Hey, there's nothing wrong with hamsters! I think hamsters are really underapreciated in general.

Hi! :) Here's mine.. I think it's scary hahaha *hides* I used a reference for hamster.. but i changed the light DRAMATICALLY and changed hamster pretty much too to make it look scary. :)

Photoshop CS w/ tablet... 1 hour and around 15 min. Edited/updated: Added other 15 min to this... so it doesnt look as plain as it was.

Enjoy! ;) (I think it's the best sketch I ever did... you think?)

I don't know if I'll get time to sketch today, besides don't know that I could top any of the other sketches today. Awesome everyone!

J_Grieve - LOVE it!! (why do I hear the Mission Impossible music?)
zeroeefx - great job, but not sure what it is they are attacking
andrewley - love the twist on the topic
unlikelycorney - that is definately ONE solution!! :)

Hehe aww thanks! :D Glad to hear that compliment!

DreamMaster: i love the fur and the lighting around the eyes. excellent job.
Hehe thanks! >:D

======

J_Grieve: That definitely reminds me of Mission Impossible! Hehe very original!
zeroeefx: Are Hamsters attacking the fishes? Anyways, good colors! :D
andrewley: A different approach to the topic! Good job on that idea! Cute hamster btw!^_^
UnlikelyCorny: That's a bit... gross! Hahaha... but hey it can be that! ^_^ A motto for you, "A good way to get rid of all annoying & attacking hamsters is... just step on them!" Hehe
Octothreat: Can't figure out what's going on there... rest is way too blurry. Only after looking hard enough I'm able to tell that this person is a humanoid hamster. What happened there? Did someone stab that hamster with a flag?
To Everybody Else: Post yours! ;) hehe

~edited version~
Since many could not believe that this mutated vicious rodent could possibly be a hamster...
I met with photoshop for 2more minutes to put the eye more where it goes.

Like pretty much everyone puts up a kick-ass sketch...HAHAHAHA....like some of you have just WAITED for that topic...hihihihi..shiiiiiit....ok.....well...let's see....gotta think of something.

Congratulations everyone! Really funny stuff and good looking, too! :thumbsup:

Flash, 2 hrs

It's based on the Call of Duty: United Offense box cover - I did this as a parody of wwII style combat, with hamsters.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v74/gsg9dragon/hamstar.jpg


I'm not sure whether this is considered plagiarized or a 'tribute' - if it is, please take it down, mods. Sorry if it is an inconveniance.

other wise - this is some really creative work!
J_Grieve (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=86459) - I love your concepts and designs - works well with the hamsters too.
zeroeefx (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=5883) - very funny.
andrewley (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=42606) - truely imaginative. looks very french for a reason.
Ilikesoup (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=82834) - very cool, might look a bit better with some sort of campy backround. They also look slightly like badgers.


Everyone else, amazing work.

this one took way longer than it should have.. about 3 hours total. i roughed out a sketch with a ballpont pen while i was out bowling earlier (on green paper - the back of a league signup sheet actually). scanned it into my computer, cleaned up the scan (part of the print on the reverse side came through). then got it into alias sketchbook pro to airbrush. turned out pretty decent, although i lost alot of detail when resizing it for the forum post. ah well.. great entries so far by the way :thumbsup:

3 hours, alias sketchbook pro, wacom intuos³

Are you german Taron? Because I dont know if this saying is known anywhere outside of Germany as well???

Really great sketch, it did take some time for me to understand it ;)

Really great sketch, it did take some time for me to understand it ;) Hey, I'm from Germany but I know this one is also known elsewhere. If someone tells you about a real stupid, boring or ridiculous event and you'd like to throw some comment to this you might say "Yeah, and yesterday a rice bag fell over in China". Explanation: There are Billions of rice bags in China and not even John Wayne cares if one of them does anything else than store food. (Sorry, that John Wayne thing was a german one, I think... whatever, "a ricebag fell over in china" means no one cares cause its either boring or it happens all the time and is nothing special).

Still some real funny sketches here, like all of them (especially Cyanids, somewhat reminds me of the dwarfen Warrior - Warcraft III)

Definately not a known saying here in Texas! I think if someone states something really obvious, we just say something like, "DUH Bubba, tell me sumpin' I DON'T know!" :-P

I know, I know, a bit late, but I wasn't really even on line much in the last couple days, and then I saw this, and immediately this sprang to mind, had to do it.

09-20-2004, 04:18 PM
Thanks immerzeelpictures. I dont really have one technique. Usually just outlines which are filled up afterwards with coloring and a lighting layer. When the coloring is good enough the lines are erased, sometimes I like to keep them in. Ill post the .wpe of this one when I get home.

Edit: here's the .wpe file for those interested. (zipped, about half a megabyte) (http://www.bolman.nl/0105.zip)
