Man, I have much to learn about this digital-painting-thing.

30 minutes pencil/pigmented ink
scanned in PSP 8 - colored in Painter/Wacom

dgpilot: very well rendered!

Vyse_soa: Great Idea and nice lighting! Love it!

theabyss: LOL

4hours ps+wacom

dgpilot: Very nice! Very hot! :D Could be perfect person for guys :D
Vyse_soa: Wow, very nice lighting and mood. Love the composing part! :D
theabyss: That's so cute! lol! I don't know why, but it's so cute.
Goro: Wow, nice! I think it's the best one of all!

here's mine... Photoshop CS, intros2 tablet. 30 min. It's about a perfect evolved being... a perfect human in our eye... (perhaps in the future?) Enjoy! ;)

very nice mr.fujita, you are improving rather fast. :eek:

07 July 2004, 12:41 AM
Heres my effort - didn't have much time. PS - 45mins.

Goro - lovely work as usual.

07 July 2004, 01:05 AM
dgpilot: Awesome. Your effort shows. Might be better without the glasses though.
Vyse_soa: You stole one of my ideas =p. I like your sense of illumination.
theabyss: Hah. Good idea.
Goro: I'm not fond of nudes in art, but that doesn't mean it's not well done. Good as always man. I like the hair and touch screen especially. Though it appears her back arches a bit too much near the top *shrug.*
DreamMaster: Nice job. I like the foggy feel.
MVP: Looks a little blurry, but hey... it's a sketch forum, so it doesn't matter. Good concept. I wonder what happened to v2.0? =p

At any rate.. here's mine. About 10 minutes with a ball point pen & paper.

I could only think of one human to fit this one. I used a pic from Mel Gibson's film for reference. It seems too much like the original poster though, so that might disqualify me from the voting, but oh well.

oh, and I used open canvas and it took about 40 minutes

I figure the "perfect human" wears a name badge, is underappreciated, underpaid and feels like he's carrying the world on his shoulders. It's not me, though. I hate wearing neckties. 2hrs wacom/painter classic & PSE.

This was a really tough one for a couple reasons:
1. The word "perfect" isn't as subjective as one might think when it comes to art. We are only doing "sketches" but the word "perfect" demands a certain level of originality and execution that is pretty high
2. Humanity doesn't view itself as all that perfect anyhoo. We have perfection in degrees in segments of the population (e.g. Lance Armstrong is a perfect cyclist) but the general category of "human" implies a certain universality that can be tricky to even approach conceptually.

I tried to go the old-man route. Defying ideas of physical perfection for a more holistic approach, I was going to go for a sort of mystical and too-ancient look for this guy. I have run out of time so I'm posting it in incompletion.

1hr painter tablet

This is my 3rd entry. 1 hour, wacom and photoshop. It's not really finished, the style is inconsistent at the moment, but I'm out of time.
"Do you think we have found the perfect human?"
"Possibly, but the only way to be sure is to probe him."
