EOW#70 The Inferno POLL
The winner of the EOW#69 Milliways restaurant at the end of the Universe is Gaius…. Wish I had a prize to award…gaius is becoming a Champion
For this Challenge we Had 38 images started, 34 going to poll. D Several first time entries, WELCOME! several returning past winners. WOOT
And two that nearly got rejected because they made several entries on several posts… (cough edujante, nram, cough ) make my life easy please peoples.
3people did not outside host their image They will not got to poll. Sorry to be a hardass about this but with 38 entries I can’t be bothered to rehost your image because you didn’t read the much repeated directions.
One was unfinished
Lots of beautiful work and a great round
New Round IS ON!
EOW# 71 City of Artists
"It appeared half burnt-up-charcoal, half metal-soup. Engine still blazing hot from years of operation, this monsterous vessel had plowed through half the city leaving an inferno in it's wake. The combined heat of the entry and the crash was slowly melting the underside. With such a large part of the city now in flames rescuing the crew seemed unimportant to most, even if they had survived."
Ok, here's my take on the subject. I was thinking of doing a sort of video game environment. This scene would be when the hero is about to go through the gates of Hell to battle Satan. Before he enters, the gates close, and the hero has to battle a couple of giant skeletons that reanimate from their chained state. As soon as he or she defeats the skeletons, the gates open and he enters another level.
Madkweer artist _Attached Image, welcome to EOW. Nice try but the images needed more time and attention, as well as an outside host
Now approaching Geo -con mining facility also know as the inferno.
Not very original, but Dante inspired me :
"Through me the way is to the city dolent;
Through me the way is to eternal dole;
Through me the way among the people lost.
All hope abandon, ye who enter in!"
Attached..too bad it’s a nice image
I almost didn’t take this to poll, because you said it’s a speedie and didn’t mark it final. I do blame you…
The older ones always knew. Makai'li would get louder, and begin to argue with everyone. Sam'pai was the same, only he would take a swing at the children with his old walking stick. Sooner or later someone would be sent into the mountain, and sure enough, the Inside Earth would show its light through the cracks, and a strong hunting party would go to the middle of the island. The Great Wheel would turn, and the Waters would fill the cavern with steam, and the elders would be at peace again.
Description: Obviously one of Krieg's goons had gotten there before me. There would be no time to look for the files if I wanted to keep breathing. I got low to the floor and started crawling the hell out of there.
Digitally Dumbfounded –Attached image too bad I kinda like it
Inferno Used Auto Sales: We're burning up the competition!
In the deepest pit by fires as hot as the sun lies his temple.
I imagined a world of fire and how it would look, and what could happen in there. So here's a fireproof pirate with a burning sword fighting the FlameTiger

Particularly like the ones from Han and JessiBean.
I also went to the wolfje sketchbook and that really made me cheer up! So cute.
Uhm, I assume I screwed up outside hosting .
Though I did put my picture on photobucket and the uploaded from direct link, but I suppose that just uploads from there to here and .. isnt`t outside hosting.
Sorry to ask stupid questions, ... but how do I do this correctly?
Meh, I really would have loved to participate, .. even without a chance to win.
Ooo, lots of good stuff. That's a tough one. ConceptBloke's piece got my vote - closely followed by jfwalls' and JessiBean's.
dear Mr dumb founded
is the link I need
to post the image so that it shows up
in your link it looks like you used the attachment manager.
pm me next round if you still have trouble I'll try to walk you through it
I get the mistake now!
I need to past the link in the message directly.
Oh, and I'm a girl .
It was really hard to find my favorite one this time. Finally i voted for Hallo. It looks really cool and this is a really unique style.
But there are more than 7 second places for me
everyone is a guy until they say otherwise
do you have grlforum access?
jfwalls got my vote for incrediblde painting of light and a real feeling of heat.
Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.
my vote went to Corrick. again his image sucked my eyes outa my head
although Hyver you would have got my vote had your image given off a little more heat...it is very red but doesnt feel glowing hot to me.
great entries all round tho, and so many! well done all. im still so gutted i didnt have time!
my vote went to Edujante altough it was a very hard choise... so many good works wish i could vote more than once... so many great entries...
Sorry for the double post chaosrocks, and thanks for including me in the final poll. wont happen again... i think hehe
So many good entries this round! Nearly voted for csoldier7 for the fire alone but my vote went to Edujante-I think his entry captured the mood of the book more so than the rest. Also liked Mitze, Dabble, Thalion, Jfwalls....
Hopefully I'll have time to participate in the next one!
Corrick got my vote. Great composition and the grand architecture feel reminded me of Tinfoil's work. Great job!
Edujante, has my vote this round. nice sense of design and i like the feeling of doom surrounding the img. aweomse use of values too to draw the eye right to the center of focus. sneaky use of the eow title too. only crit is i would've like to see other colors =D
RogerAdams, nice usage of colors/texture to show depth. the mix of cool and warm is very nicely done and pleasant to look at.
Gaius, u did it again this round! LOL man i dig your stuff. the painting says inferno but seeing this is an environment of the week and your image focused more on the 2 humans/subjects, i had to give my vote to Edujante instead. ^^; but frackin awesome work.
JessiBean, original. =D you are probably the only one who was really thinking outside the box this round. gave me a good chuckle.
Thalion, epic, looks like a movie poster! i like the overall image and the description/text adds a lot. nice work!
Corrick, great use of shapes, and POV. the little bit of the forest/sky showing int he back there really adds a lot. nice values too. always interested to see what u come up with.
Hyver, i commented on your pic previously already. really dig it. almost had my vote this round.
hats off to everyone else. sorry if i didn't get around to comment on everyone's. this round had a huge turnout!
Im sorry yeah really it is. I mean I could. but do you have any idea how inportant it is in the art world it is to follow format instructions?...and what a Pain in the ass. it woul dbe at this point?
you won't make that mistake again. It's a sweet piece though. And I will leave it in this thread for folks to see adn comment on if they choose.
try again..you have potential
I voted for Void but I was also leaning alot towards Hyver's. Alot of really good entries, and if I had something new to say about them I would, so I'll just say nice job everyone. I really enjoyed this one.
Wow so many cool Entries. First of all big thanks Chaos for setting up the poll, must have been quite tedious.
Ok many apologies for anyone I dont mention but there is just too many this round.
Hyver Nice work but a little flat , maybe push the contrasts a little to seperate the background, mid ground and foreground.
ConceptBloke Fiery, nice speed paint, love the leaf brush! lol just kidding.
Corrick Brillant image as always. Would have gotten my vote if it hadnt been for your lava, lava is sort of gloopy and yours is bit too watery. Also in your image it seems too cool compared to the cast light on the face.* which is brillant btw*It isnt strong enough as the light source.The cool section of the forest through the gap is inspired.
Special mention to Hallo, jessiebean, RogerAdams,Edujante, deadred
really enjoyed studying your images .
Ok Finally Yanimator got my vote. Lovely dynamic image. Indiana jones, adventure inspired , I am sucker for anything cinematic.
Though I dont like the rope bridge its scale bugs me. I think its because the sense of depth in the image isnt consistant , what I mean is that the rock stucture on the sides could be brought forward into the foreground more and that would help with the scale of the bridge, then that frames the middle ground and the aircraft. The arches in the middle are brillant btw.
Wolfje brillant, your sketchbook rocks too.

I'll be damned I'd have voted for at least 5 entries if I could.
Edujante, yours was my fav, the mood, the design, the light...
Yanimator : Great use of colors and light.
Deadred : Fine piece, love the backgound.
Dabble : Very heroic pic, I really like the Head/Gate design.
Han : I just think the white "sky" drew too much attention and harms the reading of your pic.
Great job everyone, I wish I had more time to paint. The topic was really cool.
___________Here to mess with the best.Throw crits please.
Jelly Tots x 1,000,000
I VE had doubts to make my decisions...
I vote Yanimator, like very much compo and colour!
I ll like to spend more time drawing the hell, but what the hell, next time.(uauh ive done a joke in english...)
Thanks of course for the crits!
Diphalia: heres the high res. link!!
Gaius, no worries, it is indeed water, but you'd be absolutely correct if it wasn't... no one wants thin lava. I debated on what would come out of the mouth and went a different direction.
I'm still vacillating on my vote, too many amazing entries. Little disappointed that Nightblue didn't make it, I was an admirer... look forward to the next round, anyway. I'll post up when I get a chance.
This vote was a lot harder than i thought.
Gaius,Yanimator,JessiBean,Hyver all could get the vote and close by are Edujante,Peetsbeets etc i stop now or i will just be copying and pasting all the names. I went for Yanimator in the end i just tried to think inferno and look at my 4 fav and see which seemed nearest to inferno.
Love the flames JessiBean
