Bugger! I can't think of anything other than the same idea I had for the Lost and Found ( category... :sad:

Think dammit think!

06 June 2004, 07:21 PM
Inked by hand and coloured in Photoshop, took about 2 and a half hours.

06 June 2004, 07:21 PM
40 min photoshop, brush tool, 1 pixel

note to self: this is your last sketch for this week, 'cos you don't have time!

06 June 2004, 07:54 PM
Here is mine. 1h 10min painter:

06 June 2004, 08:33 PM
I hope someone understands the joke here... I might have the color wrong but if anyone can recall the radio phone incident... :D

I used Adobe Photoshop, my graphire three, and a lot of staring at the screen for a long time. It all took well over an hour and a half, probably about two hours, heh.

06 June 2004, 08:47 PM

06 June 2004, 09:17 PM
well i got this idea from a google search image. :shrug:

but this is my first ever piece done with a wacom...well i say that, the first ever piece done with my wacom. :applause:

06 June 2004, 09:18 PM
carl was quite a pig on set...

pencil, 45 minutes. good topic - this film was a real inspiration for a lot of us.

TeoM, that's pretty funny. you should work on some dino "carney folk".


06 June 2004, 10:05 PM
1 Hour 15 minutes. Open Canvas and Photoshop.

06 June 2004, 10:17 PM
I found time to make this.... I only posted a quick sketch for yesterdays.... but anyway
Photoshop and mouse. 1 hour I am still learning,I am getting at least faster for the same quality. :hmm:
Oh i learned how to make my own brushes so i dont have to use the grass brush tool, I made my own brush for the first time... YEY.

IT WAS EITHER THIS OR OLD PEOPLE... but since I have already used old people in 2 drawings. "free fall" and "fight club" yesterday I think I should leave them alone for a little bit..

.... when they thought it was all over.....


hey Roberto good pick for topic.. considering thats what we will see in meeting 2 :)

06 June 2004, 10:39 PM
Mine for today.
PS & penpointer 1h 20m

Teom : nice style Park 1,20.jpg

06 June 2004, 10:43 PM
2 1/2 hours, Photoshop, Custom Brushes (which were quite nasty this time, resulting in an image looked like it was beaten by a bully filter:

Awsome work today, but TeoM, your image is amazing. The line work on the Dinosaurs Teeth and background carnival rides is fabulous :bounce:

06 June 2004, 10:53 PM

Amber with the dino dna...

06 June 2004, 11:29 PM
ravioli_rancher- Yours is hilarious. Brush is alright but more color is needed.

Kieronh-I'm assuming thats inside an egg or something. Looks really cool though nice colors.

Biped-Awesome work I love the poses and dinosaurs

sagi_13-Pretty cool but some shading on the egg would have made it feel rounder in 3d dimensions. Looks a little flat :(

bilbo3d-Nice sketch, I love the touch with the cookies.

bah all the others are great too... im to lazy to write a little piece for each.

This took me about an hour and was referenced using "Sunday Afternoon" . I was gonna have dinosaurs replace the people but they ended up looking like garbage so i just scrapped it.

06 June 2004, 11:40 PM
sagi_13-Pretty cool but some shading on the egg would have made it feel rounder in 3d dimensions. Looks a little flat :(

thanks for the comment, yeah it does look flat, I was not sure how to make it look rounder, that is why I added those brown lines, me and lighting are still not the best of friends, Ill try shading the egg see what happens..

06 June 2004, 11:48 PM
1h30 pencil drawing, watercolor and photoshop wacom.
I guess we are back to 640/480.

06 June 2004, 11:54 PM
Haha its so evil yet the Dino's expression is so funny

06 June 2004, 12:06 AM
Haha pasto nice one!

Here is mine...not really satisfied with it.
PS wacom 2h

06 June 2004, 12:13 AM
Lovely work as usual Pasto! Yours too Goro!

@Sagi_13 - Try creating a new layer, set it to overlay, and flood with 50% grey. Use a big, round, soft airbrush and paint with black and white. Try putting the Highlight a bit to one side, and a sliver of light on the opposite side, to give the impression of bounced light off the ground. Finally, get a hard brush with 50% grey again, and paint in the bits where you went over the lines to fix it up!

Thought I'd go the cartoony look for a change, about 45 minutes with the pencil, and about an hour playing with colour in Photoshop with the ol' Wacom.

I call it "Pet Sitting".

06 June 2004, 12:20 AM
Hey thanx a lot guys, I guess I am more comfort with traditionnal pencil drawing...
too bad cause I really wanted to get comfortable with the wacom.

Dargon, it is 2:15 here and your image made me laugh to death.


06 June 2004, 02:19 AM
Fantastic work everyone! I experemented a bit on this one and it got to the point where I finally had to give up. But in working on it, it envoked some of the same feelings I got watching the film for the first time. (great books too)

2.5 hours, photoshop w/mouse.

Goblin King
06 June 2004, 02:53 AM
Great submissions today everyone!

Spent 3 hours on mine today, got kinda carried away and lost track of time. Wacom & photoshop as always!

06 June 2004, 03:06 AM
had no idea come to mind when I read the topic...had nothing to good's hideous I know - but it's all I could get...hour - mouse and photoshop

Hell I don't even know how it even relates to jurassic park...oh well...some really nice submissions so far...

06 June 2004, 03:10 AM
Ok. so far we have 16 carnivores, 4 herbivores, amber, an egg, a phone, a donkey, and some poop.

sounds like Jurassic Park to me!

I love 'em all! :D

06 June 2004, 04:08 AM
Ok heres my go at it, as you can see there are no dinosaurs as i went for more of the environment. Lots of great work so far as usual. Photoshop 6, 2 hour...

06 June 2004, 05:10 AM
In one of the books, i remember some small dinos swimming to the mainland where they would harass infants etc.

painter / 2hrs

lots of great dinosaurs!!
pasto: nice sketch!
teoM: had a good laugh with that! well drawn too :)
Kieronh: good job on the amber.

the sparky
06 June 2004, 06:31 AM
I'm kind of afraid that this is too dark.

06 June 2004, 07:12 AM
1.5 hrs sketching on paper with marker and charcoal. 0.5 hrs on colouring and adjusting the colours :P
Hope you guys like this park ;)

06 June 2004, 08:31 AM
Well sparky, just add some highlights on it, the drawing is nice.

squee I love it. Everytime I try to make trees like yours I put random points and get a big mess of unrecognized points...

Ephesus, really peacefull, nice compo.


06 June 2004, 09:38 AM
45 minute sketch. 2 hours coloring.

06 June 2004, 11:53 AM
Fun topic, had to do this one in full colour. Plz don't mind the anatomy! :D

My T-Rex: acrylics on paper. 4 hrs.


06 June 2004, 01:18 PM
Hi all. I just finished my almost 1st totally photoshop painted image.. and I figured out how slow I was... ;(

It took me 3 hours to finish this image totally. Anyways. all c&c are welcome.


06 June 2004, 01:21 PM
Robert, I dont mind the antatomy at all! it looks great! great style.
Thanks for the compliment Pasto. I prefer the more peacful side of JP myself. but theres nothing wrong with a T-rex with a taste for human!

06 June 2004, 01:32 PM
Here is mine

20min pen/15min photoshop
my favs:
Goro-Awsome atmosphere
RobertNitiredjo - great movement and colours

06 June 2004, 01:59 PM
zzacmann: That's just awesome. If i had any kids, thats where I would take them for sure.

Great stuff by every one else as well. I'm really starting to like these topics.

06 June 2004, 02:10 PM
This was the first thing that popped into m' noggin' when I saw the title.
I opted for a more croc-like skin texture fer T-man. And the guinea pig wanted to be a pleasant dark blonde.

There is some incredible work here.

RobertNitiredjo: Very nice use of earthtones- I dig your style.

Kieronh: I like the amber. That's the first thing I thought when I saw it. Nice angle on the topic.

OK, there are a lot of them here that I'd like to compliment- I'll just say nice job to everyone. Great topic! :thumbsup:

I almost forgot: pencil sketch was about an hour, then I colored it entirely in Illustrator CS at about 3 or 4 hours. The most time I've spent on one of these thus far.

06 June 2004, 02:13 PM
Here's mine :)

PS&W 2h



06 June 2004, 04:02 PM

Jurrasic Insect; about 2 hours; Abdobe Illustrator; I had a nightmare on account of this thing! :scream:

Folks, I'm having trouble posting my pic. Please help! Thanks. :)

06 June 2004, 05:59 PM
Thanks Dargon,
I tried real quick the advice you gave me, and I see how it works, I didnt spent too much fixing it cause I have other stuff to do, but thanks for teaching me the techique! thank you thank you thank you...

here is how I fixed it 10 minutes photoshop.

07 July 2004, 12:25 AM
Here is what I came up with.

Took me 2 hours from concept to finished piece. I used photoshop 6 and a wacom graphire. Critique will be greatly appreciated.

07 July 2004, 04:06 AM
Mine's about 14 hours late, but as Marcia Brady would say, "Something suddenly came up. . ."

There hasn't been a #3 yet, has there? Anyway, I wanted to add Mothra
to make it more of an even battle, but ran out of room and I was already
late. About 1.5 hours in Photoshop.

07 July 2004, 04:19 AM
yes, there has been a #3

And if it had Mothra, it would have been much better. Instead it had a giant stupid Duck that killed the T-Rex. Blasphamy.

07 July 2004, 12:14 AM

This isn't eval, but it's annuostivix on evals computer, and I didn't want to sign her out. (She said I could do this)


I like this picture a lot. You described it so badly lastnight, but now that I saw it, I feel like my phone is silly. You should let me know how you did the shading some time, it's better than the shading in your other stuff.

07 July 2004, 01:02 PM
Ok, dunno if this contest is still running, but here's my attempt. :) One of my first attempts at painting something other than a texture. Not too great, but a start is a start. ;)

65 min with Photoshop.

07 July 2004, 06:24 PM
