07 July 2004, 07:55 PM
Photoshop < 1 hour... gah, I gotta stop looking at cg talk during work. I get no work done :rolleyes: First 2d art I've ever posted in cgtalk... go figure.

07 July 2004, 08:19 PM
here's mine. literal interpretation. There went more time in this than you might think. I dunno exactly, I think more than 2 hours. Had trouble with the poses.

I wanted to do a slightly different style this time, more sunny, but I feel like this is mre like my very first sketches: not too good..

what do you guys think?

edit: some real nice entries so far! As a matter of fact, I really like them all! Favourite so far: Cyanid, despite the strange lighting ;)

07 July 2004, 08:36 PM

Over 2 hours in Painter. Just when you thought sci-fi week was over!

07 July 2004, 09:48 PM
LMAO telliot that's EXACTLY how I feel sometimes, I really hate it when people look over my shoulder when I draw.

you nailed it pretty good :beer:

07 July 2004, 09:55 PM
this just happened...I was just playing abut with the idea, trying to put something to paper and this popped up. around 40 miures in photoshop. Well if this thing was watching me, i would hope there weren't any more doing the same thang!!

07 July 2004, 10:35 PM
Here's another one. Finally summer holiday so I've got nothing to do might as well do some more sketches. Photoshop about 1 hour.

07 July 2004, 10:43 PM
my spin on the topic:
20 minutes ps/wacom

garma: since you asked, i like the look of the drawing but the proportions of the girl on the left dont work quite right. her right leg looks too spindly and disconnected i think. and her torso is a little long for the size of her arms. shoulders are slightly too broad for a female too. the older woman on the right are fine. her disproportions work well and add to her character.

07 July 2004, 11:13 PM
it's been a while:)
Had some difficulties with the booktitles.
This topic's great! Here is my sketch for today. about an hour

Digimatrix: cute sketch!

07 July 2004, 11:25 PM

07 July 2004, 11:29 PM
It's all really cool stuff.

07 July 2004, 12:25 PM
I see dead people,
Do you believe in ghosts, they are always watching!
15min chalk/15 min PS
Drumwhore - love the pic, very effect and chillingly themed in contrast to the colours!

07 July 2004, 02:34 PM
A lot of good posts.
Drumwhore- very nice. I was thinking along similar lines, but my idea was more from the "exhibitionist's" standpoint. ("Yes! They're watching!")

My boss has decided to keep me busy these last few days- hopefully I'll get in on the next one. Good work everyone! :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 02:57 PM
hey gang, tell me if my monitor is screwed up because at home the colors look fine, but here at work, its a different story.

the grass should be yellow with a hint of green and the faces of the gorrillas should be greyish brown and should be contrasted well from the rest of their bodies, also their should be a highlighted area along the left side of the gorrillas.

I may need to adjust my monitor I dont know but I'd appreciate your help on this.

Is there a website that I can go to that will help me adjust my monitor properly? Im talking like a website that has the proper color and contrast know.

07 July 2004, 04:12 PM
wow )
a great sketch as always Goro

[ took me around 40 minutes with painter ]

They are watching YOU !

THEY'RE WATCHING; a second or two; snapped a photo of these 2 critters eating bird seed on my back doorstep, scanned and clicked Plastic Wrap in PS. :) They knew they were being watched. :D
