OK we are going to do AN EXPERIMENT for the next few days...


You have 35, (count them 35!) minutes to do your sketch. The idea is that at the end of those 35 minutes you have to post your sketch in whatever form it is.
So bring out your sketcbook, and your watch, ill be watching you!


The idea of this exercise is to build up speed m so you may post as many DIFFERENT sketches as you want.

And by the way, to keep people in their toes, I will vary the LENGHT of time.

"In the shadow of the beast"
by
CodeNothing




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

Painter, used a reference for his left hand, probably exceeded the time limit a little:

Great atmosphere, augustus. I feel creeped out even looking at that!


Bobby- :scream: Babysitting nieces and nephews did make me look at Barney that way. :D
15 minutes, not a lot of time tonight.

I didn't have time to try and paint a beast so I went with the idea that he's got a beast within that has possessed his own shadow.. Or something...

CarlWahl- Great Look, cool idea

augustus- Spectacular

digital-bobert - I knew not to trust him, love the style of the kids

I very nearly ran completely out of time today becauswe i started doing lineart first - not a good idea when time is that short (well for me anyway) :D

So 35 minutes to the dot, PS + Wacom

First sketch entry here. Wanted to do way more, but that time limit keeps it short. Happy with the small mouse and flashlight, the rest not so much so.

PS + Wacom + 35min

I don't know... it's just what came out. And actually I like how it was without the dragon better... maybe it could be metaphoric. :D So here are both versions.

It's supposed to be the beast's young, following in its shadow...

I like the shorter time limits- gives me no excuse to get a quick sketch in.

Hey all,

I'm loving some of the paintings so far. Some very sweet stuff.

Here's my entry for today. Wish I had more time. The problem with making the time limits for everything is that you have to rush every single piece. It's nice to go fast, it's nice to have time. If you make it like a tier system for those who follow the time restrictions and then a lower tier for those who don't, then why bother posting if you exceed the time? I know for myself, I'd just use the topics and just draw on my own. I like to post here and stay in step with what everyone is doing. It's just a little frustrating to always have to post rushed and unfinished artwork. Sometimes you miss strutting your stuff by going nuts on a really great piece.

GETA-VE: Thanks, I really appreciate that. No, I don't have a cg portfolio yet. I'm in first year animation, and I'm really just warming up: getting used to doing daily compositions and digital paintings. I do have a blog of my student work, its:

How do you guys make such solid looking pictures? Whenever I sketch my strokes look transparent and the subject looks unrealistic. Is there a trick to it? Should I use opaque brush strokes when blocking in colors?

I've found a lot of help from some great tutorials from nebezial (http://member.php/?u=137808) located here (http://showthread.php?p=2506164#post2506164)
And walrus (http://member.php/?u=122885) located here (http://features.cgsociety.org/story_custom.php?story_id=3338)
Someone put Nebezial's tutorial in PDF format, you can grab it here (http://www.tobyart.com/nebezial.pdf)
There is also a great painting hair and faces tutorials, not sure where those are but they're on CGTalk somewhere
Hope it helps

Nice work as always, pipichu :D

Finished in about 4 hours.
I had a difficult time with it, especially the shading... the beast changed alot in the process.
