Posted Sep 13, 3:00 am EST


Welcome to the cgtalk sketch group.

We will try to post one of these topics once a day for your enjoyment.

These are the rules:
* Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
* 640 x 480 / 480 x 640 OR 800 x 600 /600 x 800
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
* Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
* The topics will be picked at random from the list on this thread
(The author will be given credit). So guys keep them coming.
*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!
* Ill post ANOTHER thread to quantify and track WHO has participated the most on these threads.


Good luck

We should lure some gueststars into here for the 100th....that's very cool! I think I'm only with you for the last like 10 or 20 or so....but somehow I can imagine how we will celebrate many more hundrets in the futur.....but I guess the next one will be sketch: 365!

Let's see about this topic...eh....

1 hour and 20 minutes. Photoshop and mouse... I was going to put up posters of naked CG ladies(which would probably be more accurate).... but my boss keeps hovering over my desk and I dont think he would like it if he saw nakedness on the computers. :argh: http://pages.ivillage.com/cgsketch//inside-cgtalkcentral.jpg

Lol... Ac0rN (member.php?u=9985), I laughed at your picture while it was loading.

sagi_13: Good job. Though I'm not sure I would be able to use that mouse... it's a little flat =p.

I really like it, Andrewley. For some reason it makes me think of the movie Treasure Planet (which, at least to me, is a good thing).

:thumbsup:

I hope we have alot of people sketch this time. People have been dropping like flies - but... we've been getting new people also, so that's great.

thanks, I havent used photoshop in ages.. and havent been doing much really, I just now am getting back on track. :) So I added some fatness to the mouse :)... oh and the screen, well that is a flat screen of course.

andrewley - nice city.
Ac0rN- very funny.

A work I'm actually most proud of; many times tempted by alternate activities but not this night. No, this night I have conquered my urges for procrastination...hahahah....3 hours PS.

The way I see it, we never could have gotten this far without robots, monkeys and our fearless leader, Roberto.

a view inside cgtalk central......station!
http://www.pixelsbyzem.com/images/cgtalkcentral.jpg

Didn't have any references for the avatars, so some look a bit crappy. I thought of this as a trainstation or an airport where avatars and the pictures they make meet and mingle.

1.5-2 hours, Photoshop and Wacom

zem: i love that concept ... its very creative
sixfootcow: i was gonna do something like that but you beat me to it. My current idea is not that far though
dargon: what can i say? i love it
drumwhore: as always... exellent colors and light. you should pm me a tut on how u do it. i have to make a sketch of the sketch just to figure out lighting and still comes out wrong i think
andrewley: dude i like your style. A+ stroke

I just started mine. I'll post it in about an hour or so. Hope it comes out right. In my head it looks nice but there is some sort of problem when the idea is traveling from my head to the paper.:shrug:

____________________
EDIT:
Well here it is... PS/wacom 2h30... took an extra hour to sketch a sketch for the sketch lol so its actuall about 3 hours and a half. Experimenting with painting techniques please comment and critique would be great.

3h/openCanvas1.1/no reference
I'm feeling a little bit silly to mention the "no reference", because I don't quite know whether this is obvious or not, but the more I look at it, the more I'm proud and kind of amazed that I could do something of this type out of my head...it's a strange feeling.
I just remember the times, when I looked at some CGpaintings in such awe until I found out that they were merely well made copies of a photo or worse other paintings. So for all those of you, who are still in the early stages of learning, I want to let you know that it is not only possible to get quite imaginable scenarios without any reference, but it's not even so hard once you develope some fun in persueing the light within your imaginary scene.

Forgive me if the Gameboy isnt entirely correct, I did it by heart.

Nice one Taron333. Great Lighting, I like the little particles in the light. What's in all those boxes?

Hehe, thanx guys! Well, in those boxes is more gear to keep up with the insane overload we're pumping into CGtalk...but they're also good as chairs and tables...no problem! ;)

Thanx again!

Question: I know that everyone's monitor settings are different and all but is there at least an average that artists use so that you can see compositions in the same light as they were made? I've noticed that mine look dark when I'm on my computer at work.

Supervlieg - excellent memory, I had on and played it all the time; blocked from memory for me.
Kael - much more colorful than mine, awesome.
Zem - excellent idea!

Question: I know that everyone's monitor settings are different and all but is there at least an average that artists use so that you can see compositions in the same light as they were made? I've noticed that mine look dark when I'm on my computer at work.

I believe that a majority of the artists are as lazy as I am and stick with the defaults on the video-card. The monitor is usually eye-calibrated to show as bright of a white while having as dark of a black. This is certainly not valid for any serious color-calibrating in field of video or film, but in terms of true to the pixel it does a great job. So that's my rule of thumb. But my monitor is now so old already and not bright anymore, it's really a drag. I have no clue what my things look like anywhere else. Probably pretty contrasty...hehehe....

Good luck with finding out and share it with us, if you run into any other revelation!

I hereforth declare a global standard of video calibration; use of a light meter is required as is settings of contrast 85 / brightness 96, r253/b180/g210. Or you can just play with your settings on every graphic...yes, yes...good idea.
Taron, your graphics are always lookin good :thumbsup:.

andrewley>> Nicely done! I love those futuristic cities.

AcOrN>> I love characters like that. Any chance of some color?

sagi_13>>Glad you decided to put some nekkidness on that. Nice perspective:)

Dargon>>Sweet. Took me a while to get the joke. Sphere-primitive. That is accually how it looked in class when I studied 3D at Uni.

Drumwhore>> Omg.

drawMonger>>Love the black and white

SixFootCow>>Yeah! I always knew there where some dark druids running the show. Love the details. Thanks for the comment!

Tempest811>> Cool baby

Ilikespoup>> Cool idea, but I didn't recieve my piece of cake....

Kael>> Thanks! Your painting is amazing. Comic feeling. Love the cable thingy that goes outside the frame.

Taron333>> Great as always. Good work with the light.

Supervlieg>>30 minutes!? Would have taken me several hours, and I still wouldn't have gotten the lighting right. Great.

Hope I didn't miss anyone. Kinda rush wrote this...

just a quick one, I dont like the result at all but I'll post it anyway:


Rat 1: - Can you imagine what will happen if they discover that WE are the ones that really control CGTalk?
Rat 2: - They will (he-he) never know...

I've just thought that it would've been much better with monkeys...:D
