I just got this tablet for 20 bucks at ebay. Never was a painter and I think I never will be. But I had to give it a try. So here is my version of a man eater.

Im very happy to see that this has started up at cgtalk, and there has been great work the past couple of days. I do intend to participate with more thought out pieces, I just had to throw this up because im sure it hits close to home for many of you.

This forum is a great idea.

i like to see the different takes people get from the theme. and some of you folks can really draw (you know who you are :D )

Supervlieg and aminator: for some reason both of yours seem kind of funny/cuddly. i think animator's has such big feet, he seems sort of puppy-like to me.

Garma: puts me in mind of Dali--i like it.

here's my first submission, with a nod to "Little Shop of Horrors".

Photoshop, 1.5 hours. I hope participating in this forum will improve my speed as well as skills. ;)

This whole concept is breathing some great life into the 2d wip section! Thanks a lot for bringing it to us.

Aminator & Jack_Sparrow - fantastic drawings :)
artemesia66 - First thing I thought of on seeing yours was a deadly toilet ;)

Comments: Well here's my attempt. What ya think? Couldn't be bothered to do the whole thing, but you get the general gist, a mixture between a dragon and that sea monster thingy from "the odyssey" by homer (as if you didn't know)

Thanks for this thread; it's not often that I get a chance to inflict anyone but my wife with my newbie graphics AND strange humor -as a matter of fact my wife thanks you as well in the hopes that I'll now leave her alone. ;)

Anyway what follows took about 15 minutes with pencil and then traced with a pen. I want to try to color this in PSP next as I just got a Wacom -not yet comfortable enough with it.

My personal nightmare -reincarnating as one of the 100,000 or so burgers I've eaten in my lifetime. ;)

Sketch 5mins or so, scanned, then cleaned up & coloured in Photoshop for about 40mins. Found it bit hard to decide where to put colour & where to leave it white, so kept changing my mind, ran out of time. Less is more I guess?

Supervlieg - hehe like the limbs poking out.

aminator - nice, like the pose with the head, it looks pissed off :D

feyshtey - looks cool with the scales and armour, knights arm needs more drama though looks like he wants to shake hands :)

NoPancakeMix - heh well thats just some freaky shit :surprised

jawine - like the idea behind this, so did they order a take-away?

bupaje - hehe like it, maybe try starting by doing a Photoshop fill (set to all layers) with the drawing above (on a multiply layer) & building up the colours below?

Cheers,
Kieron

@Keironh - thanks for the suggestion. Still using PSP, wasn't sure exactly how to translate that but I gave some colors a go anyway. 30 minutes for pencil and ink. 45 minutes to color it and add text in PSP8.

I love the variety of styles I see in this thread, giving me ideas of things to try.

Thanks all! This forum is what my group of friends have been waiting for - we've been doing drawings at lunchtime practically every day this year, and now we have some more inspiration on what to draw daily, and a place to post them, get other peoples' reviews on them. The diversity of the entries is amazing!
SteveV : nice and gestural
Goro : the mood of this piece is awesome! nice colours
subculture : love your design
jack_sparrow : good to see you posting! ;)
Garma : I see the Dali - cool
artemesia66 : sorry, but I see a toilet as well - wouldn't want to sit on that, though (ouch)!
feyshtey : nice concept - like the knight addition (should've put a person under my guy's right foot...ah, the always tomorrow's challenge!)

everyone else - keep posting! I know that drawing every day at lunch with other people has increased my output tenfold, and helped me learn other styles - integrated some of it in my own work - you can only get better doing this!
:thumbsup:

this image has like 0 contrast, i spent way to much time on it and it ended up looking pretty flat sadly.

Good work guys. Interesting how most people, when asked to draw a ManEater, draw either a monster or a woman or some combination of the two.

Hopefully most of you got your fill of drawing teeth and claws today. :applause:

I thought I'd go a different route and simply imply the "man-eating" through the entree. Its like a human Baked Potato or stuffed crab.

Lots of cool stuff here, and I love daily sketch thing. This piece started out as a fairly basic sketch, but turned into a 3 hour painting. I used the Pen tool in Painter 8. There was a conflict between a human kingdom and a few nasty things. The nasty things won. :twisted:
http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/6282/6404maneaters.JPG

If this doesn't fit into the rules, feel free to delete it, I'm not completely clear on what you guys want for a "sketch" as far as style/time.

to give you an impression of what i wanted to do:

it should have been a comic interpretation of something like this ;)
