New to this area.. any suggestions for starting out canvas size for the EoW's? and 150dpi too high? I'd love to give this one a shot.
I just started mine at 900x600 and scaling up as necessary. Not sure where these things should end up size wise though.
Updaaaaaate. More depth in the composition and some more direction etc. This gonna take a while to render and develop but there's time
PT are you using Photoshop or Painter?
Photoshop. I like Painter's natural look but I've gotten so used to Photoshop over the years with it's whole image editing features that I never could be bothered to properly switch

Learning to see
"...the ideas are what matter most" Doug Chiang
Pixeltuner: I like the concept! I'm excited to see it fully fleshed out. Really nice colors going on so far too!
CharlieD: Great start! Maybe you could have some sort of structure in the distance though, to imply a destination. (unless that very faint silhouette in the back is meant as a building, in which case I would make that more evident ).
Another update. I'm trying to improve the depth and the overall grandeur of the scene before I go any further. Maybe I'll make the figures smaller?
l'Aria: Thx And yeah, I would make the figures a hell of a lot smaller to really sell the idea of a grand hall Maybe even as small as the base of the statue on the right.
Here are some thumbs...
1 and 2 are supposed to be a mech training school when an anomaly begins occurring in the sky.
3. Is a group of friends hiking a treacherous mountain.
4 and 6 are pilots of a downed ship discovering huge silos on a foreign planet.
5. When a family gets lost on there family vacation things turn into a nightmare.
7. In the Indus Tribe of warriors when You reach the age of 14 you must cross the desert into the dead city to retrieve an artifact.
8. Colonist on the moon board there ships to a new solar system.
Haven't had much time to work on it, but did some minor updates. Saw l'Aria's last update and thought I could benefit from shrinking the figure in mine as well to help put more emphasis on the tower. (Scale, how does that work?)
decided to try and work up one of my thumbnails further... still veeeery open to change... not sure yet where this one is going... enviros are not my comfort zone

dec 21st should offer a huge array of different ideas. This will be nice to keep coming back to, and doing new locations.
A month is crazy long, it will be cool to see people's progress and thought process through the thread.
this is a quick take. On to the next.
A whole month!, should be able to squeeze somethin out, heres the first one..
Here is my start on my interpretation of this challenge, this is my first challenge so feedback would be much appreciated being it good or bad
So i've decided to try another approach instead of going for a street view, i have an idea of a vast desert with a man upon a cliff looking into the sunset
Changed cliff to desert instead
Quick perspective and environment thumbnails, need to add more depth and detail to a few
