"FORUM TROLLS"
By ROR


Posted Nov 6 9 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.
* RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
* 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, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
* 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

-Roberto

forum trolls are people who log on and post with the sole intention of starting flame wars or fights. they usually don't have anyhting to say. and led to the rise of the saying "please don't feed the trolls"

hope that helps :)

Used to be part of the conceptart.org dsg but the topics really stopped interesting me so I left it. Now after ages of doing nothing I thought I'd look around here and here's the entry. Be kind :D

About 2 Hours in Photoshop, took so long cause everything including the initial sketch was mouse drawn. Need a tablet.

About 1.5 hours. I was gonna give him a flame thrower (for flaming people, of course) but was too lazy to find a reference pic.

Nice sketches everyone... and man Friday, you did it again. I love the perspective/foreshortening and the nice lighting from the monitor and the backlight. A great troll-like characterature too.

Thanks for the comment deaderthanred, I was going to do the same next! Obviously you did it first so there is no point on doing it now. Plus yours looks great mate!
Cheers!

hope that helps :) To complete this explanation, here's an example : http://cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=2356

Some guy there is obviously a troll for posting this subject in such terms.

EDIT: don't reply to that thread I link here, it's a 2 year old thread someone decided to "resurect" recently, no point in replying to the original author as he's probably gone trolling other forums.

Hammy_W: That expression and the little sign... priceless:applause:
FridayEve: Excellent lighting... That's the hardest part for me. I actually don't think I'll someday manage to get lighting right, but I keep trying.

It's been a while since I made a daily sketch... Man I hate college!
