SAVE YOUR FILES IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT. EOW##_Nickname
PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
example from CHOW
(you can add CA logo, etc).
Add an icon to you final post
150 pixels either direction
PLEASE OUTSIDE HOST THE ICON
k thxAn outside host means exactly that - an image host that's not Conceptart.org. Instead of adding the thumbnail with the attachment manager you have to host it on another site (your private domain, photobucket, (both recommended) or imageshack for instance).
The full image gets added with the attachment manager, however.
After you uploaded the thumbnail somewhere, you simply add the [IMG] [/IMG] around it and you're doneeow
wow 200+ people have looked at it and no one wnats to be all atmospereic with steam adn shiny with bronze... I'm sad
maybe i do something xD i have a lot of contests to do
does it needs to be strictly victorian in the details? or we can borrow from styles alike
Nice topic! I wish I had time to join in but I'll be away. I look forward to seeing everyone's entry!
noche, look up steam punk..... the style is the definition. you can place it at any place or time.... but the aesthetic has to be steamppunk...
matt kohr: that looks awesome. Lovely stuff indeed!
I really hope I get time to join in, it has been so long and I have missed EOW's in my schedule!
Cool idea, I'll see if I can give this a whirl
@matt kohr good stuff champ, thats looking great.
Okay, here is the very basic layout though I will try to embellish as I go along. I have not put people in yet but I will.
i like cheese and this eow
Here is my concept, this is the second time I have drawn with a wacom.
BTW - Background is at 50% opacity so you can see the train drawing.
Next stage for me. Getting there slowly but surely.
I did some re-modeling of the woman in the foreground and started laying in colour. Still a lot to do but I am having fun which is always good.
O_O nice work guys
I might make some changes toward the end, (after some time away from it) but I think for now, this is done.
looking good every one!
having a hard time with this one... maybe I will finish it in time, maybe not.
zimfin: the stair is looking a little bit like a ramp (firstthing I noticed) the rest of the painting looks awesome!
Ill have to agree. My biggest gripe with the stairs is that, in real life, there is randomness in things like this. Stairs are not perfectly kept, straight pattern and without any cracks or imperfections. Try adding some dirt or randomness to the stairs.
Also, I don't know how this would screw with your layers, but the architecture for the ceiling in the BG looks too plain. It looks like it's metal, so maybe if there were some reflective parts to it. It might also be cool if you made some of the sections of the ceiling stained glass.
Thanks Mubanga and thescala! You are right about the stairs and bg.
I need to work on them. Originally you were supposed to be able to see through the steps and that dark diagonal area behind the robot was supposed to be the bottom of the landing. I then realized that this did not work in perspective with the people on it so I thought it could be used as a shadow instead. Unfortunately that is adding to the ramp effect. I will work on it and probably try the stained window idea. Nice one!

Awesome work here. I love this topic.
Only have time to make a sketch but I´ll try to work it out in photoshop... I hope i´ll finish on time.
Please comment me if you like the idea. Streching the scale.
Everybody thank you for the atmosphere, you can smell the steam and the coal burning.
Good to see you on track. I hope you are fine.
Awesome. Wonderful mood and rendering.
I like your picture. Very fine details. The light is coming fine. Feels harmonic. Only crit is the ellipses on the train and headlight.
Wonderful sketch. I like the stem technology mixed with the futuristic big scale tech. Its not only railway station with stem trains, Its a steampunk train station
You got the light playing in the stem very good. Perhaps dampen the bridge over the track. To get it more in the distance.
Good start. Be careful to have the ellipsis right on the wheels.
I like the forms. Looking forward to see more.
