About 1 hour. Had a pic of the fish I used as reference.
Photoshop/Wacom. I just got a wacom last week and I have been teaching myself how to use Photoshop. I think this one is my best one yet.

Well, I hope the pic is obvious enough.. :)

08 August 2004, 02:31 AM
Ran out of time on this one, program kept crashing so I lost the first 2 attempts. (1hr ArtRage).


08 August 2004, 02:59 AM

Ugh. Mouse art. About 1.5 hours w/ps.

Dargon -- But. . . David ALWAYS wins. :sad:

08 August 2004, 03:40 AM
Some great work folks, beautiful composition.
1 1/2-2h

08 August 2004, 03:45 AM
Dargon and Rasdasa, very nice sketch!!

Ilikesoup, thats a cute one! I like it! :scream:

08 August 2004, 05:10 AM
Great topic and great art from everyone today!!!

painter / 2hr

08 August 2004, 05:39 AM
This one has taken far too long to be considered a sketch anymore. I was pondering putting seaweed and other things (rust, barnacles, etc) all over the robot but I'm just going to call it a sketch for now and move on.

painter 7. too many hours (listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on cd tends to delay any activity)

08 August 2004, 05:55 AM
Ugh. Mouse art.
Don't worry! We all know that it's much harder drawing with a mouse -- besides even with a mouse your art is great and you have a gift for telling a story (to my mind that's what counts most!).

08 August 2004, 06:56 AM
< 1 hour. PS/Mouse. Heh, got a little lazy there... O : )

Wow... alot of hard work put into some of these sketches. Nice job, everyone.

08 August 2004, 10:29 AM
this is really fast.. abt 1 hour maybe lesser... using ps6/wacom tablet

08 August 2004, 11:30 AM
wow... you guys are great!!!

08 August 2004, 02:11 PM
dck and drawmonger -- :blush: Thanks so much. I just saw a cartoon recently called Mucha Lucha, so I had masked wrestling on my mind. Here's a link: (

I thought about gimmicks like putting a Star of David on David's costume but didn't want to risk offending anybody.

Andyman -- only the top 1/3 of your picture loads on my screen.
Too much great work to list! Great job everybody!!

08 August 2004, 03:34 PM
PS - 3h

DCK & Drumwhore!! Both entries are top notch - and both rule for completely different reasons.

08 August 2004, 03:58 PM

Dargon: That's great but David was supposed to win! :(

08 August 2004, 04:46 PM
Dargon: That's great but David was supposed to win! :(
