Now where the hell did that darn kid go...

About 10 minutes, photoshop and a nameless tablet.

06-07-2004, 04:04 PM
Hello everyone, long time since I've been here.

Here, it took me about 20 min.

06-07-2004, 04:11 PM

great idea PaemrI:applause:

06-07-2004, 04:53 PM
Hello, everyone,

this is my first post in the daily sketch group. Hopefully it will not be the last, because this is great training for my underdeveloped drawing skills.

I used Bodypaint 2 and an A5 Wacom for it and it took me, ahem, an hour.


EDIT: How embarassing - after I looked at the other pictures I realised that I completely misunderstood the subject, concentrating on the "bringing" rather than the "at work" :blush: Oh, well... next time, Gadget, next time.

06-07-2004, 05:20 PM

Ugh I've seen better days, drawing wise, hope you like the idea at least ^^)
Photoshop CS, around 90 minutes.
Thanks to 'crocodile hunter' for the idea, he took his kids to a crodile farm and held it very close to a crocodile. That wasn't seen as a very good thing to do :p

I know... It doesn't make much sense...

20min, Pencil, Scan, Photoshop, Mouse.

[edit- Ok, the story seems a little unclear... maybe the sketch is too "sketchy" after all...
It's a spermatozoid dad going to work at the ovule... But his "kid" makes him get late... Get it ? -]

06-07-2004, 06:30 PM

06-07-2004, 06:54 PM
Undoubtedly the best place to leave a kid @ work :)

about: 45 min. pencil


I decide to color it in Photoshop. +20 min

great idea PaemrI

thank you matty_UK!

06-07-2004, 07:36 PM
Note to self: Do not look at AJ_23's pic at work. Laughter is against company policy.

Damn, that's funny!

06-07-2004, 07:59 PM
media : pencil & paper

time : 30mins

comments : well here's my attempt... I hate sketching, i'm no good at it!! Well I guess this is a little child dressing up like his old man!

06-07-2004, 08:30 PM
One more...

Photoshop, mouse, 20 mins

*edit* (bugger, saved with a layer turned off...)

06-07-2004, 08:37 PM
farside inspired doodle:
"The fateful day the school's chili tasted like actual meat."

10 minutes maybe


06-07-2004, 08:38 PM
AJ: Sweeeet last one :beer:

I got a similar interpretation

photoshop, no idea how long, worked on and off on it today. Probably 1.30 - 2 hours.

some crits are really appreciated. I screwed the dude to the right on the table I know that. Anymore advices?

going back to color tomorrow..

AJ_23 - I love your sketches. They make me laugh.

06-07-2004, 08:57 PM
Thanks! :beer:

I also see that you too are a resident of Monkey World... It's great here isn't it. :D

06-07-2004, 09:16 PM
Hi, first time posting something here.
Ill get in the queue and say 'love your pictures AJ_23' very nice style.

sorry but couldnt resist....

done with painter8 and my wonky Nisis tablet 60 mins approx

06-07-2004, 09:42 PM
Every kid's dream
gimp with mouse, 40 minutes

06-07-2004, 09:46 PM

10 min sketch.
too lazy to color

06-07-2004, 09:52 PM
Sure son, you can bring your super-soaker, no problem.

Painter8.1 , Photoshop CS
1,5 Hr :(

AJ_23: Excellent entries, LMAO.

06-07-2004, 10:04 PM
Only managed 15mins today:sad:

06-07-2004, 10:33 PM
some of these ideas are extremely creative...

aj_23 - way too funny, and you pulled it off quite nicely. your 2nd rocks too.. i like how you have lil mans legs at full blast.. i can definately picture this in motion.

buzz3d - i love the idea, but i love the quality of the sketch even more.

i can only hope mine comes out half as cool as these!


06-07-2004, 10:42 PM
Vampire hunting is a pretty intense job, I don't think I'd want to take my kid to work if I were a vampire hunter...


Edit - I went in and gave it more intense lighting, as the foreground really didn't fit with the background at all. I'm really happy with what a little bit of heavier shading did, the picture has much more of the intensity I wanted.

So in the end this took 3 Hours in Photoshop w/ a WACOM

06-07-2004, 10:49 PM
theres quite a lot of emotion in that picture Flatuloso, well done

quick scribble 10mins painter8

06-07-2004, 11:18 PM

Painter 7, wacom, 15-20 minutes

aj_23 that second one is RAD

06-07-2004, 11:22 PM
AJ23 lol both very nice!

here is mine. Took some time...about 2h 30min hours
all photoshop

06-07-2004, 11:37 PM
Brilliant characters AJ_23! And Goro, you have amazing paint skills my friend.:D

06-07-2004, 11:43 PM
PS 4hrs

06-07-2004, 11:43 PM
Pencil and pen about 20 minutes. Text in PSP another 5 minutes ...

06-07-2004, 11:47 PM
Outrageous. I won't name names -because it would take too long. Every image here got a thumbs up because it generated a admiration, a chuckle, a shiver or some other acknowledgement its coolness. Great thread.

06-08-2004, 12:04 AM
AJ_23, great sketches! love the humour!! Beautiful, Goro! Love the sketch, Buzzz3D! Lots of great ideas! Sorry I couldn't participate today - too busy - maybe see you all tomorrow! Keep on sketchin'!

06-08-2004, 12:05 AM
Pencil Drawing, scanned in, then painted in photoshop. Total time from concept to creation about 2.5 hours. Hope you guys like it and are able to follow the story.

Bill a.k.a Fnote

06-08-2004, 12:10 AM
Man i thought my idea was original but I just saw NoPancakeMix
drew the same thing.. Oh well, I already drew it so here it is
pencil and paper, 20 minutes sketch

Well at least I dont have such a sick mind as I thought since I am not the only one who thought of this.
sorry for the bad scan

the sparky
06-08-2004, 12:10 AM
I sketched this in the morning - in about 20 minutes (including concept time, it took me a while to think of something I wanted to draw). Colored it in 40 minutes. I think I need to restrict my sketch time more.

AJ: yep, I love monkey world. :)

06-08-2004, 12:14 AM

hehe excellent work guys. Just way to tired for this one...gave up after a while. 30mins/Wacom/Painter


06-08-2004, 12:27 AM
not too pleased w/ this one, but eh - tis just a quick sketch.

may do another.

ps - 1hr.

06-08-2004, 12:44 AM
5 mins in photoshop

i love that one buzzz3d

06-08-2004, 12:45 AM
well i have an idea for a picture but i dont have any place to host so i cant but the idea would be a little child tied up to one of those machines u drop a quarter in to keep time for your parking, and this would be infront of a large office building.

06-08-2004, 12:52 AM
The FreakyOne
you can get free webhosting to upload picture at

that way you wont miss out in more of these.

06-08-2004, 02:41 AM
Couldn't really get into this one that much. Anyway, 10 minute sketch, 45 minutes in Photoshop.

06-08-2004, 02:57 AM
PS CS , 2 hours.
For some reason this idea popped right into my head....

Great images. Man, the quality and variety in these threads is fantastic!

Buzz3d and AJ_23, great images! Rojo, I love that concept :) Too many other great posts to comment on!

im actually glad you didnt color this in. i love the line quality and this is after all a sketching exercise, not a finished piece. great work and same for everyone else.


06-08-2004, 04:57 AM
Somehow this subject brought out the best in you all.
Checked out the new ones this morning, all very funny and creative.



06-08-2004, 05:16 AM
ok one more... hope it's obvious enough :P

ps - 2hrs

i liked this topic - some really awesome submissions today.

06-08-2004, 05:38 AM
"To serve and to protect" -- Wanted to try a perspective shot and got lost in the details. This one nearly killed me. 1/2 hour sketch, 4 hrs photoshop.

m-art had a similar idea, I see.
Don't know why strippers are all the rage today, but I was tempted to do a scene like that too.

06-08-2004, 06:04 AM
Jawine -- Stop being modest. Yours looks like a an animation still it's that good. :wip: Alligator looks amused with his new guest.

Flatuoso -- Mistook dad's expression for parental concern. Doggone kids cain't do nuthin right. . .:banghead:

Archeophant -- And this here's muh boy, Icarus. Nice. Dad got the rocket pack. :rolleyes:

Dr. Iamintricate, gynecologist. Yes, I can read backwards.:surprised

Nothing against a quick sketch, but nice to see that more people are working on thair pictures longer. Great ideas and great work all around. :beer:

06-08-2004, 07:26 AM
PS Wacom. approx. 15 min.

06-08-2004, 07:45 AM

:applause: :applause:

06-08-2004, 08:25 AM

A quick one, It's more the idea then the execution.


06-08-2004, 08:30 AM
Hmmm ... maybe this is poor execution of an idea. The baby's father is a surgeon and the thing in hand is a scalpel. I suppose I could have added more to the background to tell the story, but I had already spent too much time on the kid.

Paper to Photoshop 2.5 hours

06-08-2004, 08:34 AM
"Do you want to toast more souls of the damned, sweetie?" :D

Terrible drawing.
Done in lunch break: Photoshop, Wacom 4x8 (first sketch with the damn thing)

06-08-2004, 08:34 AM
outstanding, kirt. The message wasn't clear to me immediately, but you have great skills

06-08-2004, 08:39 AM
fnote - you're crazy! ... but that's awesome you took the time.

kirt! ... that is a badass lil baby. he sure looks like he knows what he's about to do!

06-08-2004, 08:39 AM
Fnote, I've edited my post with a story guideline, maybe it's clearer now... :p

06-08-2004, 08:40 AM
Supervlieg, nice concept!
Beautiful form Kirt! You've got mazing talent there.

06-08-2004, 09:05 AM
@everyone: Ncie work from everyone, all scribbles are funny ^^)
It seems this is an inspiring topic :)
@ilikesoup: Erm maybe i'm too perfectionistic :argh:
@Fnote: Wow, thanks for taking the time to write everyone a comment :thumbsup:

06-08-2004, 11:01 AM
love all the fun posts :)
Life as a singe working mother can be difficult...Take Sonja (10th level fighter). Last year her husband was mauled to death by a vicious Kobold. Today, unable to find suitable day care, she finds it difficult adventuring the Varooga Quagmire with her three kids in tow...correction: make that two kids.

06-08-2004, 02:17 PM
what a great topic! great ideas people.

Photoshop. 1 hour.

06-08-2004, 04:34 PM

Yeah i might be crazy but i figured if we are gonna have a competition and dice everyones stuff up why not make sure everyone gets some nice feedback. We want people to be inspired to keep things going right....well we cant leave them in the dark. Good job everybody.

- Fnote:applause:

06-08-2004, 05:14 PM
wow, amazing works...really great!!!

i'm surprised wit something...i saw just 3 images where the women are working, on 2 of that, the women was doing a strip job...
:surprised hehe

so, really cool sketches...i'll try to do my entry on the next topic....:)

06-08-2004, 05:34 PM
@Fnote -thanks for taking the time to comment. It made me feel good to get a comment and I can now get rid of the cartoon noose I was drawing to hang myself. ;) Actually I was sort of surprised by how good a few words made me feel so I think I'm going to learn from that and do some more specific virtual back slapping when I get home.

06-08-2004, 05:47 PM
@Fnote thanks also for the comments, Its gave me a bit of a confidence boost :) though I should point out the first pic was a butcher bringing his young goat (kid) to work. Not very funny but it was at the time :(

06-08-2004, 08:58 PM
*ACK!* That remark over hardly seeing women in jobs here is so right, I guess i should've know better being female myself :cry:

06-08-2004, 09:01 PM
My dragons are female. ;)

06-08-2004, 09:23 PM
