Here is another one I did today.
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.

08-04-2004, 02:31 AM
Ran out of time on this one, program kept crashing so I lost the first 2 attempts. (1hr ArtRage).


08-04-2004, 02:59 AM

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

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

08-04-2004, 03:40 AM

Dargon and Rasdasa, very nice sketch!!

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

08-04-2004, 05:10 AM
Great topic and great art from everyone today!!!

painter / 2hr

08-04-2004, 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)

08-04-2004, 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!).

08-04-2004, 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.

08-04-2004, 10:29 AM
this is really fast.. abt 1 hour maybe lesser... using ps6/wacom tablet

08-04-2004, 11:30 AM
wow... you guys are great!!!

08-04-2004, 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!!

08-04-2004, 03:34 PM
PS - 3h

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

08-04-2004, 03:58 PM

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

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