Ps: my dog would like to state that he does not agree with the post I made today. He just wants to make that clear to everybody. As he says: "His nuts go before mine". But I'm not really sure what he means by that.

Thanks for the comments guys

My understanding of the phrase "Every dog has his day" is that even the most unfortunate man gets a break sometime (maybe I'm wrong)

My painting was of a pilot who had just out-manouvered his enemy (small wreckage in the Background) but is on the verge of crashing himself

I was surprised to see so many entries actually about dogs :)

Perhaps my interpretation was well off

Oh well I had a lot of fun painting it :)

Good work everyone

I'm with you on this one - actually a bit dissapointed you got off topic comments, when you're the only one who took it as the saying is meant to be, instead of a literal approach. So far you've got my vote on this one, for best idea, and for best work.

This forum seems to be leaning towards the literal approaches, and cartoony gags lately. Personally I like it a lot better when it's sketches *like ideas* rather than cartoons *like jokes*, even though I'm guilty of it as well.

The shading is great btw, but I think your perspective is a bit off, the angle from wings to fuselage (sp?) doesn't seem like 90 degreees, more like about 85, and the tail seems a slightly different angle than the wings, but all in all, really nice! I think you've gotten the hang of shiny!

Awesome - Cheers Dargon - I needed that! :)

The strange part is...yes, I totally thought that, too, actually, but then I think everyone takes it's more like a charade, you know. What's the game called, where people sketch out some expressions and other have to guess which one....
...so while it is totally right to go for a situation that has the potential to spawns such a line like the topic it is rather difficult to put that into a single image. It would be very hard to make this topic really work in one frame. Anyway....I think also it's kinda cute to go for the dogs...we just went for the hamsters...hehe..well....except me, I guess...heee...

All I'm saying is: You're perfectly right, I'm with you, too, on this one....but I don't care, I loved making the funny doggy, too! :D

Supervlieg
09-20-2004, 10:48 AM
I think the problem with the literal approaches is, that most people who don't have the english language as their native language simply miss out on a deeper meaning because they never heard the saying or dont know any other meaning then the literal one.
I think it's a good idea to put a little explanation with the subject if its a saying or something like that. With the explanation the pic of Andrewley makes a lot more sense, topic wise. Even though it still doesnt seem to be anyones day in that pic ;)

About the cartoony approach, lets not forget that most succesfull cg movies and animated movies use the cartoon approach (pixar, disney, anime), simple because it is often the strongest form when conveying an idea, point or joke in a way that doesnt destract to much by the form used.
In my book cartoony and funny pics are as welcome as the more realistic stuff. I think they have the same right to be here, and I think making people laugh is also a very good way to draw people's attention to a sketch/picture/movie.

Andrewley, how could I forget to comment on your nice sketch?
I like it a lot! Nice metal texture on the craft and great reflection.

Dargon
09-20-2004, 11:00 AM
It's not that I'm against cartoony as a style, in fact I think it totally is cool, but I think since this is a sketch challenge, it should be about the sketching, not the clever little jokes.

I think the clever joke threads are fun, it's just on occasion we have a few in a row, and then even on one like this that could be interpreted in so many ways, everybody seemed to go for the joke.

Dargon
09-20-2004, 11:02 AM
Mine, BTW, I decided to go for non-joke too, non-literal. If every dog has his day, perhaps it's this guys day...

I thought that might be the case.

Personally I like to use these daily sketchs as an oppertunity to learn different techniques and styles. For example this is my first attempt at painting a shiny vehicle without reference.

I totally agree that cartoon entries are just as valid as any other approach.

Thanks for a comments guys, I really appreciate it:) There are some errors I've overlooked yesterday but well... its just simple doodle.

A word about Andrewley's post: when I've read the title in instant I understand it as a joke and nothing more. Supervlieg guess is correct, English is still foregin language for me and I'm not always able to notice a "background story", it is just funny phrase for me and that's why I took it literally. Actually Andrewley's pic(really nice BTW:) looked really oftopic for me, now I see that You have right and I was wrong, I've got the point :)

Taron - nice one!!! :cool:

I like the fact that someone can see something very differently in a common phrase. That is what creativity is al about.

As to sketching on my part. I will try to paint in stead of placing vectors. That is why I am joining the Daily Sketches, to try another medium.

I have ordered a Wacom and Corel Painter, until then you will have to put up with my vector sketches with gradient backgrounds (sorry, I like them).

Thanks guys, you're a great inspiration source.

Yeah, a joke seems like a good way to sell a sketch. Just like fancy coloring and clean line work are. I like it when a sketch has all of the above. :DI agree. To me a sketch is foremost an idea, possibly in an outlined manner, but even then in a very well made outlined manner.
This does not neccesarely mean it has to be a multilayered digital painting, but it does not exclude it either.
Nevertheless every sketch needs a good idea.
To me that is 50% of the job. Then again, that's just me.

I just wanted to add a few comments to the thread here of literal vs deeper meaning. I think the topic's "depth" depends on how the artist interprets it. That IS what makes the DSG so great! My problem is that I have a warped sense of humor and see something funny in most everything, so I tend to go for the humor. I love it when others go for the deeper meaning too. There are many creative brains coming here to post work. The fact that their interpretations differ is what makes it a learning experience. If we all saw everything the same way, it would be boring. It is the beautifully executed pieces that inspire me to practice and get better at my craft. That's why I'm here, to see what others are doing and to be inspired or challenged by them. Also, the discipline of daily sketching is good. It stretches the artistic mind muscles.

I say, everyone keep up the fantastic work - and those of you great ones, keep on making me humble!!

Kudos and Cheers to all of you!:buttrock:

I like what you are saying there, UnlikelyCorny. Most of the posts here are not "sketches" in the technical sense of the word. My favorite art teacher in high school said, "if it takes you longer than 15 minutes, it is NOT a sketch." Most of the posts here are beautiful, finished pieces, not really a "sketch" - but that's okay...I LOVE IT!!

are we not getting a little toooo, technical here? the whole idea is that each day we get a topic so we can use that to sketch, on paper or computer. How much time one uses or how they intrerpret the topic is up to each artist. Some find the topic funny, some find it serious, the cool thing is to see how many different interpretations, styles, ideas etc can come out from one simple topic :thumbsup:

Who says when it's finished anyway? A sketch CAN be a finished work, ever heard of a guy called Pablo Picasso? He painted and painted and there were a lot of stages when everybody else would have said "finished" but he went on and painted until HE was happy. There is a video showing exactly how it works, it's quite interesting.

Wowsers...

I wake up to craziness here...



Everyone here is an artist and knows that there are no rules in art (well, except when you are being paid to do a job for someone else...but even then...). Whether it is a sketch or a finished piece, either can be a shaky line scribbled on a stained napkin. It doesn't have to be understood by everyone, or anyone. Andrewly's said he was exploring non-reference rendering of a material. Sounds great to me....



I love this little forum and it gives all of us a chance to explore not only ourselves, but others as well. It is an amazing place and privilege to see such growth from others who are here voluntarily, and are not forced to be here. Where else can you get an opportunity to do such a thing (without paying a fortune)...Amazing if you think about it like that. And from here we cannot help but grow ourselves. I am looking forward to using this forum to catapult my sketching skills until it ends. And thank you to everyone here for the learning experiences, comments, laughs, and the breaths so many have taken away.


...to learning,
Chris Reid

Okay, most of us can do "funny" (unless we're being obscure :rolleyes: ), but how many can do sad:cry:, or ironic:curious:? How about drawings in perspective? I think the point being made was that "funny" is good, but we should try othere things, too so that we can really challenge ourselves.

Okay, most of us can do "funny" (unless we're being obscure :rolleyes: ), but how many can do sad:cry:, or ironic:curious:? How about drawings in perspective? I think the point being made was that "funny" is good, but we should try othere things, too so that we can really challenge ourselves.
YEAH!! What he said!

lol since we are all agreeing with eachother we should just stick to drawing and quit debating, eh? :bounce:

I feel that a bit of debate doesn't hurt as long as it is done in respectfull fashion. In an international setting as this there are bound to be differences in opinion. It can only be worthwhile to explore them a bit further, something we may benefit creatively from as well.

Wow. I miss out on all the interesting discussions over the weekend.

I liked the topic and couldnt get the idea of "the hounds of war" out of my head, so I did a quickie for this topic.

MustardWash - I only wish my finished sketches looked as good as your quick 20 minute ones! -SIGH- [edit: I'm curious to know what resolution/size you draw in? I've been playing with that some and haven't decided what works best...to work large, then size it down or start at the size I plan to use and zoom in, etc.) :end edit]

Grafi - very nice, love the reflections

eldee - that is VERY funny!

robinayles: For resolution and size, I usually start with a canvas of 1600x1600 at 300dpi or 3200x3200 at 600dpi depending on how detailed I want to be. I mostly use 300 dpi for the daily sketches. After I am finished I will crop and then resize down.

Working larger than your final size will give you a smoother, cleaner picture when you are finished, and also help you avoid any pixelation / jaggies. The more pixels the merrier I guess you could say. :D Zooming in on the size you plan on useing, I feel, gives you less freedom to play around and make mistakes.

I suggest you play around to find out what you're comfortable with. You also need to take the filesize into consideration, but that just depends on what the computer you are working on can handle.

I hope you find this usefull! :)

YES! Thank you, oh great and mighty MustardWash! I'll start playing with that when I get home to my tools tonight. I figured I must be doing something wrong - never seemed to get smooth lines. I can see why your way would work better.

Again, thanks for sharing!
