5 min in Photoshop

07 July 2004, 12:09 AM
Whoa, great Drumwhore... I had pretty much the same Idea

07 July 2004, 12:36 AM
Adobe ImageReady, 2 to 3 hours with a lot of animation testing :D

Great work drumwhore. Nice colours!

07 July 2004, 12:39 AM

Drumwhore that's probably one of your best!

07 July 2004, 12:54 AM

emphasis on the "midnight" part. 2.5 hours, photoshop, wacom.

stephan--awesome stuff, animation works very effectively. i only wish that was my idea :(

07 July 2004, 05:05 AM
my interpretation between good and evil is "Mother Nature"
1hr photoshop wacom tablet

07 July 2004, 05:16 AM

Loved the book and movie but wanted to keep it simple -- midnight, good plants and bad plants. Hope you like.
PS & wacom 1 hour

07 July 2004, 07:10 AM
No time today so heres a quick cartoon. PS - 10 mins.

07 July 2004, 07:32 AM
Haha, thats great stephan! Very well done!

Nice one everyone.

07 July 2004, 10:02 AM
Thanks all for your comments :)

stephan.s: thats a brilliant idea! And the sketch is also really nice! A cropped version would make a nice avatar :)

07 July 2004, 10:07 AM
PS 1.5hr

Drumwhore - VERY nice. I think this is your best piece yet. :)

stephen.s - Man... I just spent over an hour just browsing thru your gallery. Very inspiring you are. This last piece is top notch - 'Scott Harris' is right, you might just start a chain reaction. I'm SO tempted to animate my sketches. (I did on final frontier, but NOWHERE nearly as dramatic as yours) :D Pretty sure you've got my vote for this sketch.

07 July 2004, 10:28 AM
Drumwhore: Very cool! It has ..everything :)

StephanS: :eek: Stop it!

NilkNarf: You really have your own style, good job! :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 10:30 AM
I agree!! stephan that is so would have to be my fav work of any topic so far! it's a buzz for me to be able to post next to work like that :)

07 July 2004, 10:46 AM
here's my interpretation of it. about 1.5-2 hours in painter and photoshop. very enjoyable.


07 July 2004, 11:00 AM
whoa. stormeffex, that is top quality. i dig the texturing, characters, and especially the setting and reflections. nice post.

is this your first daily sketch post?

07 July 2004, 11:41 AM
yes this is my first post on the daily sketch thread. i'm gonna try and do it daily...but no promises here.

07 July 2004, 01:30 PM
Here's my first dailysketch post. The 'garden of good and evil' is the fridge and what good/evil foods we keep in it! The midnight part is to do with midnight snacking...

Took around 30 mins in photoshop.

I dig the animation Stephan :)


07 July 2004, 01:45 PM
Its not finished yet, it would just take too long for a daily sketch...

07 July 2004, 01:45 PM
Hi everyone.

This is my 1st ever daily sketch entry. I'm not a very good concept artist, but I thought I'd have a go at this one.

It took about 2 hours, with a Wacom & PS.

There's some truely outstanding work in these daily sketch forums. I might become a regular, if I can convince myself I'm not as terrible as I think I am :)

07 July 2004, 09:45 PM
1hour30 Brilliant idea Stephan :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 10:11 AM

08 August 2004, 11:25 AM
Adobe ImageReady, 2 to 3 hours with a lot of animation testing :D

nice touch :thumbsup:

08 August 2004, 12:24 PM
