style. I love the jumble of architecture. Thanks for the comments as well!
Gaius, nice context and great composition... especially like the crows...
Crazy..., you've managed to dig out a unique take on the subject, and an imaginative backstory to boot.
Lots of WIPs that need finishing...
If you were to extend the deadline, when would the new deadline be? I got mine about halfway done, and then my computer started having some issues.
I'll give you tomorrow...(wednesday) I have to drive all day anyway... so figure I'll close it thursday morning
I'm afraid that there's no way I can finish what I started; things at work have gone from busy to omgwe'reallgoingtodie over the last few days. Sigh.
Corrick! i appreciate very much your repplie! Ricky appreciate also your comment!
Well, it looks like Dan won, lol.
J/K, lotsa great entries guys, keep em comin'
This is really my first time sitting down and trying to do an environment. I want to gain more experience with them. I also want to learn some painting techniques so that I can get faster. With that preface, I present:
EOW#67 Center of the Labyrinth FINAL
The darkened forest was a blight upon the land, twisted beyond recognition, only the darkest of creatures dwelling in it. Generations had watched it spread through healthy lands, claiming them for some dark need. Priests and adventures alike ventured into the depths, only a scarce few returning. Their babbling madness told of a labyrinth at the center, its walls like spongy flesh, its shape a cavorting madhouse of otherworldly geometries. Sinister was this labyrinth, and most sinister of all was the solid obsidian gate looming in the center.
Adventurers still quested through the forest, and still died for their folly. Whispers soon moved amongst the dark mages, tales of power awaiting those strong enough to unlock the door. Wizened old arcanists and young bright novices made the trek, and most joined the demented denizens of the forest. Only one stunning prodigy had the strength of will to maintain his sanity and find the obsidian gate in the center.
But was he strong enough to face what lay on the other side? The world of chaos that had spawned the labyrinth in the first place was all too eager to claim another delicious soul.
Gaius, THAT IS ABSLOUTELY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I HAVE SEEN IN MONTHS! The mood, the archaic (did I spell it right) feel to it, the contrast (orange-blue, my favourite!:X)... the gamma... the idea... SUPPERB! <<Takes off hat and bows>>
DAN........How dare you be only a level one...
Your work is RIDICULOUS!!!!! Love it, keep it up
Gaius I personally like yours the most,
though it does seem to be slightly influenced by
"Altair of Assassins Creed(view below)"....but I'm probably wrong.
Looks great though.
NOT A EOW PIC ABOVE!!!!!!!! READ BEFORE CRITISIZING!!!!
Congrats [DAN] and Gaius, stellar work. Let's get this sucker to the poll and get it over with, next topic!

[Dan] : awesome work very humbling.
Corrick: Really cool, I am very impressed by the reflections on the floor,very impressive.

" Where for art thou Chaos, Queen of EOW...."

Final EOW- Center of the Labyrinth- A.J. Casperite
On this fiery world you must race as quickly as you can through the labyrinth of walkways and shafts up to the top of the ancient tower to the portal that will carry you to the next world and an uncertain fate.
My attempt at this EOW.
A_J_Casperite, just in time. Glad you and your fantastic style made it in this round! I dug your work on the Swamp, nice to see it continuing here. Cheers!
Chaos, I'm just chomping at the bit is all...
