I had a lot of fun joining in here this week and thanks for the warm welcome, also thanks again for all the nice comments. :)

Someone asked about a tutorial, no I don't have any.

Mine is just silly and when I saw that new frontier text the only thing I could think of was Star Trek, I really loved that original series.

20 minutes, photoshop and yea tricks. :)

Sagi, that's no way for a pirate to talk. You're breaking your own cardinal rule -- don't call your own work crap. I'll save you the "art is a personal journey" lecture. Enjoy your weekend. :bounce:

My noob motto: When starting a new activity for the first time, my goal is to be the second worst person involved. When I've accomplished that, I set the bar a little higher. ;)

"But I have seen,
Pointing her shapely shadows from the dawn
And image tumbed on a rose-swept bay,
A drowsy ship of some yet older day;"

- James Elroy Flecker

Many elves were lost at the end of the second and third age against the forces of Mordor. What once was livliehood and joy is now all but escaped them, or so it seemed. The first ships to reach the Undying Lands however renewed these hopes and thus was the beginning of a new age for the last race of elf.. ;)

came to me as I started lsitenign to the FotR soundtrack

I'll pitch something in here. Shamefully this has taken me an hour already. I know, I'm slow. First quick on paper, then color in Photoshop. I would go further but I am being summoned to watch European Cup football (soccer.)

My last entry really sucked so I decided to amp it up a bit.

I have always been facinated with the oceans deepest spots. and always wondered what would be lying on the bottom waiting to be discovered.

Photoshop and a mouse. 1.5 hours. (I had a heck of a time getting the atmosphere I wanted.)

Keep the sketch coming.

Alright. Finally managed to get on top of things and now I hope to be in here close to everyday, improving my drawing skills :) Sorta distressed that two topics I suggested had already been used, and I wasnt even around to draw anything :hmm:

Anyway.. heres my sketch.. Combination of Pencil and Ink (a rough/quicker version of the style I have adopted in drawing) .. took 1 hour and 30 minuites. I normally would have inked in the entire image, but the idea was portrayed well enough with half still in pencil. Besides.. my current pens are almost outta ink and I still need some left for writing tonight :p
And just incase somebody can't see it.. its a fly, about to go exploring in somebodies nose while they sleep.

Hi:

"6.000 ft beyond man and time"

http://www.sirpatroclo.virtuabyte.cl/nietzsche.jpg

1 hour 15 minutes , Photoshop and a Wacom

pasto- amazing, simple, great lighting and color (I thought of the first scenes of My Neighbour Totoro)

bumskee- great contrast of colors, that blue in the shadow constructs the whole pic, good composition

****************
What I intended to do:

http://www.sirpatroclo.virtuabyte.cl/depictnietzsche.jpg

- The red arrows show the desired path for the viewer to follow, first stopping at the eyes, then redirecting towards the nothingness beyond [now that I think, he's pointing at my avatar :D ]. I'm afraid that instead of getting that effect I just got the two points to compete against each other...

- The mountains and first row of clouds are framing the nothingness to accent it as a element of the composition, not just an empty space.

- The colors and shapes try to say "it's a happy day to go beyond good and evil" or "go beyond man and become a superman" [or "look, I can see your house from here!"]. Just to contrast nihilism with happy pop.

- Can anyone advice me about what to do to avoid those shaky lines when drawin with a Wacom??

Great work everyone!

Cheers

Sir Patroclo

Hi Sir Patroclo, thanx for comment, your character looks like the philosopher Nietszche.

Sir Patroclo

1 - The mountains are high chroma and move the eyes to the left inthe beginning a bit, not s much, to start of f the at the bottom with your first arrow, it has to be brighter (depth?) or a hand there, something not roughly in the same color family as you have, maybe a fist to signfiy a kind of urgency that gives charcter to your drawing

2 - your space handlign is well i dotn think thats a problem

3 - neat (: very well thought might need to bring out such thought though, as deep complex themes usually (unless you're a great artist o_O) require deep complex drawings :Z

4 - practice lol

awesome stuff m8!
