* 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.

Good luck

Why are there no emperors yet today?

Anyways, introducing the Emperor - of Hype Town.
He has earned the status of Emperor from his world renown as THE definitive hype machine in Hype Town, bar none. No other in all the land can rock a crowd to a fever pitch with just one mike and a DJ. Thus, he has been imortalized as a seer of the future, along with other revered Lords of the Tarot.

Wacom + ProCreate Painter Classic + 1.5 hours.
I couldn't bring myself to color it....

Darklord101: the metal from the helmet looks great ...

Here is an emporer in 1-1.5 hours photoshop with an Acer C300...
I'm absolute not satisfied with the way he looks but I think it's the best I can do ;)

Here's my first attempt in the daily sketch forum.
I'm not good at coloring yet, so I'm leaving it as a B&W sketch.

Sorry ,couldn't conjure any imaginative stuff from my mind at this hour... :(

Photoshop + Wacom, 45 minutes

Sorry, I've been quiet for a while. Things a really getting busy for me (in a good way). Unfortunately I had a system lock up while working on this so I'm submitting this incomplete work.

By the way. No one said the emperor had to be human.

This was done in GIMP. I have no idea how long it took. I've been working on it in several two or three minute segments.
