I saw on another sketch site they did a tarot series, and if I'm not mistaken, took the best ones to actually make a tarot deck.

So it's my suggestion to make a series of all the tarot titles, so we could collect all the best ones for a tarot deck.

We could also do this for a standard card deck! Topics like "the Queen of Hearts" or the "2 of Diamonds" could offer up some interesting paintings.

Perhaps a template that we could paint in, so that the number part of the card is always the same when we put together the deck.

I personally think it would be awesome.

Hey we already did Tarot... clicky (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=210434)
Fun idea tho.

That thread is cool, a lot of great stuff in it, including a link to the originators I was thinking of. linky (http://tarot.eatpoo.com/wands.htm)

I was thinking more along the lines of subjects being "3 of Wands" or "The Empress", once a week, finally culminating in a full tarot deck, that we could print out to use.

I think it would be really cool, if someone created a little template for them too, so they had similar text, and fit together really well. I'd say just a black and white outline, like a colouring book, that one could "colour", or just paint over. It would make for a lot of fun.

My suggestion would be just once a week though, so that we could have plenty of normal topics too.

Superhero Re-Designs!

In regards to this wonky version of Superman (http://www.supermanhomepage.com/images/superman-returns1/superman-costume2.jpg) that's floating about. I thought it'd be cool to see other people take a crack at re-designing popular super-heroes.

A few recent and up-coming movie supers:

Superman
Batman
Hulk
Spiderman
Wolverine
Punisher
Daredevil
Electra
Incredibles
Fantastic Four
Dr. Doom
etc.

Beetlejuice

I'll Spread My Wings...

Our Pets!

And an idea for a new type of daily sketch thing: Illustration. You paint a picture inspired by whatever the topic is, and then write a short story to go along with it. Say the topic is "Broken Hearts", then each person would paint a picture like usual, but then have to write a short story to go along with it. Just an idea though. :)

I must admit, I'm confused as all hell when I come to the sketch of the day/week forum. I honestly don't understand what it is or how it works. Where the skecthes come from, obviously artists, but are they posting in a specific forum, thread or do you just pull them from any part of the CG talk website?? Not to insight flames here but it just seems like a mess with no information. I think you could clean the thread up a bit and add some info for people who come here for the first time, so that they understand what's going on.

Every day Roberto (forum moderator) picks one of them (or he's own idea) and make's a new thread with that subject it in the CGTalk Daily Sketch Forum. This will be the topic of what the artist's will draw. Voting happens 7 days after every full weak. Basically there's one weak with sketches before one can vote for the sketches that were before that weak. Hope I made myself clear. :/

While we wait for the movie to come to us, I would suggest this title.

Thanks Lystmaler. Sorry I don't mean to tell people how to run this thread, especially since I've never participated. You've obviously got a system that works. It's just that it's can be confusing for people coming here for the first time.

One suggestion, a sticky thread with the rules and info at the very top of the Daily Sketch section may be a good idea.

At the moment you've got the Comix Strip Thread, but I don't understand how that relates to sketch of the day. I did eventually find the rules in the footer of Rob's post, easy to miss becuase it looks like part of a giant signature, if you get what I mean.

Anyway I realise now that this is the wrong type of suggestion for the suggestion thread.

Roberto will have to take this ting futhurer, but I must say that you got some points.

The comic thead got the same concept as the Daily Sketch Group, but you got 1 month to make you'r "Sketch" instead of one day or week, so that's what it does here.

While I agree with you wholeheartedly about the issue of cultural/cult topics being an exclusion point for people unaware of said topic, I guess it may also be said that many of these are regarded as "classics" of their time, so therefore afford a lot of inspiration (like Frankenstein, for example). I'm not a huge fan of Star Trek myself (although Patrick Stewart kicks many points of ass), but I can still have fun just sketching something pleasant.
Why not just sketch you misunderstanding/hatred of the topic? A good way to vent and it's constructive! :)

Caricatures are always fun and if people posted their photos for anyone else to caricature it would make the whole thing more personal.

Besides who doesn't love having their imperfections exaggerated and laughed at ?

Here I'm allowed, everything all of the time (Radiohead)
I wish simplicity (Björk)
All the monkeys aren't in the zoo (Frank Sinatra)
Nothing is wasted, only reproduced (Blur)
I just want to dance the night away (Barry White)
It's getting dark, too dark to see (Bob Dylan)
Sounds of laughter every where (Harry Belafonte)
There’s nobody out there (Red Hot Chilli Peppers)
Please release me and let me dream of... (Faithless)
... the stupid things you bought with my credit card (Suede)

I am new here. Just been getting back into drawing. But I have always wanted a couple of suggestions for drawing and here they are. The first one I use allot, the second is just funny to see what people can come up with.

1 - Go outside and look at the clouds - draw the first thing you see that resembles something.

2- I cut the cheese

I hope that soon I will be more a participant, than a viewer/lurker.

Batman vs. Darth Vader

I know you would just love to see these guys duke it out. Think about it: Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, is a genius with ninja-like abilities and virtually unlimited financial resources. Plus, he has bat ear things on his mask! This guy, from what I've heard, beat Superman at one point. :D

Darth Vader, the eeevil Sith lord is reasonably intelligent but definitely has unlimited resources along with his Force powers and skills with a lightsaber. He also has millions (or even billions!) of evil goons he can call upon at a moment's notice.

Who wins? You decide!

A two-part (possibly two-thread) idea:

Part I - Something simple: Create a sketch of an object that you like to draw/paint. Emphasis on simplicity and speed. Try not to take over an hour.

Part II - Conglomeration: Based on the entries in part I, take as many of them as you want and conglomerate them into a collage or arrangement or something. Fun!

When I took an art class back in high school we did this little project where we took a photo, broke it down into grid units, and had each person in the class do their imitation of one specific block on the grid. After everyone had finished their grid block we combined the full set in proper order to reproduce the initial image--in varied styles/techniques. I think it would be a lot of fun if we could put something like that together here, granted it would have to be carefully organized so everyone gets their own spot and we don't end up with 'competing' images. Also, the way we went about it, which makes it more fun imo, was to distribute each grid unit to a person to copy before anyone sees the full and final image.

Here's an example of how it might work:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v169/fiyog/dempsey.jpg

and the single grid unit per person like so:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v169/fiyog/sun-004.jpg

If I can help this along in any way let me know. :) (btw, the above is a personal photo, so it's free to use for this, though it's not ideal since it has a lot of boring areas)

As much as I'd love to keep pushing my collaborative painting idea, I have to admit it isn't very practical as a regular DSG topic. Maybe I'll start a separate thread (here or in the parent WIP forum) and try to draw some interest when I get a better photo for it.

Anyhow, I really started this post to make some more topic suggestions.
-Light vs. Dark
-Demon vs. Angel
-Heaven vs. Hell
And of course:
-Good vs. Evil

They are just too historically repetitive and interesting for me to pass up. :D

-- Choose a modern product (i.e Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Nokia, etc) and produce an advertisement for it in the style of one of your favorite Old Masters.

like for example the ellipse of a mug drawn with bad perspective so that it appears to be pointed instead of rounded.. and so on..
