I decided to go with a more morbid drawing to day as well. I also went with some thinner lines this time, I think it has a better feel to it. I know, my proportions arent that great, but I really cant draw people well at all so Im not gonna say otherwise.

2 hours, photoshop, trackball

07 July 2004, 09:36 AM
I guess it was not knowing what 2 minus 6 is that pushed them over the edge!

Let's ram against those children!

2:30 (gosh!)/PS/Wcm

Hi. The kid is wearing the standar uniform that all students here in Chile wear in school. Don't know why the dad looks like Peter Jackson!! :D

Thank God the book titles are gone. And please give a prayer or two for me and my friggin thesis.

I love how the dad looks like he's riding a freaking donky at the fair or something...

07 July 2004, 05:17 PM
All you guys are just awesome!
/me applauds. Got my XSI package a few days ago so I've kind of been paying attention to it. I know i'll get back into this soon :)

07 July 2004, 08:53 PM
oh yeah, Guy Incognito, one wrong answer and you never know what your parents might do to ya.

07 July 2004, 10:01 PM

OK. Here's mine. I call it "No dad...Dodge Ball is NOT fun!"

Photoshop/Wacom...geez, probably about 3hrs. I keep getting sucked into the textures. Gotta watch that.

Great sketch, Sir Patroclo! LOL! Peter Jackson for sure! I think I may be in for therapy after checking out the others. ;) Definitely not what I thought of when I read the topic.

07 July 2004, 10:57 PM
tservo, that's wonderfull. You can just hear the meaty thud.

jajajajajajajajajajaa :beer:

Funny, Supervlieg, the expression in the monkey dad's face is hilarious!

Thanks for the comments.


Sir Patroclo

07 July 2004, 05:14 AM've heard that for those who attended parochial school, the mere sight of a nun caused them to break out in a cold sweat. Especially one with a ruler in her hand. Nuns of her order take a vow of poverty, chastity and of not having eyebrows. :eek: About 2 hours in photoshop.

07 July 2004, 12:31 PM
Sir Patroclo! Amazing sketch! probably one of your best entries!

Supervlieg: nice expressions and great idea:)

07 July 2004, 09:23 PM
I'm a a bit late with my sketch coz I was away for the weekend, but I didn't want to miss this one.

Sir Patroclo: Great work, I like your style and nice colours. Dad kinda remind me of somebody when I looked at it without reading ur comments. It was Peter Jackson. NICE:D

Here's my sketch. Didn't have much time to color it.
Plain paper and pencil work.

07 July 2004, 02:19 AM
That sketch is kickass Patroclo!

07 July 2004, 12:55 PM

07 July 2004, 03:11 PM

Thank you gentlemen for your kind comments. Totoro, I like that character design a lot, it begs to be animated.


Sir Patroclo

07 July 2004, 09:13 AM
Haha, this is so cool.
Like all the sketches. I think its time to do something myself :)
Keep it up everyone!!
