* 640 x 480 / 480 x 640 OR 800 x 600 /600 x 800
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" o plagiarizing.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.

"* Only original compositions. No "tributes" o plagiarizing."

Might want to fix that?

Here's mine: 15 mins, PS/Mouse.

Won in a poker game...

I have another, better one [hopefully] coming, but it'll take longer so I figured I'd do this one real quick before I start on that one.

1 hour with Artrage/Wacom, reference from couple of old 1880s photos of the American West & it went from there.

LOL! NileshXYZ posted that pic in the wrong thread I think. But nice work, Nilesh!

not to post anything, however: it's quite funny to see how everyone thinks the same of the subject: with guns and violence.
Just wanted to say that ;S

...dont forget the alcohol :)....

Painter/Photoshop - 2h30m

Also the start of a much bigger project I've been doing research for over the past 2 weeks.

08 August 2004, 02:54 PM

Used a reference pic for Bush's face, but I still had a hard time. Also wrestled Photobucket for awhile - I guess I didn't have enough contrast because uploaded image was very smeared, so 3+ hours w/ PS and a Wacom.

jeroentje -- :eek: Will your project involve making more amazing pictures like this? Hope you post them!
Kieronh -- Nice! He reminds me of Cookie from the movie City Slickers.

Really cool ideas, everyone.
